The BGR Show: Episode 10 – UP3, Samsung’s future, exclusives and more

Last week’s show was one of our biggest so far, thanks in part to a little Apple exclusive we snuck in there. Well, this week we’ve got a couple more exclusives peppered in throughout the show, and we cover our widest range of topics yet. We cover Zach’s love/hate relationship with the new Jawbone UP3, Samsung’s fantastic new ARTIK initiative, an insider’s report on the upcoming iPhone 6s, and yes, the Apple Watch.

Things also get real when the show is interrupted not once but twice by phone calls — first from AT&T and then from Apple’s special private Apple Watch Edition support line — and we play those calls right on the podcast. If you thought you knew how crazy Jonathan is getting waiting for his Edition to finally ship, just wait… More →

The Boy Genius Report Podcast: Episode 2

This week was a big one for smartphones and devices. We brought you live Mobile World Congress 2015 coverage and boy, were there some hot new phones announced. The Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and HTC One M9 are the top of the tippy tip when it comes to great Android devices. Additionally, MWC was a smartwatchfest with new devices from LG, Huawei, Alcatel (alcawho?), and many others.

In this week’s podcast, I give my thoughts on the event and announcements, plus pepper in some information on smart home integration and Apple Car by listener request. More →

Huawei Watch Price Release Date Comparison

Huawei’s Watch is priced into the stratosphere, exclusive details here

Huawei’s Watch is priced into the stratosphere, exclusive details here

With Apple’s Watch pricing set to be announced at Monday’s upcoming Spring Forward event, one of our sources has informed us of another smartwatch’s price — that of the Huawei Watch. An Android Wear watch with gold and silver case, it certainly is one of the most premium and normal-looking smartwatches introduced on the Android side of things. However, the price is outrageous. We have heard that the Huawei Watch price is $1,000. Yes — one thousand dollars for an Android Wear device. All the credit to Huawei for thinking they could pull this off. They won’t be able to, but I’m pretty sure we won’t ever find out how many the company has sold anyway.

Apple has been hard at work on multiple upcoming iOS versions simultaneously, and we’ve been told that iOS 8.2 is finally moving to the release stage. Barring any last minute problems, I would expect to see iOS 8.2 released this coming Monday, or the following week at the absolute latest. More →
