Earlier today we reported on Google’s plans to add a mid-tier smartphone as a choice for consumers based on feedback they had been receiving. In their tweet announcing plans to add a new device, Project Fi was very vague only indicating it would be “from one of our partners.” A new report from Evan Blass via Venture Beat says the device will be the forthcoming Motorola Moto X4.
Xfinity Mobile added a new device to their portfolio of smartphones available for consumers signing up for the wireless service. The LG X Charge is aimed at users who really do not like to hook up their phone to a charger thanks to the massive 4,500mAh battery. According to LG’s Chang Ma, President of LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A., Inc., “the LG X Charge was designed to meet the demands of users who want maximum usage from their smartphones between charges, paired with the advanced flagship features they care about most, like a large HD screen.”

Verizon is no stranger to snagging exclusive deals with tablets for their customers, and it seems like they’re going to pad out their portfolio in 2017 with the ASUS ZenPad Z8, according to a leaked press image from Evan Blass.
Remember earlier this year when Sprint bought a stake in Tidal? Well, that’s finally turning into a decent promotion for Sprint customers, as they’re going to get exclusive streaming rights to Jay-Z’s new album 4:44 when it drops next week.
One of the great pains of traveling in Europe has been the often exorbitant charges that networks charge just for the privilege of using one’s own SIM card in a different country. Thankfully, except for a few bit part players, the European Commission has forced networks to abolish roaming charges when you are using traveling within the EU so long as you are using a SIM card issued in Europe, which means you can ‘Roam Like at Home‘.
