A few days ago, all variants of the Galaxy Nexus got the first taste of ClockworkMod 6. Now it's available for the Nexus S/4G and the Nexus 7, in both standard and touch varieties.

This new version of CWM brings a host of new features, like faster backups, incremental backups (yay!), a fix for restores over 2GB, and some UI tweaks.

As always, you can either grab the downloads directly from the ClockworkMod site or flash them directly from ROM Manager.

Just after giving the 8GB Nexus 7 "In Stock" status, Google has published an official update on the 7's pre-order shipping situation.  The statement, which should placate users who have felt in the dark about the status of their Nexus 7 orders, explains that all standalone 8GB Nexus 7 orders (without cases or other accessories) have been shipped, and that by the end of the day July 19th, all standalone 16GB orders placed through July 11th will be shipped as well (including upgraded overnight shipping).

Ever since the Nexus 7 was first announced, it has been in "ships soon" status on the Play Store. No matter how many times you F5'd it, nothing changed (don't lie - you know you did it). Then, a few days ago Google confirmed that pre-ordered N7s had started shipping. Heck, you could even walk in to some retailers and buy one. But if you're one of those Play Store purists (do those really exist?) the time has come: the 8GB Nexus 7 is now available directly from El Goog itself.

Update: It looks like Amazon got its shipment in before expected, as the gray TF700 has just switched over to "in stock." As a result, Amazon is now sending out notifications to everyone who has already ordered to let them know that their tablet is on the way:

So if you haven't already, now may be the time to order! Thanks, David!

Office Depot beat them to the punch, but if you want options when buying a shiny new ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700, you'd best check out Amazon.

ASUS tablet fans have been eagerly awaiting the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 ever since it was announced, bringing a full 1080p screen panel (not to mention some much-needed wireless improvements) to the company's flagship tablet slot. The TF700 isn't scheduled to go on sale in the US until Monday, July 16th, but Office Depot seems to have jumped the gun. They're currently showing the much anticipated tablet as "in stock", presumably ready to roll out to anyone who pays the $499.99 MSRP.

We've been eagerly awaiting information on when the Nexus 7 will be shipping to individual customers. Well, it looks like the wait is nearly over. If you were to call Google's help line right now, you'll get an automated message saying that orders have started shipping now and that all pre-orders should ship within the next 3 business days.

Here's the full message:

"We're now shipping Nexus 7 pre-orders. The first wave of orders are going out today and all pre-orders are scheduled to ship within the next 3 business days.

You thought you knew everything there was to know about the Nexus 7? Well, you thought wrong. A curious owner of the device started doing what any totally rational person does with a brand-new tablet: expose it to magnetic forces. The results yielded an as-yet hidden feature in the Nexus 7, in the form a magnetic smart cover sensor. Simply take a magnet and put it up against the front or back of your Nexus 7 along the bottom left-hand side while in portrait mode with the display on, and you can see the effect for yourself.

When a new Nexus device is released, there are a few things that can be expected: a new version of Android, a stock user experience, and a certain three ninjas unboxing the device in the most ninja-way possible. These three facts also ring true for the Nexus 7, and this time around the Ninjas are up against more than just each other - UFC welterweight Georges St Pierre takes on the role of Dr.

Our I/O Nexus 7s just received update notifications that a new software build is available for download - this is very likely the final retail build users will see when they receive their devices.

While a "changelog" of sorts pops up with the update notification, it's stock dialogue from a full-on Jelly Bean upgrade, not something specific to this particular update for the Nexus 7. More than likely, this OTA just irons out some bugs and turns off some unnecessary data logging and pre-release testing tweaks.

Jelly Bean was announced at Google I/O just recently, but a posting from Google's Android open source guru, Jean-Baptiste Queru has confirmed that Android 4.1 is hitting the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) repository right now. Time for the developers among you to update your clients to get all the official bits.

Android-Jelly-Bean

This release will be tagged as android-4.1.1_r1 in AOSP. While the source is going live now, the full proprietary binaries for Google-blessed devices won't be rolled out until later.
