HTC and AT&T announced two new smartphones to grace their 4G LTE lineup. Those being the new and improved HTC One X+, as well as the budget friendly HTC One VX.

Kindle Fire HD 8.9 has a lot to live up to after the success of the original Kindle Fire.

Chris Burns over at SlashGear has delivered his full review of the device, and while you'll have to head over there to get all the details, we'll sum up some of the major talking points here.
Nexus 7 love to play some Android games. Back in September we announced that NVIDIA and their popular TegraZone game store had surpassed 5 million downloads, but today they've topped that number rather quickly. If you're a gamer and use Android, you probably have a Tegra-powered smartphone or tablet somewhere. Today NVIDIA has announced that in just two months they've reached another milestone.
Jelly Bean updates, but of course, there are a ton of devices out there that aren't even on Ice Cream Sandwich yet. There are many Android users who are patiently awaiting the arrival of an Ice Cream Sandwich update that may never arrive.

SwiftKey this afternoon. All you texting fans will be happy to know that SwiftKey's next generation Flow keyboard will soon reach the public beta stage where we'll all be able to enjoy the latest and greatest. SwiftKey 3 remains the top 3rd party keyboard for Android, and Flow will introduce gesture-based typing like Swype and the new Android 4.2 Keyboard.
OUYA. Ever since the Kickstarter campaign for the Android gaming console came to an end, things have been pretty silent on the OUYA front.
