Nexpaq Modular Phone Case More Than Triples Kickstarter Goal, Seems Marginally More Plausible Than A Modular Phone

There have been a few Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns lately that are pushing the idea of a modular phone similar to Google's Project Ara. These are devices designed by small teams of people without the engineering resources of Google, and if you'll forgive my pessimism, they sound like nonsense. Nexpaq is a somewhat more modest take on the modular phone. The modules plug into the Nexpaq case and you simply drop in your existing phone.

Nexus 6 Stand Cases By Case Mate Show Up In The Play Store, Listed As 'Coming Soon'

It's common for Google to drop a few accessories in the Play Store each time a new Nexus comes out, but they often don't ship until at least a few weeks after the device itself. Maybe by the time you get your hands on a Nexus 6 the newly listed cases (by Case Mate) will be shipping. The folio and clear case for Motorola's first Nexus are in the Play Store, but you can't order yet. Actually, they're both kind of ugly and expensive, so maybe you don't want to.

3D-Printed Moto 360 Bumper Cases Now Available On Shapeways For $8 - Wait, What?

Most watches don't have much in the way of accessories beyond straps and winders. But then most watches don't hold a ton of electronic guts, and most watches aren't owned by gadget fans with an obsessive need to keep their toys in pristine condition. To fill that need, a merchant on the 3D printing marketplace Shapeways is selling custom-made bumper cases for the Moto 360. Yeah, really.

"Raelx" is offering the $8 cases in a variety of colors and styles. You can get a shorter one that covers only the circular edge of the Moto 360, leaving a thin band of metal visible around the screen, or a taller one that covers everything except the "flat tire" screen cutout.

The Dot View Case For The One M8 Is In HTC's Store For $50, Not Available For Purchase Yet

The Dot View case is HTC's answer to the various windowed cases from Samsung and LG, and you have to give them points for creativity. The front cover is punched with holes - just big enough to see through, not enough to expose the screen to damage. (We hope.) It will cost $49.99, and it's already on the HTC store in five different colors, though you can't buy one yet.

The Lite-Brite style case allows the phone to show a dot matrix-style display for different functions like the time, weather, and phone calls. The M8's gesture recognition should allow users to interact with apps, at least enough to answer or reject calls and similar.

Samsung Appears To Have Started Blocking Third-Party Accessories Starting With KitKat On The Note 3, But There Is A Root Solution [Update: Samsung Responds]

We heard rumors a number of months ago that Samsung was mulling a plan to begin restricting the functionality of uncertified accessories like cases and chargers on its devices. It seems that the company has started doing just that with the Android 4.4.2 update for the Note 3. Users who have updated are reporting that third-party S-View cases, like the one sold by Spigen, are no longer working.

Samsung includes a small identification chip in the official S-View case that allows it to work properly with the phone. Of course, the Spigen case is still a case, but it doesn't do any of the special stuff with the screen window that users expect.

The family of accessories for the Galaxy S4 has a new arrival. Hot on the heels of Samsung's launch of a similar product for the Galaxy Note 3, the wireless charging S-View cover for the Galaxy S4 is now available. Before now, if you wanted to charge your phone wirelessly, you'd have to take the cover off and replace it with a wireless charging back.
