Continuing from last week, the LG Nexus 4 / LG Optimus Nexus / LG Nexus G / we don’t know what the final name is, posed for a whole bunch of high resolution photographs putting last weeks blurry pics to shame. We saw leaked specs and even a little mini review of the prototype Nexus all thanks to the Belarusian website, Onliner. It seems the Nexus 7 32GB edition might just be real after all. Loves us some leaks.
This week was one of those dream weeks in the Android world. Not only did we see a lot of rumors, we saw a completely new version of Android drop on the world. Android 4.1.2 was released this week for a few Nexus devices. The Nexus 7, GSM Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus S all started to receiving Google’s latest OTA update within two days of the announcement. That’s impressive. Sadly, the bastards of the group, the Sprint Nexus S 4G, Sprint Galaxy Nexus and the Verizon Galaxy Nexus were left to cry in the corner.
But wait, have no fear, ROOTin’ and ROMin’ is here! Google pushed the Android 4.1.2 source code and the latest round of binaries for all Nexus devices. CM10, Bugless Beast, Paranoid Android and a handful of others merged their sources, said let their be new ROMs and just like that, ROMs with Android 4.1.2 began pouring out.
A few popular apps got updated this past week. Google+, DropBox, Google Play Store and FoxFi magically started working on the Verizon Galaxy Nexus again. Google also dropped ZAGAT on the Play Store. As always, last but not least, we closed with patent wars. It seems others in the US legal system think that Judge Koh might not know what shes doing after all as an appeals court reversed the injunction on Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus here in the US.
All this and more on this week on Android Authority On Air.
