Wallee M Kickstarter is an awesome modular case for the Galaxy Nexus

Kickstarter has some great projects in the mobile space, and a lot of them are for nifty accessories you'd be unlikely to see anywhere else - check the 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.

The HTC One X is tough as nails

...or tougher, in fact. We've seen this trick performed before, but it's nice to see that one of the most high-profile phones in the android world can take a lickin' and keep on tickin'. We don't know why this angry Russian man is hammering nails into a two-by-four with his shiny new 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.

Sony Xperia Neo L could be headed for global market

The 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.

Verizon rolling out 4.0.4 OTA for the Galaxy Nexus

Nexus owners, mark your calendars: it's been exactly five and a half months since the 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.

Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 slated for June release

Lenovo's tablet selection in the US has left a little to be desired of late, but that's about to change. The company announced today that the 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.
