We've talked quite a bit about Fuhu's Nabi 2 tablet, which was designed specifically for children. Given its $200 price tag and powerful Tegra 3 processor, 1GB RAM, and Android 4.0, this device is not only great for the kids, but it packs a punch for parents, as well. (To get a better idea of everything the Nabi has to offer, check out my full review.)
The one downside of the Nabi 2, however, is its lack of Google Apps.
The rumor mill is going strong with Nexus hearsay now, and Android & Me is currently leading the pack with details about the upcoming version of Android and at least one of the devices that will run it.

With another week comes another entry in our new "What We Use" series. This time it's my turn.

Here's a rundown of the hardware, software, and miscellaneous whatnots that help me do what I do.

T-Mobile is acquiring MetroPCS, but really, MetroPCS is acquiring T-Mobile, and Deutsche Telekom will be the majority shareholder, but it'll still be called T-Mobile, and the networks will be operated separately, but also together.
Hey Note owners - ready for CyanogenMod 10 on your device? Good, because the first nightly builds for both the 3G and Wi-Fi versions hit get.cm just a bit ago. Both are labeled as "experimental," so if you're looking for something super-stable, this isn't the ROM for you. If, however, you like to live on the edge and/or have been waiting for some CyanogenMod action, head to the appropriate link below and give it a flash.
Last week, we gave you a glimpse into what David uses: his favorite gadgets, accessories, apps, and all the other tech junk that he doesn't go a day without. Now it's my turn. With this series, you'll see how different each member of the AP team is when it comes to how we use our gear, which is one of the best things about Android: it's versatile.
