A No-Contract Dream For $200: Nokia 500

It looks like we may have an introductory touch screen smartphone before the famous Sea Ray debuts. The Nokia N500, a Symbian Anna powered phone, runs on a 1GHz processor (single-core), and while that may not seem like much, Symbian has been known to not use too many computing resources.

The device itself rocks a 3.2″ capacitive touchscreen with a modest 640 x 360 pixel resolution and a 5MP rear-facing camera to snap photos on the go.

Hulu Plus Arrives To 4 More Android Devices

Have you been waiting for Hulu Plus to arrive on more Android devices than the six currently supported? If you can’t get enough of your favorite television shows, the answer is probably ‘yes’ and we have good news for you!

The new devices to get Hulu lovin’ are the Sprint Evo 4G, T-Mobile G2, T-Mobile myTouch 4G, and the Verizon Thunderbolt. While it’s cool that Hulu is targeting the major cell phones, I still feel a bit bad for those who have a lesser known Android device.

New Bill Requires Carriers To Give Guaranteed Min. Data Speed

A new piece of legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives would require mobile carriers to provide a ‘guaranteed minimum’ for their data speeds to their potential customers. This would give customers a better idea of what they are signing up for, especially with unlimited data plans becoming a rarity.

Currently, wireless carriers provide a maximum speed which leaves many customers to assume that if they sign up with the wireless carrier, they too will receive similar speeds as the maximum. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case and leaves many consumers with a bitter taste in their mouth.

HTC EVO 4G+ Coming Soon!

It’s been a short while since we’ve covered anything related to HTC, and we happy to tell you guys that the HTC Rider is actually the HTC EVO 4G+. While there isn’t 3D support, its other specs are sure to please.

The device has a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU, and carries a vibrant 4.3″ qHD display without any 3D BS. For a phone, the RAM is rather sufficient, providing a total of 1GB of RAM and a 1080p capable 8MP rear-facing camera with a 1.3MP front-facing camera.

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%.

Never Be “On Hold” Again, W/ Fast Customer App

A new app called Fast Customer is temporarily free, down from its usual price of 99 cents, and lets consumers connect directly to a live person from a selection of hundreds of businesses.

Here’s how it works. Rather than going through the trouble of navigating through complicated menu systems and getting directions from a “machine”, or suffer through holiday music while you wait, the company actually calls you.

More For Me, An Android Deal-Finder App

If you’ve got Android, you’re going to want to check out T-Mobile’s new app that was just released. All users can enjoy the app, regardless of wireless carrier, and it’s called More For Me. The application pulls the best daily deals from websites like Living Social and streamlines it to your custom interests and demographic.

The Groupon-style apps are quite hot these days, with people looking for the best bargains around town, especially in the recession we are in. T-Mobile is the first wireless carrier to offer such an app.

Verizon On The Horizon: 19 More Cities Get LTE

Verizon Wireless has just announced that it will be adding 19 more cities to its blazing fast, LTE wireless network. The rollout begins on Thursday and will bring happiness to many Verizon Wireless customers looking to get faster data times with their usage.

In addition to the increased coverage, previously covered cities such as San Francisco and Detroit will get expanded coverage. This means that if you live in the outskirts of San Francisco and were just out of reach of LTE before, you should be golden soon.

T-Mobile Offers 1 Year Supply Of Free Data

T-Mobile is gearing up for a special way to celebrate Father’s Day this year, and it’s a little cooler than a $25 gift card. The wireless carrier is offering a one year supply of free data as long as the customer signs up for the service by June 18th for a qualifying talk, text, and data plan.

Before you go, “Aw, shucks, I’m already WITH T-Mobile”, know that this deal also applies to existing customers who have 18 or more months of contract used up with T-Mobile. The new deal requires the consumer to purchase an unlimited talk and text plan, and in return will receive 200MB of free, high-speed data each month for one year.
