AT&T Continues to Expand 4G LTE Network

clock December 14, 2012 22:58 by author Jeremy

AT&T seems to be hard at work as it continues to push its 4G LTE network out to newer areas constantly. Just in the past week alone, 12 towns have begun to receive the magical internet power that is LTE, likely causing a decrease in work/school activity and an increase in facebook statuses. The 12 recent areas are:

December 13:
Little Rock, Arkansas
Pullman, Washington
Moscow, Idaho
Hattiesburg, Mississippi
Starkville, Mississippi
Allentown, Pennsylvania
Reno, Nevada
Richmond, Virginia

December 10:
Grand Rapids, Michigan
Nashua, New Hampshire
Birmingham, Alabama
Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania

AT&T has also been pretty good about keeping their Corporate News/Press section up to date, so check out the source link below to see if an area near you has previously gotten a wireless bump.

HTC Thunderbolt and Kyocera Echo, Released March/April 17

clock March 16, 2011 01:16 by author Jeremy

Two phones that have been teased around the web for a while now are finally getting official release-statements: Verizon's HTC Thunderbolt and Sprint's Kyocera Echo. The former is going to be the first smartphone on Verizon's 4G LTE network, and will be available March 17 (just two more days!). Meanwhile, the latter smartphone will be out on April 17th (just two more days! ...oh, and a month on top of that).

What's so special about these two, you ask?

As mentioned previously, the Thunderbolt is the first 4G smartphone using Verizon's LTE network, which should provide faster download/upload speeds. The Thunderbolt will come with a 4.3" display, an 8-megapixel rear camera with 720p HD recording, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video chatting, and the latest 1GHz Snapdragon processor.

This, of course, should be a power-hog, so expect to charge your battery quite a bit. The Thunderbolt has already been delayed several times due to poor battery life, relating to issues around signal strength. These issues have been fixed, and there's even news circulating of an extended battery being offered by HTC, which will have roughly 2750mAh (almost double the phone's stock battery of 1400mAh). The phone-stand also comes back, just for your viewing pleasure.

Meanwhile, on Sprint's end, we'll be seeing the Kyocera Echo, a dual-screen smartphone that offers "simul-tasking". Consumers can use the two screens to simultaneously check their email, text message, browse the web, and more. During the Sprint event in February, they showed how the dual-screen phone could be used for gaming: The Sims was demo'ed with the top screen showing the game, and the bottom screen showing the control buttons. Alternatively, you could also converge both screens together (not physically, of course!) to use them as one large viewing apparatus. Nifty, indeed.

The smartphones of today just keep getting smarter, it seems.
