Video look at the ASUS Transformer Prime finds YouTube, drooling Yet?

If you are as excited about the Transformer Prime as we are, then you must be anxious to see the device. There have been a number of images pulled from the teaser video that ASUS released. Then we saw a little bit of how it looked live from All Things D. That still doesn’t quench our thirst for this tablet though. We want hands on video time with a real look at the device.

Well, someone has provided us with that, sort of. At least it is a hands on demo of how awesome Shadow Gun is played on it. They also provided a number of various photos for your viewing pleasure. Sadly due to the nature of my current situation I wasn’t able to produce any more than the one you see via Phandroid. You can hit up the source link below to locate more images.

Check out the video real quick though -

This is easily going to be the tablet of the year. I don’t think anyone will be able to compete with ASUS on quality, updates and just plain awesomeness. How many of you guys are waiting to get your grubby little fingers on one of these?

Boost Mobile to tack $5 onto monthly Android Unlimited plans beginning October 6th

Does the Samsung Transform Ultra quench your thirst for a prepaid high-performance Android handset? That’ll be an extra $5 a month, please. Boost Mobile sneakily attached the announcement to the end of this morning’s press release like it was a Congressional bill, casually mentioning that its monthly Android Unlimited plans will see the additional charge as of October 6th. Grandfathered customers won’t be affected — at least, not until they upgrade to a new Android device, at which time they’ll also be assessed the extra cost. Times they are a-changin’, it seems. Head below to see the full announcement.

Mysterious BlackBerry surfaces on forum, possibly 9900 prototype (update: a limited luxury edition?)

Mystery BlackBerry

Whoever got a hold of this device over at MaxPDA seems to think it’s the BlackBerry Bold 9980. We’re more inclined to believe it’s a prototype of the still reasonably fresh 9900, given that it sports the same battery as well as the same layout for ports, sensors and buttons. But who knows, it could also just be an elaborate KIRF. Whatever it is though, it sure is interesting looking (to put it politely). It’s boxy, sports sharp lines, an out-of-character silver front and a black, textured back plate. Oddest of all though, is the word “proceeding” emblazoned in large letters across the top of the device. We’ve got one more pic after the break but, if that doesn’t quench your thirst, there’s tons more at the source link.

Update: We’ve just spoken to the Bejing-based source of this eccentric handset, and it turns out that he’s already sold three of these prototypes for an undisclosed price. Furthermore, the seller claims that this “9980″ will actually be making its way to the market in a limited quantity once it gets the diamond treatment — hopefully something slightly more subtle than Stuart Hughes’ offerings.

TV Show Reccomendation App “Peel” Hits Android

Looking for some great TV shows to watch, but tired of all the same old stuff? Thanks to the new app for Android dubbed “Peel”, your entertainment thirst may be soon quenched. Originally for iOS, the app takes the shows you like, and – quite simply – tells you what else you might like. While the iOS version came complete with $99 IR blasting hardware to hook up to your television, we’re not seeing that on the Android side of things… yet. According to Peel:

The Peel fruit will support the Android app in the near future. FYI: The original iPhone app launched in September 2010, while the fruit launched this May. The large majority of Peel users utilize the app on its own. The Android app will be integrated much sooner though.

So stay on the straight and narrow, Peel lovers, and you’ll get that full-fledged experience you’ve been waiting for yet. Make sure to leave us your thoughts in the comments below!

Extent offers up all-you-can-eat gaming on your Android device for cheap

Tired of paying out upwards of $5, even $10 for a good quality game? Also tired of lite versions of games that, while free, simply don’t quench that gaming thirst? Software company Extent think they have the answer, and they call it GameTanium Mobile.

The service offers up a buffet-style of gaming choices, following a very Netflix-esque profit model. For $4.99 / month, you can gobble up all the games available to you through the service, which (at the moment) is just over 75 options large. While most of the options seem to pertain mostly to extremely casual gamers (Treasures of Montezuma and Farm Frenzy), there are some racing games, even the fairly popular Parachute Panic.

The launch of the service takes place today. While you can get it as a standalone app / service through their website, the final goal of the company seems to be partnerships with carriers. Be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments.

ASUS ‘PadFone’ to be the final name of the phone-docking tablet?

PadFone. Well, as silly as it sounds, the name sure speaks for itself. Unearthed by our friends over at Pocketnow, this USPTO trademark document was filed by ASUS merely four days ago. Such timing suggests that this could very well be the final name of the company’s eccentric “pad or phone” combo, which is to be unveiled at Computex next week. As expected, no specifics are detailed in this application, but it does mention “electronic pens for computer touch screens” — possibly hinting that the PadFone will be compatible with N-Trig’s DuoSense or similar stylus technology.

Alas, that’s all we have for now until ASUS lifts the curtain on Monday, but let us point you to Notebook Italia’s brilliant mock-up to quench your thirst for the time being — we, too, suspect that the phone would slide onto the back of its companion tablet, hence the bump. That said, do bear in mind that this phone is already proven to be not as tacky looking, but is likely closer to a full-fledged Android handset. Anyhow, check out the artist’s impressions after the break.

Update: Oh hey, remember Windows SideShow? Good times.
