In 2011, Archos put out two lines of tablets: the low end (and lesser relevant) Arnova line, and the higher-end G9 series - its first to receive Google certification (which is required in order to offer the Play Store). This year, we can expect a bit more rearranging from the company, as it will offer three lines of tablet: the low-end Arnova, mid-range Elements, and high-end G10xs series.

The company today unveiled some details about the G10xs series, revealing that it will be intro-ing three new high-end devices this year, including 7-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch models.

I have a confession to make: I'm a system stat whore. Not just on my PCs, either - I want to know what's up on all my devices, all the time. I've been using OS Monitor on my tablets for quite a while now, and while the information it provides is useful, it doesn't encompass all of the info that I wanted to see at a glance. Furthermore, it doesn't offer support for quad-core devices like the Transformer Prime.

If you haven't already been touched by Verizon's stupid-fast 4G LTE network, then tomorrow may be the day. Big Red will flip the switch on seven new markets, including:

  • Dothan and Enterprise, AL
  • Naples, FL
  • Greenville, NC
  • Altus and Durant, OK
  • Longview/Marshall, TX

Also on its quest for world domination (at least on the cellular level), VZW will expand its LTE market in 17 existing markets:

  • Washington D.C.
  • Elkhart, IN
  • Baltimore, MD
  • Columbus, MS
  • Northern NJ
  • Wilmington, NC
  • Duncan, OK
  • Allentown/Bethlehem, Harrisburg, Philadelphia, and Scranton/Wilkes Barre, PA
  • Hilton Head, SC
  • Cleveland, TN
  • Dallas/Ft.

When it comes to the checkout lane, we're used to seeing some pretty outdated systems running behind the counter. Most PoS (point-of-sale, guys) systems are still sporting the classic black screen with white boxy text and are both outdated and impractical. Casio thinks that it's time to bring PoS systems out of the stone age, and what better way to do that than with Android?

The new Casio VX-100 is an Android-powered EPoS system that brings with it a whole new way to run the front lines of a retail environment.

When organizing an event, it's proper to send out some form of notification (otherwise, no one will know that you're having an event and, thus, not show up). Some people still use that old-school mail thing that involves paper, stamps, and some other stuff - but c'mon, let's be honest here - this is the 21st century and we're geeks. It's a whole lot easier to grab your mobile and shoot out a few texts from the comfort of your couch, albeit highly informal.

If you've been longing for some sort of old-school Gamecube action on your Android device and happen to love monkeys trapped in transparent balls, then today is your lucky day - Sega released Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition in all of its pink fluffy goodness to the Android Market Play Store.

For the uninitiated, Super Monkey Ball is a classic game in which you control one of four playable monkeys encased in a translucent ball  though a series of twists and turns to reach the goal.

I've been on some sort of Galaxy Nexus case-review-a-thon for the past several weeks, but there are so many options out there, it's hard to pick just one. And of course, if you're on a budget (and who isn't?) you probably don't want to buy ump-teen different cases to snag the perfect one. That's what we're here for, after all - to help you make the best purchase decision possible.

If you read any of my past case reviews, then you probably know that I was a big fan of the Seidio cases, and today we're going to take a look at some comparable cases from a company called Incipio: the Feather, NGP, and Silicrylic.

Who likes to show off their Android pride? You guys do! And what better way to do that than with an Androidified case from Cruzer Lite for the Galaxy Nexus or Droid RAZR MAXX? None that I can think of. Actually, the only thing that would make this case cooler is if it were free - which we're ready to make happen (for 12 people at least).

This contest is now over.

If you've thought about using GrooVe IP to give this whole VoIP (voice-over-IP) thing a try but were reluctant to drop a five-spot for an app that may or may not ever use again, we have good news. GrooVe IP Lite just landed in the Play Store, and it offers nearly all of the same features as its $5 brother for, well, nothing.

1 2 3

There are only a few minor things that are not available in the Lite version of the app:

  • Calls over a mobile data connection not just Wi-Fi
  • Native dialer integration
  • Proximity sensor support
  • Change sign in status or sign in invisible

If none of those sound like features you'd want out of a VoIP app, then GrooVe IP Lite should fit the bill perfectly.

Back in November, Google announced that it would be moving the annual Input/Output (I/O) developers' conference from April 24-25 to June 27-29. We've all been waiting patiently for registration to open for the now three-day even since then, and Vic Gundotra announced earlier today on G+ that users will be able to register beginning on March 27th at 7AM PT.

2012-03-13 12h19_28

While it's good to finally know when registration will open, there is a bit of bad news.
