Looking for a Nexus device at a brick and mortar location? Then you may be in luck. Google just unveiled the Nexus Store Locator tool, and it's pretty simple: type in your address, find a Nexus device retailer. You can choose from the Nexus 4 or Nexus 7. Right now the only Nexus 4 retailer in the US is T-Mobile, so it's really just a T-Mobile store locator for the moment if you're looking for one of those.

With the Android 4.2.2 update finally rolling out for most Nexus devices (minus Sprint / VZW GNex), Google has posted factory images of each on the Nexus Factory Image page. These images are useful for flashing your Nexus device back to stock, whether to get an OTA update, or fix that brick you just caused.

These images are for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi and 3G), Nexus 10, and Galaxy Nexus (Yakju / Takju variants).

Good news, everyone! The Nexus 4 Android 4.2.2 OTA (JDQ39) is finally here, surprisingly late in the update cycle, following the Nexus 10 and older Nexus devices, such as both variants of the Nexus 7 and both variants of the Galaxy Nexus. Chances are you probably don't have the coveted update notification just yet, but who wants to wait if you can sideload it manually? Rooted, unrooted, stock or custom recovery - it matters not.

Following yesterday's Android 4.2.2 OTAs to various Nexus devices, Google today followed up with the push of all 4.2.2 open source code changes to AOSP. There is a lot here to parse through this time around compared to the minor 4.2.1_r1.2 commit from 10 days ago.

We've already identified some obvious user-facing changes, which we'll post about separately soon to keep it clean and organized. The purpose of this post is, as before, to find the low-level changes that may not be obvious.

While the Nexus 4 may be the LG handset getting everyone's attention, the company does have other market segments to think about. The L SeriesII (so that's what happened to the other letter from the Optimus G) fills that need with a trio of handsets that will debut with the Optimus L7II in Russia next week. The phone comes with a 4.3" 800x480 IPS display, dual-core Qualcomm processor and Jelly Bean 4.1.

If you're the owner of an LG myTouch or myTouch Q, you'll be receiving a small OTA update in the neat future that adds some "security enhancements" to your device. And that means you'll probably lose root. The update version for the myTouch is V10u-FEB-11-2013, and the myTouch Q is LGC800-V10x-FEB-11-2013. Both updates around 2MB in size, so you can rest assured that the changes are indeed quite minor.

The long-awaited Nexus 4 wireless charging orb is finally up for grabs on the US Play Store, get it while you can - it's $59.99 and ships this week.

We'd previously seen the charging orb pop up on a number of online retailers, though few were actually taking orders. The device uses the Qi wireless charging standard, and weighs 130 grams... in case you were curious.

Yes, we know - the Nexus 4 is still thin on the ground basically everywhere. (Americans, both the 8GB and 16GB versions are currently shown as "ships in 2-3 weeks" on the Play Store.) Even so, the LG flagship is the logical showpiece for Google Now, and it's doing some fine service in Google's latest mobile search ad. This one shows off Now's ability to automatically bring up contextual information for your time or location.

Update 2: The Nexus 4 8GB model appears to be back in stock once again on the US Play Store, with a shipping estimate of 2-3 weeks.

Update: Apparently, some people are still seeing the 8GB version as still shipping in 2-3 weeks. However, if you actually attempt to place an order, you'll get the "An error occurred while processing your purchase. Please try again later" message. So, it's probably out of stock everywhere in the US, the change may just not have propagated across the internet quite yet.
