T-Mobile and Nokia-Siemens will work getting up to 650 Mbps

By: t-marco December 15th, 2010
Nokia Siemens Networks and T-Mobile USA today outlined early plans for an extremely fast 3G format that could let them and any other provider get better-than-4G speeds. Long Term HSPA Evolution (LTHE) would boost performance from the 41Mbps of HSPA+ today to 650Mbps. That is really fast.  The speeds would fall short of the theoretical 1Gbps peak of LTE Advanced but should still reach a similar 100Mbps-plus in real conditions, giving future 4G speeds without the need to switch technologies altogether.
The upgrade is likely intended to help T-Mobile justify its existing network plans, which so far have focused on HSPA+  ( reaching so far up to 21Mbps and 41 next year) .  T-Mobile has struggled financially compared to AT&T and Verizon, both of which are implementing LTE and real 4G. The effort is here, but the point is T-Mobile is getting faster and faster, and the only who is going to be happy is the customer.

Facebook comes now with Chat and better push notifications

By: t-marco December 15th, 2010

Facebook released an update for its Android mobile application, now version 1.5. The new update will bring Facebook chat ( also available in the background) and better push notifications. I said better because some times I used to get some notifications.  Push notifications will only work on devices running Android 2.2 or higher, and the new build does, as always, include “various bug fixes.”Go to the Market and get the new update

T-Mobile promises HSPA+ tablets in 2011, maybe Android or iPad2

By: t-marco December 10th, 2010

Its Friday and T-Mobile just gave us some great news coming in 2011. The magenta company had announced that will carry, next year, a few HSPA+ tablets. TMO has not mention either when they will be available or what OS will be running. We believe some will run Android, Windows 7 or maybe iOS ( remember the new iPad 2 coming next year with AWS 3G bands). Maybe this beauty will land on T-MO soon. Cross your fingers.

“T-Mobile is working closely with the majority of our OEM partners to deliver 4G products by integrating HSPA+ into roadmaps in 2011 as the dominant global standard. Consumers will continue to see HSPA+ fuel future innovation in a variety of mobile consumer electronics from smartphones and tablets to emerging devices. T-Mobile will continue to be at the forefront of wireless innovation, delivering an aggressive 4G product lineup in 2011, including 4G tablets.”

Gingerbread or WM7 launcher.. you choose!

By: t-marco December 10th, 2010

First was Launcher Pro by Federico Cardenas, and now we have 2 more launcher choices. After Google announced the new Google Nexus S and Android 2.3 Gingerbread, pretty much everyone wants to update and get the latest OS. Thanks again to our friends from XDA, we can get the Gingerbread launcher now available on the Market. What is the difference  from the stock Android 2.2 launcher? It has colors. Are you fun of WM7?.i guess not but you can get now the WM7 theme on you Android. Just go to Market and find Windows Phone Android application, if you cant find it here is the apk to download. So far many have complain about this theme, no notifications, is buggy, does not run on all devices. If you want, give it a try. For my personal experience, and installed it, played for 2 minuted with it, then it’s gone..
