More and more users desire core Android seen only on select devices, such as the Nexus. At present, these people have reason to be thankful for because AT&T and T-Mo just announced the release of their Samsung Galaxy Note and S2 LTE Skyrocket versions that have the CyanogenMod 10.1. This ROM easily converts other user interfaces to the Android cores. Previously, the LG Optimus LTE and the Nitro HD were the first CM 10.1 ROM devices to be announced.
These nightlies will definitely up the smartphones' potential and people will really enjoy the true Android user interface. The news for the CM 10.1 ROM was announced last month with some of the Galaxy Note 2 variants, while international clients got theirs' earlier in December. This is not to say that the CM 10.1 ROM will fix ALL TouchWiz UI bugs and will not have any thereafter, but it is expected to really perk up the way people will use their smartphones.
Google has announced that Quickoffice is now free to download for iOS and Android. Google also concedes that not everyone has "gone Google" yet, and also the ‘.doc' holdouts don't make it easy for those who have.
You can get the free Quickoffice app on Google Play and in the App Store. Simply sign in with your Google Account to start editing Microsoft Office Excel, Word and PowerPoint files on your iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet. Quickoffice is integrated with Google Drive so you can safely and easily store and access your files across devices. Users who currently have Quickoffice for Google Apps for Business can update their app to the new version and will notice a new icon.
You'll also see a number of new features including the ability to create .ZIP folders and view charts in Excel and PowerPoint files. Plus, the new app works across devices so you don't have to worry about installing separate versions anymore when you go from using your phone to editing on your tablet.

Just as it was revealed a few weeks back, Sprint now offers a new color of the Samsung Galaxy S III, which will surely appeal to men and women who love purple. This variation, however, does not offer anything special, specs-wise, and the good ol' S 3 in Amethyst Purple is available on Sprint for $99.99 and a $50 mail-in rebate will also be honored for new customers who sign up for a two-year contract.
You will also be able to avail of it for the same price if you add a line or a new number to your existing account and these, according to Sprint, are only offered at a limited time. Furthermore, the success of the Galaxy S 4 and the demand for Galaxy S III will further determine the beloved device's price, except if Samsung releases an improved S III in the market, which is not too likely, but is not impossible either.
