We knew that ASUS would be far from the only manufacturer working on a new tablet featuring the beastly NVIDIA Tegra 3 and Ice Cream Sandwich, and Engadget got their hands on some exclusive details of an upcoming Lenovo tablet that looks to give the Transformer Prime a run for its money. The tablet, said to be out by the end of the year, not only packs the Tegra 3, but 2GB of DDR3 RAM, a full-size USB port, a "fusion-skin body," and a fingerprint scanner/optical joystick on the backside, all powered by Android 4.0.
If you've owned a smartphone for any reasonable amount of time, there's a good chance you've heard of Ballistic cases, some of the most well constructed device protection units we've ever had the pleasure to lay hands on. Ballistic recently released its most popular case, the Shell Gel (more often known as the SG) for the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch -- and we have five of 'em to give away.
Big Daddy Goog just sent out teasers for an announcement event on November 16th in Los Angeles with the tagline These go to Eleven running across the top. For the uninitiated, this is a quote from This is Spinal Tap, a film about a hard rock band whose amps are crankable to eleven (instead of the normal ten).
Given this suggestive headline, it's probably safe to assume that they will be announcing the long awaited Google Music Store, although a the image below the announcement suggests that there may be more to it than meets the eye (see that T-Mobile logo?).
Have you ever been in a situation where you needed a rough-and-rugged case for your Galaxy Tab 10.1? How about a simple, elegant business solution such as a folio case? Today we're going to be taking a look at two such cases: The DropTech case from Gumdrop and the Candy Convertible from Gumdrop's sister, Hard Candy.
These two cases couldn't be more different; the DropTech is a rough, tough, tank-of-a-case designed to protect your Tab from almost anything, while the Candy Convertible is a very simple folio case that just offers the most basic protection.

How many times has this happened to you: While listening to music, something snags the chord of your earbuds, forcefully ripping them from your head. Yeah, I know what you're thinking, and I agree -- there are few things in this world that make me that mad almost instantly. Fortunately, there is an easy way to avoid such a catastrophe from ever happening again: a stereo Bluetooth headset.
Today we'll be taking a look at one such headset: the Jaybird Freedom Wireless Bluetooth (isn't that sort of redundant?) Buds.
While some people prefer intense, console-like games on their mobile, almost everyone loves simple "time-killer" games. A perfect example of one such game is Super Rope, a new climbing game that recently landed in the Market.
First off, Super Rope is not only fun and easy to play, but it's absolutely stunning to look at. The environments are vibrant and full of life, which drastically adds to the appeal of the game.
If you want complete control of how your phone reacts to calls and text messages in nearly any situation, then a tool recently released to the Android Market called Call Master has your number. This is probably the most in-depth, advanced call and text firewall for Android, offering some insanely useful features. It's from the same developer as Root Call Blocker, and actually uses that as its base.
Amazon pushed an update to its Appstore today that brings a few new features, as well as a much sleeker interface. The theme is much easier on the eyes now, as the formerly-white app is now wearing a suit of gray with hints of orange, which matches the color scheme of the upcoming Kindle Fire perfectly.
Aside from the change in appearance, the Appstore also has support for in-app purchases and parental controls now, as well as a page where you can check permissions before you purchase an app.
