Samsung’s new Gear S smartwatch available for purchase starting November 7

Samsung’s new Gear S smartwatch will be available for purchase starting November 7th, and it will be available on all four major US carriers: T Mobile, Sprint, AT&T and Verizon. Moreover, the device will be available for purchase on Samsung’s store shops at Best Buy locations in the US. The smartwatch will be available in white and black and no official prices were released yet, meaning that carriers will have some freedom in picking their prices. Don’t expect it to be cheap though.

Gear S smartwatch has a built-in cellular radio and a curved OLED 2-inch screen, has a dual-core 1.0 GHz CPU with 4 GB of storage and 512 MB of RAM and runs on a Tizen based platform. It has integrated cellular connectivity which makes it more independent than other such devices and it can notify you without being paired with a phone. If you want, you can even make phone-calls from the watch even if it won’t use the same number as the one found on your smartphone.

Sprint announced it will be selling Gear S for $384, whereas T Mobile will retail the device at $349.92 at full cost. They are both pushing for monthly financing plans which will allow customers to get the device with $0 paid up front and a full payment done over 24 months. AT&T and Verizon will probably opt for the same plans or sell the device for over $300.

Dell Venue 8 7000 confirmed by Dell and Intel – the world’s new thinnest tablet

Dell Venue 8 7000 series will be one of the first Android-running tablets from Dell and it appears the device will launch sometime soon (The Verge says it will arrive in time for the holidays). Venue 7000 has a rather vintage look with a slim body at its 6mm of thickness and it seems to surpass Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact’s most slim tablet in the world.

Venue 8 has little to no bezels with its speakers positioned at the topside near the front-facing camera.  The Dell tablet will be the first such device to sport Intel’s Real Sense depth-mapping tech. the feature uses three cameras on the back of the tablet which allow for post-capture refocusing and other options (space measurements, selective color exclusion based on distance).

Venue 8 has a light aluminum body with an OLED 8.4” display running at 2560 x 1600p Quad HD that allows the user to see beautiful and sharp images. We don’t know Dell’s price tag yet, but we will keep you posted as soon as we find out.
