• Samsung Galaxy Nexus with Ice Cream Sandwich hands-on (video)

    The Galaxy Nexus (formerly referred to as the Nexus Prime) carries on the Nexus torch in spectacular fashion, and we've just spent a few quality moments with one here at the launch event. Design-wise, it's clear that the Nexus S DNA is here, though the rear reminds us most of the Galaxy S II. Those who abhor physical buttons will also be delighted, and while we'd gotten used to the whole Power + Home for a screenshot on the GSII, Power + Volume Down works just fine on this fellow.......

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich now official, tons of enhancements

    PSHax member - Google has taken the stage in Hong Kong to make the next version of Android OS, nicknamed Ice Cream Sandwich, a thing of reality.

  • Motorola RAZR to get updated to Ice Cream Sandwich in early 2012

    Mutricy mentioned that while the company's new flagship device was designed for Gingerbread, plans have been set to introduce the latest version of Android in the start of 2012, with a more precise date naturally on its way. Given past experience, however, it's probable that the unbranded version of the device will get the refresh ahead of the Droid RAZR on Verizon, so US users may need to exercise a wee bit of patience here. Regardless, it's time for the competition to step up......

  • HTC Rezound render resoundingly revealed- wait next November 10th

    Hark! The first renders of the HTC Rezound have appeared online, thanks to some of the device's cases going up for pre-order. You can see that, like the Sensation XE, the phone has red-glowing soft keys -- a bit of a departure from HTC's traditionally conservative design language. If you recall, the phone formerly called Vigor is said to have a 4.3-inch screen, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB RAM, Beats Audio and an 8MP rear camera.....

Koush developing an alternative Android Market

Posted by Mohd Khairun Nasir Saadi On - - 0 comments


If you have been in the Android scene for any amount of time then you have probably heard of CyanogenMod or ClockworkMod. Well a member of the CyanogenMod team, a rather well known member of the Android community, "Koush" has announced he is developing an alternative Android Market for banned applications.

As a member of the CyanogenMod team, and developer of ClockworkMod itself, Kousik Dutta (a.k.a Koush) has been involved in the ROM community and Android hacking in general for quite some time. He has now started up working on an alternative Android Market which will house applications that have been banned from the Android Market. Now we aren't taking about crappy cloned games or maleware/virus riddled applications so fear not.

What will be in this new Android marketplace are applications like game emulators that have been banned, tethering apps, ROMs, one-click root applications and things of that nature every Android geek likes to play with. Before you get all excited though and rush out to find where this geek heaven is, this new alternative Android market is currently in the early stages of development so it isn't actually ready yet. However, the idea is rather cool and one that a lot of the more tech-savvy members of the Android community will enjoy.
