It looks like Motorola's follow-up to the Droid X will be hitting its planned release date - sometime later in May - after all. According to Droid-Life's sources, the Droid X2 (or Droid X², if you feel like stylin') will be released on May 26, with all the following luscious hardware in tow:

  • 4.3" qHD (960 x 540) display
  • Dual core 1 GHz Tegra 2 processor
  • 8 megapixel rear camera
  • 720p video capture
  • HDMI out
  • 8 GB internal memory

Looking at the image of the phone, the blue notification bar suggests that the device will come with Gingerbread pre-installed, as that is exactly what the Gingerbread build for the original Droid X looks like.

In case you thought Android's extremely fast-paced growth was being exaggerated, comScore's latest report on mobile market share might just convince you otherwise: From December 2010 to March 2011, Android not only kept its first place position among mobile platforms in the US, but it shot up 6 percentage points - far greater than all other platforms.

In fact, the only other platform that had growth was - predictably - iOS, with a 0.5 point increase.

at&t

AT&T has taken a lot of heat from Android fans, and for good reason - they were the last of the four major US carriers to truly embrace it, and even then they made the controversial decision to block users' ability to sideload apps - i.e., install apps not offered on the Android Market. Their intentions were only to protect users from "bad apps," but of course this also meant that users have been unable to install any type of beta apps or, more notably, the Amazon App Store.

HTC Flyer

We may not know exactly when HTC's first foray into the Android tablet world will launch (though we would guess sooner rather than later), but if you simply cannot wait to crack open that case and tear into the user manual, we have good news for you. A PDF file containing the manual has been leaked, along with a several nice-looking wallpapers. Inside the manual, you'll find a full run-through of Sense 3.0, as well as more information on the Scribe software.

TweetDeck

Twitter has been pushing its own official clients onto more and more devices - including Android - for some time now, and the idea of them buying out another popular Twitter client is certainly not a new one. That's why it won't come as too much of a surprise to hear that Twitter has reportedly acquired TweetDeck for the sum of around $40 - 50 million, a purchase that includes cash and Twitter stock.

Transformer

The Transformer is already a pretty great deal in the world of Android tablets - you get the same 10.1" screen and dual core processor as its competitors, for the low price of just $399.99. But if that price point isn't enough to get you to rush out and buy one, or you'd like some extra cash for that keyboard dock, you're in luck - you can get it from Target for a cool $40 off by using the code TCA27BAR at checkout.

The tablet news just keeps on coming. In the past few days, we've already caught wind of two Honeycomb tablets from Lenovo, and now Sony is officially revealing the S1 and S2 tablets. The event is being live blogged by the Wall Street Journal here, but thanks to an official press release we have plenty of details on both the tablets. First up, the S1:

  • 9.4" display
  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb
  • "Off-center of gravity design" (check out this mockup for an idea of what this means)
  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
  • Front and rear cameras
  • Wi-Fi and 3G/4G connectivity

And the S2:

  • Two 5.5" 1024 x 480 screens
  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb
  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
  • Front and rear cameras
  • Wi-Fi and 3G/4G connectivity

Both tablets will also be joining the Xperia Play as PlayStation Certified devices, as they will be able to play PS1 games using on-screen controls.

Lenovo

In case you aren't sold on any of the current crop of Honeycomb tablets, Lenovo is about to throw their hat in the ring with the ThinkPad Tablet (also called the Think Slate). The folks at This is my next got ahold of a PowerPoint with all the specs, and this tablet can certainly hold its own amongst the competition:

  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
  • Android 3.0 with custom Lenovo UI
  • 1280 x 800 IPS 10.1" display
  • 16, 32, and 64 GB models
  • USB, micro USB, mini HDMI ports
  • Full SD card reader
  • 3G and possible 4G connectivity

Interestingly enough, the Think Slate will also ship with two key optional accessories: a pen and a "keyboard portfolio case," which seem to mimic the HTC Flyer and Asus Transformer, respectively.

HTC Flyer

Everybody's favorite non-Honeycomb tablet is inching closer and closer to its US launch. The WiFi-only version of the HTC Flyer will be available for pre-order exclusively from Best Buy starting this Monday (April 25) for the rather competitive price of $499. It may be lacking in a dual-core processor, but hey, at least it won't be identical to the upcoming flood of Honeycomb tablets.

We've known about the upcoming "Easter Eggs" update to Angry Birds Seasons for some time now, but this short trailer gives us a quick glimpse into some of the 15 new levels that we can expect to see some time next week. You won't find any gameplay changes, but more levels to the classic Angry Birds formula are never a bad thing, right?
