The internet is positively buzzing with news of a supposed leak of the T-Mobile Galaxy S III in both white and the still elusive pebble blue variety. Many sites seem convinced these are the real deal, and as much as I'd like to believe that, there are some issues that leave me feeling skeptical.

For all the past Samsung Galaxy phones, the US variants have moved to the more common row of four capacitive buttons.

Oh. My. God. Madfinger games - the same game dev firm that brought us Shadowgun - just announced a new game for Tegra 3 devices called Dead Trigger, and it looks amazing.

Awesome graphics? Check. First-person shooter action? Check. ZOMBIES? Check. This game has it all!

It has all the features that you would expect from Madfinger:

  • Stunning graphics with advanced lighting and post-process effects
  • Full 3D characters and environments with an unprecedented level of detail
  • High quality 3D audio and a lively music soundtrack
  • Character animations recorded using high-end motion capture
  • Intuitive controls
  • Spectacular ragdoll effects

Unfortunately, there's no word as to when the games is expected to release, only that it'll be hitting the Tegra Zone "soon."

And soon can't come soon enough.

Google announced today that it will be holding a special event on Wednesday, June 6th, regarding the future of Google Maps. Anyone who knows Google knows that these products are huge for the company, ranking right up there with Gmail and Android. More importantly, however, Google Maps is very important to Google's largest competitor: Apple. Which is why, when Google announces an event for one of its last major strongholds on iOS mere days before Apple's WWDC, we take notice.

If there are two things that go together like peas and carrots, it's fast cars and killing people. In a virtual world, that is. We don't condone the killing of actual people here at Android Police.

If these are two things that you just can't get enough of, though, then the upcoming remake of the 90's classic Carmageddon is sure to put a smile on your face. It certianly did mine.

Finally, after a bajillion years of waiting, the first Android tablet is finally getting its very own update to Android 4.0, finally. Finally. As some of you may recall, the WiFi model received an ICS update months ago, but the 3G/4G version, which has been plagued with problems since launch, including lack of advertised flash support and an actual 4G modem, is only just now set to get the OTA update.

Gameloft, creator of great Android games you feel like you've seen before, is at it again with N.O.V.A. 3, the third (obviously) in the sci-fi FPS shooter series that follows Master Chief Kal Wardin as he fights off the Covenant Volterite armada. The game's description touts an epic storyline and, frankly, we'd expect nothing less from Bungee Gameloft.

In all seriousness, despite the game's similarities to other major properties, Gameloft is well-known for making solid, enjoyable, if familiar, games.

We're hearing via The Verge that Judge William Alsup has just handed down his decision on the copyrightability of Oracle's 37 Java API's, asserted by Oracle as having been infringed by Google in the Android operating system. This is probably the most important issue of the entire case. While a jury decided that Google did infringe Oracle's APIs as asserted by Oracle, that decision hinged on the assumption that the APIs were in fact copyrightable in the way Oracle had insisted they were.

Gaming on Android has come a long way since the early days - we're even starting to see console-quality games show up for certain devices. However, there is one major shortcoming: touch controls, for the most part, are complete crap. They're a little more manageable on a device like a tablet, but they're downright unusable on a smartphone.

The solution? A controller. This is becoming a more and more widely adopted feature, thanks to things like the Zeemote.
