College Collection

Moto Maker has added some pretty sweet options since its unveiling last summer, including bamboo backings for devices.

Today, Motorola announced that in the spirit of March Madness, the company would be adding nine new back colors and three new accents after studying the colors that many colleges use in their logos. Starting today, you’ll be able to fully customize your device with up to 40 college names and logos— Motorola will add more as time goes on.

Here’s the info on pricing from Motorola:

A custom Moto X from the College Collection is now available starting at the everyday price of $399 off-contract or $49 with a new two year contract. Currently in college? We’d like to sweeten the deal with a student discount. Register at motorola.com/college with a valid .edu address and you can get an off-contract Moto X for the discounted price of $339.

Seems like a pretty good deal to me— jump in if you’re feeling some school pride.

Huawei released a teaser video the other day for their MWC 2014 presence. The video indicates a couple new tablets will be revealed along with a new smartphone. Until now, many people seemed to think the possibilities for the smartphone included the Ascend P7 or the Ascend D3. A new possibility has emerged thanks to a new leak from Twitter tipster @evleaks who posted a new image of the Ascend G6 suggesting a reveal coming up this weekend.

The image shows the device, a low to mid-tier version of the Ascend P6, in five different colors including black, white, pink, blue and gold. The Ascend G6 will reportedly be 7.5mm think which is similar to an iPhone 5S. The screen will run at 960×540 resolution and is supported by a 1.3GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. Thus far, there is no indication the device will support 4G LTE nor is there any information indicating it will make its way out of the Chinese market.

The screen shot in the image shows a date of Sunday, February 23, indicating that may be the date it is unveiled.

Are the Nexus 5′s two color options just too boring for you? You may want to keep an eye out for Google to announce a few more colors for the stock Android handset. According to a leaked video showing a new Play Store listing for the Nexus 5, Google may begin selling the Nexus in 8 different color schemes; black, white, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. That’s enough colors that just about anyone should be able to find one that they like.

There’s not much else in the video, but if this is real, it’s definitely going to be a big announcement. Personally, I like the red option. Check out the video below and let us know which color looks the best to you. » Read the rest

A few pictures of the upcoming LG G2 smartphone have leaked, which show the phone in a variety of colors, including red, blue, pink, and grey. The pictures do look a bit suspect, so take it with a grain of salt. I am willing to be an awful lot that these are cases and not actual color options of the phone.

So far, here are the confirmed specs that we do know about for the device:

A Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Chipset at 2.3Ghz, a  5.2 inch Full HD IPS Display, 13MP camera with Optical image stabilization technology, Dual Speakers, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, Smart DMB supported(Digital multimedia broadcasting for South Korea), LTE-Advanced Supported, Physical Navigation Buttons are not present on front side, Built-in Wireless charging, and a 2610mAh battery. Check out the full image after the break. » Read the rest

This one we definitely expected. With sales of Samsung’s Galaxy S 4 skyrocketing, it only made sense to offer more color options for the device. Today they announced 5 new colors for their beloved S 4: Blue Arctic, Purple Mirage, Red Aurora, Brown Autumn, and Pink Twilight.

As always, there’s no news as to when these colors will hit the states, although we do know that AT&T nabbed exclusive rights to the Red Aurora color just as they did with the Red Galaxy S 3.

Samsung to release white and black Galaxy S IV with three different memory options for each

Samsung_Galaxy_S_IV_Logo_100

We’re still eagerly awaiting Samsung’s announcement of the Galaxy S IV, but we’re still picking up on a few rumors leading up to March 14th. We’ve already talked about the guts that will possibly power the S IV, but now we’re hearing word that Samsung will launch their new flagship in two colors and three memory options for each color. Instead of the usual white and pebble blue we’ve become so used to, Samsung will launch the device in a simple white and black. Nothing ground breaking there, but if history repeats itself, Samsung will likely release a few other colors a few months after launch, just in case you aren’t a fan of simplistic white and black.

As far as memory options go, the S IV will come with either 16, 32, or 64 GB versions for both colors, bringing the total up to 6 different variations of the device. Finding the higher memory options for the Galaxy S III could be difficult depending on the region you live in, so it’s good to see Samsung push these options from the get-go.

So which Galaxy S IV do you guys plan on picking up? Let us know in the comments.

New Samsung Galaxy Note II colors introduced

tagged , , , ,

Samsung has started advertising two new colors for their monster smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Note II, in the South Korean market. Samsung seems to be fond of producing different color choices for their devices as the life cycle progresses. The two newest colors for the Galaxy Note II are Amber brown and Ruby wine, the latter of which is closer to being a red than anything else.

The color change goes beyond just slapping a different color cover on the back of the device. The front face bits are also produced in the new colors and even the S Pen matches. No word though from Samsung as to when alternative colors, including these two, may be rolled out to other markets.
