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 →
So, you want a new phone with a full QWERTY keyboard. But you can’t be bothered with an expensive smartphone data plan – you just want the handset to be as affordable as possible. It seems that LG is catering to this need for both Sprint and Verizon customers.
These two new phones from LG both cater to the cheaper end of the wireless spectrum. So if you’re thinking along the lines of the LG Rumor and LG Lotus, then you’re bowling down the right alley.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 →
It looks like the Google Android OS is really starting to pick up steam, especially in the smartphone market. We’ve got the Motorola Milestone for the classy types, the Motorola Backflip for social crowd, and now we have a slightly more rugged option – the Motorola i1.
The newest Google Android phone to come out from Motorola may look like any number of other touchscreen devices, but it comes with a feature that is important to many Sprint customers: push-to-talk. I’m not big on the whole PTT thing, but there are many industry professionals and other niche customers who need that kind of functionality.more →
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!more →
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%.more →
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.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 →
When it was revealed at last year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, many said that it could be a serious competitor to the iPhone. Apple’s handset still reigns supreme, but that doesn’t mean Palm and Sprint are going to run and hide in a corner. They’re pushing out upgrades that’ll make the Palm Pre even more enticing, so they hope.
Sprint will be sending out the new WebOS 1.4 upgrade to Palm Pre owners after a community alert was dispatched revealing the news. The new OS comes with a range of improvements, but the most notable is support for a new Adobe Flash 10.1 plug-in from the Palm App Catalog.more →
You could be getting pretty excited about a new BlackBerry or maybe the HTC Hero, but Sprint has a more mainstream offering for those of you who don’t want a smartphone. The Sanyo Incognito SCP-6760 may look like a fairly standard phone, but it comes with a couple of highlights that buck the trend just […]more →
The Palm Pre hasn’t been as huge a success for Palm or for Sprint as both companies had hoped, but they’re reapproaching the market with something a little more affordable. We had caught wind of the bar-style Palm Pixi before, but it seems that Walmart is already prepared to toss it in the bargain bin. […]more →
A variation on this updated BlackBerry Curve is already available through Rogers Wireless in Canada, but now the CDMA side in the United States is getting its fair share of new berry juice too. Verizon Wireless has just announced that it will be launching the BlackBerry Curve 8530. Set to hit store shelves on November […]more →
Clearly going after the same market currently occupied by all sorts of BlackBerry devices is the newly announced Samsung SPH-i350 Intrepid. This QWERTY-packing smartphone gets powered by Windows Mobile 6.5 and it’s being destined for the shelves of Sprint, sitting right alongside the Samsung Moment and HTC Hero. Helping to attract the corporate market is […]more →
Maybe the HTC Hero isn’t your cup of tea, but you still want to get in on some Google Android action with Sprint. Maybe you’d prefer to have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard for busting out those emails and text messages. If that’s the case, you may want to take a minute to consider the newly […]more →
We all seem to know that smartphones have become virtual Swiss army knives for us, packing more and more functionality into those pocket-sized handsets. Sometimes, however, you don’t want all of those features. For times like those, you can turn to the people at Sprint, who have just ripped the camera out of the new […]more →
