While we linked a pretty impressive Wirefly deal for pre-ordering the MyTouch 4G a while back, if you didn't take advantage of it, the phone is now available to everyone on T-Mobile's website for $199 after a mail-in rebate on a 2-year contract, new or extended. Presumably the device can be found at your local T-Mobile store as well.

If you're not fond of the contractual ball and chain, the MyTouch 4G will set you back $450 purchased standalone, sans contract.

While many of us would be happy to have any kind of Galaxy Tab at all, there's a certain breed who won't rest until they've eviscerated their latest electronic acquisition for the greater good. One such fellow is Finnish mobility blogger JKK at jkkmobile.com, who took it upon himself to dismantle his shiny new tablet and show its insides to all and sundry.

As you can see in the video, the bulkiest component of the Galaxy Tab is easily its battery, with an impressively large 4000 mAh / 14.8 Wh rating.

It's not every day that I shoot videos of Android games (in fact, this is my first one ever) but when I saw EVAC HD hit the Market yesterday, I felt the need to do it. It wasn't even the graphics, which, by the way, are awesome, it wasn't the gameplay, which is also good - it was the music and the sounds that captivated me. I have only one way to describe them - "magical".

One of the reasons I love Android is because you can customize the heck out of your experience. Replacing the stock launcher with Launcher Pro is pretty much the first thing I do now when I get a new phone because of the innovations a hard-working, smart, and dedicated engineer (Fede) can bring to the table.

However, Launcher Pro is not too much different from the stock UI, outside of tweaks and other little but important things - same goes for ADW and other home replacements.

There is no shortage of media applications for Android - in fact, Winamp that came out last week was the most serious and robust media offering I've seen so far. However, when it comes to strictly the media player functionality, even Winamp can't touch what I'm about to show you - a new beta app called PowerAMP.

PowerAMP is an Android media player developed by a cool Russian dude by the name of Maxim Petrov (Max MP).

What do we have here? Why, it's a giant Gingerbread statue getting installed over at Googleplex, right next to Froyo and the rest of the gang. It's not exactly what we'd been expecting and hoping to see today, but it's a start. Last time the Froyo statue was installed, we got the SDK a week later. Bring it on, Google!

For such a small carrier (the smallest out of the four US nationals), T-Mobile's got a pretty good selection of Android smartphones - the now infamous G2 from HTC, the Samsung Vibrant, and the Motorola Charm being just a few. Well, it looks like Huawei may be adding their own phone, the Comet (previously known as the Ideos), to that heap come November 3rd, along with a 3MP camera, GPS capabilities, and the Swype keyboard out of the box.

Recently, I got ahold of Verizon's Samsung Fascinate and shot the following video review (and yes, I have a capacitive stylus - start getting jealous):

For a quick refresher, here, once again, are the specs of the Fascinate:

  • 1GHz Hummingbird processor
  • Android 2.1 (Eclair)
  • 5MP camera wih LED flash
  • 4" Super Amoled capacitive multitouch (5 point) screen
  • 2GB internal memory
  • Bluetooth 3.0 (with stereo output)
  • 3.5mm Headphone Jack
  • Supports HD (720p) video recording

Here are those pictures I promised.

Was John Connor right? Are robots going to be our downfall? Terminators? Androids? Andronators?

At Google's Developer Show in Tokyo, something that might just be one of the coolest Android creations ever was demonstrated - a real, moving Google Android logo. Built and developed by the Japanese company, RT the Android was shown to be able to walk, open its mouth, and wave its arms. Best of all, the Android is controlled entirely from an Android OS handset.

Ever wanted to know what exactly it takes to roll out a whole new cellular network? Sprint, being one of the first companies in the US to do it (well, Clearwire is doing all the leg work), today launched a new video series which will explore just what exactly it takes to provide a large metropolitan area with 4G coverage.

The first video, "Wiring up 4G in NYC: Rooftops," is out now, embedded below.
