There must be something weird going on with manufacturers lately - first Huawei released an alpha build of ICS for the Honor, and now Sony Ericsson (soon to be just Sony) has released an ICS ROM for certain unlocked Xperia devices, including the Arc S, Neo V, and Ray.

Since it's an alpha ROM, it's not made for day-to-day use, as it is limited to just a few functions at the moment.

There's no doubt that a good number of you are foaming at the mouth waiting to get your hands on the Galaxy Nexus, which is finally available today. While we've already seen a few sites drop the price a bit, none have been able to match the price that LetsTalk is offering the GN for: $155 for new customers, $175 for upgrades. That's half-off the price that VZW is asking for new customers!

Here it is boys and gals, the moment we've all been waiting for - the official launch date for the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon. The Android dreams of so many of us across the country will finally be fulfilled tomorrow, December 15th for three-hundred bones and a two-year agreement.

Update: The phone will go on sale on vzw.com at 1 a.m. EST December 15th.

Seems like we've been waiting for an eternity - who's going to be waiting in line?

Looking to spruce your lockscreen up a bit? The MIUI Team is bringing a new flavor to the lockscreen arena, simply called MiLocker.

MiLocker looks to compete with offerings such as WidgetLocker and GO Locker as your lockscreen replacement, and after spending just a few minutes with it, I can say that it's quite nice - enough so that it will most likely become my primary lockscreen replacement (at least for a while).

Google Translate just got a little update that brings big functionality: the ability to recognize written words in seven different languages. The previous version allowed for text and spoken input only, so this update adds just another method to the mix.

You may be asking yourself why is this a big deal? This is a useful feature partly due to the fact that it can translate Chinese and Japanese, which both use characters that are uncommon to English keyboards.

Adding to its ever-expanding LTE network, Verizon Wireless is all set to hit the blazing fast button in 11 new markets tomorrow, December 15th - a date also rumored to be the U.S. release of the Galaxy Nexus. Perhaps VZW is going for the go big or go home way of thinking to coincide with the release of the most anticipated phone of the year.

The new cities include:

  • Dover, DE
  • Lafayette, IN
  • Fitchburg/Leominster, MA
  • Duluth, The Rochester Area, and St.

If you're not familiar with Microsoft Lync, don't feel bad - I had no idea what it was before today, either. Makes sense, because I don't work in an environment where Lync is used (or would be useful), but for those who do, it's actually pretty cool. In a nutshell, it's an IM/contact management/VoIP client used for Exchange - think MSN Messenger with a GTalk twist built for the corporate environment .

Verizon teased us with the white Droid RAZR last week when it announced the Droid Xyboard, and now the official release date has been outed for tomorrow, December 15th for $299 with a two-year agreement. The white variant sports the same powerful specs and its all-black predecessor:

  • 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter, front facing camera
  • 16GB built-in storage, 16GB microSD card
  • Android 2.3.5
  • 7.1mm thin, 127 grams
  • 1800mAh battery
  • Made with Kevlar fiber
  • Gorilla Glass
  • Motorola Splash Guard
  • Webtop cabpable
  • 4G LTE
  • Bluetooth 4.0

It's also worth mentioning that if you pick one of these up, you can get $100 off the [overpriced] Droid Xyboard, so if you're in the market for both, now is probably the best time to buy.

Like its predecessors, this one will set you back $10 and will be limited to two per person/address. These things always sell out pretty fast, so if you're looking to score one, you better make haste.

We've all certainly been waiting quite a while for PvZ and Peggle to shed their Amazon Appstore exclusivity and land in the Android Market. That day has finally arrived, but it's not all good in the hood - in typical EA fashion, many users are getting the old "your device is not supported" crap when trying to install either game.

In case you don't recall, the original creator of both games, PopCap, was purchased by EA for a cool $1.3 Billion back in July.
