After ASUS' US-bound Transformer Pad 300 (TF300) got its taste of Jelly Bean OTA goodness – and subsequent full-fledged firmware download – owners of the tablet's international (or WW) variant were stuck furiously pressing "software update" in hopes of getting their own OTA. Well, it looks like ASUS has made dreams come true, at least across Europe. Just earlier today, ASUS UK officially put users on the lookout via Twitter:

Keeping true to its reputation for timely updates, ASUS pushed out an official Jelly Bean OTA update to lucky Transformer Pad TF300 owners in North America last Saturday after a quick tease. Now, under a week later, it looks like ASUS has provided the full firmware for download directly from its support site.

The download, which those who didn't receive the OTA (due to an unlocked bootloader or otherwise) can use to get to ASUS' clean Jelly Bean experience, weighs a hefty 438MB and is meant only for users of the US version of the TF300.

After catching sight of Jelly Bean for Samsung's Galaxy SIII on video, then seeing a leaked build for the i9300 pop up on XDA, it looks like T-Mobile's variant of Sammy's latest powerhouse has its own leaked Jelly Bean goodness.

Earlier today, XDA user LuffarJoh posted up what seems to be an early (though enticing) OTA file for T-Mobile's Galaxy SIII (aka T999) that will bring your device up to 4.1.1.

LG has launched a teaser for its next flagship smartphone. While we don't have a name for this device just yet, the specs are very impressive. The phone will be powered by a quad-core S4 Pro processor (APQ8064) with an Adreno 320 GPU. As you may recall, the dual-core S4 is the chip that manages to give the Tegra 3 a run for its money in some benchmarks due to its 28nm architecture (versus the Tegra 3's 40nm).

After the successful landing of NASA's Curiosity rover on Mars this month, space exploration is once again at the forefront of everyone's minds. While the rover goes about its mission on the red planet, there are plenty of other exciting projects happening closer to home.

One of those projects is the CubeSat Launch initiative (CSLI), in which nanosatellites built by teams across the United States are hitching a ride into orbit on rockets planned for upcoming launches.

While the tech world waits with bated breath for the conclusion of Apple's United States case against the world's most prolific smartphone maker, another case is just wrapping up in Samsung's home country of South Korea. The Wall Street Journal reports that a Seoul court found both Apple and Samsung in violation of each other's patents, with the former violating two of Samsung's patents and the latter violating one of Apple's.

Last week, after Google Maps received a public transit-minded update, it became apparent that the app wasn't playing nice with the HTC Rezound. Befuddled user reports spilled in, relaying tales of inexplicable reboots and crashes. As always, the community found a solution but, unfortunately, the only solution ended up being the "uninstall updates" button.

T-Mobile today acknowledged the Maps update's issues with certain handsets, posting a support document related to the HTC Sensation 4G's problems with the app.

After disappearing from T-Mobile's own website and appearing as backordered on others, a matter we posted on just a bit earlier today, we've heard from a very reliable industry source that T-Mobile is putting the Galaxy Note on "EOL" (end of life). We have every reason to believe this person (though they spoke on condition of anonymity), and today's events make it pretty obvious that's what's going on. The EOL date is estimated around November 1st, though that remains subject to change based on how quickly T-Mobile's remaining inventory is depleted.

Today, the Verge posted photos of what is supposedly known internally as the HTC Proto. Previous reports said that it would be a 4" device with a dual-core Snapdragon processor, a 5-megapixel camera, 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM and HSPA support. It's no beast by any means, but still a solid device for a low-end phone.

The device continues HTC's preference for capacitive buttons on the front. Unlike the One V, however, this phone does not appear to have the trademark "chin".

Intrigue. Mysterious disappearances. Giant phones. These can all be used to describe the recent events surrounding T-Mobile's Galaxy Note. We're not entirely sure what's going on around Team Magenta's camp, but the Note is gone. Don't believe me? Go look. I'll wait.

Didn't find it, did you? Nope. But wait - the plot thickens. Wirefly also has the device listed as "not available," and Costco, which uses Wirefly on the backend, has the device on closeout.
