Earlier today it was announced that the Droid 3 had officially been rooted. As previously stated, the process doesn't look all that difficult as long as you have ADB set up and ready to go. Now this process is even easier, though, as a 1-click solution has become available! That's not the best part, either -- P3Droid seems to think that this method should work on all Moto phones running Gingerbread.

Samsung-Galaxy-S2

Samsung has an event coming up on Monday where the US Galaxy S II will finally be announced. We've all been waiting for this beast of a phone to hit US shores for some time, but word just broke that one big name will be left out of the announcement: Verizon. That's right, folks, Big Red will not be getting the SGSII.

It's rumored that VZW will instead be getting the Samsung Stratosphere, a QWERTY-slider along the same lines as the Epic 4G, as well as the Nexus Prime.

The Droid 3 is the most powerful Droid to date -- its 1Ghz dual-core OMAP processor and Android 2.3.4 make it a speedy and capable device. As with most devices, D3 owners wanted root access in order to take full advantage of all that it had to offer. That day has finally arrived, as the D3 has been rooted by developer drjbliss from the XDA forums.

The rooting process seems to be rather easy, granted you have ADB set up and know how to use it.

Buried deep within Samsung's Unpacked app is evidence of a few upcoming devices set to be announced at the IFA conference in Berlin, which begins on September 1st. Among the outed devices are two new additions to the Galaxy line, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the Galaxy Note.

As you might expect, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 will most likely be a 7.7 inch tablet, judging by the naming guidelines set in place by the Tab 10.1 and Tab 8.9.

The HP TouchPad has become quite a hot topic in the Android community as of late, thanks to its ultra-low price tag and superb hardware specs. Several dev teams have already stepped forward to announce plans to port Android to the device, while at least two devices have already been sold with developer builds of Android intact right out of the box.

One of the lucky owners of said Android-ified TouchPads, jiwanish, has been so kind as to provide a full system dump to RootzWiki, allowing devs to make some real progress on the Android TouchPad front.

TegraZone.com

NVIDIA's Tegra Zone app is undeniably the best way to find games specifically designed to take advantage of the Tegra 2 processor, and now an official companion website has been released. Much like the web portal to the Android Market, the Tegra Zone website makes finding what you're looking for quick and easy. I had a chance to cruise around the site before it was publicly available, and I must say, it's quite nice.

In  the past, teasers, trailers, and other forms of video goodness for the Droid lineup have left me in a state of awe. I can still remember the amount of excitement that I felt the first time I saw the teaser for the Droid X -- it was chill inducing. The second that eye lit up with the infamous red glow and the "droid" audio resonated through my ear canals; oh man, it was good.
