3G Network from AT&T Will Boast 20Mbps Speeds Next Year

Even though the 3G network currently offered by AT&T is a serious improvement over EDGE speeds, it’s not nearly as fast as some of the other HSDPA networks in Europe and Asia. That may soon change, because we hear that AT&T plans on doing the HSUPA upgrade to its 3G network later this year, effectively […]

Is AT&T Working on a Skype Competitor?

3G iPhone Will Cost As Little as $199 From AT&T

As I’m sure you already know, when you waltz into an Apple store or an AT&T Store to grab an Apple iPhone, they don’t offer you any sort of discount for locking down to a new contract with the circling blue globe of a service provider. A rumor has now surfaced that AT&T will start […]

3G iPhone to Blame for 3G BlackBerry Launch at AT&T

Here’s an interesting story for you. It turns out that AT&T could be delaying the launch of a 3G BlackBerry because they don’t want it to steal the thunder from the impending launch of the 3G iPhone. As you may have heard, the current rumors are saying that a 3G version of the Apple iPhone […]

We already know that a US-friendly version of the HTC Touch Dual is coming our way, but we thought that it would only be sold as an unlocked model in stores like Best Buy.

Some details have been leaked about the upcoming mobile TV service from AT&T, including the different price packages and what they are set to include.

What’s this? A Canadian provider gets a hot new cell phone before its American counterpart? Blasphemy!

Although they may ever state so officially, it’s obvious enough that the LG […]

Pfft. Took you long enough. I kid, I kid. Samsung is joining the mobile TV party at AT&T with the announcement of the SGH-A827, otherwise known as the Samsung Access.

Proof That Sony XPERIA X1 Coming to AT&T

I’d still take this with a grain of salt, but the Sony XPERIA X1 handset on display at CeBIT is certainly showing a lot more AT&T flavoring than what an unlocked phone should be showing. This is halfway across the world from the United States, so you have to admit it’s pretty curious to find […]

Chalk this one up in the unsubstantiated rumor column for now, but there is word going around that the Nokia N95 will soon be joining the ranks of AT&T.

iPhone Users Rejoice, AT&T Goes Unlimited

We don’t like being limited. We like to gorge ourselves at all-you-can-eat buffets and our cell phone usage is no different.

AT&T is now offering a […]

Video: Sony XPERIA X1 WinMo Phone Tackles AT&T Tilt?

For me, there are two very noteworthy reasons why we should pay attention to the newly announced Sony XPERIA X1 touchscreen smartphone. First, considering that Sony usually powers its smartphones with Symbian, it’s pretty exciting to hear that they’re doing Windows Mobile too. Secondly, the sliding display curves up slightly, almost like the HTC TyTN […]

AT&T Roadmap Points Toward Business-Minded iPhone

AT&T wants to prove NASA wrong. The general public probably views the Apple iPhone as more of an entertainment-minded handset than one that is appropriate for business purposes, but AT&T is aiming to market a more business-oriented model that’ll make its way into boardrooms across the country. This internal AT&T slide encourages sales people to […]

Samsung SLM for AT&T So Skinny, Doesn’t Require Vowels

Seemingly taking a page out of Motorola’s book, the Samsung SLM is a skinny clamshell-style cell phone that will soon be available through AT&T.

Nokia is Open to Anything, Apple is Locked at AT&T

It’s pretty clear who Nokia is targeting with their latest advertising campaign, reminding consumers that their N-series smartphones are completely open.

Sony Ericsson W580i Walkman Phone Drags Feet to AT&T

Although it does feel a little cheap in your hands, the Sony Ericsson W580i is probably one of the better values out there if you’re in the market for a music phone.

AT&T Terms of Service Strip Your Freedom of Speech

Here’s a strange one for you. Apparently in the newest Terms of Service agreement written up by the suits at AT&T, your service will be terminated if you badmouth AT&T. That’s right.

AT&T 8925 Tilt Scheduled to Launch on September 30th

That’s the current rumor being passed around through the wire. The AT&T 8925, as you may already know, was bandying around as the HTC Tilt for some time.
