Rogers Samsung Infuse 4G gets priced at $150 by Future Shop

5

Rogers has been on a roll as of late when it comes to updating their Android line-up of devices. Last night in Toronto they held the launch party for the Samsung Infuse 4G and today, Future Shop has outed the pricing of the soon-to-be released device. $149 is what you'll be looking at should you decide to agree to a new 3-year contract but if contracts aren't really your thing, then you'll be looking to hand over $550.  That said; keep in mind the Samsung Galaxy S II is starting to arrive at Bell and Virgin Mobile retail shops all across Canada and only costs $50 more off contract.

Looking to try Slacker Premium Radio out? Although Slacker Radio has a basic free version available for all there is nothing like having on-demand access to Slacker’s whole music library in addition to ad-free customizable radio. Not forgetting the many other great features Slacker offers:

  • Search and listen to specific songs or albums
  • Cache radio stations, albums and playlists to your smartphone so you can listen without a connection (better battery life, no data usage and uninterrupted playback)
  • Create playlists by typing in songs or by adding them while you listen to Slacker Radio stations and even share them with others.
  • View and listen to real-time "top 50" charts for all Slacker genres based on listener and Slacker DJ interaction

T-Mobile MyTouch 4G Slide now available online

2

If you want to get your hands on T-Mobile's MyTouch 4G Slide, and don't want to wait for it to show up in stores on July 27, you can now place your order at T-Mobile website.  The MyTouch 4G Slide (check out the initial review) is HTC's latest tech, thrown into a package with a horizontal sliding qwerty, and one heck of a camera.  It will cost you $200 after contract and a pesky mail-in rebate, or $500 if you want to buy it outright.  My first impressions tell me that it's a great update from the original MyTouch slider, or even the MyTouch 4G.  We've got an ongoing Q&A thread in the forums, and I'll have a full detailed review shortly.  If you're ready to buy, hit the source link and have at it!

New Netflix app runs just fine on Honeycomb tablets

64


Youtube link for mobile viewing

When Lenovo announced the IdeaPad Tablet K1 as the first (and only) Honeycomb tablet to run Netflix, well, you know that just wouldn't stand. Turns out the update that gave as slew of new phones access to streaming movies also indirectly opens it up for other Honeycomb tablets as well. We've got it running just fine on the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

This is the stock Netflix app, pulled from one phone and installed on the tablet. No hackery was involved -- we've never been crazy about people cracking open someone else's app in the first place. But this is pretty much fair game, and we're going to spend the rest of the afternoon watching Phineas and Ferb, or whatever else our preschool-age daughter has polluted our Netflix recommendations with.

Falling Fred is one hell of a gory fun time

14


Youtube link for mobile view

This is simultaneously the best and worst app we've ever seen, pretty much combining two of our three biggest fears. (The third involves forgetting pants.)

Fred's falling. Don't let him get sliced. Or diced. Or smashed. Or lasered. Or any of the 30 things that can separate his head (or other parts) from his body. And look at for the wall, too.

Download links are after the break. Hope you've had lunch already.

Netflix updates its Android app -- and actually includes the update this time

99

 

Let's try this again, shall we? See, when Netflix updated its app listing with more devices this morning, they apparently kinda sorta forgot to actually included the updated app. So, the majority of the two dozen devices listed didn't actually work.

But the updated app is now in the market, folks, so you can use it on any one of these devices:

  • Casio G'zOne Commando C771 with Android 2.2
  • HTC Doubleshot
  • HTC Droid Incredible
  • HTC Droid Incredible 2
  • HTC EVO
  • HTC EVO 3D
  • HTC G2
  • HTC Thunderbolt
  • Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet
  • LG Revolution
  • Motorola Atrix
  • Motorola Droid
  • Motorola Droid X
  • Motorola Droid X2
  • Motorola Droid 2
  • Motorola Droid 3
  • Motorola Droid Bionic
  • Samsung Droid Charge
  • Samsung Epic 4G
  • Samsung Galaxy S
  • Samsung Galaxy S 4G
  • Samsung Fascinate
  • Samsung Nexus S
  • Samsung Nexus S 4G

Oh, except for the Droid Bionic. It's kinda cool that it's on the list already, but there's really no sense in getting all worked up about using Netflix on a phone that you can't have yet.

Download links are after the break.

Thanks, @yankees368!
