T-Mobile Finds myTouch's Missing Megapixel, Updates Device To Build C85B839SP03

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. Here's the full change log from T-Mo's website:

If you own a T-Mobile myTouch, keep an eye out for the OTA prompt, or head to Settings > About Phone > Software Update and grab the update manually.

Updated Jelly Bean Factory Images Show Up For The Nexus S and Nexus S 4G

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). Sorry, guys - looks like we'll have to keep waiting for those.

PSA: $25 Google Play Credit Promotion For Nexus 7 Ends On September 30th

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). Here are the terms indicating as such, emphasis ours:

2. In order to receive this promotional balance for the tablet activation, you must currently have or create a Google Wallet account on your tablet, and you must also add a credit card or debit card to such account (or already have a credit card or debit card in such account) for use in future purchase and payment transactions with the Google Wallet, by September 30, 2012.

Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate Gets The Ice Cream Sandwich Bump, Available Via Kies Right Now

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. The boost from Gingerbread should be a significant and welcome one for Exhilarate users. It's nice to see Samsung hasn't completely forgotten its mid-range line of phones. Even if the company does have about a million of them.

LG Confirms That The Optimus G Will Launch In The US In November, Carrier Details Absent

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.

Optimus_G_21

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.

What implications this may have for battery life or CDMA compatibility are unclear, but LG has rather sneakily let slip that there will be regional variants of the G, through a video regarding its camera.

Engadget Benchmarks The RAZR i, It's Probably Not The Powerhouse You Were Expecting

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. Do these scores mean the RAZR i is a bad phone? Heck no. Benchmarks are fun for looking at raw horsepower, but the real test is once you get the device in your hands.

Samsung Claims Galaxy S IV Rumors Are Bogus, In Least Surprising Turn Of Events Ever

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.

Regardless, Samsung has discounted the Times' rumors with a tweet from the official Samsung Electronics Twitter account, albeit in Korean:

Acer Officially Announces The 7" Jelly Bean-Powered Iconia Tab A110

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. Unfortunately, Acer has not yet provided official press shots.

While the display resolution is the primary drawback of this tablet in comparison to the N7, HDMI out and expandable storage are features lacking on Google's official tablet.

Motorola Announces The RAZR i With A 2GHz Intel CPU And 4.3-Inch Display, Launching In Europe And Latin America Next Month

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.
