Metallic Blue HTC One Coming Exclusively To Best Buy, Available On AT&T, Sprint, And Verizon Starting September 15th

The HTC One first debuted in silver, and I suspect using Robert Downey Jr. to advertise this handset might just be a match made in heaven, because like Iron Man, the phone has also appeared in shades of red and black (though not yellow). Now Best Buy is rolling in a new version of the HTC One that the Iron Patriot could proudly hold to his ear, a blue version that's exclusive to the big box retailer launching on September 15.

HTC recently announced the Vivid Blue HTC One, but this looks different. It's Metallic Blue and seems perhaps a tad darker.

[Deal Alert] Philips Fidelio Android Speaker Dock On Clearance At Best Buy For $30, Shoqbox Portable Bluetooth Speaker For $75

Smartphones and tablets are phenomenal portable media devices, especially if you've plugged in a good pair of headphones. Relying on the built-in speakers might get by in a pinch, but they're not going to single-handedly provide background music for a party without a little bit of help. If you're in that situation, now might be a good time to check out the online clearance section of Best Buy, where we've found two speakers that have been drastically reduced in price: the Philips Fidelio AS111/37 speaker dock and the Shoqbox SB7200 portable Bluetooth speaker.

[New Game] Hexage Releases Reaper, A Beautiful Hack-And-Slash RPG

You probably know Hexage. This developer has been a part of the Android gaming landscape since the beginning with titles like Radiant, EVAC, and Robotek. Hexage's newest title is the 2D action RPG Reaper, and it looks amazing.

This game takes the essence of an RPG and distills it to work effortlessly on a mobile device. There aren't a plethora of buttons all over the screen, just left and right controls and a gesture area for attacks and jumps. You travel around the map, taking on quests and fighting baddies, all the time collecting gold to buy more gear.

As with some of Hexage's recent titles, there are in-app purchases, but they probably don't work like you expect.

[New App] Commercial Break For Android Sends Alerts When TV Shows Come Back On, Also Supports Live Programming

Commercial breaks have never been enjoyable, but after growing accustomed to Netflix's commercial-free experience and the brief pauses between Hulu videos, sitting through five minutes worth of ads while watching cable is more jarring than ever. It's possible to channel surf long enough to find something else to watch during that time, but you know the drill - either every show that's interesting happens to go to a commercial break at the same time, or you get too engrossed in something new to remember to turn back. Thankfully, there's now an app for Android that can address the latter problem. The aptly-named Commercial Break for Android sends you a notification every time a commercial you wish to skip comes to an end.

Motorola Debuts New "Lazy Phone" Ad Campaign For The Moto X With Three Hilarious Videos

HTC paid a pretty penny to sign Robert Downey Jr. for their new ad campaign aimed at completely redefining their brand, but we're still left scratching our heads as to whether it's going to pay off. Their first lengthy commercial was certainly quirky, but it didn't tell us anything about what HTC phones can do, and I'm not quite sure if they remembered to bring the funny. On the other hand, Motorola's new "Lazy Phone" campaign for the Moto X is absolutely comical, and it does everything a series of phone commercials should. The one downside here is that I only have three to share.

The LG D821 Is A G2 Variant And Not A New Nexus Phone, According To @evleaks - D820 Is Still Fair Game

We've all had a great deal of fun over the past few days speculating if an LG phone that appeared alongside a Nexus 4 in Google's video for the new Android 4.4 statue was a leak of this year's upcoming Nexus handset. Some folks at S4GRU stirred up even more excitement when they paired the device with an FCC filing for the LG D820. Now, according to @evleaks, the alluring LG D820/821 isn't actually a new Nexus phone - it's just a CDMA-compatible variation of the G2.

He followed this tweet up with a leaked picture of of the LG D821.

Sprint's LG G2 Pre-Orders Open Up On October 11th, Shipping "In Time For The Holidays" With Free Quick Window Case

Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile have all gotten their houses in order for the launch of LG's new flagship, but Sprint seems to be a bit behind the curve. The carrier has only just announced a pre-order for the G2, and it's October 11th - almost a month after AT&T and Verizon will have the phone on shelves, and a solid two weeks after T-Mobile. Sprint doesn't even have an official launch date for the phone, instead stating in the press release that the G2 will come "in time for the holidays," and that more availability information will be available at a later date.

T-Mobile Moto X Pops Up On Motorola's Site For $599.99, But It's Out Of Stock [Update: Black Version Is In Stock]

Motorola used very carefully chosen words in the original Moto X PR statement when the phone was announced. We were told the device would be in AT&T, US Cellular, Verizon, and Sprint stores. It looks like that's happening as planned. The PR also said the device would be available for all carriers, including T-Mobile, direct from Motorola. Now the device has appeared on Motorola.com for $599.99.

The listing says the T-Mobile Moto X is available "exclusively on Motorola.com," so that would seem to confirm T-Mobile won't be carrying the device at all. That means T-Mobile likely won't be offering financing on the phone.

Seagate Shows Off 5mm Thin 500GB Hard Drive Developed Specifically For Tablets

We've seen this lament on more than a few reviews: 16 gigabytes isn't enough storage for a mobile device anymore. Prolific hard drive vendor Seagate would like to offer an alternative to the sometimes stingy flash storage standard. Even 2.5-inch laptop drives are generally too big and power-hungry for tablets, but Seagate's new Ultra Mobile HDD crams up to 500GB of storage into a module just 5mm thin.

In addition to the thin design that could potentially fit in almost any tablet casing, the hard drive weighs only 3.3 ounces and uses as little as .14 watts of power. Of course hard drives can't match the speed of flash storage, so Seagate is also throwing in its proprietary Dynamic Data Driver with the OEM package.
