On January 8th, just a mere three days away, it seems that a new tablet from Pantech will be hitting the AT&T network.
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.
Amid the concerns of the anti-trust claim AT&T completely withdrew its application for approval with the FCC, stating that they wished to focus all their efforts into the Department of Justice case first.
A video has appeared on YouTube that apparently shows how you can unlock the iPhone 4S from AT&T and use it with T-Mobile USA… or any GSM carrier for that matter.
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.
This Sunday, September 18th, AT&T will officially offer LTE service to the first five launch markets (Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio). In what we could call a “beta” launch for several weeks now, AT&T has still yet to launch a compatible LTE smartphone. The HTC tablet, USB data sticks, and the Elevate 4G mobile hotspot will work on the new high-speed network.
I’m not at all convinced that the updated platform will somehow skyrocket RIM out of its current woes, but I guess it can’t hurt that much either. BlackBerry OS 7 is just around the corner and both AT&T and Sprint want to be the first ones to offer the American public a taste of the new operating system… so, they’ve announced their upcoming BB7 phones.
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.
Let’s forget for a moment what it really means to have a 4G network and just go with AT&T’s FauxG definition. The wireless carrier says that its HSUPA network offers 4G speeds. Fine. However, it’s not allowing any of its devices to access said network.
Late yesterday, news broke out that AT&T is going to acquire T-Mobile. This is still pending the approval of the FCC and other governing bodies, but if it does indeed go ahead, it has to be the biggest deal in American cellular phone history. After all, it will create for a virtual duopology: the new amalgamated AT&T/T-Mobile combo will compete primarily against Verizon, leaving Sprint way in the background.
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.
The whole debate on what really consistutes true 4G technology has been argued ad nauseum, so I’m not going to get into that. It gets even worse with the HTC Inspire 4G with AT&T, though. That’s because it doesn’t even make use of AT&T’s so-called 4G network.
The media darling of CES is almost ready for public consumption. It has now been confirmed by Big Blue that the Motorola ATRIX 4G will be made available through the usual retail channels starting on February 22nd. The price has been set at $199.99 on the usual two-year contract. That’s a little more than earlier rumors pointing toward a $150 price point.
If you’ve been itching to get your hands on an Apple iPad but you want to latch onto the “can you hear me now” network for wireless surfing, it looks like you’re in luck. Not only is Verizon going to start selling the Apple tablet; it’s going to bundle it with some MiFi action to boot.
In addition to the flagship Samsung Omnia 7 Windows Phone 7 smartphone, AT&T will be offering up the HTC Surround, and LG Quantum. CEO Ralph de la Vega calls them “game changers.” That’s exciting and all with the Windows Phone 7 floodgates now open, but we’ll just have to wait and see them first hand before we start “changing” anything.
Windows Phone 7 is a pretty big deal for the boys and girls in Redmond, Washington. Windows Mobile hasn’t exactly been the most popular of mobile platforms, so WP7 could represent quite the revival for Microsoft. When is that going to happen? For AT&T folks, one of the biggest dates to circle is November 8th.
The Android family at AT&T just welcomed three new members. Announced at CTIA, the Motorola Bravo, Flipout and Flipside are all making their way over to big blue to sit on the same shelf alongside the Apple iPhone 4. If you’re looking for some more Android action, AT&T wants to have you covered.
Motorola’s Flipside, an Android 2.1 smartphone skinned with MOTOBLUR is heading to AT&T. Confusingly due to Motorola’s naming conventions on mobile phones, the Flipside does not flip at all like we would expect it to. The Backflip flips its keyboard back and forth, while the Flipside offers a more traditional slideout keyboard.
Dell today announced the availability of the Dell Aero Android smartphone from AT&T. The Aero sports a 3.5-inch (640 x 360p) capacitive multi-touch display with pinch-to-zoom functionality. Loaded with connectivity options, Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Tri-Band UMTS/HSDPA, Wi-Fi, BlueTooth and GPS.
