Samsung’s funky and clever upcoming device is eagerly awaited by techies everywhere. (Or at least right-handed techies everywhere.) We’ve been waiting patiently to get a launch date for the phablet, and today we learned some new information. Japan will be receiving the device on its largest mobile carrier (NTT DoCoMo). The device will be black only until November, when a white version will be released as well.

The special device and its curved screen will eventually be available stateside sometime this year on all four big carriers, but as of right now, no one but Samsung knows when.

Moto X now $50 on-contract with Verizon

Posted by wicked October - 17 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

motox20142_1020.0 (1)

If you’re looking to upgrade soon and you’re on Verizon, we have just the deal for you. The Moto X 2014 is now only $50 on-contract through Moto Maker. You can design your phone on the website, personalize it with engravings and metallic trim, and have it shipped to your doorstep for the low price.

Add ons like expanded storage and wood or leather finish on the back of the device cost $50 and $25 extra, respectively, so if you’re in the mood to splurge more, you could add both of these premium upgrades and still be below the normal on-contract price for flagships of $200.

To make your Moto X, follow the link below to the Moto Maker website.

Thanks Steve

According to a new FCC filing, Sprint will carry the Galaxy Note Edge

Posted by wicked October - 17 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

For a device that is going to be very limited at launch, the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is going to be available in a lot of places. We already know it will be available through T-Mobile, and we’re pretty sure AT&T and US Cellular will be getting it as well, but according to a new FCC filing, it seems that Sprint will be getting Edge-y as well. 

edge-sprint-fcc

The new filing is for an Edge with the model number “SM-N915P” and offers support for Sprint’s network (LTE band 26, LTE band 41 and LTE band 25). It will be interesting to see how the device is received by consumers, and if Samsung decides to produce more of the unique handset. No word on stateside pricing, but judging by what we’ve seen overseas, it is safe to assume it won’t be cheap. Any readers out there going to try and get an Edge at launch?

Special Beats Music offer from AT&T comes to an end

Posted by wicked October - 16 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

BeatsMusicTop

When Beats Music finally launched their own streaming music service, playing off the name recognition of their line of headphones, AT&T managed to strike a special deal for their customers. AT&T subscribers were able to get the Beats Music service for a 90-day free trial, much longer than the standard 2-week trial period. In addition, AT&T subscribers could buy a Beats Music subscription for $14.99 per month, $5 more than the normal price, but could share their subscription with other users and devices. This special package is no longer available to AT&T customers although they can still order the standard $9.99 per month Beats Music service.

According to AT&T spokesman Mark Siegel, “There haven’t been any changes for AT&T customers who currently have the Beats Music family plan or who are within the free trial period. New subscribers can still get Beats Music through their app store or at beatsmusic.com.”

Since the original launch of Beats Music and the special deal with AT&T, the service was acquired by Apple for $3 billion. Apple has still not provided any indication as to what their plans are for the service and whether it will continue as a standalone offering available to platforms outside the Apple ecosystem. When the deal closed, Beats Music had about 250,000 subscribers.
