 Usually, when video games and zombies cross paths, the latter end up being our enemies. Because of their slow, plodding and plentiful nature, target practice against zombies is a fun (and scary) endeavor. However, in Com2uS' newest title, you're put in a unique position: this time, you're trying to save a zombie from his untimely death.

In Zombie Runaway you take control of a zombie who is running away (duh) from "evil" humans.

When I got my Galaxy Tab 10.1, one of the first apps I installed was Dolphin HD, and while it worked great, it still had that "phone" feel to it. Thankfully, the Dolphin Team has been hard at work prepping a version designed specifically for Android tablets (although, they're saying it's for "pads").

Since this is a beta version, it's clear that it's based off of Dolphin HD, as some of the menus still retain the phone vibe.

sprint

Enthusiast blog SprintFeed has uncovered a screenshot of Sprint's end-of-life (EOL) listings which indicates the handsets that Sprint will cease ordering in the coming weeks and months to free up space for its newer catalogue of devices.

The Android devices that will be getting the axe in July include the Motorola i1, followed by the white HTC EVO 4G in September, and the Samsung Transform, black HTC EVO 4G, and Samsung Epic 4G in October.

Motorola_XOOM

In the slowly unraveling drama that is the XOOM 4G LTE upgrade, another chapter has been put in place. Rumor has it that VZW XOOM owners may receive an email today letting them know the the upgrade will happen in September -- but we have no confirmation as of yet.

Update: Here is the email we received confirming that the update should indeed start in September:

The original word on the street was that the upgrade should have happened only three months after launch, a deadline severely missed by Motorola/Verizon.

Anyone who previously picked up an internet-device (computer or tablet) from Sprint may have been a little frustrated with the lack of insurance provided by the Now Network. That all changes today, as it has finally decided to toss some coverage to its users that provides some peace of mind if anything were to happen to their netbook, notebook, or tablet.

The coverage is basically like any other carrier: the plan covers mechanical or electrical breakdown, accidental damage, and if the device is lost or stolen.

Following our report in May of the upcoming HTC tablet named after the celebrated Italian composer Puccini, BGR has gotten its hands on some exclusive images of the device itself.

The first of the two high-res press shots grabbed by BGR features the front of the 10" tablet in what appears to be a bespoke case with a stylus and holder. The second image shows off the rear of the tablet which appears to be sporting an 8 MP camera, dual-LED flash, and stereo speakers and a mic.

Update: Since there are a lot of upset AT&T customers out there, a caring tipster decided to drop a photo over at Android Central that suggests AT&T may be getting a keyboard-less version of the GSII as well. With that said, I will express my absolute skepticism about this. There is but a single picture, and we all know how easily photographs can be manipulated. So, before you get too excited, I urge you all to take this at face value until we get more proof.

It has been quite an exciting (and busy) night for Thrive owners and hackers. The community managed to root the device, enable Superuser Permissions, and flash ClockworkMod Recovery. Thus far only a handful of people have taken the plunge, so issues could still arise, but preliminary results are looking good. In their own words:

Mine is the second fully working Thrive with Superuser access, Dalepl was first, and austeregrim bricked his to get shell root so we could get the system dump.

tab101_3

While not entirely unexpected, Verizon and Samsung have pulled a bit of a ninja act with the LTE Tab 10.1. We haven't heard a word about it lately, yet an official announcement has just landed in our inbox announcing it will go on sale in two days. The ubertablet will run from $530 for the 16GB model to $630 for the 32GB model, a $30 premium over the WiFi version. As an added bonus, Tab 10.1 purchasers will get a free $25 credit for the Samsung Media Hub.

developing android applications with adobe air

The 5th Android Police book giveaway is now over, and we've picked the winners. A copy of Developing Android Applications with Adobe AIR will be shipped to each of the following readers, selected by O'Reilly and Android Police, who answered this question:

Why do you think developers should build their apps with Adobe AIR instead of using a conventional approach?

Jeff:

I've long thought AIR made sense as a mobile development platform due to its ease of development and cross-platform potential.
