Verizon 250MB Share Everything Plan makes Smartphones cheaper
Verizon Wireless has added a new Share Everything data plan to its line that lets people that don’t need a lot of data each month get into a new device on the cheap. The new plan has a scant 250MB of data each month reportsEngadget. That data will be gone in short order with a couple streamed videos.
The good news is that if you spend most of your time on WiFi and can get by with 250MB of data, you can save $20 per month on your bill. The new plan is available right now.
With the new plan in place, a smartphoneuser can get service for $10 a month more than a basic phone user can. A basic phone plan costs $50 per month and with the new 250MB data plan, a smartphone costs $60 per month. The overage charges for this plan will make your head spin if you go over. Considering how easy it is to use data at home or in the office accidently if you lose your WiFi connection, I can see this plan costing people a lot of money if they aren’t careful.

Some good news and some bad news here folks.
First the good:
Last week I bemoaned the lack of any alternatives to the monster Lumia 1520 or Glance-less Lumia 930 for top end WP 8 phones. Clearly someone was paying attention as it would appear HTC are about to unleash a Windows Phone version of the HTC One (M8).
The One (M8) has an impressive list of specs, so we can only hope that these are transported ... Source: Cool Smart Phone
