AT&T Announces It Will Carry Samsung's Jumbo Galaxy View Tablet Starting On Friday, With Some Big Discounts For DirecTV Customers

Samsung tablets usually get picked up by at least one or two of the big American carriers, and so it goes with the enormous 18.4-inch Galaxy View. Today AT&T announced that it will begin selling an LTE-equipped version of the tablet starting on Friday, November 20th. It will cost you $600 outright, or $30 a month for 20 months on AT&T's installment plan, or $500 if you agree to a two year service contract. (Don't do that.) But wait, there's more: that AT&T-DirecTV acquisition is about to pay some serious dividends for customers of both companies.

If you're an existing AT&T customer but you don't have DirecTV, you can sign up for a new two-year TV service agreement and buy a Galaxy View for just $100.

[Update: AT&T Too] Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, And Skype Also Offer Free Or Reduced Cost Calls To France After Paris Attacks

Shortly after ISIS-affiliated gunmen killed over a hundred people in multiple attacks in Paris on Friday evening, Google allowed users of its Hangouts chat platform to make free VOIP calls to France from anywhere. Later this weekend American telecom companies have followed suit. Carriers Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint are allowing their customers to call French telephone numbers without incurring international calling charges, and Skype is allowing free SkypeOut (VOIP-to-standard phone number) calls into France.

The Original Moto X Gets Its Android 5.1 (Yup, 5.1) Update On Sprint

Since the launch of the Moto X, Motorola has been pretty good about releasing timely Android updates... though that's been called into question recently. Apparently at least one variant of the original Moto X (the one from 2013) has been lagging a long way behind as well. The Sprint version of the phone only recently got its over-the-air update to Android 5.1 (the one from February). Before now it had been running Android 4.4.4 (the one from 2014). Ouch.

Verizon Super-Sizes Its Ellipsis Tablet To 10 Inches, Sells It For $300 Off Contract Or $200 With The Ball And Chain

Around this time last year Verizon released a self-branded tablet called the Ellipsis 8, a larger variation on the original 7-inch Ellipsis. We had some fun speculating on its corporate origins. But thanks to lots of discounts and package deals, there are actually a ton of these things in the hands of consumers, including some of my Verizon-using family members. So here we are again, with another, bigger Verizon whitebox tablet. This time it's a ten-inch slate called the (wait for it) Ellipsis 10.

The LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE Is Up For Pre-Order On AT&T And Verizon, Available On November 13 And 19 Respectively

Google "surprised" us all yesterday by announcing that cellular support was coming to Android WearCue in Oooohs and Aaaaahs and gasps of jubilant shock. Having already heard about the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE through its teaser video back in September, it was pretty much a given that Wear watches were about to learn a new trick and cut their umbilical cord tether to their phones. But understandably, Google had to make things official just in time for the release of the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE. (I'll call it WU2LTE from now on, ain't nobody got time for that shit!)

The WU2LTE is coming to the US in the next few days, and it's already available for pre-order on both AT&T and Verizon's sites. AT&T will be selling it starting $199.99 with a two-year contract.

[Update: 20GB Cap Added To Data Stash] T-Mobile Hiked The Prices Of Its Data Plans Yesterday, Didn't Really Say Anything About It During Uncarrier Event

Hey, did you notice yesterday at any point that T-Mobile said it's raising its prices? Well, that's because they never actually said it. They even got us - with all the talk of unlimited video streaming and double data, seemingly almost nobody noticed that the Uncarrier has raised prices on most of its Simple Choice data plans, and substantially if you want unlimited.

T-Mobile Uncarrier X Doubles Data, Brings Unlimited Video Streaming Of 24 Services At Lower Resolution

At T-Mobile's Uncarrier X press event in Los Angeles this morning, America's most disruptive wireless provider announced yet another set of lucrative bonuses for T-Mobile customers. First, all Simple Choice plans are having their data doubled. 1GB is now 2GB, 3GB is now 6GB, and 5GB is now 10GB. Unlimited customers will also see their 7GB hotspot data double to 14GB.

TableSimpleChoiceAmped

What took center-stage, though, was T-Mobile's "Binge On" initiative, which will allow unlimited streaming of video on 24 services to all Simple Choice customers on the uprated 6GB, 10GB, or unlimited plans. 2GB customers, as with Music Freedom, will not be getting in on this one.

HTC One A9 Officially Available At Sprint And AT&T Stores Today, But Sprint Wants $700 For It Because They're Idiots

While online sales of the HTC One A9, including carrier pre-orders, have been going on some time now, today it is now in actual, physical stores. AT&T and Sprint ones.

Pre-orders should begin shipping today for carrier variants and unlocked devices alike, too. But if you want to see a One A9 in person - and it's a pretty good phone - you can now do that, at least in America. There's no word on when T-Mobile's version is coming, exactly. The unlocked edition of the phone will get Verizon compatibility at a later date.

Edit: This article previously stated that there would be a T-Mobile A9.

Sprint Offers A Free Year Of Amazon Prime To Customers Who Activate A New Samsung Phone In November

Good news, Sprint customers: you now get a free year of Amazon Prime! Maybe. If you activate a "qualifying" Samsung phone for a new line of service or a renewed line, Sprint will foot the bill for Amazon's premium shipping option for a year. The promotion starts today, and those qualifying phones are limited to the Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, and the Galaxy Note 5. So basically it's just for Samsung's 2015 flagship quadruplets - you can't just run out and buy an ancient Galaxy S II for ten bucks and get $100 worth of freebies.

The offer runs through November 30th, and it's valid for Sprint customers who buy their phone outright, lease it, pay in installments, or use an old-fashioned two-year contract.
