  • Sprint to launch WiMAX network this Spring

    Let’s talk about WiMAX, friends. WiMAX, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a fairly new wireless standard currently being used by companies like Clearwire to provide internet access “wirelessly”.

  • Sprint selling 'HTC Touch' starting November 4th

    Hey, have you been patiently waiting for the HTC Touch to be released as part of Sprint’s Q4 offerings? Well, it’ll be here pretty soon. The phone "will be priced at $249.99 with a two-year subscriber agreement and a $100 mail-in rebate." I’m pretty sure that means that it’ll cost $250 after rebate but these slick-willy PR people have made an ass of me plenty… Read More

    The Rumor is the latest “social networking” phone, or SNP*, to hit the market. It joins the Sidekick series from T-Mobile, the enV from Verizon, and the Ocean from Helio.

For a company like Vonage that’s been hemmoraging money due to legal… Read More

    If someone says something feels good in their hands one more time, I swear my head is going to explode. Here’s a decent video walk through of the Centro’s interface.

  • World's smallest EV-DO Rev. A modem dongle

    Novatel went ahead and released a new USB EV-DO dongle on Verizon and Sprint. The Ovation U727 is the world’s smallest dongle and features an integrated microSD slot.

My AirCard 595U is one… Read More

  • Vonage Ordered To Pony Up $69.5 Million To Sprint

    That’s gonna leave a mark. Apparently Vonage infringed upon six of Sprint Nextel’s patents, which is a big, expensive no-no. Sprint will receive $69.5 million plus 5 percent of Vonage’s future revenue. Earlier this year, Vonage lost a cool $58 million, plus 5.5% future royalties to Verizon. That now seems somewhat tame. All told, that brings the grand total to $127.5 million… Read More
