Deal: LG G Watch on Sale for $99 Through Verizon

For those of you who still might want to enter the Android Wear world, but don’t feel like spending a ton of cash, Verizon is currently selling the G Watch from LG for just $99. Compared to its usual price of over $200, more than 50% off ain’t all bad.

The G Watch, alongside the Gear Live from Samsung, was the first available Android Wear device from 2014. The G Watch features a 1.65-inch LCD (280×280) display, 400mAh battery, Snapdragon 400 processor, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and IP67 dust and water resistance.  (more…)

Verizon’s Nexus 6 Officially Arrives Tomorrow With Android 5.1

After months of waiting, Verizon has made it official – the Nexus 6 will be available tomorrow, March 12. Through a note in their news center, Verizon thanks Nexus fans for their patience while waiting for Google’s new flagship phone that debuted back in November.

The device will be available online starting March 12 and will then arrive in stores on March 19. If that sounds familiar, that’s because we broke this news last week on Twitter.  (more…)

Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge Pre-Orders Open at Verizon April 1

Verizon just announced that they are opening up pre-orders of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge on April 1.

Samsung originally announced that they planned to sell the phone globally by April 10, but I’d be lying if I thought that Verizon was going to come anywhere close to that date. They typically take their time (that’s the nice way of putting it) when testing devices prior to launch and often end up selling phones later than everyone else (Nexus 6, anyone?). If they are already telling you to prepare wallets for April 1, then they just may be able to hit that April 10 date. Good job, Verizon.  (more…)

Softcard App Will Shut Down on March 31, Accounts Closed With It

Softcard, the failure of a mobile payment system created by Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile, that tried its hardest to kill Google Wallet for years only to be acquired last month by Google in the most hilarious turn of events, is officially shutting down on March 31. According to emails being sent out to the four Softcard users in existence, the Softcard app will no longer work come March 31 and accounts will then be closed shortly after.  (more…)

And This is How Verizon Will Brand the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge

Shortly after yesterday’s big MWC announcements wrapped, we poked fun at Verizon’s mid-back branding of their variant of the HTC One M9. To keep it fair, we couldn’t help but do the same for Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge now that we have official photos. As you all know, Verizon is notorious for blasting their “Verizon 4G LTE” logo in increasing size all over the backs (and sometimes fronts) of phones. They appear to be doing so in full force this year on all flagships.  (more…)

FYI: Verizon’s HTC One M9, With Its Massive “Verizon 4G LTE” Logo, Won’t Launch Until Q2

If you are skipping Samsung’s two new amazing-looking phones to instead going with HTC’s new One M9, know that the phone won’t be available from Verizon until some time in Q2 of this year. HTC announced this morning that the new M9 would start shipping in March at select carriers and retailers. However, Big Red likely needs more time to test it…or something. Maybe it’s hanging out with the Nexus 6?

Oh, if you buy the One M9 on Verizon, you also get this awesomely large “Verizon 4G LTE” logo on the phone’s backside to look forward to.  (more…)
