Do you ever wonder if Samsung gets tired of releasing devices? While most manufacturers have vowed to release fewer superfluous phone and tablets, ol' Sammy is still going strong, offering up new Galaxy devices almost weekly. Maybe some people like the choice. Or maybe not. Either way, I don't see any signs of them slowing any time soon.
With more devices, of course, also comes more source code. Today's batch of piping hot source is for the Galaxy Express on AT&T and the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 on T-Mobile.
So, you want a Nexus 7. And you want it to have 32GB of storage. And you don't want to pay full price for it. Done, done, and done. For today only, you can get a 32GB Nexus 7 from eBay Daily Deal for a smokin' $229. That's $20 cheaper than in the Play Store. Not to mention the free shipping and no tax (for residents not in New Jersey, that is).
We've heard quite a bit about the upcoming ZTE Flash on Sprint over the last couple of weeks, but Best Buy just spilled all the details of the upcoming mid-ranger. According to previous leaks - which have now been confirmed by Best Buy - the Flash has a 4.5-inch 1280x720 display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, and Android 4.0. The handset's claim to fame, however, is its 12.6MP rear shooter - a first for a device in this class on Sprint.
If you've been aching to buy a new device on Sprint, today may be a good day to stroll through the doors of one of the carrier's retail shops to check out the new arrivals: the LG Optimus G, LG Mach, and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 LTE.
The Optimus G is, of course, the flagship of the bunch, sporting a 4.7" TrueHD IPS+ panel, 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB RAM, and Android 4.0.
On the Venn diagram of gaming genres, shooters and rhythm games rarely intersect, with the exception of some oddball titles like Space Channel 5. But with Beat Hazard Ultra, shooter fans and music junkies now have something that they can agree on. With success on iOS, Steam, Xbox, and PS3, developer Cold Beam has created a game with stunning visuals and an impressive tie to music that everyone will love - their own.
It would appear that the patent battle between HTC and Apple, which has been going on since early 2010, is finally closed, with the two companies agreeing to opt for a ten-year licensing agreement.
The dispute began over two years ago when Apple levied a complaint regarding twenty patents at HTC, claiming infringement. Of course after that the two slapped each other with disputeafterdispute, and the fight has boiled on ever since.
Have you been chomping at the bit to figure out when you'll actually be receiving that Nexus 4 or Nexus 10 from the Play Store that you're definitely going to buy? Well, here's your answer, straight from Google: orders will begin for both on the 13th, and those orders will start shipping the same day. No pre-orders will be taken. So, if you go for overnight shipping, you could theoretically have sweet Nexus goodness the very next day - November 14th.
Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth? It's a question that most audiophiles have answered resoundingly when it comes to wireless sound: Wi-Fi, of course. Uncompromised fidelity (from the original audio source), more stable connection, fewer interruptions, and did I mention fidelity? In the last year or two, though, we've basically seen Wi-Fi speakers pushed into a corner of the market, as a niche product, while ever more ubiquitous Bluetooth speaker systems have taken the lead.
Update: The promotional code has been taken down - probably because too many people tried to use it. Bummer.
Looking for a new phone that isn't a Nexus 4? Well, you may want to head over to Best Buy Mobile's eBay Store (ugh), because there's actually a pretty awesome promo code you can use to swing a great deal on an on-contract phone.
For any phone with a plan rate greater than $29.99, whether on a new account or as a contract renewal (upgrade), you can get 25% off the cost of the phone - just enter the promo code "EBSAVE25" at checkout.

More details on how to sign-up and participate will be announced on the blog soon.
