  • Alright, forget what I wrote about netflix yesterday. Apparently netflix has gotten either a new version of their app up and ready for download on the android market, or whatever backend issues they might have been facing have been resolved.

Which ever, This morning I deleted the apk and reinstalled fresh from the market. Launched it and it played nice. Here is a quick vid of the whole ordeal...

  • Yes, if you are rocking a Samsung Galaxy S device in the US, your wait for the Netflix app is finally over. Unfortunately it does not work..

You can head over to the XDA thread and try to figure it out, buy will end up dissapointed. The apk’s floating around will either not work whatsoever, or let you actually login but give you the infamous 1005 error when...

So what, its just another Windows phone 7 device. By the time it releases nobody will care. The phone while still in preproduction is still worth noting. Although it may not be able to contend with the...
