dell_venue_8_pic_02

If you have had your eye on the Dell Venue 8 7000, now might be a good chance to grab one. Best Buy has it on sale for $369.99 ($30 off), plus they are giving you a bonus. That would be 1 year of Microsoft Office 365 Personal, which is a $69.99 value. On top of all this, they are including Free shipping.

The Office 365 subscription will include one PC or Mac plus one iPad or Select Windows Tablet. I am hoping they failed to mention Android in the notes since Microsfot Office is now available on Android tablets.

radioshack_logo

After struggling to find any sort of success in recent years, RadioShack has officially filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The entire process includes plenty of moves and changes for various parties. General Wireless, a subsidiary of Standard General, will absorb most of RadioShack’s assets and existing leases for retail stores. Most notably, Sprint has agreed to move into approximately 1,750 stores across the country. It will allow Sprint to have a store-within-a-store setup. The agreement provides Sprint with around a third a retail space within the co-branded stores. While Sprint, Boost Mobile, and Virgin Mobile have primary branding on marketing materials, other carriers and products will continue to be sold.

Bankruptcy looming for RadioShack, Sprint may purchase stores

radioshack_logo

RadioShack is nearly one hundred years old, but that does not mean it is guaranteed to hit the milestone. The last few years have been especially difficult for the electronics retailer and now it seems that a bankruptcy filing is on the way. To combat bankruptcy and gain some cash, RadioShack is working to sell some of its stores to Sprint. The carrier, who has also had its fair share of troubles recently, would be able to expand with the takeover of many leases belonging to RadioShack. Sprint has been very open about expanding through retail stores; therefore, it is not shocking to hear of interest in RadioShack locations.

Huawei Honor 6 Plus now available internationally

huawei_honor_6_plus_camera_revolution_marketing

Last month Huawei introduced the Honor 6 Plus, a follow-up device to the Honor 6 that was released earlier in the year. The Honor 6 Plus bumped up the screen size to a 5.5-inch display compared to the Honor 6’s 5.0-inch display. When initially released, Huawei was only making the device available in the Chinese market. Now, buyers outside of China have a chance to get the Honor 6 Plus for $399 thanks to Oppomart which is selling an unlocked version.

The $399 that you shell out for the Honor 6 Plus will get you a 16 GB version that does support 4G LTE. The main caveat is that you have to want a white phone as that is the only color that is currently available. Along with the 5.5-inch 1080p full HD screen and support for 4G LTE, Huawei gave the device an octa-core Kirin CPU running at 1.8 GHz, 3 GB of RAM, and the dual 8 MP camera setup particular to the Honor devices. Huawei also gave the device their Emotion UI on top of Android 4.4.

If you want to check out the Huawei Honor 6 Plus or even place an order, hit the source link to start the process.
