US Dept of Justice Puts the Kabosh on AT&T and T-Mobile Merger!!

In March of this year AT&T announced plans to buy out rival T-Mobile. This merger would make AT&T the largest provider of cellular service in the United States effectively leapfrogging Verizon. Of course Sprint and Verizon were not big fans of this maneuver and the companies particularly Sprint have been quite vocal in their opposition. Now it seems that the United States Government has some issues as well.

Bloomberg is reporting today that the US Department of Justice has filed an antitrust complaint to stop this merger immediately. If the merger does not go through it would be a very bad day for AT&T since they will owe T-Mobile $3billion in the case of the deal not working. AT&T has promised alot of jobs to the American worker in the merger but it seems the DOJ needs a little more convincing and feel that the merger would result in “in higher prices, poorer quality services, fewer choices and fewer innovative products for the millions of American consumers who rely on mobile wireless services in their everyday lives.”

The FCC also issues a statement-“By filing suit today, the Department of Justice has concluded that AT&T’s acquisition of T-Mobile would substantially lessen competition in violation of the antitrust laws. Competition is an essential component of the FCC’s statutory public interest analysis, and although our process is not complete, the record before this agency also raises serious concerns about the impact of the proposed transaction on competition. Vibrant competition in wireless services is vital to innovation, investment, economic growth and job creation, and to drive our global leadership in mobile. Competition fosters consumer benefits, including more choices, better service and lower prices” Julius Genachowski, chairman, FCC

Not to be left out here is what AT&T Senior VP Wayne Watts has to say-
"We are surprised and disappointed by today's action, particularly since we have met repeatedly with the Department of Justice and there was no indication from the DOJ that this action was being contemplated. We plan to ask for an expedited hearing so the enormous benefits of this merger can be fully reviewed. The DOJ has the burden of proving alleged anti-competitive affects and we intend to vigorously contest this matter in court. At the end of the day, we believe facts will guide any final decision and the facts are clear. This merger will:

· Help solve our nation's spectrum exhaust situation and improve wireless service for millions.
· Allow AT&T to expand 4G LTE mobile broadband to another 55 million Americans, or 97% of the population;
· Result in billions of additional investment and tens of thousands of jobs, at a time when our nation needs them most.
We remain confident that this merger is in the best interest of consumers and our country, and the facts will prevail in court.

It seems that right now noone knows that this merger will mean for the US consumer and the Government is not comfortable letting it do through without some more research. Rest assured that this is only the first
strike in what is sure to be a long battle. With $3billion at stake AT&T will not go quietly into the night!!

Irene Can't Stop all this Galaxy S II Goodness for AT&T and T-Mobile!!

For months now Android fans in the US have watched and waited. Waited for one of the biggest Android phones of the year to reach our shores and not even Hurricane Irene can hold it back for long! Samsung held their big event today in New York City to unveil three versions of GSII. Kidromulous already reported on the Sprint version here and now for the AT&T and T-Mobile versions.

Thankfully for my typing hand both AT&T and T-Mobile kept it simple in naming this device and just went with Galaxy S II branding for bother versions. The AT&T GSII will be releasing Sept. 18th and will sport all the specs we have come to know and love. The phone will be packing a 1.2GHz dualcore processor, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 4G HSPA+ radio,8MP rear camera w/2MP front camera,1080p HD video support, HDMI out and 1650 mAh battery. The AT&T GSII will come with a 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus display which may come as a disappointment to some. Keep in mind that the Infuse already has the 4.5" display and the smaller battery and screen keep the phone down to a very slim 8.89mm.

The T-Mobile GSII is a little harder to write up, it seems that their version was not quite ready for the show and was not able to be demo'd. They did have a version on display and it showed off some very nicely rounded corners and a softer look. The T-Mobile version will be equipped with the larger 4.52 Super AMOLED display, 8MP rear and 2MP front camera combo w/ 1080p HD video support, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 1.2 GHz dualcore processor, HSPA+ 4G radio, WiFi calling, and a large number of preloaded apps. There is no actual release date or final specs for weight and width reveled at the show.

