The Galaxy S4 will be available from at least four Australian carriers, including Telstra, Vodafone, Optus and Virgin.
Samsung’s Android success story started with a little phone called the Galaxy S2 two years ago, so it makes sense for the Koreans to still care about their first “big thing”.
The stakes are higher than ever for HTC’s flagship, confirmed to be the One and only of its kind, but so far the 4.7-incher looks like it can handle the pressure.
HTC One’s current ETA for Europe is mid-March, but don’t be surprised if you’re going to see the bad boy in stores earlier.
It was pretty smart to unveil the One before the Samsung Galaxy S4, but that’s going to mean zilch if HTC’s flagship won’t also be out in stores by the time the S4 is official. The sooner the better.
Ofcom, the UK telecommunications regulator, has released the results of the UK’s 4G auction. The winners are Everything Everywhere, Hutchison 3G UK (Three), Niche Spectrum Ventures (a BT subsidiary), Telefonica, and Vodafone.
A few recent developments have woken us from our 2-year-plan slumber. We’ve been exposed to a very inexpensive unlocked phone in the Nexus 4, and T-Mobile has decided to stop subsidizing phones. If we can get a great unlocked phone for a reasonable price, or a cheaper rate plan with an unsubsidized phone, why shouldn’t we? Are we able to end our dependence on carriers? It’s possible, and maybe even better, to break away from the normal routine.
As we inch toward a true global conscience, we are increasingly dependent on being connected. Being connected is what defines us, with things like social media, blogs, and news sites. Here in the USA, we are fortunate to have a huge network of connectivity, but are we doing the right things with our network?
Two smartphones in Australia are getting upgraded to Jelly Bean today; the Samsung Galaxy S3 on Telstra and the HTC One X on Vodafone and Optus. Have you gotten yours?
Though Samsung has gone out of its way lately to ensure all Galaxy S3 users worldwide can get a taste of Jelly Bean, there are still a couple of loose ends to be tied up here and there.
