Update: Not so much. The app's been pushed to January.

This morning we showed you the first shots of the Android version of Comcasts's Xfinity app, but we didn't have a date for when it may be released. Judging by the pic you see here, it might be as soon as Friday. And the breakdown of features includes:

  • Voicemail
  • Universal Address book
  • TV listings/guide
  • On Demand
  • myDVR Manager

Sprint Samsung Transform review

9

A surprisingly decent entry-level Android phone

Take the Epic 4G, slim it down and slow it down a tad, and you've got the mid-level Samsung Transform on Sprint. Hang on, hang on. Keep reading. That's not to say this is a lesser phone that should be dismissed. On the contrary. The Transform is a simpiler -- and less expensive -- Android phone -- than much of what's out there today.

Let's take hold hands and take a look, after the break.

Droid 2 Case Review: Body Glove Snap-On Case

7

When looking for a case for my Motorola Droid 2, the Body Glove Snap-On Case immediately caught my eye as one of the top contenders. Cases are generally one of the accessories that I am most hesitant to purchase due to my compulsive personality and I tend to overanalyze the design, protection, bulk and comfort. Body Glove is a trusted brand that provides a lot of protection and generally tries to keep the bulk of the case to a minimum so I decided to give it a shot. Let's look at it further after the break.

Nexus S teaser video now available for your viewing pleasure

33

Yesterday during the Web 2.0 summit we got a brief look at Google CEO Eric Schmidt showing off Gingerbread -- Android 2.3 as well as, the now infamous "unannounced" device also known as the Nexus S. While it's time on stage was brief, it was more than enough to have us wanting to see more. A few goodies were noted after Eric stepped off stage as well. Remember that "blink off" video of the screen we previously saw powering down? It's pretty awesome. What's even more awesome is that it's still included, as noted by the folks over at Engadget. Hit the break for the full embed of the video. Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

Google experimenting Goggles integration with key advertisers

6

Google has announced that they'll be ramping up their Google Goggles efforts with some key advertisers. While it's still only in the experimental stages, Google has signed up Buick, Disney, Diageo, T-Mobile and Delta Airlines to do market testing of Google Goggles. Soon, we'll be seeing "Goggles enabled" ads spread across movie posters, print ads and other marketing media. 

The goal of course is to have users recognize the Goggles enabled items and make use of their devices to explore the online destinations being offered. Those destinations could be say, an interactive ad from Disney or Buick as shown above. As it's still experimental it might be a while before we see any show up but if you spot some let us know. Download links for Google Goggles and video of the experiment are after the break. [Google Mobile Blog]

Samsung Galaxy S available now on Cellular South

5


The Samsung Galaxy S is available today on Cellular South. This version of the phone resembles the Fascinate on Verizon. Though Bing Maps and Bing Search are pre-loaded on the phone, this device is centered around Google's apps. The Galaxy S is the fourth Android device to hit the regional carrier in the past 12 months, giving consumers good choices when deciding on a handset.

If you're a Cellular South customer and have been in search of a solid Android handset, Samsung's Galaxy S is an attractive option. The phone is available for $199 (after a $50 mail-in rebate) with a 2-year service contract. [Business Wire]

Comcast Xfinity Android app first look

16

Waiting on the Comcast Xfinity Android app and tired of seeing it on the iPhone and iPad? No worries. We've got you covered. Here it is running on the venerable Sprint Hero. We're told it's plenty snappy and has the myDVR management built in, which is nice.

We still don't know exactly when it'll be available for Android, but it's currently in testing, so that's a good sign. We've got more pics of it in action after the break. [Xfinity] Thanks, anon!
