Comcast may be another company eyeing a bid for T-Mobile

Comcast

We’re still dealing with Comcast’s proposed merger with Time Warner, and it looks like the cable giant is considering making a bid for T-Mobile, too. Analysts seem to believe that with AT&T buying DirecTV, the pressure that will be put on Comcast to match video delivery will finally tip them into jumping into the wireless industry. In the short term, Comcast may pursue WiFi-MNVO deals, such as reselling Verizon airspace. Long-term, though, that’s not going to be very profitable for a company as large as Comcast, which is where purchasing T-Mobile comes in. Read more

Encased LG G3 T-Mobile developer edition photos leak

LG G3

We’ve already seen a ton of leaks of the LG G3, so what could another few pictures hurt? The latest pics show off the device in a “lunchboxed” case that is supposedly to help keep the design of the device from leaking. If this was one of the first leaks we’d seen, that might help, but with the G3 leaking at least once a week, we’ve already seen just about everything there is to see about it. Read more

DROID_Ultra_Boot_Screen_Motorola_Logo_Google_Company

No one should be surprised that the upcoming Motorola Moto X+1 will be carried by Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint in the United States. Last year, Motorola made sure the Moto X was available on each of these carriers in addition to some smaller ones. But the Moto X+1 also popped up on Motorola’s very own site a few times already. So aside from learning once again that the United States’ largest carriers would be picking up the handset, we have learned its codename: Victara.

What do you think Victara stands for, if anything?

T-Mobile LG G Flex receiving update today; It may or may not be KitKat

gsmarena_001 (1)

Today T-Mobile is supposedly rolling out the KitKat OTA update for their LG G Flex device. Problem is, is it even KitKat? According to the source link below, it shows Android 4.2.2 as the software. At first I thought it may just be a typo, but the file size is a mere 149MB’s. Seems a little low considering the G2’s KitKat file was about 1.5GB’s in total. Of course, these are just my speculations. Also, it seems users from XDA are reporting that the update has been pulled with no reason given.

If you have a T-Mobile G Flex, have you gotten the update notification today? And if so, is it KitKat?
