Apple iOS 4.3 to push personal hotspot onto all iPhones

Aside from the obvious swap to a CDMA cellular radio, one of the other major differences between the Verizon iPhone and AT&T iPhone is the inclusion of the personal hotspot functionality. Sure, you could do the jailbreak thing to do some wireless tethering on the GSM iPhone 4, but it's so much easier when it's already in there.

No death grip problem for Verizon iPhone 4

Well, that's one way to solve antennagate: go to another carrier. As you might recall, the iPhone 4 was plagued with all sorts of "death grip" concerns when it first launched with AT&T. People said they were losing bars and dropping calls when they held the smartphone a certain way. Not so, apparently, with Verizon's version.

Checking out the Motorola Atrix 4G laptop dock

Motorola took a little bit of wind out of its own sails by letting the AT&T event reveal the Motorola Atrix 4G, but the Motorola event a few hours later let you get up close and personal with the hot new smartphone... if you could fight past the nerdgasm to get close enough, that is.

The lightning fast rumored HTC ThunderBolt appears to be confirmed by way of a full page ad in none other than Rolling Stone magazine.

AT&T agrees to pay almost $2 billion for Qualcomm FLO TV spectrum

Apparently, Qualcomm has agreed to sell the wireless spectrum it once dedicated to FLO TV for a whopping $1.925 billion. And the buyer? None other than the iPhone-touting AT&T.

Eldar Murtazin leaks AT&T-branded Nokia X7 smartphone

This Eldar guy must have a thing for a certain cell phone maker in Finland, because it seems like he is leaking a new Nokia phone every other day. He reviewed the N8 before it was released, he leaked the Nokia N9 (which may or may not be the same as the E7), and now he's leaking the X7 with AT&T branding.

Samsung Galaxy S Review

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.

Analyst predicts March 2011 launch of Verizon iPhone

Well, it's time to add some more fodder to the trough, because an analyst has indicated that Big Red is "on track" to start selling the iPhone next March, a couple months past a CES unveiling predicted by WSJ.

On Thursday August 13th the Dell Streak will be available for pre-order from AT&T, the price is $300 and it will run on an undisclosed version of Google Android. Since it's being sold through AT&T, there are strings attached to that price, a 2-year contract. Without contract expect to pay $550.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 finally landing on AT&T next week

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 has been available in Canada for a few months already, so what's all the hold up with a U.S. release? AT&T has officially announced that customers will be able to get their hands on the Android phone starting August 15th. That's under a week away.

T-Mobile Vibrant (Samsung Galaxy S) coming this week

Looking for a hot new Android phone to go with your T-Mobile service? It has now been confirmed that T-Mo will indeed be launching its new Samsung Vibrant smartphone this Thursday. You might already know it as the Samsung Galaxy S; this is just their variant on the hardware. This beats AT&T to the punch by a few days, since the Captivate (AT&T's take on the Galaxy S) won't be hitting store shelves for a little while after that. It's also bodes well for T-Mobile that there are shortages of the HTC EVO 4G (Sprint) and the HTC Droid Incredible (Verizon). I hope for T-Mobile's sake that they have a good supply of these phones ready to go.

Verizon iPhone coming January 2011, says analyst

Just about as popular as the iPhone 4G rumors, inevitably leading to the release of the iPhone 4, the Verizon iPhone reports continue; this time it’s coming from Bloomberg. On the TV show “Street Smart”, Rodman & Renshaw senior technology analyst Ashok Kumar explains how the AT&T hold on Apple’s smartphone will be ending this year, giving way for Verizon Wireless to offer the iPhone in the U.S. this January 2011.

Apple sells 600,000 iPhone 4 units on launch day

AT&T put the breaks on pre-orders for the Apple iPhone 4 yesterday. Apple managed to sell 600,000 units on launch day demolishing iPhone 3GS pre-orders ten fold. Due to the large number of people rushing the websites, a few things got bogged down and many users couldn’t get their pre-order in. So it’s possible Apple could have broken the 1 million mark if they were able to handle the traffic.

AT&T slams hacker group responsible for “malicious” attack

The group replied last week saying it exposed the security flaw to inform and protect consumers, and refused to make public their discoveries until AT&T repaired the issue. In response to the FBI’s claim that they’ve begun investigating the incident, the hacker organization said simply, “We did not try to hack your iPads, your iPads are safer now because of us”. They also noted that all findings have been destroyed by both the hackers and Gawker Media’s Valleywag website who received the data from them.

