LG and T-Mobile are willing to let users test their products and services before giving them a go. Meanwhile, Pebble is teasing the Time watch as it goes into mass production.
LG’s G4 Trial Program had all geeks going nuts with the opportunity to get a free device, but we hadn’t heard much about the program until today. LG has announced the US LG G4 Trial Program is son to take off and you can be a part of it.
You can’t sign up just yet, but you can sign up to sign up. Confusing? It may sound a bit odd, but you just have to enter your information in order to get details down the road. LG will make sure we all know how to enroll, in a future email.
Opinion: I am signing up…. You know, just in case. I do love what LG is doing here. Why not show the world how great a new smartphone is by actually sending it out into the wild?
Here at Mobile Geeks we are super stoked about the Pebble Time’s upcoming launch. The new smart watch has just hit mass production and the company is getting ready to bring the device to market. Interested to learn what the device can actually do? Don’t worry, Pebble is being very clear about it in a new update.
On day one of the product launch you will see a new timeline interface, expanded app storage, a new Sports app, redesigned system apps in color and voice replies. More features will come in future updates, though, including voice response to Gmail notifications on iOS, a Voice notes app, a Stocks app, a weather watchface and album art view for the Music app.
Opinion: Shipping is expected to begin in the second half of May, so we will start seeing these bad boys around the streets very soon. Did you sign up for a Pebble Time? You are in for some serious treats!
T-Mobile is no stranger to competition. In fact, they are pretty fierce when it comes to facing other carriers, and today they are going for the top dog – Verizon. The Uncarrier is offering Verizon users a free 14-day trial of their services, along with a phone loaner.
Users just have to port their number. If they decide to tay, T-Mobile will pay your ETFs and outstanding device payments (you have to turn in your Verizon phone at this point). If not, T-Mobile will refund whatever you paid during this trial and you can go right back to Verizon.
Opinion: I have tried all major carriers and I have to say it’s very hard to leave Verizon. Their network is really incomparable. I will say T-Mobile is definitely really good when compared to AT&T, and definitely when compared to Sprint.
