The wearables market is growing rapidly with new products seemingly launching all the time. The next new smartwatch product to land at Verizon will be the SmartWatch 3 from Sony, and the device is set to land at the carrier this month.
Today, Sony has offically unveiled their Xperia Z3 smartphone to the world. The natural iteration in their flagship lineup, the Xperia Z3 has at least one unique thing going for it. Sony will be bringing their handset to T-Mobile, which is something they’ve been doing for some time. We’re used to that, but with the Xperia Z3, Sony has figured out carriers a bit better, and will truck a variant over to Verizon, too. That Verizon model will also have one unique feature the other won’t.
We've heard and seen leaks about Motorola's new DROID device heading for Verizon and so far it has painted a rather surprising picture of a smartphone that could very well have been Motorola's flagship. Now a leaked manual supposedly for the Verizon DROID Turbo has popped up that seemingly confirms that more than premium image of the device. But despite being a carrier-exclusive (at least as far as we know), it seems that the DROID Turbo still offers that same "vanilla" Android experience as the Moto X.
Verizon will be offering to its subscribers HTC's entry level device, the Desire 612. The name might sound familiar, as it is just a slightly redesigned version of the HTC Desire 610, as per request of the US carrier from the Taiwanese OEM. But while the smartphone is being positioned as a mid-level device, its features are not that bad and may serve you as a value for money device.
You've probably heard of Redbox Instant, the video streaming service from DVD-rental chain Redbox and Verizon right? No? Well, you're not alone. Apparently, not a lot of people heard of it too or were interested in getting the service, hence the announcement that it will be shutting down for good by October 7, just barely a year and a half old.
Verizon "changed their mind" when it comes to their planned data throttling for unlimited data users, but this may not be out of the goodness of their hearts. The FCC exerted pressure on the carrier to reverse their decision, and it seems like this, together with much public criticism, actually worked as they revealed they decided to "not move forward" with implementing their plan. Instead, they have removed unlimited data plans and just doubled the data for shared users in their MORE Everything plans.
One of those things we love about smartphone manufacturers is when they need their egos stroked (or destroyed) in wanting to see how their new unlaunched, super-secret phones stack up against others – hence the need to use benchmarking software. It practically gives us a full look into the innards of their new phones, like this new Motorola DROID Turbo, which recently made an appearance at GFX Bench.
A new LG smartwatch has crossed the FCC to get the certifications it needs to come to market. This version of the G Watch is called the LG-VC100 and is destined for Verizon. Interestingly, this smartwatch will have its own SIM card.
The new Moto X – the spanking new flagship smartphone from Motorola – was one of the most leaked, most hyped devices in the build up to the recent IFA 2014 in Berlin. The very stylish phone is now making its way to Verizon customers, with the mobile carrier saying that the device – along with its familiar customizer the Moto Maker – will be available starting September 26.
The new Moto X may have just gone live, but Verizon subscribers might soon have a few more options to choose from, or to confuse them a wee bit. Leaked photos and specs hint at the coming of another DROID for Verizon, dubbed the DROID Turbo, with a curious mix of specs. Plus another part of the Moto S leaks out, this time the back cover instead of the front.
