Beta is Now Live

Some of you might remember our review on the fantastic application Slices, a Twitter client, from One Louder apps. The wait is almost over, just went into BETA and those of you who requested access to the BETA through their website should be getting an e-mail with log in information soon. It functions almost identical to the Android application, with your slices being displayed on the left along with mentions and messages. As the BETA tag entails not every feature is out yet for, the Stats category and the People category still have a “Coming Soon” tag on them. All of the functions that has are there so you could easily drop it after goes live. My only nitpick so far is the theme of the whole site. Sticking to the darker theme like in the Android application would have probably looked nicer. Who knows though, changing the theme could be on the way after the release of the BETA, only time will tell. So, check your e-mails and give the new a spin.

and quot;Official Droid Bionic and quot; Twitter Page Announces Release Date, Verizon and Motorola Both Deny Ownership of Account

According to the “Official Motorola Droid Bionic Twitter page,” we’ll be able to get ahold of the highly anticipated Bionic September 8; too bad the Twitter isn’t actually “official.”

PC Mag reported that they’ve been in contact with both Motorola and Verizon over the Twitter account, and that both companies are denying involvement or creation of “@DroidBionic.”

Even without confirmation that the page is a fake, it was suspected as such based on the feed’s grammatical mistakes. Regardless, it has some 2,300+ followers, and several news sites are reporting the Tweet as official confirmation of the release date. It’s still quite possible for the Droid Bionic to be available September 8, but it’s certainly not official.
