With the Samsung Galaxy S4 expected to be released at the end of this month, we aren't suprised at all that Galaxy S3 price has been dropped to $99 with 2 year contract.
It's actually a common practice for cellular carriers, manufacturers and retailers to drop the prices of older devices leading up to a big product launch. This allows them to sell as much inventory as possible to those who would prefer a better deal as opposed to newer device.
So will you buy the low priced Samsung Galaxy S3 or wait for the Galaxy S4, it's only $100 more.
PC game addicts should certainly be familiar with the Magicka game, published by Paradox. This is a popular fantasy game that has been around since 2011; especially those who love role-play games that have excellent story line and gameplay, without compromising humor value. Today, it can already be played by Android and iOS users; however, it will only be available on tablets.
This game features four elemental magicians with various skills and abilities that you can play co-op, so you can gang up on bosses and their minions.
This PC game highly owes its success to its style of gameplay, which is similar to another popular pastime for PC gamers, the Diablo.
It is a bit simplified from its original version and the characters now fight on a plane using tapping gestures and controls. There are icons at the bottom that you can use to create spells and you can even combine each of the globes to create a signature spell that works on specific enemies. One downside is that it apparently does not work on the Nexus 7 yet, so users who want to play this fun game will have to wait for updates.
HTC just sent out word via Twitter that the HTC One will not be delivered to Verizon. It can be recalled that components for its camera have been very limited and that HTC One deliveries will actually be delayed as a result. On the other hand, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint will all get their limited shares of units and will possibly receive their shipment this month. There is no exact date of release yet.
In place of the HTC One, Verizon recommends users to get the DROID DNA with its quad core Snapdragon chip and 5-inch display. Furthermore, it will conveniently receive the latest Jelly Bean roll out and the HTC Sense 5.0 interface similar to the HTC One. However, not everyone likes the way DROID DNA looks compared to the One. It seems like HTC is doing all it can for damage control.
