We all know the new Moto X is going to drop soon, and it's shaping up to be a fantastic phone. However, Motorola still has some last gen devices sitting around. What better way to get rid of them than to cut the price... a small price cut in this case. The Developer Edition Moto Xs for Verizon and GSM networks is now $399 instead of $449.

The LG G3 seems to be selling briskly these days, but LG is sweetening the deal a little more for potential buyers in the US. If you pick up a G3 between September 8th (today) and September 22nd, LG will give you a free spare battery and a charging cradle. That's $70 worth of swag, and it only takes a few minutes to get on the list.

The Fire Phone is a tough sell when there are so many great Android devices available with Google services, and it looks like AT&T agrees. After just a few months of (reportedly) poor sales, the Fire Phone has dropped to just $0.99 with a new 2-year contract. I'm seeing shades of the HTC First here.

It's still pretty common for OEMs to make 16GB the default storage option in phones, but you don't always have to live with that. If there's a microSD card slot, you can dump a ton of data on it—you just need to buy one first. Luckily, Amazon Goldbox has some killer deals on SanDisk storage products today only.

We knew Motorola was planning to sell the Moto 360 with a metal band later this fall, but Verizon already has a pre-order page up. That's the good news. The not so good news is that it won't ship until November 11th, according to the site. Ouch.

If you were lucky enough to get an order placed for the Moto 360 on Motorola's website before they went out of stock, keep an eye on your email. Motorola has already gotten some orders out the door at its Texas facility, with an expected arrival date of Tuesday, September 9th.

Chrome might be the default browser on Android these days, but Mozilla has done some great stuff with Firefox. The stable and beta channels are getting an update today to v32 and v33, respectively.

YouTube is a somewhat respectable internet destination, but that doesn't mean you want to turn a kid loose on it. HomeTube is the newest app from Chris Lacy, and it aims to make it easier for kids to watch the YouTube vids you deem appropriate. You can even give it a shot for free.
