Update: Here's The Commercial (in full quality).

You probably saw the teaser ad for HTC's new campaign featuring none other than Robert Downey, Jr., star of the 2003 film adaptation of British TV series The Singing Detective. (Among other things.)

Samsung Hennessy Flip Phone Announced: Ten Keys, Four Cores, Two Screens, One Hinge, And Zero Chance Of A US Release

Flip phones are still pretty huge in the Asian market. And I don't mean the standard freebies you can get on contract elsewhere, I'm talking big-screen, full-OS, powerful flip phones that still use the old T9 dialpad layout. Samsung is hoping to get a piece of that pie with the Android-powered Hennessy (SCH-W789), a flip phone with dual 3.3" screens and Android 4.1. It's currently set for a Chinese release, though an exact price or date isn't available.

Maybe you've been itching to drop $349 on the LTE-equipped Nexus 7, but Google just won't take your filthy money. A Nexus buyer in China seems to have gotten one without even trying. A user of the online community Baidu Tieba who goes by "crazyfreely" recently posted that he spent 2,030 yuan (about $331) expecting to get the new WiFi-only Nexus 7. What he actually received appears to be the LTE version of the device.

Samsung 4.2.2 Tablet Updates: Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 WiFi (GT-P3110) In The UK, Galaxy Note 8.0 3G (GT-N5100) In Germany

It's been nine months to the day since Android 4.2 was announced, and just under four months since Samsung's first non-Nexus 4.2 devices started hitting the shelves. But apparently it takes at least that long to make sure that every non-touch gesture and gyroscopic scrolling function works with a new version of Android. Case in point: both the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 WiFi (GT-P3110) in the UK and the Galaxy Note 8.0 3G (GT-N5100) in Germany are just now getting updated, according to SamMobile.

Verizon's HTC One Signup Page Is Live – Still No Release Date

The Verizon Moto X page just went live yesterday, and now the HTC One has broken cover as well. As usual, you can insert your email if you would like the "latest information" on the HTC One from Verizon. That's probably a lie, but still your call.

2013-08-13 14_16_35-HTC One _ Learn more about the HTC One on Verizon Wireless - Verizon Wireless

This appears to be the same HTC One from other carriers, but Verizon did manage to get its name and the LTE logo stamped on the back (the Moto X only has the Verizon part of the logo).

Sprint Announces The Purple Mirage Galaxy S4, On Sale Today In Stores, Online On August 16th

School's about to start, and nothing goes with that new backpack quite like a Galaxy S4 rocking a dazzling shade of purple. No longer will Sprint customers have to sacrifice power and functionality for the sake of fashion. Especially considering that the Moto X's customization will initially only be available to AT&T customers, the Purple Mirage Galaxy S4 is about as vibrant an option as a Sprint customer looking for a high-end phone is going to have anytime soon.

[Bug Watch] Some 2013 Nexus 7 Units Suffer From Erratic And Jumpy Multi-Touch, Android Team Investigating

Since the launch of the refreshed Nexus 7, there has been quite the rollercoaster of good and bad news. Some stores jumped the gun on the release date, which inspired Google to get an early start, as well. That was followed by the revelation that the device would never be able to support Google Wallet. Then came the really shocking news that factory images may never be published, which was almost immediately resolved after JBQ announced he was leaving his station with AOSP.
