Similar in style to the crowd-favorite Humble Bundle, the Indie Gala is coming back for a second round. The collection includes three games that you can unlock for whatever price you'd like (minimum donations have been set at a dollar to ward off jerks and shady people). The three basic games are The Lost Souls, Battle Group, and Ichi. Pay more than $3.99 and you also get access to Xelorians, Call of Cthulhu: Wasted Land, and Little Stars For Little Wars 2.
With the introduction of the Nexus Q and Nexus 7 devices at Google I/O yesterday, one (big) question remains – how will the market react to these products?
The Nexus Q, a social media streaming device is undoubtedly a cool gadget – it allows you and your friends to stream content in your living room by interacting with one centralized device – the Q makes putting your Play Store content on your TV or external speakers an absolute breeze.
Update: We've heard from Samsung that this page was put up by Amazon by mistake (aka, it was set to auto-publish), and has since been taken down. If you submitted an order, it'll likely be refunded in a short time, if it hasn't already. We can still take something from this, though - the Note 10.1 is coming soon (probably next month), and it'll likely be $550 for the 32GB version.
Alongside Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile, Sprint has announced that it, too, will be carrying the next Galaxy in just a few short weeks. As far as we can tell, the device will be unbranded aside from the standard Sprint logos, but we've yet to confirm this (Sprint has not provided images).
Yesterday, we'd heard from Samsung that the device would be coming to five carriers in the US, and with Sprint's announcement, we're now up to all five.
Alongside Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile, regional carrier US Cellular has made official that it will be carrying Samsung's Galaxy S III, with pre-orders beginning on June 12th. Pricing has yet to be announced, but as a regional carrier, US Cellular often has slightly higher premiums than its national counterparts, so potentially expect something above the standard $199 price-tag for the 16GB model.
As with all the announced US Galaxy S III devices, it is packing a Snapdragon S4, rather than a quad-core Exynos processor, which means full LTE support.
Because We May has been making all sorts of headlines recently. The group of game developers - delighted by the ability to freely price games on Google Play, the iOS App Store, Steam, and similar venues for entertainment - made waves in the tech blogosphere by slashing the prices of myriad games in half (or more).
Initially, the selection included 57 different Android games - an impressive feat, no doubt. But what could be better?
Update 5/2/12: The deal, which was extremely popular last time around, is back for another 24 hours. Here's the updated link.
If you've been waiting to pick up a cheap Android tablet, but the $200 price tag on the new Kindle Fire seemed a little steep, you're going to love today's main Amazon Gold Box deal. For one day only (or rather about 21 hours as of this writing), the Kindle Fire can be had for only $139 ($60 off) with free shipping (in fact, it's eligible for Prime).
No, Republic Wireless hasn't merged with Google as per the Internet's dreams, but it has begun issuing invites to its upcoming beta service.
Indeed, those who signed up for the service a few months back should soon be assigned a "wave" of the beta. Following this assignment, the lucky few will be secured a spot on Republic's waiting list, and the waves will start opening up this summer.
But the real news here is the smartphone pricing that's been sent out to beta customers.
Just as HTC announced its new One line of Android-powered smartphones, Clove, in an HTC One blog takeover, announced that pre-orders are now open for all three devices. Clove also divulged each device's price, full specs, and expected release date.
HTC One X
The HTC One X, perhaps the most impressive of the new line, is slated for release on April 5th, carrying a price tag of £410.00 (or about $645) not including VAT.
