4G Speed on Trial

Behold the marketing age, one where paying close enough attention to the bureaus in charge of term definitions can earn you a higher market share and brand throne in consumers' minds around the world. Case in point: 4G speed. You and I know that the term "4G" means fast - we're told it means the fastest, the fastest in the whole world! In fact it's nothing more than a name, the speed at whose definition changes faster than its hypothetical speeds every single day of the year. This post explores the 4G matter in terms of Sprint's HSPA+ speed network and how it's working via the HTC Inspire 4G and Motorola ATRIX 4G, both of them out now.

Welcome to your first - no, second glimpse of a home screen replacement that you're going to basically flip out over - the first look you got was back when we were hanging out at Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona, Spain, at the official Google Pod where we were given a full tour.

Android in-app billing goes live

Google has launched in-app billing on the Android Market, allowing developers to offer extra levels in their games, additional services and virtual goods in their apps. The system will also enable try-and-buy, where apps can be offered free to trial and then activated in full without demanding a whole new download. As you'd expect, Google has worked with a few software vendors in advance to give a demonstration of how the in-app billing system works. Tap Tap RevengeComicsGun BrosDeer Hunter Challenge HD, WSOP3 and Dungeon Defenders: FW Deluxe have all been updated.
