With Verizon AWS spectrum deal all-but approved, companies lining up to buy parts of 700MHz Spectrum

by: Andrew GrushAugust 22, 2012
It seems that the FFC and Department of Justice are very close to approving Verizon's AWS spectrum acquisition. For those that haven't been following, the AWS spectrum is being purchased from various cable companies for a sum of $3.9 billion. In order to get the AWS spectrum purchase approved, Verizon has had to agree to a couple of major provisions first. This includes divesting some of its spectrum to T-Mobile and even agreeing to sell off some of the 700MHz spectrum if the deal is fully approved.

Hoping to elevate the brand to new heights, Huawei has steadily upped its game this year by cranking up the specs on its upcoming phones and tablets.

New Samsung tablets hit FCC: LTE version of Galaxy Note 10.1 and a mystery 10-incher

by: AdrianAugust 9, 2012

Samsung has never denied it has trouble making Android tablets thrive, especially now, that it has lost quite a few battles in the legal war against Apple. But that doesn’t mean the smartphone kings won’t put up a fight.

According to some fresh FCC filings, Sammy seems to be preparing the launch of two new Android tablets in the near future, going by the codenames SGH-i497 and GT-P8110. And while we already knew part of the company’s tablet plans for this fall, that second gadget is a complete surprise.

Sony has been having a bad time in the highly competitive smartphone arena, but is hoping for a better time when it comes to the tablet world. There have been a lot of rumors of Sony’s [...]

by: Derek RossJuly 31, 2012
