If you got some cash to spare for the Motorola Atrix HD Developer Edition, otherwise known as the Atrix HD variant that comes with an unlockable bootloader, you can now head to Moto’s website to pre-order the phone. The tinkerer-friendly phone will cost $459.99 with no contract, and will be shipped out on December 16.
We know how it goes: you’ve had your eye on the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 2, but just haven’t been able to justify the $299 it would cost you to get one. Well you’re in luck, because now you can grab the Note 2 for a cool $174.99.
As you slowly recover from your Thanksgiving slumber and prepare to leave behind those roasted turkey memories of yesterweek, it’s time to get back into the Android spirit and check out the many Cyber Monday deals out there that are worth spending your holiday money on.
Amazon Wireless has lowered the price of the AT&T Sony Xperia TL smartphone as low as you can go without being free. The handset is currently selling for just one penny on a two-year agreement.
In spite of several reports that said the contrary, you can, in fact, use LTE on the Google Nexus 4. We’ve shown you a video as a proof, and the thread on XDA-forums where the news first broke is full of people that managed to activate LTE on their Nexus 4.
Motorola is planning to start a soak test for the Atrix HD, one that may bring Jelly Bean early to a select few. The soak test reportedly will be pushed out in the coming days.
As you probably already know, the next few days are some of the busiest shopping days of the year. Luckily, if you’re looking to see what this year’s AT&T Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales are offering, you don’t even need to step into a store.
While some seem to have learned their lesson and are extending a helping hand to the growing independent developer community, others are still stubbornly locking bootloaders and going out of their way to stop us from poking our noses into our phones’ internals.
Smartphone pricing is generally higher directly with the carriers so the news of a discounted handset with Amazon Wireless is not really a surprise. Nontheless, being able to get the LG Optimus G (for Sprint or AT&T) for $99.99 is still a nice deal and one worthy of mentioning.
The U.S. mobile market is a big one, with 321.7 million subscribers as of second quarter of 2012. That’s a 101% mobile penetration, which means the number of lines equals the population. But while the nation is serviced by four major carriers today, T-Mobile thinks the market is not big enough for four big carriers to service.
