Lets face it, some updates are more exciting than others. The OTA that Sprint is now rolling out to the Galaxy S4 is not one of them. That's not a bad thing per se, as a small update is better than no update - just don't expect much here. The list of enhancements for this one is just one line long. Software version MK2 "resolves sleep mode issues." That's it. If your phone wasn't sleeping well, it should rest more easily now.

White and black. Black and white. Every new flagship phone seems to offer these choices before anything else - you never get, for example, a phone launching exclusively in neon green. Today Samsung is officially expanding its offering of Galaxy Note 3 colors to bring the line a little bit of high-class luster. You'll soon be able to purchase the Note 3 in Rose Gold White, Rose Gold Black, and Merlot Red colors.

The Nexus 10 is getting a little long in the tooth, but it's still the only 10-inch tablet you can buy that runs the latest version of Android without any manufacturer extras. In addition to the double Nexus 7 deals from earlier this morning, eBay has a fantastic discount on a brand new Nexus 10 32GB. Not only do you get a new (not refurbished) tablet for $399, a hundred bucks off of retail, you also get a $100 prepaid Visa Gift Card.

The AT&T-branded Samsung Galaxy S4 is once again getting its Android 4.3 update as an OTA. After an unexplained issue with the last Android 4.3 push, everything looks to be getting back underway according to Samsung's site and early reports on XDA. This is a big update for the GS4, but AT&T is probably going to take it slowly this time.

Now is a good time to pick up the Galaxy S4, in any color, and on any carrier. Best Buy is promoting an early Doorbuster deal that lets customers get the phone free with a two-year contract, including both new lines and upgrades. Interested buyers can take advantage of the offer at any Best Buy store or online.

While the phone is free, the activation is not. Of course, you will also still be saddled an expensive monthly bill for 24 months.

The Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition started its Android 4.4 update yesterday, a little later than many of its owners would have liked. For those who are eager to get KitKat on their expensive AOSP phones and don't want to wait for the rollout, we've got a download link for the manual OTA update ZIP file.

Those of you who are Nexus veterans know how this goes: download the file on your PC and use ADB to reboot into recovery, copy the file over, and then flash it.

If you've been hankering for a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the high price for Verizon's contract phone may be off-putting. Wirefly is offering the Verizon Note 3 for $199.99 with a new contract, but Amazon has one-upped them - they've got the same phone-contract combo for just $169.99. The price for both is $249.99 ($50 off Verizon's price) for returning customers.

You could take the view that Wirefly has a better deal here, at least if you're willing to wait.

The 4.3 update for this and other Samsung phones packs more than the usual updated software: it also makes Samsung's later phones compatible with the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, previously restricted to the Galaxy Note 3.
