Social upheaval on Android, with Facebook, Twitter and Zynga takeovers

Nov 4, 2010

Some of the biggest names in social media and social gaming have had dedicated Android releases in the past 24 hours, including two new apps from Facebook, an update from Twitter and a Zynga debut.

New & improved Android apps

Twitter has also updated its Android app, adding a tweet details page, accessed by clicking on a given tweet. This feature is already included in Twitter’s app for the iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone. In addition to the new details update, Twitter for Android has been given a speed boost as well, with changes being made to the tweet retrieval process for smoother timeline loading.

Smile for the tablet

To check out all these new apps and features, how about the latest Android device from Archos? The Archos 70, an inexpensive tablet priced under $300, has a 7-inch screen, runs Android 2.2 and has a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor. Of particular interest is the front-facing camera, a feature still absent from the iPad.
