The first press images for the white Nexus 4 have apparently hit the web, but a launch date is not yet in sight.
A tipster sent Android Police these press images, revealing that the white Nexus 4 won’t arrive in a 32GB capacity. Instead the white handset will be available in either 8GB or 16GB versions. The white version apparently has model number E960W, while the current model has model number E960.
All other specs “remain the same, including Android 4.2,” so it looks like Android 4.3 can’t be confirmed at this time.
The white Nexus 4 has been spotted in the wild just before Google I/O, prompting speculation that Google would announce the device during the keynote. However, that didn’t happen, as Google only announced a Nexus experience Galaxy S4 at the event. The white Nexus 4 was seen at the event, albeit not in an official manner.
Considering that the press renders for the white Nexus 4 have already appeared, it would make sense to assume that a launch could be just around the corner. At Google I/O we heard that the white Nexus 4 running Android 4.3 would arrive on June 10, but that potential launch date is yet to be confirmed.
Lenovo announced the Ideaphone K900 back in January. The announcement took place during CES and while Lenovo was forthcoming in terms of specs, they were rather quiet in terms of when the handset would begin shipping. At the time all we heard was about how the K900 was expected to begin shipping around April.
Well, as it turns out that April timeframe is not going to hold up. Lenovo however, hasn’t missed that by much though and has since announced the Ideaphone K900 will begin shipping on May 6. As we were expecting to happen, the handset will initially be available only for those in China. No word if, or when the K900 will begin shipping to other markets.
This is a handset that may appeal to those looking for something with a larger display. The K900 has a 5.5-inch display. Said display is IPS and sporting a resolution of 1920 x 1080 with a PPI of 440. The K900 is powered by a 2GHz Intel Clover Trail processor with 2GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera and running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
Touching back on the camera, as you will see, that is one of the focus points from the video. Here you will learn how this was about more than just having the highest megapixel camera — the K900 has a Sony Exmor lens with F1.8 focal length. All that being said, those curious about the Lenovo K900 may want to check the above video which shows a bit of our hands-on time from CES.

Asus Cube (formely Asus Qube) available for pre-order: slightly changed name, price and release date0
Asus Qube, the company’s foray into the world of Google TV, has been announced in January and then delayed, but it’s finally available for pre-order.
While it was already a known fact that those who want an Asus Qube would be able to get their hands on the device on April 23, at a price of 0, things have changed (but not too much, really).
Newegg has it available for pre-order, with the first change being the name. The device is no longer called Asus Qube, but rather Asus Cube, and this is most certainly not a mistake on the retailer’s part, as a picture of the box and its contents has been posted, too (you can see it below).
The second difference is the price, which is increased a bit: the 0 has turned into 9.99, but if you pre-order before April 23, you also get a gift card, which compensates completely. That brings us to the third change. Should you pre-order the Asus Cube, you’ll get it on April 24, instead of April 23, the previously announced release date (it’s just a day, so it shouldn’t make too much of a difference).
The Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher which was set to make its big screen debut on April 19 has now been delayed. According to a report by Deadline, the film will no longer arrive on April 19 and no new date has been announced yet either. The film’s original release was set to coincide with the date that the late Steve Jobs had founded Apple.
The release date of the Steve Jobs biopic that stars Ashton Kutcher has quietly been postponed. jOBS,which closed the Sundance Film Festival this year, had been set by Five Star Films and its distributor Open Road for April 19. It has moved off that date, and a new date has not been determined. Five Star made a service release deal with Open Road before the festival started, and the film’s backers were eager to release on the month marks the 37th anniversary of Jobs founding Apple.
The reason for the delay appears to be lack of time to prepare the films marketing and create a buzz around the film before its release. As soon as we hear more on a new release date, we will let you know. The movie which stars Ashton Kutcher in the role of Steve Jobs and Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak covers only a small part of the Apple and Jobs story from 1971-2001.

“Let the uploads begin.” That’s what OUYA said in a blog post that was put up on Thursday. The company announced that its app store is ready to go and is now accepting game submissions, as it quickly approaches the March 28 launch date for its Kickstarter backers.
OUYA has launched its Developer Portal where game developers will be able to download the OUYA Development Kit. From there, they will be able to start uploading their games to the OUYA app store before the official launch of the console. That way, developers have their games on the OUYA store by March 28 and consumers will be able to play away.
