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.

T-Mobile G2 Finally Made Official With Design and Specs

T-Mobile G2 Finally Made Official With Design and Specs

For a few weeks T-Mobile has been teasing us with the impending successor to the G1, aptly named the G2. There have been leaks pointing to what the phone was, and it’s design, and now T-Mobile has finally made the phone official.

The T-Mobile G2 is a smartphone designed largely with HSPA+ (T-Mobile’s 3G network with “4G speeds”), and seems to be the only phone currently available running on the stock Android 2.2.

T-Mobile G2 HSPA Smartphone Announced

T-Mobile G2 HSPA Smartphone Announced

On a stark white page with no images, T-Mobile announced the G2, a successor to the G1 which was the first Android powered smartphone. T-Mobile sold 1 million phones within the first 6 months of an October 2008 launch. With the iPhone continuing to inspire pandemonium and flashier Android competitors from HTC and Motorola driving buzz – not to mention sales, for Verizon and Sprint, it’s high time for a flagship phone for T-Mobile.

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.

Dangerous Moves: T-Mobile Kicks the Sidekick

Dangerous Moves: T-Mobile Kicks the Sidekick

On June 30 we saw Microsoft kill it’s social network-focused phone, the Kin. The team that worked on the Kin was absorbed into Windows Phone 7. That team was what was once known as Danger, the creators of the OS for the Sidekick.

Now it looks like all phones from Danger are going the way fo the Kin, as T-Mobile has announced that as of July 2, the Sidekick 2008 and Sidekick LX will no longer be sold. The phones will be nowhere to be found at T-Mobile stores of the company’s website. The Sidekick service will remain active as long as people keep their phones, which would mean the serves would likely still be active for another 2 years, or until T-Mobile decides to convince users to switch.

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}

It’s A Droid, It’s A Phone, It’s Superphone!

It's A Droid, It's A Phone, It's Superphone!

Steve Jobs may very well be quivering in his boots – or, more likely, in his turtle neck – right about now. Google announced to the world today what happens when they and HTC (a company that makes all those Android running smartphones) come together. Answer? They make one sweet phone. The Nexus One, publicly released […]
