It appears that Huawei, along with China Mobile, have taken away my last excuse for not climbing the world's highest peak, Mount Everest. Has my gym membership, equipment and flight been covered? Nope. But the phone coverage has been! As a slightly beefy tech geek Canadian that happens to hate the cold, I kid about... Read more...
We haven’t learned many specifics yet about the upcoming Motorola Moto X smartphone other than the fact that handsets sold in the U.S. will be manufactured in Texas and that some aspects (likely the back plate color and maybe some text engraving, and hopefully some specs options) of the device will be...

Rural broadband is becoming a serious issue, and it's not just the government taking notice. Private for-profit companies are as well, with Dish Network and nTelos being the latest two. Following last month's announcement of their intent to co-develop a fixed wireless broadband service, Dish and nTelos have now deployed broadband service in... Read more...
T-Mobile + MetroPCS. That's a thing now, remember? And it seems that the former is well ahead of schedule when it comes to integrating networks with the latter. A release shot out this week from T-Mobile makes clear that just six weeks after the combination was locked down, it's already working to migrate MetroPCS... Read more...
These days, being an LTE modem just isn't enough. Obviously, any LTE modem worth its salt needs an LCD screen, too. Such is the life of AT&T's Beam, a Sierra Wireless-sourced LTE modem that plugs into a laptop's USB port and shots vital signs on the embedded display. Beginning May 10th, customers can pick-up the AT&T Beam from AT&T... Read more...

As carrier networks gravitate more and more towards data (and less towards pure voice services), Sprint has announced a bolstering that'll position it to serve its future customers -- folks who will no doubt be clamoring for plenty of IP-based information.

Samsung has done an exceptional job the past few years building interest and recognition for their Galaxy-branded smartphones.

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...
Most people assume that a smaller version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be coming along shortly, but until now all we’ve really had to go on is some leaked photos and specs and the rumor mill. However, Techtastic spotted a tell-tale snippet of user agent code on Samsung’s website that further points to the Galaxy S4 Mini becoming... 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...

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...
NVIDIA has not been shy about claiming that its new Tegra 4 processor is the mobile chip to beat, and indeed, looking at the numbers, it’s hard to disagree.

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.
