Sony have released a free PlayStation app, which gives you access to a myriad of PSN related information.
Features include the ability to:
SourceUnfortunately, the app is currently only available in UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and The Netherlands.
- Check out your PlayStation Network trophies and keep up to date with your friends’ games and online status.
- Discover all the latest games, news and hardware for your PlayStation 3, PSP and PlayStation 2.
- Read all the announcements on the European PlayStation.Blog.
- Share your favourite products or news with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or via e-mail
It's not a particularly useful app in its current form, but hopefully future updates will bring more content. Sony have already hinted that more features are in the pipeline.
Overjoid would like the ability to queue and remotely download demos to their PS3 - how about you?

It may not offer the best driving experience available on Android, but the hours of gaming and depth of content more than make up for it.

Google Goggles is an app that's really impressive, but ultimately not that useful. Well, that's my opinion - it's undoubtedly got its uses, but I've only ever used it to show off.
The above video is an excellent example of this. Although Google Goggles may be able to solve Sudoku puzzles, where's the fun in that?
I'll add it to the "look what my phone can do repertoire", nonetheless

A few days ago, Robbie took the opportunity to share his phone with you, and today it's my turn. Around the same time Robbie upgraded to a Nexus One, I decided to go for an HTC Desire HD.
Whereas Robbie likes his Android vanilla, I've learned to love HTC Sense, their UI overlaid onto Android. I tried a more "vanilla" experience on my old HTC Hero, by installing a different launcher, but much preferred the functionality and improvements made by HTC. The experience has improved with the Desire HD, and the new HTC Sense, which offers more customisation options.

CES has brought a whole host of Android news, but one of the more interesting aspects is the arrival of the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, the world's most advanced mobile processor.
A number of new devices are going to be using the Tegra 2 processor, and along with a faster, more efficient and less laggy phone, Android phones will soon be able to be able to play better games.
The above video previews one such game, Galaxy of Fire 2, from Fishlabs. Not only does it look amazing, but Fishlabs boast that
In addition to this, NVIDIA are planning to launch their own market, full or high quality games, built with the Tegra 2 in mind.
All good, you would think, and where's the bad new? I look at all this and think "my three month old phone is already outdated". I probably should have waiting until CES to upgrade, but is there ever a good time to buy a new phone in this quickly-developing market?
If you play Galaxy on Fire 2 on a Tegra 2 powered Android device it can easily compete with the experience on your gaming PC or console

One of the biggest complaints people have about their Android phones is the battery life. My first Android phone was an HTC Hero, and I used to have to charge it every other day. That was a bit of a shock coming from a Sony Ericsson C905, which used to last a week between charges. The 2.1 update to the Hero appeared to make the phone less energy efficient, and I was down to one charge a day.
A couple of months ago, I upgraded to an HTC Desire HD, which runs Android 2.2 (supposedly less power-hungry), and has a more efficient processor. I still have to charge once a day, but is this really an issue?

At £3.00, it’s one of the more costly Android games, and probably only going to appeal to fans of the series.

With a new Opera Android community set up I thought I would take the opportunity to introduce myself and my Android phone.
So I'm Robbie. I've been using Android since the HTC Hero first came out...

Google have released a teaser video of Android 3.0, more affectionately known as Honeycomb. It's been developed specifically with tablets in mind, and looks pretty swish.
I'm not sure how this fits in with the grand scheme of things - will the phone side of the OS remain on 2.X for the foreseeable future, and 3.X be used for tablets?

So... Overjoid... a new group within the Opera Community dedicated to Android, that little green fella that's taking the mobile phone world by storm.
