Verizon's ASUS ZenPad Z8 tablet is receiving its Android 7.0 Nougat update

Android Oreo (yes, I'm calling it) is almost here, but not all devices are equal when it comes to update speed.

In the wake of the horrific concert bombing in Manchester, AT&T is offering free calls to the area and will credit any calls or SMS messages made to England from the 22nd to 24th. Virgin Media is making all calls to Manchester landlines in the 0161 prefix area free. Virgin Mobile in the US is also waiving fees, as is Sprint.
