Sprint Picking up the Sony Xperia Z3 in Q4

Aug 29, 2014 - 11:14 AM - by dgstorm

For folks who were hoping the Sony Xperia Z3 would come to a US carrier, we have some good news and bad news for you today. The good news is that it is coming to a US carrier. The bad news is only bad news if you aren't on Sprint, because that's the carrier who will be picking it up.

Of course, it's still possible some of the other carriers will pick it up too. In fact, in the past, both AT&T and T-Mobile have sold some of the Xperia line phones. It's good to see Sony devices finally spreading out, but we don't expect massive success in the US for Sony until they work out a deal with Verizon.

Incidentally, it is Softbank who is picking up the device, so it will also be sold in Japan through them as well.

Sony's official unveiling of the device will occur on September 3rd. That's the same day Samsung is unveiling the Galaxy Note 4.

Do you hope the Xperia Z3 will come to your carrier of choice?

Aug 28, 2014 - 11:42 AM - by dgstorm

Sony's mobile division is soldiering on with three new devices in their Xperia line. They just teased the Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact & Xperia Z3 tablet, and the video teaser indicates a September 3rd official reveal date. Their video also teases that all three devices will be water-resistant.


We still have no idea if anyone other than AT&T will carry any of these devices in the US, which is typically the case with Sony mobile products. Sometimes there are exceptions, but those are few and far between. Sound off if you would like to see Sony's products come to your neck of the woods.

Moto S and/or Nexus X Might Come in Two Variants: 5.9" & 5.2"

Aug 28, 2014 - 10:39 AM - by dgstorm

Trying to cut through the confusion of all the latest Motorola smartphones news is like trying to cut down a tree with a butter knife. Despite this, we are going to attempt to disseminate the latest intel, although we suspect it might simply add more to the confusion. Today's story only refers the Moto S, the Moto X+1 and the Nexus X.

Supposedly, Motorola is testing a 5.2-inch version of the Moto S and a 5.9-inch version of the Moto S. The word on the street is that they will be gauging whether to release a 5.2-inch version of the device based upon public reaction of the Moto X+1. Because of this, Google may be planning to clean up some of the unused devices in the supply chain. According to these supply chain sources, Google may repurpose some of those 5.2-inch Moto S devices into 5.2-inch versions of the Nexus X, even though the primary version of the Nexus X will be a 5.9-inch device.

Beyond this industry speculation regarding hop-scotching devices, we also have additional confirmation that Google plans to launch the Nexus X before Halloween. Sound off and let us know which size Nexus X you would prefer, if this intel turns out to be true.

LG G Watch R Specs and Official Press Pics Unveiled

Aug 28, 2014 - 10:15 AM - by dgstorm

It appears that LG was paying attention to the negative publicity regarding their LG G Watch and the positive publicity regarding the upcoming Motorola 360 Smartwatch. They went back to the drawing board with their LG G Watch R follow-up device.

They just officially revealed the final press pics and specs of the device and they are pretty impressive to say the least. Here's the breakdown, and you can check out more pics in the thread below.
  • 1.3-inch P-OLED Display (320 x 320)
  • 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400
  • 4GB Storage (eMMC)
  • 512MB RAM
  • 410mAh Battery
  • IP67 Certification
  • Sensors: 9-Axis (Gyro/ Accelerometer/ Compass), Barometer, PPG
  • Color: Black
  • Frame: stainless steel
  • Strap: 22mm calf skin leather strap

One other interesting facet of this device is that 100% of its face is a Plastic OLED (P-OLED). LG hasn't shared pricing yet, nor did they reveal actual launch dates, but they did indicate a Q4 release.

We will update you as soon as they are more specific. In the mean-time, sound off and let us know if this will give the Moto 360 some decent competition in this sector.

Four New Videos Tease the Upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Aug 27, 2014 - 10:26 AM - by dgstorm

Even though none of the videos included in this quick news blast actually reveal the Galaxy Note 4, all of them are meant to hint at the capabilities of the device once Samsung launches it on September 3rd.

Of course, these videos are simply Sammy's way of amping up the hype machine before their big launch, but we can't blame them for that. The Galaxy S5 wasn't exactly a big hit for the company (compared to their other products).

Check out all four of the videos in the thread below and let us know if you plan on snapping up the Galaxy Note 4 when it launches or if you will wait things out to see the Motorola Nexus 6/X.
