Google Chrome has finally hit Android mobile devices, well, those that happen to be lucky enough to run Android 4.0 at least.

Still, what is unique about the WikiPad is that it is the first Android 4.0 ICS tablet to feature glasses-free 3D touch and an interesting gaming dock attachment.

CES is just around the corner and as expected, we are seeing a flood of announcements and teasers about what’s going to be showcased at the event. Sony Ericsson’s pre-CES teaser campaign started earlier with their messages on their Facebook and Google pages. Now the company has released yet another teaser, a few close-ups of an HD-capable smartphone.
Asus is updating its Transformer Prime firmware from 22.214.171.124 to build 126.96.36.199 which is meant to address several problems identified by the company. First, it attempts to "enhance GPS speed" by automatically downloading satellite location tables over WiFi.

Phandroid has leaked pictures apparently showing that Huawei is working on putting Ice Cream Sandwich on their MediaPad (branded at T-Mobile as Springboard, between $180 and $250 on contract, $450 without).

What is missing from this list are "older" Samsung devices, namely the original Samsung Galaxy Tab and Samsung Galaxy S; these are not getting Samsung-flavored ICS.
This is a very early custom build of CyanogenMod 9 (Android 4.0.3 out of Android Open Source Project) that didn't get its own fork at CyanogenMod repositaries just yet. Adventurous users and fans of the original Motorola Droid may get a first glimpse of ICS goodness on their phones by using a download link here. Make sure to follow the discussion at XDA-Developers if you read this news late, as the new builds pop up constantly.

Much hype surrounds Android’s newest OS version; Ice Cream Sandwich.

Both the Xperia arc S and the Xperia neo V come loaded with Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread and they're initially being sold through Sony Store locations across the country.
It turns out that "Surrogates", staring Bruce Willis, might not have been just a movie after all. For those who haven’t seen it, in the near future when people don’t interact with the environment themselves and instead have human-looking robots they control remotely do everything for them. Telesar V might not be nearly as sophisticated as the robots in Surrogates, yet the concept is still pretty similar. Telestar V is a telexistence robot system being researched by a group at the Keio University led by Professor Tachi. The idea behind the technology is having a robot you can remotely control.
At the same time, this is anything but far fetched and the lack of physical buttons (or even capacitive touch buttons) lends itself to the ICS format.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia ray will be launching exclusively through Telus in Canada starting on November 2. Not surprisingly, it does all the things you'd expect from an Android phone from Sony.
It has been officially confirmed by Google that the Ice Cream Sandwich update to Android will be offered to the Nexus S “in weeks.”
Naturally, the Xperia Pro is geared toward a slightly different kind of customer than the Xperia Play. Instead of slide-out gaming controls, it gets a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
Whatever the case, the Sony Ericsson txt pro handles most of the basic smartphone-like usage needs, like social networking by way of the unique Friends application.
IBM is working on a new class of computer chips that are designed to imitate the human brain's abilities for perception, action and cognition. The chips’ processing power is similar to that of Watson. IBM hopes to use these chips in “cognitive computers.” These computers would learn through experience instead of being programmed. Just like the human brain.
I play a lot of games on my smartphone. The trouble is that a smartphone was never really designed for serious video game playing, and that's where the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is supposed to come into the picture. It's PlayStation certified and is purpose-built to give gamers what they want while still doing the usual Android smartphone thing too.
My experience with the Sony Ericsson Xperia line of smartphones hasn't exactly been stellar, but that doesn't mean SE isn't trucking ahead with new additions to the line. I have the Xperia Play in hand and will have that review posted soon, but there's also the new Xperia ray and Xperia active coming down the chute too.
Researchers with the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching, Germany have managed to store quantum information in a single atom. The researchers wrote the quantum state of single particles of light, called photons, into a rubidium atom and read it out again after a certain storage time. This technique could potentially be used to design powerful quantum computers and to network them with each other across large distances.
Our friend Chris at pyroelectro.com sent in this DIY sentry gun turret that uses a simple airsoft gun and a tupperware container found at your local big box store.
Just because you want to get an electric car doesn't mean you have to leave "fun" behind. Check out this video of the upcoming BMW i3 in action. It's a fully electric city car that also happens to be rear-wheel-drive. You know what that means?
Instead of just a few spy photos, we've managed to find three spy videos. The BMW i8, which you may have previously known as Vision EfficientDynamics, appears to be a two-door super coupe that will likely compete against the likes of an Audi R8 and other similar vehicles.
The original PSP was only offered in black. Then, they came out with certain special editions and other iterations that outfitted the portable gamer in a variety of colors and designs. The Xperia Play is barely out of the gate, but Sony Ericsson is already breaking out the paint bucket.
We were all thumbs over the possibility of a PlayStation Phone for a very long time. We had the teaser stuff during the Super Bowl, but now Sony Ericsson has officially come forward with an official announcement for the Xperia Play.
Fingerprints. Retinas. Snowflakes. No two are the same. Now, in the wake of a multi-million dollar pirated electronics bust in L.A., researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute near Munich have developed a way to give embedded components of electronics their own physically unique properties in a step towards ending electronic counterfeiting.
Yes, the lower case part of the name is the official name. Sony Ericsson wants to be all hip and cool like that, not unlike a certain iCompany. In addition to the Xperia Play (PSPhone), SE also showed off at least two other entrants to the Xperia family at Mobile World Congress.
Sony Ericsson is expanding their GreenHeart collection of environmentally-friendly phones with an exclusive Canadian release of the Cedar.

