By: t-marco March 7th, 2012

T-Mobile USA and Sprint  called on federal regulators to suspend an informal 180-day review period of Verizon Wireless’s bid for $3.9 billion worth of wireless airwaves from a group of cable-television companies.

In a letter written to the FCC, the companies and groups said that the FCC needed to force Verizon to submit unredacted documents that include information on “pricing, compensation and marketing strategies” that they say are needed for the FCC to make an informed decision on whether to allow the deal to go through.

Next Generation iPad Set To Run 3G on T-Mobile’s

By: t-marco November 22nd, 2010

The next generation iPad is suppose to arrive early next next, maybe Q1 2011. The new iPad model will  run on both the GSM and CDMA based networks around the globe. This would allow the iPad to pick up 3G connectivity with virtually every major phone carrier here in the US, Europe, South America, and Asia

No wonder Rupert Murdoch is teaming up with Apple for an iPad only newspaper called Daily. At only $0.99 cents a week, the global reach of the Daily could be substantial.

Anyway, the next generation iPad with its CDMA and GSM will be capable of running off the 3G networks of T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint, here within the United States.

The new system is being designed and built to include strong security and privacy safeguards.

Google Nexus Two is real … with Galaxy S flavor

By: t-marco October 29th, 2010

Gizmodo got some information about the new Google phone, Nexux Two. This time will not be made my HTC, it will be Samsung with a Galaxy S look.

“It’s black and shiny, built with glossy plastic. Up close, though, it’s “got this curve to it.” While the screen, which our source thinks is the same 4-inch AMOLED affair from the Galaxy series, is flat, the front is “sort of concave” with hard edges. And the back is curved. The tapering makes it feel thinner than Galaxy S, though it might be about the same thickness. “It feels really similar to the Galaxy S in a lot ways.”

Externally, the main difference from all of the current Galaxy S variants in the US is that it’s got a front-facing camera, and it’s running a stock build of Android that was still “really buggy.”

Android Market expands international paid applications

By: t-marco October 1st, 2010
Google has just  expanded Android Market paid app sales to 20 new international markets, promising to add another 18 countries over the next two weeks. According to Android Developer Ecosystem manager Eric Chu, support for paid apps now spans across nations including Canada, Russia, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, South Korea and Taiwan.

Originally nine countries were allowed to market paid android Apps. These original nations included Italy, France, Japan, Netherlands, UK, Spain, Germany, and Austria and needless to say, the United States of America.

But here is the trick, if you live out of those countries and you want to get paid applications, you only need to do is get a sim card from one of those countries (don’t worry if the phone number of the sim card does not work). Market only sees the country code of the sim card to give you access to paid applications. I did it and works the same, just make sure after installing all the paid applications you want, switch back to your own sim card.
Enjoy!
