Google Glass. From Motorola taking control of the manufacturing process, all the way to the exciting glasses hitting the streets in early 2014 for just $299. Well, today we're getting a little response to those rumors, but at the same time we aren't getting new details.
Google Glass we have some potentially excellent news for you this week. A rather interesting and brief rumor was tossed around on Google+ yesterday by none other than Robert Scoble, who many probably know for taking the shower picture with Google Glass. According to Scoble, Google will be renting space from Best Buy for Google Glass.
Chromecast media streaming dongle has been something many are looking to get their hands on, and now one more option is available again. We've seen the Chromecast go in and out of stock from Best Buy, Google's Play Store, and Amazon, and now it looks like Google finally has quite a bit more for everyone.
Verizon, it's almost too easy to overlook other models in its catalog. So it is quite a bit of a surprise to learn that Verizon's other Motorola smartphone, the DROID ULTRA, has sold out completely on Best Buy just a day after its release.
Nexus 7 has already begun arriving with one retailer. That retailer is Best Buy and the tablet is available for online purchase as of this morning. Gone is the pre-order button and in the place is a simple add-to-cart button.
Nexus 7 2 would be available beginning on July 31st. While we have yet to learn the official release date from Google, it looks like this week has begun with another leak from yet another retail store. This latest is coming from Best Buy and has the tablet coming available a day earlier than with Staples.
Pebble smartwatch coming to Best Buy and it looks like they have since been confirmed. We have yet to see any official announcement from either Best Buy or Pebble, however a coming soon style listing has recently appeared on the retailers website.
Best Buy is planning a weekend sale that will bring some discounts on select Android smartphones. There are a few handsets that will be available during this promotion and they look to be spread between two carriers -- AT&T and Verizon Wireless. Before anyone gets excited thinking there will be deep discounts on handsets such as the GALAXY S 4 or HTC One, we will offer the warning up front as these are older model handsets.
T-Mobile has the HTC One available, however those making a purchase direct from the carrier will be doing so under the new UNcarrier approach. Basically, that is to say you will be getting the One with an initial downpayment and 24 additional monthly payments. The UNcarrier set up includes the newer Simple Choice Plans, however we suspect some may still prefer the Classic plans.