Sprint rumored to get iPhone HD in a matter of weeks

Over the last year or so rumors have been running rampant over the release of a Verizon iPhone. AT&T’s exclusivity contract with Apple is ending, several carriers are looking to get the world’s most popular smartphone in their stores and on their network. While Verizon is still most likely to get the iPhone 4G (4th generation), another popular carrier also looks promising; Sprint. This comes from a series of emails between a Best Buy Employee and The Tech Update. The email states that Best Buy will be carrying a Sprint iPhone beginning in June. The source or store that the employee works at will obviously not reveal themselves, as they probably don't want to end up losing their job and getting their house raided by big bro..er Apple.

Review: HTC DROID Incredible is the iPhone killer

This week, I've had the opportunity to spend some time with the new DROID Incredible by HTC. Being an iPhone user myself, enslaved by AT&T, I look at the Droid (and Verizon) through the eyes of a newbie to the whole experience. From the moment I took this little Incredible piece of tech out of the box, I was blown away at what life could be like without an iPhone....not bad.

iPad international roaming data still pricey with AT&T

Now that you have the Apple iPad in your hands, it can feel difficult to leave home without it. What if you're planning a trip overseas or even to Canada or Mexico? Well, AT&T has you covered with some iPad data packs, but don't expect them to be cheap. In fact, the pricing for the iPad international roaming data packs are just as expensive as their iPhone counterparts. There are some differences with these "Data Global Add-On" packs.

Garmin-Asus A10 touchscreen smartphone runs Android

The standalone GPS market isn't nearly as hot as it has been in years past, so many people are moving toward "convergence" devices that can do GPS and more. Garmin is aggressively expanding its smartphone line with the new Garmin-Asus A10 in response to this new trend. This follows up on the nuvifone from AT&T and the Garminfone with T-Mobile. A good move on Garmin's part, I'd say, since they can continue to sell hardware to the growing navigation-centric smartphone market.

Verizon not getting Google Nexus One, HTC Incredible subbed in

For a while there, we were told that a version of the Google Nexus One would be devised to work with the Verizon Wireless network. That made sense, since the two GSM versions of the Nexus One only worked with AT&T and T-Mobile. Well, as it turns out, Verizon isn't getting a Nexus One after all. That's not to say that Verizon isn't getting a snappy Android phone, however. In an official statement from Google, they said that they "won't be selling a Nexus One with Verizon," but they are encouraging customers to buy the Droid Incredible by HTC instead.

BlackBerry Pearl 9100 officially announced as BlackBerry Pearl 3G

There's no flip version yet of the Pearl 3G, though I suspect RIM will do that at some point too. Announced at the WES conference this week, the BlackBerry Pearl 3G is doing something a little different compared to previous Pearl phones too. Yeah, there's a version with the expected SureType keyboard, but there's another version with a standard T9 numeric keypad too. I guess people want bigger buttons; me, I'd rather have a real QWERTY keyboard. Then again, I guess QWERTY fans are more inclined to nab a Curve or a BlackBerry Bold instead. The rumor of a QWERTY Pearl is still out there, so it could happen. Rounding out the specs for the Pearl 3G are triband HSDPA, 802.11n Wi-Fi support, 3.2MP camera, microSD expansion, and a 360 x 400 display. RIM will be offering in several "lustrous colors" including black and white. The expectation is that versions will be made available (in May) for both AT&T and T-Mobile with the appropriate 3G bands in to, as well as Rogers and Telus in Canada.

Garminfone with Android destined for T-Mobile USA

As it turns out, AT&T isn't the only one doing the smartphone thing with Garmin. T-Mobile USA is getting a piece of that navigation pie too with the announcement of the new Garminfone. It's being offered exclusively through T-Mobile later this Spring. To avoid any confusion with the Garmin smartphone being sold through AT&T, T-Mobile has decided that its version will be called the Garminfone rather than the nuvifone. This also allows them to say that it is exclusive to their stable.

