[Deal Alert] Get the Black or White Moto X for FREE on Verizon with Special Promo

Nov 15, 2013 - 11:23 AM - by dgstorm

Lately Big Red has been offering some surprisingly good deals, and today's deal alert falls into that category. You can get the plain black or white Moto X from Verizon for FREE on a new contract with a special promo code. Normally you can grab the device for $49 bucks through the Verizon site, and you will still need that much money if you want to get the customized Moto Maker version. Despite this, if you use the promo code vzwdeal at checkout for the black or white version directly from Verizon's website, it will knock the last remaining balance down to zero.

The offer is very limited and may run out soon, so you might want to check this out quickly.

Apple vs Samsung Dispute Back in the Courts; Apple Wants $380 Million More

Nov 14, 2013 - 12:56 PM - by dgstorm

It seems like so long ago (because it was) that Apple defeated Samsung in a California court winning a $1 Billion+ verdict against the company. Shortly thereafter the award was reduced by Judge Lucy Koh down to $600 Million. This was because the judge felt the way the jury calculated the damages during the trial were erroneous. The new re-trial for that particular part of the case just kicked off yesterday, and Apple is trying to prove that Judge Koh should increase the damages by another $380 Million. This would put the total amount nearly back to what it was before she reduced it.

This new trial has eight jurors assigned to the case. They will be determining just how much Samsung should owe Apple for infringing on five patents. Apple came up with this $380 million figure, claiming they calculated their lost profits and royalties owed to them. Apple is also claiming that Samsung made over $3.5 billion in revenue by selling infringing products.

The decision in this case should come within just a few weeks. It's important to note that this is a separate damages trial in this case. It is not the Samsung appeal case for the entire verdict. That trial is set in March of 2014.

Android 4.3 Rolling Out Now to AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S4

Nov 14, 2013 - 11:52 AM - by dgstorm

Samsung Galaxy S4 owners on AT&T can start doing a happy dance now. The Android 4.3 update, version I337UCUEMJ9, is being pushed out to your device. Of course, as usual, it will roll out in chunks. This update already hit Verizon and Sprint. This is a bit surprising considering Big Red is usually the last carrier to get new updates. The update is a massive 719 MB so you will probably want to get it over WiFi.

This update gives you support for using the SGS4 with the Galaxy Gear smartwatch as well as Samsung's Knox security.

ISIS Mobile Payments Go Live Nationwide on Verizon, AT&T & T-Mobile

Nov 14, 2013 - 11:34 AM - by dgstorm

The ISIS mobile payment system has been in development testing for over a year in Salt Lake City, Utah and Austin, Texas; however, the testing is complete and the new service is rolling out today nationwide. The ISIS mobile payment platform was developed in a partnership between Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile. An updated version of the Isis mobile wallet is now available in the Google Play Store. The app and service allow you to load only American Express or Chase cards into a virtual wallet on NFC-enabled smartphones. This lets you pay for goods and services with a swipe of your phone instead of a credit card or cash.

Supposedly, the service is now available at over 200,000 retail locations across the United States. Here's a list of some of the more popular phones on Verizon which are capable of utilizing the NFC based service:
  • Motorola DROID Maxx
  • Motorola DROID Ultra
  • Motorola DROID Mini
  • Motorola DROID RAZR M
  • Motorola Moto X
  • Samsung Galaxy S4
  • Samsung Galaxy S3
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 2
  • LG G2

So far, the Isis app and service has been receiving horrible reviews on the Google Play Store. Of course this is mostly for the previous versions, but is also because of the limited amount of cards available on the service. It does not bode well for a smooth launch of the service, potentially putting a black eye on the entire NFC-based mobile payment system.

Specs Comparison of Moto G, Moto X and Nexus 5

Nov 13, 2013 - 12:33 PM - by dgstorm

Since these three devices are the current pinnacle of customization and are designed with the tinkerers/modders in mind, we thought it would be worthwhile to offer a comparison between the new Motorola Moto G, the Motorola Moto X and the Google Nexus 5. With a $180 off-contract price, the new Moto G could be worth grabbing simply as a backup, a secondary mod testing device, or any number of creative uses. Because of this it could give the Nexus 5 a run for its money.

