Google I/O will be coming up in a few months and it looks like the announcement rumors have already begun. These latest touch on a new Nexus 7 tablet. Currently dubbed a second-generation model and assuming these rumors prove accurate -- Google is said to be working on the new Nexus 7 tablet with Asus.
Kickstarter almost out of time, the company has revealed the final design for the controller along with a new docking station. That said, those still on the fence about backing the GameStick, you have a little less than 70 hours. Of course, there is clearly no need to worry about the project being funded at this point. We have already seen the project climb to more than $500k when they were originally looking for $100k.
ZTE. This latest comes just one day after we saw the V81 tablet and has arrived as a budget-friendly smartphone. The handset is the ZTE Blade C and for now it looks like it is only available for those in China. Though, ZTE is also expected to release the Blade C in Europe.
AT&T launched the Galaxy Express a little while back and as of today, it looks like Samsung is ready to expand the availability. We haven't seen anything in terms of specific carriers, however given this latest announcement, Samsung will now be releasing the Galaxy Express internationally. Or more specifically, across Europe and Asia.
Nexus 4, we have some good news. You all know finding this device in stock has been nearly impossible for months, but now it looks like another purchase option is available. The big wigs at Best Buy have the LG Nexus 4 available now for the low low price of $199, from T-Mobile of course.
OUYA will be launching shortly, and one of the biggest challenges the Android console faces in 2013 is support. The idea is great, but if developers don't support it, the console may not take off. OUYA, along with Kill Screen, hosted a game jam event called CREATE a few weeks back, inviting developers to make all sorts of game prototypes over the course of 10 days. At the end of it all, the OUYA team had 166 prototypes on their hands.
CyanogenMod fans that happen to be sporting a CDMA Galaxy Note II. It looks like CM10.1 nightlies have finally arrived. As always, we offer the warning -- the nightly builds, while generally stable, are nightlies for a reason. Simply put, these are early builds and probably best when not used on your primary device.
