Not so, says Eric Schmidt. Speaking at a Big Tent event in India, the former CEO, current Chairman says that the two will remain separate products, though they may have more "commonality" between them.

[LOLWut] U.S. Retailer MobileFun Lists The Samsung Galaxy S4 Game Pad For $113

So, you want that Samsung Galaxy S4 gamepad, eh? Ready to shell out several dead presidents to make it happen? How about the tune of $113? Thought you might lose interest. Looks like US retailer MobileFun thinks that's what Samsung's gaming-on-the-go handset is worth, because it has the pre-order listed at just that.

Of course, it's pretty unlikely that will end up being the retail price. This is most likely a case of "let's go ahead and list this even though we've no clue how much it will really cost." The high price tag could be a deterrent to keep customers from ordering before they actually get the official pricing and launch date – or it could be a way of scraping the pockets of would-be customers who have too much money to spend and must have the Game Pad as soon as possible.

Hands-On With The Google Play Store 4.0 Leak - A Google Now-Inspired Design With A Horrible Looking Action Bar

The Google Play redesign is very real.

We've managed to secure a copy and we're going to extract every possible ounce of info out of it.

Sadly, we aren't allowed to distribute it - we have to honor the request of the person who scored us a copy. Sorry! We will tell you everything we can about it, though.

NVIDIA's Tegra Team Shows Off Car Dashboards Of The Future, Running And Controlled By Android [Video]

Yesterday, Android Police was in San Jose checking out some nifty things at NVIDIA's 2013 GPU Technology Conference. At one of the events, the Tegra team showed off a few prototypes of automotive dashboards they're hoping to put into cars of the future.

Verizon Finally Starts Pushing Android 4.2.2 To The Galaxy Nexus

Oh, Verizon. The company we all love to hate (aside from AT&T). You push updates ridiculously late all the time, have to Droidify every handset that comes your way, and charge ridiculously high prices. Still, we just can't stay away. It's the LTE – you know that, right? We love the LTE coverage, so we deal with all the crap.

When it comes to dealing with Verizon's crap, I can't say that any phone has gotten a worse hand than the Galaxy Nexus.

Verizon Approves An Update To... The Droid Charge? Face Unlock And A Photo Editor Come To Gingerbread

Verizon is just not letting up on the updates. Which is kind of a crazy thing to say about the carrier. Today's is an oddity, though, as the Droid Charge will be getting a mild upgrade. Yes, really. It's not a huge change, though. Unfortunately, it's not Jelly Bean (or even Ice Cream Sandwich), but it does bring a couple of the features from those platforms, including face unlock and a photo editor.

The rumor mill is hot today after a comment on XDA caused some to worry that CyanogenMod would not arrive for the new Galaxy S4. XpLoDWilD took to the forums to respond to questions about the difficulty of developing for the handset. The comment appeared to be speaking on behalf of TeamHacksung (the sub-group within CM that deals with devices like the SII, Note, SIII, Note II, etc.), other CM members were quick to point out that no one person has the authority to speak for the entire team.
