So here we go - the rumor mill is really starting to churn out some seemingly solid details about Sprint's supposed version of the upcoming HTC One X. We first heard about this device shortly after the One X's official announcement back at Mobile World Congress, then rumored to be called the Jewel. Rumors later suggested the name internal name was actually Jet, but few other details have made their way to the masses - until now. 

I briefly suggested that the name of the device could be the EVO LTE, as it's said to be the newest successor in the EVO line.

 Are you looking for a new way to send images to friends with a twist? Or maybe you've just been reading a few too many John le Carré novels lately? Either way, you may be interested in this neat little application that's available in both paid and free versions for Android called Camopic.

Camopic, like many apps that are available for Android, allows you to share images with your friends, but when both parties are using Camopic on their phones, the true image that is being sent can be hidden behind another one.

Update:  The update should be available to all users now. Surprisingly, it's still running Android 4.0.3, and Face Unlock is still seemingly absent. It's possible that there was a bit of misinterpretation, since the original changelog was translated from Italian to English and ASUS actually stated that it was working on Face Unlock, not that it would actually be available in this update.

One thing it does bring, however, is something that Prime owners have been missing since the beginning: battery information, so you can finally see what has been chomping away at your precious juice.

People living in the US, UK, Canada, and Japan have been able to enjoy renting and purchasing movies from the Google Play library for some time now, and today, anyone living in France can use the service to get their movie fix as well.

If you have a French Google Play account, you will now have a link to purchase movies both online at play.google.com and through your Android phone. To celebrate the French launch, French classics such as 'La Grotte Des Rêves Perdu' and 'Le Bal Des Actrices' have been added to the store for everyone to enjoy.

Looking at these specs, if I didn't know any better, I'd ballpark the price for this device somewhere around $150.

I love trying new and original-looking Android games, so when I saw Swerve And Destroy in the Play Store today, I had to take it out for a spin. Oftentimes it's the simpler games that end up being the addictive ones, causing you to miss class (you shouldn't do that) and call in sick to work (definitely don't do that), and Swerve and Destroy is no exception. OK, maybe you won't end up playing it for days on end, but it's a fun time-killer.

You have Android on your phone, tablet, and TV. But what about your car? If you're not only an Android fanatic, but a car stereo junkie, Clarion is serving up a fully loaded new car stereo system called the Mirage just for you.

The Mirage is what Clarion calls a "smart car stereo" and boasts a 6.5-inch touch display panel, runs Android 2.2, and comes with Facebook and Angry Birds pre-installed (because Facebooking and playing AB while driving is a fantastic idea, and we need to promote this sort of behavior).

Source code for Android 4.0.4 (AOSP tag android-4.0.4_r1.1), the latest incremental update with "a few hundred changes over 4.0.3," is being pushed to AOSP (Android Open Source Project) as we speak by JBQ, one of AOSP's main sourcerers (yes, I just made that word up).

This is excellent news for any ROM developers compiling their ROMs from AOSP (such as CyanogenMod) - chances are 4.0.4-based ROMs will start appearing very soon, maybe even tonight.

Sprint

Looks like Sprint is pushing some OTA updates to a couple of all-but-forgotten devices: the LG Marquee and the Kyocera Echo. We haven't really heard much about the Marquee since it was announced back in September, but it appears that Sprint hasn't forgotten about it. A minor OTA update should be rolling out to the Marquee right now that brings a couple of bug fixes:

  • Device may lockup while on call
  • Security Update

Similarly, that quirky little dual-screened oddity known as the Kyocera Echo is also on the receiving end of a minor update that fixes some issues:

  • MMS audio cuts off after 8 seconds
  • Changes to roaming guard display
  • Activation of Commercial Mobile Alert System
  • Security Update

It's probably safe to assume that the security update portion of both OTAs is the removal of Carrier IQ, which Sprint has been removing from all of its devices over the last several weeks.
