The Nexus 4 may not be officially available until November 13th, but that didn't stop someone from yanking the system dump and uploading it for all the world to enjoy. Devs can grab the file now and start tinkering away with the goodies found inside the 291MB zip.

For those who may not be interested in grabbing the entire thing and only want some visual goodies, though, we've pulled the new wallpapers from the dump:

It's hard to believe that any high(er) end  phone released within the last six months shipped with Gingerbread, but sadly, that's the case. Sprint's first LTE smartphone, the LG Viper, was one such device. Thankfully, the company is now pushing out an OTA update that will bump the Android version up to 4.0. It may not be the latest and greatest that Google has to offer, but it's still a huge improvement over Gingerbread.

If you thought Google's official Ask Me Anything video was a good promo for the new Nexus family, wait till you see this. A design studio called Autofuss (based in San Francisco) has created their own promo video for the Nexus 4, 7, and 10, that does a great job of showing off the new line. Take a look:

Not only is the thirty-second spot a pixel-perfect promo in terms of style, polish, and overall concept, but it stays true to Google's own Nexus branding, art style, and features copy that feels right at home in a promo made for Google.

The Desire C features some of the things you'd expect from its higher end counterparts, like 25GB of Dropbox space, Beats Audio, and Sense 4, to go along with its 3.5" touchscreen and Android 4.0.

In the spirit of Halloween, let's give some stuff away! It's about treats after all - isn't it? And what better treat is there than free gadgets?

Since this is a Halloween giveaway, let's talk about the undead for a moment, shall we? In fact, let's get specific - let's talk about killing the undead with an assault vehicle made for mowing 'em down. Sound familiar? It should, because I'm talking about the newly released Tegra-exclusive title Zombie Driver.

The integration of all the services you use from your favorite search provider just keeps on getting better. Today, Google announced that you can now share content from your Google Drive directly to Google+. It's not just a matter of a simple link, either (unless you're on mobile). A built-in viewer for PDFs, videos, slideshow presentations and more make the experience virtually seamless.

To share to Google+, you simply click the Share button like normal where you'll find the new option waiting, in addition to the usual Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter.

If all this wide world of information is used for is to figure out who that one guy was in that movie you saw, it feels like a waste of a good future. Which is why it warms our hearts just a bit to see things like this: now, in both Google Search or Maps, if you search for information related to a a missing or abducted child, AMBER Alerts will now be included among your search results.

The time has finally come: after spending the biggest part of a decade with Verizon Wireless, I'm moving to a GSM carrier. This isn't just because of the Nexus 4, though - I've been debating on making the move for months now. However, Big Red delayed the inevitable change when they turned on LTE in my area.

Still, I'm sick of being tied down to CDMA carrier, and the recent Nexus 4 announcement is the straw that broke the camel's back.

Today, ARCHOS released details on its newest small form factor tablet, the 80 Cobalt. Clearly aimed at the lower end of the slate market, this device packs a 1.6Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of on-board storage and a rather meager 1024x768 display. Fortunately, the device also includes the controversial as of late micro SD card slot.

Adding to the steady stream of new phones, Samsung has now unveiled the GT-i9260, which will be publicly known as the Galaxy Premier. This phone was  previously (and wrongly) rumored to be the Galaxy Nexus 2, as it sports a similar size to the original GN, but has the stylistic design of the Galaxy S III. Not all details are available at this time, but we know the device has a 4.65" 720x1280 Super AMOLED display, 8 or 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, an 8MP rear shooter and 1.9MP front camera, 2100mAh battery, and Android 4.1.
