The Samsung Galaxy Tab E Is Now Available On Verizon's LTE Network For $330

If you're looking for a relatively cheap tablet with access to the Verizon network... well, then you probably already own one of those Ellipsis things. But if you want one with an actual name brand behind it, Samsung would like a word. The company just released the Galaxy Tab E, a tablet that hasn't been seen in the US before today, on Verizon. You can get one for $329.99 outright, not bad for an LTE tablet, or just under $14 a month for two years on the installment plan.

In terms of hardware, the Galaxy Tab E sits somewhere between the low-end Tab A series and the top-of-the-line Tab S2.

Verizon's Now-Pointless Z4v Still Hasn't Been Released, But Here's Some Guy Reviewing It On YouTube

Remember that time Verizon announced it will carry a version of the Xperia Z4 called the Xperia Z4v three months ago? And said it would be out "this summer?" Well, summer ends in exactly... tomorrow, and the phone still isn't out. It was actually allegedly supposed to be released over a month ago, but now any kind of launch before October seems highly unlikely. Some guy got one anyway (somehow) and reviewed it in this video on YouTube. Verizon's site, by the way, says the phone is still "coming soon."

As I hope we can all agree, this is tremendously, mind-bendingly dumb for several reasons.

Deal Alert: The Original Galaxy Tab S 10.5 (Verizon LTE Version) Is On eBay For $360, Ships Internationally

Samsung's top-end tablets tend to be much more expensive than their contemporaries, and even more so if you spring for a mobile radio.

[Update: It's Official] The Original Moto X On Verizon Is Finally Getting Android 5.1 Via A Soak Test

While many of us have been living the Lollipop life and looking forward to Marshmallow, life hasn't been so grand for owners of the first generation Moto X on Verizon.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Is Now Available For Purchase From Retailers And Carriers

It's been a while since we've seen Samsung do anything in the high-end tablet market; in fact, the original Tab S was probably the last flagship tablet the manufacturer released. But today marks the nationwide availability of that tablet's successor(s), the Tab S2 9.7 and S2 8.0.

As the names suggest, this pair packs 9.7-inch and 8.0-inch displays, respectively, both using the 4:3 aspect ratio that many users crave (and equally as many users hate). Otherwise, these are both packing some pretty intense hardware under the hood:

Verizon Updates Its Corporate Logo, And It's Fine

Google isn't the only massive tech company eager to overhaul its corporate image. Today Verizon Communications (not to be confused with Verizon Wireless, which is technically a subsidiary and a separate company) announced a new logo. That's it, above this text you're reading. You can look at it right now. Below is the former logo, which is still emblazoned on basically everything Verizon owns at this point.
