  • Hot on the heels of Apple's reorganization of its online storage tiers for iCloud, Amazon has made some changes to its Cloud Drive service too. However, in this case it's not good news at all. While Apple is now basically offering 2TB for the price of 1TB, Amazon has decided to end its unlimited storage subscription. This was launched more than two years ago, and it was available for $59.99 per year. From this point on, though, Amazon Cloud Drive only has two paid tiers left alongside the free 5GB option: you either get 100GB for $11.99 per year, or 1TB if you pay $59.99. That's it. Given these price points, you can pretty much say that the unlimited tier was replaced with the one giving you just 1TB of storage. If you need even more, you'll have to shell out $59.99 for each additional terabyte per year, but there's a top limit of 30TB that's simply impossible to go past even so. These changes went live today. If you've got the unlimited storage pla..

  • Ever since its announcement last month we've known that HTC's U11 would arrive in most places sporting 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage, but that there would be some exceptions to that. Namely, some countries that are going to be blessed with a different version of the phone, one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. While HTC itself hasn't yet shared an official list of these, a famed leakster of information related to the Taiwanese company has decided to help by publishing a "preliminary" list of those markets. For now there are nine entrants, but more could be added. So, without further ado, here's where you'll find an HTC U11 with 6GB of RAM: China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Hong Kong, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and the Philippines. The 6GB iteration of the handset will come only in dual-SIM configuration, apparently. Some additional countries in the Middle East may get this model too, as well as certain (yet unnamed) African nations. That&#03..

  • At first, it seemed that the 6GB/128GB version of the Samsung Galaxy S8+ will be reserved for China and South Korea, but availability has now expanded to India too. You can’t buy one just yet, availability is set for June 9. You’ll be able to snag one through Samsung’s own online store or Flipkart (you can pre-order as soon as tomorrow). The S8+ with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage will set you back INR 75,000 ($1,160/€1,035). That’s INR 10,000 more than the 4GB/64GB model, which is INR 65,000 ($1,000/€900). Note that this handset is powered by the Exynos 8895 chipset. Besides the extra memory, there are no differences. . Via
