Most of our times are spent in front of the computer and normally we would check both phone and computer screens while at work or at home. Why not have everything shown on your computer instead?
A couple of developers had introduced the Remote Notifier for Android which pushes updates from your Android device to your computer. It comes with 3 versions, for Windows, Mac and Linux.
Currently it supports notification for call, SMS, battery status and voicemail. Unfortunately you can’t reply messages or answer calls at the moment. Connectivity is currently supported on WiFi and Bluetooth while USB is still lacking. It would be great if we could also reply SMS or answer calls remotely in future.
You can download the Remote Notifier here.

Celcom has commenced registration of interest for the BlackBerry Torch 9800 which they claim to be the first to offer in Malaysia. To make the pre-registration more attractive, they are giving away a Jabra Bluetooth headset (worth RM125), 8GB microSD card (worth RM68) and a Energizer Portable (worth RM58) for the first 100 to register and purchase the actual device.
When Celcom claims to be the first, we got a little surprised as Maxis too had launched its pre-registration for the BlackBerry Torch last month. A quick check on Maxis site revealed that the ROI and mentions of Torch has been removed or hidden from its front page and BlackBerry section. The Maxis BlackBerry Torch ROI form however is still accessible via this direct link.
Anyway, if you’re eyeing for a Torch, why not sign up for both ROI forms and see which one gives you better pricing. After all, pre-registration is not confirmation for actual purchase.

Android Developers Blog had released a new snapshot of the Android version cake for 1st September. Today the latest Android 2.2 Froyo had taken a bigger slice than ever at 28.7% which holds the number 2 spot after Android 2.1 Eclair of 41.7%. Previously Android 2.1 dominated more than half of all Android devices out there.
As expected with new Android 2.2 updates, and new devices with Froyo installed, it is no surprise this latest version is gaining traction quickly. The older Android 1.5 and 1.6 versions are shrinking with 12.0% and 17.5% respectively. However we don’t expect them to die off dramatically anytime soon thanks to the likes of Sony Ericsson and Dell that are still clinging onto legacy versions.
Swype beta for Android is expirying soon. If you didn’t get Swype pre-installed on your device you would need to update to continue using it. According to Android Central,
there are a couple of bug fixes and enhancements for this Swype update.
Among the changes are support for German and Portuguese language, added disable auto-space gesture by swyping from spacebar to backspace, quick language change, improved word prediction and gestures.
This is strictly for existing Swype Beta users as they are not accepting new sign ups currently. You must also uninstall both Swype and SwypeInstaller before proceeding. Those with Swype pre-installed like the Samsung Galaxy S are advised not to download.
For those who didn’t know, Swype is also available for Nokia touch screen phones too.
