Android 4.1.2 Rolling Out For AT&T's Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Samsung Posts Source Code Too

Now that the various sizes of the Galaxy Tab 3 are on the brink of release, it's time for Samsung to update a few of its older tablets... to Android 4.1.2. Commence grumbling about the sad state of the manufacturer/carrier update system. AT&T's LTE version of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (SGH-I497) is next on the list - since the tablet launched on AT&T's network back in November with a 4.0 operating system that was only a year out of date, it's almost fitting that the 4.1 update is coming almost exactly a year after Jelly Bean was introduced on the Nexus 7.

Google Will Continue To Allow Developers In Argentina To Sell Paid Apps And IAP On The Play Store, For Now

Last month Google announced that they would remove Argentina from the list of regions supporting paid Android apps in the Google Play Store. The company cited "ongoing issues," likely having to do with rapidly increasing inflation and other economic problems in the country. Google had planned to remove all paid apps and IAP apps from Argentinian developers tomorrow, June 27th. Now the company has reversed its decision, and though they haven't said why, presumably it follows the outcry from the Argentinian developer community.

Google: No Factory Image Or Proprietary Binary Hosting For Google Play Edition One Or S4, OEMs Will Handle OTAs

There's been a lot of speculation about just how Nexus-like the Galaxy S4 and HTC One Google Play edition phones will be, particularly from a technical / software update standpoint. Now, we have some relatively concrete information that sheds light on these issues.

First and foremost, Google will not directly handle software updates for Google Play edition devices. This has been reported as true, false, and generally disputed quite a lot in the lead-up to the launch.

Google Play Books Now Live In Austria, Belgium, Ireland, And Portugal

Google quietly brought Play Books today to four new countries: Austria, Belgium, Ireland, and Portugal. The aforementioned countries only had access to Google Play Apps and Music before, so I'm sure the book lovers among those of you who reside in the four territories are ecstatic.

Google has been very slow to roll out various content stores worldwide. The last time Play Books expanded was all the way back in March and only included one country - Mexico.

Duolingo App Updated With Tablet Optimizations, Landscape Support, And Leaderboards

At the end of May, language-learning app Duolingo hit Android with hopes of bringing "a college-quality education without the price tag" to the mobile scene. As useful as it was at the time, however, it had a couple of fairly major shortcomings: lack of a tablet-optimized interface and/or landscape support. In about a month's time, however, the company has already managed to cough up an update that not only brings both of those features to the table, but also an all-new leaderboard feature that lets you compete with your friends.

[APK Teardown] Google Search 2.6 - Coming Soon: Car Rental Reminders, Event And Sport Ticket Barcodes, And A Wallet Loyalty Card?

Google Search was just updated to version 2.6, which means it's teardown time! As usual with Google Search, it's impossible to bring up the new stuff "at will." Cards pop up entirely based on a bunch of crazy inputs that I can't easily replicate (emails, location, etc) so there's no way for me to check if new code is functional or not. So, I'll just cover everything that's not in the change log, and if you manage to see a live, working version of something, just send in a screenshot.

BubblePod Secures Funding On Kickstarter, Promises To Free 360-Degree Photos From Shaky Hands

This is a niche product, the kind that may appeal to only one in every fifty people, and even they may only use this thing a total of twice before forgetting they bought it. It's a good idea, no doubt about it - I'm just surprised it's getting made. It looks funny, it sounds funny, and, frankly, the itch it scratches is also kind of funny. But these things have not mattered.
