  • Ultra low energy consuming Bluetooth developed by Texas Instruments. Relevant?
    by Mike
    Posted October 19th, 2009 at 7:28 am
    If you find yourself in Munich tomorrow, you may want to stop by the Texas Instrument unveiling of their latest baby: the CC2540. This alphabet/number line soup's claim to fame is the fact that it takes up but a mere 6mm (squared) of space. That's tiny. Naturally, because of the utter pittance of physical size, such an object has an equally minuscule appetite. Just how meager are the feeding requirements? Try an entire year of runtime on a single, lonely button battery. Ya. That's pretty ...
  • WiFi Direct the end of Bluetooth?
    by Mike
    Posted October 14th, 2009 at 12:49 pm
    In case you've been living under a rock, WiFi Direct is the new spec that the WiFi alliance is set to start unleashing in early 2010. The technology will work much like Bluetooth currently does in allowing devices to connect to each other operating as a sort of "close range" P2P network. While new WiFi Direct devices won't start seeing official certification until 2010, older legacy devices which consist of pretty much everything to date with a WiFi chip inside will be able to take advantage ...
  • Best Buy to offer new web syncing service

    Most people know Best Buy as TV, computers, home appliance mega center but Best Buy is adding another facet to their business model: web syncing for smartphones called mIq.  It offers some pretty neat features such as 1GB of storage so one can wirelessly back up photos, contacts, calendar events, text message, call logs, voicemail and even your social networking sites (Twitter, Facebook, etc...).  Sound pretty cool so far?  It gets better. The next step mIq takes is to not only allow y...

    Want to make a call or send a text but can't because your normal AT&T; phone keeps dropping calls? *Soon* you'll be able to look no further than the Genus. A love child created between new found partners TeraStar and AT&T; are aimed at bringing expanded coverage to remote areas via satellite. The handset will allow users to "seamlessly" switch between satellite and cellular networks without hiccup. While the Genus is being marketed towards more government and utility companies, AT&T; and TeraSt...

    Lovers of the speedy wireless spectrum that belongs to T-Mobile U.S.A. have some new breathing room and grasslands to stretch their legs on. Specifically, T-Mobile customers in Columbia, Durham, Greensboro, Raleigh, and Winston-Salem, N.C. as well as Greenville, S.C., and Escondido and Oceanside, CA should be noticing greatly improved browsing speeds as well as a nifty "3G"/"H"/"U" symbol on their phone's display signifying the up tick in speeds. Even though they're a bit late to the game, it ...
  • AT&T: Data consumption soared over 5,000%
    by Mike
    Posted September 23rd, 2009 at 7:18 am
    While we pick on and criticize AT&T; like there's no tomorrow, a statement by AT&T;’s VP of Mobile Device portfolio, Mike Woodward, may cause me to cut them a tad bit of slack. According to Mr. Woodward, the past six quarters have seen the number of megabytes consumed increase by upwards of 5,000 percent. 5,000 percent people. That's insane. He goes on describing that when he started as VP of Mobile Device Portfolio, the goal was to encourage mobile data adoption. Now as you can guess the...
  • Xbox 360 wireless N adapter to cost half an arm?
    by Mike
    Posted September 23rd, 2009 at 7:06 am
    If you though Microsoft's gouging on Xbox 360 hard drives was bad, the latest rumor from rumor land has the Xbox 360's upcoming Wireless N adapter pegged at $100. $100! Can anyone say highway robbery. I understand it's a "new" product. But when you can get a normal wireless N adapter for ~$30, $100 seems like theft. Of course, if you really want N speeds you don't have any choice. Again, this hasn't been confirmed by Microsoft...yet. Instead an Ars Technica "mole" claims that this $100 ...
  • T-Mobile’s 4G plans getting a littler Clearer…
    by Mike
    Posted September 23rd, 2009 at 6:51 am
    The back and forth movement of T-Mobile USA's statements in regards to their 4G plans is enough to give most people whiplash. First they're holding off, instead employing HSPA+ as a nice speed bump along the way. Next minute they're (their parent company, Deutsche Telekom more precisely) making deals to light 4G services with Clearwire and Metro PCS. Clearwire whom has been cited saying that they needed more money to continue the rollout of 4G services, would have most of their current mone...
  • 56Mbps HSPA+ mobile speeds coming to China Huawei users
    by Mike
    Posted September 21st, 2009 at 9:29 am
    Mobile internet junkies on China Huawei's network have reason to celebrate. The arrival of 56Mbps download speeds has arrived. While here in the U.S., AT&T; brags about 7.2 Mbps speeds, Huawei is ushering in the next gen now by actually putting dollars towards their network in a timely fashion. Current users of Huawei's fourth gen and 38xx series base stations can take advantage of this new found speed with a simple software upgrade. *Super* Even more impressive and interesting however is ...

    Posted September 21st, 2009 at 7:59 am
    If you run a business small or large and rely on any form of computer network to keep you up and running, experiencing a network outage can no doubt be a crushing blow to your budget. However, just because your traditional network goes down doesn't mean you can't stay connected. A joint partnership between Wireless Logic and Teldat is bringing the UK its first SIM-enabled wireless backup service. The service is basically a failsafe for your traditional hard line service in case of a failure. ...

    Posted September 15th, 2009 at 8:20 am
    If you have a need for speed and are already growing tired of constant wait times when loading pages over the ever increasingly saturated 3G arena, Metro PCS has some news that will wet your whistle and give you a second wind to ride out the waiting game that awaits you. Come late 2010, one to several quarters behind any other U.S. cellular provider, Metro PCS is planning to launch their first LTE capable handset on their new LTE network. The dual mode CDMA/LTE handset will reportedly be from ...
