[Weekend Poll] Are QWERTY Slider Smartphones Finally Dead?

With no DROID 5 in sight for an unveiling at next week's Verizon festivities, it seems the writing is on the wall for the form-factor that basically got Android off the ground: the QWERTY slider phone.

It's been nearly 4 years since the original DROID and HTC G1 debuted, two phones that really carried the Android platform in those early, uncertain days. It seemed, perhaps, that the trend the Sidekick (aka Hiptop) started in 2002 might continue on into the true smartphone era, side-by-side with the increasingly popular touchscreen slab (which at that point really just meant the iPhone).

Samsung Ditches Media And Music Hubs, Replaces Them With The Samsung Hub (Now In The Play Store)

If you've owned a Samsung device in recent years, then you're likely at least somewhat familiar with the Media and Music hubs, Samsung's exclusive music and movie stores. There's a good chance that you may have never used either of the pair, but if you have, Samsung is making some changes that are essentially going to cannibalize both apps for the Samsung Hub, which consolidates all of Samsung's current stores into one app.

AOKP Finally Releases Jelly Bean 4.2 Milestone 2, Complete With SwipePad-like Ribbon Feature, New Devices, And More

It's been quite some time since we heard major release information from the ROM developers at the Android Open Kang Project, or as the cool kids call them, AOKP.

First Motorola X Press Images Hit The Web [Updated: White And Profile]

The leakiest and one of the most mysterious phones in recent history just got a little less mysterious as @evleaks dropped the first official press renders onto our sleepy heads late Friday night. The OS is close to stock (it's Android 4.2.2 for now, but we fully expect 4.3 soon after its release), the cameras are where they're supposed to be, the on-screen buttons make us happy, and overall, it's not such a bad-looker for a mid-spec, affordable device.

CyanogenMod Teases Something Very Mysterious - "A New Challenger Appears, A New Nemesis Appears"

A mysterious video that starts with "Nothing can be perfect, things can be better" was just posted by the CyanogenMod team on YouTube. The 31-second animation teases... something.

What could it be? A CyanogenMod phone? Upcoming Android 4.3 support (I really doubt this is what the video is about)? Something else completely mind-blowing or ultimately disappointingly overhyped? One of the frames shows the word "FREE" on a lockscreen - that can't be a coincidence.

Low-End LG Enact Tipped For Verizon, Sports Physical Buttons (Including Menu) And Meh Specs

Sometimes we're completely blown away by what carriers have coming down the pike. This is not one of those times.

Looks like Verizon is once again teaming up with LG for a low-end device, which @evleaks claims will be called the Enact, and has a model number of VS890. There is literally nothing remarkable about this phone, save for the fact that LG decided to give the Gingerbread days a nod and resurrect the physical menu button:
