If you've been patiently waiting for the 16GB version of the Nexus 7 to make its way back into the Play Store, the wait is now over. The tablet dropped its "coming soon" status for "in stock" just a bit ago, and Google has already started sending out emails to users who signed up for updates on the device's status.

Still, if you don't want to wait for shipping, you may be better off hitting up the local Staples or Office Depot - we're still hearing word that many stores still have a stock of N7s to share with the world.

If you're lucky enough to have already received your TF700, there's an update slowly rolling out that brings a handful of enhancements to the device. Like with most other ASUS OTAs, a changelog isn't available, but users are reporting increased touch sensitivity, support for 64GB and larger SD cards, an updated camera app, better I/O performance, and other stability improvements.

The update is not yet available on my TF700 at the time of writing this, so we expect it's rolling out on a schedule and will likely begin hitting more device soon.

The games are underway in London and the whole world is watching. If you'd like to follow the course of the events without spending the next couple weeks glued to your television, Yahoo! may just have you covered. The app is decidedly slick-looking, though some users have reported some trouble with the app, however in our test runs, it's worked adequately. Your mileage may vary.

The app has sections for news, photos, and quick access to which countries have won what medals for which events.

Thumb Keyboard, one of the most intuitive, well-designed, and practical keyboards available (especially for tablet users) got a big update recently, bringing the app up to version 4.5.

Perhaps the biggest benefit to the new update is that Thumb Keyboard now supports ICS' continuous voice recognition, which in case you've forgotten, is the feature introduced with Ice Cream Sandwich that actively listens and dictates your speech. This is a feature I haven't seen in other alternative keyboards, and it's definitely nice to have.

Flag tags

With Olympics season in full swing, we've seen plenty of apps to help you keep track of which teams are winning which events, but not many that help you show off a little bit of national pride. Fortunately, Panasonic's Flag Tags app is here to help.

The app is a bit of a novelty, but it works surprisingly well. You simply choose the flag colors you would like, take a picture of yourself (or select one from your gallery), and select the area of the photo in which your face appears.

GALAXY_Note_10.1_Product_Image_(2)

Firmware for Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet, including the full system dump, was leaked by SamMobile this weekend. As expected, the OS version in the dump is currently ICS 4.0.4 as opposed to Jelly Bean, but there is still a slim chance we'll see 4.1 at launch. The tablet has received a number of upgrades since the announcement at MWC earlier this year, the most notable ones being a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a stylus slot.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see In A Perfect World, Who Would Manufacture The Next Nexus Phone?

Back in November - in the early days of true Android tablets - we ran a poll to see what you considered the ideal tablet screen size. The majority (47%) of you said roughly 10"; at the time, that was largely all there was to choose from, so an understandable result.

Gameloft took its sweet time getting its games in the Google Play Store, but when the French developer finally got its act together it offered some great stuff. The Asphalt series of racing games has been a mainstay of Android for a while now, and the newest incarnation, Asphalt 7, has finally launched. Now that there are so many alternatives, should you still be revving your engine for Asphalt? Let's see.

ZTE_Flash_Sprint_Leak

As we've seen occasionally in the past, ZTE is capable of producing a genuinely impressive budget phone. It looks like they're coming up to bat again, because some purported specs for an upcoming phone have leaked, and they certainly look impressive:

 ZTE_Flash_Sprint_Leak

  • Android 4.0 (could be bumped up to 4.1 by release)
  • 4.5" HD IPS Display (1280x720) with Gorilla Glass
  • LTE
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU (MSM8960)
  • 12.6MP rear shooter, 1MP front
  • NFC
  • 8GB storage + microSDXC
  • 1GB RAM
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • .38" (9.6mm) thick
  • Custom ZTE UI pictured

The specs largely match today's flagships, such as the US variants of the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III - right down to using the exact same CPU.
