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.

Looking to make online shopping just a little more organized and manageable, Slice came to Google's Play Store today. The app promises to be "the simplest way to track and organize your purchases," and seems to deliver on that promise, efficiently and effectively finding, organizing, and storing receipts and tracking info on your Android device.

Slice automatically works with your Gmail or Yahoo Mail account, scanning for purchase receipts and tracking info, and organizes everything into a clean, easy-to-use interface.

FedEx recently released an official app for Android, bringing all the power of the shipping giant's online features to your mobile device.

ss-480-0-0 ss-480-1-0 ss-480-2-0

To be a bit more specific, the app allows users to create shipping labels, access their FedEx address book, get rate quotes, receive shipping notifications, find FedEx locations, and provide mobile feedback to FedEx. Users can even nickname shipments and add notes, essentially covering all the bases when it comes to creating and managing shipments.

Looks like Verizon isn't waiting until May 25th to ship the Xperia Play - at least a few customers have received confirmation that their phones have already been mailed.

We first caught wind of this yesterday, when @0mie tweeted:

all #Revolution #Play orders SHOULD start shipping Thursday night/Friday Morning :)

Today, one Droid Life reader confirmed the essiting info with the following screenshot:

Of course, it's possible - likely, even - that not all pre-ordered Xperia Plays have been shipped yet.

Like clockwork, the thumb-hungry Xperia Play from Sony Ericsson went up on VZW's site, ready for some early pre-order action. It will set you back $199.99 on a 2-year contract and should ship out May 25th to be in your hands by May 26th, all for free.

This Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" phone features a 4" screen, slide-out PlayStation-style controls, a 1GHz single-core Snapdragon processor with Adreno 205 GPU, a 5MP rear and VGA front camera, and comes with a bunch of games pre-installed: Madden NFL 11, Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, The Sims 3, Star Battalion, Crash Bandicoot, and Tetris.

There's not a whole lot of specificity that comes with this information, but at the same time it seems pretty likely that HTC isn't putting all of its tablet eggs into the Flyer and EVO View 4G basket. DigiTimes is reporting that HTC is planning to release two Honeycomb tablets bearing the Flyer moniker later this summer, both with larger displays than the incoming Gingerbread version.

This doesn't come as much of a surprise, as the Galaxy Tab and other small, non-Honeycomb tablets have demonstrated that consumers want a device with a bigger screen and a proper tablet operating system.

Update: Shortly after the update botch was noticed by Notion Ink, they halted distribution of the update in question because it was not downloading completely. If you have a bricked Adam, here is the fix as e-mailed to Notion Ink Fan:

No one here at Android Police has a device to test this fix on - so be careful, and read the warning.

How to flash your Adam and get it working again

Great news for those who have pre-ordered Notion Ink's first tablet, the Adam: they're starting to ship. Notion Ink has apparently just received their first large shipment, and posted their own unboxing and hands-on photos, while some pre-order customers now have tracking numbers in their hot little hands. Very exciting, no?

First up are the shipping details, courtesy of Adam fanblog AdamLogs. Looks like the person behind the blog has found that there's now a link to "Check Pre-Order Status" on the Notion Ink website.
