Amazon Underground Expands To Sixteen European Countries And Territories, Including Italy And Spain

This may come as a surprise, but some people really hate spending money on apps. They're willing to deal with banner ads, pop-ups, videos, and any number of intrusions before approaching a button in the Play Store with the letters b, u, or y. Amazon figures there's money to be made off these folks, and Amazon Underground is its effort to do so. Now the retailer is expanding the service to Italy, Spain, and fourteen other parts of Europe.

The Moto 360 Sport Will Launch In The UK And France December 18th, US On January 7th

The Moto 360, old or new, is a nice watch for people who like nice watches. But Motorola's little Android Wear device isn't made for the more active or outdoorsy among us. It's large, and rubbing one against a rock while climbing might just ruin your day. Don't trip while running, because those tears won't be over your scraped knee.

Knowing this, Motorola has developed the Moto Sport. It's a follow-up model that's surrounded by a layer of silicone that stands up to sweat and other moisture. This is also the company's only model that comes with built-in GPS.

AT&T Announces It Will Carry Samsung's Jumbo Galaxy View Tablet Starting On Friday, With Some Big Discounts For DirecTV Customers

Samsung tablets usually get picked up by at least one or two of the big American carriers, and so it goes with the enormous 18.4-inch Galaxy View. Today AT&T announced that it will begin selling an LTE-equipped version of the tablet starting on Friday, November 20th. It will cost you $600 outright, or $30 a month for 20 months on AT&T's installment plan, or $500 if you agree to a two year service contract. (Don't do that.) But wait, there's more: that AT&T-DirecTV acquisition is about to pay some serious dividends for customers of both companies.

If you're an existing AT&T customer but you don't have DirecTV, you can sign up for a new two-year TV service agreement and buy a Galaxy View for just $100.

You Can Now Buy The $600 Galaxy View In The US From Samsung And Other Online Retailers

The Samsung Galaxy View is without a doubt a niche product, but for the right person, this giant 18.4" tablet could be a tempting buy. Granted, $600 is a lot of money, especially when it only manages to have a 1080p screen (and a rather meager 8 hours of battery life). Regardless, the Galaxy View is now available in the US direct from Samsung or via Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H.

Ordering from Samsung does allow you to also buy an extended warranty plan with accidental damage protection at the time of purchase, at $89.99 for two years or $159.99 for three.

HTC One A9 Officially Available At Sprint And AT&T Stores Today, But Sprint Wants $700 For It Because They're Idiots

While online sales of the HTC One A9, including carrier pre-orders, have been going on some time now, today it is now in actual, physical stores. AT&T and Sprint ones.

Pre-orders should begin shipping today for carrier variants and unlocked devices alike, too. But if you want to see a One A9 in person - and it's a pretty good phone - you can now do that, at least in America. There's no word on when T-Mobile's version is coming, exactly. The unlocked edition of the phone will get Verizon compatibility at a later date.

Edit: This article previously stated that there would be a T-Mobile A9.

HTC One A9 Now Available From AT&T Online For $520, In Stores November 6th

The HTC One A9 is a fun phone to mock, but as it turns out, it's also a fun phone to use. And if you're an AT&T customer, your chance to do so has arrived.

The carrier offers HTC's first Marshmallow-running device in Carbon Gray and Opal Silver. Either way, you're paying $520. Yes, that's a big leap up from the $400 introductory price, but that's why we call them deals (edit: so you might want to jump on that while you still can).

Since this is AT&T we're talking about, you have no shortage of ways to part with your money.
