[Updated: Now With EVO View 4G Trademark Filing] Sprint's Own Website All But Confirms The Rumored Nexus S 4G, EVO 3D, And EVO View Devices

Sprint has been mum about its 2011 lineup throughout this whole year until yesterday, when we finally got a break and caught wind of not 1 but 3 upcoming Sprint Android devices - the Nexus S 4G, the EVO 3D, and the EVO View tablet. The rumors were dropped to both Engadget and AndroidAndMe by an anonymous tipster, but both sites seemed confident in their sources, meaning it wasn't the first time the same credible tipster provided reliable information.

Cyanogen has just announced via the CM blog that CyanogenMod 7 Release Candidate 2 is rolling out now for supported devices.

Goodbye, Voice Minutes? First Signs Of Google Voice VoIP Emerge

We may have just seen the reasoning behind Google's announcement last week that they were shutting down VoIP service Gizmo5. Apparently a SIP address has surfaced that allows those with an SIP-to-SIP account (such as sip2sip.info) to call Google Voice users for free. While this may not sound Earth-shattering at first, this is most likely an early sign that true Google Voice VoIP (that many users have been eagerly anticipating) is on its way.

In a very interesting find, Google's yet-to-be-announced cloud music streaming service actually seems to be active and working on certain users' Android phones. Only rooted phones that have a hacked version of the Honeycomb music player installed are able to access the service.

Xda member WhiteWidows stumbled upon this after installing the hacked app, accepting permissions, and letting his EVO sync overnight. He removed his SD card and - lo and behold - his music still played without having the necessary files present on his phone.

Does HTC Lack Confidence In The Flyer? Only 1 Million Reported To Ship By August

In what could be construed as a white flag being waved before even marching into battle, a new report is saying that HTC will only ship one million of their upcoming Flyer tablets between its launch (which is still unknown) and August. The news comes from a Chinese language newspaper, which also reported that the new slate would set buyers back $600.

The 7" tablet, which will march to the beat of its own drum (with a stylus and Android 2.3 with Sense overlay), has been met with largely ho-hum anticipation compared to larger, Honeycomb-running tabs like the XOOM, G-Slate, and Galaxy Tab 10.1.

The Android-Controlled Shirt: Yes, I'm Serious - Complete With Flaming Skulls

Can you tell news is a little slow in the world of Android this morning? Either way, this is absolutely, 100%, ridiculously awesome (not that I would ever, ever wear it):

The shirt works via Bluetooth connection with an Android device and a custom app that utilizes the accelerometer in your phone to light the skull eyes up based on your movement from side to side. I think, had he worn it, this could have made up for Nicolas Cage's performance in Ghost Rider.
