Google Maps live traffic alerts now support 130 new cities

Today Google has unleashed another huge update for Google Maps. While this update isn't on the app side that will need downloading, instead it is backend features that will enable their real-time live traffic status alerts and details to an additional 130 cities across the US. That is a huge update if you ask us, and they've even included Costa Rica, and Panama City too.

Gameloft announces Asphalt 7: Heat, and Spider-Man for Android [Video]

The good news for gamers just keeps flooding in today. After NVIDIA detailed some upcoming Tegra HD games earlier today we now have some exciting news from Gameloft.

Check out the Asphalt 7 preview trailer below.

Galaxy S III won’t launch with wireless charging kit

Those of you who were hoping to put away your wall-wart chargers for good upon the release of Samsung's Galaxy S III will need to wait a little longer. SlashGear reports that the wireless charging kit highlighted in Samsung's presentation last week won't be available until at least September. A United Kingdom online retailer confirmed that the charging kit wouldn't be available for the smartphone's in-country launch at the end of this month.

Vodafone begins registration for Galaxy S III updates

While the rest of us bear with Samsung's incessant teasing before its May 3rd announcement of "the next Galaxy", UK carrier Vodafone has jumped the gun a bit. They're already setting up for the release of what is almost certainly the Galaxy S III with a generic update registration page. The small banner uses the same font and galactic style as Samsung's own preview website, but doesn't mention a date. That's probably because it'll be a while after the press event itself that we actually see the phone released to retail.

Sony Xperia P and Xperia U delayed to late May

The junior members of Sony's new smartphone triforce will have to wait a little longer to distinguish themselves from the top of the line Xperia S. According to UK online retailer Clove, both the Xperia P and the Xperia U have been pushed back to a May 28th release. Technically we can only deduce that the delay is true for the United Kingdom, but given Sony's general release habits this probably means it's true for greater Europe as well.

Unlocked Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich update ready in the UK

Have you been watching while your pesky contracted United Kingdom fellows have waived their official Ice Cream Sandwich update in your face? Has your full-price, unlocked and SIM-free Galaxy S II been feeling left out of the Android 4.0 party? Then break out the USB cable and start up Kies, because today Samsung is officially sending out the ICS update via their desktop update software. Download Kies (if you haven't already) make sure your drivers are working properly, and click the "firmware upgrade" button.

HTC One X and One S now shipping in the UK

Alright Brits, you're always complaining about haw America gets all the good stuff first - movies, gadgets, Netflix, sandwiches that don't suck. With HTC's One series, you can now lord your mobile superiority over the former colonies. The HTC One X and One S are now officially on sale in the UK, both in their unlocked, full-priced versions and subsidized from carriers. Take your pick of Three, Orange, O2, Vodaphone and T-Mobile UK, almost all of which will give you either phone for free with a contract, though the price of the monthly plans will differ accordingly.

Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus hits the UK on March 17th

Were you smitten with the low/mid-range Galaxy Ace Plus the moment Samsung showed it off, with a complete lack of pricing or availability? Then prepare to be thrilled, assuming you live in the United Kingdom: the phone will be available at retail starting tomorrow, March 17th. Though Samsung said that the Galaxy Ace Plus would be available at various locations including Vodafone, they were carefully silent on the matter of pricing. Given the price of the former Ace model, something in the  £300-350 range seems likely.

Nook e-readers and tablets may be coming to the UK soon

The Barnes & Noble Nook line of e-readers and its more media-friendly Nook Color and Nook Tablet entries have gained a lot of fans here in the US, but in international markets they're basically a no-show. That may be coming to an end soon: a Nook developer workshop will be held on March 19th in London, reports E-Book Magazine. That's definitely an indication that Barnes & Noble is interested in the UK market, where its competitor Amazon has had basically free rein for the last few years.
