How To Stop Honeycomb From Adding New Apps To Desktop

Android mobile operating system has captured a large chunk on users in the mobile computing due to its ease of use and compatibility. Android market is also the major selling point which attracts a lot of users to buy the Android compatible smartphones.
The latest version of the Android platform is Honeycomb, also known as Android 3.0. It is mainly designed for the large screen mobiles or you can say specifically for Tablets.
The all new Honeycomb will have all the previous plus points of Android platform with some new innovations like 3d experience and new widgets which are more users interactive.
There are also some powerful upgrades added in the web browser which provides tabbed browsing, auto fill option, synchronization with Google Chrome bookmarks, and private browsing.

If you have a Honeycomb tablet, you might also find a new feature which adds a shortcut of the apps, on your home screen or desktop, which you have downloaded and installed from Android market.
It is a wonderful feature for a new user who wants a quick access to newly installed apps, but the same option can be very annoying for a user who is pretty comfortable with the functioning of the Android smartphones and tablets.
It might also make a jumbled up screen if you have downloaded too many apps and at times it can be also very difficult to find the desired apps in the list of all these shortcuts.
Perform the following steps to get rid of this problem:

Step1: Launch the Android market from your Android smartphone or tablet. One you see the Android market, select the “My apps” option from the top right side of the screen.

Step2: This will show you the list of all the apps which you have installed on your Tablet so far. From the same screen, select “Settings” options from top right corner of the screen.

Step3: Once you click on “Settings” button, it will drop down two options “Notify me about app update” and “Add shortcuts for new app” with the checkboxes in front. Make sure to uncheck the checkbox in front of “Add shortcuts for new app”.

This will disable the functionality of adding shortcuts for all the installed apps on you tablet.Using such simple steps can enhance the user experience and it also allows users to control the behaviors of their smartphone of tablet. It is not necessary that all the default settings are useful for all the users and that is why Android makers provide such options to customize the default settings.

Windows® Phone 7 or Google Android®?

If one is referring Gingerbread, it is believed that it is in fact Android 2.3 and not the 3.0 as rumoured previously. It is not actually known whether the specific date on which the Gingerbread operating system may be released, however, it is heard that it is going to be before the year end, and it will be in early part of the year 2011.

So far as Droid X is concerned whether it will be updated, it is presumed that there is a high possibility of it being so; however, one will have to wait for more time prior to Motorola comes around for releasing an updated version which is compatible with software of its own. It will not be wise to assume that there will be hardware update for the Droid X soon. If one is prepared to drop one’s Storm, it will not be right to assume that there is difficulty in getting the Droid X presently, particularly because the prices are beginning to drop.

Will a Windows Phone 7 handset be much user friendly as compared to Android? Windows Phone 7 is a type of platform which is new, but one will be best served with the Wilndows Phone 7 handset in comparison to other kind of two choices.

Google™: Nexus One Gingerbread update is coming soon

Android, Google Nexus One Smartphone and Android developer phone are terms which are inter-related with each other. Originally, Android Inc. developed an interesting mobile operating system called the Android. Google bought this company in the year 2005. In 2007, the mobile industry leaders and a multinational alliance of technology leaders like Google Inc., T-Mobile, HTC, Motorola and others collaborated on the development of the Android through the open handset alliance, further growing into the Android open source project. With Google spearheading the venture, it was really interesting to see how the concept grew. Google then went ahead to introduce the Nexus One.

Naturally, this Google flagship smartphone got priority over everyone else in updates of all kinds. A logical question that now arises is, with the Gingerbread OS introduced already on other phones, why is the Nexus One still not privy to the same. In the case of Apple, or Windows-based smart phones, all updates keep coming periodically, automatically to the existing devices up to the limit of the hardware capability existing within the phone.

Android is different. In the case of Apple or Windows, the users are dependent on new introductions, changes and updates on the said companies and all they need to know is how much needs to be paid. The Android Open Source Project instead has everything wide open and transparent about everything in the pipeline or ready or implemented, with all information of development and open knowhow. Here, the phone user is dependent on the manufacturer, the carrier and other factors before he gets an upgrade or an update. Android users also have the facility of many manufacturers with a wide variety of firmware at very low prices in comparison to Apple or Windows.

Probably, in the case of the Nexus One, Google wants to benefit from its new product, the Nexus S. The Nexus S has been launched with the latest OS – Gingerbread – the Android 2.3. Early January, a Tweet, also referred to Google having officially announced that Gingerbread would be coming to the Nexus One in a few weeks. Something is holding them back. Even after all these questions have been raised, Google has confirmed that Gingerbread for the Nexus One is on its way.

It is difficult to imagine why the Google or the Android team is delaying the implementation of the Gingerbread OS. The Gingerbread OS has various features, over its earlier 2.1 and Froyo updates. Better speed, better battery life, better application management, a more interesting user interface and a color scheme to add. Least but not the last, the new keyboard supporting multi-touch input and smart auto correct function, better camera management, Near Field Communication (if your hardware supports it), larger screen sizes, Internet calling – SIP based, improved camera management and file management are some of the features to look for.

The new apps integrated help better download management and even a system clipboard for cut and paste improved features. Barely has the Gingerbread been introduced, all Android users are already waiting for their new and Honeycomb OS. The application arena with the Android Open Source Project is a big eye-opener for one and all.
