Yesterday Google posted the official specs for the LG Nexus 4 on its Google Play Store and in doing so created more than a little confusion. The problem was that Google’s specs claimed the Nexus 4 would only work with HPSA+ 21. This was in stark contrast to T-Mobile’s press release, which suggested the Nexus 4 did in fact have HSPA+ 42 support. Essentially this meant that either LG had more than one version of the Nexus device or someone had made a mistake. The good news is that Google was at error here, not T-Mobile.
As you already know by now, Google on Monday unveiled its new products that will target shoppers around the world this holiday season including the Google Nexus 4 smartphone made by LG, the Google Nexus 10 tablet by Samsung and the new Google Nexus 7 tablet versions made by Asus. Obviously, all of them will run Google’s most recent Android 4.2 OS right out of the box (also announced today,) so there are plenty of reasons to be excited about these new devices.
Given differences in 4G technology support, carriers across the U.S. are adopting a gradual roll-out of their 4G technologies. T-Mobile, for one, has promised network-wide LTE support for 200 million U.S. customers by end of 2013. While T-Mobile currently doesn’t support LTE, it seems the Galaxy Note 2 only has LTE deactivated through the firmware.
So it’s finally here – the sequel to the smartphone that has launched a thousand “size” jokes and debates on what to call it, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Especially for you, we’ve compiled everything we know so far of the Galaxy Note 2’s availability on several U.S. and Canadian carriers. Happy hunting!
With word coming from T-Mobile, we now know that the carrier has plans to launch another Android tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. The unfortunate part here, the pricing and the release details are not expected to be announced for a few weeks.
We’ve been expecting the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to hit the States for months, but unfortunately the first carrier to start selling the second gen phablet seems to have missed the ideal price mark.
As Sprint and AT&T are preparing to welcome the LG Optimus G to their embrace, T-Mobile is opting to carry its smaller and less-equipped cousin, the LG Optimus L9. Before the budget phone was even listed on T-Mo’s website, a leak suggested that it will be priced rather aggressively. Now, the price has been confirmed by the carrier.
Everything Everywhere (EE), the carrier titan born from the unholy matrimony between Orange UK and T-Mobile UK, has been the first mobile operator in the region to launch its 4G LTE network, although its competitors are also going to get faster data networks soon.
Some good news for those looking to move forward with mobile payments, the Isis Mobile Wallet has officially launched as of today. The wallet support will available in Austin and Salt Lake City and come for select devices with T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and AT&T.
By know you already know that T-Mobile will soon offer its customers two new Android handsets, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the LG Optimus L9. However, we still lack actual release dates and pricing details for each of the two handsets.
