Ready to hear some oh-so shocking news? Okay, here it comes - Facebook is the most launched app on Android. Well, if you want to get technical about it, Facebook isn't really the most launched app - it actually shows up in the list right behind the Android Market, but considering the Market is the gateway to all other apps (including Facebook, in most cases), it's pretty safe to omit it.

It's an early Monday morning, and while Google doesn't update the 10 Billion Apps promo page until 8-9am Pacific, some resourceful folks have already found all of the apps for today. The collection keeps going down in overall selection quality with each day, and we have a few repeats yet again, but we shouldn't look an [almost] gifted horse in the mouth.

Here are today's apps and games:

Microsoft recently released Halo Waypoint to the Android Market, bringing an official multiplayer companion to the palm of your hand. The app has a surprising amount of awesome features, including live overhead views of multiplayer maps (with weapon, vehicle, and player locations), score information, and the ability to "stay in contact with your Halo friends on Xbox LIVE no matter where you are."

On top of all that, Halo Waypoint tracks your career and campaign progress and stats according to weapons and enemies, and enables users to invite friends to challenges from their mobile device.

The final release date for the worst Android device launch in Verizon's history since the Thunderbolt and the Bionic is still unclear, but some Best Buy locations apparently didn't get the memo and started selling the Galaxy Nexus ahead of schedule. Some of those who were lucky enough to grab this holiday season's hottest LTE-enabled Ice Cream Sandwich gadget decided to let the photos do the talking, as folks tend to get pretty edgy when it comes to Galaxy Nexus news.

Looks like the new Email Developer feature that the web Android Market received on Friday was just the icing on the cake! While it was nice to finally have the ability to contact developers without having to go through the device Market, it was still a pretty minor addition. Don't fret - Google was nowhere near being done - you can now:

With a phone as highly anticipated as the Galaxy Nexus, it's understandable that people are (very, very) frustrated with the many rumored release dates passing with nothing to show and no official word, especially when stock of the phone is sitting in store rooms at retailers around the countries. Worse, many theories are that it's basically motivated by greed on the part of Verizon. No surprise, then, that even retailers are hopping on board the Verizon-sucks bandwagon:

Looking to rekindle some childhood nostalgia (and make a buck doing so), Mattel has release Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots to the Android Market. Rock 'Em Sock 'Em brings all the fun of the classic children's game to the palm of your hand, and adds a few twists. Unfortunately the game doesn't support true multiplayer just yet.

Adding some enhancements to the original button mashing game you know and love, Rock 'Em Sock 'Em includes a gym training feature (your robot can train and level up between fights), defense maneuvers, and health/energy meters, meaning you can't furiously tap the controls for very long before your robot gets tuckered out.

In a major "Surprise!" moment, Huawei has officially released what looks to be a demo build of Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) for the Honor (model number U8860). Details are incredibly light at the moment, since all we're really going on here is a product support page that's been Google Translated from Chinese to English and contains next to no information:

According to the poster at XDA, the posted update is actually just a "demo" (beta?) and not the final version.
