Seemingly Final Nexus 4 Render Leaks, Actually Looks Real This Time

OK, OK... we've seen it before. And before that. And before that. But, it's the new Nexus phone, and we want to see as much of it as we can before the official announcement on Monday. Thanks to @evleaks, we have what seems to be a final render of the device, and this time it doesn't appear to be running a custom ROM.

And there you have it - the Nexus 4 in all of its glory.

ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T) Gets Official CM10 Nightlies

If you own ASUS' first full HD tablet - the Transformer Pad Infinity - the custom ROM scene just got quite a bit better for you. Why, you ask? Because the TF700T is now officially support by CyanogenMod, and the first CM10 nightly is already available.

Of course, in order to flash this you'll need to unlock the bootloader, which, in turn, voids the warranty. It's also worth noting that once you abandon ASUS' stock firmware, there's currently no way to go back, despite the fact that ASUS makes the update blobs available (I learned this the hard way with the TF201).

Samsung Releases Open Source Kernel Files For Note II On T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, Plus AT&T's Galaxy Rugby Pro

Now that we've seen Samsung's Galaxy Note II go up for grabs at T-Mo, Sprint, and US Cellular, it's time we began expecting to see Samsung drop kernel source code for the carriers' respective variants. That's just what Sammy has done, recently releasing the open source kernel files for SGH-T889, SCH-R950_USC, SPH-L900_SPR, and a bonus device – AT&T's Galaxy Rugby Pro, lovingly called SGH-I547_ATT.

Jelly Bean OTA Rolling Out To HTC One X In Asia Starting With Taiwan

It looks like a couple of HTC's Asian One X variants are receiving updates to Jelly Bean which appear to have begun rolling out earlier today. XDA users confirm that the update carries Jelly Bean 4.1.1 (not the latest 4.1.2) along with HTC's latest and greatest version of its Sense UI, and weighs in at about 353MB.

You may remember that HTC North Asia's general manager Jack Tong promised that One X owners in Asia could expect the update to begin rolling out to the One X today, with the One S slated to receive some Jelly Bean goodness at an unspecified later date.

Droid RAZR HD And MAXX HD Receiving A Minor OTA Update, Contains 'Google Security Patch'

If you were quick to grab the Droid RAZR HD or MAXX HD from Verizon Wireless within the past week, you should be getting your first OTA fairly soon. Verizon just updated its supports docs for the newest members of the Droid family, showing a very minor update.

Yep - that's it. The 6MB update only brings one little-bitty fix, and we're not really sure exactly what to does. Whatever it is, it's a big enough deal that Google and Verizon felt the need to push it out now instead of waiting to bundle it with a larger OTA, so you may want to go ahead and grab it.

Editorial: The Android 4.2 Tablet UI Looks Just Like A Giant Phone's, And That's Fantastic

After BriefMobile leaked what appear to be the first shots of a near-production-build of Android 4.2 running on a Samsung Nexus 10 tablet this morning, the response from many people has been absolutely vicious: the new UI looks like a giant phone, it doesn't look it's meant for a tablet, the pull-down notification bar doesn't make sense, the centered navigation buttons are going to be harder to reach, etc.

I think, though, that this is reactionary.

LG Optimus Elite Receiving Minor OTA Update

If you have an Optimus Elite, it's time to hit that "check update" button - a brand-new software version (LS696ZVF) is headed out to devices this morning. It's definitely on the minor side, and no, it's not Ice Cream Sandwich. Honestly, if you have an Elite, you're probably going to be stuck in Gingerbread hell forever unless you're on a custom ROM. Anyway, here's the changelog:

- NFC driver permissions update
- Support for downloadable Sprint Direct Connect Now client from the Google Play Store
- “QuickMemo” LG application
- Sprint Connections Optimizer

Head over to the Sprint Community post to find out more.

Vic Gundotra Shows Off What The Nexus 10's Camera Is Capable Of On Google+

At this point, there's no doubt that the Nexus 10 is a real thing - we've already seen the quick start guide (among other, more ambiguous data), after all. But now, Vic Gundotra has posted some images to his Google+ page showing off what the Nexus 10's camera is capable of. I must say, it's actually pretty impressive, especially for a tablet.
