Why I’m not switching to the Verizon iPhone: Need for speed

January 10th, 2011

The image above says it all. It shows a screen capture of an actual speed test performed on an Apple iPhone 4 while connected to AT&T’s 3G network in northern New Jersey. It is not an anomaly. In fact it’s pretty standard in my home town and in the surrounding areas. Sometimes my download speed …

HTC Trophy may soon bring Windows Phone 7 to Verizon Wireless

January 6th, 2011

It wasn’t included among the stockpile of devices Verizon Wireless announced Thursday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, but Verizon may have another exciting new device in store. As we now know, Microsoft will soon release a software update for its Windows Phone 7 platform that will bring CDMA compatibility to the platform. …

BlackBerry Style 9670 review

November 8th, 2010

I have to be perfectly honest here… I was anything but excited when FedEx dropped a BlackBerry Style 9670 review unit from Sprint at my door. I have nothing against BlackBerrys and I certainly have nothing against Sprint, but the idea of reviewing what would probably end up being just another BlackBerry was not exciting …

Sprint to get 4G Mobile Hotspot from Sierra Wireless soon

December 30th, 2009

We get the feeling that early 2010 is going to be big for Sprint’s WiMax. We came by one of these training slides for a new 3G/4G mobile hotspot, precisely like the Mi-Fi, for Sprint. Like many of Sprint’s wireless data cards, this one is also going to be made by Sierra Wireless. What we’re …

BlackBerry Curve 8530 now available from Sprint

December 18th, 2009

Sprint has just added a new device to its BlackBerry family — the Curve 8530. Though this is on the low-end for BlackBerry devices, that doesn’t mean it skimps out on any features. The BlackBerry 8530 for Sprint comes with Wi-Fi, 256MB of on-board memory, support for 32GB of expandable memory and a host of …

Apple backs up AT&T's ad campaign, launches two commercials tonight

November 23rd, 2009

AT&T has been trying to pick up the pieces after Verizon launched an incredibly aggressive ad campaign against the former’s network. We’ve all seen the commercials, the lawsuits and just about everything else in between. Surprisingly, but appropriately, Apple is jumping into the mix to back up the network that is home to its iPhone …

Palm Pixi announced and soon headed to Sprint

September 9th, 2009

Hot off the heels of its last webOS phone, Palm has just announced the Pixi, or what was formerly referred to by us (apparently not as cool as Palm staffers) as the Eos, and it will be cozying up to its big brother, the Pre, on Sprint’s shores. It’s a tad bit smaller all around, …

Carrier Wars: Sprint speed test results

August 8th, 2009

It’s here, mobile fans. The moment you’ve been waiting for. The results you’ve been itching for. The numbers you’ve been clamoring for. The… Ok, you get the idea. Last week we asked Sprint subscribers to test their 3G handset speeds and show us what their carrier of choice is made of. Well the results are …

Carrier Wars: Next up, Sprint

July 31st, 2009

Welcome back to Carrier Wars, the ongoing feature where we ask our readers to post their 3G speed test results, we collect the data and dish the outcome, and then a bunch of people whine about said outcome in the comments section. So far we have AT&T clocked in with raw averages of 933kbps down/180kbps …
