LG teased the G2 Mini a week ago, announcing that more information would come on February 24th at Mobile World Congress.

The G2 Mini will ship with either a Snapdragon 400 or Nvidia Tegra 4i chip, a 4-7-inch 540x960 display, an 8MP camera, a 2440mAh battery, and just 8GB of internal memory (alleviated somewhat by a microSD card slot).

That's still a pretty good deal if you're willing to jump through the hoops. Read More
As part of a Reddit AMA earlier this afternoon, HTC announced that it would support all "flagship" devices with Android OS updates 2 years from their release date - though the promise was specifically conditioned as being to North America only. The bit about North America was added after the original statement was made, so it looks like HTC might have initially overpromised just a bit. Here's the whole quote:
Given the immense resource requirements for updates we can’t solve all our past issues, but today we are making a commitment to support all new North America flagship devices going forward with all major Android updates for 2 years after their release date.
Say what you will about BlackBerry's viability as a company, but the Canadian smartphone firm's messaging app is quickly shaping up into a powerful client. Today, BB announced that BBM 2.0 for Android is out now, and it adds a whole lotta stuff to the app's growing feature resume.
