AT&T places Lumia 920 and 8GB HTC 8X at $100, Lumias arrive on Friday

AT&T is laying down the suppression fire for its new WIindows Phone 8 smartphones: the flagship Lumia 920 will retail for $99.99 on a new 2-year contract, the same as the 8GB version of the HTC 8X. And if you’re not into getting into Benjamin territory for the better quality and speed, you can go for the lower-end Lumia 820, which will retail for $49.99 on a new contract. Both of the Nokia handsets will be available to pre-order from the 7th (ahem, tomorrow) and available on the 9th (Friday), while the 8X should be rolling around “before Thanksgiving.” That all being said, there’s a PR after the break.

Skyrim’s “Dragonborn” DLC Trailer Is Now Headed For Your Knees

This is Bethesda’s latest DLC — Dragonborn. Big hooplah, eh? Actually, flying dragons and some amazing new areas are interesting adventures awaiting you, probably not only confined to the world of Skyrim (perhaps Morrowind?). Anyway you twist it though, PlayStation players get the crappy part of it — none of the two older DLCs (Dawnguard and Heartfire) — reached the console.

But no matter! Xbox 360 is getting it December 4th for 1,600 Microsoft points and the PC players will see their version come out on Steam, soon enough.

Samsung Ativ Smart PC Coming To AT&T Nov. 9th With Windows 8 For $799

This is a Windows 8 tablet geared for success. When we had a hands-on with it at AT&T Unwrapped, we were impressed. And the fact that it’s coming to AT&T’s 4G LTE network for $799.99 on a new 2-year contract, this November 9th is fantastic. Specs include a 11.6-inch display, 64GB of internal storage (expandable up to 96GB when you factor in the microSD slot) and a 1.5GHz Intel Atom chipset.

All in all, this is looking good, plus it ships with Windows 8 out of the box.

HTC EVO 4G LTE Review: ‘Tis Well, Alas Sprint LTE Is Scarce

This is a very classy, metallic, and 1.5GHz dual-core processor smartphone, with an 8MP camera, 4G LTE data speeds, an HD 4.7-inch Super LCD display, with built-in kickstand (!!!) with Beats Audio integration merged with Android 4.0 and the Sense 4.1 UI — all while being 8.9mm thin. That’s all great and all, but the fact of the matter is that I’ve reviewed the same phone twicethe One X got reviewed, as well as the One S — so I haven’t much to say, software-wise. Sprint has made minimal integration of carrier apps in the software, and it remains rather uncluttered. The design is sublime, with a rich display is that only matched by Apple’s iPhone 5, HTC’s own One X, and the Galaxy S III from Samsung.

In this unusual event then, I’ll beckon you to head onward, read the review notes, and figure out if the newest EVO has the chops to rock the brand name..

Don’t Forget: Set That Dumb Clock Of Yours For Post-Daylight Savings Time

Oh, yeah. It’s that time of the year again: you have to set the dumb clock in your house to post-Daylight Savings Time (DST) — that’s about back one hour, to normal time. Most of the clocks in your home however are pretty smart: like your laptops, tablets, smartphones, some TVs, and even atomic watches — but there’s bound to be one or two that are off the mark by about an hour. And that’s your job to change it.

Don’t be lazy, otherwise you’ll find yourself an hour behind — in everything. And we can’t have that now, can we?


The New PlayStation Store Debuts In North America

Not much here: just a super redesign for the PlayStation Store in North America, where PlayStation 3 users will be content with flashy navigation and new content. This also updates the aging XMB experience that the PS3 has had to endure all these years. And despite Microsoft’s continued epic success with the Xbox 360, this update makes the PS3 more worthy, if only slightly.

Bethesda Teases Upcoming “Dragonborn” Skyrim DLC

This is the newest DLC for Skyrim — after the fantastic Heartfire, which added homes of your own, and Dawnguard, adding a new storyline with vampires and their hunters — based off with the name, “Dragonborn”. This obviously refers to the main character, who is Dragonborn.

But check this out: that armor looks fantastic. An official trailer is planned for release, on Monday.
