Droid-4-Front

What do you get when you take a Droid Bionic, slap a keyboard on it, and give it the bloat (physically - not bloatware) treatment? The Droid 4! This phone was originally said to be like the "Droid RAZR with a keyboard," but we see nothing RAZR about this behemoth. We'll start off gently - but brace yourself, it gets pretty ugly.

Update: Just realized that this is a dummy unit (not sure how I overlooked that the first time around), so that means it may not the exact size of the actual Droid 4.

Earlier this week, Verizon announced that it would start charging customers a $2 fee for paying their bill with a debit card either online or over the phone. Naturally, this caused a huge uproar among customers -- sure, it's only a couple bucks, but it's the principal of the thing. Charging customer to pay their bill?  The very idea doesn't make sense. It's just whack.

So, after enormous customer backlash, guess what Verizon did?

EVO Design 4G owners, rejoice - HTC has just released the kernel source code for your device. This means that devs can grab the code, take it to the lab and start hacking away to make this device as lean and mean as possible. Overclocking, among other mods, is just one of the things that generally results in source code modification, so keep your eyes peeled for these improved kernels to start pouring out on popular development forums.

Having the ability to access your desktop or laptop computer from your mobile device is one of the easiest ways to ensure you always have the files that you need, and Splashtop's remote desktop software is on sale today in the Amazon Appstore for $0.99 to help you do just that.

Update: Looks like it's free at GetJar. Save yourself a buck and pick it up from there. Thanks, Brandon!

Who's ready for some old-school gaming action? If not, you better get ready - Sonic the Hedgehog and his homie Tails are making their way to Tegra-powered devices in 2012 for a sequel to the 2010 hit Sonic the Hedgehog 4, Episode 1 (which, unfortunately, is not available on Android).

Episode 2 will bring some enhanced features over its predecessor, including a completely redesigned physics engine, new character animations, and, most importantly (to us, that is), the arrival on the Android platform.

It seems like this is becoming a weekly habit, doesn't it? Big Red 4G LTE devices across the nation are once again without data services (mine included).

It appears that this just happened, so there's no word from VZW as to when we can expect data services to be restored. We'll keep you posted on any new information as it comes along; until then, I hope you're around a Wi-Fi network.

Ah, Words With Friends. What was once one of the most anticipated games on Android quickly becme one of the most hated due to its bug-laden nature and lack of good support. The app has now received another update that NOT only brings "loads of bug fixes" - call me skeptical, but I'll believe that when I see it - but a new Words with Friends store. Yeah, a store.

So, what kind of things can you buy from this store?

As 2011 comes to a close, the internet is abuzz with best of, top, and most popular posts covering the past year. Mobile analytics firm Mobilewalla has gotten in on the action and released a list of the highest rated apps of 2011, as chosen using their own ranking system. The list itself covers all four major mobile platforms (Android, iOS, Blackberry, and Windows Phone 7), but, naturally, we're just going to discuss the Android entries.

Samsung-Galaxy-Note

The Galaxy Note from Samsung, a device that has an almost cult-like following at this point. Those who love it, really love it. Those who hate it, well... just hate it. Some say it's too big, while others lust for its 5.3-inch Super AMOLED HD display. Unfortunately, U.S. users have been left wanting since the Note's release a few months ago. Sure, we've seen tell-tale signs that it is indeed going to land stateside eventually, but Samsung has now removed all doubt.
