When Verizon decided to pick up the Motorola Moto G to offer to their customers, they decided to only make it available via one of their prepaid plans. If a 3G smartphone is sufficient for your needs and you are okay with Verizon, then you may want to jump on this latest deal from Amazon. They are offering the Moto G for only $70.

There is no indication how long this deal will be available, but a check of Verizon indicates you can still get it for a Friday delivery if you order by late Thursday afternoon. Hit the source link if you want to check out the offer or place an order.

ATT_PadFone_X_Official_01

The day has finally come folks. An ASUS PadFone will actually be available at a U.S. carrier. It was announced back at CES that AT&T would carry it, but we wondered if they would actually ever release it.

AT&T finally put our worries to sleep by announcing that it will be available starting June 6. You will be able to get it on AT&T Next 18 for $22.92 per month, Next 12 for $29.80 per month, or on a two-year contract for $199. They are also offering a $50 discount on the purchase of the blue or white ASUS two-pack tablet cover and Wireless Charging Folio and Duracell Wireless Charging Mat. That deal will end July 24.  You can see a few quick videos along with the full presser after the break.

LG G3 carrier information for the United States

LG_G3_front_back_official

With today’s announcement of the LG G3, we also get information as to what carriers in the United States are making this LG handset available. Long story short: each of the ‘Big Four’ are going to carry the LG G3. For now, we have information from all but AT&T.

Two carriers, T-Mobile and Sprint, have gone live with per-registration pages. This page not only alerts you when the device will become available for pre-order, but also enters you into a contest to win an LG G3. T-Mobile will be giving away a ‘Beta model’ each day through June 29 and Sprint just says it has twenty units up for grabs. While T-Mobile did not say anything regarding an expected arrival, Sprint says July 2014. Sprint is going to be the exclusive provider of the Shine Gold color as well. Verizon, on the other hand, is simply pegging a summer release.

HTC will come through with its promise of 2 years of support to One (M7) owners this week — the device will be updated to Sense 6 this week.

Unlocked and developer editions of the device were updated last week, and the T-Mobile variant followed shortly after. It appears that Verizon is preparing to send out the update this week.

LG G3 for Sprint press render leaks in two colors

sprint_lg_g3_leak_titanium

Near the end of last week, we had a look at the Verizon version of the LG G3. With that version, the carrier added some heavy branding along with an alteration to the front panel. Today’s leak of the LG G3 for Sprint shows no changes whatsoever.

As far as I can tell, the only thing indicating this is Sprint would be the LTE icon. That is nowhere near as intrusive as Verizon’s branding. Also, Sprint did not change the entire front panel to be black. Instead, the bottom of it will be identical to the back panel. So it seems that the carrier-manufacturer war is nonexistent here. Although, we are going to assume there will be bloatware.

Hit the break to see the gold variant. » Read the rest

LG G3 for Verizon sign up page appears unofficially, ready to go for Tuesday

verizon_lg_g3_sign_up_leak

We know that HTC was one of the few to master a same-day announcement/release. For the people hoping that LG would somehow do the same, it does not seem so. A sign up page for the LG G3 for Verizon appeared on the carrier’s testman site. This page is reserved for devices that will soon make their way to the official site. The only thing we see here is that the handset is “Coming soon.” What we do know about Verizon’s G3 variant is that it will be stamped with a decent amount of carrier branding.

Comcast may be another company eyeing a bid for T-Mobile

Comcast

We’re still dealing with Comcast’s proposed merger with Time Warner, and it looks like the cable giant is considering making a bid for T-Mobile, too. Analysts seem to believe that with AT&T buying DirecTV, the pressure that will be put on Comcast to match video delivery will finally tip them into jumping into the wireless industry. In the short term, Comcast may pursue WiFi-MNVO deals, such as reselling Verizon airspace. Long-term, though, that’s not going to be very profitable for a company as large as Comcast, which is where purchasing T-Mobile comes in. » Read the rest
