Although it's been a long time coming, the Acer Iconia Tab A500 is now hitting some store shelves -- and one of those stores, as announced today is OfficeMax. Wasting no more time, OfficeMax has made the Android 3.0 Honeycomb powered tablet available today for $449.99.

"We are excited to offer Acer's new Iconia Tab A500 in all OfficeMax's retail locations and online," said Ryan Vero, EVP and Chief Merchandising Officer for OfficeMax. "Its light-weight, slim design and exceptional operating platform is designed for customers who prefer a smaller-sized tablet.

Sprint now touting EVO 4G 'with Android 2.3' [Updated]

67

Update: And we just got the official word from Sprint:

It was mistakenly posted on Sprint.com that HTC EVO 4G with Android 2.2, Gingerbread, was available through our sale channels. We apologize for any confusion. HTC EVO 4G currently uses Android 2.2, Froyo, but we plan to upgrade to Android 2.3 as soon as we can.

Original: We've got no doubt that Android 2.3 is coming the for Sprint EVO 4G -- we've been rocking a leaked build for a month or so now. But might it finally be nearing release?

Sprint's started listing the EVO 4G as "Now with Android 2.3." That mean it's shipping with the Gingerbread build? Or is the update about to roll out? Is it just a typo? News at 11, folks.

Ghosttown music discovery app hits the Android Market

6

There's no shortage of music apps out there these days but a new one called Ghosttown has just hit the Android Market and is looking for a new audience. Having tested it out a bit before writing this up, it's looking pretty promising for the most part. Use of Ghosttown is free, with ad support but in case you don't fancy ads it's just $0.99 for the full version without ads.

The concept behind Ghosttown is a simple one. Fire it up and search for music you wish to hear. Be it by song, artist or album. It'll go out and scour the web for you to bring you the best results possible and present them to you. From the music it finds, you can create playlists as well mark songs as favorites so that they are always easily found and ready for your listening pleasure.

Not all is perfect in Ghosttown though, since it uses the interwebs to track down music, I did find that once or twice it simply just found samples of songs I was looking for rather then full versions. No big deal but worth noting for those of you who may be looking to give it a go. Jump on past the break for some more screenshots and the download link.

Sony Ericsson introduces Xperia Play multimedia dock

4

Sony Ericsson has announced the availability of the DK300 multimedia dock for its PlayStation-certified Xperia Play. Thanks to the magic of molded plastic and connector ports, the DK300 allows you to charge your phone while easily running its sound output to external speakers via the included 3.5mm jack.

Unfortunately, though, there's still no HDMI connectivity -- for that, you'll have to look towards the Play's sister phone, the Xperia Arc. Hit the source link for more information, along with a quick video tour.

LG officially outs the Genesis -- three weeks after we did

8

Looks like we had that one nailed, eh? Some three weeks after we broke the news that the LG Genesis is coming to US Cellular (and then followed up with the complete specs list), LG's listed the phone on its official site. Still no word on when the Android 2.2 clamshell -- which at one point was headed to Verizon -- is coming to the regional carrier. But the fact that LG has US Cellular listed means it's definitely more likely than not.

Stay tuned for pricing and availability, folks.

T-Mobile's new 'Monthly4G' plans offer high-speed data without a contract

23

T-Mobile today announced its new “Monthly4G” plans, a new no-contract option for its 4G customers. There are two plans to choose from, both with unlimited voice, text, and web. The first, priced at $50/month, offers 100 MB at 4G speeds, the second offers 5 GB at $70/month. The plans are throttled, which means that once you hit your limit, you won't be paying more, but instead you'll find your speeds slowed for the remainder of the month. Interesting note: that 5 GB plan is $10 cheaper than T-Mobile's current two-year contracted unlimited plan, AND it offers 3 more GBs per month. Great to see that T-Mobile won't be nickel and diming people for every additional GB you use, though since most of us eat 5 GBs for breakfast, it'd be nice to see some higher caps.

T-Mobile also announced new unlimited family plans, ranging from $120/month for 200GB at full speed to $220/month for 10 GBs at full speed. Hit the source link for the full press releases.
