AT&T to Buy T-Mobile, Creating Pentaband Network?

attmobile

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.

AT&T 4G A Network Of Lies

4glies

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.

Motorola Flipside Android phone announced by AT&T for $99

motorola-flipside-200

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.

att-htc-aria1

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.

AT&T to lose iPhone 4 exclusivity in 6 months?

att-iphone4-chart

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.

att-verizon

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.
