Talk about rock-solid sources of classified intel. We used to think there was no one more reliable than Twitter insider @evleaks and no publication with a cleaner track record than Wall Street Journal.
And the circle is now (almost) complete, as US Cellular’s variant of the Motorola Moto X is apparently to be spoiled with a chocolaty treat any second now. That’s right, according to trusted sources on the inside, the nation’s fifth biggest wireless carrier is gearing up for an Android 4.4 KitKat rollout, with the first OTAs bound to go out by the end of the day.
Amazon is really bringing the Christmas magic early in the lives of Android aficionados, holding two almost equally as attractive promotions despite Black Friday and Cyber Monday being long gone.
And just like that, Samsung has brought to light yet another member of the ever-growing Galaxy family of smartphones. What does that make, two, three dozens of handhelds released this year alone?
Who says Black Friday and Cyber Monday have to last only one day each and, once they’re gone, bargain hunters need to play the waiting game until Christmas? Not Amazon, as the famed online retailer has prolonged its Cyber Monday sale, slapping it with a December 8 (i.e. Sunday) expiration date.
November 21 came and went and, as you may have noticed, Nokia’s Lumia 929 still didn’t go official. Could we have all been the victims of an extremely elaborate hoax? Was the 929 nothing more than a figment of our rich imagination? Was it real, but then got canceled for some mysterious reason?
HP’s tardy Android tablet debut was surprisingly timid, as an underwhelming Slate 7 saw daylight last spring, but apparently, the PC market champion priced the thing low enough to become (mildly) popular and warrant follow-ups.
Nokia’s Lumia 1520 is quite possibly the first ever bona fide high-end contender to run Windows Phone 8, yet as it spectacular as it looks on paper, its stateside box-office success may not come very easy.
This year’s Cyber Monday was supposed to be a big day for Motorola, probably the biggest in ages, as Moto X’s SIM-free price was to be slashed to a point where no one could really refuse the customizable phone.
LG might be in an unusually comfy position in the high-end mobile scenery at the moment, thanks to the breathtaking G2 and especially the Google co-branded Nexus 5, but that doesn’t mean the Koreans are resting on their laurels.
Samsung’s recipe for success in the mobile game consists of many ingredients, flavors and spices, but beyond innovation, massive advertising investments and unique designs, the most important trick up the Koreans’ sleeve is diversity.
First, there was Samsung and Acer. Then HP and Lenovo joined them, followed closely by a product Google made from scratch. And now Asus and Toshiba also want in.
