The point of Talk Mobile is that the conversation can carry on right through 2013, so even though we moved on from mobile gaming as an active conversation, which is how we kicked things off, doesn’t mean it’s time for things to stop. We covered all of the hot topics: mobile gaming vs. consoles, the dark side of mobile gaming, multiplayer mobile gaming, and we finished talking off about how mobile gaming could get better and what the future of mobile gaming looks like.
Update: HTC has also posted a longer-form version of the same video on Youtube, which you can see after the break.
Original story: HTC has taken to Vine and Instagram to tease an upcoming thing.
We all remember the Jackie Chan-endorsed $3,000 quad-core flip phone from Samsung from last year, or the more affordable W899 from the year before, right? Samsung is at it again, releasing another version of their Android folder which is likely headed to the Asian market.
Just as the NFL preseason kicks off, the NFL Mobile app for Android has received a serious facelift and also an unexpected issue for rooted users.

While many of us have our Chromecast dongle, and are happily playing with them and sending content to our televisions, there are plenty of folks who have some very valid questions about what the device is, what it can do, and especially what makes it different than a Google TV box.

Everyone is excited about the coming Nexus 7 sequel, even Best Buy by the looks of this sales circular. We don’t get a very good press image of the upcoming tablet, but we’ve seen that already so we can focus on the details instead. This ad mentions a 1920 x 1200 screen, 16GB of storage, and the same $230 price we reported last week.

The matte finish back with the Nexus logo in a landscape format, as well as the large rear camera opening are on board.

The Android Open Kang Project ROM is now available on 44 different devices, including new devices such as variants of the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and Sony Xperia. Notable new features include:
As we said when the first press renders of the Moto X hit the web, the leaks are just going to keep coming as we get closer and closer to its official reveal on August 1st.
