OK, OK... we've seen it before. And before that. And before that. But, it's the new Nexus phone, and we want to see as much of it as we can before the official announcement on Monday. Thanks to @evleaks, we have what seems to be a final render of the device, and this time it doesn't appear to be running a custom ROM.

And there you have it - the Nexus 4 in all of its glory.

Google is set to officially announce the LG-built Nexus 4 on Monday, but it looks like LG's UK division got a little ahead of itself and has posted an official LGE960 quick start guide online for all to see. This device has been thoroughly leaked by this point, but there are a few interesting tidbits to be gleaned from this PDF.

First, the file name identifies this as a US device with 16GB of storage.

At this point, there's no doubt that the Nexus 10 is a real thing - we've already seen the quick start guide (among other, more ambiguous data), after all. But now, Vic Gundotra has posted some images to his Google+ page showing off what the Nexus 10's camera is capable of. I must say, it's actually pretty impressive, especially for a tablet.

EXIF data reveals all! Or maybe just a little bit.

At this point, this one online retailer has leaked more information than we have space on the internet to put it. This time, the inventory system that previously leaked the name of the Nexus 4 is showing with color options and a price tag in tow. Apparently this device will cost £389 without a SIM. For our American readers, the exchange rate would bring that out to about $628, though we imagine they'll massage the number a bit by the time it hits the states.

It seems a little fitting that the first site to give us an indication of when we'll get our hands on the Nexus 4 was also the first site to leak its name. According to a device listing page that has now been pulled, the newest, shiniest, sparkliest Google hardware may be available pretty soon after the announcement next week. The Carphone Warehouse says that pre-orders will ship on October 30th.

I've been debating posting this all day for the reasons I'll explain below, but based on the feedback from a number of people who claim to be Sprint insiders, the information leaked earlier today in an XDA post by user supercholo may be legitimate. The leak suggests that the Jelly Bean update for Sprint's Galaxy S III may be arriving starting tomorrow, October 25th. Here is the alleged internal memo stating so:

Whether the memo is 100% legitimate or not, and whether Sprint actually follows up tomorrow remains to be seen - it's not the first time the company played tricks on its employees, and it's not the first time a software update was delayed.

We've been hearing rumors of Verizon's massive 5" HTC phablet codenamed DLX for weeks now, but now we may have an idea of what the device's release name could be: the Droid DNA.

THIS IS CONFIDENTIAL.

According to a leaked MAP (minimum advertised price) document that fell into the hands of Android Central, the DNA could hit Big Red's shelves around November 20th for the typical $200 price tag. Then again, it also has the Note II listed with today's date, yet we haven't heard anything about it from Verizon.

Just a little while ago, the first purported press shots of the LG Nexus 4 hit Twitter, thanks to EVLeaks. Almost immediately after looking at the image, though, it's clear something's... not right.

Let's start with the notification bar - look familiar? If you've ever run the AOKP ROM, it should. Both the centered clock and battery percentage (the one actually in the battery icon - it's barely visible in the render) are signature customizations of the ROM.

We actually first heard about the upcoming Spectrum 2 for Verizon back in late August, but we now have full details, along with a couple of images of the device, thanks to Best Buy. The Spectrum 2's page went live at BB just a little while ago, revealing basically everything we didn't already know about the device.

A couple of weeks ago, Xperia blog posted what appeared to be User-Agent Profile information revealing the existence of Sony's purported upcoming flagship, the C650X codenamed Odin.

The information seemed to point toward an Xperia device running Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, with separate rumors suggesting a 5" display at 1080x1920 resolution (441ppi), a Qualcomm S4 Pro quad-core processor, and 2GB of RAM.

Today, a photo has surfaced that, according to Concept-Phones, depicts the yet-unseen Odin.