Samsung is already showing off numerous docks and accessories for these phones so you will be able to buy gear to your heart's content. The big news here is that this phone is finally concrete and everyone can start checking to see when your contract upgrade is due!!

HP to make more Touch Pads?

So HP has seen the light and decided to make one final run of TouchPads to help meet demand. These extra pads will reportedly appear in the next few weeks and honeslty I have to say I'm quite pleased with the decision and not because I'm excited to see Cyanogen Mod running on a WebOS tablet but because I'm still kind of excited about WebOS. There are still good people very dedicated to the WebOS software platform not to mention HP themselves who have not abandoned software at all only hardware production (there seems to be some confusion about this.) Perhaps I will get my hands on one this time around. One thing we don't know is exactly how many they will produce.

Samsung Epic 4G Touch Has Emerged

So all the speculation can finally end we know that Sprint will be the first to get the Samsung Epic 4G Touch and that it will be a 4G Wimax variant of the Samsung Galaxt S II.Finally the phone has been announced ahead of tonight's event and it's coming to Sprint's 4G network next month. This monster will pack a 4.52 inch Super AMOLED and the 1.2 GHz Exynos processor. How does this change things for you? Especially with the rumor that Verizon may hold exclusivity rights (at least for a time) to the the Samsung Prime phone. Have you guys considered multiple manufacturers for the Prime? More on these theories and the Samsung event to come.

The Nexus Prime To Be Verizon Exclusive named Droid Prime???

Verizon for the Win!!!!

After breaking news yesterday on the soon to be announced Samsung Galaxy S II 4G LTE it seems that this phone had more secrets to reveal. To the heartbreak of many Verizon customers the announcement was made that Big Red would not be picking up the Galaxy S II. The reason given by Verizon corporate was the lineup of upcoming releases had no place for the GSII. Well now the real reason for this decision has been reveled and it will be worth the wait! Read on for details.

The Galaxy S II LTE will come with a 4.65" Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.5GHz dualcore processor,Android 4.0 Icecream Sandwich and 4G LTE radios. These specs match up very closely to what we know about the Nexus Prime and now for the big news! Not only is Verizon getting this phone but they will be getting it in October and it will be a Verizon exclusive!! Rumor has it that the phone will be branded the Droid Prime however this is certainly not fact yet. First off the Droid Bionic is releasing very soon and Verizon does not make a habit of dropping multiple flagship "Droid" branded phones that close together. Second is the fact that this has long been rumored to be a Nexus Device, calling the phone the Droid Prime would make it a Verizon exclusive(and we know the ICS Nexus will be on other carriers). Maybe there is another Nexus device lurking out there? More likely we are jumping the gun on the name of this phone and it will settle out to be the Nexus Prime. This phone will be packing some serious specs and looks to do battle with the Iphone 5 on Verizon since they will be dropping at about the same time. With both of these phones both Verizon and the customers win as they will have the pick of the best the Android and iOS has to offer right now. The real question for us Verizon Android users is will this phone bring us the stock Android experience (which if it is a Nexus device it should be stock android) or will it be skinned in Touchwiz and crammed with the usual Big Red bloat? Here's to hoping Big Red leaves this phone in its stock Android state. Either way it looks like all of us on Verizon will get the first crack at the very best that Samsung and Android have to offer this year and that should make for some very happy campers in Big Reds camp!

Purple EVO 3D On The Way

So I reported early last week that a white version of my favorite smart phone would be coming to the shack. Well it appears that HTC wants to push the envelope and further differentiate their handsets from the rest of the pack with wild colors. Color is an important choice to have for some folks and though Black and White is what we are used to being offered how about purple? Well BestBuy will be getting the purple version of the super phone very soon. Keep in mind this is the future of HTC hardware several phones will be coming in some unique and wild colors another way to customize your experience. I love choices... give me more.

