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.

Remember Acer's quad-core tablet that managed to beat out ASUS' Transformer Prime by a pretty wide price difference? It's available from Amazon for an easier-on-the-wallet $450 right now. If you're holding out for the silver version, you can still place a pre-order with Amazon here. In case you need a refresher, here are the specs:

  • 10.1-inch 1,280x800 display
  • Quad-Core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB built-in storage with microSD Card slot
  • 5MP Rear shooter, 1MP front-facing camera
  • 9,800mAh battery for 12 hours of continuous video playback
  • Android 4.0 with Acer Ring

The Olympics-branded tablet is an attractive choice for those who are looking for a budget tablet that doesn't strip away features that the bigger players share.

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.

With the DROID 4 now officially available, it was only a matter of minutes before Amazon Wireless and Wirefly unceremoniously beat Verizon's in-store and online pricing for the device.

wtf ama

Over at Amazon, they're currently offering the DROID 4 for $99 on a new 2-year agreement, and $149.99 for upgrades.

At Wirefly, you can get it for $149 on a new agreement, and at the same price for an upgrade.

Be sure to check out our Shadowgun Giveaway pack post, too - you could win an Galaxy Tab 8.9, a Jambox, and a $25 AMEX gift card!

Shadowgun is a game we've been following since its announcement for Android earlier this year. A couple weeks back, we received a preview build to test the game out (that link contains a gameplay video as well). Now, I've played the full version of the game and can report my findings more completely.

Wow, this just might be the best deal we've posted in a while. Unfortunately, we're not 100% certain on the price, because the images we were tipped to don't exactly specify one. Still, based on the $300 mark we've been hearing, and Droid-forums' claim that their source says that's the number, we're starting to feel pretty confident in that figure.

If you look on the left hand side of that image, in the red area, you can see the text "Accessories Bonus Pack / $159.97 Retail Value / Includes Standard Dock / Vehicle Navigator Dock / Battery Dock and / Extra Battery." That's a lot of kit to bundle with a phone for just $300 on a new 2-year agreement!

We already know virtually every detail about the upcoming Droid Bionic, and now Phone Arena has snagged a photo of a VZW internal document that basically verifies the last of the rumors: release date and price. We've been hearing rumors of a September 8th date for some time now, and one look at the image shows that pretty much hits the nail on the head. The phone will come in at a minimum advertised price of $299 with a two-year contract, which has quickly become the standard pricing for all of Big Red's 4G LTE phones.

Ruggedized - doesn't the word just conjur up images of a tiger eating a Toughbook?

When I received the J4M headphones from JLab, I was unsure of how "rugged" an in-ear headphone could actually be. So, I decided to treat them less than, shall we say, "gently" over the last few weeks.

Now, it's not like I've gone dunking them in water or buried them in sand at the beach - that kind of behavior is at your own risk.

The Logitech Revue, originally highly overpriced at $299.99, was recently reported to be going down in price heavily to a sweet spot of $99.99 that it should have shipped with in the first place in my opinion.

As of today, the price drop is in effect, so you can order the Revue for $99.99 with free 2-day shipping directly from Logitech by following this link.

Update: It's now up for the same price on Amazon and at Best Buy.

Just a few days ago Sony Ericsson confirmed an early off-contract August launch for the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc. And now, on the eve of August, the official Sony Ericsson Online store launched a page allowing customers to pre-order the Android 2.3 device for $599.99 with an expected shipping date of 2 August. It is also possible to obtain an 18-month extended warranty for an additional $99.99.

Alternatively, for a better deal head over to Newegg.com to pick up this phone at a much lower cost.
