After confirming Google Play gift cards would be coming to Mexico just last week, it's now officially official: they're on sale. Probably. Google has partnered with a handful of retailers in Mexico who will be stocking the Play gift cards, with 200, 300, and 600 Mexican Peso varieties being made available.

The announcement does note that the gift cards may not actually be in stock at these locations just yet, and that buyers should call ahead to confirm availability.

If you're a user of the popular home media server PlayOn and you read Android Police, you'll probably be interested to know that the service has added support for the Chromecast in the latest beta builds of the Windows applications (PlayOn and PlayLater).

The nifty part is that Chromecasting using PlayOn doesn't even require an Android device - you can send videos to your Chromecast from Android, iOS, or PC (via the browser extension).

Now that HTC's latest and greatest has been unveiled (we also went hands-on), it's time for a rather predictable query to you, our readers: did you buy one, or are you going to?

The new One boasts a slightly larger display than last year's model, and HTC new dual camera setup allows you to get a sort of knockoff-Lytro experience with your photos. The much-loved BoomSound speakers are making a return, as is the bulk of the original One's styling, apart from some slick new finishes.

HTC has released a whole slew of kernel source files for the 2013 version of the One today, following the gradual rollout of Android 4.4.2 to the device around the world. There are, frankly, too many variants to name in this post individually, but some of the highlights include Vodafone UK, AT&T, Sprint, O2 in Germany and the UK, and a number of unlocked variants. The screenshots below tell the full story.

While some would call it an inevitable eventuality, others were taken a bit aback when Google teased a wearable SDK at SXSW a couple weeks back, and later announced Android Wear. For those of you playing at home, Google has created no fewer than five variants of the Android OS tuned to a specific piece or style of hardware to date - Google TV, Chromecast (which does indeed run Android), Google Glass, Nexus Q, and now Android Wear.

While we didn't report on the story ourselves, Amazon's decision to raise the price of its Prime membership service by $20 (to $100 a year) has hard corners of the internet up in arms, albeit over something no one really needs in the first place.

If you're not in one of the countries where Prime is available (I was surprised to learn that it is, in fact, available outside the US), you may not be familiar with the service.

Samsung appears to be in full-on product carpet-bombing mode when it comes to wearables, as Samsung-thing-that-goes-on-your-wrist #4 has been detailed in a new leak by SamMobile, and it's called the S Band.

Now, you may say, "S Band? That sounds familiar" and you would be right, it should indeed ring a bell or two! Because Samsung initially unveiled a product called the S Band alongside the Galaxy S4... last year.

Google's begun rolling out an update to the Maps app on Android today, bringing it to version 7.7. While not much seems to have changed, a full 0.X release typically denotes at least some kind of new feature or significant alteration, though thus far we've really only seen one.

What’s New

For the moment, all we're noticing in the new version of Maps are the "Upcoming events" listings populating some place listings.
