Hassle-Free Bluetooth Speaker From Jabra

Jabra, a bluetooth cellphone accessory maker has just announced a Bluetooth speakerphone that allows for a plug n’ play experience, without the fuss of an installation.

The system is called Drive and it connects up to devices (e.g. a phone and a GPS unit), and without any setup, it allows the two gadgets to be paired and ‘talk’ to one another.

If you’re just looking to use it as a speakerphone, you can do that too, and users will enjoy 20 hours of talk time and 30 days of standby time on a single charge.

Caller ID On T-Mobile, $50 Per Year??

Okay, so I have to admit Caller ID is cool for a number of reasons. I think first and foremost, caller ID is the perfect tool to figure out whether you should take a call or not (especially if you are in a meeting or on the road).

Secondly, as a human being, I think the majority of us prefer to avoid surprises whenever necessary. If you need an example just think about Christmas when you were a kid and how you wanted to sneak out to the living room at 4AM to check the presents under the tree.

Sprint: AT&T Can Boost Network 6-Fold Without T-Mobile

In what seems like a last ditch effort from Sprint, the wireless carrier offered a solution to AT&T’s weak coverage through an FCC filing. Sprint claims that AT&T could increase its network capacity by 600% by year 2015 simply by making better use of the network resources it has.

Sprint allocates a 250% improvement from AT&T’s unused spectrum for 4G, while introducing a mixed-size network with both large and small cells could boost the network by an additional 300%.

AT&T Offers “Cell Tower In A Suitcase”

AT&T is now selling small, portable cellular antennas that allow corporations and government customers to provide their own wireless coverage in remote or disaster-struck areas. Instead of relying on cellphone companies to restore services after natural disasters, police and emergency personnel would instead be able to reset the mobile towers, prioritizing areas that need help the most.

The portable cell tower will be packed in a briefcase with a separate satellite dish needed.

T-Mobile Offers Free Calling Through Facebook!

T-Mobile USA has announced that they will be offering free phone calls on computers between Facebook friends. The latest announcement came after the release of a series of add-ons for popular web browsers. Once the add-on is installed, a phone icon appears beside each name in the Facebook chat section. By clicking the icon, a call is then placed through the user’s Internet connection. Although only the caller needs the software for the call to register, both individuals must be on Facebook at the same time, and of course have microphones and speakers.

The software add-ons are currently called Bobsled by T-mobile and the company plans to use the brand for different Internet-calling features. T-Mobile hopes to use the feature for phone apps so they can make free calls to those that matter most.
