Arriving today at Verizon Wireless is the recently leaked LG Lucid 3. A variant of the LG L90 we took a look at during our time at Mobile World Congress 2014, the smartphone offers a fair amount of hardware, free of charge (with a 2-year contract and after $ 50 mail-in rebate). In an effort to get their wireless customers off their dumbphone, Verizon says they’ll even kick in an extra $ 50 in trade-in value for those who turn in their basic phone with Edge (but only for a limited time).

The Samsung Galaxy S5 doesn’t officially launch until April 11th, but if you’ve already got it set in your mind that you’ll be picking one up on launch day, you may need a few accessories to go along with it. Samsung is here to accommodate, making a good amount of Galaxy S5 accessories available for pre-order direct from their site.

They’re a little tough to find, but now available are the Galaxy S5 wireless charging battery covers, available in both black and white (electric blue was strangely absent). If you needed a little more protection, you can also opt for the wireless charging S View Flip Covers, which are also available in black white. If you’re looking for something with a little more color, the standard flip covers (no wireless charging) are available in a plethora of colors...

T-Mobile wins court case over Aio Wireless regarding use of magenta-like colors

Texas court rules AT&T has to choose a new color scheme for its budget prepaid brand

Following an extensive suit culminating in a three-day hearing, T-Mobile has won a court case finding that AT&T's prepaid brand Aio Wireless was using colors too similar to T-Mobile's in its branding. The lawsuit, which sparked up quickly after Aio Wireless launched, claimed that AT&T specifically used a color it calls "plum" that was very close to T-Mobile's trademark magenta color specifically to confuse customers.

The portable Bluetooth speaker market is sizzling hot, making it difficult to pick a standout among the crowd of contenders. I found a worthy candidate, the Soundfreaq Sound Spot, a diminutive wireless music maker with an attractive wood-like façade that makes its $ 69 price a surprise. Let’s listen carefully, and see if it can topple our favorite tiny speaker.

What looks like bamboo on the front is a cleverly painted piece of plastic, a design embossed by using a process called hydrographic printing. The result is lovely, giving it a rich look that I swore was wood until Soundfreaq told me otherwise. If you don’t care for this wood/white look, you can also get the speaker in black, and the company says there are other colors coming in a couple of months. Read more…
