Sprint Nexus S 4G Is Even More Officially Getting Jelly Bean Now, According To Documents In Sprint Forums

There may have been a bit of a false start recently, when a Sprint employee took to the community forums to announce that the rollout of Jelly Bean for the Nexus S had begun. Maybe the rep confused the Nexus S for the Galaxy Nexus, as we hadn't heard any reports that users had received the OTA for the older of the two Nexii. Today, though, Sprint has posted in its forums details on the upgrade, including a release date of today, September 11th.

2012-09-11_12h40_34

As previously reported, the build number will be JRO03R. The rollout should be beginning today. While we didn't have reason to doubt the veracity of the Sprint rep from a few days ago, this is even more solid info.

[IFA 2012] Samsung Officially Unveils The Galaxy Camera With A 16.3MP Sensor, 21x Optical Zoom, And More

Samsung's rumored Galaxy Camera, which we saw leak just a short while earlier, is now official. The Jelly Bean packing point-and-shoot is Samsung's first foray into Android-powered cameras, and is in fact helping to shape what could become a successful niche market (after all, we did just see Nikon unveil a new Android-powered point and shoot).

Of course what you're really interested in is the camera's specs. The Galaxy Camera doesn't seem to disappoint on paper, packing a 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor with an impressive 16.3 effective megapixels. Here's a full look:

  • 23mm f/2.8 lens with 21x optical zoom (though we're not sure who manufactured the glass)
  • 4.7" HD Super Clear Touch Display at 308ppi
  • ISO from 100 up to 3200
  • 3G and 4G connectivity
  • An impressive 1.4GHz Quad-core processor
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • 8GB onboard storage, expandable via microSD
  • HDMI 1.4 out
  • A-GPS
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity
  • 1650mAh battery

The camera, despite its 4.7" display, actually seems quite pocketable, carrying a 128.7x70.8x19.1 frame that weighs just 305g.

Official CyanogenMod Nightlies Show Up For T-Mobile LG MyTouch Q (aka C800, aka Eclypse)

Great news for owners of the MyTouch Q, which welcomed the advent of official CyanogenMod tonight. No, not that MyTouch Q. The other one. I know, the naming scheme is not confusing at all.

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.

Tonight's first official nightly build is still CM9 (Ice Cream Sandwich), but I'm sure CM10 (Jelly Bean) will be arriving shortly.

RealPlayer For Android Comes Out Of Beta – RealNetworks SVP Uomoto: 'This Is The Media Player That People Want'

RealPlayer, one of the most well-known media playing solutions available for desktops, has received its own Android app, which came out of beta and hit version 1.0 (officially 0.0.1.0) today. In a press release, Scott Uomoto (SVP Consumer and Helix Divisions, RealNetworks) boldly stated that "this is the media player that people want."

Despite any preconceived notions you may have about RealPlayer, the official Android app already has overwhelmingly high ratings and a somewhat decent feature list – first off, RealPlayer can be used to centralize not just your music, but videos and photos as well. The app also features optimized graphics "for high-res devices" (though the app's interface isn't great), lastFM scrobbling, voice commands for search, lockscreen functionality, video bookmarking, and more.

Toshiba Thrive 10" (Finally) Receiving Update To 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich

Last month, owners of Toshiba's 10-inch Thrive tablet were dealt a blow when the manufacturer announced that the tablet's official update to Ice Cream Sandwich would be delayed to "early Fall." This news came several months after Toshiba had initially indicated an "end of Spring" release target for the update.

After all of that, it appears that the Thrive is finally receiving its update to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich today – for real this time. The update, which users report taking around 30 minutes to download, is rolling out automatically now.

LG Optimus 2X Might Not Receive An Upgrade To ICS After All, Says LG Canada

Way back in November, LG took to Facebook to announce that its high-end handsets would be receiving an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich. Of course, that was eight months ago. A lot can change in that time. Now, LG Canada's twitter account is saying that the Optimus 2X will not be upgraded, and that LG's previous comment on the subject was a "general statement issued from HQ."

2012-07-30_11h22_22

Of course, it's a little hard to understand how "the LG Optimus 2X will receive an upgrade to ICS" could be interpreted as a "general statement". We've reached out to LG for comment and will update as soon as we hear more.

Nexus Q App Updated To Support Devices Running 2.3.3 And Later, YouTube App Gains Q Compatibility

The Nexus Q, unveiled at this year's I/O conference to a somewhat unsure audience, is a device that looks to unify your living room's media experience, allowing the streaming of all your Play Store content to connected speakers and TVs, while also allowing for remote control from your (or your friends') Android devices.

One of the Nexus Q's main claims to fame is that it allows anyone in the room to connect and share Play Store content quickly and easily. Until today, however, Google's Nexus Q app was incompatible with devices not running Android's latest iteration – 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Today's update fixed that, though, opening compatibility to all devices running 2.3.3 Gingerbread and later.

After owners of the Nexus S i9023 and i9020T got an official 4.1.1 Jelly Bean OTA last night, the update has become available for the Nexus S' i9020A variant as well.

Just like before, the update can be downloaded straight from Google's servers, though Google has indicated that the OTA should be rolling out to Nexus S phones on "a number of carriers," meaning the wait for an automatic update prompt shouldn't be long.
