Anyone remember that FCC complaint we showed you last week? The one filed by a consumer against Verizon for blocking Google Wallet? Anyone remember the official response by Verizon? No? Let me refresh your memory.
One of the standout features of the Galaxy Note II happens to be its Multi Window view. Unfortunately, not every Note II model currently has this feature available to it. T-Mobile has been dragging its feet with the update but will finally push it out to users come this Wednesday December 19th.

I’m happy to announce yet another Jelly Bean update rolling out. Owners of the AT&T Motorola Atrix HD should start to see the update hit their device sometime today. If you haven’t received it yet, you can always check to see if it’s available by heading into Settings>About Phone>Software Updates.
Remember that ASUS Nexus 7 dock we showed you last month? You know, the one that’s supposed to go on sale in Japan this month? Well, looks like some lucky fella got one early and did what any sensible guy would do — unboxed it on YouTube to make us all jealous.
Getting an update on Verizon is like being picked last in a game of pickup basketball. Nevertheless, Verizon has announced that it will begin pushing out Jelly Bean to the Galaxy S III tomorrow. The update is set to go out in phases so don’t freak out if you don’t get it right away.
In case you haven’t heard, Jelly Bean began rolling out to the Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE today. Not only does it bring all the goodies of Android 4.1.1, but it also includes Sense 4+ — for those of you that are into that sort of thing. If the update hasn’t hit your device yet, you might want to head over to Settings>System updates>HTC Software Update>Check now and give that a go.
Motorola no longer has its sight solely on Apple as they’ve now turned their attack towards Android’s top dog Samsung. Motorola’s latest ad campaign pits the Motorola RAZR HD against the Samsung Galaxy S III, with a slogan of “It’s not easy. downloading… from another galaxy.” Motorola boasts an outrageous claim of 49% faster download speeds, which I find extremely difficult to believe considering the U.S. Samsung Galaxy S III has the same Qualcomm processor and modem as the RAZR HD — not to mention 1GB more RAM.
