[PSA] Sprint Promotion: Renew Your Contract And Get Credit For A Free Month Of Service

While we're on the subject of why Sprint is the carrier to go with nowadays ($50 contract extension credit "just because," unlimited data without expensive and complicated tiers **cough Verizon cough**, great customer service, etc.), I wanted to throw yet another reason for existing Sprint customers to stick around.

Side-by-side with the $50 credit promo that I mentioned above, it turns out that the company is running a different deal in parallel that pays you for a month of free service right back to your account upon contract renewal for 2 more years. It does not affect your phone upgrade eligibility at all and is a very effective retention tool, so you can ask for it now, even if your contract still hasn't expired, get the contract renewed, then grab a new phone later).

It's time to announce the winners of the 3rd giveaway, selected by the joint AP/O'Reilly panel, who will receive a brand new copy of Developing Android Applications with Flex 4.5.

Again, the question was:

Tell everyone why they should use Flex for developing Android apps as opposed to the conventional approach.

Here are the winners and their comments:

Vishal:

I don't expect to win but I'm new to mobile development and would like to make Android the first platform that I develop for.

[Update: Live Now!] Visually Stunning Tower Defense Game 'Fieldrunners HD' Coming To Android Tomorrow... For Free

Ultra-popular iOS game Fieldrunners HD is finally making its way to Android as of tomorrow. The best part? It will be free in the Amazon Appstore for the first 24 hours - after that, the price will jump to $2.99. If you don't have access to the Amazon Appstore, fret not, as it will also be in the Android Market for the discounted price of $0.99 for the first 24 hours (it can't be free in the Android Market because once an app is listed as free, it remains such for the rest of its lifecycle).

Update 7/7/11: Like clockwork, both the Amazon link (free for today) and the Android Market link ($0.99 for today - use the widget towards the bottom of the page) are now up!

[Live Wallpaper] Gravity Home: Where Launcher Meets Wallpaper

If you've been looking for a live wallpaper that offers up a bit of functionality and nice physics, then Gravity Home may fit the bill perfectly. It's a live wallpaper / launcher hybrid, and unlike some of the competitors in the Market, it's actually useable.

The concept behind Gravity Home is simple: instead of having static icons on your homescreens, why not have icons that dynamically move around as your device moves? While this may sound slightly annoying, the icons actually "float" around the homescreen, so the movement is very slow and fluid, making it easy to tap the one that you want while it's still moving around.

[Ultimate Deal Alert] Amazon Wireless Now Selling Motorola ATRIX 4G For Just One Cent

A few days back, we listed Motorola's cutting-edge ATRIX 4G as one of the best five Android phones for budget-conscious consumers. At the time, it was just $30 at Amazon Wireless - a very good deal for a dual-core smartphone capable of turning into a laptop (though said laptop is expensive and somewhat limited in terms of functionality).

2011-06-23 17h11_21

Today, Amazon Wireless has slashed the ATRIX's price further still: it's now just $0.01 on a new two-year contract. Free two-day shipping is included as well, and better yet, Amazon will email you a promotional code good for $100 off the ATRIX's laptop dock.
