Bell Mobility is sticking to its scheduled release of August 2 for the Motorola Razr V. The mid-ranged Razr phone and all of its Kevlar fiber glory is now on sale for $29.95 with a three-year contract – a minimum $50 value for the voice and data plan is required. Otherwise, you can snag the Razr V off-contract for $399.95.
Except for the rather chubbier build, there’s no questioning the resemblance between the Razr V and the original Razr when it comes to design and specs. At only 8.35mm thick, it’s still a remarkably slim and slender phone, mind you. Some also may prefer the on-screen buttons on the Razr V than the capacitive buttons of the [...]
It’s only been a few weeks since Motorola officially took the wraps off the new Atrix HD LTE, but it seems that Google’s subsidiary has some big plans with the super-phone. In US, AT&T has for now been granted the “honor” to be the only supplier of the 4.5-incher, while in Canada the Atrix could come to two carriers.
We reported on the rumors that Bell could be the first carrier up north to get the phone just over a week ago, and now it seems that Virgin Mobile is ready to follow suite. The new rumor comes from the same source as the old one, Mobile Syrup, and, while not yet officially confirmed, it’s very trustworthy.
Again, a leaked internal screenshot [...]
You may know Kyocera for its water-resistant smartphone offering, the Kyocera Hydro. But there’s one more Android trick up the Japanese manufacturer’s sleeve. After it was first showcased at CTIA 2012 back in May – the Kyocera Rise is on its way to two wireless carriers in the US.
EVleaks has shared new pictures of the Kyocera Rise in the wild, bringing along with it fresh information of where the phone will be heading to. Looking at the specs and the mentioned SprintZone app in the phone’s home screen, it’s safe to say that the slider will be offered by Sprint. But that’s not all, because the phone apparently will be [...]
Almost two months after reporting on a rumor that HTC’s One V is set to hit several US carriers this summer, the rumor has finally proven true and the mid-range phone is available for sale stateside.
The first carrier to offer the most modest phone in the HTC One trio is Virgin Mobile, who’s practically begging you to get the handheld off their hands with one heck of a deal. $199.99 is Virgin’s price for the One V, and the best part of the deal is that you won’t be asked to sign a carrier agreement of any sorts.
Taking low-end or mid-range devices that are hard to find at major carriers and offering them for low prices without contracts has been Virgin’s MO for [...]
Something historic happened in the first quarter of 2012. For the first time ever, the major carriers in the US have registered a combined decline in the number of postpaid (contract) subscribers. The total number of subscriptions of the seven biggest telcos in the United States has declined with 52,000.
Sure, that’s not a dramatic fall by any means, considering that AT&T, Verizon, and the other carriers have hundreds of millions of subscribers. But this first drop ever might be a sign that people are getting tired of paying hundreds of dollars every month, for a service that they can get for half or less, simply by sacrificing a little [...]
Sprint’s eco-friendly entry-level LG Optimus Elite might not have been on top of many wish lists when it started selling a few weeks back, but since Virgin Mobile started offering the phone, things seem to have changed a bit.
The Elite’s initial stocks on Virgin were sold out in the preorder phase, and now you have two more reasons to want the device. Worry not, though, because the carrier’s website appears to have enough phones this time around to satisfy demand!
The two deals offered by LG, Virgin, and Google will fill your virtual pockets with no less than $60, which means that you will actually pay only 90 bucks for the SIM-free Optimus Elite.
