The Scandinavian online retailer CDON.com has been spotted harbouring a certain "telefon med Dualcore processor" by one of Swedroid's observant readers. LG's dual-core forerunner may not be the only Tegra II kid in town, but it sure looks like it's going to be the first to make its way into some frigid, Nordic hands.
The page may only be a pre-order/placeholder, but it gives us some indication of what prices might be like with the 2X. Unsurprisingly, they look to be pretty steep. Without a contract, the Op2X will run you and your Swedish friends for 4999 kronor, or roughly €550/$730.

Looks like it's not
We're not sure if it's the Flash update that does it - that was just a coincidence for Brian and utcarbs (update
: And Bateluer in the comments
). We're also not sure which phones this is affecting... I've tried updating Flash on my EVO, as well as uninstalling and reinstalling, to no avail. --Aaron
Update #2: As I expected, this is definitely not related to Flash. I updated Flash yesterday and didn't get the new tab. Today, I updated some random programs and the tab showed up. I'm pretty sure the Market UI is server-side, so checking the Market app's version does not help (my /system/app/Vending.apk is 1.82).
