BlackBerry gets its game on at BBW, scores Jetpack Joyride and Sonic

BlackBerry gets its game on at BBW

One of the things BlackBerry has never really had going for it, is a deep games catalog. Now, that isn’t about to change in one fell swoop, but things are about to get a lot better at BlackBerry World 2012. RIM’s head of gaming, Anders Jeppsson, took to twitter to let the world know about the impressive pile of titles heading to the PlayBook and BlackBerry 10. The biggest names are certainly Jetpack Joyride, from Halfbrick (the studio behind Fruit Ninja), and Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1. Other games in the pipeline include Galaxy on Fire 2 and Star Marine, while Tomb Raider fans can get down with Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light starting today. Keep an ear out for more to hit during this week’s BBW.

Micromax’s Superfone A50 Ninja enters India with AISHA voice assistant, forgets its shuriken

Micromax's A50 Superfone Ninja enters India with AISHA voice assistant, forgets its shuriken

Hoping to compete with the Siris of the world, Micromax has announced its new Superfone A50 Ninja alongside a novel feature dubbed AISHA — which is short for Artificial Intelligence Speech Handset Assistant. Similar to Cupertino’s personal secretary, AISHA vows to help folks with every-day elements such as making calls, setting up calendar events and even reporting what the weather looks like. Much to our disappointment, however, the A50 Ninja runs a not-so-new flavor of Android — Gingerbread to be exact — and Micromax left out any mention of Android 4.0. On the specs front, the dual-SIM Superfone sports a 3.1-inch display (mum’s the word on the resolution), a two-megapixel shooter, Bluetooth 2.0 capabilities and an unspecified 650MHz processor. All in all, thanks to its 4,999 rupees (around $95) budget price, we can’t imagine you’d complain too much. Be sure to hit up the Micromax link below if you’re interested in grabbing one of these.

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Whatever Google can do, Amazon can do… too? Sure seems it, as the latter is celebrating a rather momentous occasion by giving back to the people that have brought it this far: you (and you, and you!). The Amazon Appstore for Android has officially been alive and kicking for 12 months, and Bezos and co. are slashing prices for a week instead of tossing one forgettable party. We’re told to expect rock-bottom rates on iconic titles such as Fruit Ninja, Wolfram Alpha, Splashtop Remote Desktop, Dr. Seuss’s The Shape of Me and Other Stuff, TuneIn Radio Pro, TETRIS, PAC-MAN, The Lost City, MONOPOLY, AccuWeather Platinum and more. Birthday deals start today with one of the top paid apps, Plants vs. Zombies, at 67 percent off, and you can expect to see more in the coming days. Crack open that dusty wallet and hit the source link, vaquero.

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

After delivering over 25 billion apps from its App Store, Apple has listed the top-25 free and paid apps of all time for the iPad and iPhone.

Facebook came in as the top free iPhone app, while Apple’s Pages edged out Angry Birds for the top paid iPad app spot. Other popular apps such as Words With Friends, Fruit Ninja, Pandora, Shazam, Cut The Rope and Netflix all made top-10 appearances on Apple’s various lists as well.

NVIDIA officially brands Tegra 3′s five-core quad-core architecture as 4-PLUS-1

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012
NVIDIA officially brands Tegra 3's five-core quad-core architecture as 4-PLUS-1

NVIDIA’s cooked up a few ways to describe the Tegra 3′s quad-core-with-a-spare architecture, usually by giving the extra Cortex A9 a cute nickname like “ninja,” or “companion.” Until now, the proper description was “Variable Symmetrical Multiprocessing,” or, vSMP for short. Despite how much fun (and technically accurate) some of these descriptions may have been, however, they just aren’t marketable. “Our customers wanted a name for it that’s unique and descriptive,” writes mobile business unit general manager Michael Rayfield, “A name they could put on a box or a store sign that immediately represents its value.” That official name is the 4-PLUS-1 quad-core architecture, he says, and you’ll probably see it pop up a few times in Barcelona next week if LG’s latest offering is any indication. It lacks something in pizzaz, to be sure, but we’ll admit that it is at least descriptive of the Tegra 3′s technical chops. In related news, NVIDIA promises the Tegra will be less fickle about its new moniker than the symbol formerly known as the artist formerly known as Prince.

