Verizon Wireless axes $2 convenience fee — that was fast

I've tried not to use this word too many times but for this one we can say #winning. This is a score for all of us -- the good guys. After Verizon announced they'd start charging a ridiculous $2.00 fee as a "convenience fee" for customers paying their bill online and a few various other methods there was a huge backlash and plenty of bad PR that surrounded it. It appears that Verizon has listened because today they've already axed that plan.

LG pairs with Intel, set to debut Android devices at CES 2012

I wouldn't really call 2011 a good year for LG although they have released a few awesome Android devices like the Nitro HD. Hearing leaks about upcoming devices is nothing new especially with CES getting closer and closer. We've heard a few reports that Samsung will be pairing with Intel's new Android-aimed Medfield mobile processor but now it appears that the other Korean manufacturer LG is too -- or maybe it was them all along.

HTC Thunderbolt gets the HTCDev unlock treatment

HTC has been busy adding devices and support for their bootloader unlocking program and just yesterday announced that all devices released after September 2011 are fully unlockable. While this is great news I know there are still thousands of HTC Thunderbolt owners waiting for the real thing too. Today it appears they've updated just that as the Thunderbolt and Incredible 2 have now been added to HTCDev.com and are now truly free.

GADMEI 8″ glasses-free 3D tablet can be yours for $199

First off let me start by saying I'm still not really sold on this mobile 3D technology even though I did enjoy reviewing the HTC EVO 3D. What we have for you today is really interesting though because it has some impressive specs on a full HD 8" 1280 x 800 resolution display all rocking glasses-free 3D. The downside is only Android 2.3 Gingerbread on board but I'm sure a few XDA developers could change that. Check out the full specs, pictures, and video below.

Tankbot lets you control tiny desktop warfare via your Android device

You're never too old to enjoy the simple pleasure of remote control toys. And the tiny, cheap remote cars and helicopters that have sprung up in the last couple of years are no exception - plus, they're great for driving pets nuts. If you'd like to integrate your remote-controlled fun with your unabashed Android nerdiness, Desk Pets has you covered with their new Tankbot. The tiny plastic robots can operate independently, or be directly controlled via your smartphone.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II coming with special Tegra 3 edition

Raise your hand if you've been busting Robotnik's chops in the newly re-released Sonic CD, now available in the Android Market for just three bucks. If one of the best classic Sonic games isn't enough for you, Sega's got some exciting news: the second installment of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 will be spin-dashing its way to Android in 2012. Even more exciting, it will be getting a special edition that takes advantage of Nvidia's quad-core Tegra 3 processor, putting the game in the same ballpark as its PC and console counterparts.

HTC Jetstream gets permanent root and CWM recovery

Make no mistake: the HTC Jetstream is an awesome 10-inch tablet. And it might have a considerable following at this point, if it weren't for the fact that AT&T's insane pricing on the thing. Still, its hardware charms have given it more than a few fans, who will no doubt be happy to hear that it's finally been rooted. ClockworkMod Recovery, the most popular custom recovery for Android at the moment, has been successfully installed. Custom ROMs for the high-end 4G tablet can't be far behind.

Android.Arspam is the latest malware threat, says Symantec

There's been a lot of news in the last few months about Trojans and other malware aimed at Android devices, and with millions of new phones and tablets being sold every week, that's not likely to change any time soon. Security software vendor Symantec has identified the latest Trojan to gain a major foothold, called "Android.Arspam". The Trojan imitates a legitimate app in the Android Market designed to aid Islamic prayers with a compass pointing towards Mecca, and has found its way onto an increasing number of Middle Eastern Android phones.
