nexusae0_lte_thumb.jpgT-Mobile bought up some spectrum licenses in the 700MHz block A space in 2013, and has started upgrading its towers just recently to take advantage of it. However, there are only a few devices available that can connect to Tmo's 700MHz (band 12) network. That's about to change, according to an updated webpage on T-Mobile's site. The Nexus 6, Sony Xperia Z3, and other phones will be getting an update to add support soon.

galaxy tab s 8.4

Back in September, the four major US carriers started launching their own LTE variants of Samsung's flagship Galaxy Tab S line. While they all offer the 10.5-inch incarnation for sale, only AT&T brought the 8.4-inch variant to market. What was interesting about this was that Verizon also had an 8.4 model (SM-T707V) in the pipeline. It passed through the FCC, but for whatever reason, it was never launched.

Fast forward to December 1, XDA user docchaos found a non-corporate Verizon Wireless authorized retailer who was offering the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE for $99 on contract if you bundled it with the purchase of a new phone.

player thumbUpdate: Google says that the Nexus Player is also available from TigerDirect. The official Nexus Twitter account also mentions Wal-Mart and Fry's Electronics, though it isn't available from their online sites, so it may only be on sale in brick-and-mortar stores. Staples' online store is also mentioned, but as of noon Monday, the Nexus Player isn't listed. Amazon now has an official listing from Asus available at the standard $99 price with free Prime shipping.

motothumbWhen Lenovo announced its intention to buy Motorola off of former owner Google, it was assumed that the Chinese manufacturer wanted an easy foothold into potentially lucrative Western markets. But apparently Lenovo is just as interested in getting Motorola's well-received hardware into the largest mobile market on the planet. Today Motorola announced in a keynote that it would begin taking pre-orders for the second-gen Moto G and the 2014 flagship Moto X in China, and showed off the Moto X Pro (basically a de-branded Nexus 6). 

All three models are mostly unchanged from their counterparts sold elsewhere, though they'll go without Google services and access to the Play Store, since the company doesn't formally operate in China.

woodsideI love the "Moto dimple" on the back of the Nexus 6. It makes the enormous phone just a little bit easier to grip (especially if you have a case with an iPhone-style logo cutout, like this one). But apparently the original purpose of the circular depression wasn't ergonomics, or even to match the branding on other Motorola devices like the Moto X. According to Dennis Woodside, former CEO of Motorola and currently the COO at Dropbox, the dimple was intended to be a fingerprint scanner.

As it turns out, the Android 4.4.4 update for the AT&T HTC One M8 that we covered over a week ago never actually rolled out to devices. The company pulled its page down, which suggests that it went up sooner than anticipated. HTC Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi took to Twitter over the weekend to announce that the OTA was actually due out this week, and that it would include both VoLTE support and the HTC Eye Experience software enhancements.

2014-12-23 12_33_16-Buy Now HTC One (M8) _ HTC United States

Just a couple weeks ago, HTC sent the Sense 6 Lollipop update to owners of the unlocked and developer editions of the One M8. Now, the kernel source for those devices has been posted to the HTCDev website. Remember, this is not the same as the Lollipop kernel source published well over a month ago for Google Play Edition devices; this is for phones running Sense.

Google's compatibility definition document (CDD) is meant to provide guidelines, requirements, and recommendations to Android device manufacturers who want their devices to be "compatible" with the latest release of Android, allowing them to pass Google's Compatibility Test Suite.

Last time Google updated the document, we noted at least one change of interest, requiring that manufacturers use white status icons with translucent bars. Naturally, when we noticed Google had updated the document again, we had to take a look and see what changes had been made.

nexus2cee_71uKogyopyL._SL1500__thumbSony's international phones have unlockable bootloaders, and the company even encourages users to tinker around with neat extras like AOSP builds. Alas, in markets like the US the carriers are still the keepers of the keys for a lot of customers, and T-Mobile has once again insisted on locking that sucker down for anyone who buys its version of the Sony Xperia Z3. Now users with this lamentable affliction can at least get root access on their phones, thanks to a bounty-winning method from an XDA user.
