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...

While the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus may be the first devices on Verizon with support for making voice calls over LTE and HD Voice, Android devices are not being left out. Verizon is now pushing out an update to users of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G2 to make them VoLTE compatible. Verizon is calling their variant of VoLTE “Advanced Calling 1.0.” Despite the name, it’s still voice over LTE. And while your voice calls are going over the data network, Verizon will be billing you for voice minutes and not data usage. If you...

Verizon customers are now able to upgrade their devices a couple of months ahead of schedule. This is if your upgrade due date is on or before November 15. The carrier claims that this is a limited period promotion, with no word on its duration just yet, so it might not be long before they decide to pull the plug. Considering that the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus were launched only recently, a move like this was much expected from Verizon. By allowing customers to upgrade early, the carrier is allowing them to buy the latest devices in...

Motorola announced an upgraded version of touchless controls known as the Moto Voice along with the new Moto X. At the time, the feature was only limited to the handset, but Motorola has changed that now by bringing support for older devices such as the first gen Moto X as well as the Verizon Droid Ultra, Droid Mini and the Droid Maxx from last year. The Play Store listing mentions that the Moto 360 smartwatch is now supported with the feature as well, which is good news. Customers of 2013 Motorola devices will be disappointed to know...

HTC launched the Desire 610 handset along with the Desire 816 in February. Being a midrange handset, the smartphone has made quite an impact in global markets. And it seems like the smartphone will also be making its way through Verizon Wireless if an FCC listing is anything to go by. Since it’s still early days, there’s no word on how much the device will cost or when it will be available. Verizon will not be the only carrier to sell the handset though, as AT&T has been selling the Desire 610 for quite some time now. An...

The Verizon branded LG G2 has started receiving a firmware update from the carrier which is expected to bring support for the much awaited VoLTE networks. Verizon is expected to launch the service anytime now, so it’s only fair that one of its key flagships from last year is getting an update carrying support. The Samsung Galaxy S5 is the only other device on the network to support this feature. The update changes the firmware version to VS98025B and brings a bunch of other changes to the fore as well. The complete changelog...

Verizon’s HTC One M8 was supposed to be updated to Android 4.4.3 last month, but the rollout was delayed because of a GPS issue that HTC discovered later on. The company promised to release the update by mid-September, and it looks like it will be keeping that promise, as the 4.4.3 update is slated to roll out to Verizon’s HTC One M8 this Wednesday. As HTC had said, the Android 4.4.3 update will be the last update for the HTC One M8 before Android L comes out (unless Google rolls out another serious update to KitKat before...
