GALAXY-Tab-7.7-Product-Image-6

While we've yet to actually see a release date for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 that Samsung debuted back in September, the company has now dropped the kernel source code for the device. In the past, this usually indicates an impending release, so we're willing to bet that availability will be officially announced at CES next week.

For those who need a reminder of what the Tab 7.7 is all about:

  • 7.7-inch 1280x800 Super AMOLED Plus display (the first tablet to have this)
  • 1.4GHz dual-core Exynos
  • 3MP rear shooter, 2MP 'round front
  • Android 3.2
  • 5,100mAh battery

Of course, a lot can change in three months, so we may actually see some changes made to the specs of the device before its release.

We told you yesterday that Android 2.3 started rolling out to the Samsung Replenish on Sprint, and now it looks like the eco-friendly handset is coming to one of Sprint's pay-as-you-go carriers, Boost Mobile.

Boost announced the handset this morning, and while it's not a game-changing device in terms of spec, it does have a nice price tag: $99. No contract. You can't beat that with a stick.

Specs:

  • 2.8-inch display (240x320) with physical QWERTY
  • 600MHz single-core processor
  • 2MP rear shooter
  • Android 2.3
  • Made from recycled materials

Like I said, it's not a game changer.

Update: We're getting reports that NachoRoot also successfully roots the original Transformer, which, until now, has been unrootable on the latest firmware. Simply follow the directions listed below!

Transformer Prime - two words that we've heard quite a bit over the last week or so. Root - a word that we hear on a daily basis in the world of Android. What do you get when you put the two together?

At  this point, I'm sure you've heard that the Transformer Prime has GPS issues. Issues so bad that ASUS even removed GPS from the Prime's list of features. Under normal circumstances, we would all sit back and wait for a software update to roll out with a fix, but that's not going cut it this time.

This is serious.

ASUS has already acknowledged that the Prime's GPS issues are due to its all-aluminum construction.

The carrier-connected Honeycomb tablet arena hasn't been very successful up to this point, mostly due to the outrageous prices that the units have been showing up with -- we've yet to see one for less than $400. Enter the Pantech Element, a "waterproof" tablet that looks to change the game with its sub-$300 price tag.

The Element is an 8-inch Honeycomb-powered tablet that runs on AT&T's LTE network, packing a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 16GB of storage, 5MP rear shooter, and 2MP front camera.

We've all heard of the low-budget Velocity Cruz tablets before, and it looks like company is keeping the brand alive in 2012 with a pair of Android 4.0 tablets.

As expected, these aren't the most powerful portables on the planet -- but, then again, they'll likely have a price to match. The smaller of the duo is the Cruz T507, a 7-inch slate with a Cortex A8 1.2GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 8GB internal store, front-facing camera, HDMI out, and Amazon's Appstore as its go-to marketplace.

Still holding out for a bargain on an unlocked Galaxy Nexus? Thanks to Mobile Daily Steals, you may be one step closer to getting your hands on one of 2011's most hotly anticipated devices (not to mention Ice Cream Sandwich). MDS is offering the 16GB Galaxy Nexus (unlocked) for a (relatively) paltry $559.99 - a huge discount compared to other prices we've seen. The GSM unlocked variant of the Galaxy Nexus will work with a wide variety of GSM frequencies, including AT&T and T-Mobile.

One of the less talked about, but still quite popular, names in smartphones over the last couple of years is LG's Optimus line. Looks like the brand will get a refresh for 2012, as the Optimus 2 has made its way onto LG's website. The device is far from spectacular, rocking a 3.2-inch 320x480 display, 800Mhz processor, Gingerbread, and CDMA radios.

For anyone interested, we expect that it will probably get the official unveiling at CES next week.
