The folks from Trident Cases were nice enough to send me a review unit of their brand new Trident Cyclops for the HTC EVO 4G. I must say, after putting this case on and using for a few hours, there are several reasons that this is my new favorite case, and I'd like to do some show and tell.
My first impression of the Cyclops was actually a direct result of its packaging.
There's a lot that can be said for good, clean packaging, and this box delivers with some cool tech info and a QR code that takes you to a video of a Trident employee smacking around an iPad in one of their cases.

There are times when it pays to be an Android user, literally. Poker enthusiast website PokerTwitch received word that Full Tilt's Rush Poker will soon be coming to some lucky Froyo-running Android phones. This appears to be the first genuine real-money poker game for Android and trumps the offerings in Apple's strict App store whose policies do not permit gambling for real currency. There are online solutions available but none so convenient as a native application. Rush Poker is a new style of online play from Full Tilt and seems well-suited to the pick-up-and-play style of mobile gaming.
Select Black Card members of Full Tilt's poker site are receiving e-mails inviting them to participate in Rush Poker Mobile's beta launch if their device is one of the following:
- Acer Liquid Stream S110
- HTC Desire
- HTC Droid Incredible
- HTC Evo 4G
- HTC Google Nexus One
- HTC Desire HD
- Motorola Droid 2
- Motorola Droid Pro / Droid 2 World Edition
- Motorola Droid X
- T-Mobile G2
Poker has never been a hobby of mine, but the ability to have a quick go with my phone anywhere I am may just be the impetus I need to give this a shot.

Update: As several commenters have pointed out, Android does support some right-to-left languages like Arabic out of the box, it just doesn't do so correctly. The method described below does.
Surprising as it may be that Android, which is now a major player in the mobile operating system game, does not ship with support for any right-to-left languages such as Arabic, Persian, or Urdu, there's no denying it; languages were never one of Android's strengths.
Well, at long last, it appears our beloved operating system is getting support for at least one of those three languages (Arabic), but, surprisingly enough, Google was not involved.
