  I’ve never been one for all those 10-inch Android tablets running around these days. They don’t fit well into my skinny jeans. But this 7-inch Iconia A100 from Acer, I could definitely see myself wearing. We’ve known about this device for awhile now but a solid release date or pricing was never given.

27db9__d600_400x400

  We broke this story not too long ago when a tipster sent us some pictures of his SPH-D600 on Sprint. We didn’t have an actual name to go on but it looks like that has changed with Samsung’s newest unveiling of the Conquer 4G for Sprint.

The phone features a smaller 3.5-inch HVGA display, 3.2MP rear facing camera with a 1.3MP … [Read more...]



Rogers lowers pricing for the LG Optimus Pad

c6584__lg_optimus_pad

  We're guessing someone at Rogers corporate offices woke up from their money-filled dreams and realized that if you want to sell tablets, they need to be somewhat reasonably priced if you're also going to be taking on a new 3-year contract as well as handing over $ 300 or more in cold, hard cash. With this realization came a price drop for the LG Optimus Pad which was previously set at $ 449 and is now sitting at $ 254 with a 3-year contract while the outright cost, no-contract … [Read more...]

thumb_550_T-Mobile_G2X

  Our good friend David over at TMONews.com received an interesting screenshot today. It seems that T-Mobile is now raising the price of the G2x after they took it off the shelf due to inventory issues.     This could mean 1 of 2 things: 1. They are compensating for the price it is costing them to repair all the exchanged devices. 2. They are bringing in a new batch with Gingerbread, thus rolling out a Gingerbread Update. Now this is all pure speculation of … [Read more...]
