Here's a cool prospect: Imagine making a call while on-the-go, and rather than have the transmission go through a tower, it instead goes through someone else's phone. This idea isn't new, but Qualcomm has the capability to make it a standard, and with LTE Direct, it hopes to accomplish that. LTE Direct has the... Read more...
Hotspots are becoming less necessary due to most smartphones these days offering tethering by default, but hardcore road warriors still appreciate having a dedicated device, with its own battery pack, to provide Internet signals to a variety of hungry gadgets.

It looks like HP has decided to take a page from the retail guidebook, as it's teasing us with some holiday-targeted product well before the holiday season could even be considered "close'. This product comes to us in the form of five notebooks, with three targeting the low-end part of the spectrum, and the other two... Read more...
It might be called the HTC Volantis, but what it's set to become is the next tablet in Google's Nexus line.

The date's been set: We're going to learn all about Apple's latest iPhone on September 9th. We discovered that date earlier this week, and without a delay, speculation around the Web ran rampant.

This week, Broadcom announced that it would exit the LTE modem market and shut down its LTE research division. The move comes less than a year after Broadcom bought Renesas' (formerly known as NEC) LTE modem -- and that purchase was supposed to give Broadcom a leg up in modem design after its own in-house LTE product...

More elbow room is being created on 4G LTE networks operated by Verizon Wireless as the wireless carrier rolls out a technology upgrade to more than 300 markets. Called XLTE, Verizon's plan is to enhance its entire 4G LTE network spread across over 500 markets with the faster service by the end of the year. Don't... Read more...
Amazon's long-awaited smartphone is finally here, and sticking to tradition, the company's named it "Fire". Many of the rumors surrounding the device over the past month have proven true, such as the four cameras at the front, and its AT&T exclusivity. Admittedly, the hardware strikes me as the least-interesting... Read more...
FreedomPop announced some big updates to its free (and almost free) mobile services. The MVNO has moved to Sprint’s LTE network to offer 4G service (and is launching commensurate handsets to take advantage of it) and is also rolling out a new $20 unlimited everything plan. The unlimited plan is notable in the... Read more...
If you've ever initiated a call on your LTE-enabled smartphone while in an LTE area, you may have noticed what happens once the call actually connects. It's no longer using LTE. That's because Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) remains a fledgling feature, barely supported anywhere in the world, and certainly not broadly in the... Read more...
The Samsung Galaxy S5 has arrived. While the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4 was a blockbuster event, the successor to the role of Samsung’s flagship phone hasn’t made nearly such an impact despite sporting strong features and specifications. The LTE-equipped Galaxy S5 has a 5.1-inch (1920x1080) display... Read more...
The FCC has approved an AT&T acquisition of Leap Wireless, which includes Cricket and all of its 4.6 million customers--but the agency did not greenlight the deal without caveats. AT&T does get all of Leap Wireless’ spectrum, networking equipment, and “other assets”, but the company will have to divest spectrum in... Read more...
After the blockbuster spectacle that was the release of the Samsung Galaxy S4, the hullabaloo over the next generation of Samsung’s flagship smartphone seems almost demure, but in any case the company announced the new Samsung Galaxy S5. The phone features a 5.1-inch (1920x1080) Super AMOLED display and a... Read more...
It was just late December when the NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 got the latest Android 4.3 update, but NVIDIA announced that the device is already being updated to Android 4.4.2 (KitKat), and there’s now an LTE version is coming, too.

Straight out of the "It's about time!" files comes an FCC filing that suggests Microsoft could soon be unveiling an LTE-equipped Surface 2 tablet, and as boring as that might sound, it holds a lot of importance. Plus, there's a couple of fun things to speculate on. For starters, let's not ignore the fact that the... Read more...
The problem is that in heavily populated areas, the shared mobile wireless bandwidth gets badly congested by all the concurrent users; the solution, allegedly, is personal cell (“pCell”) technology that’s being developed by Steve Perlman and his Artemis Networks startup. Current mobile wireless... Read more...
We got some hands-on time with Samsung’s Galaxy Note Pro and Galaxy Tab Pro tablets at CES, and the company has now stamped a date on the devices’ availability in the U.S. They’ll be available as of February 13th, but you can preorder one today. The first three models in the family are the Galaxy... Read more...
When it comes to mobile broadband speeds, Korea is doing quite well. While Sprint is boasting about 50-60Mbps that will be in five U.S. cities by the end of the year, Korea’s SK Telecom says that it already has 300Mbps LTE ready to roll. (Well, sort of.) The technology involved is a three-band aggregation, just like Sprint’s Spark... Read more...

AT&T today signed a deal with Rogers Communications to launch LTE roaming in Canada.

By and large, AT&T's LTE expansion efforts have lagged behind those put forth by Verizon Wireless. But when it all comes down, a lot of has to do with spectrum.
