LauncherPro Hits the Market with New Features and Fixes

One of the more popular home screen replacement applications has received an update to version 0.8.4 and brings some new features, gingerbread optimization and more transition effects. The developer Federico Carnales announced the paid verson, LauncherPro+ will also be available in the market soon. Previously a user would purchase the PLUS version via the paypal link inside the free version. The new Android Market policies no longer allow this. I assume this will only benefit the developer. Currently by avoiding the Android Market he’s bypassing Google’s commission, but I believe more people will purchase the paid version now that its easily available in the market.

Rumor: Google Working on Nexus Tablet?

There is an interesting rumor/line of thought from an article over at unwiredview.com, talking about some conversations and rumors the author has heard concerning the idea that LG is working with Google to release a “Nexus Tablet”, branded by Google itself. The reason the rumors are floating around it seems is because we have not seen the full honeycomb experience yet, and there is conjecture that we will when this Nexus Tablet releases. It is plausible to imagine that Google has some functionality in Honeycomb that we have not seen yet, whether or not it is because they have been holding said functionality back may be a bit of stretch in this writer’s opinion.
