Friday is here once again, which means that for many of us, the weekend has already started. Of course, today was the big iPhone 5 launch, and there was no lack of news stories to go along with it. Before the iPhone 5 landed in the US, it launched in the UK and Japan and was greeted by long lines. We also had a couple of drop tests hit the Internet - in the first one we saw, the iPhone 5 didn't fare too well, but in the second drop test, it emerged victorious over the Samsung Galaxy S III. We also talk about all of the different options you have on your disposal on this launch day, so if you're thinking of picking up an iPhone 5, be sure to check that out.
Samsung's popular and impressive looking Galaxy Note II was finally announced earlier this week as coming to all major US carriers. It was good news indeed, but none of the carriers have made any formal announcements -- except for US Cellular. They are planning to beat the others to the punch this time around and have already announced pricing ($299) and a late October launch. And now they're up for pre-order.
Welcome to Wednesday evening everyone! Today brought us HTC's highly-anticipated event, and it did not disappoint. It was there that HTC revealed two brand new Windows Phone 8 devices, the Windows Phone 8X and the Windows Phone 8S. Went went hands-on with both devices not long after they were announced, and shortly before HTC announced that these new phones will be landing at Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile in November. HTC released a video detailing the "design journey" of the 8X and 8S, and Nokia had some choice words about HTC's "innovation" later on in the day.
Samsung's Galaxy Note II may be confirmed for all "major" US carriers, but so far only US Cellular has put its money where its mouth is and announced a price for the 5.5-inch phablet. The 4G LTE version of the phone is headed to US Cellular stores in late October, the carrier has confirmed, priced at $299.99 with new, two-year agreement.
Samsung has just announced some excellent news folks. We had a feeling this was coming but this morning Samsung's confirmed their new and impressive Galaxy Note II smartphone phablet will be arriving on all major US carriers, starting in November. The Galaxy Note II will launch nationwide on all carriers just like the smaller Galaxy S III.
If you were deciding between the Samsung Galaxy Note II and the Nokia Lumia 920 (and/or Lumia 820, for that matter), but didn't know if they'd all be working on your favorite carrier AT&T, today's you're lucky day! A tip has been dropped today about the Galaxy Note II on how it not only appears to be hitting AT&T as its predecessor the original Note did, but will be appearing on October 21st, the same day as the new Nokia Lumia lineup.
Tomorrow's the big day, folks. Apple is set to hold an event tomorrow, and all signs are pointing to the reveal of the iPhone 5. Ahead of the event, however, came plenty of iPhone 5 news and rumors today. We heard today that iPhone 5 pre-orders will open up on September 14, and one analyst is saying that 10 million iPhone 5s will be sold this month alone. We also take a closer look at what we can expect in iOS 6 (which will be launching with the new iPhone) and we recap all of the news and rumors that have surfaced in this very long lead up to the reveal.
The next-generation Samsung Galaxy Note II is bringing on some new powerful features in its international version in the form of Airview, a brand new user interface that appears when you pop your S-Pen from its slot! Though we've still got no confirmation on when, if, or how this device will be appearing in the Untied States on US carriers, we can see here that Samsung does, once again, intend on bringing the device stateside soon enough. This device is next in line in Samsung's Note branded family of devices with a 5.5-inch display and a brand new bit of S-Pen hardware as well.
EE has revealed its first line-up of devices, including Samsung's Galaxy S III, as well as hinting at a possible iPhone 5 LTE reveal imminently. The heavy Apple hint was dropped during the new 4G carrier's launch in London, with chief exec Olaf Swantee teasing that there was a new device "very soon." However, the new iPhone isn't the only device EE subscribers will be able to use: there's a range from Nokia, HTC, Huawei and more.
