The Galaxy Note II is getting an OTA update. Hooray, right?! Eh, kind of. The update clocks in at 165MB, but it doesn't bump the Android version or even add new features. What you're getting is 165MB of updates to Google and AT&T preloaded apps.

Mysterious Verizon Galaxy S4 Variant (SCH-I545L) Isn't A Limited Edition Or LTE-A Device, Turns Out To Be For Rural LTE Partners

A few days ago Android watchers were abuzz after a new version of Verizon's Galaxy S4 appeared on Samsung's site. Listed as model number SCH-I545L, there was some speculation it could be a spec bump on the original GS4. Maybe even a version of the device with LTE-Advanced? The truth behind that extra "L" at the end of the model number is much more mundane. It's for rural carriers, according to Verizon.

Sprint's LG G2 Pre-Orders Open Up On October 11th, Shipping "In Time For The Holidays" With Free Quick Window Case

Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile have all gotten their houses in order for the launch of LG's new flagship, but Sprint seems to be a bit behind the curve. The carrier has only just announced a pre-order for the G2, and it's October 11th - almost a month after AT&T and Verizon will have the phone on shelves, and a solid two weeks after T-Mobile. Sprint doesn't even have an official launch date for the phone, instead stating in the press release that the G2 will come "in time for the holidays," and that more availability information will be available at a later date.

T-Mobile Moto X Pops Up On Motorola's Site For $599.99, But It's Out Of Stock [Update: Black Version Is In Stock]

Motorola used very carefully chosen words in the original Moto X PR statement when the phone was announced. We were told the device would be in AT&T, US Cellular, Verizon, and Sprint stores. It looks like that's happening as planned. The PR also said the device would be available for all carriers, including T-Mobile, direct from Motorola. Now the device has appeared on Motorola.com for $599.99.

Moto X Bootloader Can Now Be Unlocked On Sprint, US Cellular, And Latin American Models, Developer Editions Still MIA

As promised, Motorola is making at least some of the bootloaders on its new flagship Moto X unlockable, opening the door for relatively easy root privileges, custom recoveries, and aftermarket ROMs. The Sprint, US Cellular, and forthcoming Latin American models of the Moto X can now be unlocked using Motorola's My Moto Care portal.

Verizon Rolls Out Surprise Update To The Droid X After 18 Month Break, Includes Security Fixes And Improved Public Safety Alerts

It's a situation too many Android users are intimately familiar with. You get a shiny new phone, and you love it. Then the days turn to weeks, the weeks to months, and suddenly a new version of your phone is released. Oh sure, at first you think it will be fine. The new phone is faster and thinner, but you like your smartphone. Then the updates dry up like a puddle in the unforgiving desert sun, and your phone slides slowly into complete obsolescence.
