The device will be available off-contract for $549.99 or with Verizon Edge for $22.91 per month for 24 months. Big Red hasn’t given us the details on two-year contract pricing, but we’d imagine it will land on the carrier for around $199.99.

Additionally, the brand new LG G Pad X8.3 will also be available in-store starting May 28th. The new tablet will be available for $299.99 off-contract or for $12.49 per month for 24 months on Verizon Edge. Purchasing the tablet with a two-year contract will cost $129.99. Specs for the G Pad X8.3 aren’t extremely impressive, though they’ll certainly suffice for many users out there. The tablet has an 8.3-inch Full HD IPS LCD display, a 1.5GHz octa-core processor, an 8MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 16GB of internal storage and microSD expansion up to 128GB. It also has a 4800mAh battery and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop.

For a limited time, if you purchase an LG G4, you’ll be able to score the G Pad X8.3 for just $49.99 on-contract ($129.99 value). LG’s free battery and memory card promotion is also applied here, so be sure to take advantage of that deal if you’re interested in buying one of these devices.

LG’s G4 arrives at T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon and US Cellular next week


Have you been eyeing LG’s latest flagship handset since it was announced last month? Well, it’s set to arrive in the US next week. T-Mobile began selling the G4 online today, for $0 down and $25/month for two years or $599.76 if you’re looking to part with a lump sum. The pink-hued carrier is looking to lure early adopters with an extra that’ll make good use of that microSD card slot. If you opt in “while supplies last,” you can expect a free 128GB card for free. And T-Mobile’s the spot to grab that dapper brown leather rear cover. The LG G4 won’t go on sale in stores until June 3rd, so nabbing one now means yours will ship before the phone hits retail. Not a fan of T-Mobile? Fret not.

Sprint announced last week that it would start selling the G4 on June 5th Metallic Gray and Leather Black. The carrier also has the same deal as T-Mobile ($0 down, $25/month for 24 months), on top of the two-year contract price of $200. And yes, you can still forgo the commitment for $600. Verizon’s version of G4 will be available June 4th, but it’s taking pre-orders starting tomorrow. Spacing out the payments over 24 months will set you back $22.91/month with Big Red and buying the handset outright with no contract costs $550. Opting to go with Verizon still gets you the phone in either Metallic Gray or Leather Black and there’s also a number of bundles that tack on an LG tablet or the LG Watch Urbane for some extra dough.

If you still aren’t happy with those options, US Cellular will have the G4 up for grabs on June 4th. Unfortunately, there’s no word on when the handset will be available from AT&T just yet. LG’s offering offering added perks to get you splurge for the device with an extra battery, charging cradle and 32GB microSD card available by mail — if you purchase before June 21st. What does opening up your wallet to any of these carriers get you? On top of the aforementioned expandable storage, there’s great battery life, a 5.5-inch vibrant IPS Quantum display, capable 16-megapixel camera and more.

Microsoft’s apps will ship with Android tablets from LG and Sony


Microsoft PowerPoint on an Android tablet

If you thought Microsoft’s app deal with Samsung was surprising… well, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The Windows maker has reached agreements to bundle its apps and services on Android tablets from 20 companies. Most of these firms are small regional brands, but there are a few global powerhouses that include LG (which will include Microsoft on an unnamed future device) and Sony (starting with the Xperia Z4 Tablet). Yes, this probably means getting the Office suite and other apps you might not use much, if at all. However, it’s evident that Microsoft doesn’t mind — it’d rather make its services as ubiquitous as possible than send you straight into Google’s arms.

Well now, Microsoft has announced that the suite of Microsoft Office applications will be pre-installed on select Android tablets.

In March, we made access to Microsoft apps and services on mobile devices easier for customers by announcing strategic agreements with global OEMs Samsung and Dell, eight regional OEMs and top original device manufacturer Pegatron to pre-install Microsoft Office and Skype on Android tablets. Today I’m excited to announce that 20 additional global and local OEM partners, including LG, Sony, Haier, Positivo and Wortman, will make Microsoft productivity applications and services available on their Android tablets. These 31 partners will offer Android tablets pre-installed with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, OneDrive and Skype in the near future.

Customers who don’t want to spread out the cost of the G4 can pair it with a two-year service agreement. Going that route sees the phone priced at $199 with a contract.

As part of a limited time promotion, buyers who preorder the handset will receive a free 32GB microSD card and an extra battery with charging cradle at no cost.

U.S. Cellular will let interested buyers preorder the LG G4 as early as May 29.

LG and Huawei are reportedly making Google’s Nexus phones this year


LG's Nexus 5 in red

If you were disappointed that your only choice for a new, official Google phone last year was the gargantuan Nexus 6, you’ll be glad to hear that 2015 could be very different. Android Police sources have elaborated on previous rumors with word that both LG and Huawei are working on Nexus handsets this year. The LG device, nicknamed Angler, would have a 5.2-inch screen and might borrow the G4’s six-core Snapdragon 808 processor — effectively, it’d be a modernized Nexus 5. Huawei’s phone, Bullhead, would pack a bigger 5.7-inch display and could step up to a Snapdragon 810 chip. Think of it as a not-so-ungainly Nexus 6.

Some of the specs of both devices are up in the air, so it’s not clear just how sophisticated they’ll be. They should show up around the typical Nexus release window for October, however, which suggests that they’ll both be poster children for Android M. Just don’t expect a new tablet. AP‘s tipsters don’t believe there’s a revised Nexus slate in the works, which could leave the Nexus 9 soldiering on for another year.

Get the LG G4 from T-Mobile, starting tomorrow


LG_G4_From_NYC_02

T-Mobile’s LG G4 will be launching through their online store tomorrow, May 26. If you can wait, T-Mobile should have the LG G4 in-stores come June 3. In either option, T-Mobile will be the first carrier in the US to offer the LG G4.

Pre-orders should begin shipping tomorrow, as well. If you’re just looking at getting the device through T-Mobile, you can pick up LG’s new flagship for $0 down, on a $25/mo payment plan for 24 months. There’s always the option of buying it outright for $599, too.

T-Mobile is making buying the LG G4 from them even sweeter, though. Purchasers will receive a free 128GB microSD card, while supplies last. This is a drastic upgrade from the 32GB solution LG is offering to US buyers. Not sure about the LG G4 just yet? Be sure to check out our hands-on video below.
