Sprint's Galaxy S4 Pre-Orders Already Sold Out, But Amazon Wireless Comes To The Rescue

If you've finally decided that pre-ordering Sprint's variant of the Galaxy S4 is the right move for your mobile life, you're in for a less-than-ideal surprise: it's already sold out directly from The Now Network. Sadface.

But before you get too sad, we've some good news: it's now available for pre-order from Amazon Wireless! Happyface. You'll find that AW has the same pricing structure as Sprint, so it'll set you back $150 if you're switching networks, and $250 if you're simply upgrading. Alternatively, you can grab it contract-free for $700, which really isn't a bad price in itself.

The device is expected to hit Sprint's shelves on April 27th, which is the same day Amazon should begin shipping pre-order units.

LG Spills The Beans - May 1st Event In NYC Will Debut The Optimus G Pro For The US

My Optimus G Pro review (of the Korean version) will be on the way later today, but it sounds like LG has finalized plans to bring its Note II competitor to the US, a la a follow-up to event it announced last week, scheduled for May 1st.

LG sent out official invitations to said event today, and they're not even trying to hide the star of the show: the Optimus G Pro is on its way to America. While the invitation does not announce any specific carrier partnerships, Sprint and AT&T both carried the Optimus G, so they're probably the best starting points.

Minuum Keyboard Finishes Its Indiegogo Campaign With A Staggering 873% Of Its Initial Goal, Android Beta Coming In June

When we first laid eyes on Minuum back in mid-March, it was love at first sight (for me, anyway). A touchscreen keyboard that only takes up one row sounds like an absolute godsend. Personally, I instantly threw money at the screen so I could get early access to this little gem – that was the first day of the company's Indiegogo campaign. During that day, it blasted past its original $10,000 goal, proving that my desire for this fantastic-looking piece of software to come to fruition was shared by many.

Here we are some 30(ish) days later, and the campaign has come to an end, raising an amazing 873 percent of its goal.

Verizon's New Device Payment Plan: Buy Your Phone Over 12 Months Without Extending Your Contract, Strings Attached

Verizon officially launched its new Device Payment Plan today, an option more and more of its customers seem to be clamoring for, especially now that T-Mobile has allegedly "killed" its own smartphone contracts. In an ideal world, Verizon would respond in kind with interest-free, 2-year financing of any smartphone you want, contract-free on your existing plan, subject to credit approval. The reality is a little more complex, something I think most people kind of expected.

Here are the key takeaways for Verizon's new plan:

  • You can finance any smartphone or tablet over $349.99 MSRP, up to $1000 total credit available for each customer (meaning account, not line), subject to credit approval.

Tip: Facebook Messenger For Android Has Hidden Sticker Support, Here's How To Enable It

Facebook has been making numerous changes to its Android apps as of late, thanks to the arrival of Facebook Home. Sometimes, new features also bring "hidden" options – things that may not be quite ready for prime time but can be accessed within the app. Facebook Messenger has one such "feature" tucked away in its emoticon menu: stickers. Big ol' images with goofy faces and cats and other stuff. I'm not entirely sure why this is a thing that anyone wants, but it's there, and you can use these oversized emoticons now. Fun.

[Deal Alert] Square Enix's $20 Demons' Score On Sale For 50% Off In The Play Store

Square Enix is kind of known for having some pretty hefty prices on its games, even those outside of the Final Fantasy franchise. For that reason, we always like to see a sale that might make the purchase a little more palatable. If you've been eyeing Demons' Score since it launched in December, now is the time to jump on it. Until April 25th, the rhythm-action game will only cost $9.99.

123

A $10 price tag is still a little steep compared to a typical Android game, but it is pretty reasonable for the graphic quality and level of polish Square Enix is known for.
