HTC Announces Mid-Range Desire 500 For The UK: 4.3", 1.2Ghz Quad-Core, Removable Battery, And MicroSD

HTC hasn't abandoned the market for small phones, as shown by their One Mini at a (relatively) tiny 4.3 inches. But that's still on the premium side, and those who want both a small size and a small price need some love too. Enter the Desire 500, a 4.3" phone with a mixture of features from this generation of HTC hardware and the last one. It's currently slated for release in the UK sometime in August, but HTC has been mum on a price and wider release details so far.

AT&T To Android Users: We Don't Support Unlocked Bootloaders, So Stop Asking Us About Every Phone

In preparation for reporting on the general state of the Moto X bootloader, we reached out to AT&T for an official statement on the matter. We know that many potential buyers want to know whether they can fully modify their phones, especially after the HTC One X and Galaxy S4 were denied unlockable bootloaders on the carrier. Here's what they said in reply:

To ensure a safe and consistent experience on your wireless device, we do not support unlocked bootloaders.

Motorola Clarifies The Moto X Bootloader Situation: Unlockable On Most Carriers, Developer Editions For AT&T And Verizon

A lot of you have been waiting to hear about the status of the bootloader in the Moto X - after all, if this is Motorola's new standard, how do they intend to go forward? The answer is a bit anti-climactic: according to this developer-focused page on the Motorola website, the Moto X for Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Rogers in Canada will be unlockable, along with "two models just for developers."

What are these two models?

HTC Releases Android 4.3 Kernel Source And Framework Files For One Google Play Edition, OTA Update To 4.3 Can't Be Far Off

While we haven't heard much on the Android 4.3 update news front for the One or Galaxy S4 GPE other than "soon," it sounds like soon really may mean soon. HTC just released the Android 4.3-based kernel source and framework files for the One GPE on HTCdev.

Moto X Will Not Be Sold Outside Of The Americas, Cheaper Versions To Be Made As Company Focuses On "Very Few Devices"

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.

OCD Sufferers, Rejoice: Google Calendar For Android App Now Syncs Notification Dismissals Across Devices

A small but very much helpful update was announced for the Google Calendar app today: sync of notification dismissals across multiple devices. And yes, this is a staged rollout, so you will have to wait patiently for the updated app to actually become available. Hopefully it won't take long.

That's really the only change, aside from the standard bug fixes. This new cross-device sync will not dismiss notifications for skinned calendar apps on devices like the Galaxy S4 or HTC One, of course, so you may just want to disable notifications for such apps and use Google Calendar exclusively at this point, because this is too convenient a feature to pass up.

Jekyll And Holo: A Few Weeks With The HTC One Google Play Edition And Its Sense-Infused Counterpart

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).

[New App] Chainfire Releases Alpha Version Of GeoLog, A GPS Logging App That Knows When Not To Log

Chainfire has been a busy, busy developer. Just a few days ago he released the first working root app for Android 4.3, and now he's sharing an early alpha of his new location tracking project, GeoLog. It's similar to other coordinate logging applications, but takes full advantage of Google's new Fused Location Provider and Activity Recognition APIs (check out Google's demonstration at I/O) to determine how precisely it should be tracking your position, and if it should even be actively logging at all.
