T-Mobile Pushing A Couple Of Small OTA Updates To The Galaxy S II, Galaxy S III

Last week, we reported on an OTA update for the T-Mobile Galaxy S II that brought a "Qualcomm fix," along with some general security enhancements and Vlingo S Voice improvements. It looks like that update was delayed shortly after it started rolling out, as Team Pink just updated its support docs with details of the update with a set rollout date of January 31st, which is today.

Thus, if you didn't get the update last week, then you should expect it to hit sometime over the next few days.

Chrome Beta Updated, Adds Support For chrome://flags

When Chrome was first released for Android almost a year ago, one of my complaints was its lack of support for chrome://flags and access to experimental settings. The day has finally come that this is now a feature of my favorite mobile browser, albeit in its beta form.

The updated browser – which just hit the Play Store a bit ago – brings that feature, and that feature alone. Once you've installed the update, just open a new tab and enter "chrome://flags" into the address bar to access some neat experimental features of the browser, just like on its desktop counterparts.

ASUS Padfone 2 Updated To Build 10.4.11.13 – Here's The Full Changelog

Less than a month after its last firmware update (to build 10.4.9.6), ASUS' Padfone 2 is getting another incremental bump. The Padfone 2, which we know as the turducken of the mobile world, already got Jelly Bean 4.1.1 in December, so updates hence have naturally focused on the usual performance, stability, and other enhancements. Today's update to build 10.4.11.13 brings, among other things, new camera firmware, improved navigation, and a handful of optimizations.

Skype Updated With Portrait Calling On Tablets, Portuguese, Norwegian, And UK English Languages

Well, it's a start. While the Skype app for Android still has a bizarre and uncomfortable habit of forcing landscape mode, today's update at least allows users to use the portrait orientation if they're making a call. That's nice. Especially since the positioning of front-facing cameras on devices like the Nexus 7 make landscape video chats extremely awkward. Now if only we could get this for the rest of the interface, that would be great.

T-Mobile Sending A Small OTA Update To Its Variant Of The Galaxy S II, Mostly Packs Security Fixes

A small, 11MB over-the-air update is on its way to T-Mobile's variant of the Galaxy S II this morning, which brings a few minor enhancements to the year-old device. Among those, you'll find a "Qualcomm fix," along with Vlingo S Voice improvements, and some general security enhancements.

As usual with Samsung devices, there are a couple of different ways you can apply the update to your device. First – and probably the easiest – is to just pull it via OTA; you can either wait until the automatic notification shows up letting you know that an update is available, or head into Settings > About Phone > System Updates to manually check.

Verizon Pushing A Small Security Patch To The Galaxy Note II, Likely Fixes The 'Exynos Bug'

Note II owners on Big Red, an OTA update is coming your way. Don't get too excited, though – it's just a small security patch that fixes the dreaded Exynos bug. Thus, if it's anything like the Exynos patch for the Galaxy S III, you can also expect a new bootloader. That usually means bad news for the root community (especially when it's a Verizon phone we're talking about), and it's likely no different in this case.

Facebook App Updated To v.2.1, Brings Voice Messaging, Better Sharing, And Faster Photos

It's nice to finally have Facebook pay at least a little attention to its mobile apps for a change. Today, the social networking giant is rolling out an incremental update that brings a couple of new features. Of course, there's the big one: remember that new voice messaging thing that Messenger got? Now the regular app has it, too.

Here's the full changelog:

What's in this version:

• Open and view photos faster
• Share your friends' stories to timelines, pages and groups
• Send voice messages when you have more to say

The bulk of the new changes will likely be of little consequence, but if you've ever been mildly frustrated by your inability to share a friend's posts to different pages or groups, your life will get just a smidge easier.

Dolphin Browser Updated, Now Offers One-Tap Sharing, Cross-Device Sync, And Evernote/Box Support

If there's one thing to say about the team behind Dolphin browser, it's that they can't be discouraged. Despite the availability of Chrome and Chrome Beta for Android, Dolphin is still going strong – and things like today's update are likely the reason.

The update, which bumps Dolphin up to 9.2.0, brings three fairly major features: one-tap sharing, cross-devices sync (called Dolphin Connect), and built-in Evernote support. But what does that actually mean?

T-Mobile's Galaxy Note II Getting A Bug-Fix OTA, Patches The 'Exynos Exploit'

If you have a stock Note II on T-Mobile, it's time to hit the "check updates" button, because a fix for that nasty Exynos bug is on its way. If you're not familiar with said bug, it basically allowed any app to root and gain full access to any Exynos 4-powered system. And that's a bad thing.

Fortunately, Samsung recognized the issue and started working on a patch almost immediately.
