Android 4.4.4 OTA Is Rolling Out For The Verizon Moto X And Moto G

It's never a bad thing when phones get the latest version of Android software, and Motorola seems committed to sending it to their devices sooner rather than later. After the usual Verizon soak test a couple of weeks ago, the updated ROMs are ready and apparently flying out to both the high-end Moto X and Verizon's customized CDMA Moto G. If you don't see the update alert in your notification bar, you should sometime over the next few days.

T-Mobile Announces Temporarily Discounted Family Plan Providing 10GB Of LTE Data Per Month For $100 Starting July 30th

In an angsty blog post today eviscerating the prices AT&T and other carriers charge for family plans, T-Mobile CEO John Legere announced that his company was going to provide customers with even more bang for their buck. From July 30th through September, the carrier will offer a family of four up to 10GB of data for $100. For people who sign up during this time, these rates will last until 2016.

T-Mobile generally provides each line with 1GB of data at that price, but this plan will bump that up to 2.5GB, making this is a discount somewhere in the ballpark of $30 a month (T-Mobile's site doesn't yet allow customers to sign up for 2.5GB of data a line, instead jumping from 1GB to 3GB, making the closest equivalent I can work out 3GB + 3GB + 3GB + 1GB for a total of $130 a month).

Verizon Will Begin To Use Network Optimization (Throttling) For Heavy Unlimited LTE Users Starting In October

It's impossible for new customers to buy unlimited mobile data from Verizon. But this wasn't always the case: back in the glory days of, uh, 2010 and earlier, Verizon Wireless was still offering true unlimited data for as little as $30 a month. It's been increasingly hard for users who want to keep their unlimited data to do so: since late 2012, they haven't been able to buy a new subsidized phone without switching over to a plan with a data cap, and the "grandfathered" unlimited data customers who download the most are already subject to "network optimization" when using Verizon's 3G network.

Amazon Fire Phone Now Ready For Purchase From Amazon And AT&T, Starts At $199.99 With A Two-Year Contract

The Amazon Fire phone is interesting for a number of reasons. It's the company's first attempt at a smartphone. It crams Fire OS into a smaller form factor than it's had to accommodate before. It has five - yes, five - front-facing cameras, four of which serve as the backbone for what Amazon calls Dynamic Perspective. One thing the phone is not interesting for, however, is being a good deal (more on that below).

US Cellular Announces Android 4.4.2 OTA Software Update For Its Galaxy Note II (R950VXUCNE2)

Update, 7-25-14: It looks like this over-the-air update was delayed for some reason. Samsung says it's coming in now.

--

KitKat is making its way to the Galaxy Note II. We've seen it come to Sprint, and just yesterday it started rolling out to Verizon's version of the handset. Now US Cellular has updated the support page for its Note II to say that KitKat is on its way.

Verizon Formally Launches The HTC One Remix ($50 On Contract) And Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 ($360 On Contract)

Big Red is welcoming two new devices to its stable today: HTC's mid-range One Mini 2 One Remix, and Samsung's 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 4. Both are available on the Verizon website right now, and should be in retail stores today or soon thereafter. The One Remix costs $49.99 on-contract (half of what we expected), or $449.99 without the commitment, which actually isn't bad as far as Verizon phones go.

Verizon HTC One Remix Is Official, Coming July 24th For $99.99 On-Contract

Gigantic Verizon logo on the back? Check. Completely unnecessary Verizon logo on the front? Double check. That's the HTC One Remix, which is essentially the One Mini 2, if Verizon followed any sort of rational naming convention. It's official now (for real this time), and it's coming July 24th for $99.99 with a new contract.

Sprint's LG G2 Gets An OTA Update With Support For LG's Knock Code Security System

One of the features LG pushed hard with the announcement of the G3 was its Knock Code screen locking feature. While the device is asleep, you can tap on the screen in predefined locations to wake it and unlock instantly. Knock Code actually debuted on the G Pro 2, but now Sprint's G2 is getting it as well.

Verizon's Moto X And Moto G Are Getting Soak Tests For KitKat 4.4.4

Motorola's sale to Lenovo doesn't seem to have dampened its resolve for speedy Android updates. After upgrading the 2013 DROID line to the latest version of KitKat earlier this week, it looks like the Moto X and the Verizon-only version of the Moto G are getting ready for the same treatment. We've been sent alerts that some users are being invited to a "soak test" for Android 4.4.4, which means that a full rollout is probably a few weeks away at most.
