Fancy a new 5" superphone? ZTE may have something to pique your interest - if you live in China. The company's latest high-end device, the Grand S, was unveiled yesterday prior to CES, and we got some hands-on time earlier today. It hits all the right points: 5" 1080p display, 13MP rear camera, 1.7GHz quad-core processor, Android 4.1, LTE connectivity, and is a fairly stunning 6.9mm in profile.

But, ZTE wasn't shy about discussing market availability: China.

I could probably count on one hand the amount of things at CES that are 1, new, and 2, run Android, so we are left with stuff like this.

This is an oven, an oven with an embedded 7-inch touch screen that runs Android. It's called the Dacor Discovery IQ Wall Oven. Here are some specs.

  • Samsung S5PV210 1GHz CPU
  • PowerVR SGX 540 GPU
  • 512 MB DDR2 RAM
  • 16 GB Storge
  • "Hard Drive Expansion: 32GB Max"
  • WiFi

The oven runs Android 4.0.3 (I can't believe I'm typing this) in tablet mode.

If you hadn't heard, Intel actually unveiled a new smartphone chip at CES. It's just not a particularly exciting one. Lexington, as its known, will be marketed primarily in emerging parts of the world - think Southeast Asia and Africa - in handsets that will probably closely mimic the reference design you see below in the hands-on video.

I'll admit - there's not a whole lot to this thing. It has a tiny 3.7" screen, isn't particularly thin (actually, it's pretty thick), and feels cheap.

We have some good news, and some bad news. First, the good news: Redbox Instant was just updated with support for the Nexus 10! Now you can stream movies to your heart's content on that big, beautiful display. Fantastic.

And the bad news: it still won't work if you're rooted. So, if you were rejoicing that you can finally use it on your N10, you can probably stop now if it's rooted.

We reported a few days ago that T-Mobile was rumored to be implementing an unlimited data option for its prepaid phone service. Well, now the carrier is confirming it. Starting on Wednesday January 9th, customers will be able to sign up for unlimited 4G HSPA+ data, voice, and text on prepaid for just $70 per-month.

This plan replaces the $70 unlimited talk/text plan with 5GB of 4G data. T-Mobile's data plans can be a little confusing because the carrier likes to still call them "unlimited" at times.

The middle class is disappearing. The national debt is big enough to fill Cowboys Stadium with hundred dollar bills. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo gets 2.5 million viewers an episode. The future of America looks bleak, folks - so let's celebrate it in point-and-click form. The Great Fusion is an old-school point-and-click adventure in the vein of Leisure Suit Larry, Monkey Island et al. It paints a worrisome picture of the year 2022, when the United States has collapsed and hope for the future is lost.

T-Mobile is the smallest national US carrier, and it was also the last to announce a cogent strategy for the deployment of 4G LTE. Yes, after years of insisting to no end that HSPA+ is 4G, the magenta carrier is rolling out LTE. As part of that move, new phones are going to be needed. The first device designed for T-Mobile's LTE is a revamped version of the popular Samsung Galaxy S III.

Oh, Chameleon launcher. There has been no shortage of you on Android Police. Yet here you are once again, resting comfortably in our spotlight.

I know, I know – many of you are tired of hearing about Chameleon. But this time it's different. Very different. You see, Teknision – the dev team behind Chameleon – is finally showing off the illusive phone launcher. A few weeks ago, they called out to the community for some alpha testers – 25 to be exact.

Break out the popcorn, folks, it's time for some corporate drama. As we reported last month, LTE service provider Clearwire is looking to sell itself, with 50% stake holder Sprint Nextel the obvious choice. But while Sprint's $2.2 billion offer (plus another $800 million in staggered investments) sits on the desks of both Clearwire shareholders and the Federal Trade Commission for approval, satellite TV provider Dish Network has made another offer.

Aren't you jealous that South Korea and Japan get all the cool over-the-air TV gadgets, while we in America are stuck in the stone age with things like "YouTube" and "Hulu"? Well, RCA's got you covered. The company's 8" mobile TV tablet - in TV-optimized 4:3 aspect ratio - is coming to the US in April for just $249, and does both over the air broadcast television as well as Dyle TV, which is also broadcast over the air and provides special content based on your location.
