Mashable is sort of the middle ground for breaking stories and Internet memes: it includes metrics so that the most popular stuff gets to the top, but the formatting and content are friendly enough to appeal to a wider group of users than, say, Reddit. Now there's an official app available in the Play Store. Samsung seems to have secured an exclusive for the launch.

At the moment the description says that you'll need a Galaxy S4, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, or any of the new Galaxy Tab 3 models to download and use the app.

We were told that Motorola's new flagship would be coming soon, and we have not been disappointed. According to a press release issued this morning, the Moto X will be available at AT&T retailers and in the online store on August 23rd. Customers can order a customized model from the Moto Maker website, or use special kiosks in stores to begin the color and text selection process.

The 16GB model of the Moto X will be $199.99 on a two-year contract, with the AT&T exclusive 32GB version running $249.99.

GalaxyS4-Purple-Thumb

School's about to start, and nothing goes with that new backpack quite like a Galaxy S4 rocking a dazzling shade of purple. No longer will Sprint customers have to sacrifice power and functionality for the sake of fashion. Especially considering that the Moto X's customization will initially only be available to AT&T customers, the Purple Mirage Galaxy S4 is about as vibrant an option as a Sprint customer looking for a high-end phone is going to have anytime soon.

The flick-gesture for quickly opening the camera app on the Moto X and new DROIDs has been repeatedly highlighted by Motorola. And like any buzz-worthy feature in an upcoming phone, it's been almost immediately duplicated. Twisty Launcher popped into the Play Store last night, promising to deliver a customized version of this gesture-based feature, with the added benefit of being compatible with any device or app.

The name "launcher" is a bit of a misnomer - Twisty launches apps, but it isn't a homescreen in any way.

Much has been made of the fact that Motorola's shiny new flagship is made (or at least assembled) in America. But there's a downside to this: it looks as though aspiring Motorola customers in Europe, Asia, Australia, and the rest of the world will have to do without. Motorola has made it clear that the Moto X is only for the US, Canada, and Latin American markets.

That isn't to say that the company is not concerned with the worldwide marketplace.

One of the coolest features for the Moto X is Motorola's Moto Maker system, a website that allows buyers to customize the color of the front, back, and accents for the phone. At launch it will only be available for the AT&T model, but Motorola is planning to expand availability to other carriers later in the year. Check out the video for the system below.

Verizon has already confirmed that they're getting access to Moto Maker, via a tweet from the official Verizon News account.

The Moto X will be available from all of the major American carriers later this summer, but it's coming to Canada exclusively through Rogers. While one of the major selling points may be its immense customizability, the Canadian version will only ship in - you guessed it - black or white. It will be available for as little as $189.99 on select two-year plans.

The much-hyped handset is situated firmly at the high-end of the mid-range market, as it comes with a 4.7-inch 720p screen, 2GB of RAM, and Moto's custom processor (1.7GHz dual-core CPU, quad-core GPU).

After all those months of leaks and rumors, the Moto X is now a real phone that we can talk about and find fault with. Feels good, right? The device is going to be for sale through all the major US carriers, but that's not your only option. For a more Google-y experience, a Google Play Edition Moto X will be up for sale in the not too distant future.

I really like the HTC One. I also really like the Galaxy S4. And the Optimus G Pro. And that's because there are a lot of great Android smartphones out there right now, and really, none of the very best ones are actually bad (nor are any of them perfect). And if I were to ask you, our readers, what would be the first thing you could change about any of them - if it could be just one thing - a few months ago the consensus likely would have emerged as "give them stock Android."

Well, we're two out of three - the HTC One and Galaxy S4 are both available in stock Android iterations, aka Google Play Editions, and are yours for the buying (if you're in the United States - admittedly a major caveat).

If you're on The Now Network and looking for a new phone, you'd be hard-pressed to find one better than the Galaxy S4 (with one exception, depending on your personal preference). And in keeping with their tradition of rock-bottom prices at surprisingly fast intervals, Amazon Wireless is now offering the 16GB model for just $99.99 on-contract, to both new customers and existing subscribers adding a line.

Activation is free for new Sprint customers, as is two-day shipping (even without an Amazon Prime account).