Lenovo Ideapad K Review

Well i have spent quite a few days with the Lenovo Idepad and Honeycomb (Android 3.1) and I think I'm finally ready to give my opinion on what is exactly right and what is exactly wrong with the Ideapad K. It should be noted I was slow to get a tablet. Mostly because I couldn't make up my mind and also in part because I just wasn't sold on the usefulness of one of the things when considering the bundle of money they are asking you to drop to get your hands on one.

I chose Ideapad K for the reason that most people would have left it on the shelf. The fact that it's rather early in the tablet's life cycle actually was a plus to me. I'm a fan of Lenovo's products and I would rather gamble on what they will do than pick the lackluster tablets that are already established aside from the Asus Eepad. Most looks i saw at the tablet previous to buying it did not do it a lot of justice. The main complaint that I have with the tab is the software needs an update desperately. A lot of the problems are the ones I see inherent with Android 3.1 and I can only imagine what 3.0 was like. The tablet decides to reboot occasionally on it's own which is not so bad because it takes about 1 second to boot back to a useable state, however if your working on something this could ruin your line of thought and cost you progress on important work. I am confident Lenovo has software updates in the works and they have already released one that I installed upon removing the tablet from the box. I do not want to put a lot of weight on this aspect of the tablet and that is why i placed it at the beginning of the review. Small gripe that doesn't occur often enough to be a frustration.

The 10 inch Ideapad weighs in at 1.65 pounds which is considered a little hefty in the tablet world. I don't find this complaint valid. I think it feels great in the hand especially with the lenoveesque soft touch back which actually makes it look quite a bit like the ideapad branded notebooks. I heard complaints about sound but in the 32 GB version that I have the sound is actually excellent.
The grip the back provided is sufficient though not the best and it comes in different colors mine being charcoal grey as you can see there in the image. I won't spend a lot of time on camera here. Who buys a tablet to take pictures. The camera was standard I actually didn't think some of the shots i was able to get from its rear facing 5MP camera were half bad.


I don't call the software packed with the Ideapad bloatware it hardly gets in the way and cab be uninstalled. The one most worthy of note was social touch which aggregates the calendar, email, facebook and twitter in one easy to use app. It has some aesthetic value for sure but a few changes are in order to make it a totally useful application. I use it daily myself. Bottom line the Ideapad comes packed with some great software to get you started. If you like the stock android gallery and etc simply remove Lenovo's and for the record the e reader they pack in is quite useless. The 4GB of free storage from ArcSynch was a nice touch.

The Verdict

The Ideapad gives a decent Honeycomb experience and it's quite early in the game (less than a week) to be overly critical of the tab. It has all the things you'd expect. There is a fairly thick level of bezel around the screen and at the top the front facing camera is easy to see. On the left side you will find the mic hole, power button, volume rocker, and sd card slot. On the bottom is the HDMI out and 3.5 mm headphone jack. Unfortunately the power supply plugs in here which is annoying at times. One of my favorite coolness factor things on the right side of the tablet is a home button which for a while i thought served very little purpose in reality this is a touchpad! Swiping down is like hitting the back button and swiping up pulls up settings menus in most apps. Press the key and it takes you back to the default home screen. This feature actually comes in handy when your holding the tablet in your hand and doing things because you don't have to remove a hand from the tablet to hit honeycomb's onscreen back button. Nice touch.

Lenovo has simplified Honeycomb and overall I'm quite impressed. I was able to find a 32 GB version for 450$ you can't beat that anywhere. The one i'm reviewing here at a 32 GB hard drive and i must say this tablet is a worthy contender. We will see what Lenovo does in the software update that takes this tablet to 3.2 and we think this is a great first run leading up to it's bigger brother the Lenovo Thinkpad. The 9 hours of battery life I get was sufficient for me as well as the overall attractiveness. I don't really need a USB port but if you do look elsewhere. Very nice tablet for the money overall. I'm waiting on the HTC Puccini and I will be using this one everyday in the meantime. Overall a very good tablet lets just hope the the developer community takes notice because when they do I think they will find a beast within.

Samsung to Unveil LTE Goodness at IFA!!!

Samsung has a full house of LTE!!!!

