More details have started pouring in regarding the newly announced LG G Flex 2's availability. Yesterday, Sprint, AT&T, and U.S Cellular confirmed that they would be carrying the phone, with Sprint getting the "Volcano Red" color exclusive. But if you live on the other side of the pond and you're itching to get that curvy bendy phone in your hands, you should know that it will be a Vodafone exclusive for the first 6 weeks of its launch in the UK. As for the plans,

Following LG’s announcement on the launch of the New LG G Flex 2, I just wanted to let you know that it’s exclusively available on the Vodafone network for 6 weeks from launch.

The Razer Serval Is An $80 Controller For Android And Android TV Games, And It Comes With A Detachable Phone Clip

Not content with making a stylish Android set-top box, Razer is also planning on attacking the Android gaming market on its home turf. The Serval is a full-sized, console-style Bluetooth game controller that's compatible with both Razer's Forge TV and direct connection with Android phones and tablets. It's far from the first controller made with Android in mind, but it's the first to come from perhaps the most high-profile game peripheral company out there, and is thus worthy of examination.

In terms of configuration, the Serval is essentially a green-tinted copy of the Xbox 360 controller, which has become more or less the standard for wide-ranging video game input.

Razer's Forge TV Is The Gamer's Android TV Box, Complete With Mouse And Keyboard Support And SHIELD-Style PC Game Streaming

We've known that Razer was working on its own branded version of an Android TV set-top box for more than half a year, but at CES 2015 the well-known gaming peripheral company has given the gadget its coming out party. The Razer Forge TV hopes to be the go-to choice for gamers, with support for up to four simultaneous players, keyboard and mouse input, and (eventually) streaming high-end games from a local gaming PC.

The Forge TV box itself is a nondescript slab that looks something like a blacked-out version of a Mac Mini with Razer's triple snake logo on top.

Gameloft Releases N.O.V.A. 3 Freedom Edition, A Free Version Of N.O.V.A. 3 With Ads And No In-App Purchases

Gameloft has a number of "top-tier" properties like Modern Combat and Asphalt, but it's been a while since N.O.V.A. got any love. That's Gameloft's totally-not-a-ripoff-of-Crysis sci-fi shooter. Well, there's a new version of N.O.V.A., but it's mostly the same as the last one. This is N.O.V.A. 3 Freedom Edition. It's the same game, but it costs nothing to download and has no in-app purchases. The catch is that N.O.V.A. 3 Freedom Edition has ads.

The ZTE Spro 2 Is An Android-Powered Smart Projector With Google Play Access, An LTE Hotspot, And Too Few Vowels In Its Name

When a regular projector simply won't do at your next business meeting, there's the ZTE Spro 2. This mini projector has a touchscreen and runs Android with full access to the Play Store. It's probably a really slick way to project slides on the wall, but I feel like someone unnecessarily dropped some vowels from the name (or maybe a hyphen or something).

[Update: 5.0.2, Nexus 6 Added] First CyanogenMod 12 Nightlies, Built On Lollipop 5.0.2, Rolling Out To Select Devices

We have been wondering for a while when we'd see Lollipop-based builds from CyanogenMod, and now is that time. For this first round of nightlies, 31 devices will be supported with many more to come in the near future. CyanogenMod 11, based on KitKat, will now be on a weekly update schedule until its M13 release, after which development will be frozen. While some bugs are to be expected, all supported devices should have core functions working smoothly right away.

Livescribe 3 Smartpen Will Soon Have Android Support, Having Handwritten Notes On Your Device Could Get A Lot Easier

Ever wanted to take handwritten notes, but didn't want to write on a digital screen? Maybe you just don't want a Samsung device, the primary Android manufacturer to offer active digitizers (better known as the "S Pen" in their marketing materials). Livescribe's smartpens have, up to now, been just a nearly perfect solution for many. You can write on real paper* and have your notes rather effortlessly synced to select digital destinations. It is suddenly looking even better, though, because long-awaited Android support is on the way.

The Sony SmartWatch 3 Will Be Available In A Swanky Stainless Steel Option In February

While Sony's initial Android Wear offering, the SmartWatch 3, is perfectly fine from a technical point of view, one of the words we heard from commenters over and over again was "ugly." Even Ryan Whitwam could only call it "acceptable" in his review. Sony's hoping to fix the lackluster looks of the SmartWatch 3 with a new version clad in a stainless steel body and watch strap. And boy, it's amazing what a little metal can do.

White the guts of the steel SmartWatch 3 remain identical to its silicone-clad predecessor, the new steel housing is undeniably slick. It makes the watch look like, well, a watch, and a particularly stylish one at that, accentuating instead of hiding the square screen.

Sony Introduces The Brand New Walkman NW-ZX2 128GB Music Player For $1200, Powered By Android... 4.2

Look, we're not in the audiophile business. We don't cover music products that don't feature Android in some way, shape, or form. And running bleeding-edge software is not a prerequisite for quality sound. But seriously, Sony, if you're going to charge twelve hundred dollars for a device that runs Android, could you not load it with an OS build that's over two years old? Alas, such is the case with the Walkman NW-ZX2 announced at CES.

The NW-ZX2 is not a phone. It's more of a competitor to the iPod Touch, a device focused almost entirely on portable music that runs Android more as a means to an end than anything else.

IK Multimedia Announces The iRig 2, Finally Compatible With Most Android Devices

IK Multimedia took the first step in bringing its music creation tools to Android with its iRig HD-A announcement back in November, but that device was compatible with the Samsung Note 4 and Note 4 Edge only. Today, it's changing the game in a major way, as it just announced the iRig 2, which brings full Android compatibility to the table.

The iRig 2 brings a lot more to the table than just Android compatibility, as well - like a new 1/4" amplifier output, effectively turning the mobile device into a full pedalboard of sorts (maybe that's a bit of a stretch, but you get the idea).
