[Updated] CyanogenMod Nightlies Arrive For The LTE 2013 Nexus 7 Along With The International, Verizon, And AT&T LG G2

Update: CyanogenMod is also ready to make its debut appearance on the AT&T version of the LG G2 (d800), and Verizon nightlies have returned.

For many of us, it's not enough just to get our hands on a new handset. We love Android, but we're just not big fans of the changes that manufacturers make to distinguish their phones from one another. Some manufacturer customizations, like Sense 5, are arguably more attractive than Google's own efforts.

New Nexus 7 2013 Commercials Cater To Dog Lovers And Night Owls

The first ad for the 2013 model of the Nexus 7 was pretty perfect: combining a nervous nerdy kid and a common fear somehow made for an incredibly effective way to show off Google's combination of hardware and services. These two new ads aren't quite so good as "Fear Less," but they combine the same nearly universal sentiments with tablet-focused features.

The first uses a student to show off Google Now's auto-populating cards, Google Play Music, Google's contextual search, and the new textbook rental features.

ASUS Tipped As Next Nexus 10 Manufacturer Again, This Time By PCWorld Inventory System

Last month, Geek.com's Russell Holly reported that ASUS would be crafting the next-generation Nexus 10 rather than Samsung, the manufacturer who brought us the first iteration of Google's ten-inch tablet.

The report was followed quickly by the rolling back of WSJ's Amir Efrati's previous statements, and relied on "multiple sources," among them a screenshot from Best Buy's internal inventory system.

Today the claim was given a bit more credence, with a PCWorld inventory screen snapped by PCWorld employee @Rage06 surfacing on Twitter.

Verizon Expects New Nexus 7 To Get Certified For Its LTE Network At Some Point, No Timeframe Just Yet

Earlier today we reported that Verizon is currently denying owners of the Nexus 7 2013 LTE model the ability to access new data lines on the company's network. We reached out to a Verizon representative for comment, and here's what we got back:

This is not yet a device that is Verizon 4G LTE certified. We’ll let folks know when its certified.

Since that's a little on the vague side we requested some clarification, and received the following additional response.

Verizon Won't Activate New LTE SIM Cards For The Nexus 7 LTE: 'Not All LTE Tablets Are Created Equal'

Update: Verizon has responded to our inquiry about the Nexus 7 LTE registration issues. A company representative said that the Nexus 7 LTE would be certified for the Verizon network at some point.

That isn't much to go on, but it's certainly promising - it implies that Verizon is at least aware of the problem and taking steps towards upgrading the company's infrastructure to compensate. Of course, it could take any amount of time for Verizon to certify a new, unlocked device for their network (and Verizon isn't exactly known for speedy response when it comes to devices and software).

Asus Reveals Updated PadFone Infinity – Snapdragon 800, 5/10.1-Inch 1080p Screen, MicroSD Slot, And Android 4.2

It has only been a few months since Asus announced the original PadFone Infinity, but the new version of the phone-tablet hybrid was just outed in Taiwan. This is a spec bump on the last PadFone, which moves from Snapdragon 600 to 800, but that's not all.

Just like the last PadFone, this one has a 5-inch 1080p screen, which is upped to a 10-inch display at the same resolution when the phone is in the tablet dock.
