Ever wanted to be able to build your own smartphone, just as you’d be able to order custom desktops and laptops from certain manufacturers? A new report suggests that Google and Motorola could soon offer such a feature in its upcoming X Phone.
With just a few hours left until the Galaxy S4 gets official, this new X Phone report comes our way via Android and Me, which had access to some inside information regarding this upcoming Google Android handset.
Obviously, this is just a rumor at this time, and we can’t confirm anything just yet, but the X Phone is said to...

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is about to be unveiled, but ahead of its launch we already have word that U.S.-based MVNO, Ting, is getting the handset around the same time as the bigger mobile carriers such as Sprint, Verizon and AT&T.
Typically the bigger carriers get new flagships first, then the smaller carriers shortly after. MNVOs generally get the flagship handsets many months later, if not even longer than that, so this is great news for fans of Ting.
Outside of the epic news about the Galaxy S4, Ting also announced they are getting their hands on the HTC One as well, though no exact timeline has been...

The Galaxy S4 is now official, so we can finally talk about actual release dates and pricing details for the handset.
As it did before, Samsung will launch its flagship product almost simultaneously in multiple markets. From the beginning of the show, Samsung’s JK Shin told us that the Galaxy S4 will hit no less than 327 carriers in 155 countries.
Without specifying actual launch dates, Shin said that the handset will hit stores in late April, or about a month later than initially rumored.
The Galaxy S4 will come in both 3G and 4G versions and it will support a variety of...

HTC, in what can only be construed as goodwill, has extended the time period for the trade-up program as it relates to the HTC One. Now, instead of only giving customers the remaining two weeks of March, HTC is giving them until the near-end of April.
“HTC is thrilled with the positive response we have received to our $100 trade-up offer. Due to this, we are extending the offer for customers who purchase the HTC One by 4/26 and trade in their old device by 5/31. We are pleased to bring this offer to even more...​

Google isn’t done with the reorganizations just yet! Following news of Andy Rubin’s move away from Android with Sundar Pichai taking over, and the company’s second round of “spring cleaning” which involves shutting down Google Reader, which fans are trying their best to save, the Wall Street Journal reports that Google is now dividing it maps and commerce unit, with VP Jeff Huber, who headed the department, moving to Google X labs.
Huber has been with Google since 2003, and...

Over the last year or so, Verizon has been gobbling up all the AWS spectrum the company can get its hands on but hasn’t done much with it. This all changes soon, as the first AWS devices are scheduled for this July, with 5000 AWS-enabled LTE sites by the year’s end.
The news comes by way of Verizon’s CTO Nicola Palmer in an interview with Fierce Wireless, where Palmer detailed out their AWS plans going forward. Palmer indicated that outside of this year’s plans, they will continue to rollout AWS support into next year and will continue launching devices that can use AWS frequencies.

The community led LibreOffice software suite has been in development for quite a while since it split from the well known Linux based OpenOffice.org community. The software suite supports over 30 different languages and a good selection of operating systems, but sadly not Android.
A small group of developers have been hard at work for over a year attempting to port the open source office suite over to Android, and they are on the verge of having at least part of the project ready for release.
In a recently interview LibreOffice developer Michael Meeks discussed some of the issues he is having finishing the project. The most prominent problem simply being a lack of resources; most of the...

Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller must be quaking in his iBoots right about now, knowing that today is the day that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will officially be unveiled. He certainly seems busy trash talking Samsung and Google in the meantime.
Yesterday Schiller was interviewed by the Wall Street Journal, where he mentioned fragmentation in Android but largely focused on how the out-of-box experience was supposedly inferior with Android. That same day he also spoke with Reuters, bringing up many of the...
