    AT&T Opens A Swanky 10,000 Sq. Ft. Flagship Store In Chi-Town

    Today, AT&T opened up its 10,000 square foot flagship retail store on Michigan Ave. in Chicago. It’s a bit of a beast, with an 18-foot Connect Wall that displays news and product info to everyone in the store and in the street. But despite all the cool technology (and trust me, there’s plenty), AT&T is really looking to have more of connection with its consumers. When you… Read More

  • Slow Clap: AT&T Wireless Stops Selling Tablets With Subsidized Pricing

    Slow Clap: AT&T Wireless Stops Selling Tablets With Subsidized Pricing

    AT&T Wireless no longer sells tablets with a long-term contact. This is great news and comes by way of a memo leaked to Engadget Mobile. That means the upfront cost of tablets is slightly higher, but the consumer wins in the long run by not being locked into a tablet for a couple of years. This comes several weeks after Verizon stopped selling tablets with subsidies as well. In the past… Read More

    AT&T and T-Mobile Return Fire: Sprint Takes Aim

    MobileCrunch reported yesterday that Verizon’s new unlimited calling plan could start a price war in the U.S. mobile market. Hours after the announcement by Verizon Wireless, both AT&T and T-Mobile returned fire with unlimited calling plans of their own. Consumers should be happy but stock holders of the telecommunications companies may become a little gun shy. Verizon’s $99.99… Read More

    New Pantech C150 Mobile Phone Available Today

    Starting today, AT&T customers will be able to purchase the Pantech C150 camera phone. For what it’s worth, the C150 was a recipient of “a 2006 iF design award for international excellence in brand design.” Apparently, this is quite an award as it’s been going on for over 50 years and entries come in from all over the world and number in the thousands.

  • Space Shuttle Launch on Mobile, Like Watching Paint Dry?

    Space Shuttle Launch on Mobile, Like Watching Paint Dry?

    On July 20, 1969, the country paused to watch the first man walk on the moon. Just under 40 years later, and the space shuttle launch raises little more attention than a regularly scheduled flight on a commercial airline. Can mobile change all that? German mobile software company Dynetic plans to stream the next NASA launch of the Space Shuttle Atlantis on Friday, June 8, at 7:38 p.m. Read More

    The Ogo Lives On!

    If you were to ask me what a 7-11 and a failed communication device have in common, I’d say the Ogo from back in the day. Though it never quite caught on here, the Ogo lives on in the palms of our brothers across the Atlantic. IXI Mobile has launched the Ogo 2.0, which is pretty much the old one with a better display and re-done interface. It also has stereo speakers for…some… Read More