IFA is one of the largest consumer electronic shows of the year. The show is running from Sept 2nd untill the 7th. Samsung as already revealed that they will be making a rather large announcement at this show as we reported here. Now it seems that Samsung has showed it's hand a few days early! Read on to see what is in store for us!

A few days ago I reported that Verizon will not be releasing the GSII along with every other carrier in the United States. Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T will all be releasing versions at about the same time while Verizon will be left out of the party. However it seems that this phone might be too good to pass up. Samsung has announced a beefed up version of the GSII that is not only packing a 4G LTE radio but will also come with upgraded a dual core processor on board. The GSII will be shipping with a Samsung sourced 1.2GHz dualcore processor. This new version will be rocking a 1.5GHz dualcore chipset in addition to the speeds that LTE can deliver. A recent leak showed off a 4G LTE equipped GSII in Korea called the Celox, might this be the phone we speak of or could it be mysterious Samsung Stratosphere or just maybe the Nexus Prime??

The other big announcement is that the 8.9" Galaxy Tab is finally being announced and with LTE radio to boot!! Not only is the new 8" tab packing 4G but it also is going to be shipping with the 1.5GHz dualcore chipset. This tablet will slot in place very nicely between the 7" and 10" Galaxy Tabs and should be a shoo in for a Verizon release with the 4G LTE radio all on board. All that is left to do now is wait and see what Samsung has to say in the official announcement later this week. One this is for sure, this week is looking bright for Android fans!!!

Verizon Galaxy S II Cancelled???

The Samsung Galaxy S II has been one of the most highly anticipated of the year. Samsung released the first Galaxy series of phones across all carriers in slightly different form factors. It was assumed that the same process would be followed with the release of the GSII. We all know what happens when you assume something and it seems this has been proven true again.

Today the Wall Street Journal broke a story that confidential sources informed them that the GSII would NOT be releasing on Verizon. A Verizon spokeswoman named Brenda Raney came forward to confirm this news. Brenda had this to say,

“We have an extensive portfolio that offers customers a great variety of devices, including the Samsung Droid Charge,” said Brenda Raney, a Verizon Wireless spokeswoman. She declined to elaborate.

While the Droid Charge is not quite the GSII( I own one so I can back this up) she does have a point. Verizon has been releasing Android phones like Gangbusters (Droid Charge,Droid X2,Droid 3, LG Revolution, Etc) and with all reports pointing to the fact that Verizon will be finally getting a Nexus device in the form of the Prime maybe they felt the lineup was too crowded. Either way it seems that all of you out there sitting on your upgrade will have to jump on the Bionic( if that ever drops) or wait for the glut of phones coming to us this holiday season. Let us know what you think about it in the comments below.

New HTC Sense 3.5 Leaked!!!

HTC Sense is one of the many custom Android overlays and many will agree its one of the most aesthetically pleasing and complete of any out there.  From the ease of use to the cohesiveness of the design Sense just works in ways that Touchwiz or Motoblur do not.  Today the new version 3.5 has leaked by XDA China and is proving quite a feast for the eyes.

First up the lockscreen looks to be the updated one from Sense 3.0 which is a good thing seeing how much you can customize it. Alot of the widgets have been updated such as the weather which now covers the whole screen. The homescreen is sporting a cleaner look with two buttons at the bottom, one for apps and one for the phone. The biggest news from this leak will affect many HTC phone owners. When Sense 3.0 released many were disappointed to find out that they would not receive the update due to a dualcore processor being required to run 3.0. HTC will be bringing a smile to many faces with the news that 3.5 will not have any hardware constrictions so the benefits from this update should trickle down to everyone. Screenshots are below, all you HTC users sounds off in the comments and let us know what you think!

