T-Mobile Finds myTouch's Missing Megapixel, Updates Device To Build C85B839SP03

Owners of T-Mobile's Huawei-made myTouch can begin anxiously tapping "software update" now – the carrier is rolling out a minor update to software build C85B839SP03. Among other things, this update fixes the myTouch device's "missing megapixel" problem, allowing the camera to "realize [its] full 5.0 Mega Pixel resolution."

The update also allows users to opt out of Carrier IQ, and brings a "compose" button to the Email app, and adds call-related bug fixes.

Chameleon Launcher Leaves Beta Status, v1 Is Now In The Play Store

Hey, guess what? After about 18 hours as a Release Candidate, Chameleon Launcher for Android tablets is now available in its full v1.0 glory. That's right, it's no longer beta.

It has been a twisty, turny, windy, and other non-straight words journey for Chameleon, so it's nice to see the launcher hit its first full release. According to the Chameleon Blog, there are still a few kinks to be worked out (which makes me question the "final" release status), but hopefully that'll happen relatively quickly.

Updated Jelly Bean Factory Images Show Up For The Nexus S and Nexus S 4G

Back in July, Google made available the stock Jelly Bean images for a couple of the Nexus S variants, as well as the GSM Galaxy Nexus, and Nexus 7. Today, the build for the global Nexus S (soja) got updated to Android 4.1.1 (JRO03L), and the Nexus S 4G (sojas) Jelly Bean 4.1.1 image (JRO03R) made its way to Google's image download site, as well.

Unfortunately, there's still no sign of Jelly Bean showing up for the Korean version of the Nexus S (or the LTE Galaxy Nexii, for that matter).

PSA: $25 Google Play Credit Promotion For Nexus 7 Ends On September 30th

Thinking about picking up a Nexus 7? You might want to get on that before the end of this month (right here), as the $25 Play Store credit promotion Google announced with its slate at Google I/O expires on September 30th. That means you must redeem the promotion before that date by signing into your Nexus 7 with a Google Wallet-linked Google account (that has a credit or debit card on file).

Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate Gets The Ice Cream Sandwich Bump, Available Via Kies Right Now

If you say nothing else about Samsung, the manufacturer is at least thorough about getting Ice Cream Sandwich out to as many devices as possible, if not punctual. Today's latest addition to the 4.0 stable is the Galaxy Exhilarate, a mid-range phone on AT&T. The update will be rolling out via Kies immediately.

Stock Android Isn't Perfect: These Are The Things I Can't Stand About Jelly Bean

In my reviews, I frequently abuse and pick apart TouchWiz, Sense, and MotoBlur. I point out flaws, say "that's stupid," and wonder what the heck was going on when someone approved whatever half-baked change they've come up with. A lot of the UIs shipping on phones today are bad.

But it's not just the 3rd-party skins. Stock Android isn't perfect either, and that's what we're here to talk about today. Jelly Bean has all sorts of confusing user interfaces, weird bugs, things that don't make any sense, and things that desperately need polishing.

LG Confirms That The Optimus G Will Launch In The US In November, Carrier Details Absent

LG has confirmed that its upcoming flagship, the Optimus G, will be launching in the United States this November. Carrier partners went unannounced, but given LG's historical relationship with Verizon, we'd hedge our bets there first and foremost, though AT&T could be another likely contender for the first major handset released with a quad-core Qualcomm processor.

We do know the Optimus G is packing LTE, but that it must be courtesy of a discrete radio, as the APQ8064 Qualcomm S4 Pro chipset does not include a cellular modem.

Engadget Benchmarks The RAZR i, It's Probably Not The Powerhouse You Were Expecting

Right after Motorola made the RAZR i official, the very first comment on our post was "Benchmarks ASAP!" because everyone wants to know how Intel's Medfield processor compares to the more common ARM-based chips that we're used to seeing. Engadget spent some time doing exactly that this morning, and the results are, well... less than impressive. Have a look:

The only area where the RAZR i outperforms its Snapdragon S4-touting cousin (the M) is in the SunSpider benchmark, which tests browser performance.
