AT&T iPhones Beat Verizon On Speed, Verizon iPhones Beat AT&T On Sales – Barely

AT&T iPhones Beat Verizon On Speed, Verizon iPhones Beat AT&T On Sales - Barely

Remember the life altering release of the iPhone on Verizon? It seems that it hasn’t altered as many lives as expected.

According to Wired, data from the Speedtest.net iPhone app shows that AT&T iPhone data transfer rates were roughly 2 times faster than those of the Verizon iPhone. When it comes to sales of that Verizon iPhone, it’s still attractive to new buyers but not in the overwhelming numbers many anticipated.

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.

Bing Comes To Android, But Only If You Have Verizon

Bing Comes To Android, But Only If You Have Verizon

With Windows Phone 7 coming before the end of the year, it’s not unreasonable to think Microsoft wouldn’t go about releasing new apps on competing platforms. That doesn’t seem to be stopping the company, however, as it has now launched a Bing app for Android.

Verizon Finally Makes The Droid 2 Official

Verizon Finally Makes The Droid 2 Official

We all knew it was coming eventually. Last year Verizon and Motorola saw great success with the release of the original Droid, which was the flagship Android phone for at least a few weeks The Droid continues to be a great success, being that it is a great phone with a lot of advertising behind it. Makes sense that there would be a follow up apart from the Droid Incredible and Droid X.

Today Verizon has finally made the Droid 2, the true successor to the Droid, official. The Droid 2 looks fairly similar to the first Droid, but has more rounded corners where the Droid had sharp angles. Gone is the bar under the screen that stayed put when the screen slides up, now it slides with the rest of the front. Also gone is the D-pad, replaced with arrow keys and an “OK” button, which make the keyboard feel more natural to some.

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.

Verizon iPhone Rumors Heat Up: When the Move is Anticipated, and Who May Want to Stick to AT&T

Verizon iPhone Rumors Heat Up: When the Move is Anticipated, and Who May Want to Stick to AT&T

The Verizon iPhone is a reality, and will be available in January 2011. That’s the rumor, at least, according to two unnamed sources in a report on Bloomberg. While AT&T has declined to comment on the murmurs, a Verizon iPhone would be attractive to many people who may be weary of enduring AT&T’s network problems.

Now unless a manufacturing change is planned, you’d still have to learn how to hold your iPhone 4 (really, why should a phone require more instruction than most newborns come with?) in that special way that doesn’t kill reception due to the poor antenna placement. But assuming Apple loosens their stance on free bumpers, or that the Help Wanted postings for antenna developers produces an actual fix instead of denials of the problem, there’s still an issue.

Motorola Droid 2 is Almost Here, the Original Goes Free

 Motorola Droid 2 is Almost Here, the Original Goes Free

Tomorrow, Verizon and Motorola are expected to launch the Droid 2 and Droid X.

The next generations expected to have twice the memory and twice the speed (thanks to a faster processor), there are lots of small changes that could make a big difference in performance. Physically, there won’t be much of a difference in the Droid and Droid 2 – the touch pad from the first version is replaced with arrow keys, so is it worth the upgrade?

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

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.
