Hear ye, hear ye, citizens of the smartphone world: The entities that lead our land are stuck in some archaic ways -- and their foolishness is causing us all to suffer. I speak of the carrier exclusive -- a futile and dated concept that some carriers insist on clinging to at the expense of pretty much everyone involved. The practice harkens back to the days of the original Motorola Droid -- and the early iPhones, too -- when the smartphone market had but a few marquee devices and people were willing to change networks for the chance to use one.
Since our last “Current Phone” poll, almost 9 months ago, we have seen a number of impressive devices land on U.S. soil. HTC launched the One Series and the Incredible 4G LTE , Samsung gave us the Galaxy S3 , and Motorola…well, they haven’t done much. But there is a good chance that many of you switched to something since last December , so we wanted to ask again. I get the feeling that the Galaxy Nexus is going to dominate this, and that’s not a bad thing. It’s tough to go wrong with stock Android.
This morning it was reported by Droid-Life , BGR , and pretty much anyone else with a WordPress account ( myself included ) that the new “ Google Nexus ” (Prime) was going to be launched exclusively on Verizon’s LTE network. No love for Sprint , T-Mobile , or AT&T . This fit in nicely with the rumors that we’ve heard about floating around over the last month.
By JR Raphael ( @jr_raphael ) I wrote earlier about Amazon's new Kindle Fire and how the gadget is truly more of an Amazon media device than a Google Android tablet. From the interface to the app ecosystem and service selection, Amazon has effectively created a whole new platform that just happens to be based on the Android code. Something else occurred to me, though: Amazon's Kindle Fire app setup, in which the device depends on Amazon's own app store rather than Google's Android Market, may actually end up costing you extra money if you're an existing Android user.

Dear Community members, Let me start this open letter by stating the obvious: 99% of you don’t have any idea of who I am and/or what I am doing here: I am not a developer, I am not someone that spends times flashing his devices (Yes, I never rooted any of my Android devices), I am not on top of everything that happens in Android’s world. I am just a user, like millions out there, that have an Android device because they love Android.
If you're sick of shooting birds from slingshots and would prefer the feathery foes to be on the receiving side of damage, then Shoot the Birds from Infinite Dreams is a game you should definitely check out. You play the part of a pumpkin-headed, crossbow wielding hero who hates birds and the problems that they cause, ready to execute them all with a rain of arrows. Judging by the teaser video, the gameplay looks simple enough to figure out, while the graphics and animations look very well done and easy on the eyes.
