Devs Get Galaxy S II Up to Full Speed on AT&T’s HSPA+ Network

The Samsung Galaxy S II may not be available from any US carriers, but those who have imported it are able to use it on AT&T's "4G" HSPA+ network.

Launcher Pro Dev Releases Beta of His Music App

A man after Google's own Beta loving heart, Federico Carnales, the developer responsible for the zippy home replacement, Launcher Pro, has moved his music app into beta today. The app, which originally looked much like the Windows Phone 7 music player, now totes a highly customizable skinning engine, which Fed will release details on shortly.

Samsung Slider for Verizon Pops Up in Pics

Looks like another Samsung phone has popped up. This one is a slider, headed for Verizon that looks extremely similar to the Galaxy S variant, the Epic 4G. We don't know much about the phone, other than its code the SCH-i405.

New Bill Would Require Stricter 4G Definitions

4G has been a bit of a bitter subject for those who have any sort of technical understanding of the topic. There exists an organization, the International Telecommunications Union, who set the standard for what would constitute 4G long before the first "4G" network was deployed.

Now a bill has been presented to the U.S. House of Representatives to force wireless carriers to provide more information to consumers about what constitutes their 4G network.

A tweet from Motorola just a few hours ago has explicitly confirmed that the Bionic is indeed set to be released this summer.
