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. Read More
Another day, another Jelly Bean update to a Samsung Galaxy device. Today's target: T-Mobile's Galaxy S Relay 4G (I still hate that name). Unlike many of the other Jelly Bean updates rolling out to Galaxy phones, this one's only available through Kies and OTA. Read More
Update: Well, that was fast – looks like they only had 200 to sell, and they're already gone. Stick a fork in this one – it's done!
If you've been waiting for the day when you can grab the Exynos Octa-powered version of the Galaxy S4, today's it. The Galaxy S4 I9500 just showed up on eBay's Daily Deals site for the smoking hot price of $700 – that's $100 less than any other retailer is letting this monster go for. Read More
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. Read More
A lot of people are excited for Google Glass right now. The first Explorer units began rolling into the happy embrace of those selected for the exclusive pilot program just last week, and we've already seen a ton of feedback. Combined with decent pre-release coverage, it's clear that Glass has the potential to shake things up once more people have it in their hands. Of course press coverage and user excitement only form part of the story. Read More
With the Note III nowhere on the horizon (yet), there are undoubtedly those who are still tempted to give Samsung's second phablet marvel a try.

Over the past few days, ASUS has begun rolling out a treat to MeMO Pad Smart 10 owners, distributing Android 4.2.1 in an update to build number V10.6.1.15. The update, which rings in at about 500MB, brings the MeMO to 4.2.1 from 4.1, delivering on ASUS' "Q2 2013" promises noted in our review.
Of course, the headlining feature with this update is 4.2's multi-user support, which we already saw on an ASUS slate back when the manufacturer brought 4.2 to the TF300T in the US, beating other OEMs to the update punch. Read More
If you happened to miss out on the chance to get last year's flagship for $380 when it hit eBay's Daily Deals site earlier this month, it's back again. While the GSIII may not be the hottest phone money can buy any more, it's still a very capable handset that will likely continue to be well supported by Samsung over the coming months (and then some).
The only "downside" of today's deal is that it's for the blue and black variants only – white and red are already sold out. Read More
If you've been feeling sad because of the lack of posts about source code lately, today should be making up for it. This morning, Samsung released the first bath of kernel source for the Galaxy S4, and just a bit ago HTC offered up the code for five different variants of the One.
Looks like Samsung wasn't quite finished after the S4 code this morning, however, as the company just pushed the T-Mobile Galaxy S III LTE's code to its download server. Read More
