If you're tired of Angry Birds (who isn't?) but still enjoy the flick-and-break game mechanics, the allow me to turn your attention to a new game called Princess Punt. The name itself is very fitting for the game -- it's weird, quirky, and eye catching. It's more than just a kill-things-and-get-stars philosophy, too -- it also brings RPG action to the genre. The developer is calling it an action puzzle RPG, which I think is quite fitting.

IdeaPad-A11-550x438
Last Updated: November 8th, 2011

With the Ideapad A1, Lenovo made it easy for those on a tight budget to get a tablet. Sure, it's no Galaxy Tab 10.1 or Transformer, but for kicking back on the couch and surfing the web, watching videos, or playing a game to kill some time, it's just what the doctor ordered. There are two versions available in the US -- 16GB and 32GB -- and the former just underwent a pricedrop over at Amazon.

A few months ago, an app called LBE Privacy Guard landed in the Android Market, which allows for fine-tuned control off app permissions, data usage, and more. It looks like the developer of said app has been hard at work since then, as a new, completely redesigned version is now available. While the name may still be same, the updated version is an entirely different listing altogether, and the previous listing has become home to a Chinese-specific version of the app.

motorola-droid-razr

With each new Droid device comes an accompanying game for a chance to win one, and the DroidDoes website was updated this morning to accommodate just that for the upcoming Droid RAZR. This one is a bit more simple in nature than those of the past -- it's a claw machine emulator. Grab the phone for the a chance to win. Sounds easy, right? Yeah, until you see all the lasers surrounding the device, making it nearly impossible to actually pick it up without frying the robotic arm.

Of course, there is a way to deactivate some of the lasers, and it's really little more than a popularity contest.

SwiftKey X is arguably one of the best keyboard alternatives for Android, and it's only getting better. The newest alphas (VIP login required) for both phones and tablets include a much-needed feature for any keyboard: multitouch. This will allow for even faster typing, fixing one of SwiftKey's biggest issues - missed and repeated letters.

Over the next few days, we would greatly appreciate your participation in Alpha testing our latest update to multi-touch functionality.

htc-rezound-press

We've been hearing information about the HTC Rezound (codenamed Vigor) for quite a while now, and HTC just officially took the wraps off of this beasty. Like most other new HTC devices, it's packed with Beats by Dre, and, similar to the Sensation XE, has those wicked red capacitive buttons. It's quite impressive in terms of hardware spec:

  • 4.3-Inch 720p (1282*720) display
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB built-in storage, 16GB microSD card
  • 8P camera, 2MP front cam
  • Beats by Dre
  • 4G LTE with simultaneous voice/data capabilities (like the Thunderbolt)
  • Android 2.3.5 with Sense 3.5

Bummed it doesn't have ICS?

Like previous giveaways, this is for the ticket only. You are responsible for your own transportation, lodging, and any other associated expenses.

The rumor mill is going nuts with release dates for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, and now we can add one more to the list. We already know that the European version of the device will be available on November 17th, and, according to an uncompleted internal Verizon document nabbed by Android Central, it looks like Verizon may be joining the global revolution on the same day.

There is absolutely nothing that screams confirmed!

If Google's Groupon competitor Offers is available in your area, then you you'll be happy to know that the companion app to the service has just been released to the Android Market. The app allows you to find and buy the best deals in your area on-the-go, as well as notify you about deals that match your interests and allow you to purchase and redeem them instantly.

XOOM2_Dyn_R_horiz_Home_EMARA


We've heard the rumors and seen the pictures, but Motorola just made the XOOM 2 official. Just like suspected, there are two different versions: a 10.1-inch model, geared towards enterprise and corporate users; and an 8.2-inch Media Edition, designed for movies and music playback. In terms of hardware spec, both tablets are little more than an incremental upgrade from the original XOOM:

  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor (probably OMAP)
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB built-in storage
  • 5MP rear camera, VGA front
  • Android 3.2
