Abusive Studios has released a sweet live wallpaper modeled after the Gate of Time. If you're a Zelda fan you'll no doubt enjoy it, but the wallpaper is so well done that even those who have never hurled a boomerang will find enough to like. Download it now in the Google Play Store.
ePrice reports seeing the Xperia Sola in the city, priced at just under $3,000 HKD. That's the equivalent of $387 US, not that it matters: at this point Sony has only confirmed the phone for Hong Kong and greater China.
ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime is one of the most powerful Android tablets on the market. But despite its robot-inspired name, it can't actual perform feats of incredible strength. It's not more powerful than a locomotive. It can't leap tall buildings in a single bound. And it certainly isn't faster than a speeding bullet - if it was, it might have been able to outrun the ones that a few experimental geeks sent blazing towards it.
Angry Birds Space is popular. That statement is something akin to "rock is hard" on the scale of most obvious things ever said, but a little specificity is useful: Rovio claims that the sequel to the smash hit Angry Birds has been downloaded 50 million times since it was released last month. That makes Angry Birds Space the fastest-growing ("selling" isn't really appropriate here) mobile game of all time. The stat takes into account downloads on Android and iOS.
Ice Cream Sandwich updates soon - a big ol' helping of Gingerbread, courtesy of Motorola! All joking aside, Canada is getting a unique mid-range phone that was previously available only to Europeans: the Motorola MOTOLUXE. this 4-inch fashion phone won't set the world on fire, but it might make a decent mid-range unlocked pickup for those who want something a little better than entry-level.
DROID Bionic is set to receive another update in the coming weeks as Motorola has started sending out their usual "soak test" invites for owners to participate in the testing phase. There's no telling if this is an incremental update, or Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at this point. The more updates the better though right?
dropped by the FCC for their standard gamut of wireless tests. And even better, the tablet is running Ice Cream Sandwich, something we're always happy to see.
Galaxy Tab 2 has been getting some attention from developers the past couple of weeks. Over the weekend it received root access and now Clockworkmod recovery is also available. Hopefully next on the list is CyanogenMod 9, then we'll be set. Details and links are available after the break.
MediaPad, also known as the T-Mobile Springboard here stateside. While it was the first 7-inch tablet to come with Android 3.2 Honeycomb, it wasn't the first to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich although they've beat most to the upgrade. Huawei has recently released the ICS update for the MediaPad and now it's available for download.
