Hey guys, this is Ashlei, and here's what's news.

Ever lose your phone? I don't mean misplace it. I mean actually lose it. On a bus. In a cab. At that club you shouldn't have been in? And you know darn well the chances of it ending up in a good samaritan's hands are far and few between? Well, there are location apps available with a desktop interface. But what if you hadn't installed one on your phone? That's when you turn to Plan B. The location app you install after you lose your phone. Plan B lets you install the app remotely from your desktop. And by texting locate to your phone it'll help you track it down, even if it's in transit, and even if your phone's GPS is off. It's like a Lojack app to get your cell phone back. I'd call that pretty freakin' cool.

Next up, the last of the major social media giants has finally reached the Android market. After about four months of beta, the official client for LinkedIn has arrived. Great news for over a hundred million members. The app features six main components, although looking down the comments on it, so far there's plenty of room for improvement and growth. But LinkedIn 1.0 is off to a good start.

And last, more tablet news for you. Two names from computers' early days are
entering the tablet arena. Amiga and Packard Bell have released their latest and upcoming offerings. Amiga rolled out a pair of Android 2.2 tablets in 7 and 10 inch versions. Specs on the Expedia line of tablets are nearly identical to the Galaxy Tab. The 7 inch model sells for 299, and the 10 inch version goes for 449. Both are available for purchase now. Packard Bell announced plans to offer a slightly more powerful experience with a 10.1 inch Honeycomb powered tablet they've coined the Liberty Tab. It'll be a full featured tablet with a 1280x800 display, 5 megapixel back camera, and 2 megapixel camera in front, and will boast the NVidia Tegra 2 chipset.

And that's it for now. This has been Ashlei for DroidNerds, the hot spot for what Android's got.