BlackBerry To Make Their Devices Android Compatible

Hey RIM, I guess the saying is right: "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em." RIM may be adding Android App capability to their upcoming devices. Well it's about time you started thinking logically RIM. Although there are many die-hard Blackberry users that swear by them, the compatibility is only available with other Blackberry users. This leaves them out of the loop on a lot of apps considering that BlackBerry App World doesn't have nearly as many apps as Android or Apple. The first device to get the compatibility is rumored to be the QNX-powered Play Book at the end of the year. There is no word of whether or not the upcoming devices will share this same compatibility. My theory is if RIM wants to stay above the rim, they need to put their pride down and realize that they can't make it out here in the phone game with a track ball and a messenger.

Lenovo Ideapad K1 Unboxed

Well I have had a pretty great morning folks. First I tore open my Sony Google TV which is updating right now. Then I got my Lenovo Ideapad K1 and taped an unboxing. Right now I can say only a few things about this tablet. One, It's sexy. A really attractive piece of equipment and by far the one I prefer aesthetically of all the tablets. Two it's snappy, I love the speed and im installing a system update now that has various improvements packed in. Three: It's a Lenovo which means it has a promising future. I don't think rooting is a huge deal for a tablet but I still dream of root access and getting some custom stuff booted up. Until such time we will be giving you a closer look at what this tablet is all about as well as expanding our coverage of Honeycomb as an operating system. Well my Sony Google TV is booting up got to go check that out. Talk to you guys later

The New Girl's Best Friend Is The HTC Bliss

A phone dedicated to the female you say? For the average female, this phone is exactly what they are looking for. Small, quaint, wallpapers and apps that are pink and feathery. The HTC Bliss is to come to Verizon in a few choices of colors unlike the standard black/grey that the majority of Android devices come in. Still unclear if this is device will hold a 3.7-inch or 4-inch screen but it will come with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and HTC Sense 3.5 with a processor running at 800MHz. Now for the tech savvy female who isn’t in it for the looks of a device, but the quality and ability to perform at the highest of standards, you might want to just wait on the fourth quarter. And as a tech savvy female I don’t see the appeal of this phone. There is rumored schedule release date of October 14, but we’ll find out what HTC really has up their sleeve for this device at their event on September 1.

Samsung Staying One Step Ahead of the Apple Patent Troll!!

I have been covering the ongoing Patent battle in Europe between Samsung and Apple here on our blog and today Apple got a major push. A judge in the Netherlands has ruled that Samsung as violated one of the patents that Apple is claiming, namely patent 2,059,868. This patent has to do with the photo management system and gallery scrolling. The judge has hereby banned sales of the Galaxy S, Galaxy S II and Ace phones. The good news in all of this madness is that the judge did not feel that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 violated any of the patents Apple claimed it did and the sales of this device will not be blocked. Now this sounds like the end of sales of the Galaxy phones right? Wrong! Unlike the ban in Germany the Netherlands court ruling gives Samsung a chance to respond. Sammy is going to keep selling phones just as fast as they have been and will simply push out a software update that will change the photo gallery scolling system just enough to stay ahead of the Apple Patent Troll. I am sure that Apple will come up with something else but with the Dutch judge declaring that a large number of their patent claims are invalid they will have to think up another plan for attack.

If you have been following our blog you know that Kidromulous and I are eagerly anticipating the release of the HTC Puccini, you can read about it here and here. Now thanks to a leak on Engadget we have pictures and spec confirmations for you and all I can say is WOW!

The Puccini will be coming to AT&T very soon, it is already in testing and will drop before the end of the year. The big news of course is this little logo on the back. The Puccini will be the first tablet on AT&T that sports a 4G LTE radio for their brand new network.

This tablet will also be sporting specs in line with what we reported to you already. The Puccini will sport a 1.5GHz dualcore Snapdragon processor, Android Honeycomb OS, an 8MP rear camera with flash, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, and a 10" screen. Now if you are on AT&T and in the market for a tablet, i don't think it is going to get any better then this!!

Samsung Reveals New Phones and Naming System

With IFA rapidly approaching Samsung has leaked both a new naming system for their phones and a whole crop of devices with Gingerbread goodness. Read on for more.

Once of the big issues with Android is name and device confusion. When the average smartphone consumer walks into the store they are greeted with a multitude of devices with all levels of performance. Samsung is seeking to reduce this confusion with their new system. Here is how it is shaping up along with some upcoming phones.

