Verizon Galaxy Nexus Battery Cover and Battery Show Up on Samsung’s Website

tagged , , , , , , , , ,

A few days ago we noticed that Verizon retail stores started to receive a couple different cases already for the Galaxy Nexus. Well, today we are seeing that Samsung has now even added replacement batteries and battery covers onto their website as well.

Earlier in the month we had a little bit of hope that the actual device would carry as little branding as possible. Based on the pictures from Samsung’s website, we see that Verizon has added their obnoxious logo on top of the previously pictured 4G LTE emblem putting all wishful thinking to a rest. At least the screen is beautifully vacant though, right? Now only if we had an official release date! These new website additions leads me to believe that the wait is finally almost over. Are you ready?

Galaxy Nexus Accessories Already Showing Up in Verizon Stores

tagged , , , ,

It’s really a shame that Verizon hasn’t given us a Galaxy Nexus launch date yet, leaving us to only go off of speculation. We have heard a bunch of different rumors surrounding the device’s launch: November 10, 17, 21 and as late as sometime after black Friday. Which is it Big Red? Your starting to piss a few of us off already. This launch should be epic. One that goes down in history. Instead they are just sitting back for some reason, watching all the speculation, all the while brick and mortar stores are receiving shipments of accessories! You read correctly, accessories already!

Reports are showing images of Galaxy Nexus cases showing up in Verizon’s retail stores. There is a case with kickstand/holster combo and a silicon cover that has arrived in-store before they have even announced the official release date. It’s gonna be hard to sell a Galaxy Nexus case without a damn phone to put in it! So please Verizon, cut us some slack here and give us some kind of release date! We have been patient for a good while now.

Whether you’ve already ordered the new Motorola Droid RAZR or you’re still doing a little window-shopping on it before you make any commitments, you’re fancy will surely be tickled by a newly leaked accessory pricing sheet for the device. Accessories include a standard HDMI Dock for $59.99, navigation windows mount for $39.99 and rugged MotoACTV fitness watch starting at $249.97 (with 8GB). Note that the watch is available as “direct fill launch”, meaning you must order the item directly from Verizon as they won’t be made available in stores; the same goes for their Lapdock 500, which you can snag for $299.97 by the way.

Hit the break for the full DROID RAZR accessory price sheet.

Capta: The Answer To All Of Your Phone Accessory Needs

by Andrew Greenfield on
tagged , ,

For those of you that live and die with the accessories you buy for your phone, you’ve problem come to a rather annoying discovery: Every time you get a new phone or upgrade you find yourself buying new accessories. Whether it’s a car mount, a tripod for you picture savvy types, or whatever, Capta means to replace that. Capta works by being the perfect dock for your phone. As long as your phone has a flat back (or close to one), your device can stick to Capta. And by stick, I mean stick stick. You can see some of their demonstration videos at their site here, and it has the best grip I’ve ever seen. It leaves no residue on your phone either. Any accessory with a 1/4-20 stud (which is pretty standard) is compatible. It’s difficult to explain all the things Capta can do in words, so why don’t you go check out the demos over at their website!

Samsung Galaxy Nexus accessories start to appear online

by Robert Nazarian on
tagged , , , , , , , , ,

To me it’s never a big deal when accessories start appearing online for unreleased devices because it generally just confirms that we know the device exists and that’s about it. Well, the multimedia dock (EDD-H1F8BEG) and vehicle mount (ECS-K1F8BEG) for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has surfaced online at Cartronics. Take a look at the release date which says November 21. Usually accessories like this are released at the same time as the device so if this is correct, we won’t see the Galaxy Nexus until November 21. We have been hoping for November 10, but those MAP dates are not always spot one are they?

Official HTC Rezound (aka Vigor) image shows up along with hard shell case

by Robert Nazarian on
tagged , , , ,

We are hoping to get our hands on the HTC Rezound (aka Vigor) on November 10, but for now we have this beautiful image that shows off this beast along with its hard shell case accessory. It was originally rumored to drop in October, and on the device’s home screen you will see October 4 which probably means that it might have been the original release date. Maybe it had something to do with the iPhone? Either way, we are looking forward to November because we have this one to go along with the Galaxy Nexus and DROID RAZR. We will have some great choices for our holiday shopping this year. What’s on your wish list for this year?

Verizon Lists Recommended Accessories for “Vigor By HTC”

by Justin Routhier on
tagged , , , , , , ,

It’s rare that recommendations from Verizon for generic accessories like their Bluetooth headset and portable power pack can make much news at all, but what’s newsworthy here is that they come as recommendations for the “Vigor By HTC”. Rumors for the official name of this device have been anything but scarce, with guesses including the Droid Incredible HD and HTC Rezound as recent as earlier this week. No “official” announcement for a launch accompanies Verizon’s recommendation web pages, however the fact that they are setup at all is quite telling don’t you think?

Verizon and Motorola haven’t made it official yet, but the above image pretty much does. We knew it was going to be September 8th for a while now, but it is nice to finally know for sure.

The below image also confirms Costco will be launching the same day. We already reported that Costco will have an accessory bonus pack which makes me wish there was a one in my area.

Samsung Already Sporting Accessories For US Galaxy S II Devices

by Joe Sirianni on
tagged , , , , , ,

Low and behold, what’s a few new Samsung Galaxy S II devices across various carriers without some cool accessories to go with it?  At tonight’s Samsung GSII launch event in New York, several of the display tables showed off a modern and sleek looking multimedia charging dock perfectly complimenting the Galaxy S II.  In nice shiny black, the device also doubles as a speaker (note pic below).  We’ve seen a dock presently accompany the Galaxy S II launched overseas however, this one has been given a bit of a polished look and we’ve got to admit, it looks pretty sweet.  Check out the pics for yourself and don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below.  If you’ll also notice, there is another device to the left of the charging dock.  We’re not quite sure what it is just yet, but stay tuned because we’ll find out.  It appears to be some sort of a charging stand where a second battery can be docked under a cover on the backside of the contraption.

Separate stand and adapters show up for ASUS Eee Pad Transformer

by Harold Williams on
tagged , , , , ,

Engadget has reported that individual adapters for the Eee Pad Transformer have popped up on Amazon Germany.  Laying down the $150 for a docking station certainly will make this device more like a notebook, but having a dock at both home and the office might be a pricy venture.

The individual USB and SD adapters are €19 ($27) each. There is also a stand with a USB port, SD slot, and a headphone jack that will run you €29 ($41). This doesn’t seem too costly to have a nice stand at your office where your tablet may not be used as much as home or vice versa.

The disheartening part is there may be a long wait. It’s listed on Amazon that these adapters will ship anywhere from one to three months from now. While I don’t think these individual connecters should replace a dock, it’s certainly a cheaper alternative if you can’t afford a dock in multiple places.
