Now Get Netflix on your unsupported Android device

Netflix launches their much awaited service for Android only to bum users out by having a minuscule list of supported devices. Are you dying to use Netflix but are one of the many with an unsupported device? You might just be in luck. The Android wizards over at XDA have managed to remove the device check for this service, hence allowing pretty much anyone to be able to stream Netflix services on their Android phones. The method seems to be a hit or miss, and majority of the success rate is found on smartphones running Android 2.3 or later. But there’s no harm in trying. Head over to XDA and try it out for yourself.

Kingston Digital Launches its Fastest USB 3.0 Flash Drive, which can write at 80 Mbps

Kingston have just announced that they are releasing a new flash drive which can write at 80 Mbps. Dubbed the USB 3.0 Data Traveller the flash drive is nearly three times faster than existing thumb drives. The drive can read at 100 MBps and write at 70 Mbps and if it sounds too good to be true, you would be right. To get these speeds when the USB drive is plugged into USB 3.0 port and they are thin on the ground at the moment. You could still buy one as it will work in the USB 2.0 port too but that would be largely pointless. In their press release, the company mentions that their G2 Pen Drive is ideal choice for professionals who want to take advantages of all the features offered

Google updates browser-based Maps for Android and iOS

Google — noting that 40% of its Google Maps users are on mobile devices — updated its Google Maps Web app for iOS and Android today. We’ve been pretty satisfied with the native applications on Android and iOS, but the website allows you to access many of the options that are available from a desktop browser, too. That includes the ability to view your location, search nearby areas with suggestions and auto-complete, get directions for driving, transit, biking, or walking, view different lays, view Place pages, and access your starred locations. We’re particularly excited about the option for accessing our starred locations, a feature that’s not available in the native iOS

Nokia Windows Phones to pack dual-core processors

Nokia will launch 12 Windows Phone devices in 2012 — and a few of them will offer dual-core processors. Speaking to Forbes during STMicroelectronics’ analyst day, STMicroelectronics’ CEO Carlo Bozotti confirmed that his company still has “very close relations” with Nokia and that it will be “an important supplier” in Nokia’s future Windows Phone products. A few of Nokia’s phones will be powered by ST-Ericsson’s U8500 system-on-a-chip (SoC) package, which offers support ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core processors. Nokia is said to already have a Windows Phone in the works, and while the company has set a 2012 target date for its debut, Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop has express

We gave the phone, and Star Battalion, a test run during CTIA and were left impressed with the quality of the controls.
