To say the HTC EVO 3D has a lot to live up to would be a colossal understatement. Its predecessor, the EVO 4G, ushered in a whole new smartphone era - one replete with 4.3-inch, 4G-capable Android behemoths.
And at least on paper, the new EVO is a marked improvement over the original, packing a significantly crisper display, a processor with twice the cores, and of course the much-ballyhooed stereoscopic 3D capabilities. But early reviews have been anything but glowing, and the kickstand - one of the EVO 4G's most unique features - is nowhere to be found on this new version of the handset.

While Honeycomb already has a few good magazine readers, like Zinio for example, there isn't much in the area of newspaper readers. Enter PressReader for Honeycomb, a new app that brings over 1,800 different newspapers from 95 different countries to your Android tablet.
PressReader allows you to read your favorite newspaper in digital format while still retaining its printed appearance. You can set up automatic subscriptions, sort through publications by language and location, share articles, or even listen to your paper. While reading, you can flip through pages in a natural manner, pan and zoom, or tap on a headline to see the article in its text-only formatting for easy readability.

When the iPad first hit the market, it changed the way consumers looked at computing, mobile devices, and productivity. It provided an easy way to accomplish basic tasks, a convenient way to surf the web, and bridged the gap between laptop and smartphone. As the natural competitor to iOS, Android had to fire back with a device that was comparable in function: the Motorola XOOM, the world's first Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) tablet. The XOOM and most subsequent Honeycomb tablets have achieved both form and functionality that rivals - and in most cases, bests - that of the iPad/2, so why hasn't the Android tablet market exploded?

Update: This update is rolling out now, and is expected to hit all customers within four days.
If a leaked internal document obtained by SprintFeed is to be believed, then owners of the OG Galaxy Tab on Sprint should finally join the Gingerbread club on July 5th. This update will also bring added support for HD Bluetooth to the seven-inch tablet, on top of the added benefits and goodies of Gingerbread.
This timeline seems to be about right, as Samsung just released the source code for the Galaxy Tab SPH-P100 Gingerbread kernel. This means that, aside from receiving a much-needed bump up to Gingerbread, you should also see some custom kernel action popup shortly after.

Phones are quickly adding "personal trainer" to the list of roles they can perform for their users. The potential for note-taking, record keeping and stat tracking is immense, as there's a good chance you won't forget your device when you go out for a run or hit the gym.
Sports Tracker works by letting the app use your phone's GPS signal to determine distance and speed travelled while doing activities like cycling, running, swimming or rowing. The app also takes input like heart rate, allowing you to journal your progress across a number of days, further supported by the optional Bluetooth heart rate belt that's on sale from their website.
