This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see How Many Apps Have You Purchased In The Last Month?

The first of Amazon's two new Android tablets has officially been revealed (the second one is rumored to be coming out towards the end of the year), and features a 7" 1024x600 display, 1GHz dual-core CPU, 8GB of storage, and a heavily modified Android experience with an emphasis on Amazon's cloud services - all for just $200.

OnLive officially launched an innovative cloud-based gaming service at the Eurogamer Expo in London yesterday, making on-demand gameplay available to users throughout the UK.

The new service supports a vast array of devices including HDTVs, PCs, Macs, and (soon) Android and iPad tablets connected to "almost any" broadband connection.

As a special promotion of the service, BT, one of the UK's most popular broadband providers, is offering its customers three months of free access.

No, it's not. At least not for Android - and that's what we're here to talk about today. The merits of Spotify as a music streaming subscription service for your desktop are substantially greater - it's well organized, searching and streaming are quick, powerful, and pretty. There's a lot to love - and at $10 (or free for ad-supported and no Android playback) a month for unlimited streaming, those plusses are hard to argue against.

Long have Subsonic users awaited the day the do-it-yourself music streaming platform would finally incorporate an equalizer in its Android app. Today is that day. Subsonic has been updated to version 3.0, and there's a slew of changes. For one, there's a brand-new widget. There's also a basic music visualization option, and the notification on the pull-down menu now shows album art. Take a look at some of the new features, below:

Subsonic, if you aren't familiar with it, is a music streaming platform that utilizes your home computer and personal music collection to provide a cloud-esque experience.

Online backup service Mozy pushed an update to its official Android app earlier today that brings features a lot of users have been waiting on. Namely, the addition of support for MozyPro customers and international availability. This update also bring support for six new languages, as well as the always important performance improvements.

That's right - if you're outside of North America and use Mozy, you can now access the service from your mobile...

Listening to tunes on your Android device is serious business - no doubt about it.

It's so serious that many of us are pretty well set in our ways for what we consider the "choice" Android music-listening application, and we aren't willing to budge on it.

PowerAMP users, for example, swear by the application's seemingly endless list of customizations and options. On the other hand, Subsonic devotees like myself are advocates of what is probably the most configurable music streaming experience in existence.

We've had leaked betas of Google's Music 3.0 app for Android for what seems like time eternal now, but Google has finally chosen to make the app public. At least part of it, that is. It sports the same interface as the beta we've all come to know (and love?), but lacks one key feature, mysteriously: a settings menu. That's probably owing to the fact that the previous betas we've seen all contained sync (Google Music) options in the settings menu, and unless you're a beta-invitee (don't worry, none of us have gotten ours yet, either), these options will presumably remain hidden and otherwise inaccessible.

The word on the web today is that Google is in negotiations with Spotify, the European answer to Grooveshark, to partner up on Google's upcoming music streaming project. CNET's source claims that during talks with major record labels, Google did a bit of name dropping and announced that they were hoping to work with the popular European music streaming service, although nobody from either Google or Spotify was available to comment on that rumor.

To answer the question, briefly: nobody really knows at this point. But I do think Google is going to have to make some sacrifices in the short term if the Music service is going to get off the ground. And that's because the record labels won't play ball - at least not by Google's rules according to All Things D, quoting two apparently well-connected sources.

Of course, the words of a couple anonymous music industry insiders aren't definitively representative of the feelings of all the (presumably numerous) parties involved in Google's Music negotiations.

Mozy, one of the most popular cloud backup solutions (I prefer and use CrashPlan myself), can now add the Android app to the list of features its users. Decho Corp, the company behind Mozy, announced Mozy for Android 2 weeks ago but only dropped the app into the Android Market about 2 hours ago.

While Mozy caught some heat and criticism for killing off unlimited backups a few months ago, those users who decided to stick with it will find the app quite useful:

  • you can browse all computers that are backed up under your Mozy account
  • your files are organized using the same original folder hierarchy you would expect
  • you can see photo thumbnails and quickly preview them without wasting too much bandwidth
  • you can download your backups to your Android device or email/share them out to friends and family

Mozy for Android won't blow anyone's mind - the inability to upload any data to it seems to me like the most glaring omission - but if you are a user of the service, it's nice to know this official version out there in case you ever need quick access to your files.