Up until now, if you were looking at Android phones, but in on an AT&T contract your choices were pretty slim. You could go for the Motorola Backflip, or a reincarnation of Dell’s Mini 3, the Dell Aero. Today the Aria enters the Android line expanding AT&T’s offerings with another mid-level phone. The soon-to-be iPhone 4 carrier has been pretty hesitant to pick up any high-end Android smartphones that could compete with the Apple’s devices.
I’m just as tired as you are about hearing that Verizon or Sprint is going to get the iPhone 4. The rumor has been going on for quite some time. Even with the Wall Street Journal reporting on it, there hasn’t been a whole lot to back that up, until now. What AT&T is calling “another very exciting day for customers,” could be a ploy to lock you in to another contract. With the iPhone 4 release, new plans from the exclusive carrier were announced offering current iPhone owners the option to upgrade early; the clincher, you are with them for another 2 years.
Ever since the original Apple iPhone launched way back in 2007, thousands of customers have complained about how poor the network performance was with the iPhone. AT&T’s exclusivity over Americans gave them little choice but to put up with it or get another phone.
Could the shackles be broken? If the rumors of a CDMA-equipped iPhone destined for Verizon Wireless, why would Apple and AT&T be continuing the a relationship by working closely with Apple to rectify the network issues.
It looks like AT&T is expanding their lineup again. Already with the prized and coveted iPhone, the new Palm phones from earlier today, and joining the family is a new Android phone called the Dell Aero. Looks familiar doesn’t it? That’s because it’s basically the same handset as the Dell Mini 3 that has been on sale in China for a little while now and we suspected back in January headed this way. The critical difference – aside from the clear language alterations – is that the phone is branded as the Dell Aero, and no, you won’t be seeing this on 7-11 shelves.
AT&T plans to offer the Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus to their network of 80 million customers. This will expand AT&T’s offering of available smartphones to include those of the Palm webOS type, the only to hit their network.
The Palm Pre Plus has a slider keyboard and 16GB of storage. It will sell for $149.99 with a two-year plan after a $100 mail-in rebate. Palm’s Pixi Plus is their slimmest phone and it adds Wi-Fi, a full QWERTY keyboard and two color choices of black or blue (exclusive to AT&T) on for $49.99 with a two-year plan.
It’s here Canada. Google’s Nexus One phone just got released for the Canadian market and US customers on AT&T. Previous Nexus One phones would only utilize 2G and EDGE network connectivity, not the best for your Android experience, but good enough. Now Google has announced a compatible 3G version, so T-Mobile USA is no longer the only one with a Nexus offering and Canadian Rogers Wireless customers can get on board.
The phone can be purchased from Google’s phone store for $529 USD, free shipping in the USA.
Everyone seems to be jumping on the Google Android bandwagon these days, but how can they not? AT&T wants in on the action so they decided on a release date of March 7th for the Motorola Backflip. That’s less than a month away.
AT&T announced Thursday that the SlingPlayer Mobile application will be able to stream video over their 3G network, allowing users to watch video recorded at home anywhere their iPhone’s go.
Motorola has already confirmed its commitment to the Google Android platform with the highly successful Motorola Droid available through Verizon, and rumored to be released by Telus either tomorrow or the 2nd week of February as the Motorola Milestone. Well, it seems an even more interesting Android phone is coming to AT&T from Moto too.
The two have always been at battle, but with AT&T’s response so closely timed with Verizon’s, its a complete price war and we don’t know when it will stop, or what other carriers plan to join in. Undercutting each other to maintain a larger market share, both companies unlimited voice plan package prices were cut, that goes for the iPhone too.
