    Last month we saw Samsung get the ball rolling on sales for its eye-catching Galaxy Note Edge with that wrap-around display. Carriers in Japan started making the phablet available to their customers, and as those lucky shoppers managed to get their hands on the Edge for the first time, we found ourselves wondering when the heck we'd finally get the scoop on the phone's release in the US. After all, while all the big carriers in the States were quick to proclaim their plans to sell the Note Edge nearly as soon as it launched, they've been largely quite about specifics... until now. We ...

    Samsung's new Gear S smartwatch bucks trends in more ways than one, giving users not just a curved wrist-hugging display, but also a wearable with integrated cellular connectivity. We saw the smartwatch launch back around IFA-time, and a few weeks later we started picking up on news about the model's path towards a US release. What we didn't have, though, were a lot of details, including pricing and specific timing. Today our answers begin to pour in, and both AT&T and T-Mobile are talking about getting Gear S sales started early next month. AT&T will be first out of the gate, ...

    The smartphone industry is full of plenty of gigantic companies, with influence and buckets of money at their disposal. As such, it's easy to feel a bit like David in the face of Goliath, and even if you have a valid complaint against one of these juggernauts, getting your way can feel like squeezing blood from a stone. Luckily for smartphone users in the US, the Federal Trade Commission has got their back, and we've seen recent efforts from it trying to stem unauthorized purchases from the various app stores out there. The latest target to wander into its crosshairs is AT&T, as the ...

    AT&T is set to start carrying the Lumia 830. The carrier confirmed as much back in early September, just days after the handset launched at IFA 2014. There's still no official date for exactly when the 830 will go up for sale, but the latest rumors have attempted to nail-down November 7 as the most likely possibility. As we wait to see if that date proves to be correct, some additional technical information on the handset is coming to light, and it's good news for anyone who likes wireless charging and broad accessory compatibility. We already knew the Lumia 830 would support wireless ...

    One of the many cool things about the iPad Air 2 (as well as the iPad mini 3) is the inclusion of an Apple-branded SIM card. Rather than having to choose a carrier first, then go and seek out a matching SIM, the Apple SIM gives users the ability to decide on a network and plan at their leisure, with the hardware ready to support T-Mobile, AT&T, or Sprint. And if you're not willing to commit to a long-term agreement, you could always switch things up and try shorter-term plans from various carriers as the mood struck you. At least, that's how it was supposed to work, but as users are ...

    It's been a couple months since we had cause to talk about Samsung's Galaxy Mega 2. A number of leaks helped reveal the phone to us over the summer, but the buzz around the phablet was quickly drowned out by Samsung's launch of the Galaxy Note 4. Nevertheless, the Galaxy Mega 2 has since gone official, and now it's nearly time for the Android to make its presence felt in the States, as AT&T shares plans for the start of Mega 2 sales later this week. This Friday, October 24, AT&T will have the Galaxy Mega 2 available for purchase both in stores and online. The phone will run ...

    Yesterday was a big day for Android, with the launch of Google's latest Nexus hardware alongside Android 5.0 Lollipop. And in just a couple hours, we're going to be neck-deep in iOS territory thanks to Apple's iPad event. But before we get there we wanted to take a moment to check out some other Android news from yesterday that got a bit lost in the shuffle, as AT&T, ASUS, and Intel announced the PadFone X mini. Just about one month ago we heard from one of our sources that AT&T was getting ready to welcome a new PadFone mini model, and this PadFone X mini appears to be that very ...

    The onslaught of Nexus rumors today means only one thing to us, and that is the fact that a launch is looking pretty imminent. To further add to that, we now have a product listing on AT&T's website for a Motorola Nexus 6 – is there really any doubt now? The listing itself isn't quite live, but curiously enough, if you visit AT&T's LG G3 Vigor listing (the first source link below), it shows on the right-hand column a link to the "Motorola Nexus 6," revealing a link to the product and also an on-contract price. While this could just be a placeholder, the $49.99 price isn't far ...

    We're coming up on two months now from the launch of the HTC One M8 for Windows, an overdue flagship-level WP handset from someone other than the Nokia/Microsoft juggernaut. And while we were very excited to see an Android phone we loved get the Windows Phone treatment, the release of the device left a bit to be desired, hitting the US as a carrier exclusive, bound to Verizon. But even with that restriction we had cause to be optimistic, as it became clear that Verizon's exclusivity was a temporary launch thing, and that other carriers would pick up the phone for themselves in time: ...

    The “double” in today's HTC “double exposure” event means that the new RE camera isn't arriving alone, and alongside that new cross-platform camera accessory, the manufacturer brought a new smartphone to share with the world, confirming weeks of rumors about a handset with unparalleled front-facing camera performance: the HTC Desire EYE. The leaked renders we've seen were right on the money, and sure enough, the EYE has one of the biggest front-facers we've ever observed on a smartphone, including not just a 13MP auto-focus camera, but also a dual-LED flash. You'll find a similar ...

    Regular users of Google Voice won't hesitate to tell you that the service is ten kinds of awesome, letting them juggle multiple devices while only distributing a single phone number to friends, family, and business contacts. If you're using it for calls or text messages, everything tends to work just fine, but when we start bringing pictures into the mix, a lot of users hit a brick wall. Problem is, Voice support for MMS has been extremely limited, and while we saw Sprint pick it up three years ago, other carriers haven't followed in its tracks... until now, that is. This week, Google has ...

    Google's next Nexus phone feels like it's so close we can almost touch it. Leaks of the Nexus 6 have been getting bigger and better in recent weeks, and as we approach the Nexus 5's first birthday, all eyes are on Google to see when it plans to go public with what's looking like it will be the first Nexus phablet. As smartphone fans know, one key step on the road to a handset's release is it getting its FCC certification – that's why so many eyes today are turning to a new set of FCC docs from Motorola. Are they really for the Nexus 6, though, or could there be another explanation. The ...

    Samsung's newest smartwatch is a bit different than the previous Gear models, in that it can function as a standalone device rather than just a smartphone companion. That's why it's important that mobile network operators decide to carry the watch, and Samsung has definitely made availability a priority with this Samsung Gear S US release. The wearable is headed to the US this fall for AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile. First of all, we went hands-on with the device when we were in Berlin for IFA 2014, so be sure to check out our video of the Gear S if you're considering making a ...

    It feels like lately, when we're talking about Samsung's new metal-rimmed Galaxy Alpha, that our attention is focused on all these other A-series phones Samsung appears to be preparing in the Galaxy Alpha's image, phones like the Galaxy A5 we saw in pictures last week. And while phones like that may be the future of the Alpha's lineage, we'd be remiss to let our excitement over them make us forget about their progenitor. The original Galaxy Alpha is back on our mind today as AT&T shares news of its plans to bring the smartphone to the States later this week. Starting this Friday, ...

    ASUS introduced its PadFone Mini nearly ten months ago, giving users who were interested in that unique PadFone trick of docking a smartphone into a larger tablet body a new, smaller option than something like the big nine-inch PadFone X: a compact seven-inch tablet paired with a four-inch phone. We saw the company bring the Mini to CES in January, and while there was talk of US pricing, no specific release plans were shared. But now we find ourselves thinking about the PadFone Mini once again, as a tipster clues us in to a possible PadFone Mini release for AT&T. At least - it's a ...
