If you've wanted a phablet in white, or just any smartphone larger than 5 inches, we would forgive you for thinking that the Galaxy Note II was the only option out there - or, if you've been keeping up, the recently-released Galaxy Mega. But here's the thing, there are other massive phones available, such as the LG Optimus G Pro, and as of today, it's also available in white.

AT&T just launched a large amount of phones all at once, but none are so large as Samsung's Galaxy Mega 6.3. This relatively low-priced alternative to the Galaxy Note and Optimus G Pro is the largest phone in AT&T's lineup, and at the moment, also the largest carrier phone anywhere in America. The device is available now at $149.99 on-contract or $479.99 unsubsidized.

The Mega 6.3 naturally has a 6.3-inch display, but it's an LCD panel instead of Samsung's usual AMOLED, and the resolution is a mere 1280x720.

As expected, the long-rumored Moto X has debuted on AT&T for $199.99 on a two-year contract. The device is only available in white and black at this moment – Moto Maker is still not live, but it should be soon. This price is for the 16GB edition of the phone. No sign of the 32GB version yet.

As promised, the HTC One Mini is now available from AT&T for $99.99 with a two-year contract, $349.99 for one year, or $429.99 month-to-month.

The mini-fied HTC One, for those who may have forgotten, is a 4.3" device with a 720p resolution (that's ~340ppi), an 1800mAh battery, Snapdragon 400 dual-core processor at 1.4GHz, 16GB built-in storage, and 1GB of RAM. Though its screen and specs are downsized, the phone still carries some of the hardware - including front facing speakers and Ultrapixel camera - that made the HTC One a hit.

Pandora's Android client gets a small update today. The first new feature is something that everyone can use: a sleep timer. In the main station view, tap the Menu icon to find the new "Sleep timer" entry. Tap it, then choose between 15, 30, or 60 minutes. After the set time Pandora will cut off, letting you drift into the arms of Morpheus without killing your battery.

The developers have also added support for the NissanConnect system, which allows the app to be controlled with the dash-mounted touchscreen or media buttons on some late-model Nissan vehicles.

Words are awesome. For writers they're meat and drink, bread and butter, and everything else that goes on the dinner table. But even writers run into words we've never seen before, and at times like that Google Search is an awesome tool for expanding my vocabulary. Google Search just got a little better, because the definition cards have been updated to include word origins and their usage over time.

The origins aren't just a simple footnote, either, such as "Germanic" or "Latin." No, we're talking full trees of information, with base words, root words, prefixes, suffixes, alternate forms, transliterations, and all kinds of other goodies.

Google has just posted updated factory images and driver binaries for the Nexus 7 (2013 and 2012), Nexus 4, Nexus 10, and Galaxy Nexus (yakju / takju variants) based on the new Android 4.3 bugfix builds JWR66Y and JSS15Q (2013 Nexus 7 only). The new builds follow OTA updates that have been rolling out over the last couple of days.

That new Nexus 7 update slowly rolling out across the Google-sphere does more than patch the touchscreen issues. A Googler has confirmed that JSS15Q also fixes the GPS bug that users began reporting shortly after the device launched.

The bug was causing the 2013 Nexus 7 to lose its GPS lock after prolonged use. Switching between multiple GPS-enabled apps (which is, you know, a lot of them) would accelerate the breakdown.

Just because you use Facebook, that doesn't mean you have a Facebook page. We all have profiles, but pages are typically reserved for organizations, artists, or products. That said, anyone can create a Facebook page. Yes, anyone They're practically giving them away. And while you're creating a page of your own, check out the Facebook Pages Manager app, which was updated recently with a number of nice features that make managing that new page a bit easier.
