    French Court Finds Google Guilty Of Abusing Market Dominance With Google Maps, Orders To Pay Up €515,000

    Let this be a lesson to all major tech companies: if you have a ton of users and you want to enter a new market, you'd better charge some kind of arbitrary fee, lest you end up in trouble with the French judicial system. Google is feeling that sting this week, as a French court ordered the company to pay €500,000 in damages to Maps competitor Bottin Cartographs as well as a €15,000 fine.

    Newegg Gets Confused, Thinks The Verizon Galaxy Nexus Has A 2GHz Processor

    Looks like someone may have dropped the ball over at Newegg, judging by one of the banner slides on the main page:

    Homepage_696x288

    Do you see what we see? The Galaxy Nexus, now with 800MHz moar processor! It's clearly a typo, but it's pretty lulz all the same. Fortunately, the actual cell phone landing page has the correct specs, so hopefully no one out there will be picking up the good old GN thinking they're going to be clocking the fastest speeds known to man in a mobile device.

    [Leak] Internal Verizon Doc Shows Droid 4 Set To Drop February 10th

    The Droid 4 is the latest iteration in the venerable Droid series. Sporting Motorola's new trademark slightly octagon-ish shape, a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor, LTE, and an 8MP rear-shooter, this device brings the Droid series into the world of the future yet again. That future starts February 10th, if this leaked internal Verizon document is to be believed.

    [Updated] Rumor Analysis: Is A New Galaxy Nexus With A TI OMAP4470 CPU Really In The Works?

    A rumor has begun circulating over the past week about the possible existence of an upgraded version of the just-released Galaxy Nexus. At CES, ASUS announced the TF700T, a beefier version of the Transformer Prime (well before the first Transformer Prime has even been released in many countries), leaving a lot of people who bought the first iteration a bit upset. Are Google and Samsung following ASUS's lead and planning on releasing an incremental upgrade to the Galaxy Nexus so soon?

    White HTC Sensation To Launch March 1 In Europe With Ice Cream Sandwich In Tow

    The Sensation is one of HTC's most popular handsets overseas, and despite being launched nearly a year ago (May 19,2011), the company just announced a new "Ice White" version. While there are no differences in hardware, the outside will obviously be white (à la Amaze 4G). More importantly, though: it will launch on March 1, and run Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) out of the gate.

    HTC-Sensation-White-2 HTC-Sensation-White-4

    That's a pretty big deal for two reasons: first, because as we discussed yesterday, Sense 4.0 (which HTC will slap over top of ICS) pretty much sucks.

    [Public Disclosure] Vulnerability In HTC Android Devices Exposed Wi-Fi Credentials To Apps Which Knew How To Ask (But, Thankfully, Didn't)

    A serious vulnerability that affected the way some popular HTC Android phones handle 802.1x usernames, passwords, and SSIDs was disclosed publicly today by engineers Chris Hessing and Bret Jordan. The bug allowed applications with only an ACCESS_WIFI_STATE permission to read your Wi-Fi SSIDs, usernames, and, most importantly, passwords on at least the following devices:

    • Desire HD  (both "ace" and "spade" board revisions) - Versions FRG83D, GRI40
    • Glacier - Version FRG83
    • Droid Incredible - Version FRF91
    • Thunderbolt 4G - Version FRG83D
    • Sensation Z710e - Version GRI40
    • Sensation 4G - Version GRI40
    • Desire S - Version GRI40
    • EVO 3D - Version GRI40
    • EVO 4G - Version GRI40

    Of course, if a malicious application also happens to have access to the Internet, SMS, or other means of sending out information, credentials could leak out from a vulnerable device to a remote location.

    [Editorial] Sense 4 On Ice Cream Sandwich: One Step Forward, Two Steps Back For Android

    Yesterday, we saw the first glimpse of Sense 4 on Android 4.0 on the HTC Ville. While watching the video, I assumed that the handset was running Gingerbread since it looked just like previous versions of Sense (save for the updated launcher). The only thing that even slightly resembled ICS is the Roboto font in the clock.

    Then it showed the version information, which made me feel physically ill. This is Sense 4 on ICS?
