Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A headed to Europe.
Microsoft’s next-generation Surface RT might arrive with Qualcomm chips and LTE support. The company is reportedly testing Surface devices with the Snapdragon 800 processor.
J.K. Shin, Samsung co-chief executive, has confirmed that the company has plans to launch a Galaxy S4 version with LTE-Advanced 4G technology.
If you’re a storage space fanatic, I can understand why you may need 128GB for your music, files and movies, and Apple seem to understand this as well. But because of the lack of external storage support, the only way to bolster up your memory is to buy a brand new model.
Now, thanks to a recent FCC Filing, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy Camera will be outfitted with Verizon LTE sometime soon.
The Galaxy S3 deal is being offered through Amazon and it’s for the Verizon version of the Android smartphone. As a quick reminder, this phone has a 4.8-inch 720p display, Android 4.0 ICS, 8MP camera, 16GB memory, microSD slot, and it’s mobile hotspot capable. It also takes advantage of Verizon’s 4G LTE network, giving you average data rates in the 5Mbps to 12Mbps range.
When the LG Nexus 4 was first announced as not being 4G LTE enabled, there was certainly some mixed response. Some of us didn’t care a less, considering the great price.
Interested in the idea of a Huawei Windows Phone 8 handset? The Huawei Ascend W1 is coming soon enough, and from the looks of it, the device has its own unique aesthetic that sets the device apart from other Windows Phone 8 devices.
The kicker here is that I don’t have to pay a dime; FreedomPop gives out 4G wireless Internet for free, including providing you with a mobile hotspot. To give them a try, I ordered the FreedomPop Photon 4G mobile hotspot and here are my impressions.
For those of you who didn’t know, there is a free ISP out there who has, since the late-90s offered completely free access to the net. Or slightly quicker access for as little as $10, the service is called “NetZero”. The problem? It is dial-up internet and only you’re grandma is going to use it. This is finally changing though, as NetZero will be offering a 4G Internet option helping it become relevant in an era where dial-up is all but extinct.
US Cellular has finally joined the 4G LTE Bandwagon, launching its own service. While many of us have been expecting this for a while, it was a bit unclear which 4G LTE phones would be the first to hit US Cellular’s new network.
In areas with Verizon Wireless LTE service, the Sleek 4G-V is aimed to give you a strong LTE signal, as well as conventional 3G or 2G signals. Benefits include fewer dropped connections and no-service “dead zones,” faster data transfer rates and improved battery life for wireless devices.
AT&T is expanding their LTE wireless network and, as expected, has announced the addition of a number of devices into their LTE handset line-up at CES. The devices that will soon be released onto their high-speed network include five new Android handsets, an Android tablet and two Windows Phone smartphones.
CES appears to be becoming the first big auto event of the year where auto giants can shine with their latest in-car technologies to consumers. At the upcoming CES next month, GM’s OnStar will be showing off their new in-car system and they have just teased us with.
Improving on the original SGS2 is the upgraded Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket, an Android smartphone bound for AT&T’s recently expanded LTE network.
The Galaxy Nexus is expected to be release very soon, it’s even now listed in the VZW’s Device Management system as “Samsung Galaxy Nexus”, confirming the “G-Nex” nickname. According to the listing, the new phone will have a 4G LTE radio to take advantage of the fastest network out there.
On the surface, it seemed like any number of other Android smartphones, but it’s that extra functionality that really looked like it was going to be a game changer. But how does that whole docking into a multimedia centre experience really pan out in real life?
Samsung has unveiled LTE (Long-Term Evolution) versions of its GALAXY S II smartphone and GALAXY Tab 8.9. Displayed at this week’s IFA 2011, the devices will have access to 4G download speeds of up to 100Mbps. If you can get yourself onto a 4G network, the (theoretical) upload speed is 50Mbps and double that when downloading. Samsung equates this to downloading a four-minute MP3 track in 0.3 seconds.
Maybe you take exception to the name Samsung Galaxy S II 4G, because the current model arguably doesn’t have “real” 4G technology. Well, that might be changing, because a slightly different version equipped with LTE code named “celox” has made its way onto the Internet.
Are you digging the 10-inch variation on Samsung’s Android tablet, but you wish it had some faster wireless connection options? Wish no more, because the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with 4G is going to start arriving in stores on July 28. That’s tomorrow, in case you didn’t want to check your calendar.
What’s that? You just picked up the HP TouchPad and you think you’re the new king of the tablet kingdom? Think again. HP has already one-upped itself, because an upgraded version of the webOS tablet has been formally announced and it `comes with two notable bumps on the spec sheet.
If this holds up to be true, and we don’t really see any reason why it wouldn’t, Dell would then be better positioned to compete against all the other 10-inch (ish) tablets on the market like the Motorola Xoom, the upcoming Galaxy Tab 10.1, and even the iPad 2. By going with 5, 7, and 10-inch variants, they’re really trying to offer a size for every taste.
Since the International Telecommunications buckled under pressure from cell-phone companies and redefined their definition of 4G to include any technology faster than what they had in 2009, cellular providers across the U.S. have been taking advantage of pretty words and undeserved titles to class up what is in fact not 4G. And it’s not just one or two companies.
Old Magenta has formally announced that the seven-inch slate will hit shelves this week for just $199.99. That’s assuming, of course, that you want one of those two-year contracts
Motorola today at CES unveiled the AT&T bound Atrix 4G Android smartphone. This device packs in a 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor with 1GB of RAM. The massive 4-inch display will be a QHD 24-bit capacitive touchscreen, giving Apple’s Retina Display a run for its money.
