A new report suggests that Verizon will have temporary exclusivity on the Moto S smartphone after it is launched in the coming weeks. For those unaware, the Moto S is the company’s own version of the Nexus 6 but with some added Motorola features. The smartphone has already been spotted in leaks before, so its existence is not really a surprise. There’s no word on whether the Moto S will be brought to world markets, but since Motorola’s ambitions stretch far beyond the U.S. now, we’re guessing it won’t be...

  After numerous complaints from both customers and the FCC, Verizon has announced that they are canceling their plans to throttle users who still have grandfathered unlimited plans during times of peak traffic. Verizon’s original plan was to throttle the top 5 percent unlimited LTE data users. This was anyone who still had unlimited data with LTE, was not in contract, and used more than 4.7 GB per month. Naturally, customers were not a fan of this idea and complained about “net neutrality” and similar topics....

The existence of the Motorola Droid Turbo is barely a surprise to us. But since it’s still a rumored device, we’re learning something new about it almost every week. This new leak comes through GFX Bench which shows us the chipset running on the smartphone as well as the storage, RAM, display size and resolution. Unsurprisingly, the smartphone is shown to be running the Snapdragon 805 chipset with the Adreno 420 GPU which is the best chipset on offer from Qualcomm at the moment. There’s also going to be a 5.2 inch...

We’ve heard murmurs of Motorola’s upcoming Droid Turbo smartphone over the past few weeks, but haven’t heard or seen anything conclusive. But thanks to a new leak from Hello Moto HK, we now have a brief idea of what to expect from the upcoming Verizon Droid. Much like the Droid series from last year, the device has a Kevlar patterned back cover as well as “front-ported speakers” much like the new Moto X and the Moto G. The handset also supposedly has capacitive navigation keys on the bottom bezel instead...

LG launched two new midrange smartphones known as the L Bello and L Fino some weeks ago. A new FCC listing has now hinted at the arrival of the L Fino through Verizon Wireless. The smartphone shown in the listing has the model number LG VS810PP with support for LTE bands 4 and 13. Naturally, the device is shown to be running on CDMA networks. It is possible that the smartphone will be launched as a prepaid offering by Verizon given the hardware on offer. One interesting aspect mentioned in FCC’s page is the battery capacity...

America’s largest carrier Verizon has just unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5. The tablet was announced by AT&T just yesterday, so the timing couldn’t have been better from Big Red. But unlike AT&T, Verizon is only selling the 10.5 inch model, with no word on the 8.4 inch variant as of yet. As far as the pricing is concerned, customers should be looking to shell out $599.99 without a contract or $499.99 with a two year agreement from the carrier. Verizon specifies that the tablet will come with support for...
