Update: Well, it looks like the Nexus 7 dock isn't in stock after all. Whether the dock sold out at lightning speed or was never actually available (despite all appearances) is unclear, but B&H appears to have begun sending out a batch of "we regret to inform you" emails regarding the hotly anticipated accessory:

The latest incremental update to Android 4.1 is out and ready to flash for US, Japan, China, and Taiwan models, and the international version to boot. You can check your Settings menu for the over-the-air download, or head over to the ASUS download page if you're not seeing it immediately.

For those of us using the Latin alphabet (or something at least slightly similar), handwriting our search queries probably seems a little tedious. However, if you're in the CJK group (Chinese, Japanese, Korean), things get a little harder on a software keyboard when your written language relies on myriad intricate characters. So, a while back, Google introduced handwriting recognition to mobile search, though the focus wasn't really on those languages specifically at the time. Read More
If you're a fan of "bullet hell" shooters, the day you've been waiting for has arrived: the celebrated arcade and Dreamcast title Ikaruga is now available on Google Play after a brief Japan-only period.

AT&T LTE GSM Galaxy Note II? CyanogenMod to the rescue yet again - official nightly builds have landed, based on CyanogenMod 10.1. This build will work with the AT&T and T-Mobile Galaxy Note II's in the US, and international versions of the Galaxy Note 2 LTE that are compatible with GSM carriers. Specifically, models GT-N7105, SGH-I317, and SGH-T889. This build will not work with the international Note II 3G (GT-N7100).
Dang it, I've already used up all my "G" adjectives for the day. The internet is not gonna leave me be, though, as the LG Optimus G 4G gets a good ol' grice grop to $49 on Gamazon Gireless. Gee, what a deal. The previous best offer we'd seen for this beast of a phone was $99, also via Amazon. $49 is a downright bargain for this flagship handset.
Both new and upgrading AT&T customers are eligible for the lower price point, as long as they're signing up for a new 2-year contract. Read More
Just yesterday, an LG rep let us know that, among other things, the "G" branding would continue to be representative of the company's top-tier hardware. Today, we get a glimpse at what the next great handset could look like. This leaked slide shows off the LG Optimus G Pro with a gorgeous 5" 1080p display, a gargantuan 3,000 mAh battery, a gratuitous Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, and a glorious 13-megapixel rear camera.

It seems that the Nexus Q, while still not officially re-available in the Play Store, is apparently anything but forgotten. The device – which is codenamed steelhead – just got its first official CyanogenMod 10.1 nightly build. Neat-o.
: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.
It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.
