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).

Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 Lands On MetroPCS On November 25th For $399 Outright, Shoves Smaller And Weaker Phones Aside

When Samsung introduced its gigantic yet frugal Galaxy Mega line, I had a feeling that it would be a hit with smaller and more budget-conscious carriers. Lo and behold, Metro PCS is the latest US carrier to get a branded version of the ginormous Galaxy Mega 6.3, starting on November 25th. AT&T, Sprint, and US Cellular have already released the phone. After a $100 instant rebate, the phone costs $399 on a MetroPCS contract-free plan.

Black And Grey Nexus 5 Bumper Cases Are Now In Stock In The Play Store, Shipping To The US And Canada

 Flaming red and safety vest yellow might accessorize well if you're a firefighter with an insatiable enthusiasm for Nexus hardware, but they'll stand out like a sore thumb for anyone else. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but if you prefer your Nexus 5 protective case in a more subtle hue, Google just posted both black and grey versions of the bumper case to the Play Store.

HBO GO App Update Adds Chromecast Support Just In Time For A Boardwalk Binge

You asked. You begged. You pleaded. And your requests have not fallen on deaf ears... but it did take HBO a while, didn't it? The HBO GO app got a small update this morning, adding support for Google's streaming Chromecast dongle. Nothing more, nothing less.

Google Engineer Dan Morrill Sheds Some Light On The Nexus OTA Process, Urges You To Never Clear Google Service Framework Data

The Android 4.4 update, aka KitKat, still has yet to roll out to a large number of Nexus device owners out there. And, in desperation, some users are resorting to methods they probably don't fully understand in order to get the OTA, one of which is clearing the Google Service Framework data. This method isn't new, but it's one whose side effects are not generally considered by those who use it, at least according to Google engineer Dan Morrill.

Verizon Pushing Android 4.1.2 To Both Droid Xyboards Right Now

Hey! Remember they Droid Xyboards? No? Well, surprisingly, Verizon does. In fact, both the 8.2- and 10.1-inch versions are getting an OTA update that brings Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.2) right now. Fantastic.

So what does this mean for Xyboard owners? Some new stuff, pretty much. Like Google Now! And Chrome. And Movie Studio, according to Verizon's changelog.

See? Look at all that new stuff. Really, there aren't a lot of tangible differences between 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 aside from just knowing that you're a few versions behind.
