Leaked Verizon Roadmap Allegedly Pins Down HTC One And Moto X Launch Dates

In what PhoneArena calls a "leaked internal memo," launch dates for the Verizon versions of the HTC One and the upcoming Moto X are allegedly revealed - August 1st and August 23rd, respectively. It also adds to the growing pile of evidence that the Moto X will be coming to Verizon sans-DROID branding. Is there any reason to take stock in this rather generic looking document, though?

My gut leaning is "yes," but there are caveats to leaked internal communications like these.

[Deal By Default Alert] Verizon Drops Online Price Of Its 32GB Galaxy S4 To $249, Still The Only Place You Can Buy It

Looking for a great deal on the 32GB version of Verizon's Galaxy S4? Well, too bad - you aren't going to find one. Big Red is hoarding the supply of handsets like they're the only bar in a dry county, and it's their way or the highway. Verizon originally announced the 32GB S4 would be available for a staggering (but utterly believable) $299 on contract, $100 more than the 16GB edition, despite the fact that it was actually only $50 more off contract.

[New Game] Pacific Rim Gets A Second Official Android Game: Surprise, It's An Infinity Blade Clone

Pacific Rim comes to theaters tomorrow, and I'm already planning my route. Giant robots, Godzilla-style monsters, and a complete absence of Shia LaBeouf - what more could you want from a summer blockbuster? How about an official Android game... or two? The "full" Pacific Rim game comes from Reliance Games, a developer that tends to specialize in licensed titles. It's not to be confused with the other official game, which is more of an AR gimmick.

[New Game] Turd Birds May Just Be The Crappiest Game To Ever Hit The Play Store

Birds crap on things. It's an unavoidable fact of life. A driver who hasn't walked out to a vehicle coated in bird feces is a driver who hasn't had their license for very long. But those birds can't be allowed to get the only enjoyment out of this experience. 2K Games' Turd Birds gives us a chance to experience what it's like to be on the feathered end of a frosty white bombing run.

Wunderground Releases WunderMap For Android Tablets, A Unique Weather Application That's All About The Radar

If there's one belief I have when it comes to mobile devices, it's that you can never have too many weather applications. I'm not sure where that obsession comes from, but I periodically have to remind myself to clear out the ones I no longer look at.

Given my love for good weather apps, I can't help but grab all the latest ones as soon as they hit the Play Store (if they look good, of course), and when I hear the name Wunderground, I immediately know it's going to be one worth keeping.

SolePower Smartphone-Charging Shoe Insole Reaches Its $50,000 Kickstarter Fundraising Goal

My power went out last night. This wasn't as scary of an experience when I had a dumb phone, which could last multiple days without having to be charged. Now that I'm toting around a 5-inch monster with a quad-core processor, I'm nervous if my phone will even last until nightfall. That's why when I saw that SolePower had met their $50,000 goal on Kickstarter in order to develop a shoe insole that charges portable electronics while we walk, they had my undivided attention.

[New App] CBS Replaces Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Fantasy Football App With Less Crappy Version

Just two more months, football fans, and your long wait will be over. Many NFL fans use the summer months to prepare their fantasy football teams and leagues, in the gentleman jock's alternative to Dungeons and Dragons. CBS has its own fantasy service (just like ESPN, Yahoo, the NFL itself, and starting in 2014, the official Android Police Fantasy Football Service) that was marked by an impressively awful Android app, lazily ported from the iOS version.

Locked bootloaders can be a real drag, but there's usually some way around it.

[New App] Control Center Shamelessly Duplicates The iOS 7 Control Center On Your Android Device

It's pretty common for Android apps to playfully emulate hot new features from the iOS platform, but rarely have the done so as completely as Control Panel. This app apes the iOS 7 Control Panel feature, a swipe up settings toggle and shortcut screen. It even lacks substantial configuration options, thus completing the iOS illusion.
