The LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE Is Up For Pre-Order On AT&T And Verizon, Available On November 13 And 19 Respectively

Google "surprised" us all yesterday by announcing that cellular support was coming to Android WearCue in Oooohs and Aaaaahs and gasps of jubilant shock. Having already heard about the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE through its teaser video back in September, it was pretty much a given that Wear watches were about to learn a new trick and cut their umbilical cord tether to their phones. But understandably, Google had to make things official just in time for the release of the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE. (I'll call it WU2LTE from now on, ain't nobody got time for that shit!)

The WU2LTE is coming to the US in the next few days, and it's already available for pre-order on both AT&T and Verizon's sites. AT&T will be selling it starting $199.99 with a two-year contract.

Google Announces Official Cellular Support For Android Wear, Doesn't Mention Any Speaker Functionality For Existing Devices Like The Huawei Watch

Raise your hand if this comes as unexpected news to you. Crickets. Alright, we know Google isn't really revealing the most secret of secrets with its newest "Cellular support comes to Android Wear" announcement, but it is clarifying a few things we didn't know about how LTE would work on our smartwatches.

In his post, Peter Ludwig, Product Manager for Android Wear, explains that cellular connectivity on Wear will allow you to leave your phone behind and use your smartwatch on the go. However, it doesn't seem like you'll be able to completely forego the phone, à la Samsung Gear S2, because both phone and watch will need to be turned on and connected to a network for Wear to do its thing.

Acer's Weird Looking Gaming Tablet Predator 8 Is Up For Pre-Order For $300

We usually equate the words "gaming tablet" with NVIDIA's SHIELD Tablet, but Acer wants to change the rules of that game a little. It previewed its new Predator 8 tablet in April, then announced it back at IFA, and now it's ready to start taking pre-orders in the US. The price is acceptable, if not a steal, for the specs. $300 should net you one and you can already reserve yours online with Acer, Newegg, and TigerDirect among other retailers.

The Predator 8 packs an Intel Atom X7-Z8700 Cherry Trail processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage with a MicroSD slot that can take up to 128GB cards.

Razer's Forge TV Set-Top Box Makes An Ignominious Exit From The Google Store

Razer never seemed to really get behind its Android TV device. As far as we can tell, review units for the Forge TV were never sent to any of the tech media (not that we're bitter or anything. Razer. Not at all), and after brutal user reviews were splattered all over the Internet, the device still doesn't support the Android TV version of Netflix. Razer never released the neat-o mouse-and-keyboard combo designed specifically for couch gaming, the company's alternative to NVIDIA's PC game streaming software still hasn't materialized, and there have been no mentions of software updates or even notable game releases since the Forge TV launched in April.
