Sharp Announces A New Skin Called 'Feel UX' For Its Japanese Handsets, And It Actually Looks Pretty Good

I know what you're thinking: "Oh no,  not another Android skin!" That was my initial thought, too; after seeing what Sharp and frog (the design firm behind this skin) have done with Feel UX, though, I actually kind of like it.

Official Cyanogenmod 9 Nightlies Now Available For The ASUS Transformer Pad 300

Ever since unlocking the bootloader and rooting my Transformer Pad 300 (TF300), I've been patiently waiting for the Cyanogenmod team to release a build specifically for it. Since they already support the TF101 (original Transformer) and TF201 (Transformer Prime), I assumed it was only a matter of time before a build showed up for the TF300 - turns out I was right, as that build just hit the CM download site this morning.

Review: For Those Willing To Part With The EVO LTE's Paper-Thin Frame, Seidio's Surface, Active, And Convert Combo Cases Offer A Full Spectrum Of Protection

Although I've dropped a phone a total of about three times in my life, and although manufacturers are continually touting more and more durable glass, polycarbonate plastic, and even metal that's 3x stronger than stainless steel, there lingers in the back of my mind the question of what may happen if and when that fateful day comes – the day when I finally drop my phone onto an unforgiving concrete, asphalt, or otherwise hard surface.

[Deal Alert] Galaxy S III On AT&T Pre-Orders For $150; Sprint Version For $180

While the Galaxy S III pre-order frenzy started early last week, we've yet to see the device going for anything less than retail price. Now, however, Amazon Wireless and Target Mobile both have the AT&T variant for $150 with an updgrade. Normally we see the best deals reserved for folks looking to sign a new contract, so this is definitely the exception to that rule.

A few days ago, T-Mobile's version of the Samsung Galaxy S II, codenamed "Hercules," received a hearty scoop of Ice Cream Sandwich. Today, the fun continues for owners of the device, as Team Douche just made available official CM9 nightlies.

Definition: A "nightly" is a cutting-edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.
