Nexus 6 fans have something to look forward to this week. Meanwhile, Microsoft is introducing its first Lumia device and a very sweet bundle.
The Nexus 6 may be a bit more pricey than other Nexus devices, but that is not taking away from the hype its launch entails. We know many of you are going to be signing up for it, and this week the device is coming to a couple US carriers.
AT&T has just announced their Nexus 6 pre-orders are to start on November 12th, which is tomorrow. It will be offered for $249 on a 2-year contract, $682.99 off-contract, or you can get it on payments through AT&T NEXT.
Want to get the device in-store, instead? You can go grab it from Sprint stores starting this Friday, November 14th. The Now Network will price it at $29 a month in a 24-month plan. That is just short of $700.
Opinion: I will continue waiting for my Verizon version, but there is no doubt this is a great offer for AT&T and Sprint users. That is, if you are a happen to be a fan of the Nexus 6. It’s a pricey phone, but you do get what you pay for and then some.
Right in time for its expected announcement, the Microsoft Lumia 535 becomes the first Lumia device to come without the Nokia branding. We didn’t know what to expect of it until now, and let us tell you… it’s one hell of a deal!
Let’s kickstart this by mentioning the phone will only cost 110 Euros, which equals to about right under $140 USD. This super accessible price gets you a 5-inch 960x540p display, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot supporting cards of up to 128 GB and 5 MP cameras (both).
Opinion: This fun and colorful device will be yet another great offer brought by the Lumia brand. Microsoft is not starting off bad here! It will be available in select markets in November, and the only downside I see is that it doesn’t support 4G. Who is signing up?
Microsoft is offering an unbeatable offer for those who are well-invested in their products and services. The Microsoft “Play & Work Bundle” offers you a series of subscription services many of us depend on, all for a price that grants over a 50% discount.
The bundle comes with a year subscription to Office 365 Home, Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Music Pass and Skype Unlimited World. It’s priced at $199, whereas it would cost you about $450 to get all of these separately. You do have to go to a Microsoft Store in the USA to sign up for this deal, though. And it is only available until January 4th.
Opinion: I can’t say I use these services (or similar ones) enough to pay $199 for them, but many of you do! You can go to Microsoft’s website to find out which stores offer this bundle.
