Earlier today, both the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10 started receiving small ~1MB OTAs to Android 4.2.1 with fixes to the missing month of December in the People app, among other things. The corresponding open source files are being pushed by Google to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) as we speak, Android release engineer Jean-Baptiste Queru just announced in the Android Building group.

The build number is JOP40D and the tag is android-4.2.1_r1.

When Hurricane Sandy pummeled the eastern seaboard late last month, no tech event was spared - including AllThingsD's Dive Into Mobile conference.

If you're not familiar with this particular technological get-together, you probably should be. Dive Into Mobile is where the big guys in mobile tech sit down and talk shop with Walt Mossberg and friends, and the show is particularly famous (or infamous, as hindsight may have it) to Android fans as the venue in which Android 3.0 Honeycomb and the Motorola XOOM were unveiled.

Ho there, adventurers! Are you tired of running through the jungle, and ready to do some actual exploring? Then Hamilton's Great Adventure might just be for you. It's the latest in Nvidia's stable of ported games exclusive to Tegra hardware. Don't let the title fool you: Hamilton's Great Adventure is in fact a puzzle gam through and through, with some light twitching and platforming elements for some extra spice. The game is available now, at a pricy $3.99 split up into two chapters.

Over the past couple weeks, we've watched Amazon Wireless continuously drop the price of the Galaxy Note II across various carriers, and AT&T's version of the behemoth is the latest to face the price-cutting ax. Effective today, customers who sign a new agreement with Big Blue can grab this powerhouse phablet for $175 - the lowest price we've seen yet on the device. If you're an existing customer looking to upgrade to the Note II, don't sweat too hard - it's only $200 for you.

The Nexus 4 has been in-and-out of stock like a California burger joint, but today it's back—as long as you don't mind getting it from T-Mobile. The subsidized hardware with a two-year contract is available again from everyone's fourth-favorite carrier. If you want one without a contract, though, that's still an option. It will just run you $500.

Of course, there's no knowing how long this will last. We'll update this post if the device well dries up, but if you really want one before the holidays, ordering sooner would be better than later.

After beginning its steady march to wide release in Germany a few weeks ago, the Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) update for the Galaxy Note 10.1 is making its way to more European nations today. The UK, Spain, and various Nordic nations (presumably Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland) have the firmware available now (grab it here or here), if you're feeling impatient. Otherwise, just keep hitting that "check update" button over the next week or two, and sweet Jelly Bean goodness should be on its way to you shortly.

Chrome for Android is expected to start aligning with desktop releases of the browser by "early next year," according to a post by the Chrome team on Google+.

Q. Chrome for Android is still at v18, while regular Chrome is at v23. When will Chrome for Android catch up?

A. Soon! We expect an update to Chrome for Android starting with a developer update to happen before the end of the year, and we’re actively working towards aligning releases across all platforms, including Android, starting early next year.

Earlier this month, we reported on a pretty big omission in Android 4.2's People app: Google forgot December. So, any birthdays, anniversaries, or other important dates you may have needed to note for that month were simply impossible to document. Now, though, it looks like El Goog is fixing that issue with a small 1.1MB update. This OTA is, of course, labeled as Android 4.2.1, and aside from the December fix, we're not sure of what else it may bring.

Now that's more like it! Big G must've learned from its mistakes with the initial launch of the Nexus 4, as it just started sending out notices to those who signed up letting them know that the device will go (back) on sale today at 12:00 Noon PST in the U.S.

That means if you didn't get one the first go around, today's your chance to give it another shot. Hopefully they won't sell out in a matter of minutes like they did the last time.

There are many ways to show your support for Android beyond your device itself, and some of them are even tasteful. If you've bought every Bugdroid-sporting case, T-shirt and bumper sticker, there's just one thing left: a green robot Micro-USB charger. Of course, the Android mascot's ubiquitous shade of green isn't for everybody, so Andru creators Gen have been preparing a darker version to match your ebony desk and jet-black monitors.
