A guest post by Eric Chu just went live over at the Android Developers blog, officially announcing the expansion of the Android market to 20 new countries. While we can't exactly say we didn't see this coming (and have an idea what countries it was coming to), it's nice to see nonetheless. It looks like Distimo's estimation was pretty dead-on, too: 11 of the 13 countries they listed are confirmed by Mr.

The wait is over, folks! The buy one get one free deal for the Samsung Fascinate has just gone live on Verizon's website. We know you've been holding out for it and it doesn't get any better than paying for one and being handed two. It's time for you to replace your old crappy phone with two Super AMOLED Android powerhouses. Get on it!

Today, T-Mobile announced that the Motorola Charm is now available, and the pricing options out there in the wild are a bit confusing to say the least.

Wirefly currently has the best deal - you can get the Charm for $0 on a new T-Mobile 2-year contract priced at $59.99 a month. But, if you're a current T-Mobile customer, unless you plan on terminating your current contract, you'll have to fork over $50 and renew your agreement.

To obtain the beta, you must have a TweetDeck account (or create one), sign up here. The instructions for downloading and installing TweetDeck for Android, below (You still need to be signed up for the Beta Preview for the app to work):

Hi there!

UPDATE 3: We’ve been informed that in an interview earlier today, spokesman Matt Parretta claimed that the capture from the Dell website below was a mistake. Parretta also says he knew nothing about the page’s statement that the phone would be available in late July, saying “I’ve never said that.” (I guess I’ll take him at his word).

Shame on Dell for putting us through all this!

UPDATE 2: It seems those who made it on the Dell Streak pre-order list can expect an e-mail some time today with a link to purchase their new phone.

Samsung Vibrant - the Galaxy S series representative on T-Mobile - is going live today, July 15th, and T-Mo already made it available in their online store for $250-$50 rebate.

A few days ago, we also pointed out that the phone is also available from Wirefly for $50 cheaper than T-Mo - $149.99.

Well, it looks like today Amazon.com followed suit and is now offering the Vibrant at the same cool $149.99 delivered for free in 2 days.

Manufacturers take note: this is how it’s done. A mere two weeks after the Vibrant was announced, this Samsung’s Galaxy S variant for T-Mobile is now up available for order at T-Mobile’s online store.

The Vibrant is currently listed at a $499.99 off-contract price, or $249.99 plus a $50 mail-in rebate with a 2-year contract.

Better Deal From Wirefly

There is a better deal available though, which we posted about a few days ago: if you order from Wirefly, which offers free shipping and free returns, you will not have to deal with annoying rebates and will in addition save another $50.

The moment you've been waiting for is here - Droid X order page just went live at VZW's site.

You can pick up this bad boy for $199... that is, of course, if you are OK with potentially eating a $350 termination fee and never seeing your device rooted or running a custom ROM.

If, however, you don't care about rooting or custom ROMs, then pop open that browser and spill the cashish, because Motorola's new Droid X is a beast.

PSA: HTC Droid Incredible Now In Stock At Amazon.com

If you've been trying to get your hands on the HTC Droid Incredible ever since it launched and you didn't reserve one in a preorder, you may have had some trouble finding one in stock. In fact, even some later preorders have not been filled yet.

The phone is still sold out everywhere, including VZW, with ship dates going as far as August:

PSA: HTC Droid Incredible For Verizon Now In Stock At Amazon.com, Ships In 24 Hours

The situation with the Droid Incredible, caused by shortages of AMOLED screens, got so bad that Verizon actually allowed customers to switch their preorders to Droid X instead.
