Three big names in the mobile industry are working together to bring the PadFone X mini in the United States. Intel and AT&T are helping Asus to release the new smartphone this coming October 24 in AT&T retail stores and some national retailers.
Just hours before the official announcement for the Nexus 9 and Nexus 6 on October 15, it looks like AT&T will be selling the Motorola Nexus 6 smartphone with 2-year contract. The Nexus 6 will be the first Nexus device offered by AT&T directly.
One of the constant concerns of those who travel abroad a lot is that when they come home, they are faced with humongous roaming charges. But carriers are now being very helpful (and careful) about that, offering packages to their customers that will help alleviate that bill shock. AT&T recently announced their Passport packages, giving users a one-time charge that will include unlimited text messages and WiFi in selected hotspots among other offerings.
Any parent who gives their kids a smartphone knows that can be a disaster if you don’t watch what kids do closely. Unexpectedly large bills from data overages or charges for apps and in-app purchases can really affect a budget. AT&T has launched a new app on Google Play to allow parents of kids using Android devices to put hard limits on what kids can do.
Another Motorola smartphone has dropped by the FCC but it might not be the device that many think or would like to think it is. Given the proximity of the dates for the next Nexus devices and next Android version announcement, it is almost too easy to presume that this would be the anticipated Motorola Nexus 6. However, it could also be something less spectacular but not entirely uninteresting to some users: a DROID Turbo/Quark not for Verzion but for its rivals AT&T and T-Mobile.
An insider breach recently shook AT&T. One of its employees reportedly accessed important information of a number of customers. The mobile carrier was humble enough to report the incident and warn customers about the data breach. Information obtained included diver’s license and Social Security numbers of unknown number of AT&T subscribers.
Even though Motorola has released a brand new 2014 version of the Moto G, carrier AT&T has decided to announce that they are carrying the previous (but apparently still great) version of the flagship phone. The Moto G LTE version is now available for both no contract and contract subscribers. It is Motorola's best-selling budget phone after all, so it's not really that much of a surprise (well, except that we expected the newer version right?)
To start your Monday, here’s some good news for AT&T subscribers: your trusted mobile carrier is offering new Mobile Share Values. AT&T’s latest deal allows you to get double the amount of data on 15GB to 50GB plans. The offer is good for both old and new customers signing-up before October 31.
A few days ago, we learned that AT&T would be selling the Samsung Galaxy Alpha smartphone, fast forward a few days and the smartphone is now live on the AT&T website. All three white, gold and black version of the smartphone are on the site along with the full specifications for the device. The Galaxy Alpha is priced at $199.99 with 2-year contract, or a $612.99 without service contract.
The latest Samsung wearable will be available in the U.S. this fall but AT&T will add the Samsung Gear S to its current lineup ahead of other carriers. The new smartwatch from Samsung will be ready by September 26, Friday, courtesy of AT&T. The wearable runs its own Tizen wearable OS and comes complete with a curved display, voice support, messaging, and data connectivity.
