Dell isn't giving up on its tablet ambitions quite yet. The company has announced a slew of new devices today, two of which are Android slates. The Venue 7 and 8 are entry-level Android tablets running on Intel Atom chips, and you'll be able to buy them later this month for a competitive price.
Gravity Guy for Android has been downloaded over five million times, so there's a chance many of you are already familiar with it. This is a popular title, and with its unique gravity-shifting platforming, four-player multiplayer, and crisp visuals, it's understandable. Now Miniclip has released the sequel into the Play Store, which picks up right after the end of the first title. Read More
We're a week into the second Humble Mobile Bundle, and as to be expected, additional games have been added. The three new titles are Karateka Classic, QWOP, and God of Blades. Anyone who has already purchased the bundle will get the titles included without any extra effort. Those of you who haven't yet jumped in just have to pay over the average (which is currently under five dollars) to get your hands on all nine titles. Read More
If you picked up Fuhu's nabi XD tablet for tweens, then it's time to grab it and hit the update button. An OTA recently began rolling out that brings some intriguing new features to the device, including an all-new launcher.
The XD Launcher isn't a typical launcher, however – it's more of a complete overhaul to the way the XD works and feels. It actually slightly reminds me of Chameleon Launcher, as it has time- and location-aware options that will display certain homescreens based on specific attributes. Read More
Sprint just surprised everyone by being the first US carrier to roll out the Android 4.3 update to the HTC One, just missing the September deadline by a hair. But not everyone owns HTC's latest flagship, so it's nice to see that the One isn't the only device having all the fun (granted, it's having most of it). The HTC Evo 4G LTE is also getting an update today, and while it may not be anything nearly as exciting as the jump to Android 4.3, it's better than nothing. Read More
In the storied history of ugly phones, there are few that can stand up to the horrendous might of the Casio G’zOne Commando. This device may not be a looker, but it's rugged and now it has a spiffy new software update. Version C771M140 is available to download now for anyone still hauling the original Commando around.
The new software package makes a few changes to the functionality of the Commando, but it doesn't push it past Android 2.3. Read More
HTC said a while back that the Android 4.3 update would hit all US HTC One handsets by the end of September. That obviously didn't happen, but the company wasn't too far off in the case of Sprint. That version of the device is getting the update today.
Root Explorer is a solid file manager, but - surprise, surprise - it's even better for people who have rooted their phones. Back when Android 4.3 first arrived, many root enabled file managers suddenly had broken root support, but not Root Explorer. And since the functionality is already so solid, the latest update introduces a new feature some of us would consider superfluous. If you like Root Explorer, now you can make it prettier, look more integrated, or be as obnoxious as your eyes can handle without permanently rolling over backwards and staring into the darkness between your ears.

Yahoo seems to be taking a page out of the NFL's playbook: the official Android app just jumped from version 1.1.4 all the way to 3.2. (It's probably been changed to match the iOS version.) But at least there's plenty of new content to justify the jump. In addition to a new Holo-style user interface sporting the revamped Yahoo logo (which still clings annoyingly to that vestigial "!"), the app has a ton of new options for content consumption.

If you've been waiting for the newest and shiniest Samsung tech to get a bit of Magenta branding, wait no longer: the Galaxy Note 3 is now available from T-Mobile.com. The Galaxy Gear should be on sale, but at the time of writing the online store pages for the watch are returning errors. T-Mobile retail stores should be offering both devices starting today. The Galaxy Note 3 is $708 at full price, $199 plus a $21 monthly charge over 24 months, or $29.50 per month with zero down (if you qualify). Read More
