Update: Black Friday has arrived, and the deal is now live! Unfortunately, the tablet is in-store only, so take a look at this page and get going to your closest Best Buy retail location.

If it's the keyboard dock you're after, you can grab it online from here.

A leaked Black Friday ad for Best Buy has surfaced on BFads.net, and one particular deal stands out among the many to be had: an Asus Transformer 16GB (Wi-Fi) for just $250.

When we reported that Amazon was working on a number of Android devices earlier this year, shortly thereafter, reports began surfacing that the company would release two Android tablets before year's end, one 7", the other 10". The 7" device, now known as the Kindle Fire, is obviously for real.

But what about its supposed big brother? At this point, it seems almost imminent that it will be released. It also sounds very much like Amazon will unveil this bigger, better, Fiery-er device in time for Christmas in the US, and now we've got at least two reasons to think this is happening.

We already know the Samsung Galaxy S II (SGSII) is a huge success (even compared to the original SGS), but now sales of the uberphone have been kicked up even higher. In the last 8 weeks, sales have gone from 5 million to 10 million - or 625,000 units sold per week. And here's the real kicker: the press release expressly states "Model: GT-I9100," meaning these sales figures don't even include the United States.

Many of you have been asking how you could get your hands on those little Android guys that you can usually see hanging out in my reviews. Like these ones here:

I've personally acquired them over time - at Google I/O, the Lookout party, and Dead Zebra itself (no, you can't have mine!), but that's not the only way.

A good friend of ours, Omar Trujillo, also known as @0mie, partnered with us to promote his official vinyl figurines store where you can pick up authentic, Google-licensed, Dead Zebra-designed vinyl Android figurines and give them a new home.

After spending some reviewing the Dell Venue last week, I have a renewed interest in the world of all things combining Dell and Android. But, let's face it, Dell hasn't exactly had a great track record with its Android hardware, particularly its first attempt at a tablet - the universally-disliked Streak 7.

The Streak name, then, does evoke a bit of a grimace for most folks familiar with Android hardware.

The exciting conclusion of our three-part HTC-leak-o-rama comes in the form of a yet-to-be-announced HTC tablet known as the "Puccini." Sounds like an Italian dish (Note: actually, Puccini was a famous Italian composer, so take what you will from the codename). Anyway, this thing's packing, here's what we know:

  • WXGA display (800x1280) - we're thinking 9-10" on that basis
  • MSM8660 dual-core processor (same chipset we just saw in the leaked HTC Lead)
  • Android Honeycomb 3.0.1
  • AT&T LTE support

As an AT&T customer myself, between the HTC Lead and this guy, I'm pretty juiced.

If there is one thing I love buying, it's Android t-shirts (in fact, our own apparel store has close to 30 designs alone, most of which I own). The number of them in my closet goes well into double digits, and even though it is going to literally explode soon, I can't idly sit around and ignore the awesomeness that showed up at RIPT Apparel today - "Famous Androids."

The daily t-shirt deal shows a unique design every day, costs $10, and then goes away forever, unless the author lists it elsewhere.

In last weekend's (non-)poll, I asked for your three favorite Android apps. You did your part, and nearly 100 people took the opportunity to vote. Now it's my turn, so I've compiled the results and I'll list them below along with details and a brief description of each app.

The Results

1. Launcher Pro (+ Plus) - 20 Votes

Given just how not-so-attractive Android 2.2 and below is, it's not really surprising that a launcher should take the top spot.
