An update just hit the Verizon Support docs site that details an upcoming OTA for the LG Revolution. Before we get into to the details of this update, (and you get your hopes up); no, it's not Android 4.0. Sorry, Revolution owners.

What it does bring though, is a bit of a curiosity. Listed as the solitary 'New Feature' of the device is the Verizon Remote Diagnostic Tool, a VNC-like application that will allow VZW customer support to remotely view and control the device for troubleshooting purposes, with the user's permission, of course.

Samsung has been holding on somewhat tightly to any details of its highly anticipated upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S III. We've heard a few ridiculous rumors here and there over the past several weeks, but today's "leak" looks to be the most believable thus far - either that, or a masterfully created hoax.

As pointed out in this thread on Reddit, there are many aspects of this leak worth pointing out, beginning with the biggest hints of all: the date in the calendar and location in the weather widget.

Ice Cream Sandwich. It's more than a buzzword in the Android community right now - it's what most users are waiting for in one way or another. Some are waiting on the update to roll out to their device, while others are still waiting to find out if their device will even get the update. For HTC Rezound users, however, the wait ends today - as long as they're willing to flash a leaked firmware, that is.

Late last month, we heard that the 20th anniversary edition of the cult classic platformer Another World (also known as Out of this World) would be coming to Android on March 16th. If you happened to check the calendar today, then you would know that today is, in fact, the 16th. If you combine the information from the first two sentences of this post, then there is only one possible conclusion: Another World 20th Anniversary Edition is out today!

I know what all you non-Nexus S owners are thinking: wait, didn't the ICS update roll out to the NS back in December? In fact, it did. But there was some sort of battery drain issue, so Google had to stop the update. And that's the last semi-official thing we heard about it.

Needless to say, Nexus S owners are pissed.

Today, however, Engadget has received "confirmation" from a "trusted source" that the ICS update is set to begin rolling out to the NS (again) and the NS4G "in the next few weeks." While it shouldn't take this long for El Goog to push an update to a Nexus-branded device, it's nice to hear some movement is finally being made on this front.

Sprint

Back in July of '11, Sprint entered into an agreement with Lightsquared to provide 4G LTE to its network on the 1.6GHz spectrum. Lightsqaured was given until March 15, 2012 to work out the potential kinks (mostly dealing with GPS interference) but was unable to deliver on this deadline. As such, The Now Network had to call it quits.

Sprint has been and continues to be supportive of LightSquared’s business plans and appreciates the company’s efforts to find a resolution to the interference issues impacting its ability to offer service on the 1.6 GHz spectrum.

I love my Galaxy Nexus. It's nearly perfect - fast, sleek, sexy as hell, and runs Android 4.0 (which is, without a doubt, the best version of Android to date). As impressive as it is, though, it has one massive shortcoming: the craptastic battery life. Fortunately, I'm around a wall outlet pretty much all the time, and I also have a couple of external chargers that stay in my gadget bag for times when I'll be away from the desk for an extended amount of time (read: hardly ever).

Well, looky what just happened to stroll through the FCC - none other than the Galaxy Nexus for Sprint. The upcoming flagship for Sprint's LTE network appears to be identical in size to Verizon's version, making it a hair thicker than the GSM variant.

This actually offers little other details about the device, aside from the fact that it has been given the stamp of approval by the US Government, which means it's one step closer to hitting the Now Network's shelves.

EA-Logo

Here in the States, we call it soccer, which actually makes little sense. Our neighbors across the pond have a more accurate term for the game, however: football. To be honest, I'm not really sure where the crossing of terms came into play, but football in the U.S. is definitely not the same game as football in other countries. Regardless of what you call it, EA just released a new game for all who love the thought of kicking a ball into a net: FIFA 2012.

Have you ever used Square, the service that lets you accept credit card payments directly on your mobile? It's a pretty satisfying experience to be able to take a payment from anywhere you are, especially for small business owners.

Hey, look! It's that phone.

Not to let Square have all the fun, PayPal is now launching a similar service that it calls "PayPal Here." It's basically just like Square, though at first glance it seems that the app may be a bit more full-featured.
