Another day, another Xperia Play leak. This time images of a possible in-store demo booth for the device have cropped up on Dutch site AllAboutPhones.
While there's not a lot of new information to be gleaned from these pictures (partly because almost everything about this phone has alreadybeenleaked), eagle-eyed viewers will notice what seems to be a T-Mobile logo on the close-up of the stand. T-Mobile operates in many territories, however, so it'd be premature to jump to any conclusions based on this logo placement alone.
Be sure to feign as much surprise as possible when the Xperia Play is officially confirmed and revealed, most likely at the 2011 Mobile World Congress later this month. [AllAboutPhones]
Let's be clear -- the Best Buy Grand Rapids South Facebook page isn't exactly the same as news coming from the steps of Best Buy HQ. But we take what we can get around here, we suppose. [Best Buy Grand Rapids South Facebook via Droid Life]
New phones always means new goodies for developers and hackers. With the release of the HTC Inspire 4G to a few people, it was only a matter of time until the system of AT&T's big beauty were pulled out and made available. As you can see in our hands-on with the Inspire 4G, it's the new version of HTC Sense -- Evo, Dinc and Desire hackers take note -- without too much AT&T bloat added in to screw it up make things better.
If you're curious, or like to tinker grab it and have a look. And if you're planning on getting the Inspire 4G and doing any type of happy hacking on it, grab it as a safety net. Trust me ;) [Android Central forums]

Google just released the latest figures on the number of Android variants in the wild. For the two weeks ending Feb. 2, 89.8 percent of devices are on Android 2.1 and up. Realistically, that means Android 2.1 and 2.2 -- Froyo leads the way at 57.6 percent -- as only 0.8 percent are running Gingerbead. That gives you a feel for how few Nexus S's have sold.
