With a price tag like that, the Google Nexus 7 was always going to be a hot-selling device. However it appears that the demand for the Tegra 3-packing slate managed to surprise even Google themselves, as the company was forced to temporarily suspend the orders for its 16GB version.

And we suspect supplies won’t last too long there either, so you might want to hurry up if you want to be among the first to have a Nexus 7. Read more »

Here at GSMArena, phones and tablets are our bread and butter, but our love for tech is by no means limited to them. So imagine our excitement when we got the opportunity to test a gadget which reads your thoughts and allows you to do cool things with it on your computer.
The gadget in question is called EPOC and is made by Emotiv. It’s a futuristic looking headset, which reads your brain activity via the scalp of your head and translates it into various actions.

It’s been a busy week for CyanogenMod – to accompany the almost daily ports popping up for various devices, some users over at the xda-developers blog have achieved an unofficial CyanogenMod 10 port to the Motorola Atrix, DEFY, DEFY+ and the Tegra 3-only HTC Endeavor (One X).
