HTC One X is about to be launched worldwide starting next week. Being available in the UK and throughout parts of China. While we are still hopeful to hear more details regarding this impressive phone landing in the US. We already know a dual-core LTE version is headed to AT&T. Now new emails from Best Buy claim the phone has been delayed until May 6th.

Galaxy S III of course. With the One series starting to finally break cover this week, and being available as soon as Monday around the world it's about to make a big entrance. We loved it at MWC and surely will love it once it's available in the US. Today HTC has released a nice ad spot, but it doesn't show the phone much.
DoubleTwist burst onto the Android scene as an alternative and bridge for iTunes, but now that Google sells its own tunes, they're getting with the program. The DoubleTwist app can now recognize music from the Google Play Music service and plays them back through its app alongside any of the standard MP3s or other songs you've got stored on your Android devices' internal storage or SD card. There's just one hitch: like Cloud Music Sniper, the updated app can only "see" the music you've selected for offline access in the Google Music app.
Samsung's Galaxy Beam, with its integrate pico projector - and you can reserve your unit now. UK web retailer Clove has the Galaxy Beam up for pre-order for £369.00, £442.80 after taxes. That comes out to just over $700 USD. Ouch. The release date isn't mentioned on Clove's website.
Xperia Play and others. Unfortunately, it looks like users will have to wait a little longer than they'd previously thought. Sony said in December that the first updated phones would be the Xperia Arc S , Neo V and Ray would be getting official updates in March, but they've bumped them back to mid-April. No word on the rest of the Xperia line, previously said to be updated in April or May.
Temple Run to Android. For weeks you filled our comments section with hundreds of replies (you kiss your mothers with those mouths?). And when Temple Run finally sprinted onto the Google Play store, you didn't disappoint. In just three days the Android version of the game racked up a million downloads. And if the graph for new players on the Google Play Store is accurate, it isn't slowing down any time soon.
Google Drive" remote storage service have been around since before the current cloud craze, but if recent screenshots can be believed, it's finally coming to fruition very soon. Talk Android got tipped on what looks like a Dropbox-style web service from the Big G offering 5 gigabytes of free cloud storage, considerably more than some would-be competitors. The style of the webpage matches Google's most recent updates for other web services, and the triangular logo matches the one we saw in a previous leak. This could be fake, but I kind of doubt it.
much-anticipated 4.0.4 update? Maybe you're stuck in a low coverage area or you just don't want to spend the data before (or after) you reach your cap. For whatever reason, you no longer need to wait: Google has posted the full ZIP update for earlier versions. Installing is simple, even if you've never done this sort of thing before - but you will need the proper Android ADB tools and drivers installed on your computer. Before you begin, click here to download the English GSM Galaxy Nexus update file, or check this XDA thread for localized versions in other languages or older updates.
Nexus Tablet rumors this evening: NVIDIA CEO spoke with the New York Times about lowering the price of Android tablets. Quote mister Jen-Hsun Huang: "“We took out $150 in build materials, things like expensive memory. At $199, you can just about buy a tablet at a 7-Eleven.” That's a long way from any sort of confirmation, but it shows that NVIDIA is as anxious as we are to lower the price of Android tablets, especially those with high-end components like the Tegra 3 processor.
