We're going to keep this weekend's poll simple: how big do you think your tablet should be? We've asked this question before, but that was quite a while ago. I'm curious to see if the dimensional preferences of the average AP reader have changed since, and what influence devices like the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 have had on people who are in the market for a tablet.

The choices this time will be a bit different, as sub-7" tablets really never panned out in a big way, and we've got a few popular sizes out there now.

Google has updated the Play Support accepted payment methods page with a few new carrier billing options, including billing for subscribers of 3 in Hong Kong, Ireland, and Sweden. Wind Italy has apparently received carrier billing as an option, as well.

Oddly, Telenor of Sweden has been removed from the list as well, though we've not been able to confirm that the feature has actually been disabled. Depending on your provider, you may need to manually enable carrier billing as an option on your account page, as some 3 users are reporting.

Samsung has a thing with cameras lately, it seems, and putting Android on them. Or attaching a phone to them. Eventually, I expect we will see the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Camera, the world's first stylus tablet with a full-frame DSLR attached to the back. Until then, though, we may have to settle for the Galaxy NX - the spiritual successor to Samsung's not-exactly-lauded Galaxy Camera. Behold its [alleged] massiveness.

We don't often throw around the accolade "best" when it comes to product reviews here at Android Police. The dreaded "B" word can land a reviewer in hot water. But if there's one product niche I've been scouring for a long time, it's Bluetooth speakers. There are a vast array of choices out there, many of them quite well known (eg, Jambox), and others, a bit more obscure (like this guy).

Another day, another Good Guy Google announcement (even if it was yesterday): everyone's favorite search giant just announced that it's really tired of mobile web pages that do this (click, read, sympathize immediately).

If you really don't want to click that link (you should, it's hilarious), allow me to explain. Ever notice how when you search the web on your smartphone, and you click a search result for a specific page or section of a website, sometimes it'll just throw you back to the mobile homepage, with no respect to the page you actually asked for?

The official Nexus 7 pogo pin dock, which we reviewed earlier this year, closed up shop on the US Play Store for some reason this afternoon. The $30 accessory was rather long-awaited by many Nexus 7 owners, and went on sale on the Play Store in numerous countries, including the US, in March.

It's possible this is just a temporary fluke in the Play Store inventory system, but this page hasn't changed in well over an hour, so we're starting to believe this situation might be permanent.

Months after its flighty sibling, the Galaxy S II Skyrocket, received an update to Android 4.1.2, it seems that the vanilla GS2 on AT&T is finally ready for its Jelly Bean bump. Threads on XDA and the official AT&T forums confirm that the update - build number UCMD8 - is now available, just check for an update through Kies.

We don't yet have a changelog for the update, but you can assume that for Galaxy S II users, the number of changes coming from the Ice Cream Sandwich TouchWiz builds won't be huge.

With all the Android gaming hardware announcements of late, I've really started to wonder: are people actually going to buy any of this stuff in meaningful quantities? You've got Moga's new controllers, Mad Catz is doing a console, BlueStacks is doing a console, and then there are the already-announced things like Shield, Ouya, GameStick, and the seemingly ever-growing list of "made for Android" wireless controllers.

There's something that's been eating at me about all this stuff, though: it really does feel like a lot of the hype around the Android gaming segment is self-generated.
