Just when we thought Verizon was left uninvited to the HTC party this year, Big Red unveiled a teaser page for a new HTC handset. Continuing on the carrier’s traditional Droid path, loyal subscribers will be treated with the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE.
The “Droid Does” website reveals the innards of the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE, which will see the phone sporting a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4-inch qHD LCD screen, 8GB internal storage, microSD card slot, 1,700mAh battery, Sense 4, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. On the multimedia front, the Droid Incredible 4G LTE gets a high-speed 8MP rear camera to take rapid-fire shot sequences, a VGA front [...]
Let’s take a breather from the spectacle that is Samsung Galaxy S3 and check out what other smartphones the company is apparently cooking up.
A new breed of Samsung phone with model number SCH-i200 has inconspicuously made its way to Bluetooth SIG’s website, which was then picked up by the folks at Pocket Now. Using the model number, they were able to get more information about the phone, thanks to an entry on GLBenchmark website.
What we have here is a phone that shows a strange mix of high-and low-end specs. Codenamed Jasper, the Samsung phone will boast a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor and a WVGA display. So it’s essentially a phone that has the HTC One X’ [...]
While Sprint is still ironing out the final kinks in its new 4G LTE network, Verizon Wireless is preparing yet another important expansion of its LTE service, making it that much difficult for anyone to threaten its leadership in the mobile carrier market. No less than 27 new markets will be covered starting today, while Big Red’s 4G LTE network will also be expanded in 47 existing markets. This should result, according to official statements, in over two thirds of the US population being covered by Verizon’s high-speed wireless service.
The total number of markets covered by Verizon starting tomorrow will reach 230 across the United States, but the expansion will [...]
Verizon isn’t really short in HTC devices – with three Android smartphones made by the Taiwanese manufacturer currently being offered by the carrier, namely HTC Droid Incredible 2, HTC Rhyme, and HTC Rezound. But given the fanfare that the HTC One Series has been receiving, it’s quite odd how the biggest carrier in the US seems to be left out in the cold. AT&T and Sprint got their HTC One X, while T-Mobile sports the HTC One S – what new and shiny HTC phone is coming to Verizon?
Without any hype (it sure feels like it), Verizon might be releasing the HTC Droid Incredible 4G, the phone that was once known as the HTC Fireball, at the end of this month. To be precise, [...]
Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint have just announced an agreement with the U.S. government to build a central database of all cell phones. The nation’s four biggest wireless carriers will use the database as part of a broad effort to growing problem of phone and data theft.
Last year, 54% more robberies than in 2007 ended up with cell phone theft in Washington, D.C., while 38% of all robberies in the US capital target such devices, said FCC officials. However, things are as bad as, if not worse, in other large American cities, like Los Angeles or Philadelphia.
Another surprising report states that electronics are nowadays the most stolen type of property [...]
Yo, deal hunters, bargain lovers, listen up! If you haven’t yet got your hands on a 4G LTE high-end Android smartphone and your favorite carrier around the block is Verizon, Big Red has a special offer waiting for you right now.
The 4G LTE HTC Rezound, one of the coolest Android handsets of these past months, goes for a mere $49.99 with a two-year contract. That’s about as low as a smartphone of this kind can go for at the moment and it’s what Amazon Wireless charges for the Rezound as well.
I know, I know, you’re all probably waiting either for the Samsung Galaxy S III or for the HTC One X (or maybe even the Huawei Ascend D Quad XL), and the Rezound will [...]
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is not yet here, and it might be a while before we get to see Sammy’s future flagship up for sale, so for the time being, the Galaxy Nexus is still the number one Android Ice Cream Sandwich on the market (at least until the HTC One X lands).
If you haven’t yet purchased the Galaxy Nexus, either because you were a bit phased by its not-so-affordable price or because you were far from impressed by its mediocre battery life, Samsung Direct now has a deal that you shouldn’t miss for the life of it.
For any Verizon branded Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE purchased through the online store, you get a free extended battery bundle, in other words a [...]
Although a recent report showed that just less than 3% of all Android devices run on Ice Cream Sandwich, we’re beginning to see more and more devices being updated to the latest version of Android. With Verizon releasing a list of all smartphones scheduled to receive the ICS update (restricted to the smartphones on Big Red’s network, of course), many smartphone owners are eagerly expecting to get a taste of Google’s latest Android version.
Fortunately for some of them, Android Police has just published a leaked Best Buy document that claims the Motorola Droid RAZR, Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx, and the HTC Rezound are scheduled to get their updates in early April. It should be [...]
Rumors of yet another Motorola Droid phone made their way to the blogosphere several weeks ago, thanks to a leaked screenshot showing upcoming Android smartphones to be released by Verizon. But, back then, we only got a glimpse of a possible name and release date. Dubbed the Motorola Droid Fighter, the third Motorola Droid offering in six months will be made available on Verizon’s network on April 12. Now, we can finally attach a face to Motorola’s feistily-named new Droid.
A grainy image of the supposed Droid Fighter has been uploaded to the Phone HK forum. The device in the picture clearly bares Motorola’s logo on the top and Verizon’s on the [...]
According to a survey conducted by market research company NPD Group, the US 4G smartphone market has grown almost sixfold during the Q4 2010 – Q4 2011 interval. Accounting for 35% of all smartphones sold in the US during the last quarter of 2011, the market was fairly quick to grow out of the 6% it hold in the same period of 2010. Confusingly enough, the most popular 4G network in the US was reported to be HSPA+, standing at 22%. As HSPA + is actually a 3G-based standard, and not actually 4G per-se, many will interpret the real 4G smartphone market share as standing at only 13%.
The fastest 4G network in the United States is LTE, as Verizon pointed [...]
