  • LG LS680 to bring Android and WiMax(?) to Sprint. CES tells all…

    A few days back we touched on Sprint and LG's exciting announcement planned for CES 2010. Oh my, what could it be? For many, a WiMax device is all but certain. The OS however was sorta kinda up in the air. WinMo or Android? Both are very well possible and probably certain at some point. For the next few days at least, Android has the nod as a new screenshot sent to BGR this morning shows an LG Android device sittin' pretty in system computers. The only thing we do know is that the $1 pla...
  • LG and Sprint to showcase new device at CES. Lotus 2 or Prada III to drop? [Update]

    What was your original impression of the LG Lotus? For those who don't remember, it was a goofy shaped "tweener" phone with a more square shaped design. Not exactly stylish in my opinion. Though many in the mobile world are no doubt in love. For you love birds I have some *almost* good news. LG and Sprint are taking the stage together at CES this year for a grand launch party centering around some new mobile device. Generally when I see the words "LG" and "Fashion" I think of the Prada li...
  • Consumer Reports reveals results to Best Carrier Service survey — AT&T gets the caboose.

    Surprised? Ya, no one is surprised. AT&T; finishing last in call quality is a given. To be fair, none of the big four carriers: Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, or AT&T; ranked above 75. Even still, more written evidence of AT&T;'s saturated and broken network is disappointing. But the real disheartening thing is AT&T;'s misguided response: We appreciate and value all customer feedback. We learn from it and it helps us serve our customers better. Without question the surest indication of custome...
  • Sprint giving up on QChat after short, year long honeymoon.

    If you're a contractor, dispatcher, or some other typical "business user", chances are you use or at least have seen Nextel/Sprint Nextel push-to-talk phones out and about your neck of the woods, Whether the phones were powered by Nextel's iDen or Sprint's "QChat" doesn't matter as they were essentially the same technology. Now some may have had a hard time deciphering between the two networks and technologies not wanting to pick the inferior network. Such pondering will no longer be required...

    While many in the tech world are tired of hearing about the back and forth antics between Verizon and AT&T;, it seems as if Verizon wants to expand their horizons and simultaneously keep their lawyers on their toes. Not content with simply being sued, Verizon appears to be starting their own legal freight train, steaming ahead at Sprint concerning their latest ads which label the competing CDMA carrier as "America's most dependable network". Now really, this lawsuit madness over commercials and...
  • T-Mobile USA looking for a new bunkmate?
    by Mike
    Posted November 20th, 2009 at 1:18 pm
    Coming last place can get old after awhile. Perhaps that's what's fueling T-Mobile's motivations to actively search for a new U.S. partner if reports from Reuters are to be believed. Currently ranked 4th out of the "Big 4" US cellular providers (Verizon Wireless, AT&T;, Sprint, & T-Mobile), T-Mobile has for some time now been trying to recoup lost ground and push itself ahead of it's rivals. Part of pushing ahead is expanding the carriers rather weak coverage nationally speaking. Such adventu...
  • OTA Android updates MIA on Sprint.
    by Mike

    One of the greatest things about modern, mobile operating systems is the ability to download updates OTA (Over the air). While the iPhone requires you to tether up (hey, 200+ meg downloads on a mobile device via cellular network is gag inducing) and RIM + carriers haven't really taken advantage of said feature in their current crop of Berries, that leaves WebOS and Android as the lone OTA updaters. Alas, it appears those rockin' the open dev OS on Sprint will have to tether up a bit longer as ...
  • No tethering on Sprint smartphones w/ everything plans?
    by Mike
    Posted October 30th, 2009 at 6:50 am
    After looking over some spec's for Sprint's 2010 lineup over at BGR, upon arriving at the very last bullet point my train of thought gets stopped dead in it's tracks. It simply states "No tethering for phones that require "Everything Plans". Essentially, that puts the kibosh on all smartphones. Pardon me if I'm over reacting, but a smartphone in supposed to be, plans included. If I'm paying for these falsely advertised "Everything/Unlimited" plans, I better sure...
  • Sprint HTC Hero leaky battery issue has a temporary work around…
    by Mike
    Posted October 16th, 2009 at 5:48 pm
    Until the Moto Sholes pops into the world, the Sprint branded HTC Hero is the coolest piece of hardware to be graced by Android. Since the launch of the device roughly one week ago, reviews both professional and amateur have been highly praising of the wonder gadget. The only monkey wrench that seems to be appearing is an apparent bug concerning an "always awake" handset after sending a text with the stock SMS app. If you think you're clean and clear because the backlight goes off you may be ...
  • Sprint HTC Hero “Google Experience” models support EV-DO Rev A. Non-Google units stuck at Rev 0? [Update]
    by Mike
    Posted October 12th, 2009 at 7:47 am
    **Update: All is well in the world again. According to HTC, the problem is actually a rouge text display problem "claiming" to be merely Rev 0 when in fact the phone can actually be in Rev A mode. Whew, crisis adverted. Happy surfing. Well this would certainly be scandalous. It appears that a bit of strangeness is running around the Android world as of the last couple of days with Sprint's HTC Hero officially being released. The problem appears to be centered around said devices manu...
  • Could the Sprint “Moment” be the T-Mobile Bigfoot?
    by Mike
    Posted October 7th, 2009 at 2:00 pm
    **Speculation alert!! I am falling hard for Android. So much so I am constantly checking the calendar to see when my contract is up on AT&T; so I can hop back over to my good 'ol friend TMO. Ever since the TMO Android road map leaked several months back, I've had my eye on the "Bigfoot" moniker. I loved the G1's approach: touchscreen and slide out qwerty, though the overall design wasn't quite my cup of tea. However, the mockup pics of the Bigfoot in the roadmaps is actually pretty nifty. ...
