Update: All good things must one day come to an end, and alas, it looks like Sony's just decided to issue a mandatory update to all PS3s that breaks this jailbreak method. Heartbreaking, I know.

If Sony's PS3 gaming system took a step backward in functionality when Sony disabled its ability to install Linux, it's just taken two steps forward again.

t4nav, a Senior Member of xda-developers, has just discovered a method to hack the PS3 using a Nexus One or a Desire!

Introduction

Well, well, well. I never thought the day would come: the HTC Desire, first announced at Mobile World Congress in February, has finally landed in the States! Of course, six months is a long time in the world of technology, so when I first started reviewing the Desire, my expectations weren't nearly as high as those of, say, my colleague Ian Douglas when he began reviewing the Samsung Epic 4G.

Well it's not the first phone to get FroYo, or even the first phone with HTC's Sense UI to receive the delicious update, but Froyo is coming to UK carrier O2's HTC Desire. The update hit the air - before being pulled almost immediately!

According to O2's full statement posted on their forums,

Hi all
As some of you will have noticed the Android 2.2 Froyo update for HTC Desire on O2 went live this morning.

Fun and advertising rarely come together...unless, of course, Motorola and Verizon's Droid ad campaign is involved. First it was iDon't, then it was DroidDoes, and now it's a series of newspaper ads, the first of which poked fun at the iPhone 4's external antenna and the latest of which takes a jab at Apple's war on Flash.

As the above newspaper ad shows, it turns out more people than just us Android nerds care about Adobe Flash (or at least, that's what Motorola would like us to believe).

It's clear from what other reviewers think as well as the specifications Samsung's released so far that the Galaxy Tab will be the Android tablet to get at the time of its launch (which, mind you, has still not been announced). Unfortunately, there are still a few things that could go wrong, not the least of which is pricing. Today, it would appear that mystery has been debunked by a recent tweet from German carrier O2 as well as the latest round of rumors.

Ever since the first rumors about an Apple tablet started circulating around the blogosphere, we Android enthusiasts have been dying to see an Android tablet of equivalent caliber, and it seems like Samsung's new Galaxy Tab might just be the one.

Unfortunately, Android Police did not have a chance to visit, simply because no member of the team lives close enough to Germany to drive there in a reasonable amount of time, and not one of our readers offered to pay for the plane tickets (how disappointing!).

It was only a matter of time, right? Just as with the original Droid, Motorola has been quick to create a GSM version of the Droid 2 for all of our non-American friends (hello, John Thompson) that appears to be identical to its Verizon-bound cousin.

That's right: the Motorola Milestone 2 has just been announced, along with Android 2.2 FroYo, an enhanced MotoBlur skin, a 5MP camera, 8GB of onboard storage as well as an 8GB microSD card, a 1GHz OMAP SOC processor, 512MB of RAM, and 720p HD video recording (one of the Droid 2's major omissions).

While the current state of Android tablets is measly to say the least, it looks like that may be changing soon enough, with the Galaxy Tab that we will (hopefully) see announced in 3 days at IFA 2010, the recently announced ViewSonic ViewPad 7 Froyo tablet, and now five new Archos tablets.

Admittedly, the Archos name didn't exactly excite us (this is, after all, the same company that made the resistive touchscreen-impaired, buttonless, Android 1.6-laden, Archos 5 Internet tablet) but after a closer look at what they've got to offer, we think the manufacturer might be onto something here.

The crafty folks over at Droid Dog have just unearthed another secret buried deep in the G2's source code: a Google Voice widget.

They claim that it looks a lot like this:

and displays the amount of money in your Google Voice account, a compose message button, settings for Voice, a button for quick access to your inbox, and a button to turn Voice off.

Droid Dog is also reporting that the G2 will come with "just about every Google app available for Android," right out of the box.

A little over a week ago, we discovered the Droid Pro, Droid 2 World Edition, and a Motorola tablet (codenamed "Stingray") sitting around in Verizon's internal systems. Since then, there has been endless speculation about whether the Droid 2 World Edition and the Droid Pro are one device. Although there was never enough evidence to support that claim, there was plenty of evidence mounted against it (for example, why would there be two model numbers in Verizon's internal system that had the description of "Droid or D2"?)

Today, an Engadget tipster has debunked that rumor with another screenshot (above) that clearly identifies the A956 as the Droid World Edition (WE) and the A957 as the R2-D2 edition of the Droid 2.
