Ok, I am going to keep this brief because I don't expect this deal to last long. In preparation for the imminent release of new Samsung tablets, Best Buy has the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4" 16GB LTE tablet at closeout prices. They are available with either AT&T or Verizon antennas for just $279.99. That's a staggering 220 bucks off retail and 20 dollars less than the Wi-Fi only model on Amazon (which was already a good deal). Read More
Update: both HTC and AT&T have posted changelogs for the update, you can see them here (ATT) and here (HTC).
Ahhh. The feeling of spring. The sun is shining, birds are singing, and flowers are blooming. Read More
ASUS, let's have a talk. I've become accustomed to writing your company name in all caps, despite the fact that it's not an acronym. And I could probably get used to calling a solid if unremarkable line of tablets a "MEMO Pad," again, with no particular rhyme or reason to the combination of uppercase and lowercase. But "MeMO Pad" is where I draw the line. You, your marketing, and I are just going to have to agree to disagree on that lowercase e. Read More
Just about every American carrier is eager to take your pre-order for the new Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, or HTC One M9, but if you prefer to get your phones from Amazon, they'll happily take your money too. Right now it looks like the only way to buy the phones are through the carriers, complete with the various lock-outs on AT&T and Verizon models, but you can purchase them with new contracts, renewed contracts, or contract-free.

Samsung has announced official US availability dates for the Galaxy S6, and they might sound rather familiar. Just like the HTC One M9, you can pre-order the new Galaxy tomorrow (March 27th) and pick one up on April 10th. The exact details will vary by carrier, but already both AT&T and T-Mobile have announced pre-orders for tomorrow. Other carriers haven't announced official details yet, but I expect it won't be long. Read More
What's this? A current-generation AT&T phone and its year-old sibling getting updated on the same day? We have an embarrassment of riches, folks. Just a few hours after the Lollipop over-the-air update for the Galaxy Note 4 started on Ma Bell, the Galaxy Note 3 (from 2013) is getting the same treatment. AT&T's support page says that this is Android 5.0, build number N900AUCUEOC1.
As AT&T does with all their updates, the OTA will only start on Wi-Fi (and not that mobile connection that you're paying them to provide). Read More
Samsung, LG, and HTC are the heavy-hitters in the Android world - you can generally expect their flagship devices to be on almost every American carrier. So it is with HTC's new One M9, which has been confirmed for four out of the five major US carriers right out of the gate. We asked a US Cellular representative if the company planned to offer the One M9 after they confirmed that they'd be carrying Samsung's new S6 and S6 Edge, and were told that it wasn't on the release schedule at the moment.
