Legal Issues With Qualcomm May Prevent Factory Images For New Nexus 7 ('Flo') From Ever Being Published, JBQ Strongly Implies

Update: Looks like we were right.

ROM developers and Android tinkering enthusiasts alike have probably noticed at this point that the new iteration of the Nexus 7, unveiled two weeks ago, does not yet have factory images or driver binaries posted on the appropriate Google Developers page. A similar issue plagued the Nexus 4 in its early days, though eventually images were posted. At the time, legal issues were speculated as a possible reason for the delay, and Android build maintainer JBQ - largely responsible for the images / binaries - said only this in response: "I can't comment."

With the new Nexus 7, JBQ has not outright said that legal problems with Qualcomm are preventing the factory images (and possibly the driver binaries) from being published, but a quick look at the relevant evidence makes it pretty duh-obvious that's what's going on.

LG G2 Will Come To AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, And Sprint In The United States

LG had hardly introduced its new G2 flagship when they mentioned that it would come to the "big four" American carriers, meaning AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint. They're bringing the fight to Samsung in this carrier-driven market. T-Mobile has confirmed the statement in the LG event: there's already a basic website dedicated to the new 5.2-inch Android handset, complete with the compulsory information signup. There's currently no date or price for the phone on any carrier.

LG G2 Is Official: 5.2" Display, 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 Processor, 2GB RAM, 13MP Rear Camera, Android 4.2.2

Like with most other devices, there has been no shortage of leaks and rumors surrounding LG's latest flagship, the G2. But now, all the questions have been answered, rumors put to rest, and leaks are no longer necessary – LG just unveiled its newest powerhouse to the world.

Just as previous rumors suggested, the G2 is filled to the brim with high-end specs that almost immediately make this the cream of the Android crop:

  • 5.2-inch 1080x1920 IPS display
  • 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16/32GB storage options
  • 13MP rear shooter, 2.1MP front camera
  • Rear-facing power button and volume control (directly below camera) – long-pressing launches QuickMemo and the camera
  • Bottom-facing speakers
  • 3,000mAh battery
  • 138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9mm
  • Android 4.2.2

The G2 has the largest display that still fits in the "one hand use" category – thanks to the thin 2.65mm side bezel, it manages to keep the width to a mere 2.7 inches.

HTC Announces Mid-Range Desire 500 For The UK: 4.3", 1.2Ghz Quad-Core, Removable Battery, And MicroSD

HTC hasn't abandoned the market for small phones, as shown by their One Mini at a (relatively) tiny 4.3 inches. But that's still on the premium side, and those who want both a small size and a small price need some love too. Enter the Desire 500, a 4.3" phone with a mixture of features from this generation of HTC hardware and the last one. It's currently slated for release in the UK sometime in August, but HTC has been mum on a price and wider release details so far.

Let The Fun Begin... Some More: NVIDIA Releases Open Source Files And Recovery Image For SHIELD

With SHIELD, NVIDIA made the decision to support the open source/root/Android modding community and embrace the hack-centric nature of the platform by making the device unlockable and easily modifiable. Now, it has made the necessary files available to really open it up for devs: the open source binary drivers and stock recovery image. Together, these files will not only allow developers to start tinkering with the device, but also flash everything back to its stock state should something go awry.

AT&T Confirms It Will Offer One-Time Replacement For A Water-Damaged Galaxy S4 Active

When a phone is advertised as "water-resistant" you have to wonder just how resistant it actually is. In the case of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active on AT&T, the answer is apparently "not very." Despite AT&T heavily advertising the device as “whatever-proof” and great for taking underwater videos, some owners have been complaining of damage to the device after an encounter with water.

The Active is supposedly IP67 certified, which means it should hold up to water at a depth of one meter for 30 minutes.

ASUS MeMO Pad 7 HD (US Version) Review: Blurring The Lines Of What We Consider 'Budget'

We're at a crucial time for Android tablets. The little green robot is finally starting to gain some traction in the tablet space, manufacturers are beginning to realize what users want from their devices on many different levels (price, hardware, etc.), and the newest versions of Android work as flawlessly on large devices as they do on small.
