As we await Tuesday's Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and Android 4.2 launch, there's just enough time to get caught up on the past week's Android news from around the world. It's been a whirlwind of device launches, rumors and other news, and we've even gotten around to bringing you a couple of reviews in the past few days.

First up is Phil's definitive LG Nexus 4 review -- if you've got any burning questions about this year's Nexus handset, or the software that's running on it, you'll find your answers in this 6000 word tome. And if you're wondering about upgrading from the Galaxy Nexus, we've got a quick comparison article to help you on your way.

It wasn't all Nexus this week, though. We brought you a full review of the HTC One X+, the souped-up successor to the One X, with a faster CPU, a bigger battery and Jelly Bean out of the box. The phone launched this week in Europe and is headed to AT&T soon, so if you want to get the verdict on HTC's latest, the review's where you should be looking.

Elsewhere, it was all about phone launches. HTC brought the One SV to Southeast Asia, Samsung launched the Galaxy S3 Mini and Galaxy Camera in Europe, and the Sony Xperia J arrives on UK carrier Three.

And in Mobile Nations news, we launched the new Mobile Nations Passport service, which allows you to easily log into  Android Central and sister sites iMore, CrackBerry, WPCentral and webOSNation with a single account.  You can also sign in using your Google, Twitter, Facebook and Microsoft accounts. It's pretty spiffy, so if you haven't tried it out yet, hit up the link at the top of the page.
