The Motorola XOOM, the world's first Honeycomb tablet, costs a pretty penny - between $600 and $800, depending on the variant. If you picked up a XOOM in the last few months, you've probably asked yourself whether you should get some sort of protection, and, if so, which option you should go with.

Motorola has released a few official cases, such as the $40 PORTFOLIO, but most aftermarket case manufacturers, such as Otterbox, Amzer, Trident, and others, haven't put out many options.

Complaints about HTC's Sense UI becoming increasingly bloated are nothing new, but there's no denying that the skin has its upsides - and Reddit user TheEntireUniverse just unearthed another such boon. Behold, the preview image for Sense 3.0's "Friend Stream" widget:

For those not familiar with the reference, Jill Valentine is one of the main characters in the popular Resident Evil franchise, and the Nemesis-destroys-a-helicopter story was taken right out of the third game in the series.

Sprint

If you recently signed up for Sprint's service, then there's a good chance you took advantage of the current running promotion that adds 300 bonus minutes to the Everything Data 450 plan. That's awesome for you - but what about those who already have Sprint? You're not left out, my friends - you, too, can enjoy the benefits of 300 additional minutes every month for the low cost of nothing, and it's easier to get than you think: call and ask.

The Motorola Atrix has been making some serious waves as of late - first, we saw a Gingerbread test build that had an unlockable bootloader, and now the crew over at Android and Me have gotten a hold of some exclusive images showing the Atrix running Android 2.3.4 with the latest version of Gingerblur. Before I continue, have a look:

If these images are to be believed, then the Motorola Atrix is back in the game in a big way.

If you're a Mac user who scooped up the recently released Galaxy Tab 10.1, then there's little doubt you've already had to deal with some frustrations - like the fact that you couldn't even access the device's internal storage from your computer. Fortunately, Samsung pushed an update to Kies for Mac Beta that adds Galaxy Tab 10.1 support, so you can finally start loading it up with all of your favorite on-the-go goodies.

First-person shooter lovers, if you've been waiting for a good game in the FPS genre with multiplayer capabilities and awesome 3D graphics to hit the Android Market, you're going to want to check out Gameloft's latest offering - N.O.V.A. 2 HD that was just released into the Market.

Gameloft, which caught a lot of flak for avoiding the official Android Market for years, recently reversed its stance and vowed to start taking the Market more seriously.

Hulu, one of the top TV and movie streaming sites on the web, has long been an elusive target for Android users. At first, we didn't have Flash. Once we got Flash, Hulu started blocking Flash-enabled Android devices. Many hacks followed, but required modifications to the Flash apk and resulted in less than optimal viewing experience in the browser. In January, we finally saw the light at the end of the tunnel, when the upcoming official application was finally revealed, though without any promises on delivery timelines.

atrix_unlocked_bloader

Notch another victory for the Android community: shortly after Motorola publicly stated they would be moving towards unlockable bootloaders - even retroactively where possible - it appears that the Gingerbread update for the Atrix does just that. Brief Mobile laid hands on a leaked early build of the Android 2.3.3 update, and to their delight, found that unlocking the bootloader was as simple as using a simple console command.

I hereby declare this the poster child for "Mr.

Update: Annnnd it's live in the Market. That didn't take long, did it? Hit the widget below to grab it and get started knocking out 30 new levels of pig-destroying fun!

The arrival of summer brings several things: heat, sunshine, barbeques, vacations, and, of course, an update to Angry Birds Seasons! Cleverly titled "Summer Pignic," it'll be fun in the sun for the homicidal birds... or bird, rather. Judging by the video, it looks like you'll have to make it through this update with only one bird, which will make things quite interesting.

Normally, when we think about prepaid carriers, one thought comes to mind: low-end devices. Most manufacturers reserve their higher-end handsets for the Big Four, so those who don't want to empty their wallet each month on a wireless plan end up with very little to choose from when it comes to decent phones. However, that is all about to change with Huawei's upcoming Glory phone, which is set to land on Cricket Wireless this November.
