The Android Police Podcast is back for another week of fun, and we've managed to limit ourselves to a mere 80 minutes this time. This week, we're talking about a lot of various things, including the Galaxy S III's US adventures, just how ugly the white EVO 4G LTE is, and something about an "Ouya."

- AT&T's LTE footprint just got a little bigger - let's hope Zappos still has its size.
- Sprint's LTE footprint just got ... into existence. They'll catch up with Verizon in no time!
Android at Arms (legal news)
- Injunction junction, what's your function? No, seriously, what the hell is up with all these injunctions?
- The Galaxy Nexus is back in the Play Store, bringing joy pretty exclusively to thousands of Android fans who already own one and were completely unaffected by this whole situation in the first place. But it makes you feel good, right?
- Jelly Bean is in AOSP now, so you and your beard can go do whatever it is you do with code.
- The Verizon Galaxy Nexus is nearing AOSP support, but they have to say it's "experimental" because Samsung really sucks at fixing bugs.
- Oh, and the Sprint Galaxy Nexus is not nearing AOSP support. At all. Ever. Probably.
The Hotsheet (device news)
- The Atrix HD is here and holy crap it still looks exactly like a RAZR. And the bootloader is locked. Surprise, surprise.
- The EVO LTE now comes in white, which has successfully made a really ugly phone a really boring ugly phone.
- But the ugly crown this week goes to AT&T's "Garnet Red" Galaxy S III, or as everyone else will call it, "Oh god, what is THAT?"
- The Verizon version of the Galaxy S III is available today.
- And the bootloader on it has been bypassed. And it has custom recovery. But not CyanogenMod 9.
- Oh, and for $600 you can buy one with a non-locked bootloader. I'm sure thousands of Verizon customers who pledged they would never give up their unlimited data are just ecstatic, and countless dev versions of the phone will be sold!
- Putting your phone in a microwave and then claiming it spontaneously combusted for no reason on the internet only to be totally disproven, that and more this week on Maury.
- Google wants you to buy things with the Nexus 7 you bought. Surprising, I know.
- Nexus 7 ninja unboxing GO!
- Device updates: Nexus 7, HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus, Epic 4G Touch, Sprint Galaxy S III, AT&T Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II Skyrocket, EVO 4G LTE, Photon 4G.
- Dead Trigger review: it's awwwweeeesooooome.
- Amazing Alex is out and Rovio made it, so that's something.
