It's been a while since we've seen a new set of those little Android figurines that everyone loves. After a long wait, however, Series 3 will be available at 8AM PT today. This collection, of course, brings all new faces to our beloved mascot, and the Dead Zebra guys have really gone above and beyond this go around, as some of the designs are incredibly intricate. Here's a quick look at what you'll get out of Series 3:

1 2 3 4

5 6 7 12

8 9 11 10

All of these are awesome, but I think the Nexus is my favorite.

Following the release of of its updated app earlier this month, Netflix has officially launched its new Android interface today for users running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) or later on their smartphones.

The new interface manages to fit a lot of content on your screen at once, and users will notice that there is a new 'continue watching' row at the top of the screen. This feature has been available on tablets for a while, but this latest update shows the content that you've recently been watching, and lets you continue from the point where you left off.

One of the most anticipated OS upgrades in recent Android history has reportedly begun in Europe (specifically, Poland) where official Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean firmware was discovered via Kies a couple of hours ago. Since no carrier marking was attached to the announcement by SamMobile's tracker, it looks like the update applies to the unlocked, unbranded variant localized to Poland - specifically, GT-I9300MBDXEO. Google Now and the updated Google Search, offline speech recognition, Project Butter, expandable notifications - it's all there.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Will You Be Buying A New Kindle?

Earlier this week, Ron gave us an interesting look at what codenames came before Android 1.5, Cupcake (spoiler: 1.1 was "petit four," and 1.0 didn't have any codename at all). It's hard not to read the post without taking a nostalgic walk down memory lane, isn't it? I still remember heading into my local T-Mobile store to play with the G1 when it launched.

If you're a close follower of tech, you're probably familiar with the LG Intuition, or at least its European brother, the Optimus Vu. The major selling point: a 5", 1024x768 (4:3) display. Sure, the other specs are noteworthy in that they match other high-end phones, with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, 1GB RAM, Android 4.0, and LTE. But that massively wide screen is undoubtedly going to be the talking point.

The Redbox movie and video game rental kiosks that seem to be at every McDonald's, Walgreens, Walmart, and umpteen other locations across the country are easily one of the most convenient ways to get your entertainment fix. If Redboxes in your town are anything like they are in mine, however, there's always a line of people. Instead of standing around waiting for you chance to grab The Cabin in the Woods, though, you could fire up the recently updated Android App.

It has been quite a long while since I've heard the name "LG Optimus Black," but it seems that Team CyanogenMod hasn't forgotten about this once-powerful handset. The first CM10 nightly for the 4" handset just showed up on Get.CM, and unlike other CM10 devices, has made this jump directly from CM7.

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.

Motorola made some changes to its firmware update timeline this morning. It looks some ICS updates have been delayed, while others that were once promised are now undergoing evaluation. Here's a look at what changed.

  • The Atrix 4G and Atrix 2 were originally slated to get ICS in Q3 of 2012, but have been updated to "further plans coming soon." We're not exactly sure what that means, but it doesn't sound very promising.

Real innovation is suddenly becoming depressingly rare in the mobile space: look no further than the army of Temple Run clones that have come out in the last few months. Sure, most are fun, and some even eclipse the original (see Agent Dash), but they're all copying game mechanics pretty shamelessly. In this environment, it's so refreshing to see something like Fort Courage: a new game that adds compelling and exciting elements to an old formula.
