Thanks to evleaks, we have our first look at what the Galaxy NotePro 12.2 tablet from Samsung will look like on Verizon. As we can see, there doesn’t appear to be anything too different about the device from the WiFi-only model, oh, except the massive 4G LTE logo on the backside. (more…)
While AT&T and T-Mobile are creating ways to get you out of contracts and into somewhat cheaper data plans, Verizon is adding on new services that I can’t imagine anyone would ever use. Over the weekend, Verizon kicked off a new program called Smart Rewards that works sort of like a reward system that you would find from a credit card. By performing tasks or signing up for services or spending more money through your Verizon account, you can tack on points that can then be used for sweepstakes, auctions, travel deals, daily deals, gift cards, and merchandise.

If you have needed a good excuse to upgrade your handset, Best Buy is looking to help you out. For a limited time, February 2 to February 15, you can sign up to receive a $50 Best Buy gift card to put towards the purchase of a new phone on either AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint. You can sign up to four different lines for the credit, so if you were looking to surprise the whole family, then there you go. (more…)
Pretty amazing, right? Amazon has you covered if you’d like to frame it. No? Oh, you want to know what exactly it is that you are looking at? According to @evleaks – and EXIF data found attached to the image – this could be the first photo taken with the Samsung Galaxy S5 that is on its way to Verizon. If anything, the color scheme is on point. (more…)
Last night, we received word from sources who said that Verizon would launch two new smartphone plans this morning at prices somewhat lower than they currently offer. The first, would give you access to unlimited talk and text, along with 250MB of data for as little as $45 per month (plan now live). The second, would give you that same unlimited talk and text, along with 1GB of data for $60 per month. At first glance, those may not sound like deals, but if you consider that those prices are for the entire package, they technically are.
Let me explain. (more…)
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in Rose Gold is now exclusively available from Verizon for $249 on new 2-year contract. Well, it’s up on Big Red’s site, but currently showing as on “backorder” with a ship date of January 30. We aren’t exactly sure how that’s possible since the listing for it just went live this morning. Either they had four of them in stock or Rose Gold is hotter than a Moto X slashed for Cyber Monday. Or maybe they are calling it “backorder” since it won’t ship for a few extra days. Whatever.
If $249 and a new contract doesn’t sound like the time of your life, you could buy the phone through Verizon’s monthly payment plan called Edge (please don’t), and pay $27.15 per month for a couple of years. You could also buy the phone out right for $649 off-contract. (more…)
Verizon has this self-branded tablet called the Ellipsis 7 that you probably don’t know much about. It’s a low-end tablet that they try to sell for more than you can pick up a 2013 Nexus 7 for. They also try to sell it with a 2-year contract for $150, which is quite possibly the worst deal in tech at the moment. It features a 1.2GHz unknown quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 3.2MP camera, low-resolution 7-inch display by today’s standards, Android 4.2.2, and 8GB of storage. Again, it’s not great and probably shouldn’t be in your top 100 list of potential tablets to buy. (more…)
LG’s newest tablet, the G Pad 8.3, has hit the FCC this week on a course to Verizon’s 4G LTE network. The tablet made a quick stop, showing LTE radios that support bands 4 and 13 (Verizon’s bands) inside and model number VK810, while all other specs and dimensions of the tablet appear to be unchanged. The G Pad 8.3 is also available as a Google Play Edition device as WiFi-only right from Google Play for the price of $349.99. (more…)
