Nexus 7 tablet has officially launched today. It started shipping yesterday from various UK retailers, Gamestop in the US started sending out confirmations that those who pre-ordered could pick theirs up, and Google's Play Store has begun shipping all pre-orders as of this afternoon. We are now seeing multiple retailers and sites across the US already selling out -- which is a good sign for Google but a bad sign if you haven't ordered one yet.
Galaxy S III superphone has arrived on all 4 major US carriers, and is set to hit US Cellular next. Verizon was the last to bring the device to market, then had a few delays causing it to be even later than the rest. Today however we've decided to do a quick hands-on and unboxing of the brand new handset so you know what you're getting into should you decide to buy. Check out the video after the break.
Samsung just cannot get away from angry Apple fans. Samsung has opened a new retail store in Vancouver, Canada - its first in North America - and apparently some can't help but draw comparisons and Apple's famous boutiques.

It begs the question though - is this really something to get all worked up about?
Verizon might be just what you're looking for. It's like Netflix or Gamefly (in a way) although you seem to be limited to their specific apps they've chosen for you. More details can be had below.
Android OS are by far the most popular. In all, 51.8% of smartphone users in June 2012 were using an Android-based handset, while only 34% of smartphone users had picked an iOS device. Android came out on top with 3 month recent acquirers as well, with 54.6% of new users in Q2 going for Android, as compared to 36.3% for iOS.
Motorola Atrix HD and what they are calling the Motorola "Circle Widget" and I instantly wanted it. It's one of the better all-in-one weather, clock, and battery widgets we've seen lately -- and now has been pulled so others can enjoy it too.
Nexus 7 pre-orders are shipping now!!! No need to get out the pitchforks because Gamestop didn't follow the rules. Google has confirmed that pre-orders for their brand new tablet are shipping to all starting today. For more information the phone number and details are after the break.
