The popular - and absolutely absurd - Ridiculous Fishing made its Android debut as part of the current Humble Mobile Bundle just last week, and now it's available in the Play Store. If you've been looking forward to getting your hands on this addictive, tilt-controlled, vaguely-fishing game but have no interest in the other titles offered in the bundle, this is a cheaper way to do so.
Many of the games we see enter the Play Store are just plain weird, but few can hold a candle to the premise behind Ridiculous Fishing. In this title, players drop a lure into the water and use tilt controls to avoid fish for as long as possible.
LG's latest flagship device is now available on Verizon Wireless, the first carrier to offer the 5.2-inch handset in-stores. Verizon customers can pick up one by handing over $199.99 with a two-year contract or paying $599 to get the phone contract-free.
Update: If you enter the promo code RMN30 at checkout, it will take $30% off the upfront cost, which amounts to $60. This should bring the price down to $139.99 before taxes. If that code doesn't work, try VERIZON30to gain the same savings.
The G2 is notable for its rear-key design, meaning the power button and volume keys are located on the back of the device, rather than the sides.
The 5.5-inch, LTE-toting LG Optimus G Pro is now available for purchase at AT&T. Packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 1080p display, and a 3,140mAh battery, the G Pro's no slouch, and, as we found in our review of the Korean version, stands up well against competitors like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
The Optimus G Pro can be picked up for $200 on a 2-year contract, $450 on a 1-year one (an option that makes the least sense financially), or $550 without signing your life away. It's currently in stock both online and at AT&T retail locations, so if you're in the market for a new tab/phone, get to it!
Remember Acer's quad-core tablet that managed to beat out ASUS' Transformer Prime by a pretty wide price difference? It's available from Amazon for an easier-on-the-wallet $450 right now. If you're holding out for the silver version, you can still place a pre-order with Amazon here. In case you need a refresher, here are the specs:
10.1-inch 1,280x800 display
Quad-Core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor
32GB built-in storage with microSD Card slot
5MP Rear shooter, 1MP front-facing camera
9,800mAh battery for 12 hours of continuous video playback
Android 4.0 with Acer Ring
The Olympics-branded tablet is an attractive choice for those who are looking for a budget tablet that doesn't strip away features that the bigger players share.
