    Today's list-o-3G releases via T-Mobile is one of the shorter lists so far consisting of two lonely cities. Bellingham, WA Norwalk, CT *sinister voice*: Speed. Pure, blinding speed... Androinica > @TMobile_USA ...
  • AT&T Wireless CEO hints what we’ve known all along: iPhone exclusivity coming to an end.

    Don't come here looking for an exact date relating to the day the iPhone is set free or a new U.S. carrier you can look forward to switching to as I don't have that information. What I do have however is mounting evidence that AT&T;'s iPhone reign is nearing the final curtain via reports from the companies freshly released earnings reports and via CEO Ralph de la Vega himself. Mind you, nothing blatant was said. But the tone of his announcement can only mean good things for us: We have a le...
  • HTC Hero going Blue in 2010

    We all knew it was inevitable that AT&T; would eventually jump in on the Android game. Though I'm sure many hoped they'd be a bit more timely and original. A few of you may see AT&T; as milking the iPhone and it's publicity for all it's worth. While others may believe AT&T; was simply waiting for the right handset to launch Android with. On that note, details of an HTC Hero launch on AT&T; in early 2010 are building, leading to what we all suspected -- that AT&T; will finally launch an Android ha...
  • T-Mobile’s New York 3G network super fast. Humming along at 2+ Mbps!
    by Mike
    Posted October 15th, 2009 at 12:03 pm
    AT&T; users may be left wondering aimless around the country searching for speed of any kind, but T-Mobile customers may not wonder very long. T-Mobile U.S.A's 3G footprint while still pretty weak when compared to other big players is apparently helluva fast. Take the screenshot above for example. The shot was captured on a freshly baked Nokia N900 which Mark Guim from The Nokia Blog received as a gift after attending the Maemo Summit in Amsterdam. 2+ megs down is awesome! And that's not ev...
  • Sidekick outage a result of inside sabotage & “Dogfooding”? [Update]
    by Mike
    Posted October 14th, 2009 at 6:17 am
    **Update: Microsoft's pet unicorn works wonders as they announce that "most, if not all" customer data lost during the great Sidekick slaying of '09 is restored or soon to be. Whew! So, conspiracy or simply mechanical failure mixed with a pinch of human error? **Update 2: A word from a TechCrunch via Microsoft: We have determined that the outage was caused by a system failure that created data loss in the core database and the back-up. We rebuilt the system component by component, r...
  • Nokia Booklet 3G a waste of money, time.
    by Mike
    Posted October 13th, 2009 at 12:32 pm
    Nokia's freshly announced "Nokia Booklet 3G" may have a few ears and eyes perked. I mean, a subsidized "high end" netbook with 3G coverage surely seems like a sweet deal on paper. That is until you get all the details. After scouring over countless reviews and hands on picture galleries and videos, I've come to the simple conclusion that the Nokia Booklet 3G sucks. It's a big waste of money (as is any "netbook") at $299 up front with a $60 monthly offering going to big blue, even though it...
  • T-Mobile begs sidekick users for forgiveness. Offers gifts in return.
    by Mike
    Posted October 13th, 2009 at 5:15 am
    In case you were wondering, even though I haven't said much, ok, anything about the whole T-Mobile/Danger debacle, there are things people should see. T-Mobile's official apology and offering of gifts is one of them. The word: We are thankful for your continued patience as Microsoft/Danger continues to work on preserving platform stability and restoring all services for our Sidekick customers. We have made significant progress this past weekend, restoring services to virtually every custom...
  • iPhone decimated AT&T’s network. No. For real.
    by Mike
    Posted October 8th, 2009 at 9:05 pm
    Yes, I knock AT&T; and generally have a sick sense of fun when doing so. Though after looking at the graph I *almost* feel bad for them. That is until I remember that till this day, two years, later their network is getting worse, not better. With more and more money coming from data plans, one has to question where it's going. Think an 18-fold increase and pushing the blame off on the FCC for not giving you enough spectrum fast enough is a valid excuse? Gear Log ...
  • AT&T claims network needs “more work” before iPhone tethering can be unlocked
    by Mike
    Posted October 8th, 2009 at 9:07 am
    While such news is nothing new, AT&T; is still standing by previous statements made in regards to iPhone tethering -- that is, that the network needs further work and upgrades before such a feature can launch successfully. Other examples of needed work were seen with the delay of MMS and VoIP apps on the iPhone, though, this past month and more recently this week have seen reversals on both stalemates. Tethering still remains a locked down feature however as in plain terms, their network simply...
  • Telus and Bell to offer iPhone, 21 Mbps HSPA+
    by Gibralter
    Posted October 6th, 2009 at 5:05 am
    It  looks like the days of the iPhone monopoly are about to end in Canada as the Jesus Phone is coming to both Telus and Bell.  Until recently, Rogers was the only game in town for iPhone action. But word on the street is that the change will be announced Tuesday or Wednesday.  Conincidentally this potential release will conincide very well with the launch of Telus and Bell's launch of their new 21 Mbps HSDPA+ network. For those of you who keep track of network types and speeds, you m...
  • TMO getting Touch HD2 soon
    by Mike
    Posted October 4th, 2009 at 2:24 pm
    The Touch HD2 isn't a secret. It's a monster 4.3" display, 1GHz processor, 5mp camera toting beast. Such a device will certainly please power users with plenty of speed on tap as well as a gorgeous display to stare at. The fact that TMO was getting this monster wasn't a secret. Neither was the *soon* release date that is sure to be approaching. What better evidence of an impending release than pictures of the device of lust on in-store computer systems? As you can see, this little gem abov...
  • Apple looking to lock down future products even more? Seeking new patents to lock down devices.
    by Mike
    Posted October 2nd, 2009 at 8:39 am
    Apple has long been known for their closed ecosystem that their products live within. While it has some major pluses such as tight integration among products being a top feature, 3rd party support and "outside" services are greatly restricted. Along these lines, the App Store follows this iron grip approach that Apple has become known for. Even still, the App Store is the undisputed champ when it comes to mobile application market. Though, the closed ecosystem is starting to show it's true c...
