The Next Galaxy is almost here, and now we have a teaser video to prove it. Google and Mattel are also breaking boundaries with a brand new View-Master. All while AT&T offers a new tiered data plan.
We are all awaiting the upcoming Samsung Unpacked event at Mobile World Congress. Rumors say we will see multiple versions of the Galaxy S6, but that is nto what we are talking about today (at least not yet). Samsung has put together a neat teaser video for us to drool over.
The short clip focuses on camera capabilities, a feature Samsung is known to hype up with every flagship launch. It doesn’t tell us much, but it’s a nice little something to hold us until the March announcement.
Opinion: Will the Galaxy S6 camera blow us away? We will have to see. I am more interested to see what else Sammy is bringing to the table, though.

You guys remember the View-Master toys we had as kids, right? Yes, those ones that had circular film disk-like things. You could switch through multiple images and we thought it was a huge deal. Well, the new generations are really in for a treat with what Google and Mattel have announced.
Enter the new View-Master, a headset that will really let your kids look at the world through the power of VR (virtual reality). It’s pretty much a nice looking Google Cardboard headset, really. You put your smartphone inside and it does all the work.
What makes the experience unique is the little film disks, which are no longer film. Instead, they work as the object that connects you to the virtual experience. Check out the video below to understand exactly how it works.
Opinion: View-Master experience aside, I think this is actually a great VR headset. It works with all Google Cardboard software, so you are not really limited to their Mattel’s disks. Best part is that it will be sold for only $14.99!
AT&T has a pretty good selection of data plans, but there’s also a lot of gaps in which the available options are too much or too little. One of them is the gap between the 6 GB and 10 GB tiers, but AT&T has just introduced a new plan for those who can’t find their sweet spot between these two.
The new plan costs $75 and comes with 7 GB for your browsing pleasure. You also get your rollover data, so it doesn’t batter if you do happen to have some extra data left over.
Opinion: More options is always better. Is anyone here going to sign up for the 7 GB plan?
