LG is finally getting ready to launch the G Watch R while AT&T is releasing an older device. It seems Verizon is the only one with bad news today!
Not liking the current Android Wear devices? A new one is on its way and it’s coming soon. At least that is what the latest Korean news tell us.
The LG G Watch R is launching in South Kore on October 14th, and rumors say it could be available online as soon as tomorrow. We don’t know much else but we did get a price, which is set at KRW 352,000 (about $332 USD).
Opinion: That price stands very close to the Moto 360 (in Korea), which makes sense. The LG G Watch R and Moto 360 are the only Android Wear smartwatches with circular displays, a very popular characteristic among fans. Which one will take your money? I am betting on the LG G Watch R.
Looking to get an affordable device to use with your AT&T service? Motorola has been offering the best affordable devices for a while, and now AT&T is offering one of them – the Moto G with LTE (yes, this is the first-generation Moto G).
This means you can take full advantage of AT&T 4G LTE speeds (where available) and the device is priced a little cheaper through the carrier. AT&T is letting you take this phone home with a $180 off-contract price (about $40 cheaper than usual).
Of course, you can also get it for $79.99 on a 2-year contract or in monthly payments via AT&T Next. It will be available in stores and online on October 10th, which is only a few days away.
Opinion: I have used the first-generation Moto G and must say I love the device for the price. I think AT&T may be a little late to the game here, though. Regardless, it’s a great affordable phone.
Redbox may have control over the streets, but the online streaming market hasn’t been very kind to them. This is why Verizon’s Redbox Instan streaming service will be shutting down on October 7th at 11:59 PM.
At least that is what Redbox’s FAQ page says. This comes after three months since signups were disabled due to security problems. Could these issues be related? We are not sure, but the decision seems to be put in stone by now.
Those who have a subscription will get a refund for the month of October. More details on that are said to come via email soon.
Opinion: It’s hard for Redbox to beat the streaming giants at this point. I could see them succeeding if they could match their online pricing with their DVD rental prices.
