Ready to add another rumor to the pile surrounding the US Galaxy Nexus release date? No? I don't blame you. Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do to stop this whirlwind of release date madness.

We've been hearing December 9th as the final release date for the Galaxy Nexus on Big Red for several days now; heck, an orgy of proof showed up yesterday that all but confirmed it - or so we thought.

Samsung-Galaxy-Note

We've been wondering whether or not the gargantuan Samsung Galaxy Note would ever make its way stateside, and I believe we just got our answer. This tablet-phone hybrid device (or as I like to call it, a phablet) just passed through the FCC, and it's sporting AT&T 2G/3G bands.

If you need a refresher on what makes the Note so unique (aside from its massive 5.3-inch display), watch this:

And a quick look at the specs of the international version:

  • 5.3-inch 1280x800 Super AMOLED HD display
  • 1.4GHz dual-core Exynos processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • 8MP rear shooter, 2MP front camera
  • Android 2.3.5 with TouchWiz

Keep in mind that these specs could change for the US release, but that's probably not likely.

We learned a few weeks ago that a software update would soon be rolling out to the Logitech Revue, finally bringing Honeycomb to the unit. That time has finally come; as posted on the official Logitech blog, the Android 3.1 update is now making its way to Revue units across the country.

Android 3.1 brings a lot of welcome features and enhancements to the Google TV box, including access to the Android Market, improved search and browsing capabilities, a simplified user interface, and improvements to the Logitech Media Player.

Update #1: Well, that was much faster than anyone expected - RIM has already released the patch for this exploit. The good news is that the patch isn't yet available in the 2.0 Beta, but you can bet that it will be rolled into the update before it hits the masses in its final form. If you happened to accept the update on the current version and still want to give this exploit a try, then you can always downgrade the OS.

Poor AT&T. This is the second year in a row in which Ma Bell has been tossed under the knife with other carriers and came out dead last in terms of customer satisfaction. The survey, taken by Consumer Reports,  examines voice, data, text messaging services, and customer care; the biggest hit came from... can you guess?... voice. Phone-based customer care also helped the company to achieve its bottom-tier ranking.

Surprisingly, the top position is held by regional-based carrier Consumer Cellular, a provider that, ironically enough, runs off of AT&T's network and focuses on senior citizens.

Fans of retro-gaming, rejoice - Dragon's Lair has made its way to Android. Originally available as an arcade game back in 1983, this quirky game takes you on the journey of a brave knight on a mission to save a beautiful princess - a pretty typical storyline indeed. That's probably the only thing typical about this game - given its age, that is.

Dragon's Lair changed the way games were played when it hit the scene; controls were different, graphics were better, gameplay was more fluid - you name it, Dragon's Lair made it happen.

Good news for everyone waiting for the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon: Galaxy Nexus units have started showing up at Verizon stores. This can mean only one thing - release is imminent. We've been waiting long enough for any details about the GN's US release, so without further ado, the goods:

As you can see, the packaging is about as clean as it gets - a solid white box, suggesting these are just training units.

The European GSM variant of HTC's foray into the tablet world, the Flyer, is currently getting its long-awaited bump up to Honeycomb 3.2.1. The update brings many new features to the tablet, including the latest version of Sense for Tablets with "enhanced internet browsing, mail, calendar, and more all optimized for the 7-inch screen."

The Wi-Fi-only version hasn't been left behind completely, either - HTC states that it will receive its Honeycomb update soon, but no ETA has been given.

We've seen plenty of el-cheapo Android tablets hit the market in the last several months - most of which are running a phone version of Android, with no access to the Market or other Google products. Looks like MIPS Technologies is in the game to change the way we look at budget tablets, as it just announced a $99 ICS tablet. Yeah - $99. With ICS. Soak it up.

2011-12-05 10h14_14

The 7-inch tablet is equipped with a 1GHz single-core MIPS-based XBurst CPU, and has the features we've all come to expect from a modern tablet, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, dual cameras, HDMI out, and microSD card slot.

Looks like Verizon is going with the go big or go home motto pretty heavily these days - it has been attacking plans to expand its LTE network across the country with great earnest, and now it has entered into an agreement with multiple cable companies to purchase 122 Advanced Wireless Service Spectrum licenses for a cool 3.6 Billion smack-a-roos.

The deal, which will have to be cleared by the FCC, will allow VZW to grow its LTE network even further, giving it an even bigger advantage over AT&T.
