Hot on the heels of the Nexus Prime's blurrycam debut, Samsung has provided us a tantalizing peek at the so-called Nexus Prime in a teaser video leading up to Mobile Unpacked 2011, where they are sure to unveil Google's next flagship device.

It appears that rumors pointing toward a curved display are true, and that the Nexus Prime will share the sleek, trim form factor that we've come to expect from Samsung's mobile offerings.

GLWG has a ton of different environments, multiplayer capability, and openFeint achievements, making it a dynamic game with certain replay value.

Adding to the elements you may expect in a turn-based strategy game, Great Little War Game is styled in an almost cartoonish, comical way while still offering big guns and explosions.

The creators of Age of Defenders, a game coming soon to Android and iOS (and already available for PC and Mac), released the game's first trailer today, giving viewers a taste of what's in store for its release.

The game combines the familiar tower defense genre with offensive strategy, and even allows for online play. Better still, the game's desktop version can run directly from your computer's browser.

The graphics are clean, sharp, and realistic, and there are plenty of environments to play through.

Adobe, the masterminds behind the ubiquitous Creative Suite of products, has just announced Adobe Touch Apps, a set of apps aimed at Honeycomb tablets, allowing users to perform sophisticated design, editing, and generally creative tasks from just about anywhere.

Perhaps the most exciting member of Adobe's new group of apps is Photoshop Touch, which is pretty much Photoshop on a tablet. The app allows for layer control, blending modes, curves adjustments, and almost everything you've come to expect from its desktop counterpart.

Typically, I'm not very interested in theming for Windows, and I resist change to my desktop configuration as much as possible. I was convinced today, however, to give it a try with Android Skin Pack 1.0 from Hamed Danger.

Android Skin Pack 1.0 transforms your desktop, disguising the start menu as a notification bar, and adding a launcher dock at the bottom of your screen (albeit with several more icons than its Android counterpart).

Update: In a not-so-unexpected (read: expected) twist, Big Red has pulled the update for the TBolt, so if you haven't gotten it yet, now you know why. There isn't much info as to when it will start rolling out again, but we'll let you know when we find something out.

The wait is finally over - Thunderbolt users can now officially pull the latest update for their devices, Android Gingerbread 2.3.4, fresh from the oven.

Panasonic has announced a unique Android offering headed for Softbank, a Japanese carrier, officially unveiling the Lumix Phone 101P today.

The Lumix Phone looks almost exactly like a pocket-sized digital camera, except for its 4" touch screen and Android 2.3 software. Under its surprisingly slender frame, it houses some interesting specs:

  • 4-inch QHD LCD screen with 960×540 resolution
  • 13.2MP CMOS Lumix sensor with “Mobile Venus Engine“
  • Waterproof body
  • TI OMAP4430 dual-core CPU (1GHz)
  • Ultra Speed compatibility (Softbank's broadband network)
  • microSD card slot
  • Infrared connection
  • E-wallet function
  • Digital TV tuner
  • A sleek body (64×123×9.8mm)
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread

There's no word yet on pricing, or whether this phone will make an appearance in other countries, but it seems like a unique fusion between a point-and-shoot camera and a mobile phone, and it will be interesting to see how its 13.2MP sensor performs, especially next to Samsung's newly-announced 16MP sensors.

Tower Defense is probably one of the most populated genres in mobile gaming, or at least it seems that way. There are tons of games in this style to choose from, so it's rare to see something that changes things. Jelly Defense from Infinite Dreams attempts just that, putting a whimsical, almost cute touch on the genre of tower defense.

The game starts off with a brief intro story about the peaceful nation of jelly inhabitants in which the game takes place.
