The company is expected to unveil its new turnaround plans late in the first quarter. It seems T-Mobile could most defiantly use iPhone 5’s magic , to breathe some fresh air into their company. Only time will tell if the iPhone 5 will make an appearance on T-Mobile.
Then, on top of that, Verizon had this setback with three separate outages of their 4G/LTE network in December alone, and it’s unclear whether customers will be receiving a credit on their accounts because of the outage or whether the 4G/LTE network will be able to support additional devices like the iPhone 5.
New reports are in surrounding the Nokia Ace for AT&T, including confirmation that it is in fact the Lumia 900, which will be sold globally as Nokia’s flagship windows phone.
The iPhone 4S being announced just a day before creator of iPhone, Steve Jobs’ passing away was just far too intense. AT&T released their numbers that the preorder session for Apple’s iPhone 4S was the most successful iPhone launch to date. They received over 200,000 preorders during the first twelve hours the new phone model […]
Naturally, the Xperia Pro is geared toward a slightly different kind of customer than the Xperia Play. Instead of slide-out gaming controls, it gets a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
The Motorola Droid Bionic finally got an official release date a little while ago and that release date is today. Now we have to ask if the Bionic was really worth the long wait. Yes, the claim is that the Droid Bionic will “rule all machines” and it is only available at Verizon Wireless, but we also have to realize that this phone was announced way back at CES in January. That’s eight months ago and a lot has changed in those eight months.
You know that gorgeous Super AMOLED Plus display on the Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone? You know how the colors are positively popping with saturation and the overall visual experience absolutely floors you? You will soon get a bigger version of that eye-popping visual, because the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is the world’s first tablet to boast a Super AMOLED Plus display.
Moving forward, we thought that Nokia was largely dedicated to the Windows Phone 7 platform, but it looks like they’re not quite ready to give up on Symbian just yet. In fact, they just created a new updated version called Symbian Belle and it’s being offered in three new smartphones: the Nokia 600, Nokia 701, and the Nokia 700.
Since the release of the Galaxy S II in May, Samsung is estimated to have sold between 18 and 21 million smartphones globally, compared to Apple’s 20.3 million iPhones, the report says.
You know how Nokia is supposed to be doing the Windows Phone 7 thing with Microsoft these days? Well, they’re not quite ready to give up on their own platforms just yet either. It’s not Symbian, but the new Nokia N9 is hitting the streets with MeeGo instead of Windows.
RIM’s BlackBerry Playbook is the companies first effort to join the newly created applucrative tablet computing market. Apple launched the iPad just over one year ago, and in that time sold 14.8 million units or more. They have also recently launched a successor to the iPad 1 tablet, bringing many more features to the table that were expected the first time around.
In July 2008 Nvidia admitted a high failure rate in some of their graphics processors due to a “packaging defect.” Hold up now, this reason is not explained in much detail beyond that. But many technicians are attributing this problem to improperly applied heat-transfer material (that silver gook that allows thermal energy to transfer from the chip to your heatsink and cooling fan.) The faulty Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT graphics processor was the GPU chip affected and the problems inevitably resulted in the loss of video or the inability to boot your MacBook Pro entirely. Again, they say a “packaging defect” was the problem. Would it be safe to say the MacBook Pro is the packaging? Nvidia was unavailable to comment on this “packaging problem” as they do not discuss agreements about their hardware partners.
I’m not at all convinced that I would want a notebook computer that doesn’t have a physical keyboard, but I almost said the same thing about touchscreen-only smartphones not that long ago. Pushing this trend along is the dual screen-wielding Acer Iconia, which is now being put up for pre-order.
Tascam’s update to their popular DR-07 handheld portable recorder is bringing the two popular stereo mic configurations to a single device.
Isn’t it so much better when everything just kind of fits together? Like a jigsaw puzzle? Where your otherwise scattered life seems to have some sense of order to it? Maybe that’s the motivation behind the announcement that all Sprint phones moving forward will be integrated with a Google Voice experience.
If you want to be happy when you dial 611 on your cell phone, it looks like Old Magenta is your best bet. JD Power and Associates just released its 2011 Wireless Customer Care Performance Study and T-Mobile came out on top. This is the second year in a row that T-Mo came in first.
