Verizon Launches The Samsung Galaxy S III Mini ($50) And Galaxy S4 Mini ($100) At The Same Time, For Some Reason

The "Mini" portion of Samsung's lineup is squarely aimed at the budget market. It's strange, then, to see two new phones that are (at least in some respects) a generation apart launch on the same carrier on the same day. Verizon has done just that: the Galaxy S III Mini is now available starting at $49.99 ($249.99 without a contract) and the Galaxy S4 Mini is $99.99 (a full $399.99 contract-free).

The day you've been waiting for is here, "phablet" fans... assuming you're a prospective or current Sprint customer and you haven't already bought a Galaxy Note 3. The Now Network has launched its carrier-branded version of the HTC One Max (or "One max" if you're a brand manager) and it's currently available on the official online store for $149.99.

That's $149.99, if and only if you meet a few qualifications.

Motorola Announces The Moto G: A Competitive Mid-Range Phone For $179 Off-Contract, Coming To The US In January

The words "no compromise" and "mid-range" would seem to be mutually exclusive, but Motorola would like you to think otherwise. The company announced the Moto G in a live event, promoting a cheaper and slightly lower-spec version of the flagship Moto X. This phone is Motorola's wide-ranging model, the first that's been introduced since the X, and it's intended to be cheap enough to be purchased without a contract.

We could tell you all the specs and technical details, but the most important factor in the Moto G is the price.

Sprint Launches The Nexus 5, LG G2, Galaxy S4 Mini, And Galaxy Mega 6.3 Today, With Mail-In Rebates Aplenty

Sprint is getting some significant updates to its smartphone lineup today: two high-end phones from LG and two mid-range phones from Samsung, in a variety of sizes from petite to freakin' huge, man. The Nexus 5 and G2 from LG, as well as the Galaxy S4 Mini and Galaxy Mega (6.3) from Samsung, are all available on the online store now. They should be in most retail stores soon (with a possible exception in the midwest and southeast), though the Nexus 5 will probably be scarce as usual.

AT&T Will Be The First US Carrier To Offer The Galaxy S4 Zoom, Available November 8th For $199 With Two-Year Contract

The Galaxy S4 Zoom is what you get if you hold a Galaxy S4 in one hand, a digital camera in the other, and slam them together. Samsung unveiled the device early in the summer, and while it didn't take long to arrive in other areas of the world, it's only just now coming to the US. Come November 8th, AT&T will become the first camera to offer the Galaxy S4 Zoom on this side of the pond.

The Nexus 5 And KitKat Launch Today, October 31st

Ladies and gentlemen, today is the day you've all been patiently (I kid, I kid - I mean, have you seen /r/Android lately?) waiting for.

Update 11am PT: Like clockwork, the Nexus 5 and KitKat are live!

After speaking with no less than five different sources with knowledge of the matter, I am ready to confirm that the LG-made Nexus 5 should be unveiled later on today, along with Android 4.4 KitKat, additional details of which were leaked last night by former WSJ reporter Amir Efrati.

Kindle MatchBook Launches With 7x The Titles Amazon Promised In Last Month's Announcement

Last month Amazon announced MatchBook, a new service that gives customers the option to get discounted Kindle versions of physical books they've already bought. It launched today with support for over 70,000 titles, seven times what the company promised would be available from the get go. Discounted books range from free to $2.99.

MatchBook

Eligible books date back to 1995, the year when Amazon first launched its online bookstore. Just remember that only purchases tied to your current account will apply, so while many of us didn't have email address way back when, those that did probably haven't held on to them.

[New Game] Star Command Spaceship Adventure Sim Enters The Play Store Following Humble Mobile Bundle Debut

One of the perks of the many Humble Bundles is that they bring games to platforms they didn't exist for previously. Linux gamers know what I'm talking about, as their operating system of choice has been relatively flooded with games since the original Humble Indie Bundle first brought Aquaria, Gish, Penumbra, and other titles to the platform. Android isn't nearly as desperate for quality games, but Time Surfer entered the Play Store a few weeks ago following its Humble Mobile Bundle debut, and now Star Command has done the same.

LG's latest flagship device is now available on Verizon Wireless, the first carrier to offer the 5.2-inch handset in-stores. Verizon customers can pick up one by handing over $199.99 with a two-year contract or paying $599 to get the phone contract-free.

Make Room: Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 Drops Into AT&T's Lineup For $149.99

AT&T just launched a large amount of phones all at once, but none are so large as Samsung's Galaxy Mega 6.3. This relatively low-priced alternative to the Galaxy Note and Optimus G Pro is the largest phone in AT&T's lineup, and at the moment, also the largest carrier phone anywhere in America. The device is available now at $149.99 on-contract or $479.99 unsubsidized.

The Mega 6.3 naturally has a 6.3-inch display, but it's an LCD panel instead of Samsung's usual AMOLED, and the resolution is a mere 1280x720.
