Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 4 next Wednesday, but if you want a taste of the device now, the folks at SamMobile have you covered. Posted this afternoon in its full QHD resolution (2560×2560) and 17MB self, the stock Note 4 wallpaper is now available for download.
It’s colorful, brings back memories of past Note devices, and is huge. This ‘paper would make a good home screen filler on almost any device you own, including a high-res tablet. (more…)
It’s back! Our yearly DL NFL Eliminator Challenge is now open and ready for entries. This is our 4th year hosting this challenge, which is a way to share our love of sports with the DL community, but also reward one of you with a phone of choice. So yes, we are once again giving away a phone valued at up to $650 to the winner.
For those new to NFL eliminator challenges, they work like this. You pick one winner each week out of all of the games being played. If your team wins, you move on to the next week. Just keep in mind that you can only choose a team one time per season, so there is some strategy involved. With that said, by no means are these challenges as intense as fantasy football or weekly pick’em challenges. This is the simplest form of an NFL challenge you can participate in.
The season kicks off next Thursday, so you will want to sign-up now. We will try our best to remind you throughout the next week to sign-up, though.
There is no cost to you, yet you can win a phone of choice. Ready to sign-up? (more…)
T-Mobile announced this morning that it has doubled the number of streaming music services available through its Music Freedom movement. Also, the winner of its social voting poll, where customers told T-Mobile the music service they would most like to see included in the service, has concluded.

At the beginning of this week, a new smartwatch from LG with a round face was nothing more than a rumor that was somewhat difficult to believe. Fast forward to today and we have both video and image teasers from LG for a watch that is indeed round and will be officially unveiled at IFA next week. It’s name could be G Watch R or R Watch or something completely different, but it is coming. To make matters even more official, the watch has already stopped by the FCC under model number LG-W110. (more…)
LG posted a new image of their round G Watch to Facebook late last night, an image that tries its best to hide the actual watch without really hiding it. I say that because the image is of the watch surrounded by dark, but with a bright light shining over its shoulder that attempts to distract us from the prize. Thankfully, a little tweaking in any image editing program lets you see the watch in full form, for the most part. We have done that for you below. (more…)
This morning, Verizon announced that it would launch VoLTE and HD Voice nationwide within the coming weeks. They also pinged us later in the day with clarification on how HD Voice calls would be treated compared to regular voice calls (in short: the same). As the evening has progressed, we have continued to learn additional details about Big Red’s full VoLTE launch, including the two devices that will be able to take advantage out of the gate, specifics on Advanced Calling 1.0, how both Video and HD Voice calls are billed, and what happens when a customer hands-off from WiFi to LTE.

If there was any confusion surrounding the potential name of Samsung’s new Galaxy Note device, a new series of videos uploaded to YouTube today by the Korean manufacturer all but settles it.
At the end of three of four new clips that feature individuals sharing their stories of daily Note usage, the participants mention that a the new “Note 4″ is coming out. While that isn’t Samsung saying specifically that the phone will be called the Galaxy Note 4, they probably wouldn’t allow this many people to call it the “Note 4″ in their advertisements unless that was going to be the name.
We included one of the four clips. If you don’t feel like hearing about Mark’s Love Note, jump to the 1:00 mark to hear the Note 4 references.
We will be on hand next week for the Galaxy Note 4 unveiling in NYC.
