    Samsung announced the Focus 2 Windows Phone on May 7 and promised to make it available starting May 20 so if you want to start your week off by getting a new device you should really look into this one. There's a four-inch Super AMOLED screen with WVGA resolution, five-megapixel camera with HD 720p video recording capability, and VGA webcam for video calls and Skype but the most important bit is that the phone supports 4G LTE connectivity. You can get all this for $49.99 given that you sign a two-year contract with AT&T if you somehow don't fancy the Nokia Lumia 900 or the HTC Titan ...

    While we didn't find any deal-breaking bugs on the AT&T HTC One X with the occasion of our review, some users who grabbed their unit early experienced issues related to WiFi connectivity and speed. There were also some messaging notification problems with the phone (and not only) but HTC seems to have acted quickly with regards to the WiFi issue. "In regards to the wifi issue your running into, this is currently an issue that has been brought to our attention and we are actively working on a fix for this. We don't have an ETA on the release of the fix yet, but we do have a work around in ...

    The Samsung SCH-I535 popped up in a user agent profile recently and, while there was no indubitable proof that the phone is going to be Verizon's variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III, the specs indicate that it might be a strong possibility. As hinted, the i535 will pack a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor instead of the Exynos quad-core SoC on the International version. The findings in the user agent profile seem to be backed up by recent benchmark results found on NenaMark where the Samsung i535 popped up with the dual-core CPU and its Qualcomm Adreno 225 GPU. The carrier is clearly ...

    If you haven't noticed, AT&T has really turned up the heat in advertising its latest smartphone heavyweights. Now feeling the pressure from two other iPhone-carrying competitors, it's working hard to maintain a diversified smartphone portfolio, and it's doing a pretty good job of it, too. In line with that goal, AT&T has been heavily marketing its version of the HTC One X, as well as the Nokia Lumia 900. Of course, those of us who make the mobile industry our occupation, hobby, or obsession know the differences between these two high-end devices, but most people don't. So if you're ...

    Those of you rocking a New iPad with iOS 5.1 on it will be happy to find out that an untethered jailbreak is in the works. According to the video teaser below, by pod2g, the project is in a rather advanced stage but it's not just yet available for the public. Aside from the fact that you will see Cydia and the truckload of applications listed you will definitely notice that the Apple tablet is booting up on its own, with no help from a computer. Whether the full untethered jailbreak will be released soon or held back in order for Apple not to patch anything in iOS is yet unknown but ...

    There may still be half-a-dozen weeks to go until summer is here in full effect, but with temperatures on the way up, and days getting longer, it sure can feel like it's just around the corner. For plenty of us, our thoughts are already drifting towards vacation-time, and if you're living in the Northeastern US, that can mean taking a trip down to the shore. Alongside beach blankets, coolers, and bodyboards, you can bet we'll be packing our smartphones and tablets, as well. If you're a Verizon subscriber, we've got some news that should make your vacation plans a little bit sweeter, with ...

    There were some discussions regarding HTC's support (or lack of) for the One X on AT&T in terms of the company not unlocking the bootloader of the American version but now the device has been unofficially rooted by the community. While you will still not get access to the bootloader, at least you will now be able to have root access on your phone for all those mods waiting to be applied. It's still something to help you get through the waiting for custom ROMs and whatnot. If root is something you need to have on your AT&T (and not only) HTC One X and you understand the risks, head over to ...

    Regardless if you have an international HTC One X or its U.S. variant on AT&T, you might be among the unlucky few to have messaging notification problems. Seems like the bug doesn't notify you at all of an incoming text and the only way to see if you have a new SMS is by going into the messaging application. HTC is reportedly aware of the issue which is affecting a "very small number" of owners for both the international version and the AT&T variant. The Taiwanese phone maker already has an update in the works which is supposed to fix this issue but a timeframe for the roll-out process is ...

    The 2.11.605.19 update for the HTC Thunderbolt on Verizon was leaked almost one month ago, bringing new radios and fixes, but unfortunately no trace of Ice Cream Sandwich. Still, the phone will receive Android 4.0 sometime in the future! Until then, the documents regarding the 2.11.605.19 refresh have been posted online which means that the roll-out process should start in a matter of weeks. According to the changelog, it brings improved data connectivity, improved device stability, improvements to the mail application as well as other fixes which you can see in the screenshot above. ...

    Before you get your hopes up, take a second to consider the fact that the ad we're about to tell you might be wrong. That being said, according to the Google ad above the Samsung Galaxy S III will land on Canada's Rogers with its quad-core Exynos processor and LTE capability. This could be interesting since we've been hearing about both Verizon's and Sprint's upcoming Galaxy S III variants being equipped with Snapdragon S4 SoCs. If this does indeed turn out to be true then there might be a hope for the AT&T variant which basically uses the same LTE bands -- while U.S. CDMA carriers might ...

    We first heard of the Samsung SPH-L300 LTE for Sprint a couple of days ago when, thanks to User Agent Profiles, we found out that it will be a mid-range device with LTE capability. The image above claims to be the L300, with interesting buttons at the bottom -- reportedly fake metal -- and a huge bezel at the top. That aside we can only tell you for sure that it will feature NFC, as reported. The SPH-L300 is expected to sport a WVGA resolution screen, 1080p-capable five-megapixel camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 SoC is, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 1.3-megapixel ...

    At the CTIA expo in New Orleans this afternoon, the CEOs from Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile all gathered together for a roundtable discussion to talk about about wireless data, LTE, and what innovations we'll be seeing next. Verizon's Dan Mead took the stage first, where he talked about his company's perception of a coming spectrum crunch. By Mead's estimates, Verizon subscribers will be demanding more wireless data than the company can provide by sometime in 2014. Dan Hesse from Sprint followed Mead, discussing the need to improve the reputation of carriers in the eyes of consumers. ...

    A cursory look at the state of cellular technologies in the US would give one the impression that WiMAX is on its way out. After all, Sprint has finally caught LTE fever and has already transitioned from releasing new WiMAX-enabled handsets to those with LTE radios, even in advance of its own network's availability. That's not to say that the sun has set on WiMAX entirely, and as Sprint backs away from it, Virgin Mobile is more than ready to step forward and embrace the 4G system. Virgin will kick things off with WiMAX on May 31, as it begins sales of its first 4G smartphone, the HTC EVO V ...

    Having already sold both previous Galaxy S handsets from Samsung (as the QWERTY-equipped Epic 4G and keyboard-less Epic 4G Touch), it's no surprise that Sprint will also be stocking the third iteration of this popular device, the Galaxy S III. Thanks to the device's user agent profile, we've been able to gather a few of the important details on the next Galaxy to hit the Now Network. As you'd expect, most of the specs on the LTE-capable SPH-L710 are identical to those on the global version (GT-I9300), with one significant exception: like the Galaxy S III destined for Verizon, Sprint's ...

    Samsung's Galaxy Nexus was one of the first handsets capable of surfing Sprint's upcoming LTE network, but as a flagship device, it's priced out of the budget of many smartphone customers. Now, thanks to a user agent profile, we've learned some details on what should be a more modestly-priced, LTE-capable phone for Sprint: the Samsung SPH-L300. With a model number significantly lower than the Galaxy Nexus' SPH-L700, we'd expect the Ice Cream Sandwich-powered (4.0.4) L300 to be more of an entry-level or mid-range device, and the specs seem to bear that out -- for the most part. While its ...
