Looks like ASUS is gearing up to announce the second iteration of its Turducken phone, the Padfone. A save the date for October 16th was sent out this morning to numerous Italian blogs, highlighting a dual-announcement - one in Milan, Italy, and another in Taipei, Taiwan, which is where ASUS is headquartered.

We haven't heard much about this updated phone-in-a-tablet-in-a-laptop before now, but rumor has it that a quad-core processor should be powering the device this go around.

Back at the end of May, a gaming accessory company called PowerA announced a new Bluetooth gaming controller for Android phones called the MOGA. At the time, release date and pricing information wasn't yet available, only that the controller would be released "before the holiday season." Looks like PowerA met that deadline, because it just officially announced the MOGA would be hitting the streets on October 21st for $50.

For those who may not be familiar with the MOGA, it's a game controller that includes a nifty built-in clamp-style holder for your smartphone, essentially turning it into a handheld gaming system.

MetroPCS just announced a new 4G smartphone from ZTE for its ever-expanding 4G LTE network. Dubbed the Anthem, this new handset offers mid-range specs under a 4.3" 480x800 display, including a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and Android 2.3. Past that, the pay-as-you-go carrier was overly-scant on details, but we'll assume it's packing 1GB of RAM and some sort of camera (5MP, maybe?).

So far as looks are concerned, it's not the prettiest thing we've ever seen, but it's hard to complain for around $220 (after MiR) with no contractual agreement.

Many users - myself, Artem, and several other AP team members included - got an error just a bit ago stating that "There is a problem communicating with Google servers," but this issue seems to only be affecting Jelly Bean devices. Makes perfect sense, too -  looks like Google Now is the only thing currently down, as Talk, Drive, GMail, Calendar, Movies, Music, Magazines, Books, Maps, the Play Store, and pretty much all other Google Services are currently fully functional.

GALAXY Note II Product Image_Key Visual (1)

Well, that was fast. The Note II was just announced for the five biggest US carriers this morning - Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular - and the latter already has its pre-order page ready to go.

As you can see, $300 will get you 16GB of storage, along with a 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 2GB RAM, an 8MP rear shooter, 1.9MP front camera, NFC, LTE connectivity, S Pen, and Android 4.1 underneath that beautiful 5.5" display.

Back in May, Liam spent some hands-on time testing out a then-new app called CallApp. Dubbed as a sort of supercharged caller ID, CallApp gives detailed info about who's calling you (or who you're calling), by pulling information from various social networks and the web.

Soon after release, the app was voluntarily pulled from the Play Store. During the app's hiatus from official channels (it was still available through their official site), however, the devs were still working on it.

Slowly but surely, AT&T is trying to close the gap between its LTE network and Verizon's. Today, it announced that its lightning fast LTE network is available in eight new markets:

  • Detroit, MI
  • Pittsburgh, PA
  • Portland, OR
  • Birmingham, AL
  • Memphis, TN
  • Honolulu, HI
  • Seattle, WA
  • Sacramento, CA

In addition to these new markets, AT&T's existing LTE network in Miami-Dade County has also been expanded.

AT&T's 4G Network
AT&T's innovation and investment has resulted in the nation's largest 4G network, covering 275 million people with ultra-fast speeds and a more consistent user experience.

We already know that the Big Four will be getting their own respective renditions of the Galaxy Note II. We also expect that it'll also be part of a unified release much like the Galaxy S III. We've even seen how Verizon defiled its home button. Turns out leaving its mark on the face of the device wasn't enough for Big Red, though; the carrier has also done some work to the bootloader.

CloudMagic, the supersearch service that crawls through your Gmail, GDocs, GCal, Contacts, Twitter, Office365, and Exchange accounts just got a whole lot more powerful. It was bumped up to version 2.1 in the Play Store, which brings integration with even more services, including Facebook, Dropbox, Evernote, Box, iCloud, AOL, mail.com, and GMX. That's a whole lotta services.

That's not all v2.1 is good for, either: the app has been completely redesigned to shed the old-school Google Search look and to make it more ICS/JB friendly.
