Sprint and Verizon seem to be in the pole position for Jelly Bean binaries for several devices. Announced two days ago, the Nexus S 4G plus the GSM variant and the Moto Xoom WiFi are now capable of getting the tasty treat. In addition, the binaries for the GSM Galaxy Nexus and Verizon Galaxy Nexus have been updated. Unfortunately, Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus does not get VIP access to the fun this time around. As far as all these devices are concerned, JB should add a separate dimension of tech-wonder and usability to them. For the complete changelog and access to proprietary drivers, please visit…

  If you thought Verizon’s deal from last week, dropping the on-contract price of the Galaxy Nexus to $99, was great, wait till you hear about the new special offer for the “pure Google” device. Not only are Amazon and Big Red now offering the GNex for free with a two-year contract, but they are also throwing in a free $40 credit to sweeten the deal even more. And sweet it is, considering exactly how cool and snappy the Nexus still is, even compared with high-end smartphones released in the last few months. Powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor,…

The CyanogenMod 10 preview builds continue to trickle in, with Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus being the latest Android device to run a Jelly Bean-based preview of CM10.

CyanogenMod developer Brint Kriebel posted more details on Google+ regarding this early CM10 build: Since all the cool kids are doing it, I’m releasing a preview CM10 build for…

Things continue to look not-so-good for Samsung in its complicated patent-based lawsuit against Apple. The two giants are going to face each other off in courts starting with July 30 in the U.S. case, the most important one of for both companies – and they’re fighting it out in over 50 cases in 10 countries. Earlier today, we heard that Google warned Samsung that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 looked too much like the iPad, which is what Apple was able to get apparently from Samsung documents. Now we hear that the iPhone and iPad maker scored other similar documents that…

The Apple vs Samsung patent-based U.S. case is set to start on July 30, but until then we already have various tidbits to show you from the cases each company will try to prove in court in this legal clash of the titans – and they surely have a complex relationship. The two companies are fighting for market share and profits in the smartphone and tablet business, but they are also bound by a multi-billion dollar component supply partnership. Also important is the fact that they are facing each other off in more than 50 cases spread across 10 countries,…

In case you’re not aware of it, Apple and Samsung are embroiled in a complex legal patent-based battle that spans across four continents, in 10 markets. Of the over 50 cases between the two giants, two are of utmost importance right now, an Australian trial that has already started and – even more important for the mobile business – the U.S. trial that’s scheduled to begin on July 30. So far it’s Apple that has won the most favorable verdicts in its conflict with the Android device maker, including two recent injunctions obtained in the U.S. against Galaxy-branded devices such…

As expected for quite some time, Google has broken all  ties with Adobe Flash and ceased offering support for the web technology in the latest Android version, Jelly Bean. And while many users are probably doing fine without the multimedia platform, there surely are a few nostalgic ones who would like the chance to install Flash on their new Android 4.1-running gadgets. Fortunately, a couple of XDA-Developers forum members have already thought about that, so you can now easily and safely install Flash on any gadget with JB. Those who own a 4.1-running device with Android’s native browser app, like…

Once upon a time, sold for a premium $299 with a two-year contract, Verizon’s highly successful Galaxy Nexus smartphone has had its price dropped, slowly but steadily, over the last few months. The latest price reduction of the largest carrier stateside sees the Nexus drop to an unprecedented and extremely affordable $99.99, which might well put the 4.65″ back on the map of Big Red bestsellers. The 4G LTE-enabled Galaxy Nexus is available for a penny below 100 bucks only from Verizon’s website, and you’ll still have to sign that new 2 year carrier agreement to take advantage of the deal….
