Taiwan NCC, their FCC equivalent, and along with it we're getting multiple pictures of the actual hardware. Check out this 4.65-inch Galaxy smartphone below.
SoftBank's intention of purchasing a 70% stake in Sprint is one of the month's bigger news stories (at least so far), so it's no wonder that today we're seeing other carriers coming out and stating some issues they have with the proposed acquisition. One of these carriers is AT&T, which is warning FCC regulators today to closely examine this buyout and its potential consequences. Specifically, AT&T seems concerned over the fact that SoftBank acquiring Sprint means that SoftBank will also take control of Clearwire, giving it a large amount of wireless spectrum.
FCC has just dropped some good news down on the folks at AT&T. We've seen countless spectrum and airwave transfers and purchases as of late, and now AT&T is getting in on even more action after they've been shopping for extra. Earlier this year the FCC allowed them to transfer some spectrum to T-Mobile after the failed merger, and now some unused broadband airwaves are going to get put to use.
Galaxy Camera has passed through the FCC with AT&T's 3G and HSPA+ 4G (not LTE) speeds on board. We first got a glance at the Galaxy Camera back at IFA last month, but now this new filing is giving us a better idea of what Samsung has in mind for the smart camera.
Optimus G quad-core smartphone and now a very similar device is headed to AT&T as the LG Eclipse 4G LTE. It looks like those who passed on the Galaxy S III could have a great device in their hands soon.
announced plans to buy up NextWave Wireless, and though it may seem like an odd purchase at first, there's a good reason for it. NextWave has the rights to use Wireless Communication Services (WCS) and Advanced Wireless Service (AWS) spectrum, and it seems that AT&T is specifically interested in WCS spectrum to give its 4G LTE service a boost. Of course, there are a few roadblocks that AT&T has to get past before it can do such a thing, considering that the FCC hasn't cleared WCS for mobile Internet yet.
Verizon is being forced by the FCC to pay a fine for apparently blocking their users from accessing third-party tethering apps. As is the case with most of these FCC fines, the $1.25 million settlement amount is chump change to a company as huge as Verizon, but it's more about the message the FCC sends to companies than it is about the money. Verizon will also be forced to train its employees on proper C Block procedure, which it is accused of breaking by blocking third-party tethering apps.
uncovered and leaked last week, possibly being called the Atrix 3 LTE and today we've received some more information and an FCC filing, adding credence to the rumor.
Samsung Galaxy Note might finally become a reality here soon sometime this summer. We've seen a few leaks suggest it was coming, and even spotted it in the wild running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich but now it has cleared the FCC and should hopefully be on the way to Magenta store shelves.
Google's been busy testing out some neat new gadgets that we all should know by know called Project Glass. These augmented reality type glasses allow users to do all sorts of fun things. This week it's been tipped directly from the FCC that not only is Google severely ramping up their testing, but they could be trying to get at least one version of Google Glass to pass the FCC by August of this year, not 2013.
