As many Nexus 4 customers are being forced to wait until 2013 to get their hands on the new device, eBay has found it necessary to impose sales restrictions on the stock Android 4.2 smartphone. The online retailer usually warrants these types of restrictions to prevent fraudulent listings from being posted, most often for items that have overwhelming demand. » Read the rest
Two months ago Amazon began accepting submissions from developers for its up-and-coming Japanese Appstore launch. Today Amazon has flipped the switch and the Japanese branch of its Appstore is now available for any of our friends across the sea to get their download on. Japan has always been known for its love for technology, so if you’re a developer you may want to consider submitting your app to this newly opened market, as it could be a great source of additional revenue.
If you’d like to see the Japanese Appstore, or learn how to submit an app, hit our source link below.

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.
As Verizon continues its quest to becoming the
most imposing largest 4G LTE network in all the land, it continues to expand coverage in many areas and markets of the country. Verizon has announced that it has expanded coverage in 4 New York state markets, which gives even more Verizon customers the opportunity to enjoy topnotch data speeds. The markets slated for enhanced coverage are Poughkeepsie, Binghamton, Greene County and Utica-Rome.
Rob Nazarian and I got a chance to see the special device in person during its launch last week and now friends, the time has come for all customers to finally get their hands on what is undoubtedly one of the hottest devices of 2012. Verizon is officially unleashing the HTC DROID DNA in both its stores and online today. The latest entry in Verizon’s DROID line features a quad-core processor, 2 gigs of RAM, Jelly Bean and of course the whopping, but gorgeous 1080p Super LCD3 display. Interested parties can snag the device either from their local Verizon store or order online for $199.99 on-contract or a not-too-bad $599.99 off-contract price.
Be sure to stay with us and be on the lookout for our detailed review of the device, but in the meantime– why not check out our hands-on in order to remind yourself of how awesome this puppy is?

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?

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.

Want a great phone at a great price? Amazon Wireless is offering LG’s new flagship phone, the Optimus G, for only $99 when you upgrade or open a new account with either AT&T or Sprint. That is $100 cheaper than what you would pay if you bought it from the carriers.
To review, the LG Optimus G sports a 4.7-inch (1280 x 768) IPS LCD display at 318ppi, 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (Sprint) /16GB of storage (AT&T), microSD slot (AT&T), 13MP rear camera (Sprint) / 8MP rear camera (AT&T), 1.3MP front camera, 2100mAh battery, and Android Ice Cream Sandwich. That is a lot of bang that you’re getting for your buck.
We don’t know how long this sale will last, so if you’re in the running for a new phone on either AT&T or Sprint, you might want to act fast!

As the big day gets closer, we’ve started covering more and more Black Friday deals. And today we’ve got more deals for those of you on Verizon or looking to make the switch to Verizon this year. Their Black Friday ad lists a unique cranberry colored Droid RAZR (not the RAZR HD) for free on a two-year contract. This is pretty similar to last year’s red Incredible 2 Black Friday offering. Not a bad deal if you want something to stand out and don’t need the latest, greatest tech. » Read the rest
