The newest Sprint unlimited plan includes free Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Tidal

Dallas News Sprint has announced a new high-end unlimited plan, called Unlimited Premium, for $90 a month. It includes a free subscription to Amazon Prime, in addition to free access to Hulu and Tidal. The plan also throws in 50GB of LTE mobile hotspot data a month. Sprint made a surprise late Friday announcement, revealing that it has launched a new unlimited plan. This one is called Unlimited Premium, and it has a few features that might make it very attractive for many customers, even with its high price tag of $90 a month (with auto-pay) for one line. If you bring your own phone or buy a new phone at the full retail price from Sprint, you can get Unlimited Premium for the lower price of $80 a month.   You may remember that a few months ago, Sprint announced it was breaking up its one unlimited plan into two: Unlimited Basic and Unlimited Plus. The new Unlimited Premium plan will have all of the features of the $70 a month Unlimited Plus. That cheaper plan includes free access to the Limited Commercials version of the Hulu video streaming service, free access to the basic Tidal music streaming service, video streaming at up to 1080p resolution, 15GB of LTE mobile hotspot data a month, unlimited talk, text and data when in Mexico and Canada, and global roaming in over 185 countries....

Two phones – likely the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL – hit the FCC

BGR Two FCC listings just got declassified on the FCC website. It is highly likely these new listings are for the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL. The only really new information here is the alleged model numbers of the Pixel 3 line. With all the Google Pixel 3 leaks we’ve been talking about over the past few weeks, we sometimes forget that usually at this point in the release cycle, FCC listings are some of our first looks at new devices. But nothing has been normal about the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL so far. With that in mind, we now have FCC listings for two Google-branded devices that are almost certainly the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL. Notably, the FCC listings were filed directly by Google, which is a big change from the Google Pixel and Google Pixel 2 listings. Those FCC applications were filed by the manufacturers of the devices, specifically HTC and LG.

Sony Provides Yet Another Statement for the Lack of ‘Fortnite’ Cross Platform Play With Other Consoles

Fortnite (Free) continues to increase in both userbase and mindshare across gaming and non gaming circles but ever since E3 and specifically Nintendo’s showcase, Sony has been under fire from the media and from Fortnite players who own more than one console platform. While Sony initially was all for cross play with PC and mobile platforms when Microsoft and Nintendo were against it, things have changed. Both Microsoft and Nintendo are more than happy to play alongside each other and allow gamers and developers to do as they please with cross platform support. The problem with Fortnite and Sony is that people had their accounts locked into the PS4 console with no way to link to Xbox or Switch. Right now, Cross play on PS4 works with iOS, Android, and PC platforms but not any other console. The drama had more or less settled and sadly everyone had slowly forgotten or accepted that PS4 cross play for Fortnite would not change but a new interview has reignited the flames. Talking to The Independent, Sony chief executive Kenichiro Yoshida had some interesting things to say about VR and PlayStation but his comments on cross play and Fortnite are below: “On cross-platform, our way of thinking is always that PlayStation is the best place to play. Fortnite, I believe, partnered with PlayStation 4 is the best experience for users, that’s our...

But those issues are compared against the $700 price tag. Today, you can nab a Razer Phone deal that will save you $150 off that list price, which gets you a Razer Phone for $550 with free Prime shipping. With that much money saved, the issues surrounding the Razer Phone may not be that big of a deal anymore. Editor’s Pick Razer Phone review Gaming laptop and peripheral giant Razer surprised everyone with its entry into the smartphone space, born from the acquisition of contentious, but fondly remembered Nextbit. The result of this new partnership is one of the most … For $550, you’re getting a device with a 120Hz display, 8GB of RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, a 4,000mAh battery, and Android 8.1 Oreo. That’s pretty awesome. The biggest drawback of the Razer Phone is its lackluster camera. And that’s not to say that the camera is bad, it’s just not great. If you can get past that, this phone will be a solid investment. For what it’s worth, Razer has been issuing improvements to the camera at a pretty steady pace.
