Whoosh - looks like we can take the report of upgrades to the already impressive Galaxy S II and the upcoming Tab 8.9 from the rumor bucket and place it carefully on top of the confirmed stack. In fact, the rumor was not only spot-on regarding everything Samsung just officially announced, it even had more information that Samsung didn't cover, which means some details will keep the rumor tag until we find out more.

Scottrade, a popular brokerage firm, just introduced the official Android app that lets its customers trade stocks using their mobile devices.

The Droid Bionic. You've heard the name for about three-quarters of the year now, and the hype surrounding the world's first dual-core Droid has seen its fair share of ups and downs. Last week we found out that the device would finally be hitting the streets in September -- too little too late, if you ask me.
