Apparently, a render for the ZTE Grand S Ext has leaked out, and I must say that the naming convention for this particular smartphone is not exactly the most memorable one in the industry. It surely looks pretty decent actually, so perhaps ZTE might want to change the naming convention afterwards before an official release. What makes the ZTE Grand S Ext different from the rest of the other smartphones that the company has released so far? Apparently, it has been touted to be the first smartphone that relies on what it calls Nano Molding Technology, or NMT for short. NMT would translate to the material being made out of both metal and plastic, where they have been injected together into the mold. The end result? A more affordable shell compared to using pure metal alone, while offering a premium feel to the touch despite its half plastic composition.
With our smartphones in tow, we usually have access to data, whether it be 3G or 4G LTE, while we drive. It’s probably not the best idea to be using your phones while you drive, which is why Audi and AT&T have recently teamed up and announced a new plan in which they will be offering 4G LTE data plans to Audi’s 2015 A3 Sedan which will be released later this month.
According to the companies, this will be the first-ever in-vehicle 4G LTE connection offered in North America. The goal is to provide a way for the car’s infotainment system to be used in a similar way that one uses a smartphone, but at the same time reduce the driver’s need to look at their smartphones while they drive.
