If you didn’t have your long-standing corporate discount axed by Verizon’s re-validation process over the last few months and a Chromecast has been on your list of must-haves, purchasing one through Big Red is probably a pretty smart idea at this point. Within the last day, Verizon began selling Google’s HDMI dongle to the tune of $34.99, the same price you’ll find it on Google Play, in Best Buy stores, or on Motorola’s site. That’s the standard price. (more…)
This morning, a number of you noticed that when checking out through the MotoMaker process, Verizon was no longer listed as a carrier option for the Moto X. Well, I should clarify that. You probably put together a 16GB Moto X and then tried to checkout, noticing that Big Red was left off of the list of available carriers. But that’s the thing, if you had chosen a 32GB Moto X, Verizon does indeed still show up, it’s only missing with the 16GB version that is missing. (more…)
The HTC One Max, with its massive 5.9-inch HD display and Snapdragon 600 processor, is now available from Verizon for $299 on two-year contract or $599 at full retail (woof). Leaked for months before its unveiling, the One Max is sort of a mix between the original One and One Mini, only it has been supersized. With its current specs and gimmicky fingerprint scanner, it tends to fall in the mid-range One Mini category, only HTC and Verizon clearly think this is a top tier device given the price. (more…)
Waiting to get your hands on the One Max (hands-on) through Verizon? Anybody? Well, just in case you actually are, you should know that dummy units are starting to arrive at retail locations, priced at what is expected to be $299 on a new two year agreement. For that price, you will spend the next two years with a device sporting a massive 5.9″ 1080p display, a Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and an UltraPixel camera. (more…)
We’re fully aware that Motorola’s MotoMaker customization service has finally arrived for the Verizon variant of the Moto X and that you can snatch one up for an incredibly low $50 price, but what if you only have a single cent to your name yet still need a great phone? Amazon has you covered for the time being. For a penny ($0.01), Amazon will hook you up with either a black or white Moto X on Verizon. The deal is for new lines of service or upgrades, so everyone is essentially eligible.
There is no telling how long this deal will last, as the Moto X price has been jumping all over the place over the last couple of weeks.
And don’t forget that the Verizon Moto X is the first to receive Android 4.4 Kit Kat, an update that started rolling out today. We’ve already taken you on a tour with it and showed the world how to get Google Wallet up and running.
DROID XYBOARD 10.1 owners, if you still exist, you should be receiving Android 4.1.2 “Jelly Bean” at any moment thanks to Verizon and Motorola. After going months and months without word on the update, Motorola finally committed to releasing Jelly Bean to the neglected VZW tablet, they just gave us no indication as to when that might happen. Randomly tonight, a reader of ours received it. (more…)
When Android 4.4 Kit Kat was originally announced 3 weeks back, Motorola confirmed that the Moto X and new DROID family would all see the update fairly quickly. What we weren’t sure about was whether or not last year’s DROID family would see the same joy – that would be the DROID RAZR HD, RAZR MAXX HD, and RAZR M. According to recently updated Motorola update support pages, all three will indeed see the update to Android 4.4. (more…)
I’m still sort of having a hard time believing that Motorola just pushed Android 4.4 to the Moto X on Verizon three weeks after Google announced it and before some Nexus devices even have it, but hey, no one is complaining over here. We’ve already updated our Verizon variant, so let’s do a quick run-through to show you some of the new goodies. (more…)
