When you hear a song and don't know what it is, but want to find out, what do you do? Fire up Shazam or SoundHound, of course. But what do you do when you see a video that you're lookin' to identify? Well, there hasn't really been a solution on Android to handle this sort of debacle - until now, that is.

Calling itself the "ultimate video discovery" app, VideoSurf is a direct answer to the iPhone's IntoNow - it can identify videos through audio and video recognition, suggest other videos, and locate other videos using keywords.

Out of all the things that we use smartphones for these days, calls come in pretty close to last. We're too busy texting, taking pictures, surfing the web, getting directions... you get the idea. What if we could incorporate all of these things into our phone calls though? That's exactly what Thrutu aims to do, and the newest update to the app makes most of that possible. Here's a video to get a better idea:

Every feature isn't highlighted in the video, though - it can actually do even more than that.

In another step toward becoming one of the most dev-friendly Android manufacturers, HTC today launched HTCdev.com, a website "dedicated to providing you with the tools, advice, and community you need to pursue the possibilities."

The vast majority of the site's content has to do with the OpenSense SDK, which should be launching... sometime in the future (though you can sign up for emails about it now). HTC doesn't go into details about what it does, stating only that it will allow developers to write applications better integrated into Sense UI.

A slimster the Toshiba Thrive is not, but it's sure going to be more affordable than its competition when it goes on sale next month.

Toshiba executives Jeff Barney and Phil Osaka today confirmed that customers will be able to pre-order the dual-core Honeycomb tablet starting next week, though the parcel won't arrive until early July. The tablet, which we last saw at CES, will start at $429 for the 8GB version, while $479 will get you double the storage, and for $579, you'll be able to get your hands on the version with 32 gee-bees.

We've all heard of the dreaded smudge attack: when a not-so-do-gooder gets a hold of your device and cracks your lockscreen combination using the evident fingerprints on the screen. Of course, this can easily be prevented by simply wiping the screen after you unlock it, but not everyone remembers to do that. Now, though, thanks to an app called WhisperCore, you are basically required to wipe the screen before you can access your phone.

As promised, T-Mobile has just announced its newest Android handsets: the Samsung Exhibit 4G and the Samsung Gravity SMART.

The two new Samsung devices will bolster T-Mobile's Android coffers by providing an affordable option for penny-pinching smartphone lovers.

The Samsung Exhibit 4G is the higher-end of the two devices, running Android 2.3 and featuring a speedy 1GHz processor, a 3 MP rear camera with flash and a camcorder, as well as a front-facing camera with video chat pre-installed and, of course, HSPA+ ("4G") connectivity.

We've already told you that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 would be available for pre-order (or in your hands, if you happen to live in NYC) on June 8th , but we've just gotten word that pre-orders will begin on the same day for a 4G LTE version on Verizon (no word on an official release date, though - it just says "this summer"). The pricing is not so exciting, however: $529 for the 16GB version, and $629 for the 32GB version - with a two-year agreement, of course.

Well, looky at what Engadget got a hold of - a leaked internal document from Sprint's Reward Me site that just so happens to show a possible release date for the HTC EVO View 4G (the WiMax version of the HTC Flyer). Have a look:

As you can see, the View 4G should hit shelves in on June 24th (and no, that's not the price listed beside it Winking smile), which happens to be same date that the EVO 3D is rumored to be landing on the Now Network as well.
