Google preparing to launch Google Drive this week with up to 100GB of paid storage?

Google Sydney

By now, Google Drive is no longer a secret. It has appeared enough times now to not only say it exists and is in development but to say that it's coming soon. The exact details behind its offerings haven't fully made their way to the internet but some information coming from Reuters may give further insight into what is already known:

Consumers will get 5 Gigabytes of storage for free with Google Drive, while various versions with incrementally more storage capacity, topping out at about 100 Gibabytes, will be available for monthly fees

Google will be looking to target both consumers and businesses with Google Drive so keeping up with competitors such as Dropbox, Box and Evernote will be vital for them. If the information we've heard thus far is accurate, they'll be well positioned to do so by taking advantage of some of their already existing products such as Google Images, Google Docs, Gmail and even Google+. When will it arrive to masses? No one is certain as of yet but it could be as early as this week, with some saying Tuesday will be the day.

So who won? Check out the list below:

  • Best Overall App – Grand Prize - $100,000 “Monkey Write * Learn Chinese” by Chiu-ki Chan (Square Island LLC): Learn to write Chinese with Monkey Write – a game that makes it fun to learn.

Paid apps back from brief hiatus from Google Play

Google Play

Update 2: And they're back. Crisis is averted!

Update: Google's now telling developers that it's aware of the issue. Help is on the way!

Everybody panic! Paid applications have disappeared from Google Play! Well, that's half true. They're still visible in the Android app, but trying to purchase just leads to an error. But the web portal (at least anything that's not on the front page) has been wiped of anything that costs anything.

It should go without saying (but we're about to say it anyway) that this certainly is a temporary thing. But we imagine there are a few developers of paid applications who are none too happy about this.

In the meantime, free apps are available for download, and books and music appear to be unaffected.

We've got an e-mail into Google to see what's going on.

Asus Transformer Pad TF300 launching in the UK in May

Android Central

Asus' latest tablet offering, the Transformer Pad TF300, has only been with us for a day and a night now. Thankfully for those of us on the European side of the Atlantic, release information has started to emerge with the news of its UK launch. 

The slightly cheaper, slightly less spec'd version of the Transformer Prime will be with us in stores in Blighty from "late may." The tablet will be exclusive -- at least initially anyway -- to the Dixons group of retailers, including high street chains PC World and Currys. The TF300 will go on sale online from "early may" with the devices being available to purchase in the groups physical stores later in the month.

The device will hit other retailers from "late June" -- notice a pattern here? No exact dates are being tossed around at the moment, but we'll surely find out soon enough. As with the US, the Royal Blue version will be on sale initially, followed by the Iceberg White and Torch Red in June and July respectively.

So what about the price? Including the keyboard dock, the TF300 will set you back £399. In all honesty, that isn't a bad price at all when the dock is included. Not to mention taking into account Asus' record for keeping their devices up to date. If you're considering a TF300, then don't forget to check out Jerry's extensive review.

From the Android Forums: Would an HTC One XL ROM work on the AT&T One X?


Sddfdds asks in the Android Central forums,

Just thinking out loud ... would this be possible? Take the XL ROM from HTC (do they provide stock (stock Sense that is) images for their phones in the same way you can get them from Google for the Nexii?) and slap it onto the AT&T One X to get rid of whatever crap they put onto it, and even do the occasional free tether in a pinch? (Do the HTC ROMs have the stock android tether app?)

It might work. I know that's not much of an answer, but every One XL and the AT&T One X may not be identical. Different LTE frequencies may need different equipment, and there's a chance that we'll see several different versions of HTC One XL hardware, with the AT&T version matching some of it (Rogers in Canada comes to mind), or not matching any of it. Hopefully, this isn't the case, but until the "right" people get in there and dig around, the safe bet is to consider the possibility of two (or more) separate animals. Yeah, it can get confusing. The good news is that even of they are different, developers will be able to use bits and pieces of both. This is all hypothetical, as HTC really has no incentive to sell an unbranded, unlocked LTE phone. 

HTC probably won't provide images for the One X or XL the way we see Google provide them. They aren't required to, and with so much proprietary software at play we don't see them bucking the trend any time soon. Chances are someone will be able to leak out RUUs, they seem to get them for every HTC phone, so there will be a "stock" image out there, albeit not necessarily factory authorized.

My best advice, without knowing how everything will play out, is to prepare to root and install custom software if you plan on changing things. You'll be voiding any warranty by swapping out to an XL image anyway, and this way you'll find exactly the options you're looking for. The AT&T version of the One X is bound to be a popular device, and hacking at it will follow shortly after release. 

Have a question you need answered? (Preferably about Android, but we're flexible.) Hit up our Contact Page to get in touch, or hop into the forums!

DropSpace adds real Dropbox sync to Android

Dropbox offers a lovely client for Android, but it's lacking true "sync" functionality. You can merely browse your Dropbox, pull files into the device, and manually upload specific files.

DropSpace is a little Android app that makes Dropbox on Android work like Dropbox - that is, you get real folder synchronization in the background.

When you run the app you're prompted for your Dropbox credentials. After logging in to Dropbox, you get to select which device folders you'd like to sync to the cloud. It's a straightforward mapping process: You select a folder on the device, and then specify where in Dropbox it should go.

The interface is rather clunky, at least for now. The biggest annoyance is that you can't edit your "sync list": if you add a folder and then wish to remove it, you must delete the entire list of folders and start over.

In terms of functionality, it works quite well. I tested it with the camera folder, and it was nice to be able to take my photos using the lean default Camera app and have them sync up to the cloud instantly.

How ‘In-Cell’ Technology Could Make the Next iPhone Ultra-Thin

We're all familiar with Apple's love affair with thin devices. Although the third-generation iPad surprised many by gaining about half a millimeter of thickness, it looks like Apple could be back to trimming product dimensions by using a new kind of display technology in the next iPhone.

Late-night poll: What will Samsung call its new flagship phone?

Leaked images from Tenhte.vn

There's been no shortage of news and speculation this week surrounding the Galaxy S III -- or whatever Samsung ends up calling it. Mostly folks have been discussing whether this or that rumored spec will turn out to be accurate, but just as intriguing is Samsung's choice of branding for its new flagship smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S III is the obvious choice, as it indicates a clear successor to last year's Galaxy S II. But it's just as likely Samsung may drop the roman numerals, or follow in Apple's footsteps by eliminating numbers altogether with a "new Galaxy" or "new Galaxy S". We've seen leaked images in the past week showing a "Samsung Galaxy S i9300" splash screen, so that's certainly a possibility.

There's been at least one rumor this week that suggests Samsung may be having second thoughts about calling this thing the Galaxy S III, so anything's possible at this stage. Be sure to let us know what you think in tonight's Android Central late-night poll, and keep following all our coverage in the lead up to the May 3 announcement!
