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%.

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.

Motorola Photon 4G Coming To Sprint

It looks like Sprint is planning on releasing a Motorola Photon 4G with specs that are as impressive as the recent HTC Holiday that we covered just a short while ago. The photon 4G will have a WiMax enabled version and comes packed with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a vibrant 4.3″ qHD Display, sporting a 960 x 540 pixel resolution. The device will have 1GB of RAM, more than sufficient for app multi-tasking.

An 8 megapixel camera gives users the opportunity to test their skills as amateur photographers without having to buy a digital camera. The Photon 4G will feature the latest version of MotoBlur and have…

Microsoft Profits From Android Sales?

Now you may be asking how on earth could Microsoft benefit from sales of HTC Android devices? HTC is an independent mobile carrier and Android is Google’s mobile operating system, so where does Microsoft fall in the picture? Due to a patent infringement lawsuit settlement with HTC, Microsoft receives $5 for every HTC phone that runs Android.

According to Walter Pritchard, a Citi analyst who revealed the information, Microsoft is also planning on targeting other Android device partners, looking for as much as $12.50 per device. What will this mean for consumers?

T-Mobile Releases Rocket 3.0 Modem Stick

T-Mobile revealed today the release date and pricing for the first HSPA+ 42Mbps modem along with an announcement that the network is doubling the speed of its current 4G network across 50 markets in the United States.

I am glad to see that while AT&T seeks to get the T-Mobile acquisition approved, T-Mobile continues business as usual (which is smart, in case the deal doesn’t go through, it wouldn’t be good for T-Mobile to stand as a wallflower).

Hop On Verizon’s Fast 4G LTE Network

Verizon’s Wireless 4G LTE network is relatively new, receiving a fresh start just six months ago, the network is still quite fast for those just starting out with Verizon. If you’re looking to join the fun, I recommend checking out the Novatel Wireless E362 as an exceptional internal LTE modem.

If your laptop isn’t already equipped with a WiFi card, or even if it is, you’ll still be able to upgrade to Verizon’s speedy 4G LTE by popping this bad boy in.

Full Details On Motorola Droid 3

We’ve covered the Droid 3 after we caught some leaked photos on the Internet. The device will carry a 4″ qHD display, and as we have previously seen from the photos, a full QWERTY keyboard. Now, the slide-out keyboard doesn’t feature Island keys like the HTC G2, so you may encounter a number of typos here and there, especially if you are texting in a rush.
