Samsung Releases Kernel Source For Yet-Unannounced Victory 4G On Sprint (SPH-L300)

You may remember Samsung's Galaxy Victory 4G LTE (formerly known as "Gogh") from some training materials we caught sight of just a few days ago. Well, while the device is still unannounced, good old Sammy has decided to drop the Victory's kernel source ahead of time for anxious developers and tweakers to get started on.

[Update: Pricing And Availability] T-Mobile Makes The Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G Official, Available 'In The Coming Weeks'

At the beginning of August, we heard about a Samsung device heading for T-Mobile that was then called the Galaxy S Blaze Q. The name later changed to Galaxy S Relay 4G, and now it's official.

  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor
  • 5MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
  • slide-out QWERTY
  • SAFE (Samsung Approved for Enterprise)

Neither pricing nor availability is available at this time, only that it will be available online and at T-Mobile retail locations "in the coming weeks."

Update: T-Mo just released official pricing and availability.

Google Drive Update For Android Brings Improved Presentation Viewing, Basic Table Support In Docs, And More

Before I get your hopes up, no they haven't improved spreadsheets yet. However, that is on the way. What is arriving now, though, is the ability to add comments to your documents, view tables, and improved Google presentations viewing support. You'll even get speaker notes and the ability to swipe between slides.

There are more features on their way. Here at Android Police HQ, we've been eagerly awaiting proper spreadsheet editing (which is currently horrible to an unusable degree), and Google has seen fit to name check that very feature in its "More to come..." section.

We've seen some really cool things come along with augmented reality technology.

Users Will Be Able To Opt Out Of Kindle Fire/HD Ads For A One-Time Fee Of $15

When the new Kindle Fire and HD models were announced three days ago, the tech world was abuzz with the fact that Amazon has laced them with "Special Offers" in order to keep the cost down. Immediately, one question came to everyone's mind: will I be able to remove the ads?
