Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Coming To Sprint On June 24th... But It's Wi-Fi Only

Even though Sprint has yet to get a Honeycomb tablet that actually runs on its network, that hasn't stopped it from at least trying to sell some new-tablet-tech. Just like with the Motorola XOOM, the Now Network has opted to get the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 void of any 3/4G connectivity, and instead will be offering the Wi-Fi only version.

The 10.1 inch, 16GB, Tegra 2-packing Tab will hit Sprint's online store on June 24th for $500, and arrive in retail stores exactly one month later for the same price.

[Rumor] Verizon Implementing Tiered Data Plans On July 7th, And They're Not Pretty

Most users accustomed to unlimited data cringe upon hearing the words "tiered data plans" - but they aren't always bad. As our own David Ruddock pointed out, they don't affect most users - and they might even be cheaper for non-data hogs (aka 97% of customers).

However, in the case of the new tiered data plans Verizon Wireless is rumored to be implementing early next month, there's not much of an argument - they don't add any value whatsoever for VZW subscribers, and their sole raison d'être seems to be raping subscribers' wallets further still.

Official Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) Build Leaked For Samsung Fascinate, Now Available For Download And Install

P3Droid of MyDroidWorld has scored an early (debug) Gingerbread build for the Samsung Fascinate, and it's apparently quite polished. So far P3 and Justin (of AndIRC) are the only two to have laid hands on the build, but the issues they have found are that Tetris force closes, Google Maps isn't pre-installed, and some market apps don't show. Otherwise, they say it's a very solid build. P3 has provided a quick (37 second) video preview:

Justin was also kind enough to snap a few quick photos:

The 5 Best Android Phones Under $50 - And Preferably Free: June 2011

We've all seen "roundup" lists of smartphones before: who's got the best display, who has the quickest processor, the newest OS revision, the biggest battery - but let's face facts: that kind of stuff is for nerds (like all of us here at AP - and most of our wonderful readers). So we're going to try out something new - call it a pilot episode, if you will.

When you're attempting to convince the less geeky folks you know that they should pick up an Android phone, it can be a tough sell.

Gingerbread Update For DROID 2 Global Not Rolling Out Just Yet, Says Motorola

HTC EVO 3D Review Roundup: One Man's Trash Is Another Man's Treasure

HTC and Sprint's EVO 3D, the first three-dimensional handset in the US, won't be available in stores for eight more days - but the early reviews have already started flooding in. And I'll tell you this: they're pretty mixed. Some reviewers, such as LaptopMag's Mark Spoonauer, wholeheartedly enjoyed the device, even going so far as to give it an Editors' Choice award. Others, however, weren't nearly as fond of the phone - Gizmodo, upfront as always, called it "only suitable for shooting yourself in the face." Ouch.

T-Mobile Just Released A Pretty Cool Daily Deal App, "More For Me" - Though We're Not Sure Why, Exactly

Update: Don't install this app until it gets an update - it will turn your GPS on every 10 seconds to update your location info, and won't stop unless you Force Stop it from the Manage Applications screen. It was at 68% on my phone's battery usage menu after 6 hours of doing little with my phone aside from checking e-mail sporadically. Yuck.

Have you ever wanted an app that aggregates your favorite daily deal and special offer services into a single, location-based list?
