TabletS

Sony's Tablet S (or "S1") was released over a year ago to little hubbub. Still, that's not keeping the increasingly-awesome Sony from shooting a new update out for it with many of the software features of its successor, the Xperia Tablet S. None of them are especially mind-blowing, but they certainly add functionality:

  • Guest Mode
  • Redesigned media players
  • More "Small" (floating) apps
  • Expanded functionality for the remote control app
  • New widgets
  • Social Feed Reader Cloud has been updated to Socialife
  • Oddly, they suggest people also download Watch Now from the Play store

Otherwise, things stay basically the same.

One of the most common questions users have regarding Google's various content offerings is "Why isn't it available in [insert any number of countries here]?" Google has been working to change that, offering more and more of the Play Store's non-app content abroad. In that spirit, today it announced that Google Play Movies is now available in Korea (where we saw Eric Schmidt having some Gangnam style fun earlier this week).

Those of us with rooted devices and a penchant for flashing ROMs know just how valuable a great backup tool can be. Titanium backup is undoubtedly one of the most popular (and most useful) backup tools around, and it just got an update to version 5.6.0.

The update, which had been floating around as a "test version" prior to official release, brings a few UI enhancements and fixes, an updated set of translations, and improved "Market Doctor" and "Force Attach" functions to repair broken links between apps and the Play Store.

When turntable.fm first came out on Android, we were excited. In my review, I said that it was a fantastic start, but could use a bit of polish. In no small part, because of those dang iOS-style buttons. While I still believe that iOS- buttons do not single-handedly make a lazy port, it's nice to see that the developer has taken the time to bring the UI in line with the newest guidelines.

Back in August, Halfbrick Studios brought their hit iOS game Jetpack Joyride over to the Android side. The problem was, though, you could only get it from the Amazon Appstore. That's not the case any longer, as the game has finally abandoned its exclusive period in the Appstore and is now available in the Play Store.

For those who may not have seen our previous coverage of the app or read Jeremiah's review (spoiler: he loved it), a little insight may be in order.

Big Red customers who just can't enough of the ol' pigskin, listen up: from now until October 1st, you can catch all the NFL action for free on your mobile with Verizon's NFL Mobile app. The service, which normally costs around $5 a month, allows you to stream live NFL content directly to your phone so you never miss a beat.

And, considering the app was just updated to add support for Jelly Bean and high-res screens, you can rest assured that it will work just fine on your newly updated Galaxy Nexus.

Do you like the idea of a low-end prepaid phone that's probably marginally overpriced for what it is? Does Cricket Wireless intrigue you? Then have I got the news of the century for you. Meet the ZTE Engage. It's not particularly exciting. It's not particularly cheap. But it's... a phone. And it runs Android 4.0. So there's that.

The ZTE Engage does other things, too. Like music. And apps.

How do you follow up an earth-shattering hit like Angry Birds? Not with Amazing Alex, Rovio's first property to branch out of their only previous IP. The game currently sits with only a tiny fraction of the downloads of Angry Birds, even on the free version. So with the third go-round, they've gone back to create a spinoff featuring the antagonists of the aggravated avians: Bad Piggies. The new game is a combination of the previous two, combining the simple physics-based goals of Angry Birds and the contraption building of Amazing Alex.

Wouldn't you know it - not long after ASUS has to delay the Jelly Bean update for the Transformer Pad Infinity, Acer silently starts pushing the update to the Iconia Tab A700.

Considering there are zero details at this time, we have no idea what changes have been made, but hopefully Acer found a way to make this HD tablet run a little smoother this go around.

Just yesterday, ASUS promised both TF201 and TF700 owners their Jelly Bean updates on September 28th and 29th, respectively. While they owned up to that for the Prime, the Infinity isn't so lucky: they just had to push the update back.

According to ASUS rep Gary Key, "a couple of applications that were recently updated (Facebook 1.9.10 on 9/20 as one example) required a last minute firmware update for the keyboard to operate correctly in the "Comment" area with Android 4.1."

It's not all bad, though - the update should still begin rolling out early next week.
