T-Mobile is dangerously close to launching its 4G LTE network, and today, some users in Kansas City are reporting that the company has at least partially flipped the switch. One T-Mobile user is claiming on the XDA Developers Forum that he now has access to the company's 4G LTE network, putting it through Speed Test and showing the outcome to the world. The results will probably be underwhelming to those who are used to blazing fast 4G LTE, but there's a pretty good reason for that.
T-Mobile earlier in the month and that was followed with Best Buy last evening and Google Play earlier today.

Looking to take a slice of Google's Nexus 7 pie isn't easy, but it seems that Acer wants to push forward by offering new budget-friendly tablets in 2013. Specifically, it appears that Acer CEO Linxian Lang told the China Times that it will have low-cost 8 and 10-inch tablets coming up later this year.
patent filings go. Sometimes we see neat things and often we see things that never see the light of day. While we cannot say whether or not Google will ever put this latest patent filing to use in the real-world, it may be one to watch. Especially for those who enjoy taking pictures on their smartphone and have been dreaming of a better flash setup.
Gameloft has released several anticipated games for Android this year. Just to name a few, we saw Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour and Asphalt 7: Heat.
