After catching sight of Jelly Bean for Samsung's Galaxy SIII on video, then seeing a leaked build for the i9300 pop up on XDA, it looks like T-Mobile's variant of Sammy's latest powerhouse has its own leaked Jelly Bean goodness.

Earlier today, XDA user LuffarJoh posted up what seems to be an early (though enticing) OTA file for T-Mobile's Galaxy SIII (aka T999) that will bring your device up to 4.1.1.

LG has launched a teaser for its next flagship smartphone. While we don't have a name for this device just yet, the specs are very impressive. The phone will be powered by a quad-core S4 Pro processor (APQ8064) with an Adreno 320 GPU. As you may recall, the dual-core S4 is the chip that manages to give the Tegra 3 a run for its money in some benchmarks due to its 28nm architecture (versus the Tegra 3's 40nm).

Yesterday, we saw a leaked image of an HTC phone said to be internally called the "Proto." Thanks to an eagle-eyed reader, it was brought to our attention that this isn't a new device at all; it's a slightly more powerful version of the Desire V that's already been released in international markets.

The only difference between the two? The Proto is said to sport a 1GHz dual-core processor, whereas the Desire V has a 1GHz single-core chip.

A platform can never have too many zombies, and thanks to a new co-op survival game called Call of Mini, Android now has a few more.

The popular iOS game came to the Play Store yesterday, and allows players to work with each other and take down hoards of zombies with whatever weapons they can find. Machine gun, chainsaw, rocket launcher, anything goes.

As well as a co-op mode, the game also allows you to play against other people in VS mode, from which you can gain various rewards.

Whenever you hear someone talking about Facebook's mobile app, the most common complaint is always how slow it is. Even your news feed can take what feels like an age to load, and that's before you've started navigating through your events and photos of friends.

The reason for this is that the Facebook app uses HTML5, so it doesn't perform as well as other apps which are written natively for a particular platform.

After the successful landing of NASA's Curiosity rover on Mars this month, space exploration is once again at the forefront of everyone's minds. While the rover goes about its mission on the red planet, there are plenty of other exciting projects happening closer to home.

One of those projects is the CubeSat Launch initiative (CSLI), in which nanosatellites built by teams across the United States are hitching a ride into orbit on rockets planned for upcoming launches.

While the tech world waits with bated breath for the conclusion of Apple's United States case against the world's most prolific smartphone maker, another case is just wrapping up in Samsung's home country of South Korea. The Wall Street Journal reports that a Seoul court found both Apple and Samsung in violation of each other's patents, with the former violating two of Samsung's patents and the latter violating one of Apple's.

Last week, after Google Maps received a public transit-minded update, it became apparent that the app wasn't playing nice with the HTC Rezound. Befuddled user reports spilled in, relaying tales of inexplicable reboots and crashes. As always, the community found a solution but, unfortunately, the only solution ended up being the "uninstall updates" button.

T-Mobile today acknowledged the Maps update's issues with certain handsets, posting a support document related to the HTC Sensation 4G's problems with the app.

After disappearing from T-Mobile's own website and appearing as backordered on others, a matter we posted on just a bit earlier today, we've heard from a very reliable industry source that T-Mobile is putting the Galaxy Note on "EOL" (end of life). We have every reason to believe this person (though they spoke on condition of anonymity), and today's events make it pretty obvious that's what's going on. The EOL date is estimated around November 1st, though that remains subject to change based on how quickly T-Mobile's remaining inventory is depleted.

Today, the Verge posted photos of what is supposedly known internally as the HTC Proto. Previous reports said that it would be a 4" device with a dual-core Snapdragon processor, a 5-megapixel camera, 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM and HSPA support. It's no beast by any means, but still a solid device for a low-end phone.

The device continues HTC's preference for capacitive buttons on the front. Unlike the One V, however, this phone does not appear to have the trademark "chin".
