More and more manufacturers add extra durable phones to their offer; however, so far no company has managed to beat Kyocera when it comes to the number of rugged devices released each year. Kyocera believes that phones are meant to serve their purpose in diverse conditions and also that users shouldn’t be forced to sacrifice functionality for durability. That’s why the company combines both in its products. Kyocera’s latest offering, the DuraForce for US Cellular, is now available in carrier’s stores.
Although many smartphone manufacturers make their products more durable than they used to be, they are still very delicate devices. Does it mean that you have settle for a basic phone if you work in difficult conditions? Of course not. Luckily for you, there are phones that are made to withstand hardhips. One of such phones has just landed at AT&T. The carrier is now selling rugged Sonim XP6 Android phone built for people in extreme environments.
Some phones, especially premium ones, go official with fanfare. Others usually don’t generate so much interest, unless they have something special to offer, for example decent specs with LTE connectivity at affordable price. Where you can find such combination? In the LG F60 which was announced back in October. The phone is now for sale as LG Transpyre for Verizon pre-paid service for $99.99 without any contract . It’s a special offer for Verizon pre-paid customers – others will have to pay $199.99 to buy the device.
When LG announced the F60 in early October we were pleasantly surprised that it had LTE. While the fast radio is now standard in premium phones, the lower-end sector customers can’t count on data faster than 3G in most cases. Officially introduced as F60, the handset arrived at Metro PCS as the LG Optimus F60 and is now available in carrier’s stores for cheap at $99.99 without contract after a $10 instant rebate, and a $50 mail-in rebate.
When a new smartphone is announced, manufacturers often reveal pricing and availability details together with specs. Sometimes, however, they opt not to this immediately. That’s what Motorola did with the Nexus 6. The phone was announced on October 15th, but we had to wait almost the whole month to learn which carriers will offer the device, when and for how much. If you are wondering where you can buy the Google Nexus 6 on contract, here are the details.

„The more the merrier” seems to be AT&T’s motto these days.

This week AT&T appear to have their hands full with announcing multiplicity of new phones joining their list of offerings.

The vast majority of phones released nowadays are of smart kind, but it doesn’t mean that good old flip phones are dead. In fact, some users don’t feel very confident with smart technologies and prefer basic devices without any fancy features. With such users in mind Samsung together with AT&T released the rugged Samsung Rugby 4. This tough guy featuring push-to-talk via AT&T’s Enhanced PTT service is now for sale via carrier’s online store.
What a better way to celebrate new partnership than to release a new smartphone?

The HTC-made Desire brand is one of the most recognizable in the US and probably worldwide. For the last few years, however, the Taiwanese manufacturer focused on other lineups. Just when we thought that the Desire family was put to rest, a certain Desire 610 arrived on AT&T in late July. Last month we heard rumors that Verizon could be getting ready to launch its own version of the phone and guess what? The XLTE-ready HTC Desire 612 for Verizon is now on sale for free on contract in carrier’s stores.

The new 6-inch ZTE Grand X Max phablet is coming to budget carrier Cricket Wireless on October 10th.
Most manufacturers waited until IFA to announced their new phones in order to make sure that the products would receive a proper amount of attention.

The handset can be had for just $79.99 on a prepaid plan with no contract, free shipping and free activation.

Right behind it are such manufacturers as Samsung with its Galaxy S series, HTC with the One lineup, LG and its G family, Sony’s Xperia phones and a few more.
