Tuesday Poll: Product You are Most Excited for This Week?

One of the biggest weeks in tech has arrived, thanks to IFA in Berlin and a separate event being held by Motorola where they are preparing to announce a handful of new products. It is going to get wild around these parts starting early tomorrow morning. Asus has a press event in the very early hours, where we should see the official unveiling of the ZenWatch. After that, Samsung will do its Galaxy Note 4 song and dance, followed by additional events for Sony and some other companies. Then once Thursday rolls around, the world will focus on Motorola and the new Moto X and Moto G, along with details on the Moto 360. LG will also be showing off their new G Watch R, round smartwatch, during IFA. Again, things are going to get nutty, but awesome.

We want to know which announcement or product you are most excited about. Will it be the new Note? Are you hoping to hear Sony confirm US availability for their next flagship? Or do you really just care about Motorola’s new line of products?

Let us know!

@DroidLanding is Back: Prepare for Either a New DROID Phone or Terrible App

The @DroidLanding Twitter account, an official and verified Twitter personality that has been used to unveil new DROID phones, apps and contests in the past, reactivated this afternoon. Well, it at least notified us that reactivation is “fast approaching,” which really means that something new is about to arrive with the DROID named attached to it.

Contest: Win a 64GB Sandstone Black OnePlus One From Droid Life!

Not only are we giving away $300 in Google Play gift cards this week to the wonderful DL community, but we also have a spare OnePlus One in Sandstone Black to hand out. This is the 64GB model that most are interested in, and the same one that I had a chance to review a month or so ago.

We decided to give one away since OnePlus is ridiculously behind on their availability estimates. In fact, you still can’t buy a OnePlus One without an invite, even though OnePlus had initially expected to make them widely available by the end of June. In case you weren’t keeping track, we are now in September. It’s a mess, to say the least.

Aside from all of the drama that this company can’t seem to avoid, the phone is still one of the best of 2014. As of today, I would put it up there with the LG G3 as the best of the year, ahead of both the HTC One (M8) and Galaxy S5. It’s combination of high-end specs, build quality, and incredibly low price make for one hell of a desirable smartphone.

Swarovski Unveils Crystal-Adorned Strap for the Samsung Gear S

As the Galaxy S5 before it, Samsung’s recently announced Gear S smartwatch is receiving the Swarovski treatment. For those looking for a “chic” and “fashionable” wristband to compliment the comparatively bland Gear S, there’s the newest addition to the “Swarovski for Samsung” collection: the Gear S Strap. Composed of Swarovski’s Crystal Fine Mesh and adorned with cut crystals, it’s the ultimate in luxury (or ostentation, depending on your perspective). (more…)
