The upcoming HTC M7 has been pictured out in the wild ahead of its official unveiling. Not only are these the clearest shots of the device we’ve seen to date, but they also show off its new Sense 5.0 user interface, and a new button arrangement beneath the display. This isn’t believed to be a final version of the device, but it’s likely to be the closest we’ll get until its official unveiling.

Just as we expected, Acer has announced a new Android tablet at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas today.

It appears Samsung is hard at work on a new Android handset that combines a physical QWERTY keyboard with a touchscreen, possibly to succeed the Galaxy M Pro GT.

Huawei has already confirmed that it has a number of new handsets lined up for CES 2013 next week, two of which will be powered by Android.

Acer appears to be preparing a new entry-level addition to its Iconia tablet family, according to an FCC application for the Iconia Tab B1-A71.

Verizon has responded to an FCC complaint about their shameless blocking of the Google Wallet application, and as expected, has placed the blame on Google. Not only did they place the blame on Google, but they actually denied blocking the app in the first place. It’s actually quite comical to read their response:
SoftBank, Japan’s third-largest carrier, has this morning announced that it will acquire Sprint in a deal worth $20.1 billion. The company will purchase $8 billion in newly-issues shares from Sprint, in addition to $12.1 billion in existing shares — giving it a 70% stake overall.
