Our friends over at Android Central have apparently gotten their hands on some marketing materials for the upcoming Droid Turbo for Verizon. They confirm much of the information that was already leaked, and also add a few new tidbits for you to chew on. As expected, this phone is packing some crazy hardware.

The screen is 5.2-inches, which we already knew, but this new info places the resolution at QHD (2560x1440).

It feels like Android L and the Nexus 6 are set to drop at any moment—you can almost sense the #NexusWarriors gathering at the fringes of the internet, ready to storm all the comment sections everywhere and tell you how great the Nexus 6 is. And maybe it will be, but for now all we have is a taste of what's to come with a leaked copy of Google's new Android ads with the slogan "Be Together, Not The Same." It includes a cameo by what appears to be the Nexus 6 running Android L.

Until now only those in a few areas of California and New York have been able to take advantage of Google Shopping Express, but that's changing now. As was previously rumored, Shopping Express is expanding to new cities and it's bringing a new name and pricing structure along with it. Google Shopping Express is now simply Google Express, and it requires a paid membership or per-delivery charge.

We're in a bit of a lull for Android Wear devices. All three launch watches have been released and the second wave is still on the way. You may be wondering, have the app developers slowed down? Hell no, and how dare you ask such a leading question in your head just how? It's okay, though. We forgive you. As penance, read the following zillion words about all the new apps for Android Wear from the last few weeks.

T-Mobile will continue to go it alone in the wilds of the US wireless industry after French telecom Iliad has announced it is dropping plans to buy the carrier from parent company Deutsche Telekom. Iliad's leadership had imposed a deadline of mid-October to decide whether to increase its previously rejected offer of $15 billion for a 56.6% stake in the Uncarrier. That's not happening, so the dream is dead.

Iliad first announced the offer as Sprint was reportedly in the late stages of acquisition talks with T-Mobile.

Sony's latest and greatest has been expected on T-Mobile for a few weeks, but now it's official. The Xperia Z3 will be available from T-Mobile on October 29th in stores. However, there's an online-only pre-sale kicking off on October 15th, meaning you can get the phone shipped before it's in stores.

The Xperia Z3 has the same 20.7MP camera most of Sony's recent phones have used, but the other specs are a bit improved with a 5.2-inch 1080p screen, 3100mAh battery, Snapdragon 801, and 3GB of RAM.

The Moto 360 isn't a perfect device, but it's still probably the king of Android Wear smart watches for the time being. One of the cool things about the 360 is the smarter way it makes use of ambient mode (not the ambient light sensor, that's different). The screen will stay on so you can see it without the full wrist-flip gesture, but you can make use of ambient mode to save power when you're not wearing the watch—just lay it face down.

The Moto X is out, and it's one of the best phones Motorola or anyone has ever made. Last year the Moto X was announced in tandem with the new Droids, but this year we're still waiting. It can't be long, though. The @DroidLanding Twitter account has just posted a teaser for the Droid Turbo, and it's red. Update: It looks like Verizon pulled the Tweet, but it's too late. WE ALREADY SAW IT, VERIZON.

The T-Mobile version of the LG G3 isn't bootloader locked, but all the others are. That's par for the course, but now you can finally do something about it. Bump! is a new bootloader unlock tool that will allow you to run a full version of TWRP and flash anything that has been "Bump'd."
