Just days after Google Books went live in the UK so too has Google Movies although not quite completely. The Android Market hasn’t been updated to allow you to browse the movies available to rent the way it was updated for books. As it stands you have to log in to YouTube and rent the movie from there, you will then see it appear in the videos app on your tablet. The service currently isn’t available for handsets as it is in the USA and I’m not sure if it’s available on tablets other than the Motorola Xoom. Movies are priced at either £2.49 or £3.49, Google says there are over a thousand to choose from currently but if you’re like me then there will only be a handful you’ll actually want to watch. Once you purchase a movie rental you have 30 days to begin watching, once you do you then have 48 hours of viewing time.
Have you tried out the rental service yet? How did you find it? Also be sure to let us know if it works on tablets other than the Xoom in the comments.

Those of you on T-Mobile who have been holding your breath for the upcomingHTC One S will soon be able to exhale. A few leaked images from some newly leaked internal training slides hint that a launch is fast approaching. Really there’s not much here we didn’t already know about the device, but it’s interesting to see how T-Mobile will try and market the device.
TMoNews also goes on to report that the April 25th is looking like the new launch date, providing everything goes according to plan and there’s no unexpected delays. Any T-Mobile customers have their checkbook ready for the One S? Or will you continue holding out for something better?
UPDATE: Looks like TMoNews was able to get a hold of another leak, this time confirming the April 25th launch date directly from inside those T-Mo training slides.
Everybody likes to claim “firsties.” And today, Chrysler hopes to claim that title with their “industry first,” in-vehicle wireless charging system for the 2013 Dodge Dart. The wireless charging system will come as an available option and carry a cost of $200 plus installation. After installation, the system will be found inside the center console where a user can simply toss their compatible device in, start their car up, and begin charging. Just set it, and forget it.
Of course, you will need a phone with these capabilities either built in (super rare) or with some sort of 3rd party solution to take advantage of wireless charging. Still, with rumors that the Samsung Galaxy S III’s “killer feature” could be wireless charging, maybe we’ll start seeing this become more of a trend in the coming months. Full press release can be found below.
Chrysler Group LLC Introduces Industry-first In-vehicle Wireless Charging
Charges iPhone, Blackberry, MP3 Players and Droid-based devices
New Mopar® Feature First Available on All-new 2013 Dodge Dart
April 9, 2012 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – Look mom, no wires.
After being the first to eliminate heavy, bulky owner manuals from its vehicles, Chrysler Group LLC, through its Mopar® division, will now be the first to eliminate unsightly dangling power cords in its vehicles by offering in-vehicle wireless charging.
The company will first make the technology available on the all-new 2013 Dodge Dart that arrives in dealerships in the second quarter of this year.
“At Mopar, we look for every single opportunity to make our customers’ lives easier,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “Our industry-first in-vehicle wireless charging system is the perfect solution for those connected customers who are always on the go.”
For easy access, a seamlessly integrated power bin, measuring 8.27 inches by 9.5 inches by 3.25 inches, is installed just below the center stack and in front of the center console. The bin has a built-in charging grid that is activated when customers place in their battery-powered device. The unit begins to charge when the vehicle is started. A phone case, specifically designed for a variety of smartphones, is required and included with the feature.
Mopar in-vehicle wireless charging is available for $199.99, plus installation (part number 82213216).
While some would argue that a new device “soak test” holds no value when it comes to its newsworthiness, I beg to differ. Soak tests can be a great way for users to get a preview of what’s coming around the bend for their beloved devices. Take the upcoming Motorola DROID RAZR/ Maxx soak test we told you guys about last week. While at first it was scheduled to be nothing more than your average maintenance update (that admittedly, never happened), it now looks like things could have taken a turn for the better.
According to Droid-Life, who received a tip from a member of the Motorola Feedback Network that the previous Razr/Maxx 6.12.181 software update has been scrapped. Instead, Motorola is going full steam ahead with the it-couldn’t-come-any-sooner Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade. All of this, coming form the Moto FN forums manager, who made the following statement (but has since been removed):
The Motorola Feedback Network is an almost “secret society” forum where daring users can sign their life away and become beta testers for new device updates. Now, if this rumored ICS soak test checks out, and there aren’t any device threatening bugs, we can expect a full-on rollout for the masses shortly thereafter. And that, my friends, is why we like getting the inside scoop on soak tests. You guys hyped?
Used smartphone buyers, who prefer to save a little dough by purchasing previously owned smartphones off eBay and Craigslist, may soon find little risk involved. WSJ reported today that the 4 major wireless networks in the US are teaming up with the FCC to stop the sale of stolen/lost phones once and for all. Apparently, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile all have plans to create a common database that will deny both voice and data services to devices that come up flagged as stolen or lost.
At first, carriers will come up with their own databases and sometime within the next 18 months, those databases will be pooled into one centralized repository. Currently, only Sprint as Verizon blacklist stolen/lost devices, and only within their respective networks (I’ve also heard talk that T-Mobile has finally begun blacklisting IMEI’s ahead of this announcement). A stolen phone on Sprint, for instance, can still be brought to a MetroPCS store for activation. However this wont be the case for long with even smaller, regional carriers getting in on this new database. This should not only effectively end the sale of stolen/lost devices forever, but those would-be opportunists, looking to cash-in on a deal.
What do you guys think? Is this a great idea that could lead to less insurance claims and bystanders who actually return lost devices? Can you find some kind of negative impact this could have on consumers?
