Welcome back to the Android Police Week In Review, which is getting published slightly late this week because hey, the matinee screening of The Dark Knight Rises was cheaper. Don't forget, you can hear a lot of this over the course of an hour instead of 10 minutes in our podcast.
- Sprint LTE is finally available in most of its launch markets. And they're promising an absolutely earth-shattering 6-8Mbps
- Meanwhile, Verizon has announced its bi-weekly LTE mega-expansion that should make the above even sadder.
- AT&T has shared data now, and it might save you money. And probably really confuse your parents.
- Samsung is holding Unpacked 2012 Episode 2 (... Touch 4G LTE Barbeque Sauce Plus) in Berlin next month, expect a huge announcement.
Android at Arms (legal news)
- Fujifilm sued Motorola about patent things. Come on guys, Apple liked suing Android manufacturers before it was cool.
- Google wants to defend HTC against Nokia, Redditors immediately begin sending fruit baskets to presiding judge.
- A judge in the UK has told Apple it has to publicly state the Galaxy Tab 10.1 doesn't infringe on the iPad's design, presumably by having Tim Cook stand outside a Tesco for an entire afternoon wearing a giant particle board sign.
- Google posts a changelog for Jelly Bean, manages to avoid using the phrase "bug fixes" anywhere on the entire page.
- Google Now vs. Siri: Stallions.

The Hotsheet (device news)
- Nexus 7 shipping stuff. Just read this. Oh, and the 16GB is basically gone. Whoops.
- If you log into multiple accounts from the same Nexus 7, you can get another $25 Play Store credit. So that's cool.
- The Transformer Pad Infinity is in stock at Office Max and Amazon and it's not a Nexus 7 so I don't really care.
- The developer version of the Galaxy S III for Verizon is now available for all those people who said they would buy it to not buy it.

- Sony has announced a new Android Walkman and it makes me sad.
- Take note: Samsung's going to announce something on August 15th.
- HTC says the One X, XL, and S are all getting Jelly Bean. Great, now I can look forward to my favorite part of owning a non-Nexus handset: several months of strategically placed delays!
- CyanogenMod 9 is on the Nexus Q, I tried flashing it to mine, but that's pretty difficult when I'm using it as a shelf ornament.
- CM9 RC2 is out for stuff.
- CyanogenMod 10 preview builds: GSIII (US), GSIII (Int.), Transformer / Transformer Prime, Nexus S (i9020A).
- XBMC is coming to Android. And you can download it here.
- The Legacy Play Store allows you to actually see all the apps you've bought in their own category, provides increasing regret the further down you scroll.
- Dead Trigger is free now, click here for fantastic opportunity to see dozens of people complain they bought something for a dollar. I'm surprised we haven't been spammed with Change.org petitions yet.
- Avast Mobile Security 2 with Anti-Theft 2 Beta is here and it's free and awesome.
