Samsung Galaxy S6 Up For Pre-Order March 27th In The US, Available In Stores April 10th

Samsung has announced official US availability dates for the Galaxy S6, and they might sound rather familiar. Just like the HTC One M9, you can pre-order the new Galaxy tomorrow (March 27th) and pick one up on April 10th. The exact details will vary by carrier, but already both AT&T and T-Mobile have announced pre-orders for tomorrow. Other carriers haven't announced official details yet, but I expect it won't be long.

Root Method Now Available For Verizon's Motorola DROID Turbo - With Some Big Drawbacks

Pity the poor Verizon customer, whose options for user-moddable Android phones are more limited than any other US carrier. It's particularly cruel, then, that Verizon tends to get some awesome Motorola exclusives in the DROID line. 2014's entry is the DROID Turbo, which is basically the Nexus 6 crammed down into the 5.2-inch body of the second-gen Moto X, plus the usual DROID Kevlar styling and an enormous 3900mAh battery. Oh, and a locked bootloader that makes root and custom ROMs difficult.

Motorola's President and COO, Rick Osterloh, hosted a Twitter chat yesterday under the hashtag #AskRickO in which he answered a few questions regarding the company's expansion, release plans, device updates, and showed his current phone and watch setups.

The most interesting bit of information came in reply to Sumer Broota, who asked him whether Motorola had any plans to release a tablet this year. Rick said no and pointed toward Lenovo's line of Yoga tablets as an alternative.

HTC One M9+ Leak Looks Like Someone Took An M9 And Beat It With The Ugliest Ugly Stick Ever Snapped Off The Ugly Tree

There were a few leaks of a larger version of the M9 in advance of the announcement, but it didn't show up back at MWC. Still, it looks like this phone is still going to be released in the Asian market. New images of the M9+ have been leaked, and it's not an attractive device. I realize design is subjective, but 4 out of 5 AP staffers think this is a truly ugly phone.

Rumor: YouTube Is Preparing A Re-Launch Of Its Live Streaming Service With A Focus On Twitch-Style Gaming

Have you noticed that it's impossible to search for a game-related video on YouTube without seeing dozens of hour-long "Let's Play" videos? You're not the only one. According to a report from The Daily Dot, Google is looking to re-make YouTube's live streaming service (the one you use for every official Android event) with a focus on video games. The report cites anonymous sources "within the streaming industry," so it's firmly in the rumor department for the time being.

[Deal Alert] Refurbished LG G Pad 7.0 LTE Tablet Currently Just $89 On Woot

Let's get something out of the way right from the start. The LG G Pad 7.0 isn't a particularly exciting piece of hardware. It's powered by a Snapdragon 400 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. That 7-inch display only provides 1280 by 800 pixels. On the software front, you're looking at Android 4.4.

But if you turn your eyes towards Woot, you will see that the site is offering a refurbished LG G Pad 7.0 LTE for only $89.99.

CyanogenMod 12 Nightlies Now Available For The Moto Maxx, DROID Turbo Users Green With Envy

Before we continue, let's get a couple of things straight: this is the DROID Turbo (model number XT1250), a souped-up version of the Moto X 2014 that's exclusive to Verizon in the United States. It's ostensibly a sequel to the DROID Maxx from 2013, and like almost all Verizon-branded devices, it has a locked bootloader. No custom ROMs for the poor DROID Turbo. And this is the Moto Maxx (model number XT1225), the exact same phone released without the Verizon branding or a locked bootloader, and currently sold only in Latin America.

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Is Also Getting Its Lollipop Update Today

What's this? A current-generation AT&T phone and its year-old sibling getting updated on the same day? We have an embarrassment of riches, folks. Just a few hours after the Lollipop over-the-air update for the Galaxy Note 4 started on Ma Bell, the Galaxy Note 3 (from 2013) is getting the same treatment. AT&T's support page says that this is Android 5.0, build number N900AUCUEOC1.

As AT&T does with all their updates, the OTA will only start on Wi-Fi (and not that mobile connection that you're paying them to provide).