AT&T launches Pantech Link QWERTY phone for ten bucks

You don't see too many Pantech phones around these parts anymore, but the Korean electronics maker is still around and it's got a new handset for all the budget-minded texters in the audience. It has just been announced that the Pantech Link will be heading to AT&T and it's going to be a bargain. While its outward appearance may lead you to believe that it's a smartphone of some kind, the Pantech Link is probably better classified as a feature or messaging phone. There's a full QWERTY keyboard on this "quick messaging phone" and it measures under 10mm in thickness.

Google Nexus One now official for Telus and Bell

Have you been hankering for the coolest Google Android phone on the block but you were assuming that you were not on a compatible network? For my fellow Canadians, Google has some great news. As you may recall, Google announced a regular HSDPA-compatible version of the Nexus One a short while ago. They said that it would play friendly with Rogers Wireless in Canada and AT&T in the United States, opening up some possibilities. As it turns out, the 3G-ness is good with Telus and Bell too.

Sprint wants to make your iPhone 4G, maybe

Enjoying a nice evening in front of the TV last night, a Sprint commercial came on touting the ability to "Make Your iPhone 4G". Being a bit of an iWhatever junkie and a slave to AT&T, I was excited to say the least. I instantly went to their company site for more information. Once there, Sprint promises to "Turbo charge your productivity with an even faster Mobile Broadband connection". What black magic would allow you to escape the clutches of your 3G carrier? Sprint's Overdrive 4G mobile hotspot comes to the rescue!

Who do you love? T-Mobile and Verizon top the customer service list

According to Vocal Laboratories, a research firm who conducts customer service quality information, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless are at the top of the list when it comes to customer service and satisfaction. The study did not reflect network quality, but if customers aren't happy with the network how could they be happy with the “customer service?” The study found that 66% of Verizon Wireless customers were “Very Satisfied”, T-Mobile met the 65% mark, 63% for AT&T and Sprint coming in at 59%.

Verizon creating largest 4G LTE network, iPhone on the horizon?

With the "there's a map for that" ad campaign, Verizon is proudly proclaiming that its 3G network offers much more coverage than AT&T's 3G network. The trouble with this comparison is that AT&T's network is typically faster than the Verizon equivalent. That might change very soon. It won't happen with the battle between Verizon's EVDO and AT&T's HSDPA, however. Instead, the battle is being taken to the fourth generation. Verizon aims to have both the largest and the fastest network in the nation when it launches its LTE network. That's 4G, folks.

Google Nexus One headed to Sprint

Sprint today announced they will be a carrier of the Google Nexus One smartphone. T-Mobile was originally the only carrier to offer an “official” term plan for the Nexus phone, but after checking up on Google's phone website T-Mobile's offering is no longer available. A “Sorry, this item is temporarily out of stock.” on the $179 two year contract plan is nothing less than a coincidence. Sprint won't be the new and only company to carry the Nexus One, yesterday's announcement told us about Google's plan to send the phone to AT&T and Rogers Wireless in Canada, but with sales slumping there's not much of possibility for a shortage on supply.

Slay vampire power with AT&T ZERO Charger

Today may be St. Patrick's Day and there will be a lot of people out there consuming green-colored beer, but there is another meaning to "going green" with AT&T. It involves slaying some vampires and saving the environment, it seems, with the upcoming AT&T ZERO Charger. As you may already know, devices plugged into the wall continue to draw electricity even when they are not in use. This is true of televisions, for instance, since they are in standby mode.

Skype on the iPhone with crystal clear calling over 3G coming ‘really soon’

Skype has a new iPhone app on the backburner and were told it will be on the iTunes app store "realy soon." The Skype app will take a nice chunk of change off your monthly mobile phone bill by connecting you with your Skype contacts and utilizing the Skype Out services which come in various packages ranging from low per-minute rates, unlimited local, national and global.

Google Voice mobile sneaks back on to iPhone

Google Voice mobile web app for iPhone OS 3.0+ and Palm Web OS was launched today, regardless of Apple's efforts to keep the phone and SMS software off their device.

Truphone cuts mobile roaming rates by 90%: GSM phones only

Making calls on your mobile while roaming in another country is usually for emergencies only, otherwise you will be hit with a hefty bill from your carrier. Truphone is cutting that cost by more than 90% with their new global mobile phone service dubbed: Local Anywhere.
