Google’s Nexus 4 has certainly proven itself to be golden for Google and Android fans. The mania is not confined to the device itself. Those lucky enough to have one of the devices despite the severe shortage may be looking for some lightweight protection for the smartphone. Google is ready with a solution in the form of some black bumpers to wrap the Nexus 4. The bumpers have been available on the Google Play Store and were shipping to lucky buyers, but are now sold out. If you are interested in grabbing one, you will now have to play the refresh and wait game using the Google Play Store link below.
We’ve been keeping an eye out for the official Nexus 7 cover to become available in the Google Play store and today they finally landed. Only available in dark grey, a new case for your N7 is going to set you back just over $30 depending on your local tax. This includes $19.99 for the unit, $9.99 for 2-day shipping, and a few bucks for uncle Sam. It seems a little pricey after all is said and done but it could very well be worth it to have some custom fitting protection. We will get ours in a few days so stay tuned for some feedback. Heck, if a few of you are interested, I could even throw a quick video together showing you how it looks/works on the tablet. In the meantime, if you already know you want one, hit up the source link below.

It would be a complete understatement to say that Angry Birds has become anything less than a phenomenon. The game has been embedded in so many aspects and components of our lives that even those who have never played it before should be well familiar with the bird flinging and pig crashing game.
Well, Pomplamoose, everyone’s favorite American Indie band has picked up the tune and covered it beautifully for all of you hardcore Angry Birds fans. Check out their cover of the song in a video after the break. And get this, they did it on a Samsung Infuse 4G. It’s difficult enough to get a review unit of the device let alone seeing this thing pop up in a Pomplamoose cover. Did you catch the AT&T logo in the screen shot above? Maybe it’s possible AT&T assisted with the shoot? Not sure, but we love it anyway. Let us know what you think in the comments below. » Read the rest
Check out that above picture, pretty sexy eh? Well bad news is that’s a prototype. The good news is that the creator of that cover is oh-so-close to being able to produce them, he just needs to sell a few more. He’s reached out to TalkAndroid to help him put the word out to the Android community, so that’s what we’re doing. If you don’t like the look of the clear cover, they’re also being offered in red, blue, and yellow. Sales from any color (or lack of color) will help him put these into production. Now these aren’t just some cover’s that some guy has whiddled out of plastic in his garage. These will be injection molded and he’s spent some time on the design as the 3DCAD drawings will show:
So if you’d like to buy one of these and help boost the DIY Android community, I suggest heading over to customevos.com/ and picking one up.
