ASUS Transformer Pad 300 32GB Shows Up For Pre-Order On Amazon For $399, Will Be Available On April 22

Info about the Transformer Pad 300's availability has been slowly showing up more and more often over the past few weeks. Now, thanks to Amazon, we have all of the last bits of information that we needed about this powerhouse-in-a-plastic-body device, including price and release date.

2012-04-17 14h13_07

As you can see, the TP300 will be available on April 22, along with a whole slew of other Android devices (Galaxy Tab 2 7, Sprint Galaxy Nexus, LG Viper, and LG Optimus Elite). And for $400, this thing packs a punch:

  • 10.1-inch 1280x800 IPS display
  • 1.2Ghz quad-core Tegra 3 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB built-in storage
  • Plastic chassis
  • Android 4.0

Looks like Amazon thinks that the 300 should have 2GB of RAM, but rest assured, that's just a typo.

[Updated] Video: T-Mobile Launches First Brand Re-Launch Effort With Carly's "Alter Ego" Commercial

After the infamous attempted AT&T acquisition of T-Mobile (also known as the biggest failure in telecom in 2011), the latter has apparently been working on restoring its image in the eyes of consumers with a complete brand re-launch, due this fall. The first step - a new Carly. We know the old Carly in a magenta dress showing off her long legs, but the new Carly is going to turn into this bad-ass Ducati rider. Alter ego and all that jazz. Here, check it out:

I think the new direction is great - Carly in leather biker gear zooming down the streets of Magenta Town has "speed" written all over it (if you can call HSPA+ "speed" nowadays).

Sprint And LG Announce The Optimus 'Elite' For April 22, The Phone That Is Anything But

Do you remember the small anticlimactic device dubbed the LG Optimus Elite that we told you about a few weeks ago? Well, Sprint and LG just made this little guy official. Here's a look at the official spec sheet:

  • 3.5-inch display
  • 800Mhz processor
  • 5MP rear shooter
  • NFC
  • Android 2.3

320144_4 320145_4

This thing may have been "Elite" two years ago.

With specs like that, you probably expect this device to be free, eh? Bad news - it's not. In fact, it's $80. Granted, you get $50 of that back by way of mail-in-rebate (making the device $30), you still have to fork over $80 (plus tax) if you want to pick this phone up.

Read It Later Becomes 'Pocket' - Offers A New Interface And Features, Loses Price Tag

When you want to totally reinvent yourself, a new look is definitely a good place to start. If you really want to say "hey, this is a new me!" then a name change can convey that message pretty well. I guess Read It Later wasn't happy with where it was in the hard knock life of an app in the Google Play Store, because it recently went under the knife to get a totally new interface, new features, as well as a new name.

1 2 3

What emerged this morning is the all new Read It Later, now called Pocket. Pocket offers everything that you've come to expect from Read It Later, along with new content filters, improved organization features, faster sync, and, of course, an all new interface.

[Review] The Zeemote Is A Fun Little Controller, But It Needs More Games, Maybe A Slightly Lower Pricepoint

By now, you should've heard about the Zeemote Bluetooth Gaming Controller. We only gave away a thousand of them a couple weeks ago, after all. We've started to receive ours here at the Android Police Station, so we thought it was an appropriate time to take a look at the device (as well as provide you with some games to cut your teeth on).

The Hardware

2012-04-16 17h07_00

It would not be wrong to make a comparison to the Wii nunchuk attachment. The Zeemote is almost functionally identical. Held in one hand, the device has two small trigger buttons next to the index finger, an analog control stick for the thumb, and a recessed trigger button by the middle finger.

[New App] Music Is Math Now: SnapNPlay Lets You Play Back Sheet Music By Taking A Picture Of The Notes

How's this for amazing? You see a piece of sheet music, but you can't read it because you're a plebian, or perhaps you can read it but you want to hear it. SnapNPlay is an app that lets you take a picture of a line of sheet music and then plays back the notes on the page. This is amazing.

The app itself looks a little rough around the edges right now, but the concept is wonderful. The world of the future has already brought us some amazing things, but this app helps highlight something romantic about the nature of creative thought.
