[Deal Alert] 2013 Nexus 7 (32GB) For $209 With Free Shipping, As Long As You're Willing To Wait A Few Weeks [Update]

Update: It appears the deal has ended. The listing isn't even appearing anymore. Hope you got in under the wire.

The 32GB Nexus 7 is still in short supply at a lot of retailers, including Abt Electronics. That's not stopping them, though. Abt is offering a good deal if you order a new 32GB Nexus 7 now with the understanding that it's backordered 2-4 weeks. If you move before before the end of the month, Abt will give you an instant $60 discount with free shipping.

It has only been a couple of weeks since I wrote about the troubles with multi-touch (well, touch in general) on the 2013 Nexus 7. At the time, Paul Wilcox of Google's Product Support forum stated that the issue was being examined, and about a week later he confirmed that the JSS15Q update addressed the problem. While many people are reporting that the OTA has completely cleared up any touchscreen glitches that had been present, some people haven't seen any improvements, and still others are complaining that the problem has grown significantly worse.

Developer types, take note. Samsung has just posted the kernel source for the Galaxy S4 Zoom LTE and the Galaxy S4 LTE-A. Getting a piece of the open source Jelly Bean code will allow developers to better support the devices, which might actually be important in the case of the oddball GS4 Zoom.

Samsung Galaxy NX Priced – Coming In October For $1,599 Body-Only Or $1,699 With 18-55mm Lens

Samsung really crossed the streams when it announced the Galaxy NX Android camera back in June – mashing up a high-end mirrorless camera with Android. It's a rather bizarre idea, but actually looks like an interesting device. Samsung neglected to announce a price, though. Well, now it has, and you're not going to like it. The Galaxy NX will cost $1,599 for the body with no lens, or $1,699 for the body and a standard 18-55mm zoom lens.

Motorola Posts Open Source Kernel Files For The Moto X On SourceForge

As Motorola's first phone developed start to finish under Google's corporate umbrella, the Moto X is getting more than a little attention from developers, modders, and ROM enthusiasts. They'll be happy to know that the kernel source code for various models of the Moto X are now available on SourceForge.
