On a lovelier note, Angry Birds Valentine's Day Edition was announced today! And do you love updates? How about updates to your beloved Nexus S, Nexus One, and Samsung Vibrant?

What's that I hear on the horizon? Is it Google TV? Take a peek as apps begin separating into touchscreen and non-touchscreen groups to prep for the oncoming.

Take a big serious look at this fabulous Jawbone ERA in a high-res review - it rocks really hard. Next, let me show you the spread of different kinds of content we've got here on SlashGear today - an X-Wing flies through a snow trench, Apple mice with multitouch displays, and an Electronic Eco-Friendly Rickshaw. Wild enough for you? The biggest news today, in my (and I'm sure many more people's) opinion? Google's current CEO Eric Schmidt stepping down from his post as boss. Take an odd ride with Don Reisinger down violence lane in a column asking the following: Is 17 the Right Cut-Off Age for Mature-Rated Games? Over on Android Community we've got a tip on some new robots: Droid X 2, Droid 3, and Droid Incredible 2, a rather controversial tip on Google holding Gingerbread, and a really scary tip about the Android app by the name of Trapster. Behold a whole new world via an extrapolation of the ideas of soon to be former CEO of Google Eric Schmidt by yours truly in a featured post called The Mobile Revolution is Upon Us. Finally discover the kind side of PR as Motorola issues an apology for one of their own speaking rudely to a developer.

First, watch your ports! Turns out there's a way for people to hack the crap out of your computer just by attaching their Android to it. Next take a ride on the confirmation train with both T-Mobile Galaxy S 4G and Vibrant 4G, and take a peek at some possible specs on the Samsung’s Galaxy S2, too. Here on SlashGear take a peek at the lovely brand new Jawbone ERA in a high-res review. Next go ahead and take that big jump with Google Voice as they introduce mobile number porting. Remember when LoveFilm bought Amazon Europe's DVD rental service? Now Amazon is buying LoveFilm - how about that? Remember how big A likes to add features to their OS? It seems as though iPhone iOS 4.3 has multitouch gestures - oh and iPad 2? February 9, perhaps. All this and MORE on SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up.

Sony Ericsson Vivaz 2 (aka Hallon) gets pre-announce preview

Sony Ericsson's XPERIA Arc may be the company's most eye-catching smartphone for the first half of 2011, but going by an early preview it might not be the best selling if the mid-range Vivaz 2 has anything to say about it. Mobile-Review has been putting a prototype Vivaz 2 - aka the Sony Ericsson Hallon or MT15i - through its paces, and finding it's far more than just a Vivaz with Symbian swapped for Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

XPERIA Arc 8.1MP Exmor R camera gets video demo

Sony Ericsson may not have bothered with NFC or a front-facing camera on the XPERIA Arc, but that doesn't mean the upcoming Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone fails to bring something new to the table. The company has been talking more about the Exmor R 8.1-megapixel camera on the Arc, and more precisely why there's more than just pure megapixels to differentiate it from rival handsets.
