If you're a politics junkie and not reading Politico, then you're doing it wrong. Politico is the go-to source for all the political news you can eat, and now it's available for Android tablets.

The app not only features the top-notch journalistic acumen that you've become accustomed to reading on Politico, but also a clean layout, intuitive interface, and easy-to-read text, thanks to user-definable size. It also support four different types of push notifications (which can also be disabled): breaking news, app tips, general alerts, and new app features; so you'll know the latest as soon as it hits the scene.

If you love old-school side-scroller fighting games like Tekken, Mortal Kombat, and Street Fighter, then you've probably played one of the many The Kings of Fighters games throughout the years. The series has now made its way to Android, albeit only for a few select devices for the time being.

The Android version of TKoF brings all of the in-your-face gameplay that fans of the franchise have come to expect, including three-on-three Team Battle mode, Single Battle, and Endless Endurance mode so you can really test your skills.

Seeing as how the HTC Vivid officially started getting its update to ICS this morning, AT&T thought it would be the best time to go ahead and tell everyone else who will (and won't) be getting the update as well. While this list holds few surprises when it comes to devices that made the cut, there are a few devices seemingly absent:

  • LG Nitro
  • Motorola ATRIX 2
  • Motorola ATRIX 4G
  • Pantech Burst
  • Pantech Element
  • Samsung Captivate Glide
  • Samsung Galaxy Note
  • Samsung Galaxy S II
  • Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9

...and there you have it, the story according to AT&T.

Bookmark sync is one of the best features of the Android stock browser (and Chrome for ICS devices), but there's one major flaw with it: what if you don't use the stock browser (or you don't have ICW)? Well, if Dolphin's your default browser, we have good news - there's now an extension in the Chrome Web Store that allows Dolphin to sync all of your desktop bookmarks to your mobile, and vice-versa.

The Google Voice app received an update today that is sure to make frequent GV users quite happy: voicemail integration in the dialer for Android 4.0 devices. Gone are the days of hopping on the computer or launching the GVoice app to listen to your voicemail, as it's now integrated directly into the ICS dialer, much like we saw at the Android 4.0 announcement back in October.

The update also brings quick access to all folders directly from the inbox.

So, there's this phone on AT&T called the LG Thrill 4G.  While it's virtually identical to the Optimus 3D in nearly every way, it has been running Android 2.2 since release, whereas its twin brother has been on Android 2.3 for four months now. Finally, though, Thrill 4G owners are getting treated to a taste of Gingerbread, albeit with one last hurdle to jump through.

Instead of rolling the update OTA (over-the-air), this one requires the LG Mobile Support tool.

Good news for anyone who bought one of the recent Sony Android tablets - namely the Tablet P and Tablet S - the update to Android 4.0 should be coming your way next month. The update will not only bring all of the benefits that ICS has to offer, but also a feature that will allow Tablet users to access and watch programs they've recorded on their compatible Sony Blu-Ray recorder.

Just as quickly as Acer entered into the dual-core tablet market with the most affordable fully-featured tablet at the time, it now enters the quad-core market in the same fashion. The Tegra 3-sporting Iconia Tab A510 will be the first real competition to the beastly Transformer Prime in the Android tablet realm, and rightfully so -- it's packing comparable specs while still managing to hit a lower price-point.

  • 10.1-inch 1,280x800 display
  • Quad-Core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB built-in storage with microSD Card slot
  • 5MP Rear shooter, 1MP front-facing camera
  • 9,800mAh battery for 12 hours of continuous video playback
  • Android 4.0 with Acer Ring

The A510 not only packs some of the latest hardware to hit the scene, along with the newest version of Android, but it also offers up Acer's Ring interface - a customizable launcher that allows for quick access to user-defined shortcuts and bookmarks, as well as a handy screenshot tool.
