NVIDIA Icera modem certified for AT&T: quad-core LTE incoming

One of the more frustrating trends in the world of high-end Android phones as of late has been the somewhat slow adoption of quad-core processors like NVIDIA's Tegra 3 on speedy LTE networks. Up to now we've seen major phones like the HTC One X "settle" for a dual-core design when debuting on LTE carriers, simply because the standards for the combination of SoC and radio weren't ready yet. Today NVIDIA has announced that its Icera radio module has been certified for use with AT&T's LTE bands.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus 4.0.4 update available for download now

We reported a rumor on Monday that Verizon was preparing a long, long overdue Android 4.0.4 update for the Galaxy Nexus, which has been officially stuck on 4.0.2 since it's release.

Stock Galaxy Nexus users, get it now, before Verizon decides that up-to-date software isn't appropriate.

T-Mobile (Huawei) Prism on sale now for $20

Need an Android phone for not much dough? Live in a reliable T-Mobile 3G area? Then you might want to consider the "T-Mobile" Prism, Huawei's latest de-branded device for the American carrier. The Prism is low-end in every sense of the word, but that doesn't necessarily mean bad - and the low-end is moving forward nearly as fast as flagship devices are. The biggest improvement here is the 3.5-inch 480x320 touchscreen, markedly larger and sharper than the 3.2-inch screens that typify the category.

What to do with your Verizon unlimited data plan

Like a few of you, I was dismayed to hear last week that Verizon would be phasing out its customers who were "grandfathered" into unlimited data plans by forcing them to adopt the new shared data plans this summer. I've been an unlimited customer for years, and when I lived out in the country the tethering plan saved me around a thousand dollars a year in overage fees I'd otherwise have been paying. "Blow this for a game of soldiers," said I, "they can have my unlimited data when they take it from my cold, dead hands!"
