[Deal] Pick up an HTC Droid DNA on Verizon for $149.99 from Amazon Wireless

It’s safe to say HTC’s Droid DNA is the top pick for a high-end handset on Verizon, but its $200 price point may have seemed a bit steep for the average customer. Well, Amazon appears to have taken this into account and has subsequently shaved $50 off of the initial price. This means customers can pick up the device for just $149.99 with a new two-year commitment.

The offer is good for both new and existing customers eligible for upgrades. Currently, however, the device is listed as being backordered, and won’t ship for 1-2 weeks. If waiting isn’t an issue, interested parties can hit the source link below to get their unit ordered.

Motorola to close dedicated websites for some markets

 

Not too long ago Motorola reported they were going to be downsizing a bit after Google bought them. Looks like some of that downsizing is going to come in the form of website consolidation in other countries. This basically means that you’ll be redirected to a server in another country when you try to visit a Motorola site if you’re on the list to lose the dedicated website.

Motorola sent an email stating that “India, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Israel, the rest of Asia, the rest of Europe, Middle East & Africa” would be closing down. Most of these countries are places where Motorola is only a minor competitor, but it’s still sad to see that support dropped regardless. Hopefully this won’t affect Motorola Android sales in those countries too negatively.

Nexus 10 available once again through the Play Store in both storage options

Following a brief stint in the Play Store, Samsung and Google’s 32GB Nexus 10 sold out in record time, later superseded by the attenuated 16GB model. Well, after taking a trip to the Play Store, it seems as though Google has managed to roll out another batch of the 10-inch slates, as both variants are showing up with the option “add to cart.”

There’s no telling how long they’ll be available for, so if you’re interested it’d be wise to act fast. Are you planning on picking one up?

Pandigital Officially Out Of Business, Does Not Plan On Honoring Existing Warranties In The Process

 

And another Android manufacturer bites the dust. Pandigital is a brand that may not be so familiar with most of you, but it’s a brand with a solid legion of customers. Despite its solid following, it had unfortunately succumbed to the dreary economy and signed most of its assets to creditors in order to better cope with its massive debt. During this transitional phase, there was slim hope that the company would at least try and offer support and warranties for its various products out there, but alas— it isn’t meant to be. Customers of various Pandigital products recently received the following email:

 

“You are receiving this email as you have recently been shipped a warranty replacement for a Pandigital product.

Please be advised that Pandigital, Inc (the ‘Company’), executed a General Assignment for the benefit of its creditors in favor of Credit Management Association on July 13, 2012 (the ‘General Assignment’). A general assignment is a common law means of concluding the affairs of an insolvent debtor as an alternative to the Chapter 7 bankruptcy process. Pandigital is currently in the process of liquidation by the Assignee.

Due to this liquidation process any further requests for warranty replacements cannot be honored”.

 

So there you have it— there’s basically no support for the device moving forward which is a bummer. Hopefully most of you who happen to own a Pandigital product have already moved onto other alternatives like the Amazon Kindle Fire HD or Nexus 7 tablet in order to help get over the hopefully minor grief.