We knew that this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas was going to represent the year of the tablet. We knew that just about everyone was jumping on board this newfound goldmine, but we had no idea how big this would become. How big? Well, there were over 100 new tablets revealed at CES 2011.
Nearly a year after Google entered talks with ARM Holdings, Google TV is speculated to be made available on the cheap, efficient ARM chipsets later this year. Charbax of ARMdevices.net published an article last week stating he has it on “very high authority from someone at Google (to remain anonymous) that an ARM-powered Google TV platform is coming soon.”
Even though it hasn’t been out for all that long, it seems that the price is starting to take some mild dips on the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Maybe this is because we’re in the wake of an Android tablet overload from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Whatever the case, Sprint has lowered the price on the 7-inch tablet to $299.
Today marks a day in Apple’s history. The Big Red carrier, Verizon Wireless, has after talks dating back to 2008, landed the worlds most popular smartphone on their network, the iPhone 4. A version that is described as being identical to AT&T’s, besides the CDMA sans-4G connection, will go up for sale on February 10th starting at $200.
With CES ending Samsung seems to be packing up and getting ready for the next big event: Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona Spain.
The lightning fast rumored HTC ThunderBolt appears to be confirmed by way of a full page ad in none other than Rolling Stone magazine. This is HTC’s first LTE phone period, and it’s headed to Verizon. HTC Mecha and Droid Incredible HD names were floating around, but it seems ThunderBolt is it and its an electric choice considering its pushing the fastest data around.
The tablet market has really started to heat up this year, but Archos has been doing this kind of thing for years already. Trying to remind you of its pedigree while still offering something new and exciting is the Archos 70 Internet tablet. For starters, it runs on Google Android.
Are you finding that your mobile device doesn’t quite connect to the interwebz quite as quickly as it once did? Are you finding that you might lose a connection from time to time, even though you’re clearly in the service area? As it turns out, Google Android phones might be to blame. So to speak.
It used to be that HTC was the clear-cut leader in the smartphone arena, but many other companies are competing for the crown these days. HTC isn’t the only Android game in town and Samsung has really carved a nice-sized market share for itself with the Galaxy S line. Even more so as of recent with the introduction of the Google Nexus S. The Samsung Galaxy S is offered as the AT&T Captivate, T-Mobile Vibrant, Verizon Fascinate, Sprint Epic 4G and Rogers Captivate.
This holiday season could be all about tablets and smartphones, as those are easy buys and will guarantee a smile on the face of the gift receiver, but what about all those other tech toys out there that well, may not be so typical or expected? We’ll, we’ve put together a list of some things […]
For those who can’t wait for a Dev-Team developed jailbreak for your iPhone, iPad or iPods, then you may have looked at GreenPois0n as an alternative. The tool comes with no guarantee, and raises many questions for users looking to break their 4.1 firmware.
If everything goes according to a WSJ report that surfaced yesterday, the Apple iPhone could be available from Verizon Wireless in early 2011. Reports indicate that Apple is making a new iPhone near the end of this year, although we’ve heard this story for the past 5 years, a Verizon iPhone is looking more clear according to new information.
Infineon Technologies’ Wireless Solution business has been acquired by Intel for approximately $1.4 billion, the companies announced late last night. The move comes just weeks after Intel’s announcement to buy McAfee for $7.68 billion, while also working on a deal to acquire the Texus Instruments’ cable modem division.
This handy little MiFi-esque device can latch onto that super speedy 4G WiMAX network (if your area has it) and translate that connection into a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight devices for 4-5 hours. In effect, you can have an iPhone 4G and not just an iPhone 4, so to speak.
Whenever a company reveals a product ahead of launch date, they tell you that this may not be the final design. Such is the case with the Nintendo 3DS, but it seems that the Japanese game maker is unlikely to significantly alter the design of the 3DS before its release. As you may recall, the Nintendo 3DS made its official debut to the world at E3 in Los Angeles last month. It comes with a new analog joystick, a slightly modified take on the DS design, a couple of extra cameras, and the 3D top display.
