A little less than a week ago, Artem shared his thoughts on the keyboard dock for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Since this was before the official TouchWiz UX (our review) came out, I figured it deserved another go, as the update fixed several issues.

I'm only going to take on the things that were software related issues this go around, as other aspects (like design) have already been covered.

While the US variant of the Motorola XOOM recently received Android 3.2, the European version has been patiently waiting to leave version 3.0.1. That wait is finally coming to its end, as the official Android 3.1 OTA has started rolling out in Europe, according to Motorola EU's Facebook page. Of course, this is a staged rollout, so it may be days - or even weeks - before some users actually see it hit their device.

Penetration testers have long turned to laptops for all of the tools needed to get down and dirty with network security, but upcoming app Anti is looking to change all of that by bringing the most commonly used utilities to Android. Unveiled at Defcon, this app offers Wi-Fi scanning for open networks, finding potential target devices along the way. It will also expose the IP addresses of remote servers, as well as offer attacks like Man-in-the-Middle using exploits found in out-of-date software.

Every year, Defcon brings about some new concepts, hacks, vulnerabilities, and other digital tomfoolery. Sometimes it's all in good fun, but other times it's all too scary, which happens to be the case with a new class of Android malware that could allow for phishing attacks and pop-up ads alike.

Thanks to a design flaw in Android, there is a "feature" that allows an application to steal focus and pull itself into the foreground, bypassing the notification system entirely.

It has been nearly a day since Samsung pushed the TouchWiz UX update to retail Galaxy Tab 10.1 units across the country, and having spent most of the day playing with it, I want to share my thoughts on it with all of you.

Before we get into the details, though, I want to address one important thing: root access. My Tab 10.1 was rooted (stock ROM and kernel) with ClockworkMod recovery before the update started rolling out, so I was naturally hesitant to pull it for fear of losing root privileges.

Motorola XOOM 3G owners, today is your lucky day. Okay, well, maybe not lucky, but still good - the OTA update to Android 3.2 has officially started rolling out. This update brings some subtle, yet nice new features to the Motorola tablet:

+  Screen Scaling Compatibility Mode:
Ability to switch to double pixel mode for selected applications.
When selected, application sub-windows and drop down menus are
also doubled. In addition, pixel doubling settings are saved for each
application.

Gaming on Android devices has come a long way in the past several months, but it can be quite difficult to adapt to touch-screen-only gaming. During intense games, I tend to be pretty heavy-handed, which makes me a bit nervous when the my controller is also the screen, so I would love to have a way to enjoy games on my phone or tablet without destroying the display. Fortunately, Dancing Pixel Studios created an app that allows you to use a Playstation3 six axis controller over Bluetooth.
