There's no doubt that today is iPad day, but if you're looking for an Android tablet, you could do worse than Sony's Tablet S, with its quirky "folded magazine" design. Today UK retailers Currys, PC World and Dixons -- all part of the Dixons Stores Group -- have cut the Tablet S's price by £100,...

The T-Mobile G-Slate is in the midst of getting an OTA update to version 10p, which will bring security fixes, USB controller support, and a fix for an Android Market (Google Play?) update problem.

The Honeycomb update for the Vizio VTAB1008 looks like it's rolling out a bit broader, bringing the VTab to version V.I.A. Plus 2.0 and Android version 3.2.1.

Camera ICS+ brings Ice Cream Sandwich camera to non ICS phones

  The stock Ice Cream Sandwich camera application is pretty nice. Clean and simple interface, really easy to use, and of course that built in panorama mode is awesome. A developer by the name of Moblynx has taken the stock app, and tweaked it ever so slightly to add some nice extra features. Up...

Google Books app update sneaks into the Market

While it may not be the most popular application among the Android faithful, Google Books is still a pretty solid e-reading app. A small update has sneaked out into the Market today, although at present it doesn't seem to be showing up in your my apps -- kind of like how YouTube went un-noticed. ...

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus gets a bugfix update

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus Android tablet has a small bugfix update available. No real idea of what's new, other than "software and stability improvements," but the update takes half of forever to apply, which is a little surprising given that it's only a 19.38-megabyte download. We'll keep an...

Sony Tablet S finally rooted thanks to software exploit

Sony Tablet P started life as a wallet, almost ran Windows

Sony's Honeycomb-powered clamshell device, the Tablet P, isn't what you'd call a conventional Android tablet. So it should come as no surprise that it had a fittingly unconventional path to release, with a variety of different sizes and form factors being considered before everything was finalized...

Late night poll: What version of Android are you running?

We know what Google tells us about the number of devices on each platform.  We can also read server logs and get a pretty good idea of the versions of Android hitting the site.  But what better way to find out what versions of Android you guys are running than to ask?  We're not interested in the...
