Motorola finally made the metal band versions of the Moto 360 available yesterday through their online shop for $299. We were under the impression that when that move happened, early adopters of the Moto 360 would also be able to buy individual watch bands in either metal or different leathers. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, even though Motorola once again mentioned the fact that they planned to sell individual bands at some point in the near future.
Well, guess what? AT&T has them available right now, at suggested retail prices of $80 (metal) and $30 (leather). That’s right, if you want a replacement watch band for your Moto 360, AT&T will sell you one or two or three today in a variety of colors today. (more…)

Google posted a new message to their Nexus 6 listings on Google Play this afternoon, a message that might help you land their new Nexus phone, or at least be prepared to try and land one. According to all of the Play listings for the Nexus 6, Google is trying to get more devices in stock as soon as possible, but for now, will make more of the device available each Wednesday.
While not the best news, this is at least something, since most of us struck out in seconds when they went up for pre-order last week and have been wondering if and when more would arrive. Feel free to stop refreshing! (more…)
This morning, AT&T announced that they have added a new option to Next, their device upgrade and monthly payment plan. The new option is called Next 24, with “24” representing the number of payments you have to pay before you can upgrade to a new device. But not only does it stretch out your upgrade time, it also lowers your monthly payments by spreading them out over 30 total payments. (more…)
An HTC-made tablet stopped by the FCC yesterday under ID NM80P82300, one we are assuming is the LTE-ready version of the Nexus 9. As you may have noticed, the LTE version of the Nexus 9 hasn’t gone up for sale yet, nor have we been given a release date. This could be the reason why. As Google learned with the Nexus Player, you can’t sell a product unless it has been given the green light from the FCC. (more…)
As carriers have introduced Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) throughout 2014, the days of real HD Voice calling are almost upon us. That is, as soon as carriers start working together. AT&T and Verizon are the first to announce that they will soon have VoLTE interoperability between their customers. (more…)
The Moto 360, the Android Wear watch that we consider to be the best available (our review), will arrive at AT&T stores on November 7, alongside the G Watch R.
The device will run $249, just as it does everywhere, but if you buy it with the new Moto X (2nd gen), AT&T will knock $50 off the price. (more…)
