leaked roadmap
Last Updated: August 27th, 2011

Get ready, Verizon customers. IGN just leaked Verizon's alleged 2011 roadmap, and, unsurprisingly, it features Android quite heavily. While there aren't too many details on any of the devices outside of what we already know, it will give you a good general idea of what to expect from Verizon this year:

  • Samsung Stratosphere: Previously rumored as Verizon's version of the Samsung Galaxy S2, the Stratosphere is listed as a "4G Smartphone w/Android 2.3." While it isn't exactly confirmation, there is a chance that this rumor was spot-on.

So, how's that for exciting news, TBolt owners? Since HTC clearly missed the Q2 update window that was originally announced, they moved it to the next logical choice... Q3. That's probably the best decision, especially when you consider the fact that we're already well into Q3.

The official word, per an HTC representative:

We are excited to announce that the HTC Thunderbolt will receive the Gingerbread (Android 2.3) update in Q3 2011.

Pocket Legends developer Spacetime Studios has lifted the VCAST-exclusive barrier on its latest game, Star Legends: The Blackstar Chronicles, and dropped the full version in the Android Market as an open beta for all to enjoy.

ss-480-0-5 ss-480-2-1

Star Legends is a Sci-Fi MMO that takes place in the depths of space, where you're immersed in a world of space ships, asteroid fields, and all other sorts of galactic habitats. You can choose from three different types of characters, all endowed with their own specific abilities: Commando, the rough-and-tough warrior type; Operative, a fast gun-slinging destroyer-of-all; or Engineer, a support-based character, ready to buff and heal the team.

ToshibaThrive_04

A few days ago we told you about a deal where you could get the Toshiba Thrive 8GB for $380, but if 8GB just isn't enough storage for you, then you should head over to Digital Etc. where you can get the Thrive 16GB for $405 after using coupon code THRIVE405.

Considering this is a dealer that we've never heard of before, we did a bit of research to make sure everything is kosher.

Last week we told you that Samsung would be holding an event in NYC on August 3rd (today) to unveil the TouchWiz UX update for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi. That event has come and gone, and while attendees are getting their Tab's updated live, the rest of the country will have to wait until August 5th to see the update. Of course, if you live in NYC, you can swing by The Shops at Columbus Circle between 1:00PM to 6:00PM and get your Tab updated immediately.

The-Google-Samsung-Nexus-S-4G

You've probably been seeing this deal all over the net for the past couple of days, but we still want to make sure that you don't miss out on it. For today only, you can head over to your local Best Buy and grab some stock-Android goodness for absolutely nothing. The best part? This deal is good for any of the three applicable carriers - 3G on T-Mobile or AT&T, or the 4G variant on Sprint.

Sure, it may not be the newest tablets on the market, but it is definitely still one of the most capable.
