If you're still looking to get your hands on a Sprint-branded Galaxy Nexus, Amazon has a deal for you – Amazon Wireless is offering the Galaxy Nexus right now for $49.99 if you open a new account. This is a great discount, cutting a full $100 off the last deal we saw.

It's worth noting that customers looking to activate a new line or upgrade an existing line can expect to pay $99.99 or $149.99 respectively for the Now Network's debut LTE device.

Sprint customers now have one more self-service option when managing their account online. A couple of days earlier than its official launch, the carrier has begun allowing users to change their phone number online, thereby avoiding the $15 fee charged when switching numbers via phone or in-store.

Inside Sprint Now indicates that while this feature is being labeled a "benefit," it may actually be a cost-cutting maneuver, executed in an attempt to reduce the number of calls to customer care, thereby saving some money.

Over a year ago, Adult Swim released their first Android game, Robot Unicorn Attack. Now they're back with another ridiculous(ly awesome?) game called Monsters Ate My Condo. Unfortunately there's no video footage of the gameplay, but I think the Play Store banner probably sums it up well:

The core gameplay is simple and nothing especially new: swipe the floors around to match the colors. It's the premise that kicks things up a notch:

Adult Swim Games and PikPok present all-new monster puzzle action!!

EA has a tried-and-true formula for the Need For Speed (NFS) series: fast cars, good graphics, a cheesy story, and some good old arcade-style racing. Thus it's no surprise that the latest NFS title, Most Wanted (a follow up to the 2008 original) features just that - and as always, it looks like a properly good time:

The game will be coming to all the major platforms - Xbox 360, PS3, Vita, PC, iOS, and Android - so it's unclear how much the press release and trailer pertain to Android.

Once in a while Amazon throws a sale we can't miss, and today's SanDisk memory blowout as part of the Gold Box deals is a perfect example of just that.

We have fast SanDisk MicroSD "Ultra" cards ranging from 16GB ($18.99) to 64GB ($59.99) at lowest prices ever for these cards according to all the price checks I've run. The 32GB MicroSD is in the sweet spot of $27.99. Remember, these are not Class 2 or Class 4 - they're high quality Class 6 and Class 10 cards rated for 30MB/s transfer speeds and Full HD video recording.

In an e-mail to its customers today, the team at TekTrak (an app we reviewed back in August) officially announced that the service has shut down and that users will no longer be able to utilize its features. In the heartfelt message the team explains that, as with many startup ventures, it has come time for the service to shutter its windows and call it quits.

TekTrak's official website has also been updated to reflect the end of the service.

Facebook already knows quite a lot about you and your friends, so why not use all that data to help find the best apps? This is exactly what Facebook is looking to do with its new App Center. Don't fret, though. This isn't yet another place for developers to upload and manage their apps. This is more of an online catalog infused with social smarts.

Facebook says the service will launch right now with over 500 apps, but didn't specify what the split would be between iOS and Android.

Welcome to the very first live episode of the Android Police Podcast. We apologize in advance for any technical snafus, random outbursts related thereto, and bad puns. We're not actually sorry about the last one.

While after a discussion we at Android Police were unable to determine exactly why Evernote couldn't implement the functionality of its newest Android app, Food, into the existing Evernote app, we were able to settle on one thing: people take too many pictures of the things they eat. Evernote Food wants you to do this more, though, and has a veritable cornucopia of tools at your disposal to make you the ultimate delicacy documentarian.

Splashtop makes some great remote desktop software. I like Splashtop. So please friends, readers, and developers over at Splashtop, keep in mind my love for the company as a whole when I say the following sentence: Charging users $25 to try out Windows 8 on an Android tablet is an absurd, opportunistic, rip off of an idea. Most disappointingly, it will work for a small minority of users. And their money spends just the same as any other.
