It could be that today is Black Friday, but full retail pricing on some of Verizon’s top devices seems to be dropping to pretty reasonable numbers. We’re talking the brand new HTC One Max at $499, a phone that launched 8 days ago for $299 on-contract and $599 off. (more…)
Isis Mobile Wallet - the joint venture mobile payment system of AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile – hasn’t exactly won over our hearts since its official launch earlier this month. With limited card support, we aren’t finding a way to even get started with the service. Since Isis only supports Chase and American Express cards, adding your everyday bank card or Visa isn’t possible at the moment. Well, it sort of is now, in a round-about way. (more…)
Verizon has rolled out its Black Friday deals early this morning with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 looking like the best of the lot. Normally priced at $299 on-contract, Verizon has slashed the price to $199 on-contract for the day or $599 at full retail. If the Note 3 wasn’t on your radar, there are some other deals here and there that may be worth a look. (more…)
We’re not even to Thanksgiving yet and there are deals to be had all over this vast internet. If the two tablet deals we told you about already weren’t doing the trick because a new phone is what you really had been holding out for, take a look at Best Buy’s pre-Black Friday deals. One includes the Samsung Galaxy S4 for free from Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint in any color you can find them in. The featured version on BBY’s site comes in “Arctic Blue” which is apparently new. But you’ll also find black, white, red, purple, and brown variants depending on carrier.
If you are an AT&T customer and really wanted the Galaxy S4 Active instead of the original 2013 flagship, it’s included in the free deal as well. (more…)
Just last night, we caught our first glimpse at the DROID Mini in White, making its way to Verizon right in time for the holiday season. This morning, @evleaks posted a press render of the DROID ULTRA in White, also en route to Verizon. Much like the Mini in White, nothing is different about this phone – same 720p display, 10MP camera, Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, etc. (more…)
The best Twitter account for leaked devices, @evleaks, is at it again. Recently posted to the account is a photo of the DROID Mini in White, headed for Verizon’s network. It appears to be the same ol’ Mini, just featuring an all white body. Still rocks the same 4.3″ 720p display, Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, 2,000mAh battery, and 10MP back-facing shooter. (more…)
Thanks to a new beta tool created by Justin Case, the Moto X on Verizon and AT&T running the new Android 4.4 update has been rooted. The process isn’t necessarily as simple as it has been in the past, but this method installs a “backdoor” to help regain root and also requires a downgrade in bootloaders to “re-expose a vulnerability.” There are tons adb commands involved along with the use of Cydia Impactor to open a Telnet session. Again, it’s not pretty or anywhere near a 1-click option, but at least you have an option. (more…)
