    We all remember what Samsung did with the ATIV S: the South Korean phone-maker took the Galaxy S III and slapped Windows Phone on it. It later made its way, more or less, to Verizon as the ATIV Odyssey. Apparently that's a move that worked out quite well, as Samsung is preparing to repeat the stunt: we've been consistently hearing about the SM-W750V, and there was strong indication that it might soon land on Verizon with the codename Huron. Now this Huron is exactly what you see above, according to @evleaks, in this Samsung Huron press render. If it looks exactly like your Galaxy S 4, you ...

    For the past couple months, we've been talking about an unreleased Samsung Windows Phone 8 device, the company's model SM-W750V. The evidence that has shown up so far has been particularly strong; we're not talking about rumors from unnamed sources or anything nearly so nebulous, but instead traces of the phone showing up in official government import records, and in a UAProf listing on Samsung's own servers. While its existence looked confirmed, we still lacked any understanding of Samsung's plans for the phone – was it still on-track for a release, and if so, how would it arrive? ...

    We're well used to seeing smartphone retailers offer discounts on their wares, but all too often those savings come with significant restraints: maybe only certain models are covered, or only those form specific manufacturers, and we're often talking about some narrow time window during which you can take advantage of the deal. Yesterday Best Buy revealed a new promotion that isn't without its own limitations, but the generally wide-open structure of it, with comparatively few restriction, has us thinking it's worth sharing with you. Here's how it works: if you're currently an AT&T, ...

    There was a lot of back and forth concerning the camera inside the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S 5 (as in the case of the other specs of the upcoming flagship). Whether we're talking megapixel count, or the inclusion (or omission) of the optical image stabilization, rumors have tried to anticipate the shooter that will probably be the most popular in the Android world of 2014. The image above (original at the source below) isn't very telling with regards of its contents. It has been allegedly snapped with a Samsung SM-G900V device, which according to @evleaks, will be the Verizon variant of ...

    Mid-February is what some European carriers, like SFR from France, predict when it comes to the official Android 4.4 KitKat update for the HTC One. While unlocked versions might receive the refresh earlier --and there are already reports of it being sent out-- American carrier flavors will not lag that much behind. According to the latest official information from HTC, the 4.4 update has been sent to carriers and is currently undergoing testing and certification stages. Those rocking an HTC One on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon, should expect, according to the manufacturer, ...

    After Verizon officially confirmed the name of the device to be the Nokia Lumia Icon, the page was pulled just to reappear again online together with a price tag and everything -- needless to say the page has been pulled once more. However, as the screenshots reveal, the press render of the device featured a Wednesday the 5th date on the Calendar tile. So does this most recently leaked screenshot from the upcoming user guide, revealing a bit from the Nokia Lumia Icon availability. And, as @evleaks rightfully noticed, Wednesday the 5th can easily be either next month, in February, or the ...

    Samsung introduced the Rose Gold and Merlot Red color options for the Note 3 at the beginning of December last year, and has ever since expanded the regions in which these are available. Earlier this month, when we were still busy with CES, @evleaks predicted that the Rose Gold options will arrive on Verizon's line-up. Now, the images above and below are official images of the Verizon Rose Gold Galaxy Note 3, published by Samsung on its official website. There is currently no word on specific pricing and availability for the phablet, but those who want to be a tad different than their ...

    When, oh when, will the Nokia Lumia Icon finally launch? A couple weeks back we got what might be the biggest break in the phone's launch story to date, when a page on Verizon's test site not only revealed the phone's listing prematurely, but also confirmed that Icon name, marking a major shift in how we talk about Lumia phones. But as quickly as it was unearthed, that page vanished. We were hoping that a launch might soon follow, with rumors pointing to a possible January 14 date, but that day came and went without delivering any Lumia Icon. Today we wonder if we're once again right on ...

    Those rocking a Samsung Galaxy Gear smart watch from Verizon should be on the lookout for a software update that will install version V700XXUAMK to their wrists. A Verizon support document for the refresh has been spotted (at the source below) and it lists the changes included with this release, under three categories: stability and performance improvements, solved issues, and changes made. Improvements include advancements for S Voice search, pedometer accuracy, screensaver turn on time, battery life, NFC pairing animation, messaging application, and Today’s Schedule connectivity. ...

    Last week, as we were settling back into our regular roles after a couple days of New Year's celebrations, we heard about one of the best values in smartphones becoming even more attractive, with news of an even lower price for the Motorola Moto G. Instead of paying $180 for the 8GB Moto G, we saw a prepaid version for Verizon showing up in Best Buy stores at a 45% discount, priced at essentially $100. While those weren't supposed to be put out for sale just yet, we saw a leaked doc claiming that formal sales would begin today, on January 9. Well, a little earlier today Motorola out the ...

    It's been clear that T-Mobile was planning to make with the details behind the next phase of its Uncarrier transformation today at the CES for a while now. Last month, we heard about this plan to offer subscribers to competing networks compensation for their early termination fees should they switch to T-Mobile, supposedly worth up to $350. Then early this morning we saw a leaked T-Mobile ad that seemed to confirm the news, while adding the note that it would only apply to users transition from the three big carriers, and was limited to five lines. This afternoon, T-Mobile has finally ...

    We've been waiting for the launch of the Lumia 929 for quite a while now, and last month something odd starting happening with the phone's name. First the phone's seemingly internal codename Icon was leaked – now, we're well used to such codenames coming out at the beginning of a phone's history, but usually we leave those behind as we focus on model numbers and launch names – so why was it popping up then, months after the 929 hit our radar? It didn't take long before the story started getting even more interesting, suggesting that Icon wasn't a codename at all, but how the phone ...

    Even though T-Mobile isn't doing a great job in gaining new customers through the quality of their network, we can't deny that the company is definitely trying to gain some recognition with their ads and strategies against competition. John Legere is already popular for his UnCarrier 4.0 strategy, along with his demeanor during events, and even in how dramatically he gets kicked out of AT&T parties, but now he's also becoming popular for how he plans to steal customers from his competitors. New leaks show a T-Mobile ad that might land on the Internet very soon, and the ad speaks for ...

    A new year means new changes, and over the next twelve months, we'll be seeing the smartphone market grow, new devices arrive, and new software become available for our existing handsets. But before we get to anything new, we're taking a look back at a couple phones from 2013, as Motorola shares details of new pricing for its Moto X while the Moto G hits a carrier low. Motorola's been quite generous with Moto X discounts over the course of the past month, giving shoppers multiple opportunities to score the Android for $150 off its regular no-contract price. We'd been speculating as to ...

    The LTE version of the 2013 Nexus 7 should work on AT&T, T-Mobile, and even Verizon LTE. That last one isn't as easy as you might think that it should be. Why? Verizon hasn't added the IMEI numbers from the Nexus 7 to their "approved" list. There is a work-around, and it's relatively simple -- but it does require either a helpful store manager, or a little bit of social engineering. Hit play, and watch as I go on-location and under-cover to tell you how to get your Nexus 7 to work on Verizon LTE. The only thing keeping the Nexus 7 from working with Verizon's LTE is the lack of its IMEI ...
