If you've always dreamed of brewin' and runnin' your own moonshine, but feared the slight legal implications of such a practice, then Vector Unit's new game Shine Runner holds the ticket to make all of your dreams come true.

Vector Unit is the development team behind the amazing jetski racing game Riptide GP, so we already know that they can knock out some fantastic graphics in aquatic environments, and Shine Runner looks no different.

Acer-ICONIA-TAB-A200_black-and-red-combo_low-550x329

Acer just pushed out the official announcement for its newest offering to the tablet world - the Iconia Tab A200. The interesting thing about this tablet, though, is that it's really not much different than the A500. Aesthetically, it does look different, but on the inside, it's nearly the same tablet:

Acer-ICONIA-TAB-A200_black-and-red-combo_low-550x329

  • 10.1-inch 1280x800 display
  • 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 2MP front-facing camera
  • Full-size USB port, microSD card slot
  • Android 3.2

While the Iconia A200 will initially ship with Honeycomb, Acer has promised that the tablet will be sporting ICS out-of-the-box beginning in January '12.

Our elusive friend the Galaxy Nexus has made yet another appearance at the FCC, gaining approval for GSM 850/1900 and WCDMA II/IV bands, indicating an impending AT&T release.

Update: A tipster has informed us that the GT-I9250T's 'T' suffix may indicate that the phone is not actually headed for the US, but for either Telcel in Mexico, or Telus in Canada. This speculation seems conceivable, given that previous Galaxy models with a T suffix went to one of the two carriers listed above.

In a reassuring blog post, Cyanogen recently told readers that "things are slowly starting to come together," regarding progress on the hotly anticipated Cyanogenmod 9, which is based on Android 4.0.

The entry goes on to explain that the devices most likely to see CM9 first are those based on OMAP4, MSM8660/7X30, and Exynos chips, as well as a few Tegra 2 tablets (including the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and ASUS Transformer).

HCI, a prominent provider of education and entertainment devices for the healthcare industry, has just revealed a new iteration of their RoomMate television line, powered by Android. These televisions can not only show you your favorite programs, but can also make use of specially developed apps to browse the web (using built-in WiFi), view photos, play games, and a lot more, making your hospital stay (or visit) a little more enjoyable.

Dolphin HD, one of the most popular Android browsers, was updated in the Market today to version 7.2. The updated app contains a toggle to enable the Webzine functionality, which following the privacy fiasco is now opt-in rather than opt-out.

UI-wise, the Exit popup can now be turned off and replaced with a simple back button double-tap, which finally lets you easily exit the browser by interacting with just a single button.

Google has released the latest of its monthly Android version distribution charts, and for the first time Android 2.3 Gingerbread is present on over half of all Android devices. A milestone, to be sure.

We also get a look at the end success rate of Honeycomb (a tablet-only version of Android), which achieved a mere 2.5% piece of the Android pie since the first Honeycomb device release back in February. Android 1.5 and 1.6 (Cupcake and Donut) have continued their march toward extinction, commanding only 2.1% of the Android population total.

Remember way back in May, when NVIDIA showed off Glowball to demonstrate the Tegra 3's awesome quad-core power? Well, it looks like the full version of the visually stunning, technologically fascinating "interactive demo" has made its way to the Tegra Zone.

Glowball isn't quite a game, as it consists of just two levels, and was specifically designed to showcase the Tegra 3's power, but it certainly seems like an enjoyable doodad for your Tegra 3 device.

Hey you! Take a break from dragon slaying for a moment and install this live wallpaper.

Nvidia has created this Skyrim live wallpaper, in case you somehow forget during the day you would rather be at home parked in front of your computer.

This picture isn't entirely accurate, when you get it on a real device, there's snowfall and rolling fog. Other than that, there isn't much to it. The foreground and background are on different layers, so they scroll at different speeds when you switch screens.

The endless teasing continues.

Verizon has posted the Galaxy Nexus version of their hideous visual voice mail app, despite having no way to, you know, actually use it. You can pay $2.99 a month for the privilege of using ...this:

Why was this even made? Ice Cream Sandwich has APIs for integrated visual voicemail, carrier crapware like this is no longer needed. Get with the program, Verizon.

I'm sure those with cash to burn and a blind spot for aesthetics will appreciate this when it is finally able to be used, which right now is looking like sometime around 2054.
