Snapseed, The Image Editor That Google Bought After It Won iPad App Of The Year, Is Now On Android

There are no shortage of image editors on Android. Even Adobe, which makes the class-leading Photoshop, has a version of its editor on the platform. Today, though, Google gets one of its very own: Snapseed. You may recall this particular piece of software when it was demoed by NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang at CES this year. At the time, it was only available on the iPad where it had won App of the Year in 2011.

Google Publishes Sprint Galaxy Nexus Factory Image For The First Time (Android 4.1.1)

After Google's release of "experimental" binaries for Sprint's Galaxy Nexus variant, Jean-Baptiste Queru (Chief Android Release Engineer) confirmed that the binaries represented not full AOSP support, but the "taking down [of] many hurdles that were preventing [AOSP support]," citing bugs in the network stack as one of the issues yet to be addressed.

Less than one month later, it would appear that those issues have been sorted, as Google today published the toroplus' factory image for the first time.

Hurricane Sandy may have stopped Google's live announcement of the new Nexus family (and Android 4.2) yesterday, but it didn't stop Google from releasing a truckload of information on its upcoming products online, including the Nexus 10.

The Nexus 10, in case you missed it, is Google's new 10" slate (in partnership with Samsung) that has an incredible 2560x1600 (~300ppi) display, Samsung's latest and greatest A15 dual-core processor at 1.7GHz, and 2GB RAM.

Apple Granted Another Slide-To-Unlock Patent That Covers More Than Just Predefined Paths

Following up on last year's slide-to-unlock patent grab (which itself built on a patent granted in 2010), Apple has been granted another, yet more expansive slide-to-unlock patent, one which ditches the previous patents' emphasis on "predefined paths" in favor of more ambiguous language covering the movement of an unlock image to "an unlock region" on a device's display.

While US Patent 8,286,103 is largely similar to Apple's previous two slide-to-unlock, its language is considerably broader.

[Updated] Leaked Images Reveal That Android-Powered Nikon Camera You've Totally Always Wanted

Okay, so maybe David's not looking forward to a point-and-shoot running Gingerbread, but someone probably is! Well, Ashton Q. Someone, here are some photos that should whet your appetite. Nikon Rumors is reporting the first alleged leaked images of the Coolpix S800c, an Android-powered camera.

Oddly, the center image above does not match the other two. It's unclear if this means there will be a whole line of Android cameras (unlikely), if a single image of a different camera got mixed in (probably), or if the whole thing is fake (possible).

[Update: Probably Fake] Alleged Photo Of The Galaxy Note 2 Surfaces, Appears To Match Previously Leaked Digitizer

Update: Looks like this may be another fake thrown into the game. A nearly-identical mockup was posted on Twitter not long ago, so this could just be another elaborate hoax.

We've been hearing rumors of the Galaxy Note 2 for several weeks now, and a pretty believable image of the device has now made its way onto the net ahead of Samsung's August 29th event where we fully expect the device to be announced.

Official Twitpic App Released For Android, Helps You Photograph Your, Like, Totally Interesting Bowl Of Cereal

Though the service's popularity has been waning since competitors sprang up (and Twitter itself jumped in the game), Twitpic remains a major host for images on Twitter. They're not going down without a fight, either, and the company has released its official Android app dedicated to sharing photos on Twitter. With a UI heavily inspired by the Twitter app itself (duh), it allows you to browse through photos hosted by Twitpic on your Twitter timeline, as well as edit and share your photos.

Google Releases Full Factory OS Image For The Nexus 7 "nakasi" Tablet (Android 4.1, JRN84D)

Google just dropped the full OS image for the recently announced at Google I/O Nexus 7 tablet. The image allows you to restore the tablet back to full stock Android 4.1 (build JRN84D) in case something goes wrong.

There are no surprises here - the Nexus 7 is a true Nexus device after all.

Nexus 7 Shows Its Face Ahead Of Today's Announcement

We've been hearing about the mysterious "Google tablet" for months now and, more recently, have seen quite a bit of supporting evidence that it will be called the Nexus 7. We've even seen the back and sides of the device. What we haven't seen, however, is the interface.

Until now.

What you're looking at there is an official image of the Nexus 7, directly from Google's Play Store servers.

Droid Does Campaign Decides To Trade In World Domination For A More Family-Friendly Image

There comes a time in every action hero's life where he gets tired of the explosions and the fighting and race horses duct taped to SCUD missiles, and longs for a simple life. Camping and going on road trips with the family, getting a nice office job, sending your daughter off to get kidnapped in Paris. Verizon's Droid Does campaign has hit a similar milestone. After very successfully selling a metric ton of Android devices with harsh, scary looking robot arms and not to mention evil, horror-esque iPhone taunts, the ad campaign is going for a less threatening and more heart-warming approach.
