Just a few days ago, we saw Google expand the reach of Play Books to New Zealand and a handful of countries across Asia. Continuing its arduous march of international availability, Google today expanded Google Play Music and its All Access service to seven new countries. So, who's been added to the list of those able to jam out with Google's on-demand music streaming service/store? Here's the full list:

  • Czech Republic
  • Finland
  • Hungary
  • Liechtenstein
  • Netherlands
  • Russia
  • Switzerland

FIFA14-Thumb

We know some of you have been dying to get your hands on a mobile version of FIFA 14, and you probably hated to find out that the game was now available, just not in your country. When we first posted earlier today, this game was only out in several countries. Well, patient soccer fans, it's time to check the Play Store again. EA has taken an awkward approach to rolling out this title, but it should now be available in most countries.

Note3 Gear-Thumb

Since Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 3 earlier this month, we've heard of launch dates from Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile. Now it's Sprint's turn. The carrier will start selling the Note 3 and the Gear smartwatch on October 4 both in stores and online. It's not yet available for pre-order, but you can at least register for more information on the two devices if Sprint's your only option.

MotoX-Thumb

If you live in the US and want to get your hands on the Moto X for less than $199, be patient. The price isn't dropping just yet, and carriers are rolling out promos as they pick up the handset. The Moto X is now available on US Cellular, and they're offering one of the more sizable discounts yet. The phone will still cost $199 with a two-year contract, but if you're creating a new commitment, US Cellular will mail you a $75 MasterCard Debit Card as a "Switcher Bonus." This deal won't work for current customers who are upgrading, but it is still offered to those who are interested in adding a new line.

HTC's One, the phone that has people once again excited about the quietly brilliant Taiwanese manufacturer, went on sale around the middle of last month at AT&T, though at the time only its Glacial Silver variant was up for grabs.

Today, AT&T added the Stealth Black HTC One to its stock. For those wondering, yes, the 32GB and 64GB models are both available, for $199.99 and $299.99 respectively (with a two-year contract).

Sony's Xperia Tablet Z, the tablet first announced for Japan about three months ago, and spotted again at MWC, is finally up for pre-order for those customers awaiting the device's US launch.

When we saw the Tablet Z in person at Mobile World Congress, its super thin, super light water/dust-resistant frame impressed. Its 1920x1200 10.1" display, S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM and promised Android 4.2 base also sounded good on paper, but we concluded it could still be held back by two things: a 6000mAh battery, and a $500 price point for the 16GB model.

We first saw the Sony Xperia ZL back in January, and although its brother, the Xperia Z, has been available in Europe for a while now, it's taken a little bit longer for the ZL to reach American shores.

The good news is that you can now pre-order the Xperia ZL directly from Sony's website. The bad news is that it will put you back $759.99 or $719.99, depending on the model that you choose (HSPA+ or LTE).

Rumblings of delays aside, we've been waiting to hear more concrete information about the arrival of the new HTC One. Well, today we got something closer to solid facts. According to the company itself, the new flagship phone should launch in the UK, Germany, and Taiwan next week. Dates may vary by local carriers, but it won't be too long of a wait.

As for the rest of the world, more countries in Europe, as well as the North American and Asia-Pacific regions should see the handset land 'before the end of April.' No specific dates are given, nor any carrier information, but we already know that in the U.S.

Update: Oops! Looks like Google classified this one as dead just a bit too early – it's back for a thirtieth go in the Play Store. If you want one, you should probably buy it now before they really do disappear forever.

Shortly after slimming down the Play Store's selection of Nexus 7 cases, it looks like Google has brought out the axe again, this time aiming it at the Nexus 4 Bumper.
