Owners of T-Mobile's Huawei-made myTouch can begin anxiously tapping "software update" now – the carrier is rolling out a minor update to software build C85B839SP03. Among other things, this update fixes the myTouch device's "missing megapixel" problem, allowing the camera to "realize [its] full 5.0 Mega Pixel resolution."

The update also allows users to opt out of Carrier IQ, and brings a "compose" button to the Email app, and adds call-related bug fixes.

Back in July, Google made available the stock Jelly Bean images for a couple of the Nexus S variants, as well as the GSM Galaxy Nexus, and Nexus 7. Today, the build for the global Nexus S (soja) got updated to Android 4.1.1 (JRO03L), and the Nexus S 4G (sojas) Jelly Bean 4.1.1 image (JRO03R) made its way to Google's image download site, as well.

Unfortunately, there's still no sign of Jelly Bean showing up for the Korean version of the Nexus S (or the LTE Galaxy Nexii, for that matter).

Thinking about picking up a Nexus 7? You might want to get on that before the end of this month (right here), as the $25 Play Store credit promotion Google announced with its slate at Google I/O expires on September 30th. That means you must redeem the promotion before that date by signing into your Nexus 7 with a Google Wallet-linked Google account (that has a credit or debit card on file).

If you say nothing else about Samsung, the manufacturer is at least thorough about getting Ice Cream Sandwich out to as many devices as possible, if not punctual. Today's latest addition to the 4.0 stable is the Galaxy Exhilarate, a mid-range phone on AT&T. The update will be rolling out via Kies immediately.

The upgrade will not be sent out over the air, so break out those micro USB cables.

Last Updated: September 19th, 2012

LG has confirmed that its upcoming flagship, the Optimus G, will be launching in the United States this November. Carrier partners went unannounced, but given LG's historical relationship with Verizon, we'd hedge our bets there first and foremost, though AT&T could be another likely contender for the first major handset released with a quad-core Qualcomm processor.

We do know the Optimus G is packing LTE, but that it must be courtesy of a discrete radio, as the APQ8064 Qualcomm S4 Pro chipset does not include a cellular modem.

Hot on the heels of its Kindle Fire launch in the UK, Amazon has now made its Cloud Player available to British customers.

Like the U.S. Cloud Player, any purchases made on Amazon's MP3 store can be stored online free of charge. If users want to upload their music library to Cloud Player, they can store 250 tracks for free. Users with larger libraries can pay £21.99 per year for the premium service, which can store up to 250,000 tracks.

Right after Motorola made the RAZR i official, the very first comment on our post was "Benchmarks ASAP!" because everyone wants to know how Intel's Medfield processor compares to the more common ARM-based chips that we're used to seeing. Engadget spent some time doing exactly that this morning, and the results are, well... less than impressive. Have a look:

The only area where the RAZR i outperforms its Snapdragon S4-touting cousin (the M) is in the SunSpider benchmark, which tests browser performance.

Yesterday, a great many tech sites were quick to jump on the bandwagon about rumors of a Galaxy S IV. It doesn't really matter what these rumors were - they were reported by The Korea Times, a publication that has regularly offered up Samsung leaks because of their geographical proximity to the company's supply chain. They also tend to get a little, shall we say, cheerleady about anything Samsung lately, so perhaps they jumped the gun on this one.

Acer just officially announced the smaller of two tablets we saw from the company back at Computex in June: the Iconia Tab A110. The device appears to be a head-to-head competitor with the Nexus 7, as it offers many of the same features, as well as a few missing from the N7:

  • 7 " 1024x600 display
  • NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor
  • microUSB, microSD, and microHDMI ports
  • 390g
  • Android 4.1

This image is an earlier leak of the device.

Motorola has just revealed its first smartphone powered by an Intel mobile processor, the RAZR i, at an event in London this morning. Although the exterior of the new device shares a lot of similarities with the previously released RAZR M, such as a 4.3-inch display and Kevlar coating on the back, it couldn't be more different inside, packing an Intel CPU clocked at 2GHz.

Motorola claims that the processor is "40% more efficient" than the competition, comparing the RAZR i to the iPhone 4S, so it will be interesting to see how much usage can be squeezed out of the phone's 2,000mAh battery.
