Now, the carrier's trying to right the ship, and it's slowly but surely introducing a swath of new LTE markets. This week, it introduced one of its largest chunks to date... Read more...
Verizon was anything but bashful in revealing its first quarter financial numbers for 2013. Company chairman and CEO Lowell McAdam said, "Verizon is off to an excellent start in 2013," and that's hard to dispute when looking at a 15.3 percent year-over-year increase in earnings per share and a 4.2 percent jump in...

Yes, there really is a Kalamazoo, as shops in the Michigan city like to point out on touristy T-shirts (I should know, I live in the Kalamazoo area). And yes, AT&T's 4G LTE service is now available in Kalamazoo, offering residents mobile Internet speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. It's one of several cities in... Read more...

Plans, plans, plans. You know how they go. Years back, AT&T mentioned (and re-mentioned, and re-mentioned) that shared data plans were in the cards, but it took an eternity to see that come to fruition. Now, a similar tale is playing out in regard to HD Voice. Way back in 2011, AT&T confirmed that it was... Read more...

And just like that, BlackBerry's first U.S.-bound BB10 device has Verizon Wireless' support. The Z10 had yet to be announced for VZW until today, but it looks as if it'll ship to customers of that carrier just days after it arrives on AT&T's network. Starting 3/14 at 8am ET, VZW customers will be able to pre-order... Read more...
It's here -- Samsung's next big thing. After loads of pomp and circumstance, plenty of rumors, and a mega event held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, Samsung's Galaxy S 4 is a reality. It's the latest in the Galaxy legacy, but perhaps more importantly, it's the first Galaxy phone to garner Apple-like... Read more...

If there's one industry that could stand to be disrupted, it's probably the pay-TV industry, but if there's another, it's the home broadband industry. Not surprisingly, these two are often joined at the hip, offered in "bundles" by the same ISP. FreedomPop has set out to rearrange the equation, and the latest from the... Read more...
10 million is certainly no small number, and selling 10 million of anything is no small feat. And that's what LG is celebrating this weekend. Shortly after Mobile World Congress concluded, LG announced that it surpassed the 10 million mark in terms of sales with regard to its LTE smartphone lineup. For a technology that's only been on the... Read more...
It's a subtle movement, but an important one. Americans are slowly but surely growing tired of the same 'ole politics involving conventional two-year mobile contracts. New flagship phones are hitting the market every six months, but users have to wait 24 months for a discount. And, of course, getting out early results... Read more...
While the latest and greatest always piques our interest, not every device necessarily has to be a flagship product. At CES this year, Qualcomm introduced two hyper-powered Snapdragon chips for mobile devices. Now, the company is ushering in two more, albeit for lower-end products. Slotting in beneath the Snapdragon... Read more...

As process technologies shrink, more and more power (and memory) are being crammed into smaller spaces, which allows for smaller, more mobile gadgets and lifestyles. NVIDIA is certainly helping to lead that charge, today introducing its first... Read more...
