NOOKcolor Overclocked to 950MHz

This image has no alt text

The little eReader that could, the NOOKcolor from Barnes & Noble, has taken yet another leap forward from its humble book reading roots into the world of full-fledged Android tablet goodness. After getting root and recovery, the NOOKcolor has received a new flashable kernel that overclocks the device to 950MHz stable. The kernel, which goes by the name “She’s a Screamer,” seems to max the NC out at around 1GHz.

Who could be responsible? None other than someone from XDA, one Geniusdog254. If you want to take your NOOKcolor to the next level you can check out his posts over at XDA found at the source link below.

Samsung Galaxy Tab On Sale for $549.99 through Bell Canada until January 27

This image has no alt text

While $549.99 doesn’t seem like too low a price compared to recent price cuts to the Samsung Galaxy Tab in the US, it’s still $100 less than the Tab retails for normally on Canada’s Bell. That’s right, we’re talking Canadian dollars here! Now through January 27th the Galaxy Tab has been rolled back from its normal price of $649.99.

Better tablets wait on the horizon, so it’s understandable why prices have been falling as fast as dead birds from the sky, but the Galaxy Tab remains the best choice if you want an Android tablet and just can’t wait.

Gingerbread Getting Google Music Sync?

This image has no alt text

Google Music was first teased back at Google I/O 2010, but little developments have been made since then. Countless times we have heard the service was near launch, but this latest bit of info gives us hope that it might actually go live before Google I/O 2011. You’ll see in the above screenshot a device running Gingerbread with a “Sync Music” option within the accounts and sync dialog. The image comes courtesy of GizmoFusion, and suggests that music integration will be as deep as contact, Facebook, and calendar sync.

Still, a lot of questions remain and the screenshot should be taken with a grain of salt. Where did this build of Gingerbread come from? Is it actually the Android 2.4 build we have recently been hearing of? What do you all think?

Newegg launches Newegg Mobile application for Android

Newegg, the California-based online retailer of all things electronic (and by far one of my favorite tech shopping sites), has announced today the release of their Newegg Mobile Application. Newegg mobile is pretty full-featured for a 1.0 release, including account support, wish lists, quickly view daily deals, shell-shocker deal of the day, and the ability search for whatever awesome product you may be looking for using text entry.

The Newegg Mobile application also features a barcode scanner so you can easily see if the gadget you’re drooling over at Target or Best Buy can be found for cheaper on Newegg’s site. If it is in fact cheaper on Newegg, Newegg Mobile supports full in-app purchases so you can buy whatever you want from wherever you are.

Since Newegg Mobile is a 1.0 release, Newegg is looking for your input as to how they can best improve their application in future releases. If you decide to download the app, be sure to give them any feedback on their Facebook page.

Newegg Mobile is now available for free on the Android market and supports all flavors of Android.

UPDATE - An early preview version of Newegg Mobile was made available on 12/24, though Newegg has waited until today to annouce the application on their Facebook page, suggesting it may now be ready for primetime. (Thanks, Lament!)
