Updates don't alway meet their deadlines, and that's fine. The Android 4.2.2 Google TV update that LG promised back in May may be late, but it's here, at least for some models. This is big news for people who have invested in Google's television offering, as it bumps the platform up from a rather old Android 3.2 Honeycomb base.
Unfortunately, some things are lost in transition. While updated Google TVs will have better mobile app compatibility thanks to Android NDK support, the Chrome browser has changed from the PC to the Android version, meaning there's no Flash support. Read More
Android-powered gaming systems are definitely on the rise as of late, with NVIDIA's SHIELD, OUYA, and the upcoming Mad Catz M.O.J.O., there's no shortage of ways to play Android games on something other than your phone or tablet. To keep up with the rest of the world, Archos has announced the sequel to its dedicated Android gaming system, the GamePad. I'll give you three guesses as to what the new version is called (and the first two don't count). Read More
Reports have been circulating for the last week or so that the Android 4.2.2 bits were arriving on WiFi-only Note 8.0 devices, but now the floodgates appear to have opened. Almost all Note 8.0 units in the US should now be able to get the update in the system menu or by connecting to Samsung's Kies software.
It has only been a few months since Asus announced the original PadFone Infinity, but the new version of the phone-tablet hybrid was just outed in Taiwan. This is a spec bump on the last PadFone, which moves from Snapdragon 600 to 800, but that's not all.
Just like the last PadFone, this one has a 5-inch 1080p screen, which is upped to a 10-inch display at the same resolution when the phone is in the tablet dock. Read More
Verizon hasn't explicitly announced an Android 4.2 update for the DROID DNA, but in a way, they have. The company has updated the support page for the nearly one-year-old handset with an in-depth look at what new goodies to expect. It's quite the ugly page, so we'll save you the effort of perusing it for yourself by providing the gist right here. After this update, DROID DNA owners will have an HTC Sense 5 experience that approaches that of the HTC One. Read More
ASUS gave us an early look at the Transformer Pad Infinity TF701T back at Computex, but now the device has been announced again in a bit more detail. The TF701T will be the Tegra 4-powered successor to the original Infinity. It bumps all the specs to fit nicely into the top tier of Android slates.
If you've got a late-model Samsung device and a desire to tinker, Wanam Xposed is for you. It's a module for the increasingly popular Xposed Framework (which means that those without root need not apply). If you have a stock Samsung device that runs Android 4.2 or later, Wanam Xposed opens up an incredible amount of customization options for TouchWiz and other settings.
Visual and audio tweaks include colors or transparency in the notification bar, customizations for the battery, clock, and date displays, transparent quick settings, 180-degree rotation support, disabling Samsung's dingy boot sound, and a dark theme for the multi-window view. Read More
So you're a fan of custom ROMs, but you're not quite ready to live on the bleeding edge (or alternately, your device doesn't have a reliable Android 4.3 build yet). Fear not, cautious Android power user: the CyanogenMod team has a build for you! CyanogenMod 10.1.3 will be the last version of CM based on Android 4.2, and release candidates are now being posted for supported phones and tablets.
10.1.3 is more precisely based on Android 4.2.2, with all the bells and whistles that Google and CyanogenMod could shove into last year's release. Read More
Xperia Tablet Z WiFi owners, the time has come for you to make the jump to Android 4.2.2. The latest firmware update, version 10.3.1.C.0.136, updates the six-month tablet to the next version of Jelly Bean and brings with it a slew of features worth salivating over, such as support for 64GB SD cards, and some that may be more subjective, such as the transition from a tablet UI to a phone UI.

Nearly all the attention for reader-tablet hybrids goes to Amazon and Barnes & Noble, but today the Toronto-based Kobo is making a compelling case for their share of the market. The company announced three new tablets: the Arc 7, Arc 7HD, and Arc 10HD, set for release on October 16th. The three models are roughly analogous to the latest Kindle Fire, Fire HD, and Fire HD 8.9, but they've got two distinct advantages: they run Android 4.2.2, and they've got access to the Google Play Store.
