Did You Miss Motorola's Moto G, Moto X Play, And Moto X Style Reveal Video? Watch It In Full Here

...

The Moto X Play Is Motorola's Cheaper, Longer-Lasting Flagship: 5.5" 1080p Screen, 21MP Camera, 3630mAh Battery... But No US Release In Sight

The Moto X Style isn't the only new flagship that Motorola revealed at its press conference this morning. The new Moto X Play is basically a "Maxx" version of the phone, with a smaller 1080p screen, but a gigantic 3630mAh battery (plus Turbo charging) for what Motorola calls "48 hours of mixed use." The price will reflect the slightly lower specs, since Motorola claims that this phone will be "$300-400 cheaper" than flagship phones from the competition.

AT&T Will Sell The LG G Pad F 8.0, Complete With Stylus And Full-Sized USB Port, Starting On May 29th

"F" is kind of an awkward name for a line of products. In the rankings of glamorous Latin letters which I just made up in my head, it sits somewhere between Q (just an O that's trying too hard) and P (even more lopsided, and it doesn't get the stability of the bipedal R). But whatever the reason, LG decided it was a really apt way to distinguish some one-off American carrier tablets from its regular G series. Meet AT&T's LG G Pad F 8.0. Eff, that's awkward.

The tablet will go on sale starting May 29th for $149.99 with a two-year contract, or $12.50 a month on the interest-free installment plan, which comes out to $250 after twenty months.

LTE Versions Of Samsung's Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 And Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 Land On AT&T June 6th

Of the Big Four American carriers, AT&T has the best selection of Android tablets available... which, admittedly, isn't saying much. Today their shallow ranks get bolstered by two new Samsung tablets, one in the original Galaxy Tab line (which is now the de facto budget option) and one in the new Pro series. The Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 and the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 will be available on the carrier starting this Friday, June 6th.

The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is currently the biggest and baddest product in Samsung's entire mobile lineup. As the name implies, it's a 12.2-inch tablet with Sammy's usual Note accoutrements, including a screen with a Wacom digitizer and an included S-Pen stylus.

[CES 2014] Sony Announces The 5" Xperia Z1s For T-Mobile And The 4.3" Xperia Z1 Compact

Sony has two new phones to announce here at CES in Las Vegas: one specifically for the purple people over at T-Mobile, and one meant to appease users who want a premium phone without the bulk. The Xperia Z1s is T-Mobile's branded variant of the slightly older Xperia Z1. Aside from the extra letter and doubled storage, it's identical to Sony's international flagship. The Xperia Z1 Compact is a smaller 4.3" phone that keeps most of the premium features.

There's not much to say about the Z1s - it's the Z1 for T-Mobile, with T-Mo's LTE bands. You still get the 5" 1080p LCD screen, the Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, the same customized build of Android 4.3, and a bombastic 20.7MP rear camera.

Motorola Announces The Moto G: A Competitive Mid-Range Phone For $179 Off-Contract, Coming To The US In January

The words "no compromise" and "mid-range" would seem to be mutually exclusive, but Motorola would like you to think otherwise. The company announced the Moto G in a live event, promoting a cheaper and slightly lower-spec version of the flagship Moto X. This phone is Motorola's wide-ranging model, the first that's been introduced since the X, and it's intended to be cheap enough to be purchased without a contract.

We could tell you all the specs and technical details, but the most important factor in the Moto G is the price. The Moto G starts at just $179 for the 8GB model and $199 for the 16GB model.

Samsung's 7-Inch Galaxy Tab 3 Kids Goes On Sale November 10th For $229.99

Kids these days have it so easy. When I was a rugrat me and my sister shared a 100Mhz Windows 95 machine that Dad scrounged out of spare parts, and we were happy to have it.

This ruggedized tablet with kid-specific software goes on sale on November 10th at the usual retailers, plus Toys 'R' Us, for $229.99.

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.

Moto X Is Finally Official: $199 On-Contract, Available On All Major Carriers, Customization Is Only For AT&T

Well, it's finally here, folks: the Moto X just broke cover from a press embargo, and we can get down to the nitty-gritty of the real device. As heavily leaked, it's not the showstopping device that you might expect as Motorola's flagship: with a 4.7-inch, 720p screen and Moto's custom X8 chip (1.7Ghz dual-core CPU, quad-core GPU) it falls on the high end of the mid-range. But that's what the company is aiming for: a phone with as wide a release as possible.

The hardware itself is quite similar to the DROID Ultra, with the X8 system-on-a-chip, 2GB of RAM, and a slightly smaller screen.

LG Announces New York Event May 1 – Get Ready For The Optimus G Pro In The US

If Samsung makes a UI overlay for Android, LG will make a UI overlay for Android. If Samsung starts making bigger phones, LG will start making bigger phones. And if Samsung announces its new flagship device at a big New York City event, you can bet LG is going to announce its new flagship device at a big New York City event. Yes, the time has come for LG to (almost certainly) reveal the Optimus G Pro for US carriers.

The LG Optimus G Pro is very similar to the Note II in many respects. It has a 5.5-inch 1080p screen, big honking 3140mAh battery, and a quad-core Snapdragon ARM chip.
