Nexus 6: where you can (and can’t) get one

Nexus 6: where you can (and can’t) get one

If you’ve been itching to get your hands on a Nexus 6, the wait is probably tiring for you. This time around, Google has broken the mold with their Nexus flagship. What used to roll out via Google Play, then take weeks or more to hit a carrier here or there is now this long, slow trickle from every avenue. The Play Store doesn’t even have reliable stock levels, and it seems at least one carrier is pushing their release back to give potential buyers a “better experience”.

HTC One M8 for Windows sneaks into T-Mobile

HTC One M8 for Windows sneaks into T-Mobile

Windows Phone devices outside of the Nokia, now Microsoft, Lumia line do exist but they might as well be non-existent given the rather low profile they have. HTC and Microsoft, however, wanted to change all that and offer the platform's fans a truly high-end option. Now, the HTC One M8 with Windows edition has finally completed its US carrier round, rather quietly creeping into T-Mobile's online catalog. With HTC's admirable design and hardware, this smartphone could very well be the Windows Phone flagship, if the OS can catch up.

T-Mobile, AT&T announce Moto 360 availability

T-Mobile, AT&T announce Moto 360 availability

You want a smartwatch, and by many accounts, the Moto 360 is the best you can get right now. Classic style and bleeding edge technology come together to form one pretty great device. You might also want to snap the Android Wear trendsetter via your carrier, but who’s going to have it? When will they carry it? The device is unavailable via Google Play right now, and unless you can get one via a store like Best Buy or via Amazon, your carrier may be the best option.

Sony Xperia Z3 arrives at T-Mobile

Sony Xperia Z3 arrives at T-Mobile

Earlier this month T-Mobile revealed that the Sony Xperia Z3 smartphone would be arriving on its shelves October 29, and as promised the handset went live on the carrier's site yesterday. As with most phones, subscribers have the option to buy it outright from the carrier or shell out in piecemeal fashion via monthly payments (for those who qualify). In case you missed it, we got our hands on Sony's sleek smartphone back in September, detailing all it has to offer alongside a large gallery of the device.

Alcatel Onetouch Pop 7 tablet arrives at MetroPCS

Alcatel Onetouch Pop 7 tablet arrives at MetroPCS

MetroPCS users have gotten a new prepaid tablet option, with T-Mobile announcing that the budget-range Alcatel Onetouch Pop 7 slate has arrived at its prepaid stores. This brings a prepaid option for those who want a tablet with a data plan sans contract, and is a direct jab at competing services, with T-Mobile's John Legere saying, "We are blazing trails again – this time with tablets for the prepaid market through MetroPCS. Want a tablet from Boost or Cricket? They've got nothing."

T-Mobile complains about low-band spectrum auction

T-Mobile complains about low-band spectrum auction

T-Mobile CEO John Legere talks a lot of smack. On stage, he’s a cyclone of cursing and boasting, snide remarks about the competition, as well as a complainer and apologist for T-Mobile. The company he leads seems to need all that help, too. As much as Legere brags up T-Mobile, signs of just how limited their service really is peek out now and then. In asking the FCC for more spectrum at a better price, T-Mobile is also admitting they’re not very competitive — but not humbly so.

Nexus 6: big for carriers, OnePlus, and Motorola

Even if you’re a fan of Nexus (I am) and are in the market for a new phone, there’s one important aspect of the newest Nexus that will make you think twice about swarming the Play Store October 29 to snap one up. At $649, the Nexus 6 is the most expensive starting price for a Nexus phone ever.

Iliad drops T-Mobile bid, says new offer wasn’t “entertained”

Iliad drops T-Mobile bid, says new offer wasn’t “entertained”

French carrier Iliad has decided that pursuing T-Mobile is no longer worth it. The spurned company has dropped their efforts, citing Deutsche Telekom’s refusal to “entertain” their latest offer. T-Mobile fans may be breathing a sigh of relief, but the failed bid doesn’t change much. Deutsche Telekom still has T-Mobile on the block, and are quickly cycling through prospective buyers. A profitable, growing carrier, the upstart Iliad might have actually been the best bet for T-Mobile.

Nexus 6 details and a DROID for Verizon

Nexus 6 details and a DROID for Verizon

This morning we dug into the FCC documents for Motorola’s next big release. Really big, as it were - a full 6-inches of display to take on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the iPhone 6 Plus. We’ve heard rumors that Google would pick up Motorola’s next big release as a "Nexus 6", working with 6-inches of display. We’ve also heard that Verizon would be getting the device on their carrier. What we hadn’t heard so far - but what we can basically (nearly) confirm without Motorola saying so is that Verizon’s model will be the same, but with DROID branding.
