Verizon "More Everything" Launches Tomorrow - Increased Data Caps, Lower Prices For Edge Subscribers, Faster Network Speeds, And More

The big US carriers are currently falling all over themselves to tweak their plan offerings to be more competitive with each other. After changing the upgrade window of its Edge plans last month, Verizon is now preparing to offer more data on some plans, reduced prices for Edge customers, and more.

The More Everything campaign starts tomorrow, and we've got the promotional material sent out to representatives. The 500MB, 1GB, and 2GB Share Everything plans are getting boosted to 1GB, 2GB and 3GB caps. Edge customers are also seeing a price break of $10 for plans on 8GB or less of data, and $20 for 10GB or more.

Report: Sprint Prepares To JUMP On The EDGE Of The NEXT Bandwagon With "One Up" Yearly Upgrades

Play it again, Sprint. Now that T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon have all started accelerated upgrade programs with monthly charges (Jump, NEXT, and EDGE, respectively), Sprint wants in on the action. According to some leaked screenshots posted by Cnet, the last of the "Big Four" American carriers is planning a similar program called One Up. The plan has not been confirmed by Sprint, but the screenshot below looks genuine.

Stop me if you've heard this before: under the One Up plan, customers would pay no money down and spread the cost of a new phone over 24 monthly payments added on to their regular phone bill.

Despite Record-Breaking Crowdfunding, Ubuntu Edge Smartphone Falls Almost $20 Million Short Of Goal

After an eye-popping pitch for a futuristic, dual-booting smartphone-desktop hybrid, the Ubuntu Edge secured the world record for crowdfunding on August 15th, with $10,266,845 pledged. It's since been boosted up to $12.8 million, but unfortunately, that's a far cry from the $32 million that the Canonical company asked for. The Indiegogo campaign has failed, no sponsors will be charged, and no money will be collected.

Say what you will about Canonical and founder Mark Shuttleworth's outlandish goal, but the conceptual hardware and software for the Ubuntu Edge is the stuff that smartphone dreams are made of. A unibody chamfered metal housing, a synthetic sapphire screen, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage are among its highlights.

Verizon's 'Edge' Is Official – New Payment Plan Options Start On August 25th

At this point, we've all heard of T-Mobile's JUMP! program, designed to let customers upgrade smartphones up to twice-yearly. And not to be outdone by T-Mo, AT&T announced its variant of the plan, dubbed Next. Of course, Verizon has its own thing going on, too – Edge. Up to this point, we've only seen leaks that allude to Edge's existence, but Big Red finally took the wraps off and made it official this morning.

Here's the basic gist: when you buy a phone on Edge, you won't need to sign a contract – it's a month-to-month deal. The full retail price of the phone will then be divided up over a 24 month period (you know, it's kind of like a two-year contract), so you'll effectively be financing your phone through Verizon, sans-interest, of course.

Humble Bundle 3 For Android Adds Four More Games For Above Average Donations

Today, the folks behind the immensely popular Humble Bundle announced a few new games for the third edition of its Android package deal. Four new titles have been added for previous or future customers who pay more than the average (which, as of this writing, is sitting at $6.14). The new entries are Anomaly: Warzone Earth, EDGE, Osmos, and the crowd-favorite World of Goo, which, together, cost about $15 on the Play Store.

These four new arrivals come in addition to the previous set of games—including Spirits, which we reviewed earlier—bringing the total number of indie titles you can get to nine, for a mere six bucks and some change.

HTC Continues The Countdown, Teases "Something Authentic" And The Number 4 (With 4 Days To Go Until MWC)

Yesterday, HTC dropped a teaser on their Facebook page: a vector outline of a phone with an HTC logo and a big "5" in the center and a caption of "This Sunday you'll discover something fast." With 5 days to go until MWC began, we took a few stabs at what it could mean. Today, the company has followed up with a "4" teaser image on their Facebook, with the caption of "This Sunday, you'll hear something authentic."

I'm going to go out on a limb here and do some speculation, so take everything with a major grain of salt.

[Brilliant] The Humble Bundle Lets You Pay What You Want For 4 Hot Indie Android Games, All While Supporting Charities And Developers

The Humble Bundle has been around for a couple of years now, but I have never heard of it. They're known for bundling up indie games, letting purchasers set their own price, and dividing up the profits among developers and charities. This is just an absolutely fascinating concept, and the first ever Android bundle has arrived!

The games in this Android bundle include Anomaly Warzone Earth HD (our review), Osmos HD (our review), Edge, and World of Goo. What's even more awesome is the fact that these games are not only DRM free (so you can download them as many times as you want), but they are also cross-platform.

New Details About The HTC Edge Surface, This Is What Dreams Are Made Of

Yesterday we saw the first render of the HTC Edge, which is rumored to be the first smartphone to pack the ultra-sick quad-core Tegra 3 processor. New info has now emerged that suggests this superphone could be packed with even more monstrous specs that we originally imagined.

According to BGR, the fun is just getting started with the Tegra 3, as this super-slim device could feature a 4.7-inch 720p SuperLCD 2 with optical lamination, which would make this the best display we've ever seen on a smartphone.

The Edge will also feature a sleek unibody design with 32GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, a microSIM slot, and an 8MP rear shooter with 1080p video capture, as well as a 720p front camera, Beats Audio, Bluetooth 4.0, an 1800mAh battery, and...

Leaked Press Shot Of The HTC Edge Shows Up, Rumored To Be The First Quad-Core Phone

While we already know the world's first quad-core tablet will be the ASUS Transformer Prime, we just got a glimpse of the first quad-core phone. It's rumored to be called the HTC Edge, and the hardware sounds completely beast.

HTCEdge_leakedpics

  • 4.7-inch 720p display
  • 1.5GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP f/2.2 lens
  • 10mm thick

There is one small detail that you may have already noticed: capacitive buttons. Of course, that doesn't mean this phone won't come with ICS right out of the gate, it just means that it won't take advantage of on-screen buttons.

According to PocketNow, we could see this device hit stores in late Q1 or early Q2 of next year, though carrier info is nowhere to be found.

[Deal Alert] enTourage Pocket eDGe Dualbook Android Tablet/e-Ink Reader $150 At Woot.com Today (May 4th, 2011)

The enTourage eDGe Dualbook is one of the more interesting devices released last year due to its 2 screens - a 7" touchscreen LCD and a 6" e-Ink. Similar to the Spring Design Alex eReader, the Dualbook lets you read ebooks on one screen while simultaneously Googling, browsing Wikipedia, checking email, and doing anything Android lets you do on the other screen. However, if you find yourself reading late at night, just throw the book over to the LCD screen, and suddenly you can read in the dark. Pretty cool, eh?

The tablet/eReader features a 1.2GHz Marvell ARMADA PXA168 CPU, 3GB internal memory, a microSD slot, Android 1.6 (although a 2.2 ROM is supposedly floating around), a 2MP front-facing camera, a speaker, a microphone, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
