You didn't expect Ma Bell to open its first LTE markets without tossing in a few 4G friendly toys, did you? Of course not, we told you as much last week -- but today things get official: The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and HTC Vivid (formerly known as the Holiday) are ready to take Ma Bell's new LTE nodes for a spin.
Samsung has rolled out a new Galaxy smartphone that isn’t aimed at bringing the best specifications out there to the masses. This device is aimed at the entry-level buyer who is shopping for a 64-bit Android device on a budget. The smartphone is called the Galaxy Win 2. Samsung doesn't cram all the latest features into the budget device, but the smartphone is LTE capable.
After months of rumors, leaks, sightings, and early previews, the Samsung Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 are now official. The two mid-range Android phones have earlier passed by TENAA and some close up images were shown off a few days ago. We knew that the new Galaxy phones are arriving very soon and Samsung China has just listed the two on its website.
It’s been Samsung ’s way to present to the market a smaller, more compact, and budget-friendly version of their flagships when they come out. It’s a testament to the popularity of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini – the smaller version of the 2-year-old former flagship device – that it has apparently gotten a refresh this year, albeit quietly.
And so the Mobile World Congress 2015 comes to a close and now we're left to pick up the pieces of a whirlwind week. We've been bombarded by a lot of annoucements, new and old products, and promises, and now it's time to weed out the winners from the not so winners. Because everyone's a winner, right? But there are really quite a few that really piqued our interest and earned our applause.
As with the past HTC One models and perhaps as a tradition, the latest HTC One M9 flagship phone is getting the Goldgenie treatment. After the HTC One, One M8, and the One Mini getting luxury models, it's the HTC One M9's turn to have the gold, platinum, and rose gold versions from Goldgenie.
Samsung has finally announced the nitty gritty details, or at least some of it, when its prime smartphones launch in the US.

This all starts on March 27, when you can put down a pre-order for either, or maybe even both, of the two.
Best Buy is probably the best place to get the best deals of the best gadgets today. Okay, that may be an exaggeration of it becoming the best but the electronics retail giant is holding an exciting promo for fans of Samsung . Best Buy is having a Samsung 4-Day Sale which started yesterday March 25 and will end on Saturday, March 28.
One of the most frustrating things after an OEM has announced a brand new flagship or product is the lack of information as to its pricing and when it will be available. That's why we have to "rely" on rumors and leaks to at least give us an estimate of what we should be saving up for and how much time we have to gather our resources.
Not all people looking for new smartphones will want to buy high-end, high-spec devices. Whether it is for younger children or as a second smartphone, sometimes what you’re looking for are decent, wallet-friendly devices.
Motorola 's little budget powerhouse smartphone, the Moto E with 4G LTE , has arrived at the prepaid carrier Cricket Wireless. Customers will be able to grab it starting on March 13 for $129.99 USD, using it on the carrier's 4G LTE network sans contracts.
One of the problems with leaks is that there is really no telling which leak is the most accurate one until the fated day finally arrives. Take for example the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, whose leaks are starting to heat up as the August 13 announcement date fast approaches. Many aspects of the S Pen phablet remains in limbo, like the presence, or absence, of an auto eject mechanism for the stylus.
Are you already confused with so many Samsung Galaxy devices out in the market, and very little distinguishing one line from the other? Well, get ready to be even more confused as the Korean OEM is set to release a new series which will be called On or O (depending on the region where it will be released) and is closely similar to the entry-level Galaxy J devices.
Even though I’m the Gadgeteer, I don’t upgrade my personal phoneevery few months like some people might expect. I’m still using the LG G3 that I purchased last August. That means that in a few short weeks that I’ll have been using the same phone for an entire year.
There are too many Galaxy Tab models and we're having a hard time remembering all their names. I just know Samsung calls them Galaxy Tab. Add one letter and then the screen size. The company revealed the Galaxy Tab A in Russia and the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite 7 aimed budget shoppers last month.
The ultra-thin Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will soon be available in the United States. Samsung has just offered the product for up pre-order from some carriers and retailers in the country. Tablets will be available starting September 3, Thursday next week, all ready in its lightest and thinnest form.
It seems that the ball has truly started rolling for Samsung . Although the exact dates of the announcement is still all but a rumor, the manufacturer is dotting it's i's and crossing its t's in preparation for the imminent arrival of the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge Plus.
The cat is out of the bag: Samsung 's and HTC 's flagships are coming to town. But while they are set for an April launch, some might be able to get their hands on one, or at least on a pre-order form, earlier than others.
As people are gushing over the Samsung Galaxy S6 over at the premium side of the smartphone spectrum, there is no question that there are also a lot of options over at the budget tier. And Cricket Wireless just added another sub-$100 phone to its lineup to appeal to those who just want a simple phone and no bells and whistles whatsoever – this is the ZTE Fanfare.
