Shortly after leaking the AT&T model of HTC’s upcoming flagship smartphone, @evleaks posted Verizon’s. And this time around, the device is in gray. Verizon opted to put its logo on the back of the device like AT&T; however, Big Red also threw in its 4G LTE logo. Also, Verizon’s 4G LTE icon is present in the status bar. Nothing else has changed between this device and the one from the AT&T leak from before. Just stay tuned because there is a very good chance that we see the Sprint or T-Mobile models leak in gold.
As we get closer to its March 25 announcement in New York City, new information continues to surface about The all new HTC One. This time around, @evleaks gives us a look at the AT&T model of HTC’s 2014 flagship. It looks like the only truly noticeable branding is on the backside where AT&T has opted to stamp their logo. Also, the carrier has its 4G LTE icon in the status bar; however, that is a common change among all carriers.
Thanks to @evleaks over on Twitter, it looks like the recently announced LG L90 will be joining T-Mobile’s device lineup at some point. He tweeted the image above which is a press render of the L90 along with some T-Mobile branding on the backside.
From our previous post, here are the LG L90 specifications:
- 4.7-inch qHD IPS Display (qHD 960 x 540)
- Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 400 clocked at 1.2 GHz Quad-Core Processor with 512MB of RAM
- 8GB of memory
- 8MP rear camera / VGA front camera
- 3000mAh removable battery
- Android 4.4 KitKat
- 3G (HSPA+21Mbps)
Verizon took forever to get the Nexus 7, but it seems they will be considerably faster getting the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and LG Pad 8.3. According to a leaked document, the Note Pro 12.2 as well as the Pad 8.3 will arrive for Verizon users in just a few weeks, on March 6.
This obviously isn’t an official document, and things could still change from now until then, but it’s good to see that Verizon seems to have plans to get their users the Note Pro 12.2 within a month of its announcement.

AT&T has put a few more markets under their LTE umbrella, adding to their growing list of cities covered by their speedy 4G network. They didn’t add any huge new cities to the list, but hey, more coverage is never a bad thing. A total of 12 new markets got the green light, including the following markets below:
- Defiance & Bellefontaine, Ohio
- Greenwood & Seneca, South Carolina
- Lumberton, North Carolina
- Deridder, Louisiana
- Lebanon, Missouri
- Gainsville, Texas
- Anderson, Indiana
- Midland, Michigan
- Claremont, New Hampshire
- Bismark, North Dakota
About this time last year, an small uproar was sweeping over the Internet thanks to action taken by the Library of Congress to make unlocking cell phones illegal under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). The Library of Congress ruling took effect on January 26, 2013 and any cell phone purchased after that date cannot be unlocked, at least not legally. In response, an online petition was created on the White House web site and in a matter of days surpassed the 100,000 signature threshold triggering a response. President Obama responded as hoped, agreeing with the petition that consumers should have the freedom to unlock their devices. » Read the rest
Hop on board, the UnCarrier is about to take off.
T-Mobile CEO John Legere has done a great job talking up the merits of his company in recent months, and it seems to be working.
The re-branded mobile carrier was on a steep decline when Legere hopped on board, and he’s done an excellent job of turning the train around, as the company announced today that it added roughly 4.4 million customers in 2013.
With its UnCarrier, Jump and Simple Choice programs, it has made things a whole lot easier for customers, and the numbers prove it. Although the company lost $20 million in Q4, it added 1.6 million customers— the money should come back in the long term, though.
Excellent news for the carrier, and here’s to the hope that others take notice and follow suit. (Cough, cough, Verizon.)
Today, AT&T is making it much more affordable for customers to text and call internationally from the United States. Beginning Friday, all AT&T Mobile Share and Mobile Share Value plans will come with unlimited international texting from the U.S. In addition, AT&T is adding a $5-per-month package that allows subscribers to call any of 35 countries for a penny per minute. The 35 countries includes Canada and Mexico, as well as a multitude of Latin American and Caribbean countries.
This is clearly a response to T-Mobile, who cut international costs last year, and gave subscribers free texting and internet access internationally, as well as Verizon, who also cut international rates.
With all kinds of new mobile devices being announced at MWC 2014 and 4G LTE starting to push down into the mid-tier market, AT&T took the opportunity to announce the expansion of 4G LTE service to thirteen new countries around the globe. Outside of the U.S., AT&T already offered LTE data roaming in Canada and the U.K. AT&T said in their announcement that they are expanding their footprint to the following countries: » Read the rest
Just yesterday we reported that invites had started to go out to Moto X owners on the Verizon network inviting them to participate in a soak test presumably for the Android 4.2.2 update. Another step was taken by the carrier today indicating the update could be only days away from release as a support document for the KitKat update has been posted to the Verizon web site. The document indicates the update includes some security and stability enhancements, including better synchronization of some services; better roaming connectivity; improvements to battery life and Isis Mobile Wallet; and some Verizon app updates.
For those not participating in the soak test, your patience should be rewarded shortly.
