Re: Take away
I wholeheartedly agree with both of your points.
Good news that makes sense
As the Subject says. The buyer is a GSM company, that will not reduce the number of carriers in the US. This should make everyone involved happy, including Sprint customers. Maybe not Sprint board of directors.
Re: Sprint finally catching up to T-mobile.
Does this mean no more need for Airave?
Kids can manage with grown-up phones, seniors need help
Even a 4-year-old can manage an Android device, often better than a grown-up. I think this phone should be marketed to seniors instead. Impaired vision and hearing, arthritis, etc., seniors need easy to use phones. Not to mention, today's seniors did not grow up with computers.
In Europe and Asia the cell phone voice quality is crystal clear. In the US voice is muffled due to the carriers compressing the sound down to 8k. We've put up with and came to accept this inferior sound. We need quality voice on our cell phones.
e911 is not new, but it is very welcome to cellular technilogy. Hopefully this will also imply better service in dwellings, and not a new way of spying on citizens.
There is hope that common sense and the benefit of the community will win over monopoly (duopoly) and corporate greed.
I guess phones would come with a secret and unique reactivation code and/or a title, like a vehicle.
Surprised and Clueless
"... they were surprised by the level of skepticism for the deal." This shows how clueless they are about their own field.
Re: At home
It is just one type of ballast GE made at one factory for a short time. All others are OK. If they weren't OK, the carriers would complain they cannot receive cell phone signals with their site antennas.
Re: Hydrogen on top of buildings?
Verizon Wireless uses natural gas for their rooftop generators. How is Sprint hoping to re-fuel their generators, whether they are diesel or fuel-cell? What if the outage lasts days or weeks, roads are inaccessable, or no fuel available, like a year ago in New York City after Hurricane Sandy?
Re: Hydrogen on top of buildings?
I whole-heartedly agree, my friend, you summed them up beautifully!
Re: Why Huawei?
Huawei was accused of spying, and not allowed to sell cards for US cellular sites to my best knowledge. I doubt they would be allowed to be a tech operator like Ericsson.
That's right. Who is going to look out for the consumers and smaller companies? Now Verizon has the green light to split the Internet. There could be a faster more expensive internet with some companies on it, and a slower less expensive internet with other companies on it. If you want to get to the premium internet, have to pay Verizon a fee. This is wrong, the courts are wrong, and it seems the ...
Re: No thanks
T-Mobile is as incompetent as Sprint, if not more. Verizon Wireless is the only competent wireless network, but they nickel you for their service, they are overpriced, and hit you with wrong billing that you will dispute until the end of your natural life. Sprint is once again thinking to buy another carrier with incompatible technology. Nextel 2014. Why not invest in proper LTE instead, with proper fiber backhaul instead of microwave, natural gas generators for power ...
How do you tell apart the old GS4 from the new?
Re: What an innovative phone
Oppo has been making some of the best Blu-ray players for some time. They are not unknown.
This shows how MS is a marketing company, and is pretty incompetent when it comes to software.
Actually, the linked article states "at least $100", so it may be a great deal for consumers.
Sorry to see him go
Chair Genachowski has been the best the agency ever had. He made many excellent decisions and had a superb vision for the future. His smartness and judgement will be missed.
Re: About time
Works in Stockholm too. NYC is way behind.
Washington DC and the rest of the World's civilization has had subway mobile service for decades.
Re: The Apple Copyright Enforcement Task Force scores again
It may be good for HTC also, not having to spend time, money, and energy for possible lawsuits. This way they can focus on technology and business.
Best article ever!
Everything I was always afraid to ask -- right here. Kudos Eric Zeman!
I think they don't have enough competition or regulation. Why should they be allowed to sell the same service multiple times? Once when you get "unlimited" data, and the second time when you want to use that data for tethering.
Re: How does it work?
I don't know how this works, nor do I care, because I don't think this change on FB is NEWSWORTHY.
Re: "With Sprint, Anyone Can Launch an MVNO"
Why would anyone want to rebrand this, and offer it to a customer as brand-x, when it can be sold as Sprint, a brand name that everyone is familiar with?
Re: Patients were made to protect property and ideas...
They should not issue patents for stupid stuff like searching in two places, instead of one. How come the car companies are not suing each other, yet the cars look more and more like each other. The phones, like the cars, should benefit from what works, the wisdom of the community. And then the consumers and manufacturers benefit too.
Re: Your secret data...
Why not just write it on a paper, or better yet, keep it in your mind and don't tell anyone. http://www.phonescoop.com/articles/d iscuss.php?fm=m&ff=10625&fi=3140588#
I guess radiation decreased
In 1996 there were more powerful cellphones, up to 3 watts of transmitting power. Today I think it's 0.5 Watts. So my guess is that the radiation decreased over time. I am curious what facts the FCC will find.
Re: Apple is the worst abuser
Thank you for clarifying this.
Apple is the worst abuser
If they just limited Apple's use of import ban, it would have the same effect. Apple to import ban is what Ed McMahon was to junkmail.
Lee Kun-hee's son, Jay Y. Lee
What is it, a family owned and operated business? :lol:
Re: SIM card?
It will definitely have to have a sim card slot for this to work. Hopefully the Sprint version will have GSM support as well. These might be the first top-of-the-line Android phones on CDMA that also support global GSM, meaning global roaming. A huge deal.
Re: No 64GB version?
What's wrong with 16GB, it's a lot isn't it?
Re: "The company recently revealed
Not all of retail cost goes back to RIM. So it must be the price they get from their distributors.
Sprint seems to have the money
I'm beginning to think they can actually catch up with LTE. Great news.
Re: Wonder what
It may go into a tablet. LG may also produce a larger or smaller version in the future. I guess most people cannot tell the pixels apart at those sizes, as they are too small. So what is the point of making a display so small with such high resolution?
Re: certain 2G technology
VZW and Sprint use similar technologies, so I bet it will benefit both. Hooray for in-building 4G!
Re: I think you misunderstood Andras888
Thank you for the link. It's mindbogling to have this crazyness for one little feature or patent out of thousands that go into each smartphone. And the problem wasn't even there. There needs to be a better way.
