If you've been hankering for a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the high price for Verizon's contract phone may be off-putting. Wirefly is offering the Verizon Note 3 for $199.99 with a new contract, but Amazon has one-upped them - they've got the same phone-contract combo for just $169.99. The price for both is $249.99 ($50 off Verizon's price) for returning customers.

You could take the view that Wirefly has a better deal here, at least if you're willing to wait.

The Kyocera Hydro Elite may not be a top-of-the-line device, but it comes with something most phones don't - water resistance. It also packs 4.3-inch display and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, making it an admirable midrange handset. Now Verizon is distributing the first OTA for the phone, and while the Android version number remains the same, this update impacts many areas of the device.

The touch screen's sensitivity has been adjusted, including the virtual keyboard, and the call screen now stays lit for over 15 seconds when active.

Everyone makes mistakes, but most of us aren't producing marketing material for giant retail chains that sell technology to the general public. That's the kind of mistake we all get to laugh about. So let's have a chuckle at today's mistaken parties.

Having trouble choosing between a Samsung phone and a Motorola one? Well, now you don't have to choose with the new Verizon Samsung Moto X by Motorola at Costco.

Hey! Remember they Droid Xyboards? No? Well, surprisingly, Verizon does. In fact, both the 8.2- and 10.1-inch versions are getting an OTA update that brings Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.2) right now. Fantastic.

So what does this mean for Xyboard owners? Some new stuff, pretty much. Like Google Now! And Chrome. And Movie Studio, according to Verizon's changelog.

See? Look at all that new stuff. Really, there aren't a lot of tangible differences between 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 aside from just knowing that you're a few versions behind.

Smartphone theft is a growing problem. With more and more people carrying around a $500 gadget in their pockets, muggers and pickpockets are targeting smartphone owners for a quick and easy buck on the aftermarket. Municipalities all over the country have noted the rise in cell phone theft, and so have the manufacturers. But as CBS News reports, when Samsung built in a user-accessible kill switch to deter thieves, the CTIA and the five largest carriers in the country wanted nothing to do with it.

There are a number of themes in Android news so common that we can almost pre-write the posts. One of the near certainties has always been that Verizon is going to take forever to update its phones. Well, that's why this news is so surprising. KitKat is coming to the Moto X on Verizon first, and it's happening today.

The Moto X is one of those rare devices that skips the spec war in favor of a more elegant approach. This device has interesting voice and notification features most other devices can't touch. If you're a Verizon customer with a hankering for active notifications and touchless control, today is your lucky day. You can grab a Moto X on Big Red for zero dollars with a new contract.

Motorola has made a splash in the mobile world today, thanks to a ridiculously cheap phone that appears to be pretty good. (Shocking!) The $179 Moto G was announced in a live event this morning, with availability in Brazil and parts of Europe today, and a worldwide rollout continuing into early 2014. The company published the first ad for the Moto G on its YouTube channel.

The ad highlights the phone's customizable backplates first and foremost.

After months of AT&T exclusivity, the Moto X can now be customized on all four major American carriers. The Moto Maker website now includes models for AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint, with custom color choices for the front panel, back panel, and accents. The Moto Maker tool also includes the engraving option for the rear panel that was heavily promoted during the device's reveal.

The options are the same as the customized AT&T model: black or white front and a choice of 18 colors for the rear and 7 accent colors for the power and volume buttons and the ring around the camera.

Update: Motorola posted the following tweet earlier today, which indicates that the engraving feature is coming soon to Moto Maker. The custom engraving option was removed shortly before the device launch after being heavily promoted.

We've known since launch that the Moto Maker customization tool for the Moto X wouldn't be an AT&T exclusive forever, and it looks like that period is just about to expire.
