Android 4.4 will officially be called KitKat. Along with the announcement was our first pictures of the KitKat statue going up on the Google HQ lawn, just like previous years, but something caught a few eagle-eyed viewers eyes. Did Google just accidentally unveil the new LG Nexus 5? Possible, but they quickly pulled the video.
Google+ page has shared details on Android 4.4. And in what seems like somewhat of a surprising name, Android 4.4 has been revealed as Kit Kat. The expected statue has appeared on the lawn at Google and Pichai has said they "can’t wait to release the next version of the platform that is as sweet as the candy bar that’s one of our team’s favorites."
approaching for LG's latest flagship powerhouse smartphone, the LG G2, we've received an international version for some initial testing. That rear button sure is interesting, but we're comfortable with it already after only a few hours of use. While we're still waiting for US release date details, check out a few pictures and benchmark results below.
Samsung Galaxy MEGA smartphone sits right on the edge of ridiculous, but in a way it's pretty awesome. Samsung's known for launching smartphones with big screens, as they were one of the first to be successful in the "phablet" category with the Galaxy Note. This time around they've taken things up a notch and the 6.3-inch MEGA barely fits in my pants pocket. Read on to see our full thoughts on this mid-range smartphone on AT&T.
Gameloft have just released the 8th installment to their classic racing franchise for mobile. That being Asphalt 8: Airborne.

From a brand new direction with the Moto X, to a trio of new DROID smartphones for Verizon Wireless. It's clear Google will work with Moto for most carriers, and the DROID lineup will be all Motorola's regular doings for Verizon. Today we're taking an extended look at the new DROID ULTRA.
HTC have some pretty big plans for the rest of 2013. With Robert Downey Jr. set to spruce up HTC and their latest "Here's To Change" campaign, followed by a rumored HTC One Max smartphone, it should be an exciting few months.

LG G2 and Moto X both officially here, it's apparently time to start focusing on the upcoming Nexus 5 smartphone from Google. The rumors have already started flooding in, and right out of the gate we're getting conflicting reports from all angles.

Motorola DROID smartphones are set to march into Verizon Wireless stores and reach the shelves later this month. Confirmed for August 20th the brand new DROID Ultra and DROID MAXX are quite the impressive pair, coming with 5-inch displays and a brand new 10 megapixel "Clear Pixel" camera, we're taking a first look at the retail DROID Ultra.
Moto X, a device presented by Motorola as the current sweet spot in the center of price, usability, and customizability. This device marks a point in the history of Android where what my colleague Chris Davies calls a "Context Ecosystem" has dawned, and in it an essential dismissal of winner-take-all hardware specifications in favor of an overall best-in-class user experience.
