We’ve seen several leaked images of the Verizon Nokia Lumia 929 in the past few weeks. The leaks intensified this week when we spotted Nokia Lumia 929 with Verizon branding from Mexican shores.
High-end, crazy big, uber-expensive slabs of silicon may no longer be all the rage, as “Mini” devices are catching on and growing in mainstream popularity by the day. Hot on the heels of the Galaxy S4 mini, HTC One mini and Sony Xperia Z1 f (aka Z1S, or mini), comes the Asus PadFone mini, a diminutive version of the quirky phone/pad hybrid that’s recently reached its fourth generation.
Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, now US Cellular and up next Sprint. That’s where you should look for Android 4.4 KitKat on Motorola’s Moto X, while the undervalued Republic Wireless version will reportedly have to wait until “early 2014”.
When the PowerPot first launched on Kickstarter, it turned into a huge success. Huge. Now the company is back on Kickstarter again with a newer level of “huge”. The PowerPot X and XL feature the same thermoelectric generation, but in a bigger size with more power.
Last month, Samsung released the Android 4.3 update for the Samsung Galaxy S3, which turned out to be a big mess and forced the Korean OEM to pull he update due to wide range of issues. Today, Samsung resumed the Galaxy S3 Android 4.3 update and we’re hoping that they’ve fixed all the known issues and bugs that were present in the previous firmware such as inconsistent WiFi issues, very poor battery life, laggy performance, complete lock-up of the device on lock screen.
And the Nokia Lumia 929 leaks Saga continues. Today, more images of the purported Nokia Lumia 929 surfaced from Mexico, showing us glimpses of the alleged handset.
Up for grabs from an array of stateside retailers, with or without contracts, Nokia’s proudest Lumia family members yet, the 1520 and 2520, have earlier today gone on sale in the UK as well.
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.
Not too long ago, LG unveiled the first curved display smartphone, LG G Flex in its home market. If you’re waiting for the handset to hit a store near you, you’d be glad to know it will hit the shelves in Singapore and Hong Kong this month, followed by key Asian markets by the end of this year. It’s not just Asia, it will hit other global markets very soon as well.
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?
