Android app downloads, and now this afternoon Google has released the latest Android distribution numbers for June showing some significant number changes.

Pantech. This 4.8-inch 720p display rocking smartphone is called the Pantech Perception and recently became available on Verizon for those on a budget. With specs similar to the Galaxy S III, and some features we've seen on the S4, it was worth a quick look so take a peek below.
Google from the patent department. According to reports the US Patent and Trademark Office has just granted Google the patent for facial recognition in Android. The impressive feature arrived with the Galaxy Nexus and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and today they now have a few full patents on the security option.
Galaxy Discover was revealed as coming to Straight Talk and Net10 earlier this morning, however it seems Samsung has opted to do something unique with this particular handset. They are going to launch it without the TouchWiz user interface. This will not change the fact that the device is launching with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but still, we suspect some may prefer a vanilla ICS as compared to a TouchWiz filled Jelly Bean experience.
Google. if you remember back to last month we were excited because Jelly Bean reached a double digit percentage and Cupcake officially dropped off.

we announced late last week, the good guys over at HTC have apparently been working on an update for the aging HTC Thunderbolt.

BLU has some big plans to shake up the smartphone space, today introducing a new line of smartphones that come complete with NVIDIA Tegra 3 processors.

There are three devices in all: the Quattro 4.5, Quattro 4.5 HD, and Quattro 5.7 HD.
HTC Thunderbolt we have some amazing news today that you probably thought was never coming. You'll never believe this, but HTC and Verizon have just confirmed and approved the update to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich for the LTE-packing device. After initially hoping for an August release date, multiple delays, and lost hope of many the update is finally being delivered.
