Google's Updated Branding Guidelines Clarify How To Name Third-Party Apps

Google doesn't want developers naming their apps in ways that could imply association with or endorsement from Android, so instead of the Android Music Player, it prefers Music Player for Android. The idea is that this distinction makes it clearer to users that the folks who make Android had nothing to do with the creation of this particular app.

Now the Big G has expanded this guideline to all other brands.

OnePlus Sells The One Phone With No Invite Or Pre-Order For Today Only

With all the limited promotions, holiday sales, and convoluted pre-order schemes, you'd think that OnePlus would get it freakin' over with and just sell the flagship One phone directly to consumers already. And they will... for just one day. Considerably less than one day, in fact, since the promotion will actually only be available for two hours, 7-9PM Eastern Standard Time. That's in North America - in Europe it will go on sale at 7-9PM Greenwich Mean Time, and in Hong Kong and Taiwan it goes on sale from 7-9PM Hong Kong Time (presumably tomorrow, since it's already passed for the 20th).

Motorola Uploads Bland-Looking Visual Voice Mail App To Google Play

Accessing voice mail has traditionally been a pain, and while visual voice mail takes much of the aggravation away, it seems many of the supplied apps are designed to capture the essence of the mundane experience and inject it directly into our eyes. To continue the trend, Motorola has added a Visual Voice Mail app to the Play Store that looks about as exciting as a confirmation dialogue.

The app adheres to material design enough not to make a device running stock Lollipop wince, but with awkward spacing and little in the way of color, it could be better.

Bloomberg: HTC One M9 And Smartwatch Coming In March

It's almost a foregone conclusion at this point, but Bloomberg is adding its voice to the chorus predicting a new HTC flagship phone this March.

Time to break out that old Nexus 7 or Nexus 10—Google has just posted system images based on Android 5.0.2 for both of these devices (razor and mantaray). The most recent version on these tablets before today was 5.0.1, so it's not like they've been waiting on Lollipop this whole time like some devices (cough razorg cough).
