Maybe you've heard of a new AT&T LTE handset from HTC called the Vivid. Maybe you haven't. Either way, HTC has gotten itself in a bit of hot water using such a risqué name on the blazing fast beast. By whom, you ask? Why, adult entertainment company Vivid Entertainment, of course.

Vivid is threatening HTC with a possible trademark infringement suit if the name of the device isn't changed.

So, looky at what we have here: yet another render for a supposedly upcoming HTC device. This one is a far cry from the current crop of HTC phones on the market -- heck, it's even a whole different beast from the Edge and Ville. This one looks mean.

Not only does this monster look like it will beat up all the other phones and take their lunch money, but it's rumored to have the power to back it up.

We know how much you guys (and gals) love Otterbox, and we hope you know how much we love all of you; all of that love can only mean one thing: it's time for another case giveaway. This go around is exclusive to a couple of newcomers to the Otterbox family: the Defender Series for the Motorola Atrix 2 and the Commuter Series for the Atrix 2 and HTC Wildfire S.

If you're the type who likes to keep their head deeply nuzzled in the stock market, then you probably already have a mobile phone full of apps to help you stay connected. If there's one thing I know about Android users, though, it's that we can never have too many apps - especially when they rub the belly of our favorite hobbies, obsessions, or other dependencies just right. So, for all you business, accounting, or other finance-minded folks, CNN Money just landed in the Android Market for phones and Google TV.

While this app may not be useful to everyone out there, the concept is still pretty cool and could be quite useful for those who handle event management, ticket tracking, workshops, etc.

So, what is Eventbrite? It's a service that allows you to create and manage events, sell tickets, and keep track of attendees. The Eventbrite Easy Entry Android app is a key part of the service, as it allows you to scan the QR codes from tickets, essentially keeping up with who is there.

Of the many Honeycomb tablets currently on the market, we don't often talk about the Lenovo IdeaPad K1. That doesn't mean it's a bad product -- Lenovo is one of the best names in the business, and If you want to pick up the Honeycomb-powered IdeaPad K1, this is the time to do it. For a limited time, if you grab the K1 and use the coupon code K1KEYFREE at checkout, you'll receive the keyboard dock for absolutely free.

While Netflix has had support (whether legit or not) for Android tablets for quite a while, there is one thing that can definitely be said about it: the interface was crap. Sure, it worked out great on the phone, but a lot of valuable screen real estate and key components of Android 3.1+ were going to waste on tablets. I guess the Netflix team realized this, because an update has been pushed to the tablet interface that fixes most of the aforementioned issues.

ToshibaThrive_04

Thrive owners, grab your slate and start checking for updates -- Android 3.2 is now available. The bump in Android version is the nuts-and-bolts of this update, along with improved screen rotation speed.

The changelog also notes that the YouTube and Android Market widgets may disappear after installing the update due to "a change in the application naming convention," but they can simply be added back.

So, hit the update app, cross your fingers, and hope it all works out better for the Thrive than it did the Galaxy Tab 10.1

Update: We're getting reports that this should be rolling out in full-force now. Anyone get theirs today?

Update 2: We're hearing that a lot of people are still without the update, so we pinged HTC to make sure everything is rolling as planned. Everything is right on schedule, so just sit tight -- it should be hitting your device anytime now.

Update 3: After months of silence, it seems the beast has awoken, and the update is rolling out yet again, with the same version number 4.06.605.3.
