This morning Verizon has announced another new price and offering for the prepaid plan folks. The new plan is 3G only and is a prepaid, contract free, and is offering unlimited talk and text, along with 1GB of data for a low price of just $80 a month.

Google offers free data to Android users in India

Smartphones are great. Smartphone data plans? Not so great, especially in parts of the world where the mobile infrastructure is somewhat lacking. But it looks like Google's doing something about that in India: they're partnering with Reliance Communications to give free mobile data access with the purchase of a new Android phone or tablet. The good news is that anyone who buys a new phone from any Android manufacturer will be eligible. The bad news is that it's just one non-recurring gigabyte on the 3G network.

The only iPad feature I’m jealous of is contract-free mobile data

Apple unveiled its latest iPad in San Francisco yesterday, and as usual, the tech world and more established media swooned at the shiny new piece of engineered obsolescence. As a die-hard Android fan, I wasn't moved - sure, the screen is nice (even if it's still the wrong ratio) and the processor is impressive, but my distaste for Apple as a manufacturer, developer and corporation is more than enough to overcome any fleeting feeling of hardware lust. But there's one feature that remains exclusive to the iPad that I want, badly, and it isn't coming to Android any time soon: wireless data without a contract.

AT&T tweaks data plans, gives us more for our dollar

AT&T has apparently started a restructure of their mobile data plans and have done a bit of tweaking. My title is a bit misleading and so our the prices.

AT&T is nudging the price of all their plans up a notch but are giving us a little extra data in return.

Verizon CEO confirms family data plans coming in 2012

While many family plans are available to share minutes and text messages the option to share data across the entire group is still not available. I'd have thought we'd see this already but apparently not. This week at at the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference, Lowell McAdam, CEO at Verizon had a few updates regarding the matter. He notes that it only makes sense for family plans to be able to share data and have a single bill and that after 2 years of work toward account-level pricing, Verizon may finally be ready.
