Looks like Moto is getting ready to push out a couple of budget Android-power handsets to various parts of the world (excluding the U.S.). First up is the little brother to the Defy, appropriately named Defy Mini.

The DM offers a lot of the same "life-proof" features as its big brother, including dust protection, a scratch-resistant screen, and protection against water damage, all packed into its tiny 3.2-inch shell. You'll find a 3MP shooter on the back of the Android 2.3 device, a VGA front camera, and it has 1,650mAh batter for up to 10 hours of talk time.

GALAXY-Tab-7.7-Product-Image-6

While we've yet to actually see a release date for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 that Samsung debuted back in September, the company has now dropped the kernel source code for the device. In the past, this usually indicates an impending release, so we're willing to bet that availability will be officially announced at CES next week.

For those who need a reminder of what the Tab 7.7 is all about:

  • 7.7-inch 1280x800 Super AMOLED Plus display (the first tablet to have this)
  • 1.4GHz dual-core Exynos
  • 3MP rear shooter, 2MP 'round front
  • Android 3.2
  • 5,100mAh battery

Of course, a lot can change in three months, so we may actually see some changes made to the specs of the device before its release.

AT&T started rolling out its 4G LTE network in September of 2011, and it has slowly been lighting up more and more cities across the nation since then. Eleven new markets are seeing the LTE treatment from Ma Bell this morning, including a couple of cities that started to see some LTE action early last month: New York City Metro areas, Austin, TX; Chapel Hill and Charlotte, NC; Los Angeles, Oakland, San Francisco, San Diego, and San Jose, CA; Orlando, FL; and Phoenix, AZ, bringing the total number of cities under AT&T's LTE umbrella up to 26.

We told you yesterday that Android 2.3 started rolling out to the Samsung Replenish on Sprint, and now it looks like the eco-friendly handset is coming to one of Sprint's pay-as-you-go carriers, Boost Mobile.

Boost announced the handset this morning, and while it's not a game-changing device in terms of spec, it does have a nice price tag: $99. No contract. You can't beat that with a stick.

Specs:

  • 2.8-inch display (240x320) with physical QWERTY
  • 600MHz single-core processor
  • 2MP rear shooter
  • Android 2.3
  • Made from recycled materials

Like I said, it's not a game changer.

Late last year Google chairman Eric Schmidt commented to an Italian newspaper that "in the next six months [Google planned] to market a tablet of the highest quality". His statement generated much speculation primarily over whether Google planned on releasing a self-branded "Nexus" tablet or whether they would merely partner with a device manufacturer, such as Motorola, Samsung, or HTC.

According to a rumour from Taiwanese electronics daily DigiTimes, Google may be preparing to launch an "own-brand tablet PC...targeting Amazon's 7-inch Kindle Fire".

Update: We're getting reports that NachoRoot also successfully roots the original Transformer, which, until now, has been unrootable on the latest firmware. Simply follow the directions listed below!

Transformer Prime - two words that we've heard quite a bit over the last week or so. Root - a word that we hear on a daily basis in the world of Android. What do you get when you put the two together?
