Motorola XFON skirts Nexus 5 rumors, pushes for cross-carrier US release

Motorola XFON skirts Nexus 5 rumors, pushes for cross-carrier US release

This week the fabled Motorola hero device called "X Phone" before this week has resurged in the tip lines at the Motorola XFON, complete with Qualcomm hardware compatibility with 4G LTE across all major carriers in the USA. This device has appeared several times in the recent past in both front and back hands-on photos with what appears to be a soft plastic back, a relatively large back-facing camera, and a palm-sized body. It's been tipped most recently that this XFON device will be ready for both AT&T and Verizon this July.

Google I/O 2013 tipped to bring Nexus 4 LTE with Key Lime Pie

Google I/O 2013 tipped to bring Nexus 4 LTE with Key Lime Pie

This week the rumors are running like mad with Google's next-edition Nexus device being revealed not as the Nexus 5 (not yet, at least), but the LG-made Nexus 4 with a newly enlarged standard 32GB internal storage size and 4G LTE connectivity. This device will quite likely be revealed as the first hero smartphone to be running Google's own Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, the newest edition of their mobile operating system - also not yet confirmed by the company.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update step-by-step

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update step-by-step

This week we're seeing the last of the iterations of the so-called Galaxy "Nexus" as it exists on Verizon's 4G LTE network. The Verizon Galaxy Nexus (made by Samsung, mind you) has since birth been plagued with talk of its mudblood-like software from the carrier as Verizon modified its contents past what Google originally intended - thus besmirching the purity of the Nexus smartphone line. Because of this Verizon-specific build, the Galaxy Nexus is last in line to receive the update to Android 4.2.2 - but here it is, ready for action!

Predictions for Google’s Android in 2013: Freedom for All!

Predictions for Google’s Android in 2013: Freedom for All!

At the start of 2012 the folks at Google were seeing their beloved Android mobile operating system being used on more iPhone clones than we'd care to discuss - near the turn-over to 2013, big manufacturers like Samsung and HTC have made their own hero lines the likes of which Android has never known. What we saw in 2012 was recognition of the model that has worked for Apple extremely well since all the way back in 2007 - a focus on the ecosystem rather than on the individual specifications of any one device. This will continue in a very big way through 2013 with manufacturers holding up a single torch - like the Motorola RAZR brand - to keep themselves lit up brightly.

Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note II hands-on with speed tests and benchmarks

Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note II hands-on with speed tests and benchmarks

The Samsung Galaxy Note II is ready for action on Verizon's 4G LTE network now, and what better way to usher in a new version of the device that's also out on several other networks than to do some speed tests and processor benchmarks? The big differences between the Samsung Galaxy Note II on Verizon and the competition's carrier networks is the speed at which it accesses data, the cost of the data therein, and of course the Verizon-specific apps (mostly for tracking your data and your data costs.) Other than that it's the same cool Galaxy Note II experience you've gotten used to on T-Mobile, AT&T, and internationally.

LG Spectrum 2 Review (Verizon)

LG Spectrum 2 Review (Verizon)

We've been seeing a lot of really good high-end handsets lately (like the Galaxy Note II and the HTC DROID DNA), but all the while, LG has been putting out some solid mid-range phones. Not too long ago, we reviewed the LG Optimus L9, a mid-range device at T-Mobile that wasn't extraordinary in any way but still a quality handset all around, and today it's the Verizon Spectrum 2 that's taking center stage. The question is whether or not this smartphone is yet another good mid-range entry from LG, or if it falls short when held up against the dozens of other mid-range handsets ready to be taken home.

A Google plan to kill carriers with WiFi is all too believable

A Google plan to kill carriers with WiFi is all too believable

Could you live your mobile life on WiFi? Attempts to ween users off of expensive, subsidized smartphone deals have been more successful this year than every before; word earlier today that Google had acquired a WiFi hotspot company - and which later turned out to be false - was believable in part because the search company is a prime candidate for ousting cellular from the mobile equation. The ICOA deal may be fake, but Google's appetite to ditch the traditional carriers and strike out more or less alone isn't new.
