This week a set of photos shows the Verizon 4G LTE certified version of the ASUS-made Nexus 7 from Google appearing in the flesh. This is after months of the device being in limbo after having been suggested to work with every kind of 4G LTE in the country at launch. Verizon, it would seem, has just now gotten to the point where they'll be selling the device on their own. Google, it would seem, will not be selling the device directly.
Just because a smartphone can flex, doesn't mean it will on a regular basis. The LG G Flex does have the term in its title, but - rather similar to the S Pen in the Samsung Galaxy Note series - the amount of times we're seeing the feature in action is not one whole heck of a lot. Here LG goes gigantic - with a device that's curved and CAN flex, but does a lot better at describing its best uses when you first slide it into your pocket.
Kids these days are quite lucky, especially when it comes to the amount of technology available for their benefit. Now even mobile devices are free game for kids. Over at CES 2014, Techno Source and KD Interactive are unveiling two new mobile devices, including probably the world's first smartphone designed especially for young ones.
Today Motorola has made clear that the Verizon version of the Moto X smartphone will be first to work with Android 4.4 KitKat. This update to the newest version of the Android mobile operating system will likely spread to the rest of the Moto X iterations in the very near future, but rests here with the big red carrier in the USA first.
The very first modern Nokia tablet will be arriving in the form of the Nokia Lumia 2520, and it'll be hitting both the likes of AT&T and Verizon here in the United States. With Verizon, the tablet has been announced today as coming on the 21st of November and offered in both on- and off-contract iterations. While this is not a first for tablets going off-contract with the carrier, it's unique in that the idea is being presented so up-front.
This November those wishing to roll forward with the BlackBerry 10 universe will be able to see it happen on the biggest and most powerful handset ever to run the operating system. This device works with a 5-inch display with 720p resolution and a 1.7GHz processor under the hood. It'll be available from Verizon exclusively, too, so you know you're amongst a somewhat elite club of owners - so to speak.
Wearable technology is mostly limited to smartwatches and smart glasses, though other types have been -- and actively are -- being developed. A particularly unique type is clothing, of which we've seen samples in the past. The latest to surface is the "M" from Motiif, a so-called smart trench coat that features an integrated 4G LTE connection and a smartphone charger.
C Spire announced in late October that it would be getting the iPad Air on its 4G network. When the regional wireless carrier announced that it would be getting the iPad Air, it offered no details on exactly when Apple's latest tablet would land for its customers. C Spire has now announced that the Apple iPad Air is available to purchase on its 4G LTE network.
This afternoon the folks at T-Mobile have made clear their intent to push forth their own unique - however that may be - Nexus 5 to the public. This version of the device should by all means be essentially identical to the version users will be able to purchase from Google Play online, but here T-Mobile USA aims to bring it with their own unique pricing plan. This device will appear in T-Mobile retail stores on the 20th of November.
AT&T has been working to expand its coverage map, something that will grow over the course of 2014 due to a finalized acquisition of Alltel's assets. Following this, the carrier has announced an expansion to its 4G LTE network in particular into fourteen new regions, some of which are fairly small mid-western locations.
