New AT&T video walks us through the Atrix 4G

17

Despite having taken some wind out of the Motorola Atrix 4G's sales with its recently announced pricing, AT&T is still doing its marketing push. The latest comes to us courtesy of the AT&T YouTube channel, where they walk us through one minute of Motorola Atrix 4G goodness. When all is said and done, we're still certain the device is a great addition to the AT&T lineup, but we'd be foolish to not suggest the pricing has caused many folks to look elsewhere. It's quite alright, AT&T, if you want to adjust that pricing. We won't mind, I assure you. [YouTube]

Android Remote for µTorrent 3.0 Alpha now available

11

While there are quite a few torrent clients and torrent remote control apps in the Android Market, Bittorrent has never directly released an application to interface with your µTorrent installation. That is, until now. The official µTorrent remote app has just been released to the Android Market and is available for download. Keeping in mind, it's not a full blown client but rather a remote for your already existing installed client on your computer it does have some nice features built into it.

  • Check the status of a download directly from your Android smartphone
  • Add, pause or remove µTorrent downloads on your computer
  • µTorrent remote registers as a .torrent handler so you can browse and add torrents just as if you were on your PC at home.
  • Start, pause or remove µTorrent downloads in progress on your computer
  • Update and add torrents from RSS subscriptions
  • Transfer, save and play any completed file from your PC right to your device.

Bittorrent does have a full blown client in the works but for now they are asking users to report any feedback they may have regarding just the remote application. You can find the download link right after the break. [Bittorrent]

CyanogenMod 7-based ROM now available for the Samsung Galaxy Tab

19

Now this is awesome! Samsung Galaxy Tab owners can finally get their hands on a CyanogenMod 7 build for their devices courtesy of Technomancer over at XDA-Developers. While the build is still rather buggy, most basic functions do indeed work. You may not want to make it your everyday ROM as of yet but considering the progress being put towards it being a stable build is happening rather quickly it's certainly something to keep your eye on that's for sure. You can hit up the source link for the full details. Anyone going to be loading this bad boy up and testing it out? [XDA- Developers]

Xperia Play demo booth images leak

1

 

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 already been leaked), 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]

Rogue Grand Rapids Best Buy store outs launch dates for Thunderbolt, Xoom

19

Well, how about that. A single Best Buy store's Facebook page appears to confirm the news we broke a week ago -- the HTC Thunderbolt will be available Feb. 14. Also note that the Motorola Xoom Honeycomb tablet is supposedly available Feb. 24 -- another date that's certainly been making the rounds.

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]

HTC Inspire 4G system dump available

5

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]
