Android health freaks and those looking to shed some Christmas Kilos, can now rejoice. Fitbits have brought their insanely popular Apple app, to Android.
Infact, Fitbit now claim they are one of the only health app providers whom are across both popular Apple and Android platforms.
With this app, you can log your food, activities, weight and water while on the go, as long as you have a wireless connection. Everything syncs to (and from) your Fitbit.com account, and you can view up to two weeks of data for easy access when you’re away from your computer.
Best of all, the app is free from the Play Store which means the only thing holding you back now, is you!
Without a shadow of a doubt, our favourite device from MWC 2012 was the 3 in 1 Asus Padfone.
In case you have been in Canadian Wilderness under a rock for the last year or so, the Asus Padfone is a Phone, Tablet, and Transformer; in the one device.
The tablet cleverly pops out a docking bay, for the phone, which powers the tablet (and gets recharged at the same time), then the tablet docks into the keyboard, becoming a Transformer, and also helping itself to a recharge thanks to the keyboard dock’s extra large battery concealement.
Maybe this is the truest personification of the Transformer title that Asus has produced yet.

Well according to the team over at ZDnet, Asus and Google are reportedly working on a co-branded 7 inch Android Tablet.
The smaller form factor appears to be a hot topic amongst vendors at the present, with Samsung already outing their much applauded model.
Could it be that Android manufacturers are after the fabled Kindle Fire market, or is smaller becoming better with Android Tablets?
HTC was apparently not interested in the project, whilst it was deemed Acer did not have the development team required.
Only time will tell, but we will be following all developments on this first to market Google branded tablet with great intent.
