It's the holiday season, and you know what that means: people are running around frantically trying to buy things. Among those things, you'll likely find a hefty supply of gadgets and gizmos, because this is the 21st Century, and everyone must have at least one techno-thingy. But there's a quandary when it comes to buying mobile devices: price. Everyone wants to get the best possible deal, and this is the time of year to get it.
But getting a good deal isn't all that matters when selecting a place to purchase mobile devices from - there's also customer service.

Yeah, we know, Google goofed the Nexus 4 launch. It's a bummer. But if you didn't manage to get your order in, you can now obsessively check availability in your respective country using the Play Store Availability Checker. The site offers two view options: the whole Nexus device list for your respective country (link), or a list for a single device in all Play Store countries (link).
Not much else to say about that. Try to avoid the frantic refreshing, though - we wouldn't want this convenient tool to get F5'd into oblivion, would we?

We all love Android, and we also love when Google releases a new iteration of our favorite mobile OS. Sometimes, though, even Google screws up a bit, and Android 4.2 is looking to be one of the most bug-ridden releases since Honeycomb. And, let's be honest: 4.2 isn't exactly the leap that 2.3 to 3.0 was, either. Chances are, if you're on Android 4.2, you've experienced at least one of the issues here. Some aren't that bad, but some can just ruin your day, and we're a little shocked Google missed them.
We'd love it if you could confirm whether these bugs happen on a device not listed as "known affected," or of any other serious issues you've been experiencing since the bump to 4.2 on your Nexus.
