There’s been a lot of back and forth on LG’s long-rumored mobile processor debut, with the so-called “Odin” SoC tipped to find its way inside the G Pro 2, then the G3, and ultimately the G Pro 3. But as tipsters recently suggested, LG plans to give its first in-house chip a local test run before anything.
So the Apple iPhone 6/6+ and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are out and in full swing. The latest Google Nexus smartphone is about to hit retail shelves too. But even though these newer models are getting much media attention, it doesn’t mean that everyone is choosing to upgrade. Some of us upgrade every other year, or maybe hold out even longer than that. Either way, it’s hard not to get caught up in the “latest and greatest” frenzy.
Well, this is unusual. AT&T is trying to resuscitate stagnant sales of the gimmicky Amazon Fire Phone by bundling it with a one-year-old tablet. Which Ma Bell didn’t directly sell until today. Meanwhile, Amazon is pushing said aging slate less and less, in both Wi-Fi-only and LTE-enabled flavors available with Verizon or AT&T bands.
It’s not exactly customary to see carriers offer discounts on devices as hotly anticipated as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 mere days after putting them up for sale. But T-Mobile is ready to make an exception.
Sony’s latest Moto G slayer barely went up for sale via (some) online retailers stateside, and Expansys already saw fit to adjust the entry-level Android’s no-contract price tag. Initially available at $199.99, the Xperia E3 suddenly dropped to $139.99, which actually makes it a decent Moto G alternative.
Still having trouble discerning between all of LG’s derivative G3 versions? Can’t figure out for the life of you why the G3 S is dubbed that way in certain regions, and named G3 Beat elsewhere? Wish you’d have never heard of the G3 A or G3 LTE-A?
Much virtual ink has been spilled over the years on Sony’s mystifying inability to widely release its amazing Android-powered gear on the North American continent. But just when we were about to completely lose hope for a reversal of fortune, the Xperia Z3 trio came to light.
Not all amazing tech products bring something entire new and different to the table. Sometimes all you need is the right ingenuity to combine existing features, and to also have an eye for design. That’s exactly what the development team behind the Bluesmart connected carry-on did.
One of the more surprising recent Google releases, the Nexus Player set-top box, and perhaps the most predictable in a while, the Nexus 6 phablet, are expected to roll out to end users at around the same time.
It seems the mega-success of the first-generation mid-range Galaxy Mega phablets caught everyone off guard, Samsung included. Otherwise, we can’t explain why the sequel took so long to materialize. Or why the original 5.8/6.3 inch pair spawned just the one heir.
Remember the good old times when Apple proclaimed the iPhone 5’s use of a “bigger” 4-inch panel a “dazzling display of common sense”? When 5 inchers were marketed as tablets? Clearly, a new era is upon us, as hardware manufacturers are now adding the “Mini” suffix to names of devices once considered unwieldy giants.
Today, in the latest installment of the never-ending “what is Verizon thinking?” saga, we’re beyond heartbroken to report America’s largest wireless carrier may have delayed its Nokia Lumia 735 launch.
