Update 12/18/11: It's back again - all other variants are still showing the "sign up for availability alerts" message.

Looks like Amazon may be gearing up to start (re)taking pre-orders for the Transformer Prime, with the 64GB version in champagne being the first one to make its way back to the site. As you may already know, Amazon started taking pre-orders several weeks ago, but abruptly stopped (no reason has really been made clear as to why) and ultimately ended up cancelling many users' orders.

Looks like the incremental updates for Android 4.0 are rolling along nicely at this point - the VZW Galaxy Nexus received the update to Android 4.0.2 yesterday, and now Google has announced version 4.0.3. As you may expect, it crushes many bugs that have been found in current builds, along with throwing some optimizations into the mix.

This update will also bring some new goodies to the table for developers in the form of new APIs:

  • Social stream API in Contacts provider: Applications that use social stream data such as status updates and check-ins can now sync that data with each of the user’s contacts, providing items in a stream along with photos for each.

I'm starting to think that HTC has an overwhelming amount of overstock when it comes to the EVO View 4G - we've already seen this thing go on sale at least three times in the past week. If you happened to miss it on every one of those occasions, wipe those tears away, because it's back again.

This time it's on Daily Steals, and it's going for the cheapest price we've seen yet (only by a few bucks, by hey, cheaper is cheaper, right?).

Adobe promised that it would update Flash to support devices running Android 4.0 before the end of the year, and it has now made good on that promise - just in time for the U.S release of the Galaxy Nexus, no less.

Better grab it now, because this is likely to be the last major update that Flash for Android will ever see. Of course, Adobe will continue to push security updates to the app, but that will probably be the extent of it.

You've probably heard of Schemer by now, Google's new service to help you track all of the crap you want to do during your lifetime. Doesn't really matter what it is - you can scheme everything from reading a book to taking a trip to trying a new food (and everything in between).

If you're still lost as to what I'm babbling about, watch this:

In short, it lets you remember all the stuff you want to do, as well as instantly gracing your face with a handlebar moustache.
