PC Mag: The Sony Xperia Z3 Will Come To Verizon As The Xperia Z3v

For years now, we've been drooling over Sony's high-end hardware and gorgeous industrial design, only to be bummed since the phones rarely come to the United States. Sony and T-Mobile have a pretty good relationship, as evidenced by yesterday's announcement that the new Xperia Z3 would launch on the carrier in the US.

Isis Mobile Wallet Is Now Softcard, After Changing Its Name To Avoid Association With The Other ISIS

I've only spent a small amount of time taking business classes, and none of them were for marketing. But I have to imagine that somewhere in those big, expensive textbooks, when instruction young minds how to promote a product, is the lesson "don't associate with bloodthirsty terrorists."

I used the Motorola DROID RAZR M as my primary phone for over six months. I was in between jobs, my not-so-trusty Galaxy Nexus had been smashed, and I knew from previous experience that Motorola's resurrected RAZR line had tough builds and good radios. While it was ostensibly a "budget phone," that ugly little DROID RAZR M was the most reliable Android device I had ever owned.

Verizon Teases Upcoming VoLTE Service With Video Calling

Even if you don't talk on the phone a lot, VoLTE is going to be a thing that you want. Replacing the old 3G standards for voice will mean one less radio always sucking down power in your device when you're in an LTE area.

This update doesn't appear to have much else going for it, as the device is already running Android 4.4.2, but I guess a major revision to the custom skin is nothing to scoff at.