Windows Phone Marketplace now home to more than 30,000 apps

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

The Windows Marketplace for Mobile is now home to more than 30,000 applications according to app tracking website WindowsPhoneAppList. On July 2nd, the Windows Marketplace for Microsoft’s Windows Phones passed the 25,000 milestone. By comparison, Apple’s iTunes App Store is populated with more than 500,000 applications and Google confirmed in May that the Android Market has more than 200,000 apps. The Windows Marketplace’s paid app list is loaded with games — as it should be considering the great Xbox Live integrations — and the top-five paid apps are Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1, Need for Speed Unleashed and Cro-Mag Rally.

Wii HD rearing long-rumored head at E3 2011?

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

Another year, another chance for Nintendo to deliver what it’s alternately denied and teased since day one — a successor to the Nintendo Wii capable of displaying games in high resolution. Will Nintendo finally make it happen? Multiple anonymous sources say yes: they told Game Informer, IGN and Kotaku that just such a system will debut at E3 2011 in June, possibly with a teaser of some sort next month. While the ninja moles didn’t provide many hard details — mostly just the typical iffy claim that the system will wipe the floor with competitors in terms of speeds and feeds — they told IGN that it will support 1080p resolutions and be backwards-compatible with games for the Wii. Naturally, we’ll believe it when we see it… so here’s hoping we see it fairly quickly.

Motorola Droid Xtreme shows its face, backside

Friday, June 4th, 2010

droid-xtreme-leak

The crazy cats over at Droid Life are back once again with yet another leak of the Motorola MB810 which Droid Life claims will be sold as the Droid Xtreme and not the Droid Shadow. In the past we have seen this phone from various angles, but this is the first time we’ve ever seen its backside. Two things to take away from these pics. First is the camera which is clearly labelled as 8 megapixels with HD video and is flanked by a dual-LED flash. The second thing is UI customization. We’ve already seen the Xtreme powered on, but this picture gives us a much clearer look at the more subtle UI customization brought forth in what some are calling “ninja blur.” Are you liking how the Xtreme is shaping up?

Verizon Wireless to offer early upgrades for some feature phone users headed to a smartphone

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

Verizon 3G Upgrade Offer

Nothing like a late day ninja check-in. A trusted source has come through with a Verizon memo outlining an early upgrade program for those users looking to upgrade from a feature phone to a smartphone a bit early. Our source indicates this promotion is for Sam’s Club and Target kiosks and is only available in certain locations… but hey, an early upgrade is an early upgrade. The move is aimed to rope feature phone users into a more luxurious, and expensive, smartphone with the accompanying data plan, but that doesn’t mean those ready to upgrade can’t take advantage. Terms of the deal include:

  • Available in Northern California Region, Central Texas, Upstate New York, and Ohio/Pennsylvania
  • User can not already have a 3G smartphone
  • User will not be eligible for another upgrade for 12 months
  • Customers can’t already be eligible for a standard upgrade
  • Can’t be combined with other offers
  • $29.99+ data plan required
  • New 2-year contract must be signed

Any takers? Larger image after the break.

Palm Pixi gets unboxed before its release

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

Palm-Pixi-13

Oh, you don’t remember? Well we’re back at it again, this time with one of our connects doing the unboxing ritual for us. There’s not all that much exciting to report, you know, with the handset shipping with a USB cable, charging adapter, instruction manual and battery. But hey, an unboxing is an unboxing damn it, and we’ve got the goods. We promised ourselves we weren’t going to take any shots but, with the Palm Pre going for $99 in Canada and the awesome HTC DROID Eris selling for $99 on Verizon, is anyone really going to spring for a $99-priced Palm Pixi? Only time will tell.

Thanks, Ninja J!

Apple shipping iPhone 3GS’ resistant to jailbreaking?

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

jailbroken iphone

To be perfectly honest we’re surprised it took this long. Reports are surfacing that Apple is now shipping a new bootrom with the iPhone 3GS that is resistant to the 24kpwn exploit used by the Dev-Team and others to jailbreak the iPhone. DevTeam member MuscleNerd confirms that the bootrom update, dubbed iBoot-359.3.2, would make jailbreaking new iPhone’s “impossible” for the time being. Man, does Apple hate when people muck with the iPhone or what! Your move Dev Team — and godspeed. Or maybe our ninja GeoHot can find a way around it? We’ll see!
