4G is a Lie – Here’s Why

by: Darcy LaCouveeMarch 27, 2011

4G this, 4G that. “We’ve got the most advanced 4G network,”says one. “We’ve got America’s biggest 4G network,” say another. Even most iPhone users think their iPhone 4’s are 4G, most likely because of the “4”. Well, we hate to break it to you, but we are a long way from true 4G. Real 4G would mean you could download a 700MB video in 9 seconds. So, it’s important that you know – the term 4G does little more than create unjustified marketing hype for the major companies employing it. While no carrier in the world has yet to reach true 4G speeds – a company in Japan called DoComo has just made available a [...]

HTC Desire HD vs the Motorola Atrix

by: PushkarMarch 25, 2011

HTC announced the launch of its Desire HD smartphone in September 2010. HTC thought that with its release, it had brought the ‘smartest’ phone in the market, and the “smartest phone” tag was theirs to keep.

It was indeed the smartest phone until now. Then, came Motorola’s reply to HTC and made its Desire HD seem outdated. Motorola erased the smart phone tag and actually brought a super phone to the market, being the Motorola Atrix. Here’s our [...]

With the upcoming March 17-21st release of the HTC Thunderbolt we decided to see how the Thunderbolt stacks up to the competition.
