The Sony SmartWatch 3 has occupied a spot in the Play Store since mid-October, where it has sat priced at $249.99 and marked as "coming soon." Soon means now, as the watch has gone live. You can still find it at the same link and for the same price, only now it's available for purchase.

This summer Telltale Games brought The Wolf Among Us to Android, a game based on the Fables comic book series from Bill Willingham and DC Comics. There was a catch--the game was only available via the Amazon Appstore.

There are big phones, and there are big phones. When the Galaxy Mega hit store shelves last year, it handedly qualified as a big phone.
