What are you looking for? An adapter card or a usb/wifi thing?

I've got a spare network adapter card sitting around (probably 10 years old but works fine last I checked).

Yeah my wife hogged the TV and laptop last night, so didn't get a chance to try the chrome browser stuff yet. But the phone and tablet stuff work great.

Is it possible to give someone your cell phone upgrade? Not someone on your plan, just someone you know.

You might want to ask that in the Verizon Forum. I kind of doubt it, though...

I would think you could upgrade your phone (get the device they want) and then just have them activate the IMEI (or pop SIM in) on their account.

Not going to happen unfortunately. Google only deals with GSM when it comes to phones thanks to how Verizon treated the Gnex.

The only event I know of is the X event and that is Thursday. Is there another?

Sad news today. Verizon talked a friend out of unlimited data

So Bluetooth Low Energy is confirmed to be working on all variations of Galaxy Nexus (with a code change) on 4.3 ROMs. Cannot wait to flash a fully stable ROM on this bad boy and get syncing with my Fitbit. I hate having to wait until I go home for my dashboard to update, first world problems I guess.

Happy hump day!!

Screen is better, text is so sharp. Seems quite a bit snappier. The profile change will definitely help smaller hands hold it, but that combined with the thinness makes it seem a little less secure in my hand... Need to get a case for it. Haven't got a chance to test speakers yet. Back Camera is nothing to write home about. But I suppose it's better than nothing.

Overall it's not groundbreaking, but it's a nice improvement.

Awesome! Why was this not enabled from get get-go! This is why I do not want a Nexus in the future.

Nice. After loading 4.3 on mine it seems to be a bit snappier too. I'm sure the hardware upgrade makes it even better on the new one. I debated selling mine and upgrading, but I'll just wait. A new phone is in my near future and I don't use my tablet near as much as my phone...so I'll be happy when I get that upgraded.

Ugh, 4.3 update situation is such a mess on the Nexus 4. Apparently, Google sent out the wrong version.

I believe the Nexus was only BT3.0 certified, but had BT4.0 hardware so they had to disable the code for BLE in the Android 4.3 release, but it was in the main branch. So with some poking around people re-enabled it and confirmed it works on the Galaxy Nexus running 4.3, which rocks.

Samsung did some proprietary BLE stuff in TouchWiz to allow for it prior to 4.3 and that is what Fitbit was using to sync, but now it can be an Android standard.

I'm not sure, but it is pretty dumb. Not to mention there were plenty of people that ended up bootlooped flashing the factory image through the bootloader, and flashing back to 4.2.2 didn't fix it.

Big oops for sure. Sorry N4 folks. on the bright side is not like it's lost in the hands of Google, just means you have to work a little harder to get it.

Not just that, that was also the version they sent out OTA. Hopefully it's a quick fix like they did with 4.2->4.2.1

Since 4.3 seems to have improved file i/o, I wonder if that will fix a lot of lag on my TF Infinity, assuming it gets an update to it.

I still have not got the update for my Nexus 7 (2012). Why it taking so long?

Have you tried the "clear framework" trick yet?

Samsung did some proprietary BLE stuff in TouchWiz to allow for it prior to 4.3 and that is what Fitbit was using to sync, but now it can be an Android standard.
Yeah, I discovered a while back it had 4.0 hardware but knew it wasn't supported in the code. If it had the hardware to begin with, why not certify it and make it working.

Same thing with the text message access on the MyFord Touch system. It's just another bluetooth access protocol that just needs a software update to manage it. Wife's Rezound handles it fine, my phone won't work at all.

I know I shouldn't be just because I shouldn't get my hopes up...but I'm getting excited about the X Phone event today. If they put as much work into the computer architecture as they claim they have, this thing could be amazing. Could mean great battery life AND great performance. Off-loading menial tasks like detecting input and letting really low power chips handle that should free up more resources for the main CPU and not let it get bogged down during use. Same thing applies when the phone is in sleep mode. Should keep the main CPU in a low power idle while the external chips determine what is important enough to "wake up" the main chip.

No live blogging. It is an all day event. Unless you are press or happened to live in new York and followed Motorola on Twitter yesterday to get a ticket, I believe info doesn't start coming out until after 3pm or maybe 8pm. I'm pretty sure its 3 though.

Running a 4.3 ROM that I flashed this morning - so far it seems really nice, nothing majorly changed but a bit faster.

Might need to go back to a bit more customized ROM (maybe JBSourcery based on 4.3), but there are a lot of features missing. Running the BLE build and I have two apps: one that checks for BLE in the ROM which it detected and one to scan for BLE devices which detects my Fitbit one. Unfortunately the Fitbit app isn't updated to take advantage of the native BLE API from Google in 4.3 so I can't test if the sync actually works properly until that time.

So far so good - will post more thoughts after some use, but its a nice upgrade from Google.
