Update: AllThingsD, reaching out to Motorola, and received the following response:

“As we have previously stated Motorola Mobility is focusing on fewer mobile devices ... As a result we have phased out some of our lower tier devices in Europe/Germany.”

Motorola spokeswoman

Sounds like we won't be seeing any of those devices return.

-- Original Story --

I haven't been following Motorola's ongoing patent spats in Germany particularly closely in the last year, but I do know the company hasn't been doing well there.

Google TV is about to get a whole lot more useful. As of today, Google is pushing Play Movies, TV Shows, and Music to GTV. The rollout is going to take a few weeks to complete, so don't stress if it's not available on your box just yet.

With this update, you'll be able to rent or buy content directly from the Play Store and stream it to your TV. You'll also be able to discover movies and shows via the TV & Movies app, which will also provide recommendations for content available on Netflix and Amazon, along with Google Play.

We've been waiting on Wild Blood for a while now, and it's finally arrived. Gameloft's first game built on the Unreal engine tells the story of Sir Lancelot and his quest to defeat the evil Morgana and save Guinevere. Sounds fancy, huh? The retelling of the classic story even features an 8-person multiplayer mode. We'll leave you to make your own round table jokes.

The visuals look fantastic right off the bat.

We've rounded up a lot of apps over the past month. September, like most months, saw the release of a ton of new apps to the Play Store, many of which are worth your attention. Of course, most of us don't quite have enough time or patience to install and try out hundreds of apps every month, so we bring you our top five picks for best new app – a short list of newly released apps that every user should try out.

While the US variants of the XOOM 2 (known as the Xyboard/Droid Xyboard in the States) have been sitting on ICS for a while now, the lonely European versions have been idly waiting for their update to roll in. Good news: today's the day!

Motorola announced via its Facebook page that not only are the XOOM 2 variants getting the bump to ICS, but the XOOM Family Edition is receiving the update, as well.

Earlier this month, we saw a leaked image of the LG Optimus L9 for T-Mobile, and now Team Magenta has made the mid-range handset official. Availability details are still scant, with the press release stating it will hit shelves sometime "later this fall."

For those who may not remember this somewhat forgettable handset, here's a spec-refresher:

  • 4.5" qHD display with Gorilla Glass 2
  • 1GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB storage
  • 2,150mAh battery 
  • Android 4.0

The L9 also features some LG proprietary software, like QuickMemo and "Cheese Shot" (which has to be one of the worst names of all time).

Well, that's one way to announce a new device. Today on Twitter, Japanese user @oppese posted two photos of a Nexus 7 tablet. The first photo shows the storage screen displaying 27.58GB of usable space (indicating a 32GB model), and the second shows packaging for a 16GB Nexus 7. We've heard before that some stores are setting up a place for the higher capacity Nexus 7 on their shelves, but it appears this unit was mistakenly sent to a customer ahead of the full launch.

The rumor mill giveth and the rumor mill taketh away. Late Sunday night, a commenter on our site posted a surprising confession: he was the source of several rumors regarding Android 4.2. Initially, we confirmed that this commenter was the same who had sent us some different yet equally fantastic stories. Our batch hinted that Robert Downey Jr. might have been hired to introduce the new Nexii for the next couple years, for example.

You can't deny that Angry Birds is the biggest franchise going in mobile gaming, racking up hundreds of millions of downloads across its various platforms. It was only a matter of time before developer Rovio's licensing ambitions took it beyond some logical tie-ins (like Dreamworks' 2011 kid flick Rio). On November 8th, the aggravated avians will be going where pretty much every single major franchise has gone before: to the Star Wars universe.
