Thinking about jumping to Verizon and want the DROID MAXX by Motorola? Look no further than getting setup through Amazon. The online retailer is offering the device for just $12.49 when you create new account. But you’re going to have to pay more if you want to add the device on a new line or via an upgrade. New lines cost $70 and an upgrade is $100. None of those prices are bad, especially considering what you can do in the 48 hours that the device’s battery lasts for.

According to Russian Blogger Eldar Murtazin, Microsoft is offering Samsung $1 billion to support their Windows Phone operating system by manufacturing devices. As we all know, Samsung is the leading Android OEM by a landslide. But on the Windows Phone front, Microsoft is struggling to have a company come forward that isn’t Nokia (who may be releasing a device based on Android). Nokia was involved in something similar with Microsoft when Steve Ballmer and the guys up in Redmond decided to pay more than $250 million every quarter to keep the Finnish manufacturer with Windows Phone. Samsung likes to spread its name, so escalating Windows Phone production wouldn’t be out of the ordinary.
Since the holidays are rolling around and plenty of pictures are being shared, cloud.tv is holding a sale for the premium version of their Dayframe app. But there’s a catch. The first 1,000 installs will be priced at $0.99 and then it will raise to $2.99. And after the sale is over, Dayframe Prime will carry a $4.99 price tag. In case you’re wondering, Dayframe turns your Android device into a photo frame. It cycles through images from all of your social networks as your device sits idle.
This premium version gives you options for screensaver, brightness, and app timers while also placing weather updates into slideshows. And down the road, clout.tv plans to add syncing between devices.

The HTC One is now available directly through HTC with interest-free financing.

If you are friends with or even a family member of a T-Mobile employee in the company’s Northeast region and need a new smartphone, next Wednesday may be a good time to strike a deal. T-Mobile has indicated they will be conducting a special event on Wednesday, December 11th, that will let buyers get a new device with no money down and the first month of service, up to $50, will be free.
In order to take advantage of the offer, the customer will have to supply a T-Mobile employee’s P# or C# and name at the point of sale. T-Mobile’s information indicates the zero money down offer will only apply to “selected devices” although no list has been provided yet. T-Mobile’s participation requirements indicate the offer will only apply to new activations of voice or at least a 2.5GB mobile Internet plan, although several lines can be added at once.
It appears T-Mobile’s Northeast region covers Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.
If you are on Verizon’s carrier network, or want to be, and would like an LG G2 that is a little bit different from what everyone else has, you can now order the device in white. As if the excitement of probably being the first on the block with a white LG G2 were not enough for you, LG is also offering the device for free with a 2-year contract activation. You can also opt to get it for $20.90 per month using the Verizon Edge program or pay full price of $499.99 to get it off contract. Sweetening the deal even further, not only on the white LG G2 but on any device, Verizon is waiving the normal $35 activation fee through the end of the day today.
As the clock ticks down to Cyber Monday, buyers looking to get a jump on the deals may want to check out some specials Amazon is running on several MOGA gaming devices. The base MOGA is currently listed at $14.99, which is 50% off the normal price of $29.99. The successor to the MOGA, the MOGA Hero Power, is also on sale for $45.91 compared to a normal price of $59.99, just shy of 25% off.
Amazon also had the upgraded version of the original MOGA, the MOGA Pro on sale, but it appears they have sold out of the devices. Currently, they only list the MOGA Pro as being available from third-party suppliers, with the cheapest price being $65.00. Meanwhile, the MOGA Pro Power, the updated version of the MOGA Pro, will set you back the full price of $79.99.
