The HTC One (M8) is finally official, now available through a few select US carriers through their online stores. Customers hoping to grab the new One can do so online through Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T, but it appears folks hoping for T-Mobile and US Cellular will need to remain patient. (more…)
Just as we exclusively reported yesterday, the all new HTC One (M8) will be on sale today at 1PM Eastern in the U.S. All of the major U.S. carriers will put the device up for sale through their online stores, but Verizon will have some in-stock, in-store today. That’s right, if you want to get your hands on this phone now, you can.
If you don’t want to go to Verizon, all U.S. carriers will have in-store stock within first few weeks of April. Most in-store before April 10.
Sources have informed us that “All New HTC One” inventory is now arriving in Verizon stores, ready for tomorrow’s launch. That lines up with our report last week, saying that Big Red would indeed have stock available minutes after HTC makes the phone official.
With that said, we also reported last week that Verizon would have some sort of exclusive on the device, however, that will likely just be for in-store availability. AT&T and other carriers should have the phone available for order (online or via phone) tomorrow as well, if not within a couple of days. Verizon itself said on Facebook over the weekend (before editing the post) that they would have the phone “in our stores exclusively on 3.25.14.” The word “stores” is the key word here. (more…)
According to AT&T, the company has a secret. Unfortunately for them, and thanks to a gazillion leaks over the past couple of months, the entire world knows what it is. On March 25, HTC is set to unveil the All New One smartphone, with evidence pointing to a same-day release.
AT&T is hosting a sweepstakes in which a few lucky folks can win the upcoming device simply by filling out a form. The sweepstakes ends on March 25, so as hypebeasts, we are assuming that could mean the carrier intends to have the device for sale on its network on the 25th. (more…)
Itching to try out the Samsung Galaxy S5 or Gear smartwatches? If you live near a Best Buy, today is your chance. The chain announced yesterday that many stores will have sample units of the S5 and Gear line on hand starting March 21, several weeks before their respective April launch dates. (more…)
AT&T announced this morning that it will open up pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S5 starting tomorrow for $199 on-contract. Pre-orders can be made in-store or online, with shipments starting in “early April.” That’s right, no specific date has been set, but Samsung did mention April 11 during their big device unveiling back in February.

The Android 4.4.2 update for the AT&T Moto X has been approved by all parties and should begin to rollout as build 165.44.1. A soak test for the update was scheduled to begin last week, so we’ll just assume that went well.
Motorola posted up the changelog for the update this afternoon, showing an identical update to the other carrier variants of the Moto X, in that it brought cloud printing, better battery life, and fixed an email sync issue. Well, there was one difference – the AT&T model “fixed a bug that caused data connectivity issues for AT&T Moto X users while traveling outside the US.” (more…)
In a first move following their completed acquisition of Leap Wireless, AT&T will now merge Aio Wireless into Leap’s Cricket prepaid brand. Reports of this happening surfaced months ago, which we mentioned in our best prepaid plans post, so it shouldn’t exactly come as a shocker. The good news is that not much is changing, at least for now. (more…)
