HTC One M8 colors

The new HTC One — aka the M8 — comes in not one, not two, but three colors. (And two finishes, actually.) A couple may look familiar, and the third looks pretty stunning.

And, of course, they've all got flouncy names. Consider: Amber Gold, Glacial Silver, and Gunmetal Gray. Otherwise known as gold, silver and gray.

OnePlus settles on April 23 for its #neversettle smartphone

20

Much hyped device will finally be unveiled to the world

The OnePlus One has been trying to work the Android crowd into a frenzy with its promise of being a #neversettle device. Gradually more and more about the device has been revealed and now so has the actual date for the grand unveiling.

On April 23 we'll get to see what all the fuss is about. OnePlus recently confirmed it settled on a Snapdragon 801 CPU and not the originally announced Snapdragon 800. So there we have it. Until April 23, then.

Join us on two continents to see what's new in HTC's latest flagship

Today is the day. Teased, leaked and basically splayed all over the place for some time now, we're finally going to get our official introduction to the new HTC One. Codenamed M8, this thing has been hyped up to incredible levels. HTC's own Cher Wang and Peter Chou both told us at MWC back in February that March 25 would see "the best get better," and here we are.

Not doing things by halves, HTC is throwing two separate launch events on opposite sides of the Atlantic. We're live in both London and New York City and we'll be bringing you guys with us to both in the liveblog below!

Now that we've got the T-Mobile Galaxy S5 price, what's next? Why, the ubiquitous unboxing, of course.

See the Galaxy S5 and Gear smartwatches at select Best Buy starting March 21

Here's a chance to try all of Samsung's new devices at your participating Best Buy before they go on sale

While Android bloggers and journos may get a chance to rub all up on new phones before they are available, it's not very often that everyone gets a chance. But that's what select Best Buy locations are doing, and it starts March 21 — that's today!

Stores with Samsung Experience shops will have the Galaxy S5, the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit on display for you to fiddle with, and this will be your only chance to get a good look at them before the "mid-April" sell dates.

While playing with a display model attached to a bulky anti-theft device isn't ideal, it's better than nothing, right? Hit the source link below to find your closest location so you can go put your paws on some new Samsung goodies!

Samsung Galaxy S5 Experience teases the new phone on your existing one

37

Take a sneak peek at what's coming on April 11

Some of us have had the pleasure of seeing the Samsung Galaxy S5 up close and personal, but for those who haven't this app is about the closest you'll get before April 11. The Samsung Galaxy S5 Experience is essentially a demo app showing off some of the new features of the Galaxy S5 on your existing phone.

It's not really interactive, since you're lead what to tap and when. But it does show off the new look S Health, the HDR Rich Tone, Download Booster and plenty more of what's headed our way. Sure, it's not an accurate experience when you're looking at things like the camera, but it does give us a look at some of the software and walks through how to do things like turn on Download Booster.

Grab it for yourselves from the Play Store at the link up top. If you like what you see, we're only about three weeks out from actual phones in hands.

Sprint this morning has announce its Galaxy S5 price — and it's right in line with what we've already seen. You'll pay $199 with a two-year contract — after a $50 mail-in rebate, mind you — or $649 if you're purchasing outright. Or if you prefer Sprint Easy Pay, the Galaxy S5 will cost $27.09 a month for two years, with $0 down.

Phones will be available on April 11, and you can preorder today. And for a limited time, anyone who purchases a GS5 on a Sprint Framily plan with Easy Pay will get a free Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 (on a data plan with a two-year agreement).

Sprint's Galaxy S5 will be available in Charcoal Black and Shimmery White, and it'll be able to take advantage of Sprint Spark data speeds.

Verizon HTC One (M8) promo box tells us to 'hit refresh' at 1pm ET on launch day

Teasers suggest quick Verizon launch for HTC's upcoming flagship

As we prepare for the arrival of the new HTC One (M8) next Tuesday, there's evidence that the UK might not be the only country getting a quick M8 retail launch. Over in the U.S., at least one Verizon store has received promotional boxes telling shoppers to "get ready to hit refresh" on March 25, at 1pm ET. That's within an hour of the time given by British retailer Carphone Warehouse, which will be selling the M8 in London immediately after the launch event.

The source of the image, Android Central forums poster Joe the Insider, says his store is also receiving an M8 demo unit. All of which points to a likely Verizon M8 launch soon after the announcement, possibly even the same day.

As for the teaser image itself, it seems to show the new HTC One behind the fancy dot-based flip case we saw leaked a few weeks back. Leaked shots of the accessory showed various color options, and the ability to display the time and weather when closed.
