Prepare to temper your expectations, HTC One owners on Sprint. In the coming days you will see the update notification pop up, but it's not Android 4.2. It's not even a very substantial update. But hey, it's still an update, and that's more than a lot of phones get.

[Deal Alert] Refurbished ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 32GB Is $280 After Rebate ($150 Off) From Tiger Direct

Looking for a high-res tablet, and don't mind getting a model that's a bit long in the tooth? Then you'll want to check out Tiger Direct's listing for the 32GB Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700. This 1920x1200 10" tablet is a pretty great deal at $279.99, assuming you're OK with a somewhat outdated Tegra 3 processor, a refurbished model, and a $50 mail-in rebate. Jeez, but I wish those things would die - the rebates, not the Tegra 3.

The New Web Play Store Is Insanely Fast - Here Is Why [Analysis]

Google just updated the web Play Store with a completely new UI that was teased back at I/O 2013, and it immediately caused a whirlwind of mixed reactions. We have a separate post coming up on all the differences as well as the features that didn't make it into the redesign (there are, unfortunately, a lot - even more than went missing in Maps v7), but right now I want to commend Google and address one aspect that immediately stood out to me within the first few seconds - speed.

Sony Xperia Z Launching Later This Month On Bell Mobility As A Canadian Exclusive

This is going to be the proper Xperia Z, not that watered down, non-water-resistant Xperia ZL. In case you need a refresher on the Z's specs, here they are:

  • 5" 1080 x 1920p full HD Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2
  • 13MP Fast Capture camera with Exmor RS sensor
  • Water and dust resistant (IP55 & IP57) with a durable glass display
  • 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor
  • 2GB RAM

The Xperia Z is no slouch, but it's starting to look a bit dated next to the HTC One and Galaxy S4.

HTC Publishes, Pulls Post Teasing The HTC One Mini, Will "Bring The One Experience To As Many People As Possible"

Update: The post has now been published.

Just a few minutes ago, it seems someone over at the official HTC blog pulled the trigger on an HTC One Mini teaser campaign a bit early. A post titled "Little Things That Pack a BIG Punch" was live for a few moments, only to quickly disappear. It was a pretty obvious hint at the upcoming HTC One Mini, which is perhaps best-known at this point as HTC's worst-kept secret.

If you're one of the lucky few with a T-Mobile-branded Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, there's an update headed your way. It's based on Android 4.1.2, just like the last one was, but it adds one notable new feature: LTE. Yes, the tablet's latent LTE radio has been enabled with this update.

The new version of the software is starting to hit devices today, but mashing the update button won't help. It's going to be arriving in waves until all tablets have gotten the notification around July 19th.
