[Deal Alert] Get The LG G Watch R For $210 From T-Mobile (That's $90 Off)

The LG G Watch R, which David thinks is the best Android Wear has to offer for now, is an interesting device - it's an Android Wear device that has a circular screen, one that's actually a circle, escaping the "flat tire" design choice Motorola had to make for the Moto 360. But it also has a big funky angled bezel with numbers on it (like some real watches). Still, it's a solid device for the burgeoning category, with a 1.3" POLED display and 410mAh battery.

[Update: Motorola Responds] AT&T Stores Allegedly Being Directed To Return All Nexus 6 Stock Because Of Pretty Bad Software Glitch

Update: Motorola has responded, claiming the blame lies with them for the situation - they mailed a number of Nexus 6s with incorrect firmware that would cause the phone to fail to start up properly. Pre-order customers are those most likely to be affected, and those persons will have an opportunity to replace their devices. Here's the full statement:

Verizon Updates LG G Vista With A Couple UI Tweaks In Software Version VS88011B

The LG G Vista is a great phone for people who want an LG G3 but don't have G3 money at the moment—it offers a 5.7-inch screen and a similar form-factor (such as those rear-facing power and volume buttons), but it's powered by a weaker 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and just 8GB of internal memory (fortunately supplemented by a microSD card slot). Verizon Wireless has pushed out an over-the-air update that hits users with a few UI tweaks.

AT&T's Nexus 6 Is SIM-Locked, Checks Mobile Hotspot Subscription Status For Tethering, And Has The Carrier's Ringtones

After last night's news that the AT&T-sold Nexus 6 has the carrier's logo on the back of the device as well as the boot screen, you just knew there was more to come, right? Well, that time is upon us. It appears that the carrier's Nexus 6 variant is SIM-locked, won't let you tether without verifying your subscription status, and has AT&T's suite of ringtones as well.

It should be noted that none of these things mean that AT&T has a different ROM than any other Nexus 6 - quite the contrary, in fact.

Sprint Galaxy S5 Android 4.4.4 OTA Appears To Actually Really Be Rolling Out This Time

While Verizon rather weirdly got this OTA well before any of the other major carriers over 2 months ago, Sprint is finally officially announcing that its Galaxy S5 will be receiving the update to Android 4.4.4 starting today.

Seven weeks ago, Samsung jumped the gun and announced that the Sprint version would be getting 4.4.4, and its own update site further alleged that the OTA had gone live way back at the end of September.

AT&T Galaxy Note 3 Getting Android 4.4.4 OTA, Adds Knox 2.0, Kids Mode, Side Sync 3.0, Updated Bloatware

If you're the owner of a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for AT&T, you should be getting your Android 4.4.4 OTA update starting today. This will bring you up from Android 4.4.2, and Samsung has packed in a few extras with this 459MB OTA, as well. Namely: Kid mode, SideSync 3.0, Knox 2.0, virtual tour mode in the camera app, and some updated AT&T bloatware.

The Uber app has been added to the list of things-AT&T-won't-let-you-uninstall, and I imagine there are a boatload of bug-fixes and the standard exploit patches you would expect in an OTA of this magnitude.
