ASUS Transformer Prime. Cory Gunther put it to the test through some rigorous benchmark tests and great video demonstrations. To date, it has performed better than any current Android tablet on the market. Next up, Michael Crider posted a review of the new Nitro HD by LG. It turned out to have quite a crisp IPS LCD display, but turned out to be a quite bland device in general.

4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will arrive and today Motorola has made the process even more clear. They stated the DROID RAZR would see ICS early next year and also unlock bootloaders, but we've heard that chime from them before. Today Motorola breaks down the process but I'm not sure how I feel about the news.
Google+, Google engineering intern Andrew Munn explained to us precisely why Android OS will never be as fluid as iOS or Windows Phone 7 devices.
a leaked press image of the device, and most noticeable is the glowing ring that paths around the bottom. The softkeys are definitely there, but the glow is probably just for looks - and that's fine by me. From this new image, it's safe to say the Arc HD will come in both black and white models.
MX. Headed to mainland China January 1st, expect an initial cost of ¥2,999 ($470). It will pack some serious power from the included 1.4GHz Samsung Exynos 4210 dual-core processor and 1GB RAM. It will also sport a 4” ASV display with a 960x640 pixel ratio. Initially, the device will only be available with 16GB of internal storage, but expect a 32GB version later on.
from a Newegg pre-order page. Needless to say, we got the official word from ASUS confirming that same date Wednesday which turned out false. The Prime will arrive stateside on December 19th. The device is simply amazing, and we've got an excellent hands-on to prove it. Though our official review isn't out yet - you can check out the one over at our sister-site SlashGear. Yet another video taken compares the Transformer Prime to the Apple iPad 2 - a great matchup indeed.
Chris Chavez notes from Phandroid, it looks as if the actual device name may be the XPERIA Cloud - though that's not for certain. If you zoom into the photo you'll notice a few things; first off under the Camera heading, you can see it will take 1920x1080 video capture. Next you'll notice it has a dual core processor and even microSD support. I've always been a fan of the Sony Ericsson XPERIA line, and this phone looks the best by far. Unlike the Galaxy Nexus, it seems to have three softkeys included near the chin of the device, making navigation not completely dedicated to the display. It looks extremely thin, but then again most recent XPERIA devices (such as the Ray) were. I hope it makes it here to the states soon, because it would be a shame for the Galaxy Nexus to not have some proper competition! But chances are, our main man Chris Davies over in London will get it first - as most Sony Ericsson devices hit international waters first. [via Phandroid]
Samsung Nexus S. Apparently a few employees from Mountain View have received the OTA update on their very own Nexus S smartphones and it's safe to say the "dogfooding" testing has finally started. This is a great sign and I'm sure we'll see this available for download shortly.
Android Nyan Cat to this brand new "Dream" or screensaver feature that was uncovered in Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich yesterday. The guys from Android Police gave us the first look but today I have actual hands-on video with a real device, not a render from the Android SDK. Check out this new Android Dream feature on video below.
