Owners of almost all versions of the HTC One should have received the update to Android 4.3 by now. There's the Google Play Edition, the international version, the Developer Edition, and carrier variants for AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. So what's missing from this picture? If you said "Verizon," then congratulations, you've finally become just as jaded and cynical as your friendly neighborhood tech journalist.

The Galaxy S4 is a neat phone, but man is it ever big. If a 5-inch device simply won't fit in your life, consider the Galaxy S4 Mini. This svelte device is headed to the US next month and it will be sold by AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and U.S. Cellular. The carriers should announce availability shortly, but no pricing is available yet.

The GS4 Mini retains the visual style of the Galaxy S4, but the specs have been reduced a bit.

The Verizon Galaxy S4 started seeing a new software update earlier today, but there was no word on what it contained. Verizon has yet to update its support docs, but Samsung has been so kind as to post the details of firmware version I545VRUDMI1. As expected, it's a minor bump that keeps the device on Android 4.2.2.

Verizon has pumped an OTA system update down the pipeline for the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 that adds a few nice features that should pump more life into a tablet that is now a year and a half old. Owners who have maxed out their 16 or 32GB of internal storage will be pleased to know that they can now move apps to an SD card, an option that can be a godsend for a tablet that may be used primarily for gaming.

Last week we reported that the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 had a root method from a couple of enterprising gentlemen over at XDA. The same team-up of designgears and Chainfire has now reproduced the Root De La Vega root method for Verizon's Note 3 (model number SM-N900V), which isn't quite as appropriate as far as the name goes, but it's just as awesome.

The same unfortunate conditions apply for the Verizon version of this exploit.

It's a good day to be a Samsung fan: they've delivered right on schedule. The flagship Galaxy Note 3 is available on Verizon starting today at the standard $299.99 subsidized price tag, $699.99 (ouch) unsubsidized, or $29.31 a month on the Edge plan. If you prefer your notation experience both larger and without a two-year contract, the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition (WiFi only) is also going on sale at the usual retail locations, starting at $549.99 for the 16GB model.

In the storied history of ugly phones, there are few that can stand up to the horrendous might of the Casio G’zOne Commando. This device may not be a looker, but it's rugged and now it has a spiffy new software update. Version C771M140 is available to download now for anyone still hauling the original Commando around.

The new software package makes a few changes to the functionality of the Commando, but it doesn't push it past Android 2.3.

Verizon may have been last out of the gate with the HTC One, but at least it's getting some update love. The One is getting its first OTA update on Big Red with a few notable improvements. You can start mashing the update button, if you like.

Verizon is the only major carrier in the US who offers the HTC One with Android 4.2, but that doesn't mean squat if you intend to flash a custom ROM on it anyway. Sense 5 is fast, attractive, and stable - but it isn't for everyone. The app drawer could use some work, and the launcher isn't exactly the easiest to customize. Besides, the available options pale in comparison to what CyanogenMod offers out of the box.
