Best Buy is offering a $50 discount on the iPhone 5 and 4S. The smartphones are available for all major carriers in the US that carry them – Verizon Wireless, AT&T and Sprint.

You could arrange a device from Verizon and Sprint to be shipped to your door but AT&T customers can only get the device from a brick and mortar store.

The iPhone 5 will usually set you back $199.99 for a 16 gig version, $299.99 for a 32 GB model and $399.99 for a 64 GB one. Now the prices are $149.99, $249.99 and $349.99 respectively.

The offer also applies for the iPhone 4S, which now starts at $49.99 instead of $99.99. There’s no information how long the deal will last but you probably shouldn’t wait too long.

HTC officially confirmed the Windows Phone 8S won’t be coming to the United States. HTC says its focus will go entirely on the 8X. Here comes the official statement:

“The Windows Phone 8X by HTC is our signature Windows Phone available at AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless in the U.S. With our focus on the Windows Phone 8X by HTC, the Windows Phone 8S is not currently planned for distribution in the U.S. market.

The device will probably still find its way to the US shores through various retailers and it will be available free of contract. However, with no official import its pricing might turn out to be pretty steep so there will be little point in getting it.

In other news, the Verizon’s HTC Windows Phone 8X sells unlocked and it’s compatible with whatever microSIM you may have from carriers around the globe. It seems this might be a new Verizon policy since other top-notch phones from their catalog also come unlocked – notably the iPhone 5 and DROID DNA.

Verizon raised a few eyebrows when it put its logo on the Home button of the Samsung Galaxy Note II, but if you can live with that, you should know that the phablet goes on sale tomorrow, November 29.

The price is the same as it was during pre-orders – $300 if you sign a 2-year contract, or $700 if you prefer to go off-contract. The Note II for Verizon is available in Marble White and Titanium Gray.

By the way, if you’ve already pre-ordered Samsung’s fast-selling phablet, you should have a shipping confirmation email in your inbox.

Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Note II is the same 5.5″ Super AMOLED-packing, Jelly Bean-running, Exynos-powered device as the international version, but also gets support for Verizon’s CDMA and 4G LTE networks.


On the lookout for a new Android tablet to add to your collection? If you are, you might be pleased to know that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 launched at Verizon today, complete with 4G LTEcapabilities. 4G LTE is going to be the major selling point of the Verizon Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, since everything else about the slate will be mostly the same.

Of course, it will also come with a few Verizon apps pre-installed, but other than those and 4G LTE capabilities, you’re getting the same tablet we reviewed earlier this year. That means you get a 1280×800 10.1-inch screen, a dual-core TI OMAP 4 processor clocked at 1.0GHz, 1GB of RAM, and Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. You’ve also got 16GB of internal storage at your disposal, but that can be expanded through the use of the microSD slot the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 comes equipped with.

So no, you’re not getting the most powerful tablet in the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, but it should still be able to get the job done. That being said, don’t expect it to be all that cheap – Verizon is offering it at $499. That price, when coupled with the less-than-stellar hardware, might prove to be a deterrent for some folks, but we have a feeling that there are some out there who have had their eye on a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 nonetheless.

You can also opt to sign up for Verizon’s Share Everything plan when you buy a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, and you’ll need to sign up for some kind of data plan if you want to take advantage of that 4G LTE functionality. Verizon opened up pre-orders for the device today, and said that it will begin shipping the devices on November 26 (next Monday). Are you planning to pick up a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 from Verizon?
