Earlier today, Google announced Google+ pages for businesses and other entities. Naturally, we rushed over to G+ to snag our piece of the pages pie, and we'd like to invite each and every one of you to circle the new Android Police Google+ Page!

We will continue to update the +Art Russ account for the time being, but go ahead and circle/share the new one so we can spread the word.

While we already know the world's first quad-core tablet will be the ASUS Transformer Prime, we just got a glimpse of the first quad-core phone. It's rumored to be called the HTC Edge, and the hardware sounds completely beast.

  • 4.7-inch 720p display
  • 1.5GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP f/2.2 lens
  • 10mm thick

There is one small detail that you may have already noticed: capacitive buttons. Of course, that doesn't mean this phone won't come with ICS right out of the gate, it just means that it won't take advantage of on-screen buttons.

Ah, the Droid Charge -- the Droid that never should have been. It was the first LTE Droid to hit Verzon and... well, its accomplishments stopped there. In fact, this once-flagship device is still running Froyo, rendering some of its hardware basically useless (like the front facing camera). Fortunately, Gingerbread may be just around the corner for those who bought into the Charge hype, as a new leaked build just landed on MyDroidWorld, courtesy of P3Droid.

When the Amazon Kindle Fire was announced, we were all pretty excited about its tablet-meets-e-reader form factor, low price, and powerful hardware. Barnes & Noble has fired back this morning with an equally impressive device (and in some aspects even more so), albeit with a slightly higher price tag. As always, both devices offer features that make them unique from each other -- but, at the end of the day, which one is the better choice?

Here's a tidbit of good news for those looking to pick up a new 4G LTE device on Verizon this month -- be it the Droid RAZR, HTC Rezound, Galaxy Nexus (granted that it actually comes out this month), or even an existing LTE handset. Starting tomorrow, November 8th, Big Red will be doubling the data for all new or existing customers who re-sign their two year agreement with an LTE phone.

We've already heard the rumors surrounding Barnes & Noble's next NOOK device, and now those rumors have been realized. B&N just took the wraps off of its NOOK Tablet, and if you've been thinking about picking up a Kindle Fire, you may just want to reconsider. The NOOK Tablet is rocking some serious hardware:

  • 7-inch IPS lamination display
  • 1GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB storage with SD card slot
  • Less than 1 pound
  • Great battery life -- up to nine hours of video playback; 11.5 hours of reading time

While the hardware is a definite upgrade over the NOOK Color, the look of the device is nearly identical, so owners of the original NC will feel right at home with this device in hand.

Motorola-Droid-RAZR-012

Oh, the DROID RAZR - the very name RAZR brings back memories of the turn of the century (we can say that now, right?) - flip phones and cheap, unlimited data. Those were the good 'ol days. But let's talk about the here and now, Motorola's latest Android phone is the company's most ambitious handset to date, and the general consensus? It's good, but... [insert complaint about battery life or width / Galaxy Nexus is coming comment here.]

In all seriousness, one great thing about rounding up a number of reviews in one place is finding out what numerous sources agree upon about a particular piece of hardware, and more interestingly, what they don't.

HTC's UK Facebook page was updated last night with information regarding just which HTC handsets would be in the "first wave" of phones to receive an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in early 2012. While the post was made on HTC's UK Facebook, the list contains a number of US-only devices. Those handsets are asterisked to indicate US-only availability (the Rezound, EVO Design, and Amaze). The others on the list include the Sensation (plus XL and XE versions), the Vivid, and the EVO 3D.
