If you didn't know, HTC has promised to provide bootloader unlock support for all devices released after September of 2011 as well as many others released before, and they have been keeping good on that promise with added support for many devices over the last few months.

They're still going strong, and added several more devices to the list earlier today.

There you have it, the newly supported devices are the HTC Desire Z, ChaCha, Aria, Droid Incredible, Status, and T-Mobile G2.

Hulu-Plus-Android-300x209

Quite a few of us were overly excited when Hulu Plus landed in the Android Market last year, only to be crushed when we realized only a few select devices were compatible. While Hulu has been bringing support to more devices since the release, it's just moving entirely too slow. Many of us are blue in the face from holding our breath while waiting for support, and frankly, I gave up the wait a long time ago.

Right around the end of last month, we found a new social game by Disney, and to be completely honest, I didn't think it would be that spectacular. This game, of course, is Pirates of the Caribbean: Master of the Seas. Not only is it extremely popular, but it is also oddly addictive. Something about games like this really draw people in and keeps them coming back for more.

First Things First

First off, it should be noted that Master of the Seas is more closely related to the social games you'd find on Facebook than anything else.

If you happen to own an HP TouchPad and have been waiting patiently for a proper Android port, you'll be overjoyed to see a sneak peek of what CM9 brings to the table. If you recall our announcements for the CM7 Alpha 1 and Alpha 2 builds, you probably remember an overwhelming indication that neither build was all too stable, and running them was not for the faint of heart. Alpha 3 is a bit better, but still has a laundry list of issues.

If you haven't notice, the Google Search app for Android received an update a little bit ago. This update is for users running Android 2.2 or 2.3 and brings some UI and performance enhancements. Once updated, this is what you'll see:

  • New color scheme and simplified UI
  • Faster, more responsive searches
  • Enhanced suggestions and query editing
  • Better localized suggestions and search results for more countries
  • Long press to remove history items

You can also tap that little arrow to the right of a search suggestion to add it to your search term before searching, making the whole process a little faster.

First off, let's talk about the GoGear Connect 3.5 media player. We don't have much information on this device yet, but we do know that it's the latest Wi-Fi-enabled touch screen MP4 player from Philips. It runs on Gingerbread and will likely see a custom interface overlay from Philips. The device will offer access to hundreds of thousands of apps from the Android Market, as well as Skype communication with a front-facing camera, 720p HD video playback on a 3.5" screen, and sound enhancing technology.

If you're a Huawei MediaPad owner, you'd better get ready for some delicious Ice Cream Sandwich, because all existing versions of the tablet will receive the update to Android 4.0 by the end of the first quarter. In addition, all new MediaPads shipped after the update hits will have ICS pre-loaded.

If you're thinking about buying the tablet anytime soon, there will be some color options added to the mix. You'll have the option of the existing silver model, as well as black, brown, or pink.

Yes, that's right - at just half an inch thick, the Droid 4 is the world's thinnest 4G LTE QWERTY Smartphone. Not only is it ridiculously thin (for a slider), but it also packs some pretty raw power under it's hood. Check out what it has to offer:

  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • Android 2.3.5 (Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgradable)
  • 4-Inch "scratch-and-scrape resistant" display
  • 16GB internal memory, Up To 32 GB microSD card supported
  • Full five-row QWERTY 
  • 8MP rear shooter with 1080p HD Video Capture
  • 4G LTE Capable (duh)

Note from Cameron: I would like to take this opportunity to put my foot in my mouth.

Adreno Graphics, a division within Qualcomm, has just released Snapdragon GameCommand, a new game management and discovery app. Originally, GameCommand was supposed to be released on January 10th at CES, but it looks like someone pulled the trigger early.

Update by Artem: This app is much like NVIDIA's Tegra Zone, and while the content it features isn't exclusive to Snapdragons, it looks like it does require a device with one.