First up is S class. The S stands for Super Smart and will include Sammy's top tier devices such as the Galaxy S II and phones from its popular Galaxy S series.

Next is the R class. Royal/Refined is the adjective assigned to this class and will be a premium balance of power, performance and quality.

The W (Wonder) class is next on the list and will be high quality strategic models. The upcoming phone in this class is one of the more impressive. The Galaxy W will sport a 1.4GHz processor, 3.7" screen, Gingerbread and will be preloaded with Samsung's social and music hubs.

Following the W class will be the M(Magical) class of Galaxy phones. The M Pro will be geared towards young professionals. It will sport a 1GHz processor, 2.66" screen, Gingerbread, 5MP rear facing camera w/ front facing as well. The M Pro will come with Exchange Active Sync and CISCO Mobile and WebEx support for business use. It will also have a full QWERTY keyboard and optical trackpad for ease of use.

Finally there will be the Y (Youth) class. These phones will be aimed at young people and will carry entry level specs. The Galaxy Y will have an 800 MHz processor, 3" screen, 2MP camera and WiFi. It will come with a range of social applications preinstalled and Swype keyboard for ease of use among today's youth. There will also be a Galaxy Y Pro with full QWERTY keyboard for those who prefer this form factor. It looks like Samsung will be dropping all kinds of Android in the upcoming months so keep your eyes peeled for this crop of phones!

AT&T Owners Get Ready for Some Android!!!

So we know that Samsung has leaked a large roadmap of the phones coming up this year here. However, now if you are on AT&T you are about to get a preview of the rest of the year, and it looks like a good holiday season! There are the usual crop of Windows phones that noone will buy and Blackberry's that don't matter anymore combined with ALOT of Android. So lets take a look and see what is in the pipeline.

First up is the Samsung Singa which lines up to be AT&T's version of the Galaxy S II, labeled the Attain. The other Sammy device should be either the just leaked Impluse( the first 4G LTE phone on AT&T) or the leaked Galaxy Series slider that we say a while back. Next up to look at is a Motorola phone labeled the Fuath. A few weeks ago pictures and this name popped up in a leak for the Atrix sequel dubbed the Atrix HD. The Atrix HD looks to be a brother to the fabled Droid Bionic and will have a curved glass HD display, larger screen, 8MP camera and 4G LTE as well. There are a smattering of Pantech and Huawei phones which could be low to mid end phones. However don't forget the Pantech leaks from earlier in the year show one of their phones packing the same chipset as the Evo 3D so don't count out a Superphone. All in all the Holiday Season will be very merry if you are an Android fan with AT&T!!

White EVO 3D Coming To The Shack

If you haven't heard Radio Shack announced that the HTC EVO 3D would be coming in white. I know, I know you knew this was coming you just didn't know when. Well when is September 9th. This same thing happened with my beloved OG HTC EVO and I certainly was one of the folks that made the leap to the white edition. By white this means they are totally whiting the phone out even the trademark red camera accents will get the white treatment on this bad boy. As if the HTC EVO 3D isn't popular enough you can look for these to move out like hot cakes. No the Samsung Epic Touch is not on my shopping list I'm perfectly happy with the 3VO. Now if you will excuse me I'm going back to gazing at that beautiful picture up there. Can't wait!

Download: Google Updates Android Market Brings Big Changes

Get Your Market Here Folks!

One of the things I love to see updated is the Android Market and though several notable changes have been made since it made it to version 3.0, now we have some of the biggest changes yet with the addition of the plus one button. Now if you really love an app there is an another way to give it the thumbs up than writing a review that is likely to never be read by anyone. What you may be noticing is Google is making an effort to proliferate the plus platform and the plus one button across the web and backed by Google Search that is no small thing. New security features are another big change as one can now add a pin to their market account. Several design aesthetics have been added as well: new icon, and click to read permissions. Hope you guys enjoy you don't to go any further than the download link below. (taking care of my folks at work right now!)
