There's no shortage of antivirus, antimalware, or other forms of anti-bad stuff apps in the Market. In fact, we've look taken at a ton of them. If none of those could handle your list of wants from a mobile security app, have a look a Comodo Mobile Security - it brings a few useful features all together into a single app.

Like you would expect from Comodo, it's first and foremost an antivirus/antimalware.

While the quad-core Transformer Prime has seen its fair share of negative accusations, it's still the tablet of the moment. In fact, it's so sought after that ASUS is having a hard time filling shipments and it's still out of stock nearly everywhere (sound familiar?).

If you've been waiting around for one of the major retailers to get a new shipment in, then make ready the credit card - the 64GB version in amethyst grey just became (re)available on Amazon.

LG-X3

Okay, so CES didn't provide all the quad-core, ICS-running goodness that we'd all hoped for. Don't fret, though - Mobile World Congress is coming up at the end of next month and will probably deliver more super-powered Android than we can handle.

One such device is likely to be a new handset from LG, codenamed X3. According to PocketNow, this will be the first quad-core offering from the company, packing the NVIDIA Tegra 3 superchip under its hood.

If you like to keep a watchful eye on your battery level (who doesn't?), then you probably have some sort of widget to that lets you know how much juice your phone has left. That's great, but you have to navigate away from any foreground application in order to check the battery status. Enter T.E.A.M. Battery Bar, a new app that displays a customizable bar at the top (or bottom) of the screen indicating how much battery is left .

Since launch, the ASUS Transformer Prime's GPS issues have hampered an otherwise stellar tablet. To make matters worse, ASUS confirmed that the problem was due to the Prime's all-aluminium construction, indicating that a software fix was unlikely. Indeed ASUS was forced to release a new version of the Prime (TF700T), with an updated back panel to improve the GPS functionality. However, ASUS has not given up all hope on the original Prime as a new OTA update (V9.4.2.7) is rolling out, which could fix the GPS drivers.

Adding an entry to the long list of novelty photo apps in the Android Market, SilkenMermaid has introduced TurboCollage - an aptly named app that allows users to make "picture pile" collages in just a few moments, with a surprising amount of control options.

Once you selects images to be included in the collage, the photos can be rotated, resized, scaled, and layered, to create a collage that perfectly matches your vision.

Stanislav Merezhko recently introduced a game called Doptrix to the Android Market. I have to say that at first glance, I wasn't expecting anything brilliant. I was mistaken.

Doptrix turns Tetris-like gameplay on its head, literally. The game uses a familiar four-block shape pushing premise, but allows the player to turn, rotate, and flip the game board as they choose. The player can also choose when (and from what position) a shape launches toward the board.

Looking to provide users with an alternative to Android's stock Gallery app, CultStory recently introduced Photo Calendar, an app which organizes all the photos on your device according to date (with custom album options).

Utilizing Photo Calendar's no-nonsense interface, users can browse their photos using album, month, and calendar views. The calendar view is particularly handy, displaying photos for each day of the month, and even detailing what time each image was captured.
