The NOOK Color is probably one of the most popular Android tablets on the planet - and it's not even a full-fledged tablet out of the box. Regardless, it's quite easily hacked, and because of this, has been embraced by the Android modding community. In a world of dual-core processors and ten inch screens, it's no powerhouse, but for price and portability, you can't beat it. Here's a look at the hardware specifications:

  • 7 inch, 1024x600 display
  • 800MHz TI processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • 8GB built-in storage

It runs a custom version of Android 2.2 out-of-the-box, but can easily be modded to run custom firmware, like CyanogenMod 7, for example.

Long have board game geeks awaited the Android debut of the most popular and inventive board game since, arguably, Monopoly. The Settlers of Catan has finally arrived on the Market, but it comes with an admission cost - approximately $4.31. But, given the game's immense popularity worldwide, something tells me fans won't have a problem coughing up the bucks.

In the game, you'll find all the classic Catan gameplay, spruced up with sound effects, game statistics, interactive tutorials, and new scenarios - as well as a choice of which board art (US, German, or Classic) to use.

If you have investments or a retirement plan with Vanguard, then you'll be pleased to know that it released an Android app to the Market. The app allows you to access up-to-date info about your account, research investments, perform many types of transactions, and get the latest news from Vanguard and Reuters. If you find a story that you think may be of interest to friends and family, you can easily share it through email or social media.

Yesterday, Skype with video was officially released to the Android Market. There was one problem, though: it was only supported on a small number of seemingly random handsets, like the Nexus S (but not the Nexus S 4G), Desire S, Xperia neo, and Xperia pro. Thanks to the ingenuity of skilled Android modder 0mie, that's no longer the case.

With 0mie's modded version of Skype 2, video chat should be fully working on a number of recent phones, including the Thunderbolt (running Gingerbread), Sensation, EVO 3D, Galaxy S II, and Droid Charge.

A small update to the Google+ Android app, which is quickly becoming one of the top apps I use every day, was released a few minutes ago. The update mostly resolves login issues for those with multiple Gmail accounts (we've heard many of you complain about not being able to sign in because of that). Other additions include a new "spiffy" profile icon and UI polish.

Grab the update in the Market if you already have access to Plus, and if you don't, feel free to drop your name and email in this post.

Hey, Droid 2 owners! Remember in the not so distant past when the Droid X received a workaround that allowed it to get its own build of CyanogenMod 7? Yeah, you knew it was only a matter of time before Team Douche hooked you up, too - and now the wait is over.

CM7 nightlies for the Droid 2 have officially hit the CyanogenMod mirror network. It's worth noting that this is build is for the Droid 2 only, and it will not work on the Droid 2 Global.

Oh, Path... If you would've released your Android app a few short weeks ago, I'm certain that it would've done quite well. Alas, here we are - two days after the initial launch of my new favorite social networking site, Google+, and there's probably not much hope for you now.

For those that are unaware, Path is a social application that allows you to share photos and have conversations with your closest friends and family.

Every once in a while we get a humorous tip that is just too good to pass up. Check out what happens when you translate "Android 2.3.4" from German to English with Google Translate:

Whoops! It looks like you'll get the same result when you search for any version with 3 digits, from 2.2.1 to 2.3.4. Hit the link below to see it for yourself.

Thanks, Josh!

If you're into gaming on your Android, then there's a solid chance that you've at least heard of Zenonia. But, for those that are not familiar with the series, Zenonia is an incredibly popular RPG made for the small screen, slightly reminiscent of old-school Zelda games.

Today marks the landing of the third episode in this epic trilogy, offering new features along with the same familiar gameplay that fans of the series have gotten used to.

galaxy z

Among high-end Android phones, Samsung's Galaxy S II pretty much takes the cake. The combination of powerful specs, thinness, and Android 2.3 give it a very competitive edge. But not everybody needs all of that, which is why Samsung is launching the Galaxy Z on Three Sweden. Basically, the Galaxy Z is the same as the Galaxy S II but with slightly toned down specs. Even so, it still puts many other Android phones to shame:

  • 1 GHz dual-core processor (possibly Tegra 2)
  • 4.2" WVGA Super LCD display
  • Android 2.3 with TouchWiz 4.0
  • 8 GB internal memory
  • microSD card slot
  • 5 megapixel camera with LED flash

The phone is currently available for pre-order at the source link below for 3995 SEK, which comes out to around 630 US dollars.
