Moneto brings NFC to older phones with $30 MicroSD card and app

Want NFC capability? Stuck in a two-year contract with a phone that doesn't have it? Then you're in luck: Moneto is bringing near-field communication chips crammed into standard MicroSD card slots, and using an Android app to add in basic NFC payment capability to almost any Android phone. Theoretically, anyway: at the moment it only works on Samsung's original Galaxy S  and variants for United States carriers - the Vibrant, Fascinate, and the Galaxy S 4G. They're working on adding compatibility to about three dozen phones from Samsung, Motorola, Sony, HTC, LG, and Huawei.

New Nook Tablet root method requires just a MicroSD card and a reboot

The Nook Tablet has become notoriously difficult to mod, thanks in no small part to Barnes & Noble's decision to ship it with a locked bootloader. Various software updates have closed root methods already in use, making it more and more difficult for modders to do what they wish with they hardware they bought. Thankfully, XDA member Indirect has combined a series of hacks to create a root method that launches directly from a MicroSD card, which boots directly into ClockworkMod Recovery.

Verizon drops DROID RAZR price to $199 sans SD card

Good things come to those who wait. If you waited a few months before buying a Motorola DROID RAZR on Verizon, that good thing is a shiny $100 discount. The 16GB version of the DROID RAZR is now $199.99 on Verizon's website, and should be the same at most corporate stores (though retail and online partners might be a little behind the curve). The 32GB version is now $299.99. The price drop is a little misleading - both models have 16BG of internal memory, but the more expensive one also comes with a 16GB card, which the cheaper version lacks.

The Trash Can/Recycling Bin is one of the handiest features of desktop computer for those with the know-how to use it. Due to mobile phone's Flash-based storage, similar functionality has been hard to duplicate - until now. Developer Fahrbot Mobile's latest app Undelete Beta allows users to restore recently deleted files and folders from Android phones' MicroSD card. The app requires root access, and is available for free in the Android Market.

Lynx receiver brings you Sirius XM by way of Android

One of the wonderful things about Android is that its open-source nature allows it to be put to all sorts of uses. Already it powers phones, tablets, e-readers, netbooks, at least a couple of actual robots, and we've got one unconfirmed report of a toaster. While there's already a few in-dash car stereos running Android, Sirius XM's upcoming Lynx receiver should allow you to add some Google-flavored tunes to your car without a major installation. Best Buy let the unannounced satellite radio receiver slip on its website last weekend.
