Three days ago, Sprint finally announced pre-order and availability details for its version of the Galaxy Nexus. Turns out that the demand was more than expected, as the Now Network is completely sold out of its pre-order inventory.

Considering we don't often hear about carriers selling out of pre-order devices, this might be a good indication that the Sprint GNex could be even more difficult than anticipated to find on retail shelves beginning on April 22.

Big Red isn't skimping on the updates over the past couple of days (though none of them are ICS) - yesterday we saw changelogs for upcoming Droid RAZR/MAXX and Droid 4 OTAs, and today, details for an upcoming OTA to the LG Spectrum hit Verizon's site.

While this update appears to be nothing more than a incremental Gingerbread update (which brings the device up to Android version 2.3.6) it does bring quite a few fixes and enhancements to the device:

As always, there's no word as to when the update will start rolling out, but most OTAs start within a few days of the documents hitting Verizon's support site.

You can always count on the Android ROM development community to extend a device's relevance in the tech world. Take the OG Galaxy Tab for example - this little guy was the first Android tablet to hit the scene (running a phone-specific version of the OS, no less). It has been around for about a year and a half now, and there's no hope that it will ever officially be updated to anything past Gingerbread.

We talk about power-on-the-go a lot around here. We've reviewed several portable chargers, and even a messenger bag with a charger built-in. If you need some extra juice in your bag but just can't justify spending $60+ on a portable charger, then you may want to take advantage of today's mobile Daily Steal: the Trent iFuel 5000mAh portable charger for $25.

The iFuel should be compatible with any Android device that can charge over USB (including tablets, according to the DS listing) and packs enough juice to charge a 2000mAh battery more than two times.

Looks like Samsung and Motorola have been hanging out at the local trademark office again, as both companies have registered names of some upcoming devices.

Samsung registered three new names (because we know how much they love to release at least one new Galaxy device every month week): the Galaxy Metrix, Velvet, and Legend (cough HTC cough). Aside from that, we only know that all three names were registered as "goods and services: mobile telephones, smartphones." Surprise, surprise.

Looks like the RAZR Twins aren't the only ones set to get an OTA from Big Red - a changelog just hit the support docs page for the Droid 4 that outlines a small bug fix/enhancement update for the fourth-generation slider:

If you just can't wait to get some update action on your device, Droid-Life already has the 18MB update available for download. Since it's an official build, it will break root, but rumor has it that Voodoo Rootkeeper is letting users keep root access once the update is finished.

All manufacturers want to make sure that apps work properly on their devices. Of course, the best way to make sure an app works on any given phone is to actually test the app on the device in question. For developers, though, that could cost a substantial amount of money - just think about how many Android devices are out there at the moment.

As an answer to this quandary, though, Sony has come up with a unique plan to allow developers to borrow Xperia devices.

I'm convinced that April 22, 2012 will forever be recognized as one of the most Android-packed day of all time. Why, you ask? Because that's the day that the day that Sprint's Galaxy Nexus, LG Viper, and LG Optimus Elite will be available, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7 and ASUS Transformer Pad 300. Looks like AT&T didn't want to be left out, so it announced this morning that its version of the HTC One X would be available for pre-order on that very day for $199, with a release date set for May 6th (which lines up with previous rumors - good job, Best Buy!).

So, here's a bit of good news for Time Warner customers: the company just updated its Android app with support for streaming TV on Android 4.0 devices. Fantastic right? Yeah... no. There's a catch: it won't work for rooted users. Boo, Time Warner!

Of course, TW isn't the first company to shun rooted users when it comes to streaming media: Google itself did the same thing with Play Movies back when it first launched the service (long before it was called "Play Movies").
