Update 12/22: Guess what? Yeah, It's back again. Just in time for Honeycomb.

Update 12/12: If you missed this opportunity the first time around, the gods have shined upon you. It's back.

Update: Hope you grabbed this deal while it was live, because it's gone now! 

For anyone holding out on buying the HTC EVO View 4G on Sprint, the opportune moment just arrived. Over at eBay's Daily Deals site, the View 4G is going for a mere $240 with no contract - a solid $160 off the current Sprint price (it doesn't even look like you can get it without a 2-year contract from Sprint).

Sure, we've already seen a Bearded Dragon playing Ant Crusher, but if that wasn't good enough for you, how about an African Bullfrog trying its tongue at it?

This frog is dead-set on getting the high score, and nothing is going to get in its way. Not even its owner's thumb...

I can't help but laugh every time I see it.

P.S. - Yes, they have teeth.

While we've already seen a leaked version of TouchWiz running on top of ICS, a new leak shows us what HTC is doing with Android 4.0. I know you're all anxious to see what it's all about, so let's just get that out of the way first:

It's worth noting that this is a very early test build, so it's subject to change before it actually sees any official light.

Update 12/21: SE published a blog post this morning vaguely detailing a timeline as to when ICS should start hitting devices. It looks like the Xperia Arc S, Neo V, and Ray will be the first to get the update sometime in late March/early April. After that, the Arc, PLAY, Neo, Mini, Mini Pro, Pro, Active, and Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman will all receive the update as well, though no ETA for that bunch was given.

Update: Looks like things are getting stitched up on VZW's end, as a spokesperson told Android Central that "4G LTE service is returning to normal." Here's the full quote:

Verizon Wireless 4G LTE service is returning to normal this morning after company engineers worked to resolve an issue with the 4G network during the early morning hours today.   Throughout this time, 4G LTE customers were able to make voice calls and send and receive text messages.

You know what you need? Another office suite on your phone or tablet. Or maybe just an office suite. Of course, you probably know that office suites aren't the cheapest apps on the Market, either - most range from $10 to $30, and if you missed OfficeSuite Pro or QuickOffice when they were free in the Amazon Appstore, then you're either stuck waiting for another freebie to come along or forced to shell out the coin to get pick one up.

The team behind Firefox for Android teased the upcoming release with a tablet-friendly design back in late August, and the final version of FF9 just landed in the Android Market. The update not only features a specialized tablet interface, but also boosts performance and startup speed and brings some HTML5 tweaks to the scene, like camera input support and form validation.

The tablet interface offers some nice features over its phone-centric counterpart, like full-screen browsing in portrait, optimized tabs for easy thumb-switching between open pages, and a quick access buttons on the Action Bar.
