Samsung Galaxy S5

Carriers ignore release date, sell Galaxy S5 in South Korea

A few days ago, we reported on several South Korean carriers being forced into a blackout period for new device sales. Three carriers were found to be willfully breaking a rule on subsidies, wherein a carrier can’t subsidize a device more than $250. Rather than issue a fine, regulators stopped them from selling phones instead — with the Galaxy S5 being launched in the middle of their blackout. It didn’t work.

HTC One (M8) vs. Samsung Galaxy S5: comparing the specs

The HTC and Samsung flagship devices have both been unveiled. Naturally, we are talking about the One (M8) and the Galaxy S5. The former was detailed earlier this morning, and we saw details of the latter earlier in the month, during Mobile World Congress.

South Korean carriers face bans when Galaxy S5 launches April 11

An odd bit of news has come out of South Korea today, where it seems some major carriers won’t be able to take advantage of selling the Samsung Galaxy S5 on launch. The Government has wrist-slapped SK Telecom, LG U+, and Korea Telecom, banning them for several weeks during and around the launch of the device. Oddly enough, banning them may prevent a repeat of their original offense.

T-Mobile Galaxy S5 pre-orders arriving with official unboxing video

Some of the US carriers may have begun accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy S5 last week, however T-Mobile choose to hold things back till today, March 24th. The good news though, T-Mobile has opened those pre-orders both in-store and online and the handset can be grabbed for $0 down. The Galaxy S5 will not be arriving until April 11th, however T-Mobile is pushing for pre-orders by the end of the month.
