preparing a long, long overdue Android 4.0.4 update for the Galaxy Nexus, which has been officially stuck on 4.0.2 since it's release. Obviously the OTA update didn't happen yesterday, but Google seems to be just as tired of the run-around as we are, because they've posted the relevant update file on their own servers.

"T-Mobile" Prism, Huawei's latest de-branded device for the American carrier. The Prism is low-end in every sense of the word, but that doesn't necessarily mean bad - and the low-end is moving forward nearly as fast as flagship devices are.

Verizon would be phasing out its customers who were "grandfathered" into unlimited data plans by forcing them to adopt the new shared data plans this summer. I've been an unlimited customer for years, and when I lived out in the country the tethering plan saved me around a thousand dollars a year in overage fees I'd otherwise have been paying.

Ice Cream Sandwich the past few weeks. If you are rocking the LG Nitro HD for AT&T you'll be happy to know that for the few owners of said device, Android 4.0 ICS has leaked in an official build and is available now. We are hearing good things although this is still an early build, but it's worth checking out.
Gameloft has launched MIB III for Android and it's available right this minute for free in the Play Store. If you are a fan of Android gaming or love the Men in Black series (who doesn't) you'll want to check this out.
