Sharp’s virtually bezel-free smartphone is officially coming to Sprint

As we expected, Sprint on Tuesday announced that it would be getting the new Sharp Aquos Crystal smartphone exclusively on its network in the United States. Although the Aquos Crystal is a mid-range phone in terms of internal hardware, the device is notable for its display, which comes the closest to being completely bezel-free of any phone we’ve ever seen.

Apple Share Price All Time High

‘Doomed’ Apple sees its stock close at an all-time high

‘Doomed’ Apple sees its stock close at an all-time high

Hey wait, wasn’t Apple supposed to have “disappeared” by now if it didn’t release the iWatch? Apparently the company didn’t the memo because as Bloomberg notes, its stock just closed trading at $100.56 on Tuesday, which is more than its previous split-adjusted all-time high of $100.30 that it hit back in 2012. All told, Apple now has a market cap approaching $600 billion, which still leaves it far ahead of top rivals Google ($397 billion market cap at the end of Tuesday’s trading) and Microsoft ($372.5 billion market cap at the end of Tuesday’s trading). If the iPhone 6 is as big a hit as many analysts predict, Apple’s stock price and market cap might have even more room to grow.

New report claims Apple might delay the iWatch until 2015

What if it turns out that the biggest reason that we haven’t see any leaked pictures of the iWatch is that the device really may not exist in any kind of final form yet? MacRumors has snagged a copy of the latest note from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who now says that he wouldn’t be surprised if Apple delayed releasing the iWatch all the way until 2015.

Why is Microsoft still shooting itself in the foot with dumb carrier exclusives?

There are days when I honestly don’t know if Microsoft even cares if Windows Phone succeeds. I bring this up because the new HTC One (M8) for Windows launched today and it’s definitely the most promising high-end Windows Phone we’ve seen released this year… and it’s also a Verizon exclusive.

This is the phone you’ve been waiting for, Windows Phone fans

While this hasn’t been a very exciting year for high-end Windows Phones so far, the Windows version of HTC’s hugely acclaimed flagship Android device figures to change that at least some.  More →

Sprint Vs. T-Mobile Network

The biggest reason Sprint’s aggressive new prices might not matter

The biggest reason Sprint’s aggressive new prices might not matter

So Sprint has finally gotten with the program by unveiling competitive new plans that double the amount of data available on family plans without raising prices a dime. If nothing else, this is certainly superior to Sprint’s previous strategy of showing us a talking hamster on TV and expecting us to give them money. However, the latest data from RootMetrics shows that there’s a still a huge obstacle to Sprint becoming relevant that has nothing to do with its pricing: Namely, the dilapidated state of its wireless network.

Sprint Family Share Pack

Sprint finally gets serious, unveils more competitive family plans

Sprint finally gets serious, unveils more competitive family plans

True to his word, new Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure on Monday unveiled some aggressive new pricing for Sprint family plans and the best part is that the word “Framily” was nowhere to be found in the official announcement. The new Sprint Family Share Pack plans — note the lack of the letter “r” in “family” — will effectively double the amount of data subscribers get for their money. So for example, the $160 per month plan that would give you 10GB of data across four lines now gives you 20GB of data. Verizon and AT&T, for comparison’s sake, still offer 10GB of data for $160 per month. More →
