Big Red customers who just can't enough of the ol' pigskin, listen up: from now until October 1st, you can catch all the NFL action for free on your mobile with Verizon's NFL Mobile app. The service, which normally costs around $5 a month, allows you to stream live NFL content directly to your phone so you never miss a beat.

And, considering the app was just updated to add support for Jelly Bean and high-res screens, you can rest assured that it will work just fine on your newly updated Galaxy Nexus.

Do you like the idea of a low-end prepaid phone that's probably marginally overpriced for what it is? Does Cricket Wireless intrigue you? Then have I got the news of the century for you. Meet the ZTE Engage. It's not particularly exciting. It's not particularly cheap. But it's... a phone. And it runs Android 4.0. So there's that.

The ZTE Engage does other things, too. Like music. And apps.

Wouldn't you know it - not long after ASUS has to delay the Jelly Bean update for the Transformer Pad Infinity, Acer silently starts pushing the update to the Iconia Tab A700.

Considering there are zero details at this time, we have no idea what changes have been made, but hopefully Acer found a way to make this HD tablet run a little smoother this go around.

Just yesterday, ASUS promised both TF201 and TF700 owners their Jelly Bean updates on September 28th and 29th, respectively. While they owned up to that for the Prime, the Infinity isn't so lucky: they just had to push the update back.

According to ASUS rep Gary Key, "a couple of applications that were recently updated (Facebook 1.9.10 on 9/20 as one example) required a last minute firmware update for the keyboard to operate correctly in the "Comment" area with Android 4.1."

It's not all bad, though - the update should still begin rolling out early next week.

I find that I'm far more inclined to use an app if it's pretty. I can't stand blatant iOS ports for one, but I've also started to basically ignore apps that are stuck in the Gingerbread (and earlier) way of theming. Holo is where it's at, so that's what I want to see.

While the previous New York Times app wasn't exactly stuck in the "old Android" theme, it certainly wasn't ICS-ified, either.

When eBay updated its Android app to v2.0 about two weeks ago, many users were experiencing serious issues with the new version. eBay quickly pulled the update, and went back to the drawing board. Now the new version has returned. And yes, they kept the absolutely terrible asphalt background in the eBay Motors section.

Here's the changelog, which contains all of the improvements of the original 2.0 update:

  • Find cars, trucks, motorcycles as well as compatible parts and accessories with the mobile-optimized eBay Motors experience (US only, more countries coming soon)
  • Improved My eBay list access
  • Simplified navigation throughout the app
  • View bidding history on an item
  • Add up to 12 photos when listing an item with the app
  • Users in Italy and Spain can now list items with the app
  • Payment support for Malaysia and Singapore

The app seems to be working fine now, as well, so go ahead and update away.

Yesterday, Google started a promo for hitting 25 billion downloads in the Play Store. For five days, they're offering 25 apps for $0.25. Today is day 2 of the promo, and the sales just went live. Here's a look at what you can grab on the cheap today:

We already know the Galaxy Note II is headed to all of America's "big four" carriers with Exynos and LTE (well, LTE on 3 out of 4) in tow. What we don't know is when. Samsung promised "before the holidays," but that's a pretty large window. It seems likely that window is about to close - next month.

Samsung has announced an event to be held on October 24th in NYC, and the invitation makes it quite obvious what the topic of discussion will be.

Hi. Welcome to the future. Mountain View, California, 2012. I'm telling you it's great here. You've got a location-aware, always-connected supercomputer in your pocket. What good is it, though, if you're only ever using it to check what's going on in Facebook land? Enter Field Trip, the latest app to be released by Google (via the obscure Niantic Labs), which offers you information about all the things around you, including trivia, facts about local monuments, restaurant reviews, and more.

It's that time again - rumor time. This one's from our favorite "industry sources" rumor-monger, the venerable Digitimes. They're saying that, according to industry sources, Google is making two new models of the Nexus 7 that are expected to be thinner. Sounds credible.

They're also saying these two new tablets will be priced at $199 and $99, respectively, and will hit the market by the end of 2012.

Listen, we know Digitimes is incredibly hit and miss about this kind of stuff.
