Nokia Confirms: Tethering Coming to Full Lumia Line Up

Posted March 19, 2012 @ 8:00 am CST by Alberto Lima

When Nokia previously announced that WiFi tethering was coming to their Lumia 610, a very entry-level handset for the Asian market, it was baffling that the higher-end handsets (namely the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710) would not be getting the update with Mango (Windows Phone 7.5). After all, Microsoft made WiFi tethering a big part of the […]

AT&T revises throttling procedure on unlimited data plans

Posted March 1, 2012 @ 12:00 pm CST by Alberto Lima

It’s really no surprise that the days of truly unlimited data plans are a thing of the past. Even customers who were grandfathered into all-you-can-eat data plans, mainly iPhone customers, have seen text messages notifying them that they were now in the “top 5% of data users” and subject to data throttling. Up to this point, […]

California Governor vetos bill requiring warrant to search mobile devices

Posted October 11, 2011 @ 9:00 am CST by Chris Ness

California, land of the … questionable. Governor Brown has vetoed a bill requiring a warrant to search mobile phones at the time of arrest. Since more and more people live out of their phones, that means more than 160-character text messages; E-mails, Facebook, pictures, location etc (for those who use Blackberrys, your “super secure” BBM […]

Apple kicks Samsung to the curb

Posted July 16, 2011 @ 8:50 am CST by Alberto Lima

You know that’s the thing about lovers’ spats; first you build them up telling them how awesome they are and then you start throwing around silly lawsuits about confusing potential customers and ripping off the design of the box – you know the thing you throw away – that your product comes in.

Nexus S…in spaaaaaaaaaaace!

Posted July 8, 2011 @ 9:03 pm CST by Steven Callas

What’s that? Androids in space? There’s something really fitting about this whole thing as the word “android” has always had a sci-fi connection to space. Famous space-faring androids include Data from Star Trek, Roy Batty from Blade Runner, and Max 404 from Android. Today Google and Samsung are bringing that fantasy a bit closer to […]

Andy Rubin: Google Activates 500,000 Android Devices A Day

Posted June 28, 2011 @ 1:14 pm CST by Eric Ravenscraft

In what is perhaps a sympton of Google’s social ineptitude (sorry guys, truth hurts), Andy Rubin, who is in a lot of ways the face of Android, rarely tweets. And not in the once-or-twice-a-week way like you. He’s sent five tweets since October of 2010, despite having 30,000 followers. Yet when he does tweet, it […]

Verizon Tiered Data Plans: Dumb As F*#k

Posted June 20, 2011 @ 5:06 pm CST by Eric Ravenscraft

We all knew it was coming, but DroidLife portends the nature of the beast. As the story goes, Verizon will introduce tiered data on July 7th, presumably to consummate that freedom-loving Fourth of July workweek with a ball-and-chain around your device. The plans, according to DroidLife, will be $30/month for 2GB of data, $50/month for […]
