SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 31, 2012

Welcome to the special Halloween edition of the Evening Wrap-Up! The Halloween edition is pretty much the same as regular Wrap-Ups, the only difference is that I'm dressed as Ginger Spice as I type this. Let's spice up our lives with a recap, shall we? Microsoft is being sued over its Windows 8 live tiles, and Apple has removed delivery dates from iPad Mini LTE pre-orders, leading some to suspect that the company has been forced to delay them. T-Mobile and AT&T have opened up their networks in areas hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, letting customers of both carriers use either network - a respectable move by the two carriers in this time of need.

Google has added Amber Alerts to search and maps results, while we heard that the LG Nexus 4 will be landing at 02 UK on November 13. Apple released its iPhone 5 launch video earlier today, and Microsoft dropped a full list of devices that are compatible with Windows RT. Apple delayed turn-by-turn navigation in Australia today, while Samsung finally pulled the veil off the long-rumored Galaxy Premier I9260 smartphone.

ASUS says that close to 1 million Nexus 7 tablets are sold each and every month, which definitely isn't bad, and Kickstarter has launched in the UK, so it's officially time to get your crowd-funding on. RIM has started BlackBerry 10 testing with its carrier partners, and the Google Nexus Q has disappeared from the Nexus landing page, suggesting that the big G may have pulled the plug on the project. What may be the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 cleared testing today, and a new dock that turns the Galaxy Note II into a desktop has gone up for sale.

LG has a new touchscreen monitor ready for some Windows 8 action, and Curiosity has found that some of the dust on Mars is similar to Hawaiian volcanic basalt. Netflix made a pretty big error in one of its SEC filings today, while Microsoft was busy transforming Lichtenstein for the launch of Halo 4. Speaking of Halo 4, Microsoft announced today that the Halo series has sold 46 million copies worldwide, so Halo 4 has a lot to live up to when it launches next week.

Finally tonight, we have a couple of original posts for you to have a look at. Chris Burns checks out the Galaxy Note II's gaming capabilities and goes hands-on with the Nokia Lumia 920 from AT&T. That does it for tonight's Evening Wrap-Up, enjoy the rest of your night everyone!
