Since the JB update started rolling out to the GSIII in Europe last night, Samsung decided this would be the perfect time to let U.S. owners know that the update will be available "in the coming months." Can you guess the reason why it's going to take so much longer? Allow me to enlighten you:
One thing's for sure: over the past several months, there's been no shortage of zombie games. Whether you're going toe-to-toe with the undead in Dead Trigger, using them as motivation in Zombies, Run!, or showing off your green thumb in Plants vs. Zombies, the walking dead are everywhere. It's like a zombie apocalypse without, you know, the apocalypse.
If you're looking for an apocalyptic nightmare that may hit closer to home, however, a new game called Global Outbreak may fit the bill.
Have you heard? The fourth AnDevCon (Android Developer Conference) is happening on December 4-7 in the SF Bay area. And with more than 80 classes and workshops, this will be the biggest one yet. There will be sessions held by reps from some of the industry's leading companies, including Groupon, Intel, Facebook, and, of course, Google.
Add another chapter to the Nexus 7 32GB saga. We've seen it once, twice, three times - and now it has showed up on Staples Advantage (their site for business users) with an estimated availability date of October 18th. That's probably just some sort of placeholder, though - it's highly unlikely that we'll see it show up in just two days' time.
The price shows as a few dollars less than the 16GB version, which lines up with previous rumors that the 32 may actually replace the 16 - a questionable move on Google's part, no doubt.
ASUS just unveiled the second generation Padfone, which seems to be an improvement over its predecessor in every way imaginable. The phone has a better processor, more RAM, a larger, high-resolution display, and a much better camera. The Tablet Station is somewhat similar to last year's model, but even the way the phone is docked into it is more intuitive than ever. In fact, that's exactly what ASUS was going for with every aspect of the Padfone 2: intuition.
Back at the end of August, Archos announced an innovative new tablet called the GamePad. As its namesake suggests, it's built with gaming in mind - complete with on-board controls. In the announcement, Archos claimed the 7" device had "automatic gaming recognition and mapping tools" - the big question was, however, how's that going to work?
We now have a better idea of what to expect from the GamePad, as ArmDevices.net has gotten some hands-on time with the device.
For many people, cases and mounts are a part of life with a mobile device. The problem is, however, that many users aren't willing to sacrifice style for functionality. What if you could have both, though? Thanks to a new product from Rokform for the Galaxy S III, that's more possible than ever.
The Rokbed for the GSIII is Rokform's first endeavor outside the iOS world, and it looks like they hit it out of the part.
If you've been waiting for Android 4.1.2 to hit your GSM Galaxy Nexus (yakju), wait no more. Google has already begun the OTA process, but in case you haven't gotten yours yet, we've got the direct link for manual installation. Yay for you! Here's how to make it happen.
First and foremost, you'll need to meet a couple of prerequisites:
