HTC's offering up a different deal every Tuesday, and this week you can get up to 75% off Double Dip and Double Dip Flip cases for the HTC One M8. Other protective accessories are going for 50% off.

The best deal is reserved for the HTC One M7, for which you can get a customized Double Dip cases for just $1. You can't engrave your name Moto-style, but you do get your choice of color for each of the three components.

On the heels of their release of the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop OTA update to the HTC One M7 and M8 Google Play Editions, HTC has quickly made the kernel source for both devices available at the HTCdev website. Most users don't need to worry about this either way, but developers and fans of custom ROMs should be happy to see these available so soon.

While HTC is required to release the kernel source since it has adapted from the open source Android code, this is kind of like returning a library book a few days early; it's just nicer to do it sooner rather than later.

Lollipop is slowly, slowly making its way to all of the Nexus and Google Play Edition devices available (yes, N7 LTE owners, we hear you). If you purchased the "pure," AOSP-packing version of either the HTC One M7 from 2013 or the flagship One M8 earlier this year, you should be getting an over-the-air update to Android 5.0 soon. We're seeing tips from owners of both Google Play Edition phones.

And surprisingly, it looks like both phones are in fact getting Android 5.0.1, the ever-so-slightly newer edition of Lollipop that should fix some of the initial problems discovered after large-scale software releases.

The Nexus 9's folio keyboard case is an expensive accessory, even by Google's standards. The product, which both protects the tablets and supplies a Bluetooth keyboard, comes in at $129.99. But Amazon has recently dropped its price to $88, a difference of $42.

The case is already out of stock, but if you recently purchased one at its previous price, you can get Amazon to refund you the difference. Artem was able to get a refund despite pre-ordering one back in October, just by contacting customer support.

Well, it's not really a surprise, but T-Mobile has backed out of its commitment to start selling the LTE-equipped Nexus 9 in early December (which is now). A leaked internal communication simply says the launch has been postponed and there is no new window.

Some HTC One M7 variants appear to be getting a new OTA update. As for what's new, apparently not much. All we know is that it contains "important enhancements and bug fixes related to improving phone call experience," and that it isn't Lollipop.

The update is version 6.09.401.11, and weighs in at a fairly hefty 193.01 MB, so whatever was changed must involve some somewhat substantial code modifications. The update also keeps the M7 on Android 4.4.3/KitKat.

Initial reactions to the Nexus 9 have been less than stellar, to say the least. In David Ruddock's review, one of many sour points for the hardware was the volume and power buttons:

...the volume rocker and power buttons on the Nexus 9, for example, are simply bad. They're squishy, have almost no travel, and provide very little feedback unless you know the exact angle to hit them at.

It looks like manufacturer HTC may be addressing at least some of the problems with the initial batch of tablets, its first since the HTC Jetstream way back in 2011.

The Nexus 9 is a good tablet, if you ask me. It's not as great as we were all hoping, but you don't have many options for 4:3 Android slates. The price isn't where it needs to be, though. Amazon has the device on sale today for $50 off all WiFi models, which I think should have been the regular price.

If you want a high-end phone for a GSM network, this deal will probably beat anything you're likely to find on Black Friday. Right now one eBay seller is unloading a refurbished AT&T version of the HTC One M8 for just $379.99, almost $300 off of the retail off-contract price and a solid eighty bucks cheaper than our previous best One M8 deal. You can pick it up with free shipping in grey, silver, or gold colors.

If you've been waiting patiently for the Nexus 9 Keyboard Folio case to pop up on the Play Store (or your Amazon order has been delayed interminably), it's there - at least in the US.

For $129, you can have the case in your hands early next week, most likely, and then you'll be typing away. The Keyboard Folio case has a full smart cover-style folding system and, while it is quite bulky, will probably be the only case/keyboard combo for the Nexus 9 available.
