Finally, after many months of waiting, the official Twitter client for Android has received an update that adds some long-awaited functionality, like push notifications and the ability to seamlessly transition between multiple accounts.

You can enable push notifications by heading into the Settings menu and tapping "automatic refresh," then selecting the type of updates that you want to notified of.

Motorola Photon GHLks

Sprint's newest dual-core device, the Motorola Photon 4G, is set to land on The Now Network sales floor on July 31 for the now industry-standard price of $199 with a two-year agreement. This is the first WiMax phone to come out of Motorola's camp, and it sports some rather impressive specs:

Motorola Photon GVS PHOTON_4G_Dyn_R_horiz_VideoPlayback_small

  • 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor
  • 4.3 inch qHD display
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB onboard storage
  • 8MP rear shooter, VGA front facing camera
  • Kickstand
  • Global-ready
  • Mobile hotspot
  • Advanced, enterprise level IT security
  • Gingerbread
  • Webtop capable

Judging by the official press release, it looks like the Photon won't be lacking any accessories either.

Last Updated: July 23rd, 2011

Sprint has been making great strides to bash its competitors and show us who has the real unlimited data plan as of late, but this new ad puts it all on the table: Verizon and AT&T charge overage fees for anything more than 2GB and T-Mobile throttles your speed after a certain amount of consumed bandwidth, but The Now Network gives you unlimited data, sans-catch for one price. Have a look:

The more Sprint ads I see, the more I want to jump ship from Verizon, so they must be doing something right.

If you're looking for a cheap tablet experience, then look no further - as long as you're a fan of Archos on Facebook, then you can grab the Archos 70 for $190, and it even includes a free case. Sure, it may not be the hottest thing in the tablet world right now, but for less than you would normally pay for some eBook readers, it's still hard to beat this deal.

While the official Gingerbread OTA for the Incredible 2 started rolling out a couple of days ago, there are some users running a previously leaked version of 2.3 that are left out in the cold with no way of updating - until now, that is. Thanks to an anonymous tipster calling himself Pig Benis, we've gotten a hold of the official RUU from Verizon with the build number 2.18.605.4 (the same as the OTA) for your flashing pleasure.

Yesterday we heard that the Sony S1 tablet could be available for pre-order in the UK in early September, and now Engadget is reporting that the S1's brother, the Playstation-branded Sony S2, will be hitting the States on AT&T's HSPA+ network. Don't expect it to carry the same (lame) S2 name, however, as Sony made sure to note that's just a codename.

What Sony execs didn't note, though, is price, availability, or any other important information that consumers usually want to know.

Samsung-Galaxy-Tab-10.1-Android-3.1-Honeyomb

We already know that Samsung is prepping an update for the US Galaxy Tab 10.1 that includes the new Touchwiz UX interface, but if you just can't wait to get your hands on it, then LevitateJay over at the XDA Forums has the solution for you.

This is for rooted devices only.

Even though we're still waiting to see Touchwiz UX here in America, the Italian version of the Tab 10.1 is already shipping with it intact.

Today Google announced a new version of the Android Market via its Android Developers Blog, and it aims to ease the pain of navigating the current market. The layout is entirely different, as it's designed to highlight top apps and games and improve the user experience. The update will also bring the addition of Books and Movies to US handsets, and other "select countries" soon after.

Update: Why wait if you can download the new Market right now.

The update also brings some nice updates for phones, like the ability to move it to the SD cards and improved device support, including the Nexus S running Android 2.3.4.

I've been using Evernote for quite a while now, and while I really like it, there are things that I've found myself wishing it had. It's almost as if the Evernote team read my mind, because they have incorporated all of the features that I frequently use on the desktop version to the mobile version, including rich text formatting, bullet points, lists, and checkboxes, making the overall experience much more akin to that of the desktop.
