According to android-developers, Google has now released the Android 1.5 Native Developers Kit (NDK) which can be downloaded from the Android developer website.

The Android 1.5 Native Developers Kit enables Android developers to generate C and C++ libraries which run directly on the Android platform rather than being routed via Dalvik.

However the Android team does warn developers to be careful going native and have said?”your application will be more complicated, have reduced compatibility, have no access to framework APIs, and be harder to debug.”

Android 1.5 Native Developers Kit provides tools and build files for C and C++ sources; a way to embed native libraries on Android devices, and Android 1.5 documentation, tutorials and samples.

We was sent an email asking if we could review ?Ringtone Expressions? and normally we would say no to these sort of hands-on reviews, so glad we decided to take a look and try it out.

Let us chat about what ?Ringtone Expressions? is about, at the moment it is in beta stage and is a service that will give you awesome ringtones very fast, yes custom ringtones on to modern day mobile phones and Smartphones, we will explain how we did it below.

?Ringtone Expressions empowers users to create an unlimited amount of custom ringtones for their mobile phones and express these creations to friends on Facebook and Twitter. With an amazingly intuitive Windows desktop client, users can create ringtones in mere seconds from any .MP3 in their music library, YouTube video and songs they purchase from Amazon MP3 or the iTunes Music store.?

The new iPhone 3GS delivers video recording, but as with most iPhones doesn?t come waterproof, or does it?

Purely by accident it appears that if the iPhone 3GS inadvertently drops into say a swimming pool while recording video, the iPhone 3GS still works.

And we have video proof for you to view below, and furthermore the guy who dropped the iPhone 3GS says even days after the accident the handset still works just fine. So it would appear the iPhone 3GS is indeed waterproof, although I would advise against trying this yourself.

We have a couple of videos for your viewing pleasure, which can be viewed below. Now although a final jailbreak for the iPhone 3GS hasn?t been released yet that doesn?t stop hackers from having a go.

The first hacks of the iPhone 3GS are PlayStation 1 and Game Boy Advanced emulators which we have the video demonstrations for you.

It shows that the iPhone 3GS seems to be capable of running these at 150 ? 225 fps with no frameskipping, which seems fairly impressive, so hit up the videos below and check them out.

Nokia N97 on PAYG from 3: £320

by Techno Witch on June 26, 2009

According to thelink, the new Nokia flagship smartphone, the Nokia N97 will apparently be available on PAYG from 3 in the United Kingdom.

The Nokia N97 is the latest addition to 3?s mobile portfolio and is to offer the Nokia N97 for as little as £35 per month on signing a contract of 18 months for which you get 300 minutes or texta on 3 to 3 every month and free voicemail.

However, 3 is likely to offer the Nokia N97 for £320 on PAYG, and depending on the amount you top up will depend on what benefits you?ll receive, although most common is 150MB of internet storage, free Skype for life, Windows Messenger and 90 days free voicemail.

Celebrity BlackBerry spotting time, and this time it is Twilight actress Kristen Stewart who gets pictures sporting a BlackBerry smartphone courtesy of geeksugar.

Kristen Stewart?s character in Twilight carries a Nokia 7360, but in real life Kristen packs the power of BlackBerry, with her baby pink BlackBerry Curve 8300, which was spotted recently when Kristen was out and about with Joan Jett.

What is strange though is taking into consideration Kristen?s frequent trips to the Apple Store; one would presume she carries an iPhone. Still proof is in the picture as they say; she is sporting that baby pink BlackBerry Curve 8300.

Video: BlackBerry Man Anthem from Sway

by Techno Witch on June 26, 2009

For all you BlackBerry smartphone fans out there in the world we have a new BlackBerry song video for your viewing pleasure which is located below.

The BlackBerry song is called BlackBerry Man and comes courtesy of Sway, obviously it?s a rap, and to be honest on first listening gets on the nerves somewhat, but no doubt after listening to it a couple of times will become catchy.

The video has been set to images linked to certain words in the song, and lasts for almost 5.5 minutes, and will no doubt become a favourite amongst BlackBerry owners. Anyway, hit up the video below and feel free to drop us your views.

Pretty gutted to hear that Michael Jackson had passed away after a massive heart attack, sadly the music icon dies after having a cardiac arrest and he was only 50.
