Just a week since the 3rd generation iPad debut and the Internet is abuzz with iPhone 5 rumors. The new iPad features have left everyone speculating as to the features and functionality in the next-gen iPhone, slated for release in Fall 2012.
The most important thing to carriers besides subscribers is mobile spectrum; but by next year, according to CNN Money, the FCC could experience what is known as a “Spectrum Crunch” where there will be no more airwaves to pass around. This comes at a time where mobile carriers need spectrum the most as data hogging smartphones, such as the Apple iPhone, use up all their spectrum. If carriers don’t get enough spectrum soon, the result will be dropped calls and slow data speeds. So what are the big 4 mobile carriers going to do about this? They’re going to do the best they can to get a much spectrum as possible, but it won’t be pretty. In fact, its going to be gruesome and here’s why.
Wireless electricity (sans the cord), has been around for quite awhile, dating back to 1890 when Nikola Tesla unleashed power for the first time. However I wouldn’t exactly call his wireless electricity safe for home use; unless you want a really REALLY dark tan.
U.S. Seeks to Block AT&T Merger with T-Mobile
September 1, 2011 – 12:25PM Segment
I recently posted about the U.S. government’s meddling in the merger between AT&T and T-Mobile by having filed an antitrust lawsuit to prevent the deal from going through.
It’s clear that wireless will be the communication and computing technology of the future, as sales of smartphones and tablets/iPads surge. Competition among mobile carriers, then, is clearly important to both consumers and the economy.
The U.S. Department of Justice filed an antitrust lawsuit today to block AT&T’s $39 billion merger with T-Mobile. The merger, which would create the largest wireless company in the U.S., would have been a deal between the nation’s second- and fourth-largest wireless phone carriers. The Department of Justice filed the suit on antitrust grounds, stating that the merger would substantially lessen competition, result in higher prices and give consumers lower quality and less innovative products. Along with Verizon, the two merged companies would account for 78% of the industry’s revenue and over two-thirds of wireless customers in the U.S.
The new A3 aPen is the hottest new gadget for back to school. aPen is a digital pen that lets you digitize and record handwritten notes or photo skteches via wireless sync to your PC, Blackberry or Android phone using Bluetooth technology.
Today I am going to share my glowing review of the Logitech K800 Wireless Illuminated Keyboard. Let me first start with a little background.
BlackBerry’s newest edition, the BlackBerry Playbook went on sale April 19th, getting a snub from both AT&T, Verizon.
More than two days after the PlayBook debuted, two of the largest U.S. wireless carriers announced they are still unsure about offering some of the tablet’s features, or perhaps selling the device at all.
