Pebble Smart Watch for an exception. But finally there's a worthy case we can get behind, because the creators have wisely decided to include both the Galaxy Necus and the Galaxy S II in their support. If you're looking for a unique and certifiably awesome dock for your desk or car, check out Wallee.

HTC One X. We don't really care, either. We just like to see good old-fashioned engineering start to make phones than can double as small home repair tools.
Xperia Neo L turned heads when it was announced out of sheer novelty: at the time, it was Sony's one and only Ice Cream Sandwich handset. Then we all faced the disappointment that it was only confirmed for a release in China, and got on with our day. Now the device has popped up on Sony's international website, strutting its stuff in both black and white. That's a definite indication that a wider rollout is on the horizon.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus was released exclusively on Verizon in the United States. In that time the phone has received one and only one official update, to Android 4.0.2.... which was almost immediately overshadowed by 4.0.3, then 4.0.4 over two months ago. Today reports are spreading that Verizon is finally, finally sending out the 4.0.4 update over the air, making its LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus officially current for the first time in almost half a year.
Santa Clara, with a 1.6Ghz single-core Atom (Medfield) processor inside.
Bridea and NVIDIA for some time. Being THD this is only for Tegra 3 quad-core devices for now, and brings an easy-to-play arcade style shooter to Android. Available now you'll want to see our hands-on video below.
IdeaTab S2109, first shown off last month, will be hitting the States in June. The price is a little disappointing at $349.99, but it comes with at least one unique feature that you won't find anywhere else: four external SRS surround sound speakers. That alone should make it one of the most capable tablets on the market from an audio perspective.
Oppo didn't even last a week before somebody swooped in and took their "thinnest smartphone" badge for the finder. The corporate griefer in this case is Chinese manufacturer ZTE, whose new "Athena" smartphone was spotted by Weibo looking positively anorexic. The Athena beats the Finder by a whole .3mm, for a total Z-height of 6.2mm. Pricing and availability are, of course, up in the air.
reported this morning that iOS smash-hit newsreader Flipboard would be entering beta soon, catering to specific handsets in order for the developer to get used to multiple screen resolutions. Well we were only half right, but we were half right really fast, so I'm going to call it a win. All interested parties can now download the Flipboard beta APK from their website, and navigate the news with aplomb using RSS feeds, social networking and gestures. Which is what we did, rather promptly, for your enjoyment.
Google Play Store. Yes you'll be able to buy hardware docks and more all from the Play Store just like they recently started doing with the Galaxy Nexus. For now they only have accessories for one device, but we expect more to be coming soon.
