The Droid RAZR, despite not being officially released until 11/11/11 at 11:11 am EST, has already been given an insane price cut by Amazon Wireless, available for preorder tonight and sale tomorrow at just $111.11, a discount of more than $180.00 if you sign up for a new two-year agreement. If you want to upgrade your current device, the RAZR is available for $199.99 $249.99 $229.99 (the price went up after this post was published and keeps changing by the minute), which is still a great deal.

revue

Guerrino De Luca, CEO of Logitech, while speaking at the company’s Analyst and Investor Day yesterday, plainly delivered a statement that many of us could have seen coming, calling Logitech’s 2010 launch of the Revue set top box “a mistake of implementation of a gigantic nature.” Further, De Luca made it clear that Logitech had “brought closure to the Logitech Revue saga,” and plans to let inventory run out this quarter, with no sequel in the works for the manufacturer’s first Google TV box.

The creators of such marvels as My Beach and Celtic Garden, DualBoot Games, have outdone themselves this holiday season with Christmas HD - what I believe to be the most intricate live wallpaper I've seen on Android in a long time (ever?).

Customizable lights, gifts, tree topper, snowflakes, garlands, and a Christmas countdown are just the tip of the iceberg. Wait till you see your own photo above the fireplace, your family's names embroiled on the stockings, and a note to Santa signed by the same guy or gal who's looking back at you in the mirror every morning.

People who constantly wear Bluetooth headsets annoy me. I'll admit it. Yep, it's probably pretentious, judgmental, and just kind of mean, but nonetheless, that's where I stand (see: this highly relevant video). I figure it's only fair warning for you, our readers, going into this review. So, when Samsung offered me a chance to spend some time with their latest high-end Bluetooth headset, the HM7000 (the product naming department was on vacation), I accepted with a good deal of hesitancy.

How many task managers that keep track of To-Do items can we need on Android? The creators of Taskos, which in itself is a task list manager, thought we were in such dire need for one more that they had to one-up even themselves and create Any.DO.

Any.DO has a completely new interface that is so slick that you will find yourself wondering whether you're running an Android app at all.

How many times has this happened to you: While listening to music, something snags the chord of your earbuds, forcefully ripping them from your head. Yeah, I know what you're thinking, and I agree -- there are few things in this world that make me that mad almost instantly. Fortunately, there is an easy way to avoid such a catastrophe from ever happening again: a stereo Bluetooth headset.

Today we'll be taking a look at one such headset: the Jaybird Freedom Wireless Bluetooth (isn't that sort of redundant?) Buds.

Orange Pixel, creators of the well-received "Meganoid", just released a platform/shooter called "INC".

There are 40 levels of robot blasting action, and 8-bit styling and sound effects. It's sort of like Mega Man. The description claims "hard-but-fair gameplay," so there's retro difficulty to go along with those retro graphics. Xperia Play owners will be glad to hear that all their fancy buttons are supported (like you couldn't tell from the giant video thumbnail).

While some people prefer intense, console-like games on their mobile, almost everyone loves simple "time-killer" games. A perfect example of one such game is Super Rope, a new climbing game that recently landed in the Market.

First off, Super Rope is not only fun and easy to play, but it's absolutely stunning to look at. The environments are vibrant and full of life, which drastically adds to the appeal of the game.

If you want complete control of how your phone reacts to calls and text messages in nearly any situation, then a tool recently released to the Android Market called Call Master has your number. This is probably the most in-depth, advanced call and text firewall for Android, offering some insanely useful features. It's from the same developer as Root Call Blocker, and actually uses that as its base.

This app is for rooted users only.

Amazon pushed an update to its Appstore today that brings a few new features, as well as a much sleeker interface. The theme is much easier on the eyes now, as the formerly-white app is now wearing a suit of gray with hints of orange, which matches the color scheme of the upcoming Kindle Fire perfectly.

Aside from the change in appearance, the Appstore also has support for in-app purchases and parental controls now, as well as a page where you can check permissions before you purchase an app.
