Yesterday’s big LG G3 announcement did lack a few details on pricing and availability, but we finally have a little more info for you. Clove in the UK has started pre-orders for the G3 at £499 for the 2GB RAM/16GB storage version, which is pretty darn good. However, shipments won’t start until July 1. You will have your choice of Metallic Black, Silk White, or Shine Gold. Who is jumping in?

LG G3 carrier information for the United States

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

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

Buy an HTC One (M8) through AT&T and get $50 off a Fitbit Flex or Fitbit One

HTC One 2014 Press render

If you’re thinking about picking up a new HTC One (M8), now’s a good time to do it. AT&T is offering $50 off either a Fitbit One or a Fitbit Flex when customers purchase a new HTC One, cutting half of the price off of both fitness trackers. As a side note, AT&T points out that their version of the HTC One (M8) is the only model in the US to come preloaded with the Fitbit application.

If you remember from HTC’s M8 reveal, the Fitbit integrates very well with the HTC One, showing your progress and achievements in BlinkFeed, which is a nice touch. The One is obviously not the only device that works with Fitbit devices, but it’s definitely an attractive option, especially with this deal.

Here comes the Galaxy S 5 Active. This image, providing a very straightforward look of the device, belongs to the AT&T version. It matches the design of the recently-leaked GS5 Active video and images. This image confirms that it will be launching on AT&T and now we await any indication that Sprint will be carrying this handset. » Read the rest

LG G3 for Verizon press render leaks, Big Red’s stamp is on the front once again

With just four days left until its May 27 announcement, there are bound to be some last-minute LG G3 leaks. Here, courtesy of @evleaks, we have a look at the first carrier-branded press render of the handset. As you can tell by the rather blatant branding, this is the Verizon version.

Like with the LG G2, Big Red has literally put its mark all over. On the back is the Verizon name with their 4G LTE logo. On the front is, again, the Verizon logo crammed in the top right corner. The carrier’s 4G LTE icon is present, but that is not a big deal whatsoever. And it looks like we will have some bloatware as the display is showing Verizon’s official messaging application. It is understandable that carriers add some of their own branding, but cluttering the front panel is a little much. Another catch worth mentioning is that this front panel is all black while previous G3 leaks show a mixed front depending upon the color variant. » Read the rest
