Official HTC Jelly Bean updates, ASUS details why the Nexus 7 has not rear camera, Windows Phone 8 Release Date Leaked as November 2012, & Sony's Xperia GX details for US and international models all on todays PlayinfiniteTV.

Google's Nexus 7 tablet may be receiving OnLive Universal Controller support soon. What the Jelly Bean-flavored device won't be getting, however, is a rear-facing camera. Now ASUS is offering an explanation for the omission -- and no, it isn't to prevent users from looking like a doofus when snapping photos in public. ASUS apparently faced two options for a rear-facing camera: go cheap or go for quality. The company says it decided against sticking a lower-end camera at the back of the device because it would compromise the user experience. Adding a high-quality rear camera, on the other hand, would increase costs too much, so that proposition was nixed as well. The good news is that apps such as Instagram are finding ways to make things work with just the Nexus 7's front-facing camera. In the meantime, here's a little ditty from Google that just might help put a smile on your face.

Unofficially, however, we've known for a while that Sony is preparing something big, in the form of a phone that has gone through more codenames and secret identities than Daniel Craig's James Bond. The LT29i, aka Hayabusa, aka Xperia GX, aka SO-04D, has been rumored for many months and has now made a "gala" appearance over at the FCC.

Before taking a look at the FCC's filing and what do the Commission's documents reveal about the smartphone, we should explain a bit about those four codenames and how they are tied together in a very exciting intrigue.

First, there was the LT29i, or the Hayabusa, which appeared in a leaked release schedule for 2012 with an ETA set for July and a rumored price of around $600. There was very little known about the phone at that time, but it was pretty obvious that Sony intended it to compete head-to-head against the snappiest high-end devices around.

Industry rumors usually come with a heaping helping of salt, unless they're being issued from a trusted source. In this case, it's Mary Jo Foley of ZDNet spilling some beans regarding Microsoft's release roadmap. Though we've already caught wind that Windows Phone 8 devices would be arriving sometime this fall with nearly all major carrier support, Foley's source is now pegging the RTM build of that mobile OS for September, with the finalized consumer version and accompanying hardware hitting the marketplace in November. Given that timing and an impending October 26th bow for Windows 8 also on the horizon, any plans Redmond might've had for a dual platform launch will have to be shelved. That's all she wrote for now, folks -- we'll surely find out more concrete details in the coming months. So, take this gossamer morsel for what it's worth.

"We know HTC fans are excited to get their hands on Google's latest version of Android. At this point in time, we can confirm that we have plans to upgrade our HTC One X, HTC One XL and HTC One S to Jelly Bean. Please stay tuned for more updates regarding device upgrades, timing and other details about HTC and Jelly Bean."
We've also learned that in addition to the aforementioned global models, carrier versions of the One X and One S for AT&T, T-Mobile and Rogers will also be receiving Jelly Bean. No word yet on timing, or whether the One V, EVO 4G LTE and Droid Incredible 4G LTE are included in those update plans.
