unlock_i777_Galaxy_s_2

Months after its flighty sibling, the Galaxy S II Skyrocket, received an update to Android 4.1.2, it seems that the vanilla GS2 on AT&T is finally ready for its Jelly Bean bump. Threads on XDA and the official AT&T forums confirm that the update - build number UCMD8 - is now available, just check for an update through Kies.

We don't yet have a changelog for the update, but you can assume that for Galaxy S II users, the number of changes coming from the Ice Cream Sandwich TouchWiz builds won't be huge.

There's a place in every carrier's line up for a mid-range phone, and that's what the Sprint Vital is. We got the early details on this device back in March when it was known as the ZTE Quantum, and the official announcement jives with the leak pretty well. This phone has a few notable features, but the hardware is a bit lackluster.

Every few months, Google experiments with a new design, widget, or pattern by injecting it into one of its most important apps. Preceding I/O 2013, we were treated to a steady stream of updates including the new Navigation Drawer. As we have seen, the latest GMail app joined the herd, but also gained a tweaked version of the now common pull-to-refresh gesture. While Google was kind enough to supply us with a library for the Navigation Drawer, anybody hoping to add the newly-stylized refresh is left to fend for themselves.

I have a confession to make: most of the programs you might want to run on this emulator were written before I was born. But if you're the kind of seasoned geek who really did watch the original Star Wars in theaters (and watched it in Europe), you might just remember having an Amstrad brand computer in your basement. Developer Kokak (who we've featured before) has released Droid-CPC, a full emulator for the Amstrad line of PCs.

Google Music has probably lured a few Spotify users away with its tight Android integration and low introductory price. But what about all those meticulously constructed Spotify playlists? There is no official way to bring them along for the ride, but a developer has worked out a quick and dirty way to make it happen.

Portify is a neat little tool that logs into both Spotify and Google Music, and manages to move your playlists over.

Amazon has already made it obsolete to leave the house to shop for most non-food items, but now it's taking care of your grocery needs – if you live in LA or Seattle. AmazonFresh launched in Seattle a few months ago as a way for users to order a variety of fresh food items for home delivery. The expansion of the service to LA is the first new market that has been added.

GALAXY Ace 3 3G DS (1)

It's been said that a rising tide lifts all boats. So it is with the smartphone market: today Samsung announced the latest addition to its budget line, with hardware and software slowly rising as flagships push for newer horizons. The Galaxy Ace 3 is the latest of Samsung's innumerable additions to an already huge smartphone lineup, packing a 4" WVGA LCD screen, a 1Ghz dual-core processor (1.2Ghz for the LTE model), and Sammy's highly-skinned version of Android 4.2.

If $350 for the newer Galaxy Note 8.0 is too much and you're looking for something a bit bigger anyway, you'd do well to head over to the geek-friendly Woot.com sometime today. They're offering the 16GB WiFi Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 for $299.99, although it's a refurbished model. That's a solid $200 off the retail price, though you can certainly get it for less if you're prepared to hunt (Amazon has the new 16GB version for $449).

In their never-ending quest to bring CyanogenMod to every Android device on the face of the planet (or at least all of them with unlocked bootloaders, modern hardware, and a big user base - not all that many, in fact, forget I mentioned it) the CM team is expanding the 10.1 build to three new devices this weekend. The unlocked international LTE version of the Galaxy S4 (GT-i9505) and Cricket's branded variant both get new nightly builds of the ROM, as does the WiFi-only version of Sony's Xperia Tablet Z.
