Verizon Sony Xperia Z2 evidence appears again

sony_verizon_xperia_z2

The Verizon Sony Xperia Z2 has been pretty evasive since we first heard rumors of its existence back in March. Today however, some more evidence of the device was leaked.

The leak shows an image of the device showing off its IP58 certification. We can just make out the Verizon logo on the back of the device, suggesting that it will in fact be released to Verizon. Despite this, officially the device will not be available to any of the big 4 major carriers, and will only be available unlocked via the Sony store, but that could change.

Verizon said to be getting the HTC Desire 610

Life should not be all about flagship smartphones with cutting edge specifications. So it is always nice to see when a carrier opts to sell mid-range devices. They need some love too, after all. It looks like HTC and Verizon will be teaming up to bring the Desire 610 to Big Red customers.

On Twitter, @evleaks said that the handset would be heading to Verizon. And back in March, we heard that it would also be available through AT&T as well. Perhaps this is a sign other carriers like Sprint or T-Mobile will carry the Desire 610.

T-Mobile ‘Get out of Jail Free Card’ pays contract cutters up to $650 per line

T-Mobile will reimburse entire amount of customers’ early termination fees when they switch from AT&T, Sprint or Verizon

uncarrier-4T-Mobile just took the wrapper off its latest Uncarrier initiative, introducing us to its boldest moves yet. As previously rumored, the wireless provider will pay off early termination fees for anyone leaving their current provider. Should you leave either Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint then you could earn yourself up to $650 for jumping early. Called the ‘Get Out of Jail Free Card’ it’s a combination of eligible phone trade-ins and ETF credits.

Up to a $300 trade-in credit comes from each eligible device and up to $350 more comes once the customer sends their final bill (ETF fees). This is per line! We cannot help but imagine this could lead to even more growth for T-Mobile. What’s more, it could come at the expense of other carriers. As to when this all takes effect, customers can head to a T-Mobile store tomorrow.

Carriers like to make you think you’re just signing up for two years with their family plans, but with staggered expiration dates and early termination fees, they’re really locking you in forever,” said Mike Sievert, chief marketing officer for T-Mobile. “Now, families are free to switch without worrying about early termination fees. And by switching to T-Mobile, a family of four can save $1,880 over two years compared to an AT&T shared family plan.”

Note that customers must trade-in their old phone, purchase a new T-Mobile phone and port their phone number to T-Mobile to qualify.

Verizon Changelog for HTC One Android 4.3 Update Surfaces

VerizonHTCOne43

With the Android 4.3 update for the Verizon HTC One finally upon us, it was only a matter of time before we’d see a changelog surface somewhere. Surface it has, as Big Red updated their web site with a support PDF for the newly approved update.

The update has a finalized build of 2.10.605.1. As far as the update is concerned there isn’t much to it. Besides the improvements that Android 4.3 brought to the table, there isn’t much to it in terms of new or updated software. Verizon has added yet another bloatware app. One owners will be able to add their own tracks to Highlights videos.

Besides that, we have bug fixes that include a fix for charging with a Mophie Juicepack, an option for playing purchased ringtones and a fix to those who have faint ringing noises in their ear pieces.

With everything being all official we could very well see the update start rolling out today and a bigger roll out happening as the week progresses. While some of us may have been too tired of waiting (myself included) and went the ROM route, this should make stock Sense users happy.

Let us know if you’re seeing it come across your One! Enjoy!

Sundar Pichai: The Nexus 5 will not be on Verizon

Verizon customers must be devastated after hearing this, but its true. Google’s Senior VP of Android Sundar Pichai said that Verizon wouldn’t be getting the Nexus 5 – the new Android flagship device. It seems the cold war between Google and Verizon is still on, as we didn’t see the Nexus 4 on Verizon and also Big Red said they will launch Nexus 7 – but no one ever heard anything about it again. Although it seems Google and Verizon are trying to sort it out – because they both know that they have to co-exist.

Verizon is the biggest US carrier, and Google on other hand, is one of the strongest tech giants in the world. Mr. Pichai said that Google is working with Verizon on a set of projects for 2014. He further said:

” Whether Verizon’s collaboration with Google is a modified version of the Nexus 5, a new tablet, or something else entirely remains to be seen — but we’ll have to wait until next year to find out.”

I smell a modified Nexus 5, do you? Anyway, let’s wait and hopefully we might see something. So Verizon users, are you planning to grab the Nexus 5 from T-Mobile or Sprint or you want to wait?
