As you know after seeing our continued coverage of cases from the likes of Portenzo and Treegloo, we’re big fans of products that are hand-made in the U.S. The latest to enter our radar is none other than DODOcase, a company based out of San Francisco that has been around for some time in the Apple case game. Over the last year or so, they decided to enter the Android realm as well, and have produced some of the finest sustainable cases around.

This afternoon, we’re taking a look at their new Durable sleeve for the Nexus 4 and Galaxy S3, along with the matching Durable for the Nexus 7. They are very much like the classic smartphone pouch that has been around for years, however, very few can match the quality and design.  (more…)

A new update for Verizon’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 has been approved as build VRBMB1 (Android 4.1.2). The update improves predictive text in the keyboard, allows users to take pictures while on calls, syncs emails better, and enhances Bluetooth. That’s pretty much it, well, other than some added bloatware.

It’s not Android 4.2 The update is 150.3MB in size.

Typically when Verizon approves updates, we see them arrive on devices within a week. The rollout tends to start with a few devices and then rollout to more as the days progress.

Galaxy S3 LTE

Dates have been set for the launch of T-Mobile’s Galaxy S3 that comes with LTE support. Their 4G network might still be in the fledgling state, but as the months come and go, it will grow and become more accessible to their customers. March 27 and April 3 are the supposed dates of the device’s launch, alongside the Galaxy Exhibit, the BlackBerry Z10, and even a 4G LTE hotspot called the Sonic 2.0.

So, umm, do people who bought the Galaxy S3 on a new two year when it was first released for $300+ on T-Mobile get some type of deal on this one? Yikes.
