We have seen the Sprint 4G ads for a while now, this week we started seeing T-Mobile in the mix, announcing their 4G network. Now Verizon says it will be launching its 4G LTE Network by the end of this year. Following suit with its 4G predecessors though, it will not be available to everyone in the country.more →
Digging the idea of going 4G on your mobile phone, but you’d prefer something a little different from the Taiwan-sourced HTC EVO 4G? The wait is almost over. You will soon get a Korean alternative from Sprint when it launches the much anticipated Samsung Epic 4G.more →
BeOn combines push-to-talk phones and police two-way radios for instant global communication. The push-to-talk features are similar to Nextel’s Direct Connection, but uses VoIP technology instead.

This handy little MiFi-esque device can latch onto that super speedy 4G WiMAX network (if your area has it) and translate that connection into a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight devices for 4-5 hours. In effect, you can have an iPhone 4G and not just an iPhone 4, so to speak.more →
Remember when there was such a big deal about the launch of nationwide 3G networks and how it promised all sorts of crazy wireless data speeds? We’re in the middle of a similar revolution, because America’s first 4G phone will be made available to the masses early next month. The HTC EVO 4G stays true to its name for Sprint, bring super fast 4G connectivity in the form of a touchscreen smartphone.

So, you’re on a Spring Break trip, perhaps with the iPad you managed to snag or your tried, true, trusty netbook, but you can’t seem to find a Wi-Fi hotspot anywhere. You’re desperately looking for a place to connect but there’s nothing there. Sprint and Sierra Wireless have you covered, literally.
One of the newest devices to hit the shelves is the Overdrive 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot by Sierra Wireless. Made available through Sprint, this credit card-sized device takes 3G and 4G connections and converts them into a usable Wi-Fi hotspot for up to five Wi-Fi supported gadgets.more →
Sprint’s first WiMax/4G phone is official, and it’s everything your dream smartphone could be. The HTC Evo 4G is a combination of HTC’s Touch HD2 hardware, and a bit of Sense UI Android goodness of the HTC Legend, pushing 720p HDMI output and ultimately becoming the future of portable multimedia entertainment.
The Evo will be exclusive to Sprint, with blazing fast downloads over their 4G network, it will also work on their existing 3G network, but 4G is really where its at (10 times faster than 3G). Running Android 2.1, with a beautiful 4.3-inch TFT LCD screen at 480×800 resolution, we would expect this powerful machine to support DiVX, but no official word on that just yet.more →
I remember when I first saw the Novatel MiFi device, I thought it was wonderful, the ability to pop in a SIM card your 3G provider packed in your phone – creating a Wi-Fi hotspot for nearby devices. Sure the data bills could get steep, but this was before wireless tethering became “a thing.”
While I’m more inclined to use wireless tethering now, there are still many others who love the MiFi and the terrific utility that it provides.more →
In preparation for 4G services from Verizon and AT&T, 4G will be for ultra-broadband (gigabit-speed) Internet accessible devices, like the next-generation iPhone, possibly the Apple Tablet and who knows, maybe a baby Android too.more →
