We've highlighted a few deals of the Toshiba Thrive before, but Amazon just slashed the price of all three versions - 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB - to the lowest yet.

2011-08-15 16h44_01

Regardless of which variant you've been looking at, Amazon is definitely the way to go if you plan on buying any time soon -- the 8GB version is going for $370, 16GB's for $430, and the 32GB variant will set you back $500.

So, here's a new one: Samsung has apparently halted the TouchWiz UX update for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in order to "assess progress and ensure it's a positive experience for customers." We're not entirely sure what that means on a realistic level, but I'll go out on a limb and assume they found some sort of bug -- possibly one that is making some Tabs unusable by scrambling the graphics.

A few weeks ago, we heard a rumor that Motorola was working on a beefier version of the super rugged Defy, simple called the Defy+. Those rumors were realized today, as Moto official announced this new incarnation to the Defy line, complete with a faster processor and an upgraded shell.

The Defy+ will rock a 1GHz processor "that runs 25% faster" than the current Defy, Android 2.3.x, a 5MP rear shooter, 2GB built-in storage, and a 1700mAh battery underneath its 3.7 inch shell.

Last week, an HTC support representative told a customer that the Droid Incredible would not be updated to Gingerbread. Of course, we questioned this claim's validity, as we were absolutely certain that there was a test build on Verizon's servers at the time the statement was issued.

Turns out we were right, as the official update page is now live on Big Red's website. This is pretty good news for Incredible owners -- but the better news is that it's probably coming sooner than you think; possibly as early as this week.

Last week, Artem took the Primo Power Core 8200mAh portable battery pack for a spin, and he really liked it. But as good as it may be, for some, 8200mAh may be overkill. With that in mind, I took on the Scosche 5000mAh goBAT II portable charger and backup battery to see how well it would fuel my devices during everyday use.

At A Glance

First off, lets take a look at what this power pack has to offer.

A little more than two weeks ago a revolutionary (pun intended) new unlock and root solution was released by AlphaRev and Unrevoked that provided S-Off and NAND write access to a number of HTC devices. That tool received an update today that adds a number of previously unsupported device to the mix:

  • HTC EVO 3D GSM
  • HTC Thunderbolt
  • HTC EVO 4G running Gingbebread

    Since movie rentals were first enabled on Android devices, rooted users have been left out in the dark, without the ability to utilize the feature on their device. But, when the man steps in, what do Android users do? Find a way to circumvent the system, of course!

    Now, thanks to a clever dev named ften, a modified version of the Videos apk is available for download that bypasses the root and tamper checks, allowing rooted users to enjoy Google Movies like they should've been able to all along.

    The Acer Iconia A500 10.1 inch Honeycomb tablet has been quite a success thanks to its competitive specs and low price tag. Now its little brother, the 7 inch Iconia A100 is available in North America for those who want all the power of Honeycomb in a more pocket-sized shell.

    The Iconia A100 features all the guts of its bigger rivals, including a 1GHz Tegra 2 processor, 1GB RAM, 5MP rear shooter and 2MP in the front, all powered by Android 3.2, which has been optimized to run on 7 inch, 1024x600 displays.

    If you've spent any significant amount of time with Honeycomb, then you know that it has its fair share of shortcomings. Not saying that I don't love Honeycomb -- I'm simply saying that it could use a few improvements. In fact, some of the bugs or missing features that I've come across in Honeycomb make me scratch my head, as I don't understand such simple oversights or how basic functionality can be missing.

    Samsung-Galaxy-S2

    It looks like Sammy has something up its sleeve that will be exposed for all to see on August 29th in New York City. Touting a "major product announcement," we can only assume it means one thing: the Galaxy S II. Just typing it fills me with excitement, as we'll finally be getting what is probably the best smartphone on the planet.

    See that 'II' at the bottom? Subtle, Sammy. Real subtle.
