Verizon aims to circumvent FCC SIM-locking restrictions by playing to phone-fraud fears

Yesterday Verizon announced its intention to modify FCC restrictions placed on it a decade ago, requiring that the company explicitly not lock its phones. If its request is granted, Verizon plans on selling all phones as locked for a 60-day period.

Pixel Slate pops up at the FCC as we (maybe not so) patiently wait for sales to open

For as exciting as product announcements can be, especially when we're getting hands-on time with some brand-new gear, they also have the potential to be incredibly frustrating. At Google's October event, we got to meet devices like the new Pixel 3 and 3XL, as well as the Home Hub smart display — and it wasn't too long after their introduction that shoppers could take that hardware home. Sadly, the situation's a bit different for the Pixel Slate, and while Google went official with its Chrome OS tablet last month, it held back on talking about sales in terms any more temporally precise than "later this year."
