Sometimes, we don't want complex games. Sometimes, adding new rules or features to existing genres is a bit overwhelming. Pix'n Love Rush is, in contrast to many games that come out these days, very simple. You're in a side-scrolling platformer world and your goal is to run around collecting things sans dying. Simple enough, right? The game has a colorful retro aesthetic and easy gameplay.
The game has 4 play modes that offer different challenges, but the general idea remains the same.
These days, you're not anybody if you don't have an app. Now, Lowe's is somebody. The home improvement warehouse has launched a mobile app that allows you to search for store locations, items, read reviews on products, manage your Lowe's card, and even have some products shipped to you.
The app is packed with all the bells and whistles you'd expect from a retail app, including a barcode scanner and the ability to check inventory at the stores nearest you.
Want to hear more about the EVO 4G LTE? Good! Because we have a release date for you! And if you don't like that one, we have another one. According to Wirefly's pre-order FAQ page, this slick beast will be unleashed on May 18th. Sprint's own pre-order confirmations seem to lend some credence to this idea, stating that pre-order will begin to ship as early as May 15th.
Sprint's promotional email also supports this, stating that the pre-order offer ends May 17th, which would make sense if the next day is launch day.
An eager, eagle-eyed XDA member spotted a Google ad while searching for "xperia ion" that may be showing AT&T's hand concerning the release date of said device. One of a few ads that appear when searching for the device states that the Xperia Ion is "Coming Exclusively to AT&T in June." Well, that narrows it down a bit!
The ad doesn't give a specific date, but it does narrow down the date range significantly.
Back in early April, Toshiba announced a trio of new tablets set to launch under the Excite line: 7.7, 10.1, and 13.3-inch models. The first of the bunch, the 10.1-inch Excite 10, is now available in its 16GB and 32GB variants, both on Amazon and directly from Toshiba for $450 and $520 respectively. If that's just not enough storage for all you digital hoarders, though, you can pre-order the 64GB version for $650.
By now, the One X and Galaxy S III fanboys have set up shop and are ready to wage war. If you're in the One X camp, but you prefer Sprint to AT&T, the EVO 4G LTE is what you're after. Pre-orders have gone live today. Wirefly, however, has a special deal going on today: $50 off the normal $200 price tag.
If you're looking to jump ship to Sprint, or if you're an existing customer at the end of your contract, you qualify for the discount.
Historically, Best Buy hasn't been the most, shall we say, reliable company when it comes to... well, anything. The most recent display of typographical error on Best Buy's part comes from the pre-order page for the upcoming HTC EVO LTE. Looks like Best Buy thinks it's the phone of the year - it has the off-contract price listed as $100k. Ha!
While the $100k price tag may indeed be a humorous error, there is a silver lining: if you actually pre-order the phone from BB, you get a $50 gift card upon activation.
We already knew that Sprint's HTC One X-inspired EVO 4G LTE would be available for preorder on May 7th, but Sprint recently issued a friendly reminder to its customers, publishing a live countdown page which ends tomorrow morning at 6am PST and promises viewers a chance to "call dibs" on the latest addition to the carrier's "most adored family of smartphones." Starting tomorrow, the EVO 4G LTE can be preordered for $199 with a new two-year agreement or eligible upgrade.
For everyone wanting to get a piece of new HTC tech, it looks like the littlest brother of the HTC One family, the One V, will be making its way stateside "later this summer."
For the uninitiated, the One V is the budget device from the One Series, packing some rather meager specs:
3.7-inch 480x800 display
1GHz single-core processor
4GB built-in storage
5MP F/2.0 rear shooter
Android 4.0 with Sense 4
While it's definitely no powerhouse on paper, it does bring some unique features to the world of budget devices, like Ice Cream Sandwich, the now less-intrusive Sense 4, and HTC's impressive new camera.
