[Deal Alert] $120-130 Off Samsung Galaxy S III Developer Edition For Verizon

You may recall the collective scream of horror emitted by the Android community when it was confirmed over the summer that the Verizon model of the Galaxy S III would ship with a locked bootloader. As a consolation, Samsung decided to sell an unlocked "Developer Edition" for full price online. While the regular device has since been cracked, it's a lot cleaner to buy the dev version and now it's on sale.

C Spire Wireless Gets The Galaxy S III, Available Right Now For $200 With 2-Year Contract

It seems like everyone's getting a Galaxy S III lately, and C Spire Wireless (formerly Cellular South) didn't want to be left out. If you're unfamiliar with the company, they're a regional provider in the Southeastern US, with a Verizon-sourced regional MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) national network. C Spire operates its own network on its home turf, and that includes a growing LTE footprint. That LTE, for now, is quite limited, basically to a few parts of the Southeast US.

AT&T Announces A Handful Of New Galaxy Devices: Express, Rugby Pro, And Tab 2 10.1

Wow, AT&T. Instead of sending multiple device announcements on different days, the company just announced a few new smartphones and a tablet for its 4G LTE network, all of which are made by Samsung. Let's take a look, shall we?

Samsung Galaxy Express

The Galaxy Express seems to be sort of a tweener device. Not in terms of "your child between the ages of 10 and 12 will love it!" but in that it appears to be right in the middle of the Galaxy S III and some mid-range devices.

Sony's Ice Cream Sandwich Update For The Xperia Sola Introduces "Glove Mode", Allows You To Control Your Phone Whilst Wearing Gloves

Smartphones are great; they organize our lives, provide us with news and information, and keep us in touch with friends no matter how far away they may be. Smartphone gloves on the other hand? Not so much. They don't do a great job of keeping your hands warm in the cold weather, and they aren't exactly renowned for their comfort.

Fortunately for Xperia sola users, Sony has you covered. The Ice Cream Sandwich update for the sola, which began today, includes a new feature called "glove mode" which, you guessed it, allows you to wear any pair of gloves and still use your smartphone.

Sony Tablet S Software Update Rolling Out In The US With Goodies From Xperia Tablet S

Sony's Tablet S (or "S1") was released over a year ago to little hubbub. Still, that's not keeping the increasingly-awesome Sony from shooting a new update out for it with many of the software features of its successor, the Xperia Tablet S. None of them are especially mind-blowing, but they certainly add functionality:

  • Guest Mode
  • Redesigned media players
  • More "Small" (floating) apps
  • Expanded functionality for the remote control app
  • New widgets
  • Social Feed Reader Cloud has been updated to Socialife
  • Oddly, they suggest people also download Watch Now from the Play store

Otherwise, things stay basically the same.

Google Play Movies Come To Korea – Enjoy Hundreds Of Titles From Korea And Hollywood

Google has been working to change that, offering more and more of the Play Store's non-app content abroad. In that spirit, today it announced that Google Play Movies is now available in Korea (where we saw Eric Schmidt having some Gangnam style fun earlier this week).

Considering there are zero details at this time, we have no idea what changes have been made, but hopefully Acer found a way to make this HD tablet run a little smoother this go around.
