Sometimes you can look at a game and tell exactly what it's going to be about. Okay, most of the time you can look at a game and tell what it's going to be about. But every now and then a title comes along that really just wants to be different. Kapsula is a cross between a puzzle and racing game set in a futuristic world of Soviet space colonies filled with clones.
In case you were getting bored with the already reasonable selection of official Nexus 5 accessories on the Play Store, Google has just slipped in a new series of Google-branded snap cases for the phone, priced at $29.99 and coming in Black, Aqua, Silver, White, and Clear variants.
The cases look pretty sleek, wrapping around the sides and back of the device, adding a Google logo to the back, and leaving the top and bottom edges open.
It seems that even when our phones are covered in metal and marketed as the pinnacle of mobile hardware design, we can't get away from manufacturers who want to make them pink. HTC apparently thinks there are at least a few consumers who want a blush-colored One M8, because Evleaks just posted a promotional shot of said phone in pink. Every millimeter of the M8's aluminum shell is covered in the rosy hue.
So the Google Nexus Twitter account was doing some impromptu support for a user and included a screenshot. How helpful! Well, more helpful than they intended it to be. The screenshot shows a slightly tweaked dialer app with a blue action bar. First they took our #33b5e5, now they're coming after the gray. Actually, I think I'm okay with that.
Update: One commenter noticed that the new colors of the DROID MAXX have 16GB of storage, not 32GB like the original matte version. For shame, Verizon/Moto, especially since the MAXX has no microSD card slot. Thanks, Jason Stanton!
When Verizon launched the latest generation of Motorola DROID phones back in August, the long-lasting DROID MAXX was only offered in a matte black color. It seems a little belated, but as of today Verizon is selling the Moto flagship in two new color options: glossy red, and matte black with new silver trim on the speaker grille, Motorola badge, power button, and volume rocker.
Warning: if you just woke up (howdy, West Coast readers) you might want to wait a minute or two before hitting "play" on that video. It has 300% of your daily recommended amount of color. Avoid - Sensory Overload is a typical endless runner, at least if you only look at its core elements; you fly around trying not to hit stuff. But that's a pretty inadequate way of describing the experience.
White and black. Black and white. Every new flagship phone seems to offer these choices before anything else - you never get, for example, a phone launching exclusively in neon green. Today Samsung is officially expanding its offering of Galaxy Note 3 colors to bring the line a little bit of high-class luster. You'll soon be able to purchase the Note 3 in Rose Gold White, Rose Gold Black, and Merlot Red colors.
Maybe the black slabs of glass and Kevlar that are Verizon's 2013 DROID lineup aren't doing it for you. If that's the case (and you haven't already bought a customized Moto X), you can now pick up either the svelte DROID Ultra or the pint-sized DROID Mini in shades of white. The capacious DROID Maxx, surprisingly, is still only offered in black.
Unlike some of the early leaks of the white Ultra model, this one seems to be white all over, as opposed to white on the glass panel with a black body.
Motorola surprised us earlier this week with an early launch of the US version of their impressive Moto G budget phone. If you ordered one and want a little protection and/or flair for your new gadget, the accessories section of Motorola's official store has been expanded with shells (backplates) and flip shells for the Moto G. Like the phone itself, they'll ship out on December 2nd.
The shells pop on and off of the back of the Moto G, not unlike the faceplates that were sold for old Nokia candybar phones.
