LG Nexus G tipped for late October reveal

LG Nexus G tipped for late October reveal

With more than a year having passed since the last time Google revealed a brand new Nexus smartphone - yes, it's been that long - it would appear that the late-October tip appearing today for a Google-clean LG device could be very possible.

This information comes immediately following a MoDaCo leak with essentially the same information plus specifications.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 21, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday evening, everyone. Let's jump right into the news, shall we? Today Apple delivered its closing arguments in the suit against Samsung, and it didn't pull any punches. Additionally, we found out that jurors deciding the case have been given various devices to help them decide who's in the right, but can't do much of anything with them.

Nokia N9 sees Jelly Bean port

Nokia N9 sees Jelly Bean port

We’ve seen the Nokia N9 hacked in the past to run Android (Ice Cream Sandwich, specifically), and now the handset has been given yet another lease on life with a Jelly Bean port. Sure, not everything will be working correctly, but matching the latest version of Android with a beautiful piece of hardware is hard to ignore. Work on the Ice Cream Sandwich port still continues, with a lot of features still not working, but hopefully that progress can be applied to Jelly Bean in the meantime.

Galaxy Nexus sales ban to stay until further notice

Galaxy Nexus sales ban to stay until further notice

This week has been a bad one for the lawyers in charge of keeping Samsung's mobile products on the shelves as not only the Galaxy Tab 10.1 but the Galaxy Nexus have now had bids to end their preliminary sales ban in two separate Apple court cases. Apple is currently working on legal suits against Samsung in regards to alleged patent infringement and has won preliminary sales bans on both the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Nexus in the USA until the court cases take place. In other words - good luck trying to find either device for sale in the USA until the cases are resolved.

T-Mobile ICS updates lost on Samsung

T-Mobile ICS updates lost on Samsung

It seems that everyone with a Samsung phone or tablet will be getting an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich soon, with some limits, except for basically the entirety of T-Mobile. Sad as it may seem, Samsung's big list of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades today appears very much to have been relegated to everyone except for T-Mobile. T-Mobile Samsung devices that otherwise might have been upgradable at the moment include the Exhibit II 4G, Galaxy S Blaze 4G, and the Galaxy S II in white and titanium, each of these being suspiciously absent from the updates list.