Of course, this also depends on how easy it is to unlock the bootloader for the Moto G. The Nexus 5 is already built to be super-friendly to the tweakers of the world while Motorola is not so much. Still... knowing our developer community, the Moto G will probably be ready for the same treatment in short order.

Here's the primary spec comparison:

What do you guys think of the new Moto G compared to these other devices? At this price it is very tempting...

  • UltraPixel rear camera

Verizon just tweeted that the Moto G will be coming to their prepaid service some time in Q1 of 2014. No other details have been shared just yet, but we will keep you updated.

Motorola Officially Unveils the Moto G; Specs & Features Detailed Plus Video

Nov 13, 2013 - 10:59 AM - by dgstorm

The Moto G was officially unveiled this morning. The device could hold some surprising value considering its price. It will be available for $179/£135 for the 8GB version or $199/£159 for the 16GB version. Both of these prices are unlocked and off contract. Here's a breakdown of specs:
  • 4.5-inch LCD, HD (1280 x 720), 326ppi
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, quad-core @ 1.2GHz, Adreno 305
  • RAM 1GB
  • 8GB or 16GB Storage
  • Battery 2070 mAh
  • 5 MP rear LED flash Camera
  • 1.3 MP front Cam
  • 3G/GSM
  • GPS, GLONASS, microUSB, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 LE
  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, KitKat update guaranteed in January
  • Dimensions 129.9 x 65.9 x 6-11.6mm
  • Black/White, replaceable colored backplates

Obviously the big hit to this is the lack of LTE support. Regardless, for many average users this could be a tremendous deal. We can see folks snapping this up and heading to T-Mobile for a very affordable total package price. Here's a breakdown of the availability of the device:
  • Initial launch within the next few weeks: Brazil, UK, Spain, Italy, Ireland, Belgium, Germany, Colombia, Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Argentina, France, Peru, Chile, Honk Kong, Netherlands, Singapore.
  • Second launch starting rollout in January 2014: US, India, Guatemala, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, Malaysia, Costa Rica, Australia, Honduras, Ghana, New Zealand, El Salvador, Kuwait, Indonesia, Panama, Oman, Ecuador, Uruguay, Jordan, Venezuela, Paraguay, Dominican Republic , UAE.

With these prices this device could become the budget-friendly device of choice across the globe in a short period of time.

NVIDIA Demos Tegra Note 7 Tab in a Couple of Videos

Nov 12, 2013 - 3:24 PM - by dgstorm

Above and below we have a couple of cool videos for NVIDIA's Tegra Note 7 Android tab. The new Tegra 4-equipped tablet just went into retail stores recently and is designed to showcase the incredible power of the Tegra 4. It's an amazing bonus that it sells in the $200 dollar range, especially considering all of the features and power.

This device stands out not just because of its internal power though. It also comes with a slew of interesting features. For example, NVIDIA claims the Tegra Note tablets have superior audio with the “widest frequency range in a tablet”. Apparently, the camera is very impressive too. NVIDIA shares that the camera in the tablet s impressive too and includes the “world’s first mobile computational photography architecture.” This supposedly enables special effects including Tap-to-Track automatic tracking.

Finally, in one of the videos we have included, you get to see the DirectStylus demoed on the device. It's a passive stylus technology that NVIDIA bills as equal to an active stylus despite being cheaper to make. It can supposedly detect pressure levels and even the shape of the stylus tip. This is meant to give you a more creative real-world like experience.

With this device on the market, both Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle Fire HD will have a serious new competitor.

[Deal Alert] Verizon LG G2 is Now FREE with a New Contract Until November 11th

Nov 08, 2013 - 11:44 AM - by dgstorm

This is pretty phenomenal news for Verizon customers ready to grab a new LG G2. With a special promo code, you can pick up the flagship device from LG for FREE on a new two-year contract. The specs on this device are absolutely top-notch, so this is a ridiculous deal. It's hard to believe that one of the most cutting edge Android smartphones (hardware-wise), can be had for such a phenomenal offer.

Apparently when you have weaker brand recognition like LG that's the result. Either way, it's great for many consumers, and it is only available until November 11th. Check out the source link below for this great offer.

What? You didn't think we would leave you hanging without the coupon code did you? Here it is: VZWDEAL.
