Talk about a pleasant surprise on this Monday afternoon – the Nexus 6, Google’s new flagship phone that has been quite hard to acquire, is now available from US Cellular. In an even more surprising move, US Cellular seems to not only be selling the Midnight Blue model, but the Cloud White model as well, something no one else is doing outside of Motorola and Google Play.
If you are ready to attach yourself to two years of US Cellular service, you can order the Nexus 6 today for $199 (32GB) or $249 (64GB) on-contract. If you would like to avoid the contract, you can go “prepaid” and buy it outright for $660 (32GB) or $730 (64GB). But the question then becomes – is this phone unlocked and will it work on other carriers? That, we don’t know, unfortunately. (more…)
Ready to go out and buy a Nexus 6, the newest flagship phone from Google? Then you are probably wondering when and where you can do that at, I would imagine. November 12 has basically become the official launch date at this point, but that doesn’t mean that every single carrier or store will have the phone at that time. So, since tomorrow is the 12th, we thought a handy little list of stores, carriers, and availability at each would help you decide where you can focus your efforts. (more…)
Google posted a new message to their Nexus 6 listings on Google Play this afternoon, a message that might help you land their new Nexus phone, or at least be prepared to try and land one. According to all of the Play listings for the Nexus 6, Google is trying to get more devices in stock as soon as possible, but for now, will make more of the device available each Wednesday.
While not the best news, this is at least something, since most of us struck out in seconds when they went up for pre-order last week and have been wondering if and when more would arrive. Feel free to stop refreshing! (more…)
A US availability date for the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge has been announced this morning by Samsung as November 14. Well, they expect that it will begin arriving in carrier stores (Sprint is one) around that time – except at AT&T. AT&T announced availability this morning, as well, giving us a firm November 7 date for the arrival of this interesting device in select stores.
Other carriers will likely announce availability at any moment, so when that happens, we will update this post. (more…)
Now that the Nexus 6 is official and all details are known, you probably want to know when and where you can get one, right? For the first time in the history of a Nexus device, the phone should be easy to get at every major carrier, assuming you either want to sign a contract or pay a pretty hefty full retail price. According to Google, AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular will all carry the device, but you you will be able to get it through Google Play and Motorola’s store as well. (more…)
While Sprint and T-Mobile have seemingly passed on the new Moto X (2nd gen), US Cellular is willing to add this year’s flagship from Motorola to their line-up. As of today, you can buy the Moto X in black for $99 with new 2-year contract. Later in October, US Cellular will also make the black leather and bamboo backs available at a price of $149 on-contract. (more…)
The DL staff concurs that the LG G3 is one of the best, if not the best, Android phones on the market, so any news that more people will have the option to buy one is good news. Today, U.S. Cellular announced that the handset will launch on its network in October. (more…)
We still do not have a specific launch day for the new Moto X, but AT&T, Verizon, and US Cellular have all confirmed their plans to carry the device. Motorola told us in press briefings yesterday that AT&T and Verizon were the only two participating in Moto Maker (along with an unlocked GSM model), but the rest of the carrier situation remained a mystery.
