People all across twitter, myself included retweeted tons of comments regarding HTC and their new policy of having locked bootloaders on their devices.

LG Revolution Review

Welcome to the Revolution! This is LG's newest effort for Verizon, the LG Revolution running on their 4G LTE network. This device features a 4.3-inch 480 x 800 pixel resolution TFT display and a single core Snapdragon MSM8655 1GHz processor, connecting with Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, HDMI, DNLA, and it's got Netflix! That this is one of the most important draws to the device makes us wary of it. But behold, this is an LG phone and we've been rolling out with some rather impressive LG phones as of late. The LG Optimus 3D and the T-Mobile G2x were pretty excellent, how does the LG Revolution add up?

Things are looking better and better and hopefully I can get my hands on this device soon. Check out our Galaxy Tab 10.1 hands-on while you are here.

Android Community App of the Week: TweetCaster HD for Honeycomb

I must say that ever since I got my Motorola Xoom I've been wishing for a good Twitter client on honeycomb. TweetComb first came out and we did a mini review on that. Later it went from being a paid app to free for all. Personally it is nice but it is too similar to Tweetdeck for PC and I didn't like the small size and having all three panels always open. TweetCaster has came to the rescue for all us android tablet users and so far I love it.

Original Nexus S Will Not Have Google Wallet Until T-Mobile Approves

Google's new NFC payment solution, Google Wallet is cool to be sure, but as of now it only works with one phone, Sprint's Nexus S 4G. T-Mobile users on who have the original Nexus S have been left wondering why they aren't so privileged. Both versions of Nexus S models have the same NFC chip, but a spokesperson from Google has confirmed that they have not yet reached an agreement with T-Mobile, and until such an agreement happens, only Sprint's version will be able to use Wallet.

Netflix App Updated to now support Motorola Droid, other phones working too [Update]

It looks like Netflix has just updated the app for Android, it now supports the original Motorola Droid, the G'zOne Commando from Casio, as well as the LG Revolution that just started shipping with Netflix pre-installed. Earlier in May Netflix launched for Android but only with a few devices supported so it is good to see an update come so fast to support additional devices.
