We’ve been all waiting to hear when we can finally get our hands on the LG G3 for Verizon, and now we finally know. We not only have availability information, but also pricing and launch date.
Samsung has announced the Samsung Galaxy Tab S will be available for purchase at major retailers starting June 27th. Some of the retailers include Samsung.com, Amazon, Best Buy, and Sears. However, Best Buy is the only location that has units available on the sales floor at Samsung Experience Shops for consumers to spend some hands on time with the devices before placing a pre-order or next week’s general availability.
The WiFi version of the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 will sell for $399.99 while the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 will go for $499.99. Both versions will be available in either dazzling white or titanium bronze.
Samsung indicates LTE versions of the tablets will be available later this year on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.
We have heard so many rumors regarding an Amazon smartphone, we were thinking it was just an urban legend. Today is a different story as Amazon finally announced their very own smartphone, not surprisingly called the Fire Phone.
It sports a 4.7-inch IPS LCD HD (1280 x 720) display, a 2.2GHz quad-core processor, Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, 13MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and OIS, and dual stereo speakers. It also features a dedicated camera shutter button, Gorilla Glass 3, a rubber frame, aluminum buttons, and injection-molded steel connectors. Amazon will even throw in tangle-free earbuds in the box.
Brace yourself — prepare to be annoyed. Or not.

Well, unfortunately for you, Samsung has a new “next big thing,” just two months after it released the last one. Disappointed? Confused? Furious? Don’t be, because fortunately for you, the device will be exclusive to South Korea.

Now that the Galaxy Tab S is officially outed, we’ll start to see an outpouring of accessories for the device.
First up is an offering from Logitech — it’s called the Logitech Type-S, specifically made for the Tab S. It’s Bluetooth enabled, has well-spaced keys, has Android shortcuts and versatile viewing positions. The battery is pretty impressive, as it can last up to 3 months on a single charge. It’s also water-repellant.
The keyboard will go on sale later this month in the U.S., Europe and select countries in Asia for a suggested retail price of $99.99. Hit the break for the presser.
This can’t be good. Some might have foreseen a blip in sales for Samsung’s Galaxy S5, but not many people may have expected this.
According to reports from Taiwan, Samsung has cut its supply chain orders on the Galaxy S5 by 25% for this quarter (Q3 2014). 21 million units were put on order last quarter while 15 million were ordered this quarter.
Cricket Wireless, AT&T’s subsidiary for prepaid mobile services, will be offering the mid-range LG L70 for $49.99 with a $50 mail-in rebate this Friday. The rebate will be in the form of a Cricket Visa Promotion Card.
Hit the break for specs on the device.
T-Mobile announced this morning that in a new partnership deal with Walmart, the wholesale corporation will be offering a few low-cost tablets which will come with ‘free data for life’ from T-Mobile.
Granted, the ‘free data’ only includes up to 200MB/month, it’s still a solid deal given it’s ‘free.’ Hit the break for details on each tablet and alternative data plans.
Earlier this week when images surfaced of a blue HTC One (M8) we wondered whether it might be a Best Buy exclusive or whether other retailers would get a chance at carrying it. At least in the U.K. that question has been partially answered after the blue version of HTC’s flagship showed up on the MobileFun website for pre-order.
The blue HTC One (M8) is listed for £549.99 ($924 USD) for the 16GB version, which is the same price as other colors of the smartphone. No availability or shipping date is provided though.
