The promotion will go into effect on November 8th, just days before the release of the highly anticipated 4G LTE-compatible Motorola Droid RAZR.

Fujitsu’s ruggedized Honeycomb Android tablet blazing wtih 4G LTE for Japan

arrows_tab-330x550

The key factor that differentiates the Fujitsu Arrows Tab from all other tablets is that its rugged and runs Android 3.1 Honeycomb, of course, is its not the only ruggedized Android on the street. Competition is good. We heard rumors about the Arrows Tab being waterproof, but it looks like it’s all set up to be military-level spec to battle the bumps and bruises that it’ll surely experience along the way. It’s high-spec with 4G LTE to work with Docomo’s Xi network. Yeah, as with so many other Fujitsu products, this will likely gear up to be a Japan thing.

Maybe this is one of the (potentially many) reasons the iPhone 5 has been delayed several times. It’s not about white paint. Instead, we’re hearing that a version of the upcoming iPhone 5 is being tested with some 4G LTE capabilities. That’d make it pretty different from the current iPhone 4, wouldn’t you say?

A rose by any other name… though HTC probably doesn’t want you referring to this device as a rose. Over the course of its development life this smartphone has been called the HTC Incredible HD and the HTC Mecha. Well, it looks like Verizon and HTC have finally settled on an official name and it’s the HTC Thunderbolt. Thor would be proud.

Verizon creating largest 4G LTE network, iPhone on the horizon?

lte.200

With the “there’s a map for that” ad campaign, Verizon is proudly proclaiming that its 3G network offers much more coverage than AT&T’s 3G network. The trouble with this comparison is that AT&T’s network is typically faster than the Verizon equivalent. That might change very soon.

It won’t happen with the battle between Verizon’s EVDO and AT&T’s HSDPA, however. Instead, the battle is being taken to the fourth generation. Verizon aims to have both the largest and the fastest network in the nation when it launches its LTE network. That’s 4G, folks.

It’s going to be a tight squeeze, but Telus may be able to have its GSM-based network in time for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver. They’re going to be cutting it awfully close, but don’t expect Telus to do regular 2G GSM or 3G HSDPA. They’re skipping those technologies and heading straight into […]
