Don't get too excited if you see an update notification on your T-Mobile HTC One or Galaxy Note II today – they're both getting minor updates. Both devices stay on Android 4.1.2, but cheer up. There are phones that don't get any update love.

One

The HTC One update has version number 1.27.531.8, and is coming via OTA. You may notice this isn't even the 1.29 HTC software revision containing fixes for the camera and sluggish buttons.

Vine is a way to shoot short videos and share them on Twitter, but it's been an iOS exclusive for the last few months. Well, Twitter has finally seen fit to grace the lowly Android users with some mini videos. Happily, the interface has a bit of Holo to it.

The Vine app is still propagating in the Play Store, so don't be alarmed if the link doesn't work yet.

ASUS Fonepad Note FHD 6_1_th

Asus really went big with announcements at Computex this year, naming 11 new products in about 30 minutes. One of the really interesting devices to make the cut was the Fonepad Note FHD 6, a smaller cousin to the 7-inch model announced earlier this year at MWC. In many ways, the super-sized phone blends qualities from other popular devices like the HTC One's front-facing speakers and a smart stylus from the Galaxy Note.

wm_ASUS MeMO Pad HD 7_1

You think it's over? It's not over until ASUS says it is. And in addition to a handful of other hardware announcements at Computex, they've pulled the wraps off of a pair of more standard tablets in their MeMO line. The 10-inch MeMO Pad FHD (for "Full HD," we presume) is the more interesting of the two, thanks to its 1920x1080 screen IPS screen and unconventional Intel Atom processor. The MeMO Pad HD 7 is a slight refresh of the original, budget-friendly MeMO Pad, this time with a high-res screen and a quad-core processor.

New ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity_1

Watch out, Transformer fans, ASUS is about to give you something pretty great to drool over. As part of its Computex 2013 announcement, the OEM gave away details of the shiny new replacement to the once reigning king of Android tablets, the Transformer Pad Infinity.

Virtually every spec will see a significant improvement as part of the refresh, owing quite a bit to the equipped Tegra 4 system-on-a-chip. Most notably, the display resolution will rival Samsung's current leader, the Nexus 10, at 2560 x 1600.

The updated version of RPG classic Final Fantasy III has managed to sell over 100,000 copies on Android, despite its super-premium $16 price tag. Square Enix is hoping to replicate that success with the next entry in the series, predictably titled Final Fantasy IV. It's available now for Android 2.3.3 and higher, at the same $15.99 price. If you're looking to party like it's 1991, head to the Play Store now.

GALAXY Tab 3 10.1-inch (1)

We knew it was coming. After the rather disappointing reveal of the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3, Samsung unveiled two new models today. The 8-inch Tab 3 bears a striking resemblance to the Galaxy Note 8, while the 10.1-inch version extends the design language first introduced in the Galaxy S III smartphone to the 10.1-inch form factor... buttons and all. Both models are mild refreshes of older Tab variants (though the 8-inch Galaxy Tab 3 could bee seen as a mix of the 8.9 and 7.7).

Today at Computex 2013, ASUS' Chairman Jonney Shih gave birth to no less than 11 products in a span of less than an hour, a surprising rate of fire we're not used to even at flagship events like MWC or CES, let alone Computex. Not bad at all, ASUS.

Undoubtedly, the most interesting and important announcement was the Transformer Book Trio, "the world’s first three-in-one mobile device." The Trio actually consists of two pieces:

  1. An 11.6" tablet with a 1920x1080 IPS display and 64GB of internal storage onboard, powered by a mobile-friendly 2GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2580 chip (32nm Clover Trail+).
