LG won’t be settling with the G4. Meanwhile, AT&T and Spotify are making some changes to their services. Want to learn more? Keep reading!
Most manufacturers conform with a single major release per year, but not LG. Oh no. LG is going for a second round this year. Or at least this is what the Korean manufacturer told the guys at Focus Taiwan.
The plan is to boost sales in their home country. Said phone is expected to launch during the second half of 2015.
Opinion: We have no idea what kind of phone this would be, but we can assume it could be from the G Pro series. I believe this dual-flagship strategy makes total sense. After all, there is no such thing as one device to rule them all. More options is always better.
It seems like it was just some days ago when all carriers did everything in their power to make you sign a contract. Fast-forward to 2015 and everyone seems to be trying to move away from that strategy! Go figure.
Anyways, it seems AT&T is making some major changes to their business strategy starting June 1st. While they won’t be getting rid of contracts (as previously rumored), internal sources say AT&T will make it a bit harder for users to get on a contract.
The idea would be to promote their AT&T NEXT program, but those who want to sign a 2-year contract instead will have to have their devices ordered. That’s right, you won’t be able to walk into a store and walk out with a phone on a contract.
Opinion: Very weird, right? I mean, the phones are there, just give me the damn thing! What’s the point of all this beating around the bush. Either keep your contracts or dump them. Don’t just keep us in this smartphone purgatory.
Are you a Spotify fan? I happen to use it every single day, so I am excited to see the streaming service is evolving into a very powerful source of entertainment. The company is adding news, video and podcast support.
There will be fun clips from many sources, including original content, as well as stuff from ABC, Adult Swim, Comedy Central, TED and much more. Of course, you will also be able to subscribe to all your favorite podcasts.
Spotify is also introducing a very interesting running service. Your phone will pretty much be able to track your running tempo. Then the music will be chosen and played to follow your pase. They call it Spotify Running. Pretty cool, right?
These features start rolling out today to iPhone users. Make sure you catch your update!
Opinion: Spotify has been so centered around music that I don’t know how well this will work. I mean, will you stop using YouTube? I can understand how podcast support is good, though. That’s actually quite convenient.
