The phone is going to launch at some point before the end of the month in Hong Kong at the price of HK$ 4,998 ($645). There’s no word yet on when or if the handset will be making it to other countries.

Free Google Play download of the soundtrack to Disney’s animated hit “Frozen”

From 9to5Toys.com:

Google Play has listed the soundtrack to Disney’s runaway hit “Frozen” as a free download. Adored by fans and critics, this film became the highest-grossing animated film of all time (passing Toy Story 3), and its infectious soundtrack has spurred live performances and a sing-along versions.

This version of the soundtrack includes 32 songs, a mixture of traditional songs and instrumentals. It, of course, includes the larger than life hit “Let It Go.” There’s also a 2-disc Deluxe Version if you still need more Frozen goodness in your life.

The only way this deal could be better is if Google threw in some warm hugs from Olaf. Start downloading!

It’s priced at $6.99 at iTunes and Amazon.
