Alcatel onetouch

If you’re a MetroPCS customer and in the market for a new, cheap tablet, there’s a pretty good deal available available for you right now.

The prepaid carrier (through T-Mobile) is offering the Alcatel Onetouch Pop 7 tablet for $149 (plus tax) on a pretty inexpensive data plan. For $10/month, you can get unlimited data, which siphons off 1GB  of data to the Pop 7 tablet. If you add the device to an existing plan, you’ll get a $5 monthly discount off your bill. Here are the rates for current subscribers, straight from MetroPCS/T-Mobile’s press release..

  • $10 / month: Unlimited data with first 1GB of high-speed data at up to 4G speeds
  • $20 / month: Unlimited data with first 3GB of high-speed data at up to 4G speeds
  • $30 / month: Unlimited data with first 5GB of high-speed data at up to 4G speeds

The tablet itself isn’t much in itself — a 1.3 GHz dual-core processor, 7-inch display, 8.9 mm thin, Wi-Fi/4G/Bluetooth and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean — but it still isn’t a bad deal for prepaid customers looking to expand their tech arsenal.

Google Play carrying Nexus 9 cover and keyboard folio

Posted by wicked October - 18 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

nexus_9_official_cover_black

Two accessories for the Nexus 9 arrived in the Play Store on Friday. Both have to do with protection and usability. The first is the official Nexus 9 Cover that also folds into a stand. It comes in Black, Lime Stone, Coral Amethyst, and Mint Indigo with the polyurethane material. The other options are Black Leather and Natural Leather. It folds in a bunch of different ways for various positions. One of the corners folds, when on the backside of the tablet, to expose the camera and activate it for quick snapping. The official cover costs $39 and Google lists it as “Coming soon.”

nexus_9_keyboard_folio_official

The other accessory is one we have known about for quite some time. The Nexus 9 Keyboard Folio, when not being used, completely protects the the tablet in a sturdy fashion. Opening up the accessory shows the keyboard full of functionality. It has two viewing angles depending upon the user’s preference for work and watching. It pairs with the tablet via Bluetooth. The downside of this item is that it is really expensive. The Nexus 9 Keyboard Folio is priced at $129.

Nexus_9_343434

As promised, the Nexus 9 and Nexus Player are both up for pre-order in the Google Play Store.

The Nexus 9 is going for $399 (16 GB) or $479 (32 GB) and you have your choice of black or white for now. The LTE option or the Sand color isn’t available yet. Assuming you order today, you can expect it to leave the warehouse within 2 to 3 weeks. Shipping is also extra, which could be around $9.99 (3-5 days) depending on where you live. Launch day is supposed to be November 3, so you will also find it at participating retailers then.

Nexus_Player_456

The Nexus Player is going for $99 and will leave the warehouse in 3-4 weeks according to the web page. Just like the Nexus 9, you will also have to pay for shipping, which could be around $9.99 (3-5 days) depending on your location. The gamepad goes for $39.99, but it shows as sold out at the moment.

Lollipop to be Released November 3th for Wi-Fi Nexus Devices

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

Google_Nexus_7_BackGoogle’s Lollipop is making waves worldwide, causing everyone to wonder who will get a taste of its sweetness first. As far as current models go, the Nexus 4 and 5 will not be receiving the update as promptly as their fellow Nexus devices. The Nexus 10 and 7s (Wi-Fi only) will be receiving the update to Android 5.0 on November 3rd.

The reason the Wi-Fi tablets will be receiving the update first is that it takes more tweaking and fine-tuning to get software working smoothly with a data connection than it does with only Wi-Fi. So, if you have one of these tablets, you can expect an update in about 2.5 weeks. If you have a Nexus phone, you’ll have to wait a bit longer.

HTC Nexus 9 pre-order goes live one day early on Amazon

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

Nexus_9_Amazon_01

The HTC-made Nexus 9 goes up for pre-order tomorrow on Google Play, but Amazon already started the party. Pricing is exactly the same as what Google will offer it for out of the Play Store. It’s $399 for the 16 GB version or $479 for the 32 GB version. You will of course have your choice of either black or white.

Shipping will commence on November 3, but the good news is that it’s on Prime, so you should get it in your hands by November 5 if you are a member.  You can take your chances and hope that one of the participating retailers will have it on launch day, but this is one way to secure one for sure. If it were me, I would just wait to grab it in store. I can’t imagine they will be sold out.

Also, this isn’t just a U.S. exclusive. Those of you in France and Germany, can also pre-order now as well, but it’s technically October 17 in those countries.

Nexus 9 finally shown off in real pictures and videos with keyboard case

nexus-9-5

The Nexus 9 is easily the most hotly-anticipated Android tablet of the year and over the past few days has shown its face in teaser videos, renders and cartoons, and while we may have to wait until later this month to get our hands on one, Techrum user tdiddy-2 has uploaded a ton of photos of the upcoming tablet to the Vietnamese forum. Thanks to Italian site Webtrek we also have a couple videos of the tablet in action. The official keyboard case also makes an appearance in the photos. Hit the break for the motherload.

As you can see from the photos, the keyboard case seems to fit quite nicely and allows the front-facing BoomSound speakers to blare media with no issue. The cover is a “smart” cover and also features a mechanical keyboard. Are any of you planning on picking one of these up? Or is that old-school 4:3 screen ratio a dealbreaker? Sound off in the comments and scroll down to see the Nexus 9 in action!
