CyanogenMod Teases Something Very Mysterious - "A New Challenger Appears, A New Nemesis Appears"

A mysterious video that starts with "Nothing can be perfect, things can be better" was just posted by the CyanogenMod team on YouTube. The 31-second animation teases... something.

What could it be? A CyanogenMod phone? Upcoming Android 4.3 support (I really doubt this is what the video is about)? Something else completely mind-blowing or ultimately disappointingly overhyped? One of the frames shows the word "FREE" on a lockscreen - that can't be a coincidence.

Low-End LG Enact Tipped For Verizon, Sports Physical Buttons (Including Menu) And Meh Specs

Sometimes we're completely blown away by what carriers have coming down the pike. This is not one of those times.

Looks like Verizon is once again teaming up with LG for a low-end device, which @evleaks claims will be called the Enact, and has a model number of VS890. There is literally nothing remarkable about this phone, save for the fact that LG decided to give the Gingerbread days a nod and resurrect the physical menu button:

[Deal Alert] Verizon Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE Shows Up On Wirefly For $50 On Contract (50% Off)

If you want a "ruggedized" phone on Verizon, you can have any model you want, so long as you want the Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE. It doesn't have a lot to recommend it aside from its tough-as-nails construction, but if Verizon's your only choice, it's better than nothing. And on that note, a $50 on-contract price tag is better than twice that at retail. Wirefly has the G'zOne Commando for $49.99, fifty bucks off the standard price.

Someone At Samsung Really Likes Brown: Galaxy S4 In "Autumn Brown" Leaked For Verizon

Love 'em or hate 'em, you've got to admit that Samsung has made a habit out of offering its flagship devices in as many hues as they possibly can. Leakster extraordinaire EVleaks posted a press shot of a new Galaxy S4 last night, sporting an Autumn Brown color and Verizon branding. There's no indication of when it will show up on store shelves.

The leak says the phone is brown, but that's only half true: the back of the phone looks like the same diamond-pattern black as the older Galaxy S4, while the "brushed" pattern on the front bezel and home button gets a chocolate-colored makeover.

An Even Newer Android 4.3 Build (JWR66V) Leaked For The Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition

Some devices get all the ROMs. Of course, for the Google Play Edition of the Galaxy S4, that's kind of the point. Late last month an early version of Android 4.3 was leaked for the phone right around the time of its Play Store debut, and now an even newer build labeled "JWR66V" has popped up. According to XDA Developers forum poster Jahon, it was build on July the 11th, and now it's been re-packaged into a ROM file flashable in the custom recovery of your choice.

[New Game] Bounty Arms Looks Like A Console-Quality Side-Scroller, Now In The Play Store For $4.99

Kerosene Games hasn't yet published many games for Android, but their titles definitely grab our attention. Their last title, Bladeslinger, was an action-RPG with highly-attractive visuals that were only somewhat held back by repetitive gameplay and in-app purchases. Their next title, Bounty Arms, is available now, and it looks perhaps even more impressive. This 3D side-scroller puts you in control of three characters across 10 beautiful levels that may just have you do a double-take.

[New Game] The Walking Dead: Assault Shambles Into The Play Store Offering Squad-Based Episodic Strategy

I've gone on record that zombie games are the bane of the mobile landscape, the interactive equivalent of the buddy cop movie: creatively bankrupt, innovative as a brick, and now only rarely entertaining. I'm inclined to stay my hatred for all things green and groaning on this one occasion, if only because the source material is still relatively pure. The Walking Dead: Assault is a squad-based strategy game, born from the same comic book series as AMC's monster hit TV show (but not the show itself).

ASUS PadFone Updated To Version 10.2.4.1, Includes Software Enhancements And Improved Stability

The PadFone is a versatile piece of tech, a smartphone that plugs into a tablet that plugs into a dock. It's an interesting concept, and if you don't use it that often, the three pieces together could probably get you through more than a couple of days on a single charge. Now ASUS is providing a firmware update to the original PadFone, bringing about stability improvements along with stronger WiFi and Bluetooth connections.
