Horrific battery life on Android phones is nothing new, and neither is the mind-
blowing shattering frailty of said handsets. We've seen - and reviewed - solutions to both of these issues, but for those who want a convenient, all-in-one product, nothing beats XPAL's "PowerSkins."
Available for a variety of devices, PowerSkins are, in a sentence, silicone cases with built-in batteries from which your phone can sip juice once its internal supply has run dry.

It looks like US Cellular's Android family is going to grow a bit over the next couple of weeks, as two new phones will be hitting the shelves: the HTC Merge and LG Genesis.
Even as a mid-range device, the HTC Merge is one that needs little introduction, as it has seen the spotlight on more than one occasion. Nevertheless, here are the specs of this lil beauty:
- 3.8 inch 480x800 Super LCD display
- 800MHz processor
- Global Ready
- 512MB RAM
- 5MP rear camera with 720p video capture
- 2GB built-in storage
- 8GB SD Card
- Physical QWERTY
- Android 2.2
The LG Genesis is a dual-screened, full keyboard sporting flipper that just so happens to be a US Cellular Exclusive.
