LG didn't do much of a job keeping the flagship G3 under wraps - pretty much every detail has been leaked in some capacity before today. But the press event in London made it official and laid the phone bare for all to see. LG's headliner for 2014 bests headliners from both Samsung and HTC with a 5.5", 2560x1440 screen boasting a DPI of 538. Unfortunately the oh-so-shiny case is only "metallic" (read: plastic), and not true metal like the HTC One family.

You guys like streaming Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, and lots of others to your TV, right? Of course you do, because bigger is better when it comes to watching movies, videos, or TV. It's a scientific fact.

Today, users in both Australia and Japan are finally able to get that satisfied feeling of hitting the "Connect to Chromecast" button, as Google's nifty little streaming gadget is now available in both countries.

It'll set Australian users back $50, and is available from Google Play, Dick Smith, and JB HiFi, according to Ausdroid.

Getting your hands on a budget tablet for around a hundred bucks isn't particularly challenging, but these decidedly underwhelming gadgets typically don't come with the latest version of Android. Toshiba intends to do budget shoppers one better by providing them with a 7-inch tablet with Android 4.4, all for $110. This little guy goes by the name of Excite Go.

Lenovo, despite being the relatively new owners of Motorola Mobility, didn't need this acquisition to produce attractive new hardware - at least for markets other than the US. The Vibe Z, which never made it to our corner of the world, looks poised to get a sequel that ups its game in every area that matters. Shots of a phone dubbed the Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro have surfaced, showing a 6-inch phone with a quad HD display, a 4000mAh battery, a 16MP OIS camera with dual LED flash, and a Snapdragon 801 processor.

My, my, but it is difficult to keep a device properly under wraps these days. The latest leak for LG's 2014 flagship G3 comes courtesy of the company's own Dutch website, spotted by Netherlands enthusiast site Portable Gear. LG took the promotional page down almost immediately, but not before keen eyes managed to record pretty much everything about the upcoming phone. Spoiler alert: reading the following won't leave you many surprises for tomorrow's event in London.

Moto-X-phone

The 64GB Moto X is fast becoming the latest unicorn of the Android landscape. After the graphics and code for a 64GB option were uncovered on the Moto Maker website, some leaked Sprint docs have shown up that offer more confirmation this device is going to be a thing. It's not a done deal, though.

It's been more than six months since we revealed changes in the code of the YouTube Android app that indicated the long-rumored YouTube streaming service was imminent. So what's the holdup? A rocky relationship between YouTube and independent music publishers may be to blame. Late last week the Worldwide Independent Network, a trade organization for indie musicians and labels, issued a press release decrying Google's treatment of independent labels.

The press release explicitly states that YouTube has approached labels both big and small with contracts for a new music service...

Remember that neato Sony car stereo we checked out at CES, which is basically the perfect receiver for someone who uses their phone for all their in-car entertainment? Well, the XSP N1BT (catchy!) is here. You can buy it from Crutchfield or pre-order it now on Amazon for $249.99, and it will ship out on Thursday the 29th, just barely making Sony's May commitment for release.

If you don't recall, the XSP N1BT is a Bluetooth-powered receiver that foregoes the fancy color screens of modern car stereos for a tiny dock that clamps onto your phone.

Since the launch of the Moto X, there have been two available storage options: 16GB and 32GB. For some users, 32GB just isn't enough without an SD card slot (seriously though, what are you guys doing with your phones?). Fortunately, it looks like Moto may be gearing up to launch a 64GB variant of the X, which looks to be available with a $100 price bump over the 16GB version.
