Last week we reported that according to rumors, the upcoming Motorola Droid RAZR HD was expected to get a MAXX version, much like its predecessor, the Droid RAZR. Thanks to a tipster who tipped off the folks at Phone Arena, apparently this will not be the case and that the Motorola Droid RAZR HD will be the only device. While this might make it easier for users since they don?t have to choose between phones, the tipster also went on to reveal that the Motorola Droid RAZR HD will only have a battery with a capacity of 2,530mAh. This is probably kind of a bummer to those who were looking forward to seeing a battery of 3,300mAh which can be found in the RAZR MAXX. Other specs ?confirmed? by the tipster includes a 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8960 processor, a microSD card slot and an 8MP rear-facing camera, which seems to contradict earlier rumors of a 13MP camera instead.By Ubergizmo.

A couple of days ago we reported that thanks to a leaked document, it seems that Sprint could be announcing the Kyocera Rise for a release on the 19th of August. Well the good news is that if the Kyocera Rise was a handset you had your eye on, you will be pleased to learn that it has been confirmed for the 19th of August and will be priced at $19.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. For those wondering what they will be getting for their money, expect to find a 3.5? HVGA 480×320 IPS LCD display, a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 3.2MP rear-facing camera, a microSD card slot and will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich preinstalled. As pictured above, the Kyocera Rise will also come with a slideout QWERTY keyboard which some of you guys might still prefer over an on-screen keyboard. It is also expected to come with other features, like Kyocera?s Eco Mode, Swype, Sprint ID and your usual carrier bloatware. For those not on Sprint, the Kyocera Rise will also be making its way onto Virgin Mobile on the 31st of August and will be priced at $99.By Ubergizmo.

Verizon subscribers, if you were a bit bummed at the fact that your Galaxy S3 came with an encrypted bootloader, thus making the loading of custom ROMs and kernels pretty much impossible, you will be pleased to learn that thanks to elite recognized XDA developer, Adam Outler, the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 now has an unlocked bootloader. For those wondering what this means, it means that the bootloader is now open and will now let users customize the device to their hearts? content. The unsecure bootloader can be download via the XDA forums and as Adam Outler has stated in the forums, using this unsecure bootloader can potentially brick your device should Samsung ever release an updated version of their bootloader. What this means is that in order to avoid bricking your brand new handset, you should probably avoid factory updates unless you flash the Odin Packages first. If this sounds like a foreign language to you, then you should probably avoid downloading the unsecure bootloader without doing your homework first. In the meantime we expect that many Verizon Galaxy S3 users are happily flashing custom ROMs and whatnot onto their device.By Ubergizmo.

According to the rumors, Sony is expected to unveil new mirrorless cameras which is part of their NEX lineup. This includes the NEX-5R and the NEX-6, both of which are expected to be announced in September. While the specs of either camera has yet to be officially confirmed, the folks at Sony Alhpa Rumors have been tipped off regarding one of the features of the NEX-5R, and that is it will sport a new 16MP image sensor with phase detection AF pixels. This is reportedly the same technology that is currently being used on Canon?s first mirrorless camera, the EOS M, and it basically allows for much faster autofocusing and a more reliable means of tracking moving objects. They have also speculated that this new 16MP sensor could make its way onto the NEX-6 as well, which might not be so surprising considering that the NEX-6 was rumored to have a new 16MP sensor as well. Assuming the tipster is to be believed, this could be one of the selling points for the NEX-5R/6, but as with all rumors, we suggest taking this with a grain of salt for now.By Ubergizmo.

As we get closer to the fourth week of August, Blizzard has begun to reveal more changes that they will be making to the game once patch 1.0.4 is released to the public. We have covered the changes they will be making Legendary items, and Blizzard has since released more previews of the changes they will be making for the classes. So far only the Barbarian and Wizard class has been detailed, but we expect the remaining classes to receive the same amount of attention during the course of the coming weeks (if not days). While you can head on over to the Diablo 3 website for the full run down, the previews basically touch on the different skills and runes of both classes, and how they were making changes to them to make some skills be more attractive.
When Diablo 3 was being developed, some of the things that Blizzard touch upon was how they did not want classes to have a cookie cutter spec, unlike World of Warcraft where classes were pretty much locked to a certain style of playing due to it being able to output more DPS, survive longer or heal better. The changes that patch 1.0.4 will make to Diablo 3 will attempt to steer players away from pre-made builds and to explore their options and less popular skill choices. So if you?d like to learn more, the Wizard preview can be found here, while the Barbarian preview can be found here.By Ubergizmo.
