Nikon has announced a new camera in their popular Coolpix line, and this time around it’s running Android. The device will be available in May, and will cost $349.95.

Nikons first venture into Android powered cameras was a little behind the times and ran on Gingerbread, so it’s nice to see that this one is a little more up to date, with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. This one also has sharing and social capabilities, and when you’re away from WiFi, the device has a companion app to help you get your pictures out. Hit the break for the press release!

Philips’ new Android-powered television is certainly one to gush over. It features an eye-popping Ultra HD display and the smart TV runs Android 4.2.2 right out of the box. The televisions join Philips’ 8000 series. While the 48-inch and 55-inch models have a 1080p resolution, the 8800 is the UHD model that has the 3840×2160 resolution. Expect the 8000 smart TV series to hit shelves later this year with a slew of applications thanks to Android being at its core.

htc_one_x_422_update_versi_tweet

HTC’s Executive Director of Product Management tweeted some good news for owners of the AT&T HTC One X this evening. He indicated that “technical approval” had been received for the release of Sense 5 with the Android 4.2.2 update for the device. The update to Android 4.2.2 will be the end of the line for Android updates on the device, but users will at least get to experience some of the features of Sense 5 like Blinkfeed and Video Highlights to go with the new user interface.

According to Versi, the updates are targeted to rollout as an over-the-air update starting on Wednesday, January 29th. Are you still rocking an HTC One X and looking forward to this update?

The HTC One X+ is receiving Android 4.2.2 as we post. This will be the last update the device will receive, as we reported earlier. This update includes a Sense 5.0 user interface overhall, which has most of the features from the HTC One besides camera features and BoomSound. This is probably going to be a slow rollout, but you can try manually updating.

Here’s the changelog:

  • Android Version: 4.2.2
  • HTC Sense: 5.0
  • NFC Fixes
  • AT&T Address Book Fixes

Mx3 ubuntu

Meizu’s upcoming phone, the MX3, will apparently run Ubuntu as well as Android. This dual-boot feature will be extremely useful especially for developer-types who like to make use of both operating systems for programming.

How do we know this? The Meizu Weibo website recently leaked photos of the device running Ubunto— the information comes just a few days after Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth said that there is a Ubuntu device in the works that would be coming from a high-end manufacturer.  

The device is expected to come to the United States in Q3 and will also run Android 4.2.2.

DROID DNA to get Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5 very soon

DROID_DNA_Android_4.2.2_Update_Tweet

Good news DROID DNA owners. HTC Executive Director of Product Management Mohammed Versi tweeted that the Android 4.2.2 (along with Sense 5) update for the DROID DNA has been approved by Verizon. If you remember, back in September, Verizon posted the changelog for the update, but it never came. We can only assume that Verizon found some bugs that needed to be rectified. Verizon has the changelog, which is pretty hefty since this move is from Sense 4+ to Sense 5. HTC is throwing in Video Highlights, but it appears Zoe didn’t make the cut. I’m not sure why that would be the case.

The update could take place as soon as today, so be on the lookout.

LG_google_tv_update_01

Finally fulfilling a promise made back in May, some of LG’s Google TV devices are receiving the long-awaited Android 4.2.2 update. While updates are always welcome, this one takes away some of the finer treats of a Google TV device. The Chrome browser has been switched from the PC to Android version, leaving users without access to services like Hulu, watchESPN, or Crackle because Adobe Flash is gone. The update is 297.8 MB, so sit tight if you plan on grabbing it right away. Hit the break for the full changelog and another image of the update. » Read the rest

Verizon approves minor DROID DNA update, doesn’t include Sense 5 or Android 4.2.2

Lock_Screen_HTC_DROID_DNA_TAWhile we heard last month that Sense 5 and Android 4.2.2 or 4.3 would indeed be coming to the DROID DNA, we’re going to have to keep waiting. Verizon finally approved an update for the DROID DNA, but it doesn’t include Sense 5, or a new version of Android. Instead, users will receive a 33MB update to software version 2.07.605.1 710RD, which just adds support for TalkBack.

Samsung Galaxy Gear firmware based on Android 4.2.2

Galaxy-Gear_001_Front_Mocha-Gray

Samsung released the firmware for the Galaxy Gear (SM-V700), but what’s surprising is that it appears to be based on Android 4.2.2. One of the reasons why the Galaxy Gear is “only” compatible with the Galaxy Note 3 is because of Android 4.3′s Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) compatibility. Now I put “only” in quotes because it was found that the Galaxy Gear is somewhat compatible with the Galaxy S 4 even though that’s not supposed to happen till later this month. We couldn’t understand why, but this probably explains it. Interestingly enough, The Galaxy S 4 has built-in support for Bluetooth LE and that is why it will connect to the Gear.

DROID DNA to receive Sense 5 update “soon,” may be included with Android 4.2.2 or 4.3

htc-droid-dna-1_0

We now have news that the HTC DROID DNA will be receiving Sense 5 through Verizon soon, but we don’t know whether it will send alongside Android 4.2.2 or 4.3.

We previously believed that HTC would be skipping Android 4.2.2 on most of their devices, as they tweeted that since it was a “minor” update, they would be going straight to 4.3. This might have only been referring to the HTC One Dev Edition, but the tweet was not clear.

Either way, we do know that Sense 5 will be arriving soon, which will bring a series of updates that will improve your device.
