According to TmoNews, some T-Mobile HTC One S users are receiving an over-the-air update to their devices this morning, bringing a much-awaited bump to Android 4.0.4 and Sense 4.1.

This update should be basically the same as the one that hit the international One S, One X and AT&T One X, which allows the remapping of the recent apps button. This is a hugely important change, because if the recent apps button is remapped to behave as a menu button, the legacy virtual menu button (that is big and ugly and takes up a bunch of screen space) goes away entirely.

When Matt reviewed Tiny Bang Story yesterday, he found it big on imagination, but gameplay came up short. If the $3 price tag was too large of a risk for you, though, maybe this sale will be more your size. HeroCraft has shrunk the price by two thirds, bringing it down to an outright miniscule $1. Any smaller and you'd need a magnifying glass to find it.

Okay, I'm done with the little jokes now.

When ASUS announced the Jelly Bean update for the Transformer Prime in Sweden yesterday, there were two questions that immediately popped up: what about the rest of the world? and when will the Infinity get updated?

We now have answers to both, even if in the simplest of terms: soon.

Update: ASUS rep Gary Key took to the XDA forums to give users a better timeline of when the updates should begin rolling out.

The now-infamous @evleaks has leaked yet another upcoming smartphone today, this time a T-Mobile-branded version of what is dubbed the HTC "One X+." This phone has been rumored for some time, and even shown up in some Incredible-esque regalia, adding to the rumor that it's headed for Verizon.

This phone, though, looks exactly like a standard One X, and without any sort of scale, you probably can't tell the difference.

Update: We inquired to TI about this news, and here's what a spokesperson had to say:

As communicated in this week’s investor event (webcast is available at http://investor.ti.com), the smartphone market has become a less attractive long-term opportunity for TI’s OMAP products, primarily due to vertical integration and market consolidation.  We are reprofiling our investment accordingly, but have no additional details to share at this time.

Overall, TI remains committed to the OMAP platform and our customers.

Boost Mobile has just announced yet another option to its Android-powered entourage: the LG Venice. The 4.3" Venice is touted as an "ultra-thin" and light handset, and at only one-third of an inch thick with a weight of 4.41 oz, it affirms that claim.

The phone ships with fairly average specs: 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 5MP rear shooter, VGA front camera, and Android 4.0. The device will go on sale beginning October 10th for a modest $219 and is "paired with Boost Mobile's no-contract $55 Android Monthly Unlimited plan."

You may remember that in December of last year, Google announced they had surpassed 10 billion app downloads in the Play Store, and had a $0.10 sale to celebrate. Today, the company is announcing that the Play Store has hit a whopping 25 billion app downloads. It took over 3 years to hit 10 billion; it took just 9 months more to hit 25 billion.

Accordingly, the Play Store is again having a sale for the next five days, with many products discounted to just $0.25:

Every day you’ll be able to choose from a collection of apps from some of the world’s top developers including Gameloft, Electronic Arts, Rovio, runtastic, Full Fat and more.

Looking to steal some of Amazon's limelight, Barnes & Noble tonight announced a new duo of NOOK devices that seem to take aim directly at Amazon's newest additions to the Kindle Fire family.

For some reason, B&N's press release covering the announcement focuses primarily on the tablets' weight – both the 7" NOOK HD and its 9" HD+ counterpart are the "lightest HD and full HD tablets," with the HD+ earning the title of "lightest, lowest-priced full HD tablet ever." There's so much more to the new set of NOOK tablets, though.

Less than a week ago, Motorola updated its ICS upgrade timeline, moving back the tentative release timeframes for many devices. Among those was the Atrix 2, which got its status pushed from "Q3 of 2012" to "further plans coming soon." Initially, that didn't leave us with any sort of good thought, but it looks like we were wrong.

Motorola just released the changelog and other installation information to its My Moto Care site, indicating that the update is indeed coming much sooner than we anticipated.

logitech joystick

Let's get this out of the way: the Logitech Joystick ("for iPad and Android Tablets") is a strange little gadget, an analog solution to a digital problem. It sticks onto your tablet with suction cups, then places a capacitive touch-point below a thumbstick modeled after the more recent generation of game console controllers. Motion is achieved via a coiled plastic spring, and its design allows you to move it around the bezel to adjust to different games.
