    This topic, while being discussed many times every year is still of interest because how segregated a market it creates.  Whether your a GSM junkie or CDMA fanboy, when ever the topic of GSM vs. CDMA come up you can guarantee that there will be a very heated debate afterwards as both camps have fiercely loyal members.  Each camp will claim superiority and that they are a better solution for world communication.  What camp do I associate with?  I will come right out in the beginning...

    Boy Genius has received information that the 2nd generation of the T-Mobile Android phone will be released on January 26th. Without any other talk about this anywhere else its hard to take this too seriously. However, BG is pretty good at predicting things so I'll leave that up to you. Spec wise it knocks the G1 flat on its face. Some of the important upgrades are 5 megapixel camera a second VGA camera for video calls (TMO is supposed to be launching a video call service in late January...
  • Samsung Pixon becomes: Samsung T929 for T-Mobile

    The Samsung Pixon which I just talked about yesterday as being released for AT&T enjoyed a short lived exclusivity.  According to Boygenius, the FCC just passed through the T929.  "How do we all know its for T-Mobile" you ask.  The minor change in HSDPA radios from AT&T's standards to an AWS 1700Mhz hammers the nail in the coffin.  T-Mobile is the only carrier using that band in the US so its pretty easy to determine.  No other information is available yet, but as soon as I know...
  • Centennial…The new AT&T

    Now I consider myself a tech savvy person who stays current with tech stuff all kinds. However, AT&T snapping up Centennial somehow slipped right by me. I can honestly say that's the first I've heard anything about this *peeks head out of apparent bubble*. Well good news for me as I have AT&T. With the acquisition comes better coverage for At&T users in the more rural areas of the Midwest and southeast. All that has to happen now is various committees, shareholders, and other s...
  • “Tethering coming soon” says AT&T

    Chances are, by now if your even remotely tech smart and wanted to tether your iPhone to your laptop you probably have already explored the world of jailbreaking. Setting up tethering on a jailbroken iPhone is hardly a chore. With AT&T;'s delay because of fears their crappy 3g network will cave under all of the extra traffic (we all know it's true) one would ask, will anyone even pay for the most certainly overpriced tethering option from AT&T; once ts actually released? I'm sure a few tech r...
  • AT&T’s Network = Crap

    Just as we thought...the REAL reason behind no iPhone tethering plan is that their are so many iPhone users already straining AT&T;'s network that they are a bit skeptical and afraid about what could happen to the network if they allow iPhone tethering now. It puzzles me how they rip of customers and still don't have enough money to upgrade their network. Really, instead of imposing caps on usage and higher rates, fix the issue...THE NETWORK! There is light at the end of the tunnel...or at le...
  • AT&T “4g shmore g”

    Getting tires of those crawling 3g speeds and looking for more? Does the thought of 4g turn you into a stuttering fool? Well, if you're on AT&T; you'll have to stutter a little longer. AT&T; is perfectly happy with their current progress of their 3g rollout and even says they plan to get at least 2-3 more gets out of it. With Sprint launching their XOHM network 4g is startig to come into the limelight. Currently it can actually he slower than 3g but in time, tthat will change. Personally I thin...
  • T-Mobile restricting 3g data usage to 1GB a month!
    by Mike
    Posted September 23rd, 2008 at 11:13 pm
    Word is going around that T-Mobile is putting a soft cap on data usage at 1GB per billing cycle. For all of the hype T-Mobile and Google have been spewing out regarding android and all of TMO's new found 3g goodness this is truly a slap in the face. Power users will want to keep that Android device in their pockets a little more than out. To make the cap even worse, customers who go over the limit will have their bandwidth throttled down to 50kbs or less! So now it really becomes useless. I b...
