Verizon is making the Nexus 7 tablet from Google available for only $49.99 to users willing to sign-up for a 2-year agreement. That may be a good deal for users short on cash, although it is unclear just how much savings, if any, the deal represents. Verizon is also offering the Nexus 7 for $349.99 off contract, the same price that the device can be purchased from Google Play.

If you really want to go through Verizon or want to take advantage of purchasing a Nexus 7 over time via a 2-year contract, hit the source link.

T-Mobile celebrating the anniversary of its 4G LTE with network upgrades and a Verizon attack ad

It has been just a year since T-Mobile announced its 4G LTE network. Since then, T-Mobile has been able to reach more than 200 million people in over 270 metropolitan areas in the United States. To celebrate, the nation’s Un-carrier says they will be upgrading its 2G/EDGE network with the help of 4G LTE. In a company press release, T-Mobile says this “upgrade will provide customers who currently experience 2G/EDGE coverage new access to 4G LTE, and many already covered by 4G LTE will enjoy access to 4G LTE in even more places.” Whenever a carrier decides to expand, consumers always win. Also, T-Mobile plans on completing 50% of this upgrade by the end of 2014.

The other component of this celebration comes from a new lawsuit involving T-Mobile and Verizon. Feeling that Verizon is inaccurately portraying T-Mobile’s coverage map, the Un-carrier is asking that Big Red ceases and desists any advertisements under question.

As we wait to see what Verizon has to say, hit the break for T-Mobile’s new commercial that fights back and the official press release. » Read the rest

Verizon_All_New_HTC_One_Dummy_Unit_Leak_05

With such a frequency of leaks related to the All New HTC One, nothing will be left to look forward to by the time of the announcement of the handset. We saw a plethora of leaks related to the All New HTC One’s dual cameras, body, accessories and even an amazing special flip cover.

Now, a new set of leaked images have surfaced online showing off the All New HTC One with Verizon’s mark branded on the rear of the device. Granted, the images are of a dummy unit, but you wouldn’t know it unless someone told you.

Although HTC might have something more up its sleeves, it seems that nothing else is left that will catch our attention considering that we also saw the new flip cover and dual cameras as well.

Take a look more images right after the break.

According to Verizon it’s a mistake to abandon the subsidized handset model

We’ve seen a number of steps towards moving away from the subsidized phone model from many of the big phone providers in the past couple months. Except Verizon. It seems that Verizon is a little more cautious than their competitors when it comes to making those steps, and instead is focusing on promoting its traditional subsidized plan.

Verizon CFO Fred Shammo today spoke at the Deutsche Bank media conference, giving some insight as to why the company isn’t taking the same steps as other companies. During the conference he mentioned that Verizon believes “that the subsidy model is an extremely good model. It has done wonders for us in this industry. So I think to abandon that is a mistake.” He also said that the companies “Edge” and “More Everything” plans are available due to demand.

The Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 has arrived on Verizon. It’s priced at an enormous $849 outright, or $749 for a two-year contract. Considering its big price tag, it might just make sense to buy the device outright without a contract. Still, Verizon has made the LTE-capable device an option.

The NotePRO 12.2 is powered by a Snapdragon 800 quad-core CPU with 3GB of RAM, and packs a 12.2-inch display with a 2560×1600 resolution. Other specs include 32GB storage, microSD, S-Pen support, a 2MP front camera, 8MP rear camera and a 9500 mAh battery. The device is available straight from Verizon’s website, via the source link below.

Shortly after leaking the AT&T model of HTC’s upcoming flagship smartphone, @evleaks posted Verizon’s. And this time around, the device is in gray. Verizon opted to put its logo on the back of the device like AT&T; however, Big Red also threw in its 4G LTE logo. Also, Verizon’s 4G LTE icon is present in the status bar. Nothing else has changed between this device and the one from the AT&T leak from before. Just stay tuned because there is a very good chance that we see the Sprint or T-Mobile models leak in gold.

The all new HTC One will be announced on March 25 in New York City. » Read the rest

Verizon_Wireless_LogoVerizon took forever to get the Nexus 7, but it seems they will be considerably faster getting the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and LG Pad 8.3. According to a leaked document, the Note Pro 12.2 as well as the Pad 8.3 will arrive for Verizon users in just a few weeks, on March 6.

This obviously isn’t an official document, and things could still change from now until then, but it’s good to see that Verizon seems to have plans to get their users the Note Pro 12.2 within a month of its announcement.
