Clear Launches 4G in NYC, and Five Other Markets, Phones Coming in Mid-December

Clear Launches 4G in NYC, and Five Other Markets, Phones Coming in Mid-December

While Verizon is promising to bring it’s 4G to several markets by the end of the year, Clear has many cities lit up already, recently adding the biggest US city to it’s network.

Yesterday at Bryant Park, Clear held a ceremonial cutting of a threaded ethernet cable to signal the launch of it’s New York City store and 4G coverage in the city. The coverage means that Sprint phones like the Evo 4G and the Epic 4G will now work in the city. The coverage bleeds over into New Jersey, extending as far as New Brunswick.

For those outside of New York City, Clear and Sprint have brought 4G to five other cities today. Those cities are: Hartford, CT; New Haven, CT; New Brunswick, NJ; Trenton, NJ; and Tampa, FL. It’s still a small step, but not an insignificant one. {BGR}

Samsung Galaxy Tab Coming To All Major US Carriers

Samsung Galaxy Tab Coming To All Major US Carriers

The Samsung Galaxy Tab officially debuted a few weeks ago in Berlin at IFA, and now it has finally been announced for American release. The US version is a bit different than the European offering in terms of features, but the tablet is essentially the same.

The main difference between the US and European is that the US version of the Galaxy Tab loses the voice functionality that can be found in the European versions.

AT&T v. Verizon v. T-Mobile v. Sprint: the Smartphone Network Comparison

AT&T v. Verizon v. T-Mobile v. Sprint: the Smartphone Network Comparison

With the new iPhone 4, the EVO 4G, Droid X, and Samsung Galaxy S among other still-great phones like the Google Nexus One, deciding can be tough. Sure, each phone has theta own strong points, but there’s also the pricing to consider. Comparing the phones themselves is more of a personal choice, whether you personally like the design of the phone, feature set, or the OS (though most will likely be Android, maybe one or two BlackBerry and one iOS).

First, there’s all the main carriers: AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon. AT&T and T-Mobile are both GSM networks so the phones will work outside of the US, but . Sprint and Verizon, however, will not work outside of the US, but have 3G across their entire network.

iPhone 4 vs. Verizon Droid Incredible vs. Sprint Evo 4G: a Feature by Feature Comparison

So now that rumors of a Verizon iPhone have been put to rest – at least for the time being, how does the iPhone 4 compare to the closest competitor on Verizon – the Android powered Droid Incredible? We put together a quick rundown of those two, and threw in Sprint’s Evo 4G (which has reportedly been flying off the shelves) for good measure.

V CAST is Coming To Verizon Droid Phones on June 7th

V CAST is Coming To Verizon Droid Phones on June 7th

Verizon has been seeing well-deserved success with it’s Droid smartphones, so much so that sales and a screen shortage have been keeping the Droid Incredible unavailable essentially since it’s launch. That’s been without Verizon’s special V CAST service which it puts on just about every other phone.

On Monday, June 7, that will change and Android users on Verizon will be able to enjoy the on-demand TV shows that other Verizon customers enjoy. Of course, like other Verizon customers, Droid phone users will have to pay extra for V CAST. The service will cost them $3 per day or $10 a month depending on how they wish to use the service, if at all. {Electronista}

PC Mag Tests 3G Networks, Finds AT&T The Fastest

PC Mag Tests 3G Networks, Finds AT&T The Fastest

With the EVO 4G finally here, and the new iPhone being announced shortly, as well as great smartphones on T-Mobile and Verizon, choosing a new phone can be tough. Price and voice coverage are always something to consider, but data speeds are quickly becoming important as well. Every carrier claims to have fast speed, but PC Mag decided to test which is the fastest overall.

After thousands of tests in 18 cities, the test came back with the almost surprising conclusion that AT&T is the fastest network out there right now. The iPhone carrier came out as the fastest in all areas of the US aside from the Northeast. It is worth noting that technically, Sprint’s 4G network was the fastest that was tested, but it was only available in 9 out of 18 cities tested so it wasn’t counted. {PC Mag}
