Over the weekend, every single person concerned about an upcoming Nexus 10 tablet was thrown a heavy curveball. Since rumors began of a new Nexus 10, there has been little confirmation as to which OEM would produce the next rendition, with leaks coming from both ASUS and Samsung in a battle for production. Interestingly enough, new material has popped up by way of Reddit, which actually points to LG being the manufacturer. (more…)
Since its unveiling, LG has touted the “Self Healing” backside of the G Flex, which features a special coating that helps the device stay in pristine condition even after being lightly scratched up.

Update: Forget Verizon for a minute, Amazon is listing the LG G2 as being $199 OFF-contract. Yes, that’s $199 for one of the best phones of the year without a contract. I’d imagine it’s a mistake, but hey, might be worth attempting to buy. (Edit: AT&T Black G2 is $199 off-contract as well.)
Update 2: Amazon has corrected the pricing. If you got in on the deal, now we wait to see if anyone’s orders ship.
Update 3: Since the Amazon deal is dead, feel free to use coupon code “slick50″ during checkout at Verizon to get the phone for free on-contract.
Update 4: Folks are pouring in saying that their devices are shipping from Amazon. That’s great to hear, and we are excited Amazon decided to honor these deals. If your order was canceled, feel free to call them and state the situation. Some are reporting that they are reinstating orders now.
Who here has a new device on its way? (more…)

Come Monday, those on Big Red should finally be able to make their own Moto X. (more…)
