Motorola’s X Phone campaign went live today, and with it comes a sign up page to be the first to know about the device when it becomes official. Normally, you find out the official details of a device way before they come out thanks to leaks ahead of time, but with how much mystery Motorola has surrounding this phone, signing up might be a good idea. You can get to the official registration page at the link below.

While Twitter is certainly doing its best to lay the smackdown on Falcon Pro, it doesn’t mean that the awesome Twitter client should be left for dead just yet. Developer Joaquim Verges recently announced that while Falcon has used up all its tokens, the app can still be used— albeit in a few unorthodox ways. If you are an app user and still happen to have a token through Falcon Pro, you can use the 2.0.4 version of the app. If you don’t— there’s a hidden way to log on from within the app, so you can still get in on the Falcon party anyways.
You’ll find more deets at the source links below.

After multiple rumors swirled around the web, Korean publications confirmed today that both the LG Optimus G2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 would feature 3GB RAM, the first devices to do so on the market. The high specs will allow the devices to handle multitasking much better without any hiccups, boosting performance by a pretty hefty amount.
Both devices are rumored to feature Snapdragon 800 processors, so these devices will certainly be competing against one another on the market. We expect both phones to be officially announced pretty soon with plenty of hype to go along with the release.

With all the buzz that the Galaxy S 4 isn’t selling so well, news comes out of Korea that Samsung has shipped 20 million units. How does this compare to the Galaxy S III? It took 100 days for the Galaxy S III to hit the same milestone. The Galaxy S 4 achieved this same goal in 68 days. This is pretty darn good, but unfortunately investors still might think this improvement is not enough. Time will tell, but one thing you can’t argue is the fact that the Galaxy S 4 is the fastest selling Android phone ever.
Since the official announcement of Google Glass and its wide spread over social media and the internet, many questions have been raised concerning the device, what it does, what it’s meant to do, and what it will do in the future. Google hopes to quell some of these concerns through a new FAQ page on their Google Glass site, focusing on some of these issues and explaining what exactly they’re trying to do with this extensive project. Specifically, Google mentions app policies, privacy concerns, and even technology addiction. It’s not likely that this is enough information to please everyone, but this is certainly a start for those looking for answers. Check it out in the source link below.

Unfortunate news for HTC One S owners: your device will no longer be receiving OTA Android updates. That means that the phone will forever remain on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean unless owners look elsewhere for custom ROMs to grab the latest version of Android, 4.2.2 and above. It certainly isn’t the best news, but it’s a sign of good things to come with the Google Play Edition HTC One, which will most likely receive updates very soon after a new OS release by Google. Hit the break for the press release by HTC.
“We can confirm that the HTC One S will not receive further Android OS updates and will remain on the current version of Android and HTC Sense. We realize this news will be met with disappointment by some, but our customers should feel confident that we have designed the HTC One S to be optimized with our amazing camera and audio experiences.”
Popular image messaging service Snapchat has received a big update today to try and catch up with the iOS version, which was updated last month. Along with version 3.0.1 comes a brand new user interface that makes the app a little less clunky and a little more streamlined.
The camera refresh is very transparent, allowing you to see more of what you’re trying to capture. You can now swipe to the left to view friends, swipe to the right to view your latest snaps, and double tap a received snap to reply to the sender. In addition, the camera is faster, and users can now easily search for friends.
Facebook Home vowed that they would push out updates every month to its users. Considering the last update was on June 6, we were due for an update, and we have received one. However, we have no idea what this update actually updates. There’s no changelog on Facebook Home’s Play Store page, and the version number has remained the same from the previous version.
Facebook is using the staged rollout option to send out this update, so perhaps we will know what exactly has changed in a few days, once the update is available to everyone. In the mean time, you can try downloading the update from the Play Store link after the break, if you still use Facebook Home.
