Ever wondered how much RAM is available on your phone? What about the internal storage space available? Or the precise signal strength? If you answered yes to any of these questions, System Info Widget may be the perfect widget for you and your inner geek.
What you're looking at above are the four widgets Jason Calhoun, the developer of the System Info Widget, gives you out of the gate. Of course, these can be customized in every which way, from the looks to the basic functions, so keep reading for a more in-depth look.

The number 1 Android app for rooted phones out there is undoubtedly Android WiFi Tether, which is a free alternative to all those carrier-bundled WiFi hotspot apps. In fact, it is the primary reason I root every Android phone I own - 2 hours of commute on the train suddenly become extremely productive because of always-on laptop connectivity. I've excitedly written about the app before, especially after it added support for Infrastructure mode and WPA2 on the EVO 4G.
However, after a few months of using the WiFi Tether app, I started experiencing occasional issues maintaining connectivity. The symptoms were:
- the WiFi AP (access point) would suddenly disappear from the list completely
- the connection would drop unexpectedly
- the AP would show up in the list but connectivity with it could not be established
Doesn't sound like fun, does it?

We'll keep this short and sweet - Android Police needs an official shirt design. However, none of us are of the artistic caliber necessary for such an endeavor (if you need any proof of that, check out the t-shirt I was sporting at Google I/O this year. Ironed on, baby!). This is where you, the super-talented-Photoshop/Illustrator-wizard, come in.
If we pick your design as the winning entry, you will get a brand new free black Samsung Intercept slider phone for Sprint valued at $499.99 (see our review of this phone here), shipped to your doorstep, courtesy of Samsung.
