Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 delayed in Canada, will now ship Aug. 19

3

Back in June, we reported that both Best Buy and Future Shop were taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1; those orders were originally supposed to ship July 22. According to their websites now, however, the device isn't listed to arrive until Aug. 19. This news is probably disappointing to our Canadian friends, who have been excited to finally be able to get the Tab 10.1 starting tomorrow. Either due to Samsung, Best Buy or Future Shop, you'll have to wait another month.

Zombie bugdroids spotted at Comic-Con

4

If you're headed to the San Diego Comic-Con you'll want to be on the look out for these awesome little fellas. Customized from the Android collectible series these bugdroids are just hanging out waiting to be scooped up and brought home -- although, you'd have to be pretty hard core to lay down $100 for one, but I have no room to talk on that matter since I have quite a few of the originals around my place.

Poll: Would you buy a Nexus S this far into the year?

41

Asked this on Twitter earlier today, and let's put it to you folks: We're more than halfway through the year, and chances are we'll see a new Nexus device -- whatever it may be -- by the end of the year, if Google keeps up with previous schedules. (Though we have no assurances that it will.)

So the question is this: With the possibility of a new Nexus device in the next five or six months, are you willing to shell out for a Samsung Nexus S? It's a mere $99 on contract, but $529 outright.

Is now a good time to buy a Nexus S?

Escape from Robot Factory is enough to make a robot's head spin

4


Youtube link for mobile viewing

This one's at least a wee bit interesting. You're a robot, trying to get out of the robot factory (as all robots are inclined to do, we gather). It's a three-dimensional scroller, but you don't see things from the robot's point of view, which gets a little confusing at times. And the controls are rudimentary at best. But the good news is there's a free version if you wanna check things out. Links are after the break.

Gingerbread leaked for the T-Mobile G2; same build as the version mistakenly released last month

2

Remember the snafu last month where T-Mobile was shipping out warranty-replacement G2s running Gingerbread? Well, some crafty tinkerers have extracted the build and made it available for all to download. This 2.3 update is the same exact version as the one T-Mobile mistakenly shipped out, so though it isn't "official," rest assured that it is the build that big T is working with. No, you don't need root, but yes, there are some bugs that still need squashing, so as always, download at your own risk. Hit the source link to grab the update from T-Mobile's support community.

BlackBerry PlayBook has a newer version of Android than 81% of you

27

Our pals at CrackBerry are in the midst of testing a recently leaked version of the Android Player app for the PlayBook tablet. And guess what: It's running a newer version of Android than some 80 percent of you guys out there. When last we looked, some 18.6 percent of Android devices were running Android 2.3.x. (Honeycomb devices made up less than 1 percent on top of that.)

And RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook? Why, it's running Android 2.3.3, while some 59 percent of you out there are still officially stuck on Froyo, and another 18 percent are on Eclair.

Food for thought.

HTC EVO 3D Video Dock available August 21st

16

We let you know last month that the HTC EVO 3D dock was available for pre-order via Best Buy, but there was no official word on when exactly you'd be able to have it. We're hearing now that August 21 is the day you've been waiting for (assuming you're planning on picking one up) as the official "Video Dock" can be yours for $50 if you wish.  While you're at it you can grab the new Holster and Shield Combo for $25 that same day. And if you're itching to accessorize and don't want to wait a whole month, you can pick up some sweet phone covers from Sprint for $20 starting July 24.
