Expansys has fired up a promotion on Google Play Edition devices as part of an apparent effort to clear out some stock. If you don’t mind a device that may be a generation behind the current flagships and have been looking for the experience of a GPE device, this is something you will certainly want to check out.
Online retailer Expansys has officially made the newly announced HTC One available for pre-order through their website. Expansys is offering unlocked HTC One models with 32 GB or 64 GB of storage along with either black or silver colors for £520. Of course that is a pretty hefty cost for a device, but if you’re dying to be one of the first to get your hands on HTC’s new stunning flagship device, click the source to head on over to Expansys website where you can pre-order your device today.
Before a phone comes out, we always have a bit of fun with accidental preorders and some leaked product pages. UK retailer Expansys kicked off this morning with an attractive price point of £399.99 ($643.70) for the newly unveiled Sony Xperia Z. This was quite a bit lower than the other preorders we’ve seen, but hey, you certainly wouldn’t complain about saving money, right? Unfortunately, that price was too good to be true, and Expansys has pulled the price back up in line with other retailers to £529.99, or $852.91. Unfortunately, they’re only listing the black color of the Experia Z, and there’s no official release date. Still, though, it’s good to see some preorders, because that means official availability can’t be too far off, and I’m sure I’m not the only one excited to get their hands on one of these monsters.
From the first sketches, to the leaked brochures, it looks like the international unlocked HTC One X+ is ready to pre-order online for the US. Thanks to online electronics retailer, Expansys USA, people who have been waiting and craving for the release of the One X+ will finally be able to put some money down.
Since Expansys just recently put the device on their website, it doesn’t look like there is a set price just yet, showing the “Price Not Announced” tag description. By pre-ordering, it means you will be first in line when they do announce the price. As a reminder, the specs are as follows:
- 1.7 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 Processor
- 1GB of RAM memory
- 64GB of internal storage
- NFC Support
- 4.7 inch super LCD 2 touch screen with a 720p resolution
- Size of: 134.36 x 69.9 x 8.9mm
- 2100mAh battery
- 8.0MP rear camera
- 1.6MP front-facing camera
- HSPA+ connection in Europe (US version with LTE)
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, with HTC Sense
The Galaxy S III is undoubtedly one of the most powerful smartphones manufactured. With the international version featuring a quad-core Exynos processor, it is hard not to love. In addition, Samsung creatively gave consumers a variety of different color choices including blue, white, and the infamous garnet red.
The blue and white models have made up the majority of Galaxy S III sales, while the garnet red color has been very limited. Unfortunately, due to AT&T’s agreement with Samsung Mobile, the premier color was exclusively sold through their network only. This was kind of a let down for fans who craved the red design.
Earlier this year, Acer unveiled their CloudMobile Smartphone. Now, the phone is finally up for pre-orders starting today over in the UK. Expansys, the popular mobile online retailer, is offering the Cloudmobile SIM-free and unlocked for £284.99 ($447.21). The price definitely isn’t too bad for what you’re getting:
- Android 4.0
- On-screen buttons
- 720p 4.3-inch display
- 1.5GHz dual-core processor
- 1GB RAM and 8GB on board storage
- 8MP rear shooter with LED flash
For those that decide to jump on this pre-order, you can expect Expansys to begin shipping the device on September 5th.
For all of you in the UK who were interested in Samsung‘s lumen projector smarphone combo, the Galaxy Beam is now in stock on Expansys website for £394.99. Just to recap, the G Beam will boast a 15 lumens pico projector, practically allowing users to walk around with a 50-inch screen TV in their pocket, or so Samsung says. The smartphone side will bring a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 5 MP rear-facing camera and 1 GB of RAM.
The concept is pretty cool, I have to admit, however it will be difficult for many to see this device as anything else past a social gimmick. The specs are good, but not as great as Samsung’s latest release, the GSIII, which will make adoption of the G Beam quite challenging. Who here is thinking about biting the bullet and snagging up one of these? If so, what real world applications do you have in mind for such a device?
If you’re itching to be the first on your block with a shiny new Galaxy S III, then look no further than Expansys import web shop. Of course this GSIII will only be able to work on T-Mobile and AT&T here in the U.S. but you can now pre-order one for a sizable wad of cash to the amount of $694.99 plus shipping. If you ask me, that’s a lot of laundry money to shell out just to be one of the first to show off Sammy’s latest and greatest Android smartphone, especially because we know that Samsung intends to release the phone in the U.S. later this summer. So is anyone thinking about pulling the trigger on this one? Does being the early bird in technology trump the lack of certain features like LTE? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
The Panasonic Eluga is now available unlocked via Expansys. Back in February right around Mobile World Congress time we posted an article about this water-resistant device. Stating that it was a very sleek, eye pleasing phone, but it left many visitors to the booth less than impressed. The Eluga is powered by a TI OMAP 4430 CPU. Specs also including a 4.3-inch qHD display, 1Gb RAM, 8Gb internal storage, and Gingerbread 2.3.5, with plans to upgrade to ICS.
This GSM device may not appeal to those state-side as it only runs on 2100MHz and 900MHz bands, which would only get you a decent 3G signal. As mentioned, it can be purchased unlocked at Expansys, at the price of £369 or $590 in the US. If you do purchase the Panasonic Eluga, let us know your thoughts on it in the comments.
Just this past Tuesday we published an article that the Play Store is now selling the Galaxy Nexus unlocked and void of contract for $399. Awesome deal right? We are now noticing that offers like this are spreading outside the Google domain. Here we have found that Expansys is also selling the Gnex unlocked and without contract for $399.99. The kicker here is that unlike the purchase you can make in the Play Store, Expansys is offering free shipping. So you could save a few bucks. You’ll also have the option to bundle the phone with a Simple Mobile plan if you are so inclined. Of course, you can just purchase the device and activate it on carriers like T-Mobile or AT&T.
So as with most device, as the weeks go by we continue to find the deals and the prices continue to drop. If you have the self-control, for one you are better than me, and second, you may stumble upon that perfect deal that will get this Galaxy nexus into your hands.
