Thanks to Motorola’s Cyber Monday $150 deal for Moto X Developer Edition units, we were able to buy two to hand out to DL readers. After giving away the Verizon version last week, we still have the GSM version to give away today. From the time of this posting until tomorrow at noon Pacific, you will have the chance to enter to win this tinkerer-friendly phone. And don’t forget that it also comes in a semi-exclusive black-white colorway, along with “DEVELOPER EDITION” branding on the backside.
Again, this is the GSM model which means it should work perfectly on both AT&T and T-Mobile networks here in the U.S. It supports all of their LTE bands according to Motorola’s list of specs. Have you considered unlocked phones and prepaid services yet? We did a write up on the best prepaid plans for those new to the game.

Regardless of whether your device features a dedicated Menu button or not, Google has decided to push OEMs in the right direction and are now enabling the action overflow button permanently throughout applications. Previously, some applications wouldn’t show an action overflow button depending on if your device featured a dedicated hardware/on-screen menu button for an options menu, such as certain Samsung devices like the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3.
Moving forward, there will now always be one within an app for easy access, according to a Git repository change by Google. (more…)
It’s time for another Q&A Session here at DL, a feature that we really love to do. This allows you, the readers, a chance to ask our team anything that might be on your mind, whether it be Android related or even somewhat personal.
If you are still stuck on which phone to get your lover for Christmas or what teams you need to bet on in the NFL playoffs, this is the place to ask. We are always blown away by the quality of questions our community comes up with, so let’s have some fun. (more…)
Now that Motorola’s $150-off promo for the Moto X is officially closed for the year, we are starting to see the codes flooding into our inbox from DL readers who grabbed them for no other reason than to share with the community (yes, people are that awesome). Last week, we ran a contest to give away codes, but this time around we are simply going to leave this post open for you to share amongst yourselves. Well, that’s not entirely true.
We have a handful of codes to giveaway in this post that were already given to us, all of which will be left there for the next 15 minutes. We will assume after that amount of time that someone has claimed them and will then remove them. (more…)
AT&T announced big news this morning, partnering with Rogers Communications to offer U.S. customers the ability to connect to 4G LTE networks while roaming in our neighbor to the north, Canada. The deal actually makes AT&T the first U.S. carrier to offer such a deal, as usually customers are kicked down to HSPA+ networks or 3G.
With a Data Global Add-on package purchased, customers can get 4G LTE in bundles of 120MB for $30/mo, 300MB for $60/mo, and 800MB for $120/mo. It seems pricey, but can you really put a price on international LTE speeds? /sarcasm (more…)
The big Thanksgiving holiday shopping weekend may be over for many, but I’d image I’m not the only human that completely avoids doing any shopping on that weekend. Instead, I do my shopping when things tone down a bit the couple of weeks before, in hopes that most people have already crossed everything off of their lists and have left the mall to me, just me. That or sites like Amazon continue to make it easy for me to never leave my cave with deals like today’s 20%-off Kindle family promotion. (more…)
A new piece of info hit the web this weekend, concerning a possible LG-made Nexus 8 tablet with model number V510. If you will recall, the V510 has been going back and forth in the eyes of bloggers who continue to either try and confirm that this is a new Google tablet or debunk it as a LG G Pad 8.3 with LTE connectivity. According to @evleaks’s newest tweet, the V510 is indeed a Google Nexus device. (more…)
Nexus devices including the Nexus 5, Nexus 4, and variants of the Nexus 7 were receiving an OTA update last week to build number KOT49E of Kit Kat, Android 4.4.1. The update is now available for Nexus 10 tablet owners, who can either wait for the update to roll out or simply sideload the file using adb. Either way, when you own a Nexus, it’s nice to have options. (more…)
