Before we get too far into this, let's point out that this rumor is coming from an Israeli newspaper, so it is easy enough for a company to disavow stories like these. With that disclaimer out of the way: Amazon may be looking into buying Texas Instrument's OMAP business. As we already know, TI has expressed interest in getting out of the mobile game. Not to say they'll stop making processors, but that the focus would be less on tablets and phones, and more on embedded SoCs for a variety of applications (such as automotive, vision, and robotics).

If you're a developer publishing apps on Google Play, the developer console is probably something you're checking every day compulsively. And Google understands that just because you're a developer, you don't need to look at something ugly and boring to track your apps' download and ratings stats, or manage their publication status. Back at I/O in June, Google showed off a bunch of new console features that were "coming soon."

And today, Google is finally unveiling those features in a brand-new version of the developer console, and you can start using it right now.

Back at the end of September, Gameloft released a teaser for its upcoming title Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour. Needless to say, we were pretty blown away by the graphical content and fluid gameplay. Now, the company has released another teaser, this time showing us more detailed gameplay, and some behind-the-scenes insight into the title's creation.

They also give away parts of the storyline for the upcoming title, including the fact that both protagonist and antagonist will be playable characters.

The Bard's Tale is huge in just about every way. It's a 3.5GB download (at most), it's a long, elaborate game and, until now, it was $6, which is not quite expensive, but certainly pricier than the average game. Today's sale, however, brings the cost down to an outright bargain. For $3 you can get the full Cary Elwes experience on your phone or tablet. It's almost unreasonable not to go for it.

If you've been waiting for Android 4.1.2 to hit your GSM Galaxy Nexus (yakju), wait no more. Google has already begun the OTA process, but in case you haven't gotten yours yet, we've got the direct link for manual installation. Yay for you! Here's how to make it happen.

First and foremost, you'll need to meet a couple of prerequisites:

  • You must be using a yakju device. Not takju, yakjuux, yakjuxw, or any other variant.

The European Galaxy S III Jelly Bean update first turned up in Poland about three weeks ago. At the time, we were hoping it was a good indication that the rest of Europe would follow soon after, but that's about the last we've heard of it until today. In the meantime, Samsung did fire up the update in Korea and reiterated it would soon show up in the States.

The worst kept secret in the history of Nexus devices just keeps on giving, and this time it looks like we have unofficial confirmation that LG's new device will indeed be called "Nexus 4".

Employees from LG and Google have both uploaded photos to Google+ using the unreleased device, and the EXIF information for the shots both call the camera that has been used 'Nexus 4'.

Both of the photos were taken on Saturday, and uploaded to the social network over the weekend.

SoftBank, a Japanese telecommunications and Internet corporation, has confirmed via a press release and a live event in Tokyo the $20.1bn investment that would give SoftBank a 70% ownership of Sprint. The news hit the rumor mill 3 days ago and was pretty much confirmed by CNBC yesterday. The transaction is expected to close in mid-2013 pending regulatory approval.

Roughly $12.1bn will be paid to the shareholders at $7.30 a share and $8bn will be used to "strengthen Sprint's balance sheet," grow the network, and perform "strategic investments."

Sprint's shares closed at $5.73 last Friday for a +144.87% gain this year so far.

Just what the title says here, folks: Softbank and Sprint have reached a deal that will transfer 70% of Sprint's shares to the Japanese telecom giant. The price? A cool $20 billion - a premium significantly above Sprint's $17 billion market cap, 70% of which would be just $12 billion. The deal will involve Sprint selling $8 billion of stock directly to Softbank, and another $12 billion that will be acquired through Sprint shareholders, at a price of $7.30 a share.

For those who may not know, Echofon is a pretty popular Twitter client for iOS, Windows, Mac, and - strangely enough - Firefox. It combines a clean interface with basic Twitter functionality in a lightweight package; as such, many Android users have been waiting for it to makes its way over to our side of the fence.

Echofon for Android alpha recently became available, and after playing with it for a few minutes, I have to say that it looks and feels much more polished than I expected.
