Verizon HTC One M9 Pre-Orders Start April 1

Hey, Verizon is awake today. Moments ago, they announced that the HTC One M9 will be available for pre-order on April 1, with in-store availability kicking off April 10. If that sounds odd, it’s because everyone else on the planet opens pre-orders tomorrow, March 27. This news shouldn’t shock you, though, as they are doing the same thing with the Galaxy S6.

The device will cost $199 with a new 2-year agreement or $24.99 per month for 24 months on Verizon Edge. Big Red will sell both the Gold on Silver and Metal Gray models with 32GB of storage.  (more…)

Reminder: Verizon’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Pre-Orders Don’t Start Tomorrow

Samsung announced this morning that pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge start tomorrow, March 27, at all sorts of carriers. Most carriers then followed up that announcement with a confirmation that they would indeed open pre-orders at their stores and online at varying times on the 27th. Verizon, as you may have noticed, hasn’t said a word today. That’s because they announced a couple of weeks back that their pre-order period would start on April 1(more…)

HTC One M9 Prices at Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint

Now that we have Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge pricing and availability out of the way, it’s time to focus our attention for a minute on the HTC One M9. Like Samsung’s flagships, the One M9 will go up for pre-order tomorrow, March 27, and arrive at most carriers April 10. Since there is only one model, pricing here is pretty straight forward, with a full retail price sitting right around $650 at most places, but there will also be monthly payment options.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Prices at Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint

Samsung announced this morning that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge go up for pre-order starting tomorrow, March 27, with nationwide availability opening up on April 10. That doesn’t mean that all carriers will have the device available that day, so we thought we would gather all of the information from individual carriers and slap it for you in a single post. Let’s make this easy – well, as easy as it can be with two phones, three colors, three storage sizes, and who knows how many price points and payment plans.

Here we go.  (more…)

Deal: Best Buy has Verizon’s Nexus 6 for $99.99

The Nexus 6 is officially available in Verizon stores as of this morning. If you were interested in picking up Google’s new Nexus through Big Red, but were waiting to be able to get one in hands, now is the time.

Best Buy is currently selling the Verizon variant of the Nexus 6 for just $99 with a 2-year contract. Verizon, on the other hand, wants $250 for it.  (more…)

Awesome Deal: Verizon Moto X (2nd Gen) in Bamboo for Just $259

Whoa, talk about a semi-insane steal. An ebay daily deal just popped up for the Verizon Moto X (2nd gen) 16GB in bamboo at just $259. That would be the without-a-contract price. Oh, it ships for free too.

The device is “manufacturer refurbished,” so it’s not brand new. However, many would argue that when you give a manufacturer a chance to refurbish their own product, that they often times then have a chance to work out any kinks that you may find in a brand new one. Either way, $259 for the phone that took the crown for 2014 Android phone of the year? That’s almost impulse buy territory, right there.

You should read our Moto X (2nd gen) review if you haven’t already.
