Mystery. Magic. Oversized phones and cameras running Android. If these are things that make you happy, then Samsung's Mobile Unpacked event from today will be the best hour and half you can spend staring at your computer's screen (short of reading AP, of course). And just in case you weren't able to catch the live stream during the event today, Sammy has now made the entire thing available online.

Now you can see first hand what happens when Samsung, a couple of magicians, and and MC who talks louder than everyone else get together.

Google's not pulling any punches this time around with its ads for its newest Nexus device. When it's not physically invading one of the most visited sites on the internet, the Nexus 7 can be found in some adorable videos that play to every one of your sappiest emotions. Take this newest ad, featuring a five-ish-year-old girl reading Curious George, and planning her trip to the moon. (No one tell her just yet, okay?)

The video follows its predecessor entitled Camping in the marketing style of "Look at this!

A platform can never have too many zombies, and thanks to a new co-op survival game called Call of Mini, Android now has a few more.

The popular iOS game came to the Play Store yesterday, and allows players to work with each other and take down hoards of zombies with whatever weapons they can find. Machine gun, chainsaw, rocket launcher, anything goes.

As well as a co-op mode, the game also allows you to play against other people in VS mode, from which you can gain various rewards.

So, you've heard a lot about this Google Wallet thing, but how does it actually work? How do you add a card? Is it secure?

Those may be a few of the questions floating around in your head about Google's pay-with-your-mobile service. Never fear, though, Wallet Wonderers - Google just published three new videos to help you better understand how Wallet works and how easy it is to use.

So, watch the videos and hit the widget at the bottom to install Wallet...

73v1n (a.k.a. @Xevin, a.k.a. Cameron Behzadpour), the creator of official CyanogenMod boot animations, dropped the version for CM10 a couple of minutes ago. Jelly Bean-colored, clean, and simple, yet, in my opinion, highly attractive, the animation hits the nail on the head. There no Cid, no controversy surrounding him, no outdated skater dude - just pure awesomeness. I won't spoil the fun - just watch.

There seems to be quite a lot of movement happening behind the scenes at the Play Store - yesterday we discovered that Google Play Store gift cards and wishlist are getting prepped for launch, and today Google seems to have enabled those smart app updates that we've been salivating about since Google I/O.

Normally, when an update to an application comes out, the Play Store downloads it in full, which with large apps and slow connections can get quite painful (think 50MB+ sizes).

One of the more anticipated action games this year is Darksiders II, the follow up to the 2010 sleeper hit. While THQ's mythological opus is still a little power-hungry for even the latest Android tablets, streaming specialist OnLive has decided to make it available on their remote gaming platform almost immediately after the PC release. Those who have an Onlive account can experience the game as if they had a high-end gaming rig, and it's been adapted for control with any Android device running Gingerbread or later.

We saw a brief hint recently for Gameloft's upcoming game based on the Unreal Engine. A single still image showed a man holding a giant sword, covered in blood, as he stood alone in a field of his enemies' remains. Yeah. Awesome. Well, now Gameloft has unveiled a trailer for the game that teaser teased. Watch it. Now.

Yeah, this looks kinda big. And by that, I of course mean "really big." Gameloft is touting this as its "first Unreal game." I suppose that means Gameloft's other first Unreal Engine game is going to be pushed back to being released second.

After a long series of post-MWC changes, Samsung has finally readied its long-awaited flagship Galaxy Note 10.1 Android tablet and officially announced its global availability. The release schedule is set to start immediately with the United States, United Kingdom, Korea, and Germany, followed by other markets "starting in August." The initial release includes only the Wi-Fi only and the 3G/HSPA+-enabled variants, with the LTE flavor coming later this year.

Note: The press release is a little ambiguous on whether the "starting in August" bit refers to the four aforementioned countries or the following global availability, but we're inclined to side with the latter.

If you're serious about security on your Android phone or tablet, you probably know that the Face Unlock feature introduced in Ice Cream Sandwich is a long way from secure. While Google didn't make any claims to the contrary, it looks like the extra "Liveness check" (which requires the user to blink after the initial scan) is almost as susceptible. A group of YouTube users demonstrated how to get past the check with a photo taken off of Facebook and just a few minutes of Photoshopping.