Developers who upload their games ahead of March 28 will have their games available to play on March 28. Games uploaded to OUYA will have to go through a submission process, so if you want your game on the OUYA store on launch day, it would be wise to upload it before the console is officially launched.
Furthermore, OUYA is starting from scratch again. That means that if you’ve previously uploaded your games, you’ll have to upload them again to get them on the OUYA store. After that though, OUYA says you will have free reign over your game when it’s time to update your titles. You’ll be able to do it whenever you need too.
OUYA will film documentaries of certain developers
Finally, to encourage developers to put games on the OUYA store, OUYA has said that it will select the top three games, which is measured by popularity, and will be filming documentaries on each of these games. OUYA did not mention when these documentaries would be available, but the offer is up for anyone who is able to get their game on the top three within six weeks of the console’s launch.
It was mentioned that the documentaries will be used for launch marketing when the console is widely available in June, so you can expect them to be available for viewing by then.
Will you be uploading a game to the OUYA store? Be sure to let us know in the comments!

Rumors have been floating around the internet the last couple of days that the BlackBerry Z10 will be available on AT&T come March 15th. We didn’t post on that story yet because the odds are slim that will be the day you can go into a store and buy one.
While many folks around the world have been enjoying their shiny new BlackBerry Z10′s for weeks now, the one big market that everyone is waiting for still is the good ol’ U.S. of A. AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon have been vocal about the fact their releases will be happening between March and April, with Verizon being the latest. However, to break it down and say yes you can walk into a store on this specific day and pick up a BlackBerry Z10, well that information hasn’t been unannounced yet. In fact, even pre-orders have yet to be announced by U.S. carriers. To date the big three have only rolled out simple sign up pages to let folks know they will be carrying the BlackBerry Z10 phone.

Unveiled for the first time a full nine months ago, the Asus Transformer AiO part Windows 8 all-in-one PC/part Android tablet pretty much divided the tech world in two. There were those who saw it as brilliant innovation and those who called it a monstrosity. A beastly Frankensteinian creature, if you will.
A heated debate might have started, only no one really believed it would turn into reality. No matter what side were you on, you still could have smelled the vaporware stench. But then the hybrid got a second unveiling this January and now a third, along with the much awaited revealing of the spec sheet and pricing.
Where do we start? How about with the confirmation that the 18.4-inch display boasts a Full HD 1,920 x 1,080 pixels resolution? The thing also has 10-point touch, so it definitely sounds nice.
On the tablet part, you get a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor with an unknown clocking speed, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of on-board storage, microSD support, a 1 MP front-facing cam and a 32 Whr battery capable of around 5 hours of continuous use.
Not exactly ideal for a top-tier 2013 tab, but at least there’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to butter the thing up. As far as design goes, the slate looks like your ordinary Asus Eee Pad, only, you know, a lot bigger. It weighs 5.28 pounds by itself, so don’t even think about this as a travelling pal.
Meanwhile, once you dock the tablet into the PC station, you’ll get a far snappier computing machine with Windows 8, an Intel Core i5-3350P processor, 8 GB of RAM, a 1 TB HDD and a GeForce GT 730M GPU. There’s also a SuperMulti DVD Drive there, as well as a wide selection of ports and connectivity options – USB 3.0, HDMI, Wi-Fi, Ethernet and an SD card reader.
Of course, you can still use the hybrid with Android even when it’s connected to the dock and all you have to do is flip a switch conveniently placed on the right side of the PC station. The entire “creature” weighs in at around 9 pounds and will go on sale on April 12 for… wait for it… ,299.
Wow, that’s actually not bad. It’s a pretty penny, no doubt about it, but there are plenty of traditional all-in-one PCs around that go for just as much. And this one brings the best of both worlds. Or does it? What do you guys think? Innovation or monstrosity?
The post It’s alive: Asus Transformer AiO gets official spec sheet, pricing and release date appeared first on Android Authority.
The HTC One is going to hit various markets in the near future, with AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile being among the confirmed mobile operators that will have it in stock later this year.
However, neither HTC nor its U.S. partners mentioned any availability dates for the new flagship handset yet. But at least one American HTC One version has been spotted at the FCC, seeking official approval.
The device is most likely Sprint’s HTC One, considering that it features Sprint LTE (band 25). Moreover, according to available documentation, the test unit is actually a production model, meaning that the device could be launched in the very near future.
