At one point, tethering was a simple process - installing a program from the Android Market would enable the feature and you were good to go. Of course, carriers didn't like this, because instead of paying them an extra $30(ish) a month to use their hotspot service, you were gaining access to the feature for free. So they had many tethering apps pulled from the Market. Not only that, but many carriers put a block directly on devices that disallowed the use of common tethering apps.

The leaker also took the time to grab some screenshots of Quadrant's System Information screen, along with a quite impressive benchmark.

While Canadian carriers Virgin and Bell have had Google's newest flagship phone gracing their shelves since December 8th of last year (that makes it sound so long ago, doesn't it?), competitors Rogers and Telus are finally getting their piece of the Nexus pie on January 13th.

There is no word on pricing at this point, but the competition launched the device for around CA$160 on a three-year agreement, so we expect the above mentioned duo to come out of the gate with similar pricing.

If the Motorola Droid RAZR's 7.1mm frame (at its thinnest point, that is) just isn't thin enough for you, take a look at Fujitsu's latest offering in the Japanese consumer market, the ultra-thin (but not all that attractive) ES IS12F:

The 4-inch device measures a paper-thin 6.7mm, weighs in at a mere 105 grams, and ships with Android 2.3 intact. That's not all this popsicle stick is offering, either; it's also water resistant.

Samsung-Galaxy-Note-ATT

We've been hearing quite a few rumors over the past few weeks that the monstrous Galaxy Note is finally coming to AT&T, with one accessory manufacturer outing a possible release timeframe of "early 2012." Looks like that may indeed be the case, as an official press shot of the Note with AT&T branding has leaked with the date of Tuesday, February 14th prominently displayed on the homescreen.

We completely expect Samsung and AT&T to make the U.S.

There's no doubt that white phones are (generally) sexy. We know this, and it seems that manufacturers are starting to catch on as well. HTC has a few white phones available, and Samsung has already pushed out a couple of white variations of the GSII on T-Mobile and AT&T. Looks like Sprint's GSII, the Epic 4G Touch, is now getting the snow-capped makeover that we heard about a few weeks ago, and will be available on January 8th for $200 with a two-year agreement.

If you listen to music on your Android phone (and who doesn't?) then you need PowerAmp. What is PowerAmp, you ask? It's probably the best music player for Android. It's packed with basically every feature you could possibly want in a music player, all wrapped up in a sexy looking package. And we have fifty licenses to give away to fifty different people.

Sprint

Who else wants a piece of the LTE pie? The Now Network does! Sprint CEO Dan Hesse just announced the markets that will kick off the company's LTE rollout, and, interestingly enough, they chose four of the same cities as AT&T did for its LTE-startup (cue conspiracy theories in 3... 2... 1...) - Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio, TX; along with Atlanta, GA.

Some users are speculating that this move is so Sprint can directly compete with AT&T, while others are suggesting that it's more technical than that and is actually about tower placements, locations, policies, etc.

Update: Things appear to be moving along nicely - Nathan just released the first Beta version of CWM touch. Hit the link below to check it out.

What's the hottest thing to hit custom recoveries since, well... custom recoveries hit? Your fingers! That's right, touch-based recoveries (like TWRP) are starting to make the rounds on various devices, and Android modder Nathan Grebowiec just released an unofficial version of ClockworkMod Recovery with touch controls for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (both GSM and LTE variants).

Looks like Moto is getting ready to push out a couple of budget Android-power handsets to various parts of the world (excluding the U.S.). First up is the little brother to the Defy, appropriately named Defy Mini.

The DM offers a lot of the same "life-proof" features as its big brother, including dust protection, a scratch-resistant screen, and protection against water damage, all packed into its tiny 3.2-inch shell. You'll find a 3MP shooter on the back of the Android 2.3 device, a VGA front camera, and it has 1,650mAh batter for up to 10 hours of talk time.
