A lot of people wrote T-Mobile off when its big merger with AT&T fell through last year. The pink carrier had no iPhone, no 4G. But with yesterday's announcement of the company's official LTE rollout, it may have just put itself in a position to offer something no one else can.
While the One X may be HTC's beast of a flagship device, the One S is not far behind. It's packing a new Snapdragon S4 processor into one of the most solidly built phones I've ever put my paws on.
Nokia Siemens is going to demo HSPA+ Multiflow—a new cell tech that lets phones talk to two cell towers at once—at Mobile World Congress. It's the first time that the tech, which can apparently double data speeds, will be shown working on stuff you might actually be able to buy.
As of Sunday, AT&T is going to have some new data plans on offer. It's not some super-sweet double-data-deal, but it doesn't suck either. Basically, you can add a gig of data to your plan for five bucks.
Oh Snap. HP may be launching a new glossy, white webOS tablet in August. This new model comes hot on the heels of the original TouchPad which launched last week.
The iPhone 4 takes fantastic pictures, for a phone. With the myTouch 4G Slide, HTC's promising the first phone since the iPhone that takes better pictures and doesn't suck at, well, everything else.
Good news, people of Ames, Iowa; Anderson, Indiana; Battle Creek, Benton Harbor and Jackson, Michigan; Fort Collins-Loveland, Colorado; Lawrence and Manhattan, Kansas; Springfield, Illinois; and Wichita Falls, Texas! T-Mobile is rolling out its HSPA+ 4G network to your areas, and upping the speed to 42Mbps in Las…
AT&T's got new data plans to go with the wireless hotspot feature debuting in its first 4G Android phones—which they're "working with Apple to bring it to iPhone"—and they actually screw you less than before.
Samsung's just made the Galaxy S 4G official, though they're offering up curiously few details. It's coming to T-Mobile's HSPA+ network—Samsung's first to support the full 21Mbps—it'll have a Super AMOLED display and it'll run Android 2.2. [Samsung]
It's conventional wisdom now that iPhone exclusivity is the best and worst thing that ever happened to AT&T. A rocket that sent them into space—and directly into the sun. Will the same thing happen to Verizon?
"Holy shit." It's not what usually comes to mind when I touch a new phone. But Samsung's Infuse 4G is spectacular. Ridiculously good 4.5-inch screen. 1.2GHz processor. 4G on AT&T. Why, exactly, wasn't this the new Nexus phone?
AT&T is going call their HSPA+ (normally considered fast 3G), 4G, like T-Mobile. They're also going to start deploying their LTE network (Verizon's type of 4G) starting this summer. For an explanation between the two, see here.
The next T-Mobile myTouch, which looks to be a fine phone, as T-Mobile's first video-chatting Android phone, is being re-branded as the myTouch 4G. But it's not really 4G. It's pretty lame of them to call it that.
The official sequel to the first Googlephone, the T-Mobile G2 is a long time coming. In a market where carriers molest the open OS anew every time a new handset drops, this is the Android phone for the Android nerd.
The newest myTouch iteration goes balls out with video: Video chat over Wi-Fi and T-Mobile's HSPA+ network with a front-facing camera and 720p video recording with the rear camera—shared wirelessly with any DLNA-compatible screen.
