Verizon changes Early Termination Fee Policy

Got a Verizon phone and you want to terminate your contract? You may have to spend more if you wish to cancel phone service in the first eight months of your contract. The network recently changed a policy on customer agreement related to Early Termination Fee (ETF).

Verizon outs new Ellipsis 8 tablet to add to consumer options

As Verizon would say it, “more tablets mean more options” for their US consumers. And so they drop a new tablet called the Verizon Ellipsis 8, which provides Verizon customers with a sort of in-between-er – should they wish to forego the Apple iPads or the Samsung Galaxy Tabs. And with very capable specs, the Ellipsis 8 provides a viable option for consumers looking to save a few bucks.

DROID Turbo review: The do-it-all Android phone

Just like 2013, late 2014 brought us a Moto X from Motorola, but also a new DROID lineup. The Verizon-only handset is — like the Moto X refresh — a linear upgrade, void of much to “new” really look at. Still, and again as we saw with the other phone we keep mentioning here, the DROID Turbo isn’t just iterative. As the pound-for-pound champion in the DROID lineup, the Turbo is meant as the flagship Verizon handset. Is it worth of that title, though? We find out.

Verizon and AT&T to offer VoLTE interoperability by 2015

Voice over LTE (VoLTE) technology is certainly an intriguing proposition and many are predicting it will be the main way to digitally communicate in a few years time. But one probable problem that users will encounter is that you are still limited to making voice and HD video calls within your network only. That is about to change as two of the US' biggest carriers, AT&T and Verizon announced that they will be offering VoLTE interoperability by 2015, a move that might just get people (well, at least subscribers to the two networks) on board with this all-IP technology.

AT&T, Verizon offer more data in plan promos

Two of the United States’ biggest mobile carriers are stepping up and giving users more data to use on their mobile devices as more and more people get access to LTE connectivity. LTE – popularly known as 4G connectivity (although if we’re being technical, it’s not really 4G, but we’re nitpicking) – is now becoming more and more common in more areas in the US, and it seems a good move for AT&T and Verizon to offer more data in their plans for consumers.

This is the Verizon DROID Turbo, coming 30 October

Verizon and Motorola have finally unveiled the DROID Turbo and it is everything that we have expected it to be, which is both good and bad. Good, because it matches up to the high expectations set up by leaks and rumors. Bad, because there are no pleasant surprises hiding in corners. Needless to say, the DROID Turbo has shaped up to be quite the Android smartphone, to the point that Verizon customers might be tempted to opt for this instead of Motorola's own flagship, the Moto X.

DROID Turbo gets leaked again, this time in retail packaging

There are heavy indications that the DROID Turbo – Motorola’s new DROID phone for Verizon – will be one heck of a smartphone, if the leaked and rumored specs are anything to go by. And with Motorola on a roll this half of 2014 – first with the new Moto X, then coming out with Google’s Nexus 6 – it looks like the outfit is going to make it to three flagship level phones this year.
