Bringing a taste of truth to age-old rumblings of an LG Nexus device, the head of LG's Smartphone division, Ramchan Woo, has stated (in an interview with Cnet) that the manufacturer is "heavily in discussions" over a possible Nexus device, adding "we're working on it." While this quote is compelling, Cnet rightly highlights a few sticking points in the deal.

On one hand, while there is no evidence that Google will give Motorola preferential treatment following its acquisition, concerns have manifested, and partnering with any manufacturer (why not LG?) would quash any rumblings.

Building on the hype surrounding HTC's new line of Android-powered smartphones, the Taiwanese manufacturer has released a series of promotional videos, showcasing the HTC One series and each device's individual strengths.

For those who may have somehow missed the buzz thus far, HTC's One series is packing some pretty impressive hardware, from the One X with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, to the more budget-minded One V with its 1GHz processor and pocket-friendly 3.7" display.

Just as HTC announced its new One line of Android-powered smartphones, Clove, in an HTC One blog takeover, announced that pre-orders are now open for all three devices. Clove also divulged each device's price, full specs, and expected release date.

HTC One X

The HTC One X, perhaps the most impressive of the new line, is slated for release on April 5th, carrying a price tag of £410.00 (or about $645) not including VAT.

GALAXY_Tab_2_(10.1)_Product_Image_(1)

Almost a week ago, we got a peek at the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, Sammy's latest 7" iteration of the Galaxy Tab line. As expected, the Korean manufacturer has just unveiled the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 - the 7.0's bigger, badder counterpart.

Look familiar? The Tab 2 10.1's form factor is reminiscent of the 10.1n, with an added touch of style to the forward-oriented speaker grills. As for the Tab 2's specs, here's what we know so far:

  • 10.1" 1280x800 PLS TFT display
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (with TouchWiz UX)
  • VGA front shooter and 3MP main camera
  • 16/32GB Internal storage, expandable via MicroSD
  • 1GB RAM
  • 1GHz Dual-core processor
  • HSPA+ 21MBps 850/900/1900/2100 connectivity (in the non Wi-Fi variant)
  • Incredible 7,000 mAh battery

Many of the specs above should look familiar too, as they are shared with the original Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Sprint's list of 2012 LTE rollout markets (confirmed or otherwise) seems to be growing by the minute. Last week, it was revealed that construction was beginning in the San Francisco Bay Area, headed for official activation by the end of 2012. Today, S4GRU revealed that NYC may also be on the list of 2012 markets, explaining that Sprint is not likely to announce second or third-round markets because there is no way to accurately determine when activations will occur.

While the much-talked-about Galaxy S III will be conspicuously absent from MWC this year, BGR has received an exclusive tip relaying some of the handset's juicy details. To start with, BGR reports that Samsung is holding off the S III's big reveal in order to "shorten the gap" between announcement and official release. Samsung is evidently planning to release the S III in over 50 global markets simultaneously.

The S III is also rumored (according to BGR's "trusted source") to be packing a 4.8" display (thought to be Super AMOLED Plus HD), a quad-core processor, Android Ice Cream Sandwich, 4G LTE connectivity, and a stylish back piece made entirely of a ceramic material.

Just under a week after receiving almost unprecedented support from the Android community to fund the purchase of new build servers, the CM team has begun pumping out CM9 nightlies for a handful of devices. There's no question - the CM team is moving quickly, and the release of so many nightlies in such a short time span is exciting, to say the least.

Koushik Dutta, in a Google+ post earlier this evening, expressed appreciation, confirming that CyanogenMod "was able to purchase 3 top of the line, ridiculously geared, build servers," which will soon have an automatic build schedule.

Adding to the heap of pre-MWC goodies we've seen lately, NEC decided to show off three of their new Android-powered phones today in Japan, and if nothing else, the devices look interesting.

The first thing that jumps out is the strange gizmo on the far left – it appears to have 2 displays back to back (when folded), and is labeled as the "best cloud device," hinting at easier cloud connectivity.

MWC is still a few days away, and we're already starting to get some pretty great information on the devices that will shape the mobile electronics world in 2012.

Adding to the list of pre-MWC news items, the Italian blog Telefonino.net has posted a series of videos and photos, showcasing LG's complete Android lineup for 2012, from the LG Optimus 4X HD (which we mentioned yesterday) to the Optimus 3D MAX, to the Optimus LTE.
