Samsung To Extend Galaxy Gear Support To The S4, S III, Note II, And Other Devices Starting At The End Of October

Out of the gate, the Samsung Galaxy Gear has made for the tough sell. It's hard enough to justify dropping $299 on a watch, but it's even more difficult to shell out that much on one that only pairs with a single device. Customers who don't want the Galaxy Note 3 or aren't ready to cut the cord on their current handsets have thus far been out of luck. Of course, Samsung has been upfront from the beginning that it planned to release support for slightly older Galaxy devices down the road.

Just over a month since T-Mobile began selling the Galaxy S4, the company is knocking $50 off the price of Samsung's latest flagship handset. Customers can now pick up the phone for $99.99 down along with 24 months of $20 payments. To save you the math, that's an additional $480 over the course of two years. T-Mobile is also selling the phone for the complete upfront price of $579.99, a tad cheaper than buying an unlocked version off Amazon (and with the bonus of LTE).

Samsung Revisits The Pebble Blue Galaxy SIII's 'Shortage', Stresses The Importance Of Keeping Promises

In a lengthy, somewhat intimate retrospective piece posted today to Samsung Tomorrow, the electronics giant revisits the launch of the Galaxy SIII. Readers likely remember a launch that almost came off without a hitch, but which was tarnished by a "shortage" of Pebble Blue colored units.

Verizon Galaxy SIII Unlocked Thanks To Leaked Unsecure Bootloader

Despite Verizon's best efforts to keep their own variant of the Galaxy SIII locked down, ingenious users haven't been deterred in rooting, flashing custom ROMs, and even bypassing the device's locked bootloader to use custom kernels. The fact remained, however, that VZW's SIII had a locked bootloader which, in general, is a hassle for developers and tweakers hoping to customize the SIII to its fullest potential. It was this fact that made Samsung's promised Developer Edition SIII appealing to many.

Samsung: Investigation Proves Alleged Galaxy SIII Explosion Actually Caused By "A Domestic Microwave"

Remember last month when an innocent user's Galaxy SIII was said to have spontaneously combusted? In the original post, user dillo2k10 told a harrowing tale, explaining that during a seemingly average drive, his S3 got a little too hot:
