New stuff! AT&T just announced that it will begin selling the LG G3 and G Watch on July 11. The G Watch will sell for $229, the same price as it does on the Google Play Store. The G3 will be available for $199 on a two-year contract or you can go the AT&T Next route and pay zero down, but $29/month for 12 months. Both devices will be available in stores and online beginning July 11, but starting tomorrow, you can pre-order them if you so desire.
AT&T is the first carrier out of the gate to begin selling Android Wear devices. As such, it’s going to be the first one responsible for pushing the devices into the hands of consumers. Android Wear has oodles of potential, so we’re hoping that the G Watch works with it well, so as not to tarnish the name of Android Wear before it even takes off.
As for the G3, well, you can read our review here. But in case you want to know how it is in one word: excellent.
