It’s the coming of the cheaper Android tablets, once more.

The cheap ‘ol Android tablet for $250? Pretty much. With an update headed to users of the Nook Color, those owners will have access to Android 2.2 FroYo, Flash support, real email and calendar, page turning animations (like iPad). However, each app has to be customized by its developer for the Nook Color, and Barnes & Noble has to approve every single one (125 apps launch today, like Pulse and even Angry Birds, but no Twitter or Facebook).
Want to sign-up for updates about the HTC Sensation 4G, which in extremely sensational (at least in HTC’s opinion, but we think it’s pretty cool, too)? Well, the sign-up page has just gone live on Easter (if you celebrate it). Now let’s hope the June 8th launch is real, and hope for higher-quality news next week. Via: HTC

This is just perfect. The AppleCore, an accessory that takes whatever long, annoying cord and turns it into a short object ranges in price from $2-5$, making it practically nothing. Genius little thing, eh?
