CyanogenMOD-Logo

The CyanogenMod team has certainly been busy this week; a few days ago we saw the first CyanogenMod 9 nightly builds appear for the AT&T Galaxy S II and HP Touchpad, and now the original Samsung Galaxy S can join in the party, too.

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

dungeon-hunter-3-android

When Dungeon Hunter 3 was originally advertised all the way back in December 2011, we were promised an Android release in "January 2012". Unfortunately, those plans didn't quite come to fruition, but fast forward a couple of months to the end of March and you can finally download the game for your Android device from the Play Store for free.

Like the iOS version, there are 16 arenas for you to fight through, and each of these can be played at 5 levels of difficulty so that you can return to them on a higher difficulty level as you get better.

philips-android-connect

The last time we saw the Philips Android Connect media player discounted, it was available for $110 from Best Buy. Today, we're going one (or five) better, as you can pick up the same media player for just $99 plus $5 shipping from Woot.com.

The Connect normally retails at $219.99, although it's available on Amazon for just over $160. That means that if you buy it from Woot.com today, you'll be saving at least $55.

 Are you looking for a new way to send images to friends with a twist? Or maybe you've just been reading a few too many John le Carré novels lately? Either way, you may be interested in this neat little application that's available in both paid and free versions for Android called Camopic.

Camopic, like many apps that are available for Android, allows you to share images with your friends, but when both parties are using Camopic on their phones, the true image that is being sent can be hidden behind another one.

People living in the US, UK, Canada, and Japan have been able to enjoy renting and purchasing movies from the Google Play library for some time now, and today, anyone living in France can use the service to get their movie fix as well.

If you have a French Google Play account, you will now have a link to purchase movies both online at play.google.com and through your Android phone. To celebrate the French launch, French classics such as 'La Grotte Des Rêves Perdu' and 'Le Bal Des Actrices' have been added to the store for everyone to enjoy.

temple-run-icon

After countless bad copies, the official Temple Run game has finally hit the Google Play store! Like the iOS version, it's available for free and contains no adverts anywhere in the game. You can, however, make in-app purchases of coins to help you buy various items from the store as you progress. We'll cover that in a bit more detail later on, but for now, let's jump right in to the review!

Some owners of the original AT&T Galaxy S II may have been left feeling unwanted when Ice Cream Sandwich leaked for the GSII Skyrocket a couple of days ago, but now they have their very own version to download and play around with.

This morning, RootzWiki posted a leaked built of Ice Cream Sandwich for the original Galaxy S II, and looking at the build.prop file alongside the screenshots of the build, it seems to be the real deal from Samsung, just like the leak for the Skyrocket.

panasonic eluga
Last Updated: January 21st, 2013

Panasonic is set to enter the high-end smartphone market in Europe and Japan in the coming weeks with the waterproof and dustproof Eluga.

We first saw the Eluga at Mobile World Congress last month, and although it looks like a great phone on paper, with a dual-core CPU and qHD display, it disappointed us when we went hands-on. Nevertheless, this is still big news for the European market, where Panasonic isn't known as a smartphone brand at all.

philips as351

If you're in the market for an Android speaker dock for your phone, then you'll want to pay attention right about now. The Philips AS351, the little brother of the AS851 that we reviewed and loved a few months ago, is currently available for $95 on Amazon with a $20 coupon that takes the price down to just $75. That's over 40% off the list price of $129.99.

Like its more expensive counterpart, the AS351 comes with Bluetooth functionality built-in which allows you to listen to your music without having to physically dock your phone, although there's no remote control with this model so you'll have to change any volume settings on the unit itself.

logmein-rescue

LogMeIn has announced a partnership with HTC that will see its Rescue software pre-installed on all future Android smartphones and tablets. Using a combination of an applet on HTC devices and support software across the company's worldwide call centers, customers will be provided with remote support that allows the person on the other end of the phone to take control of your device and run various tests.

To protect customers from inadvertently handing their phone over to a stranger, the applet will only "securely connect their devices to HTC customer care representatives during active support calls."

Once a technician is connected to a device they will be able to run remote diagnostics, push common device and network configuration settings, and remotely control the customer's device to resolve issues.
