LG Lucid And Verizon Galaxy Tab 7.7 Both Receiving OTA Updates Soon

If you're the lucky (debatable) owner of a Verizon Galaxy Tab 7.7 or LG Lucid, good news - you're about to get an OTA update! Verizon just posted new update docs on its support site for both devices.

The Tab 7.7's update is about as minor as you can get, though, offering reduced electrical consumption when charging... while powered off. We're guessing that's not what this update is actually about though.

Now There Is A T-Mobile Version Of The 3G Nexus 7 In The Play Store, But It's Pretty Much Identical To The AT&T Version

Up until this point, if you wanted to get the 3G version of the Nexus 7 in the US, it appeared that AT&T was the only option. Now, however, Google has provided a T-Mobile version on the Play Store. This model comes pre-loaded with a T-Mo SIM. According to the tech specs, though, they're functionally identical. This will just save you the trouble if you prefer magenta over blue and orange, I suppose.

T-Mobile Set To Launch LTE Network Within Days In Las Vegas, To Be Followed Soon By Kansas City

The initial rollout will take place in Las Vegas (where T-Mo had hoped to debut in time for CES, but was delayed), followed closely by Kansas City.

T-Mobile's Galaxy Note II Getting A Bug-Fix OTA, Patches The 'Exynos Exploit'

If you have a stock Note II on T-Mobile, it's time to hit the "check updates" button, because a fix for that nasty Exynos bug is on its way. If you're not familiar with said bug, it basically allowed any app to root and gain full access to any Exynos 4-powered system. And that's a bad thing.

Fortunately, Samsung recognized the issue and started working on a patch almost immediately.

Evleaks Posts Render Of HTC's Upcoming Flagship - Is This What We'll Be Seeing In Barcelona?

 

As we move past CES and ever closer to MWC (Mobile World Congress) at the end of February, the internet leak factory isn't giving us much of a lull in production. Today's story comes courtesy of evleaks at UnwiredView, and let's be honest: it's a tantalizing one. Take a looksee.

AirDroid 2 Beta APK Is Now Available To All, Remote Camera Access And 'Find Phone' In Tow

Do you use AirDroid? You should. It's a fantastic piece of software. While Google tends to prefer using cloud services to manage your data, there is no central app that can access and change anything on your device. This app fills that need and does so amazingly. It's so great that we gave away 20 invites to the v2 beta recently. Now, the invite-only requirement is gone and it's available to anyone who can download it.

Sprint Pushing Small OTA Updates To The Flash And Epic 4G Touch

A couple of small OTA updates - both of which are primarily bug-fixers - are making their way to the Flash and Epic 4G Touch on Sprint this morning.

Flash owners, you can expect LED blink timing improvements, camera enhancements, better text input with Swype, and a tweak to the information provided in Settings > Applications > Running applications.

The list is actually shorter for the Epic 4G Touch, with only two things in the OTA: it adds Sprint's Connection Optimizer, and brings some security updates.

[New Game] Gene Effect Is The Protoss Probe Simulator You Never Knew You Wanted To Play

You may have gathered from one or two of our previous posts that there are some Starcraft fanatics lurking around the offices of Android Police (and shouting things like "power overwhelming!" from the editor's desk). So when we saw what's basically a Metroid-style side-scroller apparently starring everyone's favorite autonomous crystal harvester, we had to jump on it. Gene Effect doesn't star an actual Probe, but there's plenty of potential in the game even so, especially if you're a fan of exploration and eye candy.

Motorola Atrix 4G Gets The Soak Test Treatment, ICS May Be Coming Soon

If you're an Atrix 4G owner, I've got a case of the feels for you. When the handset came out, it was one of the first pieces of hardware with a dual-core processor and it seemed like it would last forever. So far, though, it hasn't managed to get ICS. We all get burned by manufacturer updates but this one seems particularly harsh. Which is why I'm glad to bring a bit of good news: Motorola appears to be beginning its soak test program for the handset.
