Oh, carrier exclusives, how we have missed thee. In this enlightened age when the flagship phones from Samsung, HTC, LG, and Motorola are all available on the Big Four American carriers, it's so easy to forget that some devices aren't. And just in case you needed reminding, it looks like the Amazon phone expected at tomorrow's press event is going to be an AT&T exclusive. So sayeth the Wall Street Journal, which tends to be spot-on with Amazon news.

The folks at Cyanogen Inc. are busy with more than the OnePlus One launch, if that's what you call this. There are also a pair of new apps in the Play Store. Theme Showcast pretties up your CM11-based device, and Gallery Next is live, but only for the OnePlus One right now.

Oppo announced the Find 7 in two flavors a few months ago, but it only sold the lower end Find 7a until now. Preorders are finally live for the Oppo Find 7 with a better screen, more RAM, and more storage. It'll also cost you a little more money, but not as much as you might expect.

Update 3: Live on YouTube is back, more than two weeks after it debuted and almost immediately vanished. The description still says it's only for the Xperia Z2, but we have no way of confirming that, so your mileage may vary.

Update 2: ...aaaaaaand it's gone.

Update: Commenters who own the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Tablet Z2, as well as the previous-generation Z1, have said that their phones are listed as incompatible.

AscentMate2-Thumb

Huawei is making an effort to extend its reach into the US market by selling to consumers directly. Last week the company put the Ascend Mate 2 up for pre-order on its site priced at an affordable $299. Now the handset is available via Amazon Prime as well, and it's shipping right away.

Mate2

For the price, the Ascend Mate 2 is a monster of a phone. You're looking at a 6.1-inch 720 by 1280 display, a 13MP rear-facing camera, and a massive 3900mAh battery.

Maybe it's the months-long PR buildup, maybe it's the extreme scarcity, or maybe it's just the manifested hopes of thousands of overeager Android fans, but the OnePlus One sure seems to be attracting more than its fair share of rumor and misinformation. Just over a month ago we needed to clarify that the powerful unlocked phone does not, in fact, have a MicroSD card slot, and here we are again. So, just to be clear: the OnePlus One is not waterproof in any way, shape, or form, and giving your shiny new phone a baptism is a very bad idea.

AT&T and Verizon, with their insistence on locked bootloaders for Android devices, are the scourge of the Android customization scene. Unfortunately they're also the largest carriers in the United States, which leaves a lot of Android power users in a pickle. If you're on either carrier and rocking a branded Galaxy S5, today is your lucky day: someone's gone and made a near-universal and amazingly simple root method that should work for the S5 (and more) on both carriers.

The Gear Fit has its share of problems, but it's still easily the best of Samsung's wearable watch-style devices so far. And one of the best reasons for picking one up over the larger and technically more capable Gear 2 models is the lower price. Now Amazon has given Samsung smartphone owners even more reason to lay their money down: a considerable discount on the Gear Fit.

Right now Amazon's price on the Gear Fit is $168.84, just a tad over $30 off the $200 retail price.

It's a card. Yippee.

Update: We've now gotten the Pokemon Master package from Google as well, and turns out there are actually 10 cards inside, not 1. The updated image is below.

If you remember Google's April Fools Day promotion that scattered digital Pokemon in maps all over the globe, you'll remember that it was awesome. Google also allowed those who had found all 150 Pokemon (with or without #151, Mew) to submit a form for a special prize.

The folks at CyanogenMod are on a roll with Chinese hardware. After adding official support for the Xiaomi Mi2, they've now published the first nightly ROMs for the OnePlus One and the very similar Oppo Find 7A. You can find the One download and forthcoming builds under the "bacon" codename, while the Find 7A is available under the Find7 label. Team WIN Recovery Project is already available for both phones.
