    We've already seen the Samsung Galaxy Nexus extended battery in action with the occasion of our review and at that time you had to pay close to $55 if you wanted the extra juice for your phone. Now, if you purchase your Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE directly from Samsung at the link below, you will get a free Samsung Galaxy Nexus i515 Battery Bundle Kit with a 24-month activation of the phone. The price of the phone is $299.99 with a two-year contract but if you are already looking for the pure Android on Verizon, you might as well take advantage of this promotion. Source: ...

    Earlier we saw yet another carrier shift from WiMAX for the more popular LTE standard, but just how wide spread is this adoption? In 2009 we saw the first public implementation of LTE in Norway and Sweden, 4 years after the commercial introduction of WiMAX. Fast forward 3 years and we have heard statements from nearly every major carrier worldwide concerning their plans to adopt LTE. In the US the "Big 4" have each spoke of their 4G LTE rollout plans, with most already well into their path of fire. Even Yota, the Russian telecommunications provider, who built the worlds largest WiMAX ...

    If you've never owned a tablet, there's no device that we could recommend more than Apple's New iPad. We rarely give any product we review a full score of 5 stars out of 5, so there's no mistaking that this is simply one of the best tablets you can purchase at the moment. No product is perfect though, and Apple's past versions of the iPad are also good choices to pick from. With Apple's recent decision to sell their New iPad along with last year's iPad 2, and with the ease that you can find the First-Gen iPad on eBay for a good price, choices can become complicated for any first-time ...

    It is March 28, and, as Stephen Elop himself hinted (promised), Nokia made its Windows Phone debut in China. The first CDMA Nokia Windows Phone on the market is the 800C, introduced with China Telecom. It will become available in April in the two best-selling flavors: black and cyan. If you are looking for something else (cheaper), make sure to wait until the second quarter of the year (which is just around the corner) when a CDMA version of the Lumia 610 will also land on China Telecom's line-up. Future owners of the Lumia 800C on China Telecom will have access to "popular Chinese media ...

    The Samsung Epic 4G one one of the original Samsung Galaxy phones released. The Epic 4G, with its slide-out keyboard and Sprint 4G radio, has been one of the more difficult of the Galaxy's for custom ROMmers. Today Sprint announced an official OTA for the phone, which they're calling FC09. Included in the update are fixes for Force Close errors when receiving a call and the "Sprint Connections Optimizer". This OTA brings the software version up to S:D700.0.5S.FC09 and will be released in stages, with all devices getting the update within "approximately" six weeks. Sadly, not included in ...

    A bold move from Apple back with the release of the first-generation iPad, was to allow iPhone apps to run on it. Apps would box-into the display and allow you to even zoom into them to take over the iPad's full screen. Sadly, the problem was that zooming-in would turn any app into an old Nintendo 8-bit game show full of pixels. Apple's launch of the New iPad has changed that. You'll notice in our following video that if your iPhone apps have been enhanced to support the iPhone's Retina Display, zooming them into the New iPad's Retina Display will give you an image that's just as sharp. ...

    Samsung, in a seeming attempt to have the most tablets on the market at one time, has just recently released their Galaxy Tab 7.7 with LTE from Verizon. Similar in most respects to the original Galaxy Tab 7.7 (you can read our review on this variation here), this newest rev also includes LTE/CDMA radios from Verizon. An exciting form factor with a high-speed data connection, how could we resist taking a look? But can it survive against the current tablet market? Were any of the problems mentioned in our previous coverage resolved in this version? Read our review to find out! BOX CONTENTS ...

    With such pandemonium yesterday of people trying to pre-order their "New iPad", I'll bet many didn't even care how much AT&T or Verizon were gonna charge for their 4G data services, they still clicked the Pre-Order button. Well, the good thing is that the data plans don't seem that bad. It'll all depend on how much you think you'll consume in data, which is quite the thing when you've got all the power of 4G LTE. If you've ordered your device on Verizon, which holds by far the most reliable LTE network, the prices are: - $20 for 1GB - $30 for 2GB - $50 for 5GB If you're on AT&T and are ...

    As smartphones are getting faster, we're able to do more with them. In fact, many of us are phasing out the use of traditional computers for their miniature cousins in our pockets. Smartphones and tablets aren't wired down to a network jack, they're connected over the air. Since it's fairly likely that you'll send sensitive information at one point or another (passwords, back account numbers, etc.), it's probably a good time to ask ourselves which network technology is more secure: cellular or WiFi? Network Technologies WiFi is built primarily one one set of protocols. Virtually every ...

    The Nokia Lumia 800 was GSM only until now -- not that we didn't know about CDMA plans. The picture above, and the ones below, seem to feature the new CDMA Nokia Lumia 800 which will be landing in China pretty soon. It looks like the Lumia 800 will be available in China via China Telecom starting March. It will come in black, white and cyan color flavors and will feature a CDMA radio which will allow for operation on the carrier's network. The Nokia Lumia 710 is also expected in the same timeframe and the Lumia 900 -- most probably that device Nokia showed off accidentally -- will also be ...
