T-Mobile announced expanded network coverage, improvements in Bobsled, and a new Android smartphone.
The new Lumia 900 and HTC Titan II are solid Windows Phones, but are they really the best that we can get on Windows Phone at this time?
It was only a matter of time before we saw the release of a Windows Phone with Carl Zeiss optics and the Lumia 900 has it and LTE support for AT&T.
Sprint will be joining Verizon with a LTE version of the Ice Cream Sandwich-powered Samsung Galaxy Nexus in 2012. Sprint is rolling out LTE with over 15 handsets coming in 2012.
It looks like Windows Phone devices are finally moving to the have the latest and greatest wireless radios with the announcement of a LTE Windows Phone from AT&T and HTC.
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) kicks off in a couple of days and Kevin and I will be there on the show floor to offer some thoughts and experiences. We also have the Nokia Lumia 710 to test out.
Nokia is getting ready to launch the Lumia 710 on T-Mobile next week and I have a demo unit to check out for a while that I am comparing to the HTC Radar 4G.
SugarSync is my favorite cloud backup, access, and sync service and today launched updated Android and iOS apps to improve the service for both platforms.
Windows Phone is one of the best smartphone platforms, but not many know about it and the market share is negligible. 2012 should see millions being spent to promote the platform and devices.
Some people are a bit fired up that the older Galaxy S is not getting the ICS upgrade when the Nexus S has the same internals, but it’s fairly typical for Samsung Android updates.
T-Mobile gained $3 billion as a part of the AT&T deal fallout, along with more AWS spectrum and a long term UMTS roaming agreement.
The Verizon Galaxy Nexus was finally released and smartphone enthusiasts are picking it up this weekend. We discussed many topics about the mobile space in MoTR #256.
BBM Music is an enjoyable social music service and for a couple of weeks you can download and install the client to get four months of service for free.
I argued for the huge growth of Windows Phone in 2012 and lost this week, but I am left wondering how Microsoft and Nokia can realize serious growth of a fantastic platform. Do you have any ideas for how Windows Phone can become the 3rd platform?
The Galaxy Nexus is finally available today on Verizon, but before you succumb to the hype make sure you seriously consider the Apple iPhone 4S.
The first Nokia Windows Phone will be available on January 11th for $50. The Lumia 710 is not as attractive as the Lumia 800, but it is still a solid smartphone for the new buyer.
2011 was a very exciting year with significant growth in Android, steady progress for the iPhone, and still limited adoption of Windows Phone.
I am a strong believer in applying screen protectors to the high priced smartphones of today since we tend to throw them in our jeans pockets and carry them naked.
Google Wallet is currently only available for the Galaxy Nexus S on Sprint, but can be installed on the HSPA+ world version of the new Galaxy Nexus.
It seems there are an unlimited number of cases for the iPhone and I recently had a chance to try out four with my iPhone 4S. Do you use a case with your iPhone or do you carry it naked?