AT&T held a press conference earlier today, announcing that they’ll have a few new additions to the family in the coming year. The newest bundles of joy to join the stable already inhabited by the Apple iPhone, BlackBerry, and Windows Mobile will take on a new look, thanks to Google Android and Palm’s webOS. They […]
You know Verizon commercials that talk about how they have a map for that? You know how Verizon says that it has far better 3G coverage than AT&T? That may be true, but it seems that AT&T still has a huge claim to fame and this claim has been unofficially confirmed by the guys at […]
The Google Android thing already has quite the strong foothold in the T-Mobile lineup thanks to a number of handsets from HTC, but it seems that the collection is going to grow with an addition from Sony Ericsson. You might remember this phone as the Rachael at one point, but it seems that Sony Ericsson […]
Here’s something we don’t see every day. Under normal circumstances, the different wireless carriers in the United States would be at each other’s throats, constantly looking for ways to lure customers away from the competition and into their fold. We’ve seen some mighty battles between Verizon and AT&T, but this action has escalated in recent […]
This phone has taken far too long to reach the market and it’s already lost some of that initial shine even before it hit store shelves. Even so, it seems that the Garmin nuvifone G60 was worth the wait, because Mobileburn is saying that it could offer the best navigation experience on a cell phone […]
We knew that these two phones would soon be sharing shelf space with the iPhone 3GS, but it’s still good to get a formal announcement one way or another. AT&T has come forward to officially reveal the HTC PURE and the HTC Tilt 2, both of which will come preloaded with Windows Mobile 6.5. If […]
As nice as the BlackBerry Bold may be, the smartphone may not fit with your personal tastes in fashion. Maybe you don’t like the jet black appearance and you want something with a little more personality. Well, Research in Motion and AT&T could have just the thing for you, because a white version of the […]
We’ve been following the sage of the Garmin nuvifone for far too long. We’ve seen a concept float around for months and months with no sign of when we’d have a physical product in our hands. It’s been a very long time coming, but the date is finally upon us. AT&T will be launching the […]
Got a hankering for a new BlackBerry Bold 9000? Maybe you want the massive touchscreen of the Samsung Eternity? While you would otherwise have to spend a fair chunk of change to get either handset, today is a very special day for all the bargain hunters in the audience. That’s because you can get your […]
Everyone else may be getting pretty excited about upcoming Google Android phones, but AT&T still knows how to kick it with the boys in Redmond. Windows Mobile 6.5 is just around the corner, but my gut instinct is telling me that the upcoming AT&T Tilt2 won’t be getting newest WinMo treatment right out of the […]
If you’re in the market for a new smartphone from AT&T, but you’re not quite so interested in subscribing to a wireless data plan, I highly suggest that you act sooner rather than later. That’s because the iPhone-touting carrier is starting a new policy early next month that will require all new smartphones to come […]
It seems like everyone wants an invite to this party, because just about everyone is picking up some variation on this possibly popular smartphone. You may already know about this Windows Mobile handset as the HTC Touch Pro2 and how it follows up on the HTC Touch Pro. Well, AT&T might be getting it too, […]
The whole SureType keyboard thing isn’t restricted to the BlackBerry Pearl, because other smartphones can just as easily map two letters to each key. Case in point, check out the latest phone to survive the FCC, the LG GW600. Powered by Windows Mobile, this smartphone seems like it will be making its way over to […]
And the deluge of new phones for AT&T continues. We already know about the new Android phones from HTC and Motorola, but those aren’t the only new phones heading to the iPhone-touting carrier. One of the more interesting phones on the horizon is the Pantech Aladdin, a vertical slider with a QWERTY keyboard. In some […]
T-Mobile’s tight grasp on the Google Android market in the United States is about to get loosened, because it seems that AT&T is picking up no fewer than two new handsets that will come powered by the Google Android platform. And they’re both sliders too. First up is the HTC Lancaster on the left, a […]
It looks like some slides have been leaked from deep within the trenches of the AT&T head office, because we’re catching our first glimpse at one of the most attractive Nokia handsets to hit the American carrier. Yes, the Nokia Mako might even be more attractive than the E71x. Take this leak for what it’s […]
I thought that the touchscreen-equipped Samsung Epix was supposed to be the third phone in the Blackjack series, but I guess I was wrong. Here is the true Samsung BlackJack III, also known as the Samsung i637 Jack from AT&T. And this is where I get slightly confused too. Over on Fido and Rogers in […]
Are you totally in love with your Apple iPhone but not at all in love with the bill that comes in the mail every month? Perhaps providing a little recession relief, it seems that AT&T may be cutting down the price for its iPhone service plans. They haven’t confirmed it yet, but AT&T is reportedly […]
