If you walk into AT&T right now to buy the HTC One X and sign a new agreement, you'll not only be overrun by people trying to get the new iPhone, but pay $100 for it. Here's a better idea: stay home, head over to Amazon Wireless, and get the same phone for just $20 (if you're opening a new AT&T account). You'll avoid the crowd, standing in line, and having to listen to some salesman tell you to buy some other phone that's not nearly as good. You know which one I'm talking about.

Coinciding with the announcement of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Android developers can now pull down a new revision of Android's SDK tools – revision 20, along with a new version of the ADT Plugin, also r20 (which Eclipse users will need to use SDK r20).
The revised SDK tools bring several improvements. One of the notable additions to the SDK tools is System Trace (otherwise known as systrace), a tool (included in Project Butter) that helps monitor system activities, allowing developers to pinpoint graphical rendering or other issues. For those wondering just what else is new, take it from the revision notes found at Android's Developer site:
- Added new Device Monitor application, grouping Android debugging tools into a single application, including ddms, traceview, hierarchyviewer and Tracer for GLES.
The LG Lucid, previously known as the Cayman, is available on Verizon Wireless starting today, March 29th. This decently spec'ed handset sports:
- dual-core 1.2GHz processor
- 1GB of RAM
- 4" IPS LCD reinforced by Corning glass
- 5MP rear and VGA front-facing cameras with 1080p video capture support
- 8GB internal storage with support for a MicroSD card up to 32GB in size (sold separately)
- 1700mAh battery
- Wi-Fi Direct
- Bluetooth 3.0 + EDR
- 4G LTE support (as will be the case with all future VZW phones)
- Mobile hotspot with up to 10 devices while on LTE or 5 devices on 3G
- Android 2.3, slated for Ice Cream Sandwich
- A whole slew of VZW
Looking at these specs, if I didn't know any better, I'd ballpark the price for this device somewhere around $150. Read More
