Android fragmentation, Samsung is no stranger to releasing a wide variety of handsets. While this often means a variety of display sizes and price points, today we are seeing another variant of the Galaxy S 4 and the Galaxy S 4 Mini. Both of these models will soon be available in a dual-LTE variant.
Verizon Wireless had been approaching the 500 market milestone and it looks like that goal has since been achieved. Big Red has said the 4G LTE network now officially covers 500 markets across 49 states. It also looks like they will soon be getting into the 50th state as well. In addition to the 500 market news, Verizon has said they will be launching in Alaska sometime next month.
AT&T has once again returned with some news on the 4G LTE expansions. This time around the new LTE coverage is coming for those in a handful of markets across six states. Those six states include Arkansas, California, Georgia, Minnesota, North Dakota and Ohio. Basically, if you happen to have coverage available -- now seems like a good time to make sure you have an LTE handset at the ready.
Sony has officially taken the wraps off of its new phablet, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, a whopping 6.4-inch Full HD Android smartphone powered by Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 800 chipset. Running at 2.2GHz, the MSM8974 quadcore makes the Xperia Z Ultra one of the fastest - if not, for the moment at least, the fastest - phones around; it also gets 4G LTE and an 8-megapixel camera.
one day after the last LTE expansion news, AT&T has dropped word of another expansion. This time around we are seeing coverage expand across nine states. The amount of coverage will vary from state to state, however this latest list includes Arkansas, Arizona, Illinois, New Jersey, North Carolina, Minnesota, Ohio, Oregon and South Dakota.
previous 4G LTE expansion news, AT&T has announced new coverage for those in Pennsylvania and New York. The Pennsylvania coverage is limited to just one market, however the New York coverage is a bit more widespread for today. Of course, the way AT&T has been expanding the 4G LTE network over the past few months, even if your city is not yet live -- it may be soon enough.
AT&T has announced the latest 4G LTE expansions. This time around we are seeing new and expanded coverage spreading across 13 states. The list includes Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Michigan, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Ohio, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Utah and Washington. Perhaps even nicer, some of these states have multiple markets seeing the new coverage.
recently launched with Verizon Wireless and while the handset brings LTE support out of the box, it is looking like a future update will bring additional speeds. We are talking about support for Advanced Wireless Service (AWS) which will arrive as an upgrade to the Verizon network. AWS, according to reports, should more than double the current available speeds.
