If there's one thing that's advancing at radically enticing speed in the Android world, it's gaming. Think about the games you were playing on Android a year ago, then watch this video. You'll find that not only is the game Riptide GP, a game we've looked at several times before still an awesome game, we've got it updated to the newest version available and, what do you know, it's got the ability to work with 3rd party controllers. We got a nice package from NVIDIA containing the Logitech Wireless Gamepad F710 for some USB-connected action and we were on our way! Not before getting those controls calibrated to our precise wave-riding calibrations right first though, you know we love our calibrations.

AT&T's 4G-enabled version of the 10.1-inch Acer Iconia Tab, the A501, will go on sale September 18 the carrier has confirmed, though don't expect crazy fast data speeds.

As well as the HSPA+ there's WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth, along with USB 2.0, HDMI and a microSDHC memory card slot. NVIDIA's Tegra 2 processor keeps things running. Acer says it will also be offering a 32GB version of the A501, though so far AT&T is yet to confirm it will be ranging the slate.

Google Reader v1.0.1 for Tablets App Review

Ever have the feeling that it would make more sense for a group of developers to WAIT to release an app rather than sent it out with a less than optimal user interface? Google didn't wait to release Google Reader back in the days when there were only handsets around, they jammed it out there and it looked pretty good, but bigger screens were directly on the horizon, and when these bigger screens arrived in tablet form, Google got busy. I mean got busy several months later, 3 quarters into the same year the Motorola XOOM was released near the beginning of, with a whole slew of tablets out ready and raring to Google Reader some feeds but having a non-fantastic official app to do it with - what's one to do?!
