Nokia Steps Into the Android Game With the Nokia 6

Prior to the end of 2016, we started hearing rumors about the arrival of new Nokia Android phones in 2017 – potentially, a lot of them. And then just after CES, Nokia did announce a new phone, the Nokia 6, for China. Yeah, for China, so you and I won’t ever have the chance to buy one, if even for some reason you were excited about Nokia Android phones.

We figured this phone was worth a quick write-up because some of you do seem to care about Nokia’s Android plans. And also, this is the first Nokia Android phone from HMD Global, the company that bought the Nokia brand licensing rights. If this phone is a sign of things to come, I think it’s safe to say that we should all be at least looking forward to what’s next.  (more…)

As it turns out, that number has either adjusted to a higher number or we were simply wrong. Either way, another wave of customers are getting the boot and need to find a new plan or carrier by February 16. (more…)

Did Verizon Just Out a 256GB Pixel and Pixel XL?

Probably not.

However, if you head over to Verizon’s Pixel or Pixel XL pages and tap on the link to “Learn more” in the $10/mo promo they have been running, you will find mentions of 256GB versions of both phones (seen in image above). They even have pricing set for each depending on what you trade-in to get a Pixel, so there is an opportunity here for someone to get a little hypebeasty.  (more…)
