    Walmart isn't known for its marketplace tendencies, but it does list products from third-party sellers on its site for sale. It's no Amazon, yet every so often, you get a little pleasant surprise or two. No, not always low prices, always. A company named Talkie Tech has listed two- and three-packs of iLLumi-branded screen protectors for the Samsung Gear S3. Promotional pictures may seem to show off the design of a Gear S3. SamMobile reports of three variants: the Classic, the Frontier and the Explorer. We figure that if there's any kernel of truth to these pictures, we may be seeing the ...

    Add "waterproof" to almost anything in tech and you probably would not get much of a complaint. Now add in the value component: are you going to be able to save money and keep liquids out of these circuits? Oh, and feel good about your purchase? Well, if you're living on a shoestring or just need a better burner phone for your needs, AT&T has a GoPhone for you. The Kyocera Hydro SHORE has Android 5.1, a five-inch display, is ingress rated at both IPX5 (water spray) and IPX7 (1m submersion for 30 minutes), and its touchscreen can be operated while wet. It runs on a Snapdragon 210, has ...

    No one needs a reminder of how many mobile payment apps we have in this world. For some, like those on Windows 10 Mobile, they only have one they can even use. For others, the options just get plain ridiculous. But as promised, it seems that big box retailer Walmart has followed up on its promise to spread its QR-based mobile payments method to all of its stores. It officially announced that registers at over 4,600 stores across the United States can now take Walmart Pay. The payment method involves opening up the Walmart app, tapping into the Walmart Pay feature and lining up the payment ...

    After taking the Moto X Pure Edition to the unlocked market last year, Motorola has decided to open up the fourth-generation Moto G to not just the United States' GSM networks, but to its CDMA ones, too. The Moto G⁴ and Moto G⁴ Plus are both up for pre-orders right now at the Motorola site. Both phones can be customized in Moto Maker and financed through Motorola.

    What can a single retailer do to compete against mobile payment services from tech industry leaders with widespread support across many stores and even many countries around the world? Well, if said retailer is Walmart or Target, it definitely has a chance of obstructing Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Android Pay’s growth. The world’s largest company by revenue, as well as the biggest private employer and the second largest retail platform by merchandise volume, behind Alibaba as of last month, first took the wraps off its proprietary digital wallet app back in December. Then, in April, it ...

    Walmart apparently sees no sense in touching your phone to a little sales terminal and having people on their way with groceries in hand. In fact, the big box retailer theoretically doesn't even need new point-of-sales hardware with its new Walmart Pay system. Going against Android Pay, Apple Pay and Samsung Pay, Walmart Pay is a mobile payments system not based on tap-and-go Near Field Communication tech, but on an old standby — the QR code. iPhone users can pull up their Walmart app, head to the appropriate tab and scan the code that shows up on the payment terminal. A linked credit or ...

    Trust us, we don't really think of Walmart as the first place we'd buy our smartphones from, but given the right circumstances, you just might. So, when Walmart goes out and says that it's discounting all stock of iPhones and Galaxy phones. Be it the iPhone SE or the iPhone 6s, heck, maybe even the iPhone 5c, you'll get $100 off. Galaxy S7? Galaxy S6? Galaxy S5 Active, even? Sure, those are $150 off. Here are the catches, though: the phone must be purchased on AT&T, Verizon or Sprint — Walmart was able to get agreements with those three carriers, but not T-Mobile — and must be ...

    It started with Google Wallet which then turned into Android Pay and then it was facing competition from Apple Pay but then Samsung wanted to get in with the action, so it bought a startup and released Samsung Pay and then LG had to give mobile payments a try because if chaebol number one can do it, why not number two, but then hold on a second, Walmart's here to be its own beacon and now what, Target? Yes, Target seems to be mulling over entry into the mobile payments field after its largest big box rival in the United States went out to launch Walmart Pay. It has not contacted card ...

    Is the mobile payment world big enough for an iOS-restricted service, an Android-dedicated app, a digital wallet product that functions only on select Samsung Galaxy phones, and a cross-platform checkout service exclusive to Walmart stores? Probably not, or at least not yet, judging from Apple Pay usage statistics during the year’s busiest shopping day. But for some reason, the largest retailer in the United States (and around the globe) remains stubbornly opposed to existent mobile transaction solutions, seeing an opening in a very much fledgling market, and looking to take on ...

    Purchasing mobile gear of any kind around Turkey Day is always wise. Waiting until the last minute to score the best possible Black Friday deals is the complete opposite. Granted, the temptation may feel irresistible, but unless you want to risk getting body slammed by a fellow desperate bargain hunter for that coveted final discounted Apple Watch, it’s good to know beforehand what to expect from every retailer and how to avoid the holiday shopping frenzy. Luckily, many electronics merchants, actual device manufacturers and carriers included, have either already kicked off early Black ...

    Walmart let rivals Target and Best Buy get an early start on Black Friday promotion exhibition, but as you probably sensed, the world’s largest company by revenue and America’s number one discount retailer couldn’t wait until November 27 to reveal what kind of deals it has up its sleeve for the year’s biggest shopping day. More like days, as it turns out, with online special offers underway at 12:01 a.m. PT on Thanksgiving morning, then brick and mortar stores open at 6 p.m. on November 26. Chances are therefore you won’t find anything good on the actual Black Friday, as most ...

    Walmart recently became famous for offering a pre-launch discounts for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C on launch date. The company dropped the price to $189 and $79 respectively, which may be seen as little in the eyes of some, but surely interesting when compared to other retailers that simply match the price of the device in their stores. The story will repeat itself again on November 1st. If you're interested on the 16GB Wi-Fi variant of the iPad Air, you can get it for $479 in Walmart, though we sadly have no confirmed details that this $20 discount will apply to every single model as ...

    It's the common thing for retailers to drop the price of Apple products when they're a week or two away from being refreshed. It's also the common deal for carriers like Sprint to drop the price as well if they haven't met their quota of sales. What's odd is to see a retailer do this when we are still a ton of months away from the expected refresh of the next-generation iPhone. In this case we're talking about Walmart, which just decided to drop the price of the iPhone 5 to just $129 after the usual 2-year contract, and the iPhone 4S to just $39. Now what makes this sale even more unique ...

    Apple's iPad mini is the love and hate tablet of the media today. Some love it because it truly is a beautiful design, and others don't since it packs a low-resolution display at times when high-resolution is the new thing. Regardless of your love or hate for it, Walmart is now selling it for a discount, and if you know Apple products, you'll know discounts are anything but common. Starting today you can buy the 16GB iPad mini for just $299 on Walmart. This is an online sale, and it requires a store pick-up, so simply buy it online and the reserve at any store of your liking. This is the ...
