12/14/2013, The NSA is definitely not in the good books of many people, even to the point where tech companies have already begun to sound the bell that calls for reforms in the organization itself. I am quite sure that even more people would be upset to read about what the NSA is capable of doing when it comes to our cellphone conversations. Apparently, their phone surveillance efforts do more than […]
11/23/2011, So it seems that the Galaxy Nexus is will arriving on Verizon in December although no specific date was mentioned. However if the lack of a specific date or another potential delay does not sound like news you want to hear, perhaps this might cheer you up. It seems that if you’re willing to drop the cash, gray market importers in the US have reportedly gotten their hands on some […]
11/17/2011, Countries like Japan have long been using NFC to help them in their daily lives, and not too long ago carriers in South Korea have announced that they will be offering SIM cards with NFC technology embedded into them. Now it looks like that standard will soon be adopted by some of the largest carriers in the world.
11/16/2011, AT&T enjoyed exclusivity with the iPhone for three generations worth, and now it looks like out of the four major carriers, only one carrier (T-Mobile) does not carry the iPhone. If I was AT&T, I would be worried about my customers running off to a competing carrier who may offer better rates and plans, but apparently that’s not the case with AT&T, who reports that customers remain loyal to the […]
10/19/2011, The Motorola Droid RAZR was just announced yesterday (click here for our hands on preview) and already it looks like it has cleared the FCC, which we guess isn’t a bad thing and it should be able to make that November release date that it is originally slated for. We’re guessing that most of you guys are probably well aware of the specs of the device by now, such as […]
08/31/2011, It seems that 9to5 Mac received in their inbox what appears to be a stack of iPhone 4 antennas, with the middle antenna claiming to be the iPhone 4S/5. The top casing belongs to the GSM version of the iPhone 4 thanks to the microSIM card slot. Interestingly the same SIM card slot can be found in the purported iPhone 4S’s antenna.
08/23/2011, When the iPhone was first launched, AT&T enjoyed the privilege of being the only carrier that carried Apple’s brand new handset. Several generations later, the privilege extended to Verizon who introduced the rest of America to a CDMA version of the iPhone 4. The trouble with different versions of the iPhone meant that users who were not on AT&T or Verizon would not be able to enjoy them, or users […]
07/20/2011, When the iPhone first came out, AT&T were the only carrier that offered the handsets, and thanks to an exclusive deal, they went on to be the only carrier sporting the device for the next couple of years. Verizon finally got in on the action with a CDMA version of the iPhone 4 this year, and there have been rumors that Sprint may be in the process of testing the […]
07/11/2011, We all know that the Motorola DROID 3 will be rolling out over at Verizon Wireless this Thursday, but how about the GSM crowd who might be hankering after a similar handset? Well, word has it that what seems to be a GSM-friendly model of said smartphone is already in the pipeline since something like that has hit the FCC, where it will feature solid support for GSM 850 and […]
07/11/2011, Smoke alarms are both a blessing and a curse. A curse when you’re cooking or toasting bread, and the minute your culinary creation gets slightly burnt, there goes the alarm. Jokes aside, smoke alarms can be lifesavers, notifying us in our sleep the minute smoke is detected, giving us time to quickly assess the situation and make a decision. However, there are times when you are out of the house, […]
06/30/2011, Wait a minute here – it seems that there is yet another model of the HTC EVO 3D which has just arrived at the FCC, where it will play nice with GSM bands instead. No exact idea on just where this smartphone is headed to, but we do know that the European version is currently in the final phases of preparation before it is rolled out. HTC themselves are not […]
04/05/2011, The verdict is out – well, according to the latest survey results released by ChangeWave anyway. From a sample of over 4,000 iPhone 4 users in the US, more AT&T users have reported calls dropping when compared to the iPhone 4 users on Verizon (4.8% vs. 1.8% respectively). This looks like Verizon’s CDMA network really is an improvement over AT&T’s GSM network for the iPhone 4. However it is noted […]
10/19/2010, Palm’s webOS 2.0-powered Pre 2 has already gone official and now the CDMA and GSM variants of the phone have paid a visit to the FCC. The model numbers include the P102EWW and P102UNA. In case you aren’t familiar with Palm’s naming convention, the EWW suffix indicates that it’s a CDMA unit and the UNA suffix indicates North American GSM/UMTS support. The bad news is that there doesn’t seem to […]
09/27/2010, HP hasn’t really done too much since acquiring Palm earlier this year, but hopefully we will the fruit of that purchase pretty soon. A couple of new model numbers have already surfaced, pointing towards the possibility of HP rolling out several new webOS-powered handsets. The numbers on said models do seem to indicate GSM and CDMA versions of a new Palm smartphone, leaving us guessing as to whether this could […]
