Long rumored and announced devices are finally coming to light as Amazon, Motorola and Huawei take the main stage tonight. Which manufacturer are you rooting for?
The “Amazon Phone” has been about the longest running rumor in the industry. We have literally been hearing about it for years. Generations of Kindle Fire tablets have come and gone, but so far this Amazon Phone has been staying very well hidden. Could we be seeing it soon?
Amazon has been sending invites for a Seattle event, in which it is believed this legendary device could finally be coming to life! A recent video has teased what seems like a smartphone with some sort of 3D experience, but so far we don’t know much. We will have to wait until next week to learn more.
Opinion: I can’t imagine how this Amazon smartphone could be different, but I do know they will have some advantages over other manufacturers. While it may be limited to Amazon’s services, chances are this phone will come with a very enticing price tag!
While the Moto G 4G LTE became available for pre-order shortly after its announcement, today is the first day it’s in stock and ready for shipping. You can now purchase the device for $219 straight from Motorola’s website.
This price is a bit higher than the original Moto G’s, but we must realize things have changed. The Moto G 4G LTE does come with LTE antennas (duh). Even though it is limited to 8 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot with support for cards up to 32 GB was added.
Opinion: These additions may make the phone very worth it for many of you. After all, the Moto G was already a great device for the price. All Motorola did was make it a little better.
Huawei launched its USA online store last week, blasting doors and entering the American market with full force. Their first offering is the Huawei Ascend Mate2 for $299, but we know some of you prefer purchasing devices from sites you already trust.
One of the most trusted retailers is Amazon.com, and now they are also offering the Huawei Ascend Mate2 for just $299. It comes with a 6.1-inch 720p screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of ROM and 13MP/5MP cameras, so it’s not a bad contender.
Opinion: I would personally feel safer with Amazon shipping my smartphones. Not to mention, Amazon offers Prime shipping with this order, so Prime subscribers can get free 2-day shipping!
