You can now buy a Pocophone F1 in the United States through some eBay sellers. Just be warned of its limitations before you buy one
The 3G network still has a year and a half before it officially shuts down, but it's been whittled down to a point where Verizon won't take any more in.
Intel says it is making great strides with its latest LTE modem which will likely go into this year's new iPhones and has its eyes on the 5G prize.
The chipmaker is having great legal troubles with antitrust and licensing deals, but it has been able to pick up a new contract with Samsung.
With an epic battery in tow, great camera, reasonable horsepower and especially a QWERTY keyboard, the $500 BlackBerry KEYone looks like a bargain.
Priced at $180, and up for grabs on Amazon.com, the BLU S1 is nothing to write home about, but it does support Sprint in addition to AT&T and T-Mobile.
Echoes of the same anticompetitive behavior over CDMA and LTE patents have come out of Korean and US governments as well as Apple.
Apple and Qualcomm are locked into litigation over anti-competition accusations and failure to hold to licensing terms. The situation has gotten messy.
A big piece of LTE has come into place in the United States's biggest market for the nation's most subscribed-to mobile network.
Verizon's officially quitting its legacy CDMA network. How can we tell? The LG Exalt LTE is a flip phone. And yes, it supports VoLTE.
If it's not the first, HTC is still getting it in there with LTE-only support on Verizon. Data, messaging, voice, everything through 4G.
Samsung usually takes a few months to roll out unlocked US units in deference to its carrier partners. We may see the S8 series drag out to August.
That is according to tests done that show a large and consistent cell reception performance gap between GSM and CDMA iPhones.
The end of 2G is coming. Three and a half years, really. The 1xRTT network, which carries some voice and data traffic, is turning off.
There's more evidence that cellphone radio waves are carcinogenic, but the control group of rats in this study fared worse than the irradiated ones.
In a few easy steps, you can hack on Verizon compatibility to your unlocked HTC 10. It's made possible thanks to some developers at XDA.
After first seeing its ship date pushed back, the CDMA Nextbit Robin is now officially canceled.
LTE? Sure. All the bands. GSM? Yep, of course. But CDMA? Funny enough, that gets supported on the Xiaomi Mi 5, too.
Instead of shipping in February as hoped, unforeseen CDMA Nextbit Robin delays mean that the Verizon and Sprint-compatible model won't be ready until later.
The promised Verizon Nextbit Robin is becoming a reality, and tomorrow is your first chance to reserve a handset.
Perhaps that check mark needs to become a full-blown crosshatch. Verizon is one of the major US cell service providers using the CDMA standard instead of the more open and cross-compatible GSM standard. In short, it means that taking a non-Verizon phone to Verizon is more difficult than a similar case for AT&T or T-Mobile. Verizon had this problem when activating SIMs for the iPhone 6 and Nexus 6, both phones containing antennas for all four major US networks. It’s the same case for the Moto X Pure Edition and so far, we haven’t gotten any word of problems from the GSM [...]
So far, so good for Nextbit. Make that “goody good” as of this post because its Kickstarter fund for the Robin smartphone has attained nearly double the original goal of $500,000. And after a rousing unveiling during IFA and a further fleshing of the details at CTIA, we’re looking at an interesting development that could set this crowdfunded phone apart from others like YotaPhone, Fairphone and others. In an update to their Kickstarter page, the project team said they were looking into, but not confirming that they are building a version of Robin supporting Verizon [...]
Google looks like it could be reconsidering Nexus support for CDMA carriers, with word of a Sprint Nexus 5.
