Archos now selling 35 Home Connect radio for $150
The Archos 35 Home Connect Internet radio introduced mid-year has now gone on sale. The Android-powered device uses Wi-Fi to access Internet radio stations thanks to the included TuneIn Radio Pro app. There is also a built-in alarm clock, giving users the choice to wake up to nature sounds, an MP3 playlist, or a preselected radio station.
Nook for Android ready for tablets
As promised, Barnes & Noble on Friday put out a version of Nook for Android (free, Market) optimized for Android tablets. The new version takes advantage of the larger screen both for reading as well as browsing the book library and store. Unusually, the app isn't just optimized for Android 3.x slates like the Motorola Xoom but also for Android 2.x models, many of which are seven-inch designs like the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
