Wine Makers/Drunks Develop The MOPS Android Gaming Phone

The development of Android as a mobile gaming OS has been on the up and up, which I’m happy about. Until now though, I’d never seen a supposedly dedicated gaming Android phone that actually had an potential. Well it seems that developers just needed a bit of assistance from our good buddy alcohol to come up with a brilliant design.

Shanzhai Samsung Nexus S To Be Released

For those serious Android and Google fans out there like myself, there’s really only one option when buying a new phone, and that’s Google’s own Samsung Nexus S. If you’ve been following Gadgets Republic a while you’ll have seen me profess my obsession with Anroid, but I never mentioned that I personally own the Samsung Nexus S. If I were allowed to use only one word to describe my feelings for the device, it would be LOVE. Shanzhai developers have finally gotten around to making a knockoff, but the question remains….have they done the original justice?

ZenithKnight, who if you haven’t figure out by now is an Apple lover, has decided to take a poke at the system.

Introducing the Gooapple G22: The Unholy Spawn of Google and Apple (Video)

We’ve seen plenty of Shanzhai gimmicks over the years but this is by far the most disturbing yet. It’s the Gooapple phone, and it’s basically the spawn of Satan’s attempt at creating a phone. As a pretty serious Android fan I’m feeling a bit quezy looking at the combination of both my favorite and most despised tech icons (although that could just be lunch). The designers didn’t put much thought into what my feelings would be on the phone’s branding, but they have actually put some thought in to it’s specs. At the end of the day though, the best thing about the G22 is it’s mind blowing boot up intro.

Amazon Android App Store Goes Live, Works In China…For Now

Last week Amazon’s Android App Store finally went live, and it was about time too. All of us Android users in China have basically been stuck using Google’s (unfortunately crappy) Android Market. The problem with the Android Market isn’t the number of apps, or it’s ease of use. It’s problem is the fact that Android users here are not allowed purchase any of the paid apps available.