Leading up to Computex Taipei next week, Acer decided to host a little shindig to show off its LumiRead e-book reader. This sounded like yet another Kindle alternative, but then Acer CEO Gianfranco Lanci appeared on the stage with something quite different.
Yes, the regular e-book reader was there, but the device in Lanci’s hands was anything but “just another Kindle clone.” In fact, what he held was an unannounced Acer powered Google Android tablet. Even Lanci himself called it a tablet.
Discretix expects mobile business security to be catalyzed by a few high profile incidents that will escalate and catapult industry awareness and priority. The immediate response will include mandatory encryption, and other security standards subject to regulatory compliance. A mobile phone/internet device can increase enterprise productivity, but the downside and risk must be taken into consideration. In dollar figures, RIM’s recent acquisition of Certicom weighed in at $100 million, so this downside is not trivial.
Apple’s mysterious new “magical” device has created a big stir across the world. What are we supposed to do with this thing? Is it going to replace my desktop? Probably not. How about my laptop or netbook? Still no. So what is it good for? Well, that’s the magic of it. It does many things, but it’s not here to step on anyone’s toes.
The name iPad is strangely clever. It probably took Apple an entire 5 minutes to come up with the name. It’s clearly not a notebook computer, and we already have the iBook. How about that other relative, the notepad. Ideas went around, and voila – Apple’s latest thing is the iPad. Names aside, what the heck is this thing good for anyways? What am I supposed to do with this iPad?
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a high-definition video has got to be worth millions. There are some pocket camcorders out there that are capable of recording HD video, but very few can truly measure up to their more expensive counterparts. One of the most powerful (and correspondingly expensive) consumer-level HD camcorders […]
While most of us have come to rely on online storage and USB flash drives, there is still a definite need for writable optical media. We still burn CDs and DVDs for a number of different reasons, whether they be to watch movies or to have a more cost-effective way of distributing marketing materials. In […]
The outward appearance of the fifth-generation iPod nano remains largely unchanged from the fourth-generation nano that preceded it. You still get the shiny aluminum casing, the elongated body, and the white click wheel, but there are some obvious changes as well. The display is just slightly bigger and, more notably, there’s that new camera poking […]
For everyone looking to have the James Bond experience with their cell phones, you’re about to be provided with a new Korean option. The LG GD910 watch phone isn’t the only kid on the block anymore, because we’re looking at the all-new Samsung S9110 Watch Phone. Further still, they’re saying that this is the slimmest […]
Despite the credit crisis and all the problems that seem to have afflicted just about every industry on the planet, mobile technology still managed to come forward with several fantastic innovations. This moves the industry in the right direction and offers us plenty of promise and new toys in the future. The three great innovations […]
When the first generation Apple iPhone hit the market, it was not available with any kind of carrier subsidy. As it a result, it was being sold as a premium phone at a premium price. When the second gen came around (iPhone 3G), many wireless providers around the world started to offer discounts when you […]
If you’re in the market for an iPod nano alternative and would rather stay away from the Microsoft Zune, this latest offering from iRiver is a viable and fashionable option. The all new iRiver E50 MP3 player takes on the tried and true candybar style form factor, but the choice of materials is a little […]
Most of us saw this one coming. While the current generation of Apple MacBooks is constructed of glossy plastic, the new generation announced today takes on the same aluminum shell that you find on the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. Forget about the cheap plastic; it’s all about metal, baby! Aside from the aluminum upgrade […]
Small and light. That’s exactly how I like my notebooks, so long as they have relatively user-friendly keyboards and displays. It also helps if you have an adequate battery life, because there’s no sense in having a small laptop that only lasts an hour. Toshiba is coming to the rescue for mobile professionals, because the […]
At the first major Computex Taipei 2008 press conference, TAITRA President Walter Yeh emphasized that one of the themes to this year’s trade show was WiMAX. As you may or may not know, this 4G technology is supposed to provide the same (or even faster) level of performance as WiFi, but in more of a […]
Some people are willing to dish out the premium for a MacBook Air. Some of those are even more generous, willing to fork out the $1300 premium that comes attached to the SSD upgrade for the aforementioned Air. Even so, what are owners of the regular old MacBook and the more powerful MacBook Pro supposed […]
