While a few other countries have gotten Lollipop on the LG G3, the update still hasn’t come to the US yet. But thanks to a tweet from LG, it looks like the update is almost here. Introducing Lollipop: a sweet treat for your #LGG3. pic.twitter.com/yg0qPqgzjM — LG USA Mobile (@LGUSAMobile) January 23, 2015 Even though the update is probably close, it will still have to go through the carriers’ approval before it will be pushed out to the users. But for LG G3 owners in the US, does this sound like good news to you? Source:...

In a new video released from T-Mobile CEO John Legere, T-Mobile is announcing a new program they are calling “Smartphone Equality.” This new program will enable customers, regardless of their credit score, to purchase new devices at the best deals offered. In order to qualify for this plan, which starts January 25th, T-Mobile states that customers must have paid at least the last 12 months of their bills on time. This qualifies to customers both on postpaid and pre-paid plans. When announcing this plan, T-Mobile CEO John...

It seems that the Google Play Edition (GPE) devices might be done for. As of today, Google is no longer selling the HTC One (M8) Google Play Edition. This was the only device available for sale, so for now this program is closed. While it could be a stock issue, the program also could be closing. With not as many manufacturers putting out GPE devices last year and the Nexus 6 costing $649 unlocked, it seems more likely that the latter is the case. However, since this device exists in some peoples’ pockets (along with a few older...

Yes, boys and girls, it’s that time of year again. The time we really don’t know anything about the way the mobile industry will be shaped, transformed and, hopefully, innovated over the ensuing eight to ten months. Not for sure, though we can’t help but feel fired up for what’s to come. And speculate, and gossip, and engage in incessant rumormongering. Then, the world heavyweight title contenders go official, and comparisons galore. Before long, the cycle reboots, and the rumor bonanza starts all over. It’s irritating in a...

With more than 600 million users, WhatsApp is clearly one of the most popular messaging services in the world. Even Facebook was interested, as they purchased the app and service in 2014 for $19 billion dollars. That usage comes at a price, however, as it seems they are now killing a popular third-party app called WhatsApp+. People who are using this app are getting 24-hour bans from the service, along with being referred to a support document that states they do not support the WhatsApp+ and should move to the official one to be...

Just days after AT&T was approved to buy Iusacell, the 3rd-largest Mexican cell carrier for $2.5 billion dollars, they have announced a slight revamp to their international calling plans. Starting now, all AT&T customers can pay just $5 per month to make unlimited calls to Mexico, as part of their World Connect Value plans. AT&T’s Chief Marketing Officer David Christopher said: “”We’re always looking for opportunities to show our appreciation to our customers. Mexico is the most frequently dialed country...

The Nexus 6 has been on sale since November of last year, but it has still been hard to find and most units cost north of $649.99. However, Expansys has the 32 GB White model available for only $604.99, a savings of $45. Expansys is also offering free shipping for the Nexus 6, if you live in the US. While Motorola’s shipping may be faster, it isn’t free. You also only have to pay sales tax if you live in Illinois and Canada. Expanses doesn’t have the 64 GB variant or the Blue 32 GB version, but this is probably going...

Google Glass has been selling Glass to “Explorers” April of 2013, so it’s been almost two years since it has been available for any kind of public use. Google Glass has been involved in many things, from proposals to controversy and more. Now, as Google looks to go further with Glass, they’re putting the head of Nest, Tony Fadell, in charge of the product. The current leader of Glass, Ivy Ross, will not be leaving the project and will still be running day-to-day operations of the product. Tony Fadell will not...