In addition to Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile will also sell the HTC One later this year, with Verizon yet to named among the HTC One carriers. That’s why we’re not surprised to also hear that two more HTC One versions have also been spotted at the FCC, one sporting quad-band LTE (2, 4, 5 and 17) and the other one dual-band LTE (4, 17)
We’ll be back with more launch details for the U.S. HTC One models as soon as we have them. Will you buy the device?
A short while ago we heard that with PlayStation 4, which Sony will unveil later today, will not be all about the hardware. Instead Sony will focus on offering more features to users including some sort of mobile integration.
That makes plenty of sense considering that the Japanese giant also happens to be in control of its own growing brand of Android handsets and tablets, not to mention that the competition – namely Microsoft – is also offering mobile integration to its Xbox buyers via various companion apps.
The PlayStation 4 gets official in a few short hours, but we have a new report for you that says the new console will be launched at some point in November and that pricing will be announced at the E3 event later this year. According to a source familiar with the matter, the console will come in two versions, priced at 9 and 9, although (obviously) pricing will be subject to change.
What’s more interesting to us, given that we’re covering mobile and mobile-related devices on a daily basis, is the PS4’s mobile capabilities.
The same source has told Kotaku that the PS4 will also be controllable via smartphone and tablet, something that doesn’t strike us as completely surprising in this “post PC” era:
New information revealed by our source suggests that on top of all that, you’ll also be able to control the PS4 remotely from your tablet or smartphone. You’ll be able to use a mobile device to chat with your PS4 friends or buy games which are then automatically downloaded to your machine, our source says.
But does that also mean that you’ll be able to use such devices to play games? We’ll have to wait and see what Sony announces later today.
Other PS4 details have also leaked, like a new online service that’s supposedly going to be called PlayStation World and a new feature, PlayStation Eye that’ll let users watch friends play games.
More importantly, there’s also a new PS4 controller in the works, one that seems to incorporate a touch pad of some sort in addition to the regular buttons and sticks you expect it to have.
The report doesn’t mention Android in particular when referring to mobile devices, but in case the PS4 will offer support for mobile, Android will definitely there. We’d expect Sony to be interested to support a variety of mobile operating systems, but at the same time, we can’t but wonder if it’ll include any sort of special features for Android smartphones and tablets, particularly Xperia-branded ones.
That’s right, folks, the Galaxy S4 rumor mill is churning out more rumors and leaks and today we’re looking at a supposedly leaked document coming from a South Korean research company that suggests the flagship device will be launched in March.
Naturally, we advise you to hang on to your grain of salt, as nothing can be confirmed at this time. As you can see in the following image, found by Italian blog Chaotic.it in a leaked document, there’s no actual release date mentioned in the table other than the month, while certain handset characteristics including size, weight and screen type are not listed. Not to mention that the press image of the device is not available either.
What the spreadsheet does reveal is that the handset will sport an Exynos 5440 processor, therefore not an Exynos 5 Octa CPU, a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 display, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean under the hood. Some of these specs have already been mentioned in a variety of reports, although it’s not yet clear what CPU the Galaxy S4 will use. The Exynos 5 Octa is certainly one of the candidates, but depending on what rumor you read or what benchmark you check out, you’ll see Qualcomm Snapdragon and Exynos 5440 also mentioned.
In addition to the Galayx S4, other Samsung handsets are included in the document, all of the already available in stores: the Galaxy S3 LTE, the Galaxy Note 2, the Galaxy S3 mini and the Ativ S. We’re looking at Figure 41 of the report, titled 1Q13 SEC smartphone lineup.
In case you’re wondering where all this comes from, you can check out the PDF that the image is taken from (second Source link below,) and you’ll see that it was supposedly created by financial group Mirae Asset Securities and has plenty of other tables in it, analyzing Samsung’s performance, its competitors and offering a forecast for the year. The report is 16 pages long, dated February 14, 2013, and offers a buy rating for Samsung investors.
The Galaxy S4 is apparently set to go into production in March, with the company currently gathering necessary components. A late-March launch, at least in some markets, following immediately the launch event, would make some sense. Again, we’re assuming this isn’t some elaborate hoax. At the same time we’d also remind you that analysts don’t always get their information right, so nothing they say is set in stone.
Previously, other rumors said that the Galaxy S4 would be unveiled in mid-March and would hit stores by early April, at least in some markets. But now it appears that the handset could be released a bit earlier than anticipated. Is Samsung trying to avoid losing customers to the Sony Xperia Z/ZL duo or HTC One, that is if the report is accurate?
We’ll be back with more details about the Galaxy S4 as soon as we have them, so stick around!
