[Deal Alert] Save a few bucks on select Google Home and Chromecast Ultra combos, I guess ($10-$30 off)

Google is offering discounts on particular combinations of its Google Home and Chromecast hardware, but the deals are just kind of okay, and frankly a bit of a letdown with all the big price slashes from the holidays still fresh in our memories.

Verizon Announces The Pantech Perception, A 4.8-Inch $150 Pile Of ICS-Powered Mediocrity, For Release On April 25th

If the phones that Pantech has released in America thus far have been your sole exposure to the South Korean manufacturer, you might be surprised to learn that the company has some legitimately awesome hardware in its home territory. The Pantech Perception... isn't. While it competes with the likes of the Galaxy S III on paper, at least in some respects, a combination of old software and expensive hardware makes this new Verizon phone a hard sell to anyone who wants a high-powered device. It launches on Thursday, April 25th for $100 on contract... after a $50 mail-in rebate. Remember those?

Verizon Approves Software Update 7.02.605.10 For The HTC Thunderbolt

The Thunderbolt has had one weird life. It was VZW's first LTE phone. But it was less than stellar, and had lots of problems. Then HTC promised that it would get ICS, which got delayed again and again. And again. But it finally came out, and Tbolt owners were kinda happy about it for five minutes.

Now the brick-of-a-device is in line to get another small OTA, which fixes some stuff that you may or may not use:

  • Microphone now works with HAC enabled
  • HTC Watch now shows titles available for viewing or purchase
  • Amber alerts are now visible
  • Text messaging app has been improved
  • Improvements to Yahoo and Microsoft Exchange Email Connectivity

2013-04-01_12h43_48

The details of the update just hit VZW's site a bit ago, which generally indicates the OTA is ready to go and should start hitting devices in the coming days.

[Review] The LG Revolution: Don't Let The Name Fool You; It's Just Alright

It's been a long time since my opinions on a device have been so torn. On the one hand, the Revolution is a pretty impressive piece of hardware, but on the other, there are some seriously annoying things about it (specifically some software elements - the lock screen makes me want to assault something adorable). All the handset's different aspects ultimately lead to one conclusion: MEH.

I can honestly say that this is the closest to not having an opinion I've ever come in regards to a device. Seriously, I'm EXTREMELY neutral here. More neutral than you, that's for sure. Let's see why:

Specs and Such

  • 4G LTE
  • 1GHz Snapdragon Processor
  • Android 2.2 (Froyo)
  • 5MP Rear Camera
  • 1.3MP Front Facing Camera
  • 720p HD Video Recording
  • Mobile Hotspot Capability
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • 16GB SD card pre-installed and 16GB of internal memory

Doesn't sound too bad, does it?
