Archos has announced their new lineup of devices for the European market today, with four new Platinum phones. The lineup features HSPA+ and dual SIM support across the lineup, as well as a MT 6752 1.3GHZ dual-core processor.
Beginning today, AT&T GoPhone users can now get access to 4G speeds. This includes AT&T's HSPA+ and LTE networks, though it is provided the user has a supported handset. For now AT&T appears to have this aimed at those who already have a capable device and simply want to avoid signing a contract on something new. These new speeds are available at this time and will be available with the $65, $50 or $25 per month plans.
Safaricom is making a rather big announcement for Africa today, introducing its new Yolo smartphone. We'll sidestep jokes about the name for a moment to point out that this is a pretty significant release, as it's the first Intel-powered smartphone to launch in the country. That itself is rather big, with Safaricom targeting the phone at first-time owners living in Kenya.
T-Mobile has been working hard to update and improve their networks with faster 4G HSPA+ speeds. They've been calling it a network refarm or modernization project, and today have announced their largest update yet. Last week we mentioned 3 or 4 cities were getting updated, but today T-Mobile's confirmed an additional 14. More details on where can be found below.
T-Mobile continues to push forward with its network refarm, today announcing that it has strengthened its mobile network in three key markets. Those living in Seattle, Minneapolis, and Atlanta should see faster data speeds on unlocked devices. T-Mobile's network refarm seems to be coming along swimmingly, as it was just last week that the company announced it had expanded 4G service in a number of other markets.
It's been a pretty big day for T-Mobile, but the news just keeps on coming. On top of the day's other news, T-Mobile has announced that it has added three new markets to its network modernization efforts. According to the company, customers in Seattle, Minneapolis and Atlanta should be experiencing faster data speeds on unlocked devices.
It's time to get down to business with the Samsung Galaxy Camera as you'll be picking it up from your local AT&T retailer soon, and very soon. As it turns out, this device is essentially the same model you'll be getting if you're purchasing the device internationally - innards and all. there aren't even any AT&T logos on the device, as it were, with this machine appearing in your hands fully Samsung-friendly. What we're going to do in the review below is take a unique look at this device as it is brand new to the Android universe - less on the smartphone end of things (since it's not a smartphone, mind you), and a lot more on the photography angle.
As T-Mobile continues to modernize their network, known as a refarm, they've announced today that today three new Metro areas will all be getting better and faster HSPA+ speeds. T-Mobile took this moment to also state unlocked devices like the iPhone will get 70% faster speeds than on AT&T's network, but this also holds true for all Android devices.
It's no secret that the folks from Apple are likely set to announce their new iPad Mini next week, then release it in the following days. The battle is really going to heat up in the tablet wars once this happens, but Google doesn't need to worry. With the info leaked all week on the Nexus 7's imminent future, even with a 3G capable iPad Mini on Apple's side, Google will have all their bases covered for this holiday season.
T-Mobile loves its unlimited plans and they're one of the few carriers that still have them around. However, while providing unlimited data is certainly a boon, T-Mobile is currently working on improving and restructuring their network, making their 4G speeds even faster and providing coverage in more places.
