Earlier this year at Computex, Acer unveiled the Iconia Tab A110 which was also expected to ship with Google?s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. If you weren?t too impressed with the A110 and were thinking of giving it a pass, well here?s some good news as it seems that Acer has announced that the A110 will now be shipping with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean instead. Still no word on when it will be released, but Acer has promised that it will be arriving ?soon?. A bit vague but we guess that will have to do for now.
For those who might have forgotten, the A110 will be powered by NVIDIA?s Tegra-3 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM, a 7? touchscreen display, 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded via microSD and will feature connectivity options such as micro HDMI, micro USB and Bluetooth 3.0. If you were still on the fence, hopefully the inclusion of Google?s latest version of Android helped to sweeten the deal for you.By Ubergizmo.

So it seems that LG?s Optimus G will be making its way into the US market come November, but will it be as the Optimus G or will it be as Google?s next Nexus handset? A few days ago, the Samsung GT-i9260 was spotted in a User Agent Profile which gave rise to the speculation that this could be the next Nexus device. However this wasn?t not a guarantee as Google has not officially announced it yet, but according to the folks at Android and Me, they have heard that LG is expected to produce a Nexus handset this year and given that the Optimus G will be their greatest smartphone to date, it has been speculated that perhaps the Optimus G could be the next Nexus phone.
Interestingly this does not rule Samsung out as according to earlier rumors, it has been suggested that there could be multiple Nexus handsets this year from LG, Samsung and Sony, so having both LG and Samsung make Nexus devices isn?t too ludicrous, unless of course the earlier rumors were wrong. Either way we?ll be taking this with a grain of salt for now and suggest you do the same, but what do you guys think? If true, do you think LG should make the Optimus G their Nexus handset, or do you think it would be better for them to release two separate devices instead?By Ubergizmo.

It wasn?t too long ago when LG Korea officially presented to the world their latest and possibly greatest Android smartphone to date ? the LG Optimus G. While it will be available for those living in Korea starting from next week, those in other countries can expect it in October, but does that include the US? Given that US carriers have a habit of tweaking phones to their specifications in terms of software (and sometimes hardware to a certain extent), it has been reported that the LG Optimus G will only be making its appearance in the US in November.
No word on which carrier will be picking it up, but given its 4G LTE connectivity, we guess either AT&T, Verizon or Sprint (or possibly all three) will be offering it. T-Mobile has yet to roll out their LTE network so perhaps they might be out of the running for now. Either way hopefully there will be more details to be had later today where both LG and Qualcomm will be taking to the stage in NYC, so stay tuned! In the meantime you can check out our hands-on of the device here.By Ubergizmo. Related articles: LG Optimus G could also be the Optimus Nexus?

If you own a PlayStation-certified Sony Xperia Android handset, it looks like your wallets might be on the verge of getting lighter. Sony has officially announced that come 3rd of October, they will be launching the PlayStation Store for PlayStation Mobile. Basically this will give users with PlayStation-certified devices access to the store where they will be able to purchase PlayStation Mobile games. Not everyone will be getting access to the store at launch and only countries such as the US, Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Australia will be the lucky few.
We expect more countries to be added to the list at a later date, but for those living in the countries listed above, you will have 30 games to choose from to download, with more hopefully being added in the future. Interestingly for those living in Japan where Fujitsu and Sharp smartphones are abundant, Sony has also revealed that selected Fujitsu and Sharp smartphones will also be granted PlayStation certification so you guys will also be able to access the PlayStation Store without having to own a Sony device.By Ubergizmo.

We?re not sure how many of you guys actually use docks with your iPhone when charging, or you just lie them flat on the table, but for those who do use docks and you?re wondering if Apple might be making one themselves for the iPhone 5, well you might be disappointed. In an email apparently sent by Phil Schiller, Apple?s SVP of Marketing, he stated that there were no plans to introduce a dock for the iPhone 5. Apparently people who want to dock their iPhones already do so via third-party devices like speaker docks or clock systems. In any case we expect that this void will be filled by third-party manufacturers, but for those who are pretty particular about getting officially-made accessories, it looks like you?re out of luck. In any case for those who pre-ordered early, the iPhone 5 should be making its way to your homes in no time, so we guess it?s time to start accessory shopping!By Ubergizmo.

While Apple?s iPhone has no problems taking pretty good photographs, we?re sure that photographers out there would like to get as much out of the camera as possible, probably in the hopes that it will be good enough to remove the need for them to bring compact cameras while on the go. While that will depend from photographer to photographer, here?s a little accessory that you might be interested in checking out which should help with the overall quality of your images. Schneider Kreuznach has announced at Photokina 2012 the B+W Smart-Pro which is basically a polarizer for the iPhone?s camera.
This filter is small enough to fit on top of the iPhone?s camera lens and is clicked into place via a magnet, allowing for quick and easy readjusting. Unfortunately based on the demo video, it seems that the lens might be too big and does block the flash on the iPhone when attached, so perhaps using it in conjunction with flash might not be possible. Either that or you will have to adjust it in such a way that it won?t block the flash unit. The B+W Smart-Pro is expected to provide photographers with eliminated reflections, saturated and intense colors along with a better contrast ratio. No word on pricing but it is expected to be available come winter 2012. [Product page (German)]By Ubergizmo.
