New Nexus 7 with 4G LTE coming to Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile [Update: $349]

Up on stage here in San Fran at Google's Android event, Hugo Barra has been busy announcing the new Nexus 7 tablet, as well as Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Which we'll talk about in a moment. He also broke some excellent news about a 4G LTE model of the new Nexus 7. As we all know, the slate has leaked all month long and nothing is a surprise. We knew 4G LTE was coming, but not to the extent he just announced.

T-Mobile Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 update arrives with LTE support

T-Mobile had briefly mentioned they would be updating the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 tablet in the "coming weeks." That update was promising to bring LTE connectivity for the tablet and well, we have to say we were a bit surprised to see that update come available so quickly. Simply put, if you are sporting a T-Mobile branded Galaxy Tab 2 10.1and happen to be living somewhere the carrier has LTE -- you want to grab this update.

T-Mobile event wrap-up: JUMP, Simple Choice, Xperia Z and 4G LTE

T-Mobile has concluded their latest event, which was the one that promised to bring the "boldest moves yet." Deciding that will have to be left up to each individual, but what we can say is how T-Mobile brought some exciting new additions today. The event included a few items, two of which ended some long standing rumors. Those two were the JUMP upgrade program and the announcement of the Sony Xperia Z. In addition we also saw the Simple Choice plan announced for families and saw a bit of talk about the current state of the T-Mobile 4G LTE network.

With Verizon announcing last week they already hit their goal to have nearly all 3G covered with 4G by the end of 2013, AT&T is turning up the heat.

AT&T Samsung Galaxy S 4 Active Review

Samsung originally announced the Galaxy S4 Active in early June. Since that point we have seen the handset shown off during the Samsung Premiere event which took place a few days earlier. We managed to spend a few minutes of hands-on time with the handset during that event, however that was just the start of our experience with the Active. We received an AT&T branded Galaxy S4 a short while back and as such we have been able to spend a bit more time playing around -- and yes, that includes testing the device in water.
