GalaxyTab4Nook-Thumb

Barnes & Noble and Samsung appear to be getting along pretty well, for the two companies have now unveiled their second joint tablet: the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1. Just like the previous Nook tablet, this is a Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 with some added software tweaks that place emphasis on reading and consuming content from Barnes & Noble. The tablet is available for a launch price of $299 (following a $50 instant rebate), which puts it right in line with the price of the non-Nook version of the slate.

Android 4.4W.2 is slowly rolling out to various Wear devices this week, and my G Watch R review unit just received it earlier this afternoon. A couple of commenters have pointed out a new feature in W2 that we hadn't yet noticed - you can now hide notifications, as opposed to dismissing them, directly from the watchface.

Yesterday, I had an opportunity to meet with Oculus VR at one of the company's numerous offices in Irvine, CA to discuss the company's partnership with Samsung on a piece of hardware you're likely aware of by now: Gear VR Innovator Edition.

Gear VR is, for all intents and purposes, the first consumer product to ever bear the Oculus name. The company's various developer kits have never been marketed to consumers (even if some consumers do buy them), and even this new Samsung gizmo isn't going to be heavily distributed or broadly-targeted.

You know what the Galaxy S5 needs? More Power! Well, maybe it doesn't need more power, but it's getting more. The company has posted a product page for the Galaxy S5 Plus, a variant of the current flagship that includes a Snapdragon 805 in place of the 801 that powers most current variants.

The Galaxy S5 has been out for a few months at this point, but while everyone is fawning over the Note 4, you can snag a good deal on the GS5. An unlocked AT&T-branded Galaxy S5 is for sale on eBay Daily Deals right now for $419.99. It's an open box, but that's still a killer value.

There are big phones, and there are big phones. When the Galaxy Mega hit store shelves last year, it handedly qualified as a big phone. The handset was larger than the Note 3, and the latest iteration remains a device for folks who want something substantial without a massive price to match. AT&T has announced that the Mega 2 is coming to the carrier on October 24th for $474.99 outright, $149.99 with a two-year contract, $23.75 a month with Next 12, or $19.80 monthly with Next 18.

GalaxyNote3-Thumb

Each year, buying the current Galaxy Note device is an expensive undertaking. To own one off-contract, the damage done to your wallet is quite a lot to take in at once. AT&T, for example, wants around $800 to sell you this year's model. The most affordable way around this is to purchase last year's release. It's no less powerful than it was a couple of days ago, and aside from eventually reaching the end of its support period sooner than the newer version, it will satisfy most users just fine.

When Samsung and LG began selling their Android Wear watches, it seems they made a small oversight: the only way to get the proprietary POGO pin charging docks was to buy the watch. That left customers who had lost or damaged the chargers with no way to get their devices charged again. LG made good on the problem by adding a G Watch Charger to the Play Store back in August, and now Samsung has followed up for the Gear Live as well.

A new era is upon us. After having taken the wraps off this year's set of Nexus devices, it's time to clear out the old and make way for the new. If you head over to the Play Store now looking to buy a Nexus 7 or a Nexus 10, you will find that Google has listed them as no longer available for sale.

We have a reliable source (two, in fact) telling us that the first over-the-air updates to Android Lollipop will come not to the Nexus 4 or 5, but to the Nexus 7 (2012), Nexus 7 (2013 Wi-Fi), and Nexus 10. Why? Because they're all Wi-Fi devices - supposedly hardware with cellular data will have to wait a bit longer to get the OTA, meaning the Nexus 4, 5, and 2013 Nexus 7 with LTE will be stuck a bit longer waiting for the L update.
