Now is a great time to be an AT&T customer in the market for a new smartphone. The carrier is running a promotion that includes the option to bring home an LG G Pad 7.0 for $0.99 when purchasing any smartphone. For the smartphone, customers must be using the AT&T Next program while the tablet requires the signing of a new two-year contract.

Both AT&T’s website and retail stores are offering the bundle; however, only select retail stores are going to take advantage of it. Online, add the smartphone to your cart and then add the G Pad 7.0 to see the $0.99 price.

AT&T has not specified an end date for the promotion, but the carrier does say that the bundle will be unavailable once it runs out of G Pad 7.0 units to sell.

The original Galaxy Note was introduced in 2011 with a 5.3-inch display. Now, there are many devices matching or even besting that size. Everything just keeps getting bigger. The Galaxy Note 4, which was released in October, shipped with a 5.7-inch display. There has yet to be any viable threat to the Galaxy Note series, but LG seems to have something to say about that.

LG announced the G Pro handset in February last year as a rival offering to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

Reports are now indicating that poor sales of the series has forced LG to scrap the G Pro lineup altogether and focus more on the upcoming flagship, the LG G4. Read more

Snapdragon 810 could cause delays for both the Samsung Galaxy S 6 and LG G4

Companies only get one or two shots each year for flagship devices so they want to make sure they utilize the best specs available at the time. For next year’s devices, that means the Snapdragon 810, which is Qualcomm’s first 64-bit octa-core processor.

The early consensus was that the 810 wasn’t going to be available till June of next year, so I really didn’t think Samsung and LG would include it in the Galaxy S 6 and G4, but according to a report out of Business Korea, both companies are trying to utilize the said chip.
