- AT&T wants you to sign on with its new Mobile Share plans. But it won't make you. Yet.
- Sprint's LTE network made a blip in the SF Bay Area, and yes, that apparently warrants its own story.
- HTC is going to introduce a 5" 1080p phone, codename "Overkill."
- Motorola went and got everyone all excited and then let them down. So, business as usual.
Android at Arms (legal news)
We talked about Samsung's continuing case of foot-in-mouth disorder, but I have no link to give you.
- Surprise: Google's face unlock still isn't actually a very good way to secure your phone.
- Hear, hear: Google Listen is dead.
- Jelly Bean's great app encryption stopped a bunch of people from being able to use a bunch of paid apps, which in a way, is exactly what's it supposed to do. Just, you know, maybe narrow it down to the people that actually stole the app, Google.
- Android Movie Studio: Yeah, I forget about it, too.
The Hotsheet (device news)
- The Galaxy Note 10.1 is officially official, should you care. And it's already rooted.

- Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q leaks. Samsung, please, put down the alphabet before you run out of names.
- CM9 Stable is out / almost out for a bunch of stuff.
- Device updates: Sony Xperia P, Toshiba Thrive.
- Chameleon Launcher: will it blend?
- Gameloft is making an Unreal Engine game and it features a really big sword, and that's probably all you need to know.
