The Nexus 10 is official at last, and it's just as fantastic as we all thought it would be. The Samsung-made 10.1" tablet packs an iPad-destroying 2560x1600 display for 300ppi, which is known in the scientific community as "more pixels than your eye can handle." The slate will also ship with Android 4.2, and the updated Nexus 7-like UI.

In addition, the tablet boasts up to nine hours of video playback and 500 hours of standby time.

Huawei has been steadily increasing its high-end offerings for the last year or so, and their latest offering is the top-of-the-line Honor 2. Last year's model gets upgraded in just about every possible way, starting with Huawei's own quad-core K3 V2 processor clocked at a blistering 1.4Ghz. Pair that with 2GB of RAM and you've got potent hardware in anybody's money... though to put down a pre-order, you'll need some yuan.

Following yesterday's price drop at GameStop, it looks like the Nexus 7 is slashing prices everywhere. Staples, Sam's Club, Office Depot, Wal-Mart, and a few other places all list the tablet at $199 (or a rough foreign equivalent). What's a little more rare is the 32GB Nexus 7 going up for sale in a few locations, though it's unclear how approved that is. Sam's Club has it up for order here, and PC Advisor is reporting that at least one user was able to buy the slate from PC World by asking for it, though it wasn't on display.

Way back in July, we saw a leak revealing several new Nexus 7 accessories, including a Pogo Dock, "premium cover," and multiple colors of travel cover, like the grey one that has been available since launch. Two new colors -- pink and light blue -- of that case have now showed up in the Play Store, with availability listed as "coming soon."

As you can see, the two cases are priced equal to their grey counterpart, coming in at $20.

Now you're talking, Square Enix. After releasing Final Fantasy after Final Fantasy to Android, the RPG legend has gotten around to releasing everyone's favorite non-terminal adventure: Chrono Trigger! For the uninitiated, what's taking you so long? This game has been out since the Super NES and has been emulated to death! Heck, it's even available on the DS. You're out of excuses now, it's time to play.

Now Androis users can also experience the entire, time-spanning adventure.

At this point, the LG Nexus 4 is the most-leaked phone since, well, that other phone. Today a video from the carrier 3 in Sweden has popped up on YouTube with a near two minute look at the device, showing us around Android 4.2 a bit. The phone itself looks just like all the pictures we've seen. The video also confirms the Quick Settings menu Ron found. Conveniently, users will access it via a button, not a second pull-down shade.

Most of our readers consider themselves power users, and rightly so. Perhaps you don't have a spare 1.8 seconds to laboriously tap the Home button, then the app launcher, then that app you use every third Tuesday. Well, obsessive customizers, your new best friend on the Google Play Store is FlipLauncher, a free app that embeds up to five completely adjustable launcher ribbons over any and every part of Android.

Don't let its admittedly plain looks fool you: FlipLauncher is surprisingly versatile.

Adding more fuel to the Nexus 7 rumor fire, Google has just pulled the 7" slate's 16GB variant off its virtual shelves, listing the device as "coming soon."

This comes after some fast and furious price drops were spotted at both GameStop and Office Depot, taking the 16GB N7 down to the rumor-approved $199 price point, perhaps in preparation for the arrival of a 32GB (and, dare we say, potentially 3G-enabled) variant of the device.

Hurricane Sandy is just not letting anyone catch a break. In addition to causing the cancelation of Google's Android event, where we were expecting the company to tell us about a whole bunch of fun stuff, it looks like D: Dive Into Mobile is also being postponed.  Among many others, Andy Rubin was scheduled to speak at the event.

As of right now, All Things D has not said when the event will be rescheduled for.

As some of you may have noticed, I'm Android Police's resident AOKP nut, running the popular custom ROM on both on my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7. Good news, everyone: Android Open Kang Project has reached Milestone 1 of its Jelly Bean release, and official downloads are now available for all flavors of Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7, and Nexus S. More supported devices should be updated tonight and tomorrow.