Wilson Electronics is bringing some of that innovation a little closer to home with their announcement of a new product line of 4G signal boosters. The 4G AWS is the first product up for release and it boosts signals on the Advanced Wireless Service (AWS) spectrum band. It’s intended for indoor installations, whether for home or office, and it will strengthen the connection range and also increase transfer speeds in places that are subject to a weaker signal.
I think the image provided here is pretty clear. There’s not too much ambiguity about it unless they really want to throw us into a loop. If this image is to be believe, the kind folks at HTC will be formally unveiling the HTC Incredible HD on January 6 and the smartphone will play happy with the newfangled Verizon LTE 4G network.
Are you rocking one of those cool Samsung Epic 4G smartphones with hardly any 4G coverage in sight? If you happen to be among the five new markets announced today, that has now changed. Sprint has rolled out its WiMAX network to Los Angeles, Miami, Washington DC, Cleveland, and Columbus. Go ahead. Enjoy the faster speeds.
We have a couple of juicy tidbits for all the HTC smartphone enthusiasts in the audience. First, HTC has indeed confirmed that it has an LTE smartphone in the works, but it seems that this device will be slightly delayed in its launch. For now, the timetable is calling for a launch “some time in 2011.”
Digging the idea of going 4G on your mobile phone, but you’d prefer something a little different from the Taiwan-sourced HTC EVO 4G? The wait is almost over. You will soon get a Korean alternative from Sprint when it launches the much anticipated Samsung Epic 4G.
Remember when the SDXC memory card format was formally revealed by the SD Association a couple years ago? Well, the actual products are slowly filtering into the marketplace, including a 64GB offering from Kingston Technology. Whereas other competitors like Panasonic have released their 32GB and 64GB SDXC cards, Kingston is staying in the game with their 64GB SDXC UHS-1 Class 10 card. Just like SDHC before it, SDXC is not backwards compatible.
So, you’re on a Spring Break trip, perhaps with the iPad you managed to snag or your tried, true, trusty netbook, but you can’t seem to find a Wi-Fi hotspot anywhere. You’re desperately looking for a place to connect but there’s nothing there. Sprint and Sierra Wireless have you covered, literally.
One of the newest devices to hit the shelves is the Overdrive 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot by Sierra Wireless. Made available through Sprint, this credit card-sized device takes 3G and 4G connections and converts them into a usable Wi-Fi hotspot for up to five Wi-Fi supported gadgets.
Its that time of year again when the new iPhone is just around the corner. Just before the summer of every year, the Messiah Jobs comes down from his mountain to bestow upon the land his latest gift to mankind. The groundswell of anticipation from the people below reaches deafening heights as June approaches.
With all the anxious anticipation comes the plethora of educated predictions and “reliable sources” that foretell of the miracles that the latest and greatest will contain. The list seems ever-long, yet consistent. Rumors of a forward facing camera, HD video, higher resolution display, and multi-tasking are always at the top, accompanied with some believable-yet-bogus photoshopped image.
Managing your email’s on your iPhone will are going to get easier with the promise of a universal email inbox on the next Apple iPhone. Current iPhones separate emails into separate boxes based on different email addresses, soon they will be neatly converged into one neat box, according to an email received from blogger Julio Manuel. Julio fired off an email to Steve Jobs complimenting their customer service and asking if there would be a universal email inbox on future iPhones, Jobs simply replied “Yep” from his iPad (big surprise in the device he used to respond).
There has been a lot of talk over the last year or so about the iPhone 4G (fourth generation) and its impending arrival. While the iPhone 4G stands for an increase in operating system and technological features of the device itself, it may also stand for the fourth generation of communications technology on the iPhone. Beceem, a company known for making components that make wireless communications possible, has managed to create a new chip that is indeed a 4G chip.
According to MacVideo, the new chip called the BCS5000 is said to have speeds and reliability up to the standards of the 4G.
What to do. You have a solid 3G connection with your USB modem, your colleagues are sitting around pretending to do something on a disconnected laptop, you need to share that connection somehow. With Connect One’s Wi-Reach Classic you just insert your 3G USB modem, and voila, a Wi-Fi cloud appears sharing with up to 10 people.
When EDGE first hit the scene, people were wowed by what it had to offer. When HSPA finally arrived, we were amazed by how fast the web could be accessed. The 4G LTE technology is the next natural progression and we may (or may not) be getting it sooner than expected. Yesterday, there was a […]
If you are like most other people, you may be finding that you need to stretch this year’s holiday gift-buying budget a little further than you had previously anticipated. Sure, you’d love nothing more than to buy the absolute best presents for your friends, family, and loved ones, but you just don’t have that kind […]
This might be a little bit of wishful thinking, but it would absolutely be awesome if they managed to pull it off. According to a high-ranking official at Verizon Wireless, the cellular service provider will start rolling out its 4G LTE network as early as next year. More specifically, Verizon Communications Executive Vice President and […]
Some people are saying that if AT&T didn’t push Research in Motion to create an HSDPA-equipped BlackBerry that the Bold may not have ever come into existence. Well, it seems that while RIM wasn’t quite as motivated to do HSDPA on its own, it very much wants to create a BlackBerry that takes advantage of […]
By and large, most of the developed world operates on some form of GSM-based technology. Whether you find yourself in Taipei or Barcelona, the cellular service provider probably does the GSM thing. There are very few places left in the world that still do CDMA and we happen to live in one of them. Even […]
