[Deal Alert] Lenovo IdeaPad K1 On Sale At Best Buy For Only $329.99 ($120 Off Its Regular Price)

The IdeaPad K1 from Lenovo, released earlier this year, is bursting with features and ports, but reviews suggest that it is perhaps not the best Android tablet available on the market today.  Nevertheless, it is a powerful little beast running Honeycomb and for the next two days (9 to 10 October) Best Buy is offering this device for only $329.99, that's $120 discount of the regular price ($449.99).

In case you have forgotten, the K1 runs on Android 3.1 and has the following specs:

  • 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 T20 processor
  • 10.1" (1280x800) display
  • Android 3.1
  • 32GB of storage
  • 1GB RAM
  • 5 MP rear camera, 2MP front cameras
  • Built-in 802.11b/g/n wireless LAN
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • Mini HDMI output
  • microSD card slot

    This deal probably won't appeal to Christy, who won an IdeaPad K1 in our banner design contest, but for the rest of you interested in Lenovo's Android offering, pick one up from BB by 10 October 2011.

    [Updated] Samsung And Google Postpone Nexus Prime And Ice Cream Sandwich Announcements

    We've been hearing about the Nexus Prime for months now, but things have really been heating up in the past week or so: first, Samsung released an official teaser trailer about the event and gave us a glimpse of the device's side profile. And yesterday, we had two conflicting sets of specs "leak out" (though obviously neither was confirmed). Finally, the official AndroidDevelopers YouTube account put up a video called "Android ICS Launch," set to stream during the Samsung Unpacked event in which the Prime and ICS were set to be revealed.

    So yeah, there's something else to add to the confirmed stack. Still though, we have four days until the rest of the goods are upon us.

    [Update: Pricing Error] 16GB HTC Flyer On Sale For Just $100 At Best Buy Stores (Where Available)

    Update: Turns out this was just a pricing error, and Best Buy is not honoring the price. Sorry for the false alarm, everyone!

    Just a few days ago, Best Buy dropped the price of the HTC Flyer to just $300, and today they've dropped it further to $100. At that price, it certainly seems like a fire sale (similar to the HP TouchPad), but at this point it's unclear what's prompting the uber-low price.

    Editorial: 5 Reasons Why I Think The iPhone 4S Is The Least Competitive iPhone Yet

    I’d like to start by stating I am not a rabid Android “fanboy.” In fact, I heavily considered the iPhone 3GS back in the day (er, last year), before deciding to pick up my Nexus One instead. Admittedly, I was a bit bedazzled by the concept of a “Google phone” and, as a confessed mega-geek, I found the bleeding-edge experience Android offered to be more exciting for some reason.

    So I chose an Android device.

    Adobe Releases Flash Player 11 And Adobe AIR 3, Leaves Out Hardware-Acceleration On Android

    As promised late last month, Adobe has released updated versions of their Flash Player and AIR products to the Android Market. In our earlier article we outlined some of the new features that the updates would bring including, Stage 3D, an architecture that enables hardware-accelerated rendering at 1000x the speed of Flash Player 10, theatre-quality HD video, native 64-bit optimizations, and HD video conferencing. Unfortunately, the latest blog post from Adobe indicates that 2D and 3D graphics rendering through Stage 3D will only be available on Windows, Mac OS X and connected TVs.

    Popular Physics Game World Of Goo Coming To Android, Dubbed 'GooDroid'

    World of Goo, by indie developer 2D Boy, is a highly addictive physics-based puzzle/construction game that has won several design and gaming awards since its release.

The goo balls can be used to make bridges, towers, and other structures to overcome gravity and terrain. Currently, the game is available on a number of platforms, including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS, and Wii; and earlier today 2D Boy announced that the game would finally be coming to Android tablets and smartphones "soon."

    [Update: It's Most Likely Fake] BlackBerry Messenger On The Horizon For Android, Leaked BlurryCam Photos Show Up As 'Proof'

    Update: It looks like someone has way too much time on their hands. As reader benjymous pointed out in the comments, the second image is clearly ripped directly from a demo java app from the BBM SDK, giving us solid reason to believe that this is indeed fake. Boo!

    As an ardent Android fan I spent the better part of the last few months trying to convince my girlfriend to switch over to the green robot after she lost her beloved BlackBerry and required a replacement phone.
