Last Updated: December 29th, 2011

Our second, and last, giveaway for today is a little more literary than the offerings we've had so far, and really, is pointed more towards those who are looking to get into Android programming and development. So, we do ask that you only enter this contest if you actually want the book, because there aren't many Android giveaways out there aimed at the developer crowd. And don't worry devs, this isn't the only InformIT title we'll be offering as part of our Mega-Holiday Giveaway - it's just the first.

You've probably heard of Schemer by now, Google's new service to help you track all of the crap you want to do during your lifetime. Doesn't really matter what it is - you can scheme everything from reading a book to taking a trip to trying a new food (and everything in between).

If you're still lost as to what I'm babbling about, watch this:

In short, it lets you remember all the stuff you want to do, as well as instantly gracing your face with a handlebar moustache.

Wyse Technology, the company behind some some powerful remote access apps, has released a new Android app into the Market today called PocketCloud Explore. The app is simple in nature, but quite practical in use, as it allows you to access the files store on your PC remotely from your Android device, safely and securely.

SamsungEpic4GTouchFront-550x550

Update: If your device received the update but didn't successfully install it, a fix is on the way. There's no official word as to when it will be available, but they're shooting for sometime next week.

Looks like Sprint started pushing a small OTA update to the Samsung Epic 4G Touch that fixes a couple of quirky issues:

  • 4G Sprint Hotspot disconnects when in a phone call
  • Radio loses signal and may require power cycle

The update is rolling out in stages and will hit all devices within the next 10 days.

The amount of quality games for Android just keep growing, and show no signs of slowing anytime soon. To add to the list of OMG that looks incredible! games, SoulCraft THD will be coming to Tegra-powered phones and tablets later this month, bringing an action packed holy war to the palm of your hand.

The premise of the game is pretty sick: humans are on the verge of discovering the key to eternal life, but the angels and demons have something to say about that.

Galaxy-Nexus

Update x2: Amazon Wireless just dropped the price of the Galaxy Nexus for new subscribers down to $150 (still $250 for upgrades). It's only "for a limited time" so you better hurry!
Update: Wirefly just dropped the price a bit more, down to $190 with a new two-year agreement or $240 for upgrades.

Well, it's finally here – Verizon's variant of the hotly anticipated Galaxy Nexus is available at last, going live with a variety of online retailers just moments ago.

Update: We've also got the images for the newest update to the Galaxy Nexus, Android 4.0.2:

Google Android software engineer Jean-Baptiste Queru has just let loose a factory image of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, meaning developers now have an official software build to recover from bricks and to tinker with to their hearts' contents. You can find the image, ITL41D, here. The post also indicates more Verizon Galaxy Nexus goodies will be coming later, so we'll keep you updated as more is released.

With the launch of the Galaxy Nexus, there's a good chance that many users left their current carrier to go with Verizon. Since Big Red no longer offers unlimited data plans, keeping tabs on your data usage is an absolute must. For that, Onavo is here to help, and the most recent update to its app makes monitoring your usage even easier.

The new widgets include App Watch, which helps you keep track of how much data is being used an a per-app basis; a data plan used widget, which offers a quick look at where you're at for the month (with percentage used); and a live data usage 1x4 that shows how much data you've used in the last 30 minutes.

If you're the proud new owner of a Galaxy Nexus on Verizon, then your device should be receiving its first OTA update sometime today. It's mostly a bug-fixer, with a few optimizations thrown into the mix:

Device features

  • Optimized Mobile Hotspot when used with VPN.
  • Optimized 3G/4G data sessions for faster response times.
  • Fixed an incorrect notification that “data wasdisconnected due to roaming”.
  • Wi-Fi now automatically reconnects when returning to a known Access Point.
