Hopeful NEW Release Date of AT&T’s HTC One VX

This new phone was clearly set to be released on November 16th along with the One X. The One X got released, but there has been no word on the HTC One VX.

Nokia Lumia 920 just $50 from AT&T on Black Friday

Black Friday is almost here in the United States, and that means big savings all around. This is true even for newly launched devices like the Nokia Lumia 920. While Walmart already offers the Lumia 920 for $50, you can also pick a 920 up directly from AT&T for this low price, come Friday.

New Android Powered Galaxy Camera for $499 on AT&T

Technically, this new camera is still an Android smartphone; it has a 1.5GHz processor, a 4.8 inch top quality HD LCD display, and it’s running on Android Jellybean, with access to the Google Play store, meaning any owners of this device can still download and run apps like a usual smartphone device could.

AT&T Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X Both A Steal At Just $100

The smartphone world is becoming an increasingly crowded place, so you have to wonder, can Microsoft really compete with Windows Phone 8? While it is too early to say for sure, great marketing and aggressive pricing will certainly help if Microsoft and its partners want to win consumers over. Luckily, AT&T seems to be doing just that with the Nokia 920 and HTC 8x.

LG Optimus G coming to AT&T

While LG doesn’t build bad hardware, it is generally far from “cutting edge”. This is probably why the LG Optimus G is such refreshing change. The Optimus G has great specs and a reasonable $199.99 price tag with a two-year contract via AT&T.

AT&T May Charge Extra For Using FaceTime Over Cellular In iOS6

When it comes to using FaceTime video chat there is only one way to do it and that’s through WIFI- or at least it was the only way. Starting with iOS 6, cellular network access of FaceTime video chat will now be enabled, although it sounds like AT&T is planning on controlling the use of the service and may likely require an additional charge to enable it, at least according to 9to5Mac.

T-Mobile Takes A Jab At AT&T In It’s Latest Commercial

Just a little less than a half-year ago now, AT&T and T-Mobile’s merger fell through, and the struggling T-Mobile was left on its own, with no choice but to pick up the pieces and attempt to rebuild what it had lost in the last few years. Now it seems that T-Mobile’s Carly has gone from pretty pink dresses to a feminine biker in the newest commercial take that uses motorcycles as visual aids to demonstrate how fast T-Mobile’s 4G is versus the current AT&T standard.
