Not to get anybody's hopes up, but if this internal specs comparison is to believed, Verizon plans for Adobe Flash to be available on the Samsung Fascinate by the end of 2010. And to have Flash, you need Froyo, of course. So we've got a week to go. It's certainly possible, but we're not holding our breath just yet. And note that the Droid X is listed here as having Android 2.1 -- it was updated to Android 2.2 in late September -- so this could be out of date. But we'll keep our fingers crossed in the coming week, just in case.
In case you missed the teaser last week, Motorola's sending out e-mails touting the upcoming Honeycomb-based tablet it'll show off at CES. Needless to say, we're not getting tired of watching this video just yet, and so you can find it again after the break. Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
The good news: Samsung says that Froyo is now available for all Galaxy S phones in the UK. The bad news: You still have to use that bastardized Kies software to download and install, and that's just ridiculous. Still, Froyo is better than no Froyo, but they're really making us work hard for it. Snag it all at the source link. [Samsung via @SamsungUK]
Hey, look at that, more Tablet goodness! It looks like a video has just leaked showcasing Acer's rumored 10 inch Tegra-based Tablet. The video shows off some of the UI, and what appears to be a really slick e-reader and photo viewer application. One more picture and the video after the break! [via engadget, electronista]
Although there has been a leak available for a few days now, Telus customers will be pleased to know the roll out of Android 2.2 (Froyo) for the Samsung Fascinate is rolling out to customers. As noted in our forums, Samsung has updated their device upgrade page to advise users of how, exactly to do the upgrade through Kies. If you're not running the leak already, you'll want to be sure to grab the update and get your Froyo on. [Samsung]
We already knew Android is huge, but this takes it to a whole new level! What you're looking at above sits in a Best Buy store in San Carlos after having been installed there last night. For the moment, it's one of a kind but Google is using the setup as a test to see how well they will do in stores.
The display is a glorious 42 inches of touchscreen Android love and functions by making use of a specially equipped Nexus S with video-out capabilities and even has a working camera. Google did the same for the initial Nexus One launch but unlike that display, this one actually functions just like a real device. Hit the break for a video showing off the display in all its glory.

It's nice to see Dell sticking to the Streak brand, even if this one's going to end up confusing consumers about the OS with the inclusion of a big fat 7 at the end of the name. Something tells me we'll know more come CES, and in between cold beers we'll find time to tell you. So Dude, are you getting a Dell? [Engadget]
It's official, folks -- those changes to the Android Market we've been talking about, and many of you have been seeing already, including the dreaded 15 minute return window, are now Android Market policy. People who have registered as a developer for the Market have received a friendly e-mail from Google explaining all the changes. There's nothing new they have to add, and most of the changes are in the way that applications are listed to help make things a bit better for the consumer, like more and better image previews and AT&T carrier billing. The full announcement follows the break.
That thud you just heard was the sound of my head hitting my desk. Invites apparently already are going out for Sony Ericsson's event at Mobile World Congress in February. And just like last year, it's going to be on the eve of the opening, somewhere in Barcelona. (Last year's event, at Opium Mar, was way cool.) Anyhoo, the invite points to new devices in the Xperia family. Last year we got the X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro (plus a WinMo device).
