Though it was originally promised before the end of 2012, Futuremark has finally made good on its plans to bring a version of its highly popular graphics benchmark 3DMark to Android.

The mobile version of 3DMark uses a demo known as 'Ice Storm' to stretch your GPU's legs to their respective limits, and is definitely rather impressive to watch. Testing on an Optimus G Pro with a Snapdragon 600 chipset, it's apparent that even the top-tier Adreno 320 GPU begins to struggle under the intense demands of Ice Storm, and not merely during wide-pan shots: intricate models, effects, and textures are used in the demo.

The wireless service landscape is undergoing significant changes in the US this year. T-Mobile just launched it's kind-of no contract plans with monthly hardware payments, something no other US carrier offers. Sprint is in the early stages of its LTE rollout, a buyout from Japanese firm Softbank, and the acquisition of Clearwire (which seems more likely with each passing day). AT&T has already gained the #2 LTE spot in the US, but may have turned off a good number of potential Galaxy S4 buyers by pricing the device at $250 on contract, while continuing to push its own shared data plan model.

This is the Android Police 3rd Anniversary Giveaway #5 - our final awesome Tegra giveaway!

A long time ago (about three years ago, actually), at a keyboard somewhere in or around San Francisco, Android Police's first post was written. In the three years since that article, a lot has happened. We've put together a great team, and we're extremely proud of the news we post each and every day.

If you're a car nut, a paranoid parent, or a small business owner looking to do a little, uh, company vehicle economy analysis, Verizon's teamed up with Delphi to create the Vehicle Diagnostic system. It's actually pretty cool!

Verizon will sell you the Delphi hardware module, which should work with a majority of ODBII-compliant vehicles 1996 and later. You hook this little guy up to your vehicle's ODBII port, and it automatically starts sending data back to your web dashboard (and/or the Android app) via its built-in data connection.

Soundfreaq isn't the best-known player in the Bluetooth audio market, but if you haven't checked them out, there's never been a better time to try. The company's new Sound Platform 2 is a heavy-hitting stationary speaker system with a set of pipes that really sing, and a genuinely useful dual-speaker pairing mode (read on for more about that).

I reviewed Soundfreaq's Sound Kick last year, and came away genuinely impressed. It's still my go-to portable speaker around the house, and occasionally travel.

An active thread at XDA has multiple posters (here, here, and here) claiming that Sprint is cutting off shipments of the Optimus G, and that the device has reached 'end of life' status, meaning it will be discontinued soon. One poster included a photo of an inventory spreadsheet indicating as much:

Two other posters claimed to have received similar information, one of whom suggested quite correctly that the Optimus G's recent participation in the "buy one get one free" promo means Sprint is probably trying to clear out remaining stock.
