Wordfeud has competition coming to the Android Store later of the month. Words With Friends, the popular scrabble-like game for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad is finally coming over to the Android platform after being requested countlessly by many Android users. Just a little while ago, the WWF posted up some teaser pics on their facebook page of the android version running on a Droid. They also go to say that the app is near completion and should be out by the end of the month.
Nothing has been announced yet if there will be a minimum firmware required to run the app, as well as if there will be both free and paid versions of the app.
All I know is that when the version is released, unfortunately I’ll be dropping my wordfeud and moving over to WWF.

Ok trying this out strictly posting from my iPhone 4 so forgive me if it comes out all strange or funny looking but here goes!
So a just the other day, Mozilla released the mobile version of Firefox 4 for Android and Mameo. Following a pretty decent alpha (and pre-alpha) period, Mozilla promises improvements in stability, performance and functionality. On the Mameo platform, Firefox mobile previously was under the name of Fennec, this is a shift for the Mameo platform, bringing the branding of the app to Firefox Mobile.
Bringing a slew of new features such as the Layers framework that aims to improve scrolling and zooming responsiveness, Firefox Sync, which basically makes this a superset of Firefox Home, and last but not least, support for HTML5.
If you are a current user of Fennec for Mameo, or a brand new user, or even an Android user looking to experience a new browsing experience, Firefox Mobile is definitely something you should check out! Hit the source link below to download the betas for either Mameo or Android.

Once we sell these devices, the Nexus One will no longer be available online from Google. Customer support will still be available for current Nexus One customers. And Nexus One will continue to be sold by partners including Vodafone in Europe, KT in Korea, and possibly others based on local market conditions.
