Nokia is certainly far from its glory days as a global leader in smartphones. As a matter of fact, ever since its smartphone business was acquired by Microsoft one year ago, the company has stopped selling smartphones outright. But it appears that Nokia is still making money out of smartphones -- other companies' devices, to be exact.
Just in time for the holidays, Motorola is introducing some exciting year-end deals this week.
First off, Motorola is announcing that the Moto X 2014 edition offered at Verizon Wireless will now be priced at just $49.99. Buyers who decide to get the Motorola device from now until December 31st on a two-year Verizon plan will be able to enjoy savings of $50 from the regular subsidized price of $99.99.
Are you looking for a new tablet that is affordable? You might want to go to AT&T. The carrier is collaborating with phone maker LG in offering the LG G Pad 7.0 LTE for just $0.99.
There is a catch though. The offer is only open to who purchase a new smartphone on an AT&T Next early upgrade plan. Moreover, you will have to get the LG G Pad 7.0 LTE on a two-year contract with AT&T. But if you are okay with getting a smartphone and tablet upgrade now, you will enjoy savings of $99 (the normal on-contract price for the LG G Pad 7.0 LTE is $99.99).
It appears that HTC is jumpstarting the holiday season. Starting today, HTC is launching its Hot Deals program, a promo that will allow customers to purchase an HTC device for a discounted price.
The program works like this: for the next nine weeks, HTC will feature a Hot Deal every Tuesday at 9 AM Pacific time (that is 12 noon Eastern time). The Hot Deal of the week will come with a discounted price, and maybe even come with a discounted accessory.
