Phones 4U New JUMP offers phone upgrades every 6 months

The popular Phones 4U in the UK have been running a trial since last year for a new smartphone trade in model called JUMP.

Recently reports suggest Verizon spent an upwards of $69 million to boost their network in preparation for the big game, Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis. They've been getting all the airtime but they aren't the only ones going big for my favorite day of the year.

AT&T is aiming to offer their subscribers the perfect day full of football, beer, and a few signal bars too.

Sony Xperia PLAY 4G LTE in the works

The Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY wasn't nearly as popular as many thought it would be, but now there are a few rumors and details going around showing we might be seeing a newer, faster 4G LTE version hit the streets from Verizon.

Analyst predicts 339 million low-end Android phones by 2015

The last figure we heard from Google on official Android activations was a jaw-dropping 190 million, but that didn't make any distinction between late-model, high-end smartphones and the lower-end phones that have been filling out carriers' line ups lately. According to analyst firm In-Stat, the number of low-end Android phones (under $150 USD unlocked) alone will jump to 339 million over the next four years, spurred on by Android's flexibility and other mobile operating systems' lack of competition in the space. But that isn't necessarily a good thing for everyone.
