Google-Music-Logo-200x200

Lending credence to theories that Google's November 16th event may have something to do with the debut of the Google Music Store, a writer at TecnoDroidVe has discovered (what appears to be) a work-in-progress version of the store, accessing it from his HTC Inspire 4G. While it's unclear how exactly Ricardo found his way into the Music Store, the screenshots he was able to recover look very promising.

While the Music Store isn't fully functional (you can't purchase or download songs yet), there is evidence that it will be awesome.

Rohan Shravan, CEO of Notion Ink, updated a blog post yesterday with a rather nonchalant statement revealing that the source code behind Ice Cream Sandwich may be released November 17th. Yes, you read correctly – this Thursday may be the day.

Normally a remark like this wouldn't be taken at face value, but Shravan already has a track record with this sort of thing, having accurately predicted the release of Android Gingerbread last year.

Combining physics-based gameplay with outer space action/strategy combat, Space Conquest challenges the player to "save the solar system from complete annihilation."

The game provides players with a wide array of unlockable ships, each with their own arsenal. The game also allows for completely customizable fleets, each battling enemies with relatively sophisticated AI, against a backdrop of large swaths of stars and other outer space scenery. In contrast with the detailed, beautiful starscapes in Space Conquest, the ships themselves are comprised of neon, polygonal outlines, giving the game a unique visual style.

Packt Publishing is back again with another new book, and to celebrate, we've teamed up for a giveaway. The book in question is Android 3.0 Animations: Beginners Guide, available now for $41 for a print copy or just $23 for the eBook (or $45 for both).

The Giveaway

Written by Alex Shaw and spanning 304 pages, the book is devoted entirely to what is (sadly) an oft-neglected aspect of Android development: creating and utilizing animations.

ZeroPC is this crazy service that lets you access all the popular cloud services from one place. "All the popular cloud services" is shorthand for Box.net, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, Flickr, Google Docs, Instagram, Picasa and SugarSync. Yeah, everything.

The website is insane. They've whipped up an in-browser operating system. Imagine a Linux-based OS in your browser. That's exactly what the website looks like.

However, this is an Android blog, so we should probably focus on the freshly-released Android Tablet (only) app.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For the last, see Is Gaming On Android Lackluster?

Put quite simply, we want to see many applications (including games) you have installed, other than those that came pre-installed on your device. An easy way to check: open up the Market and go to My Apps - though be sure to subtract any apps that came with your device, and don't forget to check all your accounts if you have more than one.
