Samsung Releases Kernel Source For Galaxy S4 Zoom LTE And Galaxy S4 LTE-A

Developer types, take note. Samsung has just posted the kernel source for the Galaxy S4 Zoom LTE and the Galaxy S4 LTE-A. Getting a piece of the open source Jelly Bean code will allow developers to better support the devices, which might actually be important in the case of the oddball GS4 Zoom.

The Galaxy S4 Zoom is basically a GS4 Mini with a giant point-and-shoot camera grafted on the back.

Verizon Could Be On The Verge Of Buying Out Vodafone's Stake For As Much As $130 Billion

Verizon is perhaps the most intimidating fish in the sea of US cellphone carriers (okay - it's more of a pond). Now the Big Red is in talks to buy Vodafone's 45% stake in the company for $130 billion, and signs suggest that this deal could be completed within a week. If this goes through, it will mark the closure of a deal Verizon has wanted to secure for years.

Verizon-Vodafone

If you aren't familiar with Vodafone, it's a British company with roughly four times the number of subscribers that Verizon has and the largest mobile network operator outside of China.

Sidescroller Badland Coming To Blow Your Mind On Android 'Soon'

I, like most people, am a great fan of beautiful games. When a game is outstandingly gorgeous and offers great gameplay, I feel that it is my civic duty to spread the word as far as I can. It seems that the time has come once again for me to don my bullhorn and tell you about Badland.

Badland is the type of game you don't see very often. The visuals are off-the-charts gorgeous, the audio meshes perfectly with the imagery, and the gameplay is so simple it's ridiculous.

[Update: Funded] Pressy, A Physical Button That Plugs Into Your Headphone Jack, Reaches Nearly 1/4th Of Kickstarter Goal After Just One Day

Android phones are immensely customizable, but typically, these tweaks take place internally. We swap out launchers and keyboards like car floor mats and seat covers. We pop in widgets like an aftermarket radio and toss on live wallpapers like air fresheners hanging from the rear-view mirror. But by keeping our attention inside the car (wait, what was I talking about again?) we ignore all the external tweaks that are possible. Introducing Pressy, a Kickstarter project that wants to pop into your earphone jack so that you can take pictures and turn on the flashlight without having to unlock your device.

Samsung Galaxy NX Priced – Coming In October For $1,599 Body-Only Or $1,699 With 18-55mm Lens

Samsung really crossed the streams when it announced the Galaxy NX Android camera back in June – mashing up a high-end mirrorless camera with Android. It's a rather bizarre idea, but actually looks like an interesting device. Samsung neglected to announce a price, though. Well, now it has, and you're not going to like it. The Galaxy NX will cost $1,599 for the body with no lens, or $1,699 for the body and a standard 18-55mm zoom lens.

Audio Glow Music Visualizer And Live Wallpaper Updated To 2.0 With Swipe Controls And A New Visualization Style

We featured Audio Glow when it launched in November of last year. This ultra-stylish music visualizer takes the basic visual component of classic hi-fi systems and gives it a fresh coat of paint. It's gained quite a following thanks to eye-popping visuals and a huge degree of customization. Today's version 2.0 update adds some interesting options, most notably the new "Glowing Strings" visualization, below.

This nifty option is available as a $1 in-app purchase for the main Music Visualizer app, but the developer has kindly included a 5-minute preview that you can check out before buying.

O2 And Vodafone Launch LTE Networks In The United Kingdom Today

United Kingdom citizens, your long wait for LTE service is finally over... assuming you haven't gotten fed up and switched to EE already. Vodafone and O2, half of the UK's "big four" wireless providers, have both switched on their 4G/LTE networks today. Vodafone's LTE network is limited to London at the moment, while O2's network fares slightly better with a rollout to London, Leeds, and Bradford.

EE has had a de facto monopoly on LTE/4G in the UK (none of the carriers across the pond ever muddied the "4G" name with HSPA service, so the terms are interchangeable) since October of last year thanks to the government's spectrum licensing.

[FAIL] San Francisco Muni Doesn't Know An iPhone From A Galaxy Note II (Or How To Hold One)

There's a new app available from the San Francisco Metro Transit Authority: an official Muni bus guide called Muni+. It's available right now for Android and iOS. And this dual release seems to have given the promotional department a bit of a problem. See if you can tell what it is by looking at this freeze frame of the new TV commercial now airing in the Bay area.
