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”.

Here’s what Obama’s net neutrality stance really accomplished

Here’s what Obama’s net neutrality stance really accomplished

Today, President Obama sided with you and I. Like most of you reading this (sadly, not all), “Barry” wants his Internet free and open, just like it is right now. Barry wants to be able to check his stock quotes and brag his holdings up via Facebook, just like he can (but probably doesn’t) today. though the FCC doesn’t necessarily have to heed his words any more than they would yours or mine, the leader of the free world siding with his constituents makes a bolder statement than any — well, statement.

Verizon joins Samsung Gear S smartwatch club

Verizon joins Samsung Gear S smartwatch club

Verizon has joined the Samsung Gear S party, launching the 3G-enabled smartwatch today, though you'll pay a pretty penny for the privilege of equipping your wrist. The wearable - priced up by AT&T and T-Mobile USA last week - comes with its own cellular connectivity baked in, rather than relying solely on a Bluetooth-tethered smartphone to operate. However, that doesn't mean you can avoid a smartphone altogether, and that's where the Gear S starts to get expensive.

Verizon Ellipsis 8 takes another shot at budget tablet market

Verizon Ellipsis 8 takes another shot at budget tablet market

Continuing a tradition it set last year, Verizon is outing the next iteration of its self-branded tablet, appropriately named the Ellipsis 8. Aside from the increment in number and, therefore, in size, the tablet represents a rather minor upgrade from last year's Ellipsis 7 model. Of course, hardware specs alone aren't the main focus of this mid-range tablet. The Ellipsis 8, in particular, is meant to showcase Verizon's doubly fast XLTE network. The videos you'll be able to stream or download because of that is the cherry on top.

Verizon and AT&T team on VoLTE (and up 4G data to T-Mo CEO’s amusement)

Verizon and AT&T team on VoLTE (and up 4G data to T-Mo CEO’s amusement)

Verizon and AT&T plan to switch on cross-network VoLTE calls in 2015, the two carriers have confirmed today, opening the door to first voice over LTE calls and then one day video calling and messaging. VoLTE launched on Verizon's network in September, allowing handsets like the iPhone 6 to use the data network for VoIP rather than traditional methods, with the addition of HD-quality audio too. However, for the moment, VoLTE only supports calls between subscribers on the same network, something Verizon and AT&T are planning to change.
