I have absolutely no problem admitting that I'm not a football fan. What I do have a problem with, however, is when an amazing app like DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket for Tablets hit the Market and I have no use for it. For the football fans among us, though, this is pure gold.

NFL Sunday Ticket for Tablets lets you monitor every Sunday game all in one place, as well as stream whichever one you like in a smaller window, making dreams come true for the football-multitasking-maniac (like my Dad, for example).

Samsung-Galaxy-S2

It's as if Samsung is looking straight into the heart of America with its newest ad for the Galaxy S II, entitled "The Way We're Wired." The ad hits the soft spot in all of us with its chill-inducing analogies of how we all want to be the best, highlighting philanthropists like Martin Luther King, Jr. and superheros like Batman. Have a look:

Kudos, Sammy. I love it.

Motorola Photon GHLks

US Cellular just sent out a presser for the upcoming Motorola Electrify, which is basically a rebranded Photon 4G minus WiMax. There's little doubt that this will be US Cellular's flagship device, as it's far-and-above their current highest-spec'd device:

  • 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB internal storage
  • 8MP rear camera, VGA front camera
  • Webtop capable
  • Kickstand
  • Android 2.3

grid10-features2

The upcoming Fusion Garage Grid 10 tablet is a different sort of beast, looking to separate itself from the current crop of Honeycomb tablets by bringing high-end specs with a low-end pricetag. How high-end, you ask? Let's have a look.

  • 10.1-inch 1366x768 display
  • 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor
  • 512MB RAM (a little on the low side, I agree)
  • 16GB storage
  • microSD slot
  • Wi-Fi and 3G variants
  • Custom "Grid OS" based on Android

Aside from the resolution (which is higher than any other Honeycomb tablet currently out), the Grid 10 features specs that are equivalent to most other Android tablets on the market.

Everyone's favorite stock AOSP ROM, CyanogenMod, has officially made its way to the HTC Evo 3D and Sensation. This is the first build to show up for either device, but according to the respective XDA threads, is stable enough for everyday use.

It's also worth noting that you won't be able to flash this if you used HTC's unlock tool, as it doesn't provide S-OFF, so flashing a custom kernel (which is required with CM) is out of the question.

TN-53961_AcerIconia_Tab_A500_approved_screen

We were all left with a bad taste in our mouths after hearing AT&T's pricing for the recently announced HTC Jetstream, but if you're looking for a  solid Honeycomb tablet with always-connected mobile access then check out Ma Bell's latest offering: the Acer Iconia Tab A501.

Under the hood, it's the exact same device as the A500, with the inclusion of an HSPA+ radio. The nuts and bolts of it are:

  • 10.1-inch 1280x800 display
  • 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 5MP and 2MP cameras
  • SD card, microUSB, and microHDMI ports
  • Android 3.2

The real sweet spot for this tablet, though, is the pricing.

While there have been plenty of Netflix builds available for download to be sideloaded onto "unsupported" devices, many users have been waiting for an official update to be pushed out by Netflix.

That day has come, as the app received an today today that brings support to all Android 2.2 and 2.3 devices. Oddly enough, though, the app also updated on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 which I had previously sideloaded it onto.

Early last month, a German court halted the sale and distribution of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 due to a suit filled against Samsung by Apple. Naturally, Sammy appealed the injunction, but the court has upheld the ban on Tab 10.1 sales, citing that "Apple’s minimalistic design isn’t the only technical solution to make a tablet computer, other designs are possible."

This comes as yet another blow against Samsung, as it has already had to halt sales of the Tab 10.1 in a few other countries, as well as pull its Galaxy Tab 7.7 showcase from the IFA conference last week.

Sprint

The crown jewel of Sprint's service is undeniably its "truly" unlimited data, so when rumors of the Sprint iPhone started surfacing, customers of the Now Network immediately started questioning what would happen to data plans as a result.

The other two carriers currently offering the iPhone, Verizon and AT&T, both switched to tiered data plans shortly after they started carrying the device, so it was an understandable fear coming from Sprintsters across the nation that they, too, may end up on the same [horrible] system.

We've covered a few different football-related apps lately, and for the football fanatics among you, the NFL released an official app specifically designed for Honeycomb tablets into the Market just a little while ago.

The app allows you to watch on-demand NFL network news and other info, check out the latest on your favorite teams, keep up with game action, stats, and drive charts; and check out team rosters, stats, and player info, all while looking mighty good doing it.