We already know all of the most important specs for the upcoming Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play, but we're missing one very important tidbit: which carrier is getting it? Well, it looks like one retailer already knows.
Well, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play is everything we thought it was going to be... except it comes with human thumbs.
As promised, or most likely closer to, as rumored. Dating back to last summer it seemed that Sony Ericsson had decided to invest its interest more deeply in the area of Windows Phone 7. When rumors first arose, the Swedish collaborative venture only passively mentioned that it was looking into the new Microsoft mobile OS as a possible platform for its devices. However, as shipments and demand began to decline, Sony Ericsson must have started to explore new opportunities in an attempt to draw interest to its products in a saturated smartphone market.
I’ve eaten tomatoes in the Mediterranean grown without pesticides that were bigger than my fist, and that were so sweet, so juicy and ripe, you could eat them like apples. My current tomato reality includes scrounging supermarkets back in North America, looking for ones that might resemble the glorious tomatoes of Europe. Without luck, I bite into tomato after tomato, tasting nothing but plastic and wax.
We're still referring to the yet unreleased Palm tablet as the HP PalmPad, but the Opal and Topaz names have made their way onto the Internet too. The smaller of the two is the Opal with its seven-inch 1024x768 resolution TFT LCD, while the larger of the two is the Topaz with its nine-inch display of unknown resolution.
XPERIA X10. XPERIA Arc. XPERIA Play. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that Sony Ericsson is very much cozying up with Google Android, but now the company has made it official. I wouldn't go so far as to say SE is putting a ring on it, but they are sounding pretty committed.
The KFA2 GeForce GTX460 graphics card is the first desktop GPU that has taken things wireless. This multi-antenna'd beast can transmit HD video over thin air with WHDI, effectively creating a new bread of media centers for your home entertainment setup, or one crazy ass gaming system. Five antennas extend out the rear of the PCI Express card that will transmit 1080p 60Hz video over a 40MHz channel in the 5GHz unlicensed band.
If you are either near-sighted, far-sighted, or maybe both, you might think that vision technology is moving a little too slow for your liking and having to wear bifocal lenses are cramping your style. The truth is, bifocals and progressive lenses are absolutely old tech, very last decade, and that is why PixelOptics has chosen to take the road less travelled with a much needed 21th century upgrade.
Though it's only got one lens, no projector and isn't an all-around mind-blow like some of Sony's other announcements at this year's CES, their cellphone division is following the lead and pushing the envelope of just what in-phone cameras are capable of.
