According to AT&T Mobility CEO Ralph de la Verga the upcoming 4G/LTE devices will be a lot better for your battery. Instead of using separate (and separately powered) radio chips for 4G and 3G, they will use a single chip that utilizes strictly LTE until you are out of range, then switch over to a 3G radio. He calls this technology “circuit switch fallback” and … Continue reading AT&T: LTE phones will sip, not chug, your battery.

Questions are being flung left and right but answers are limited, if they even exist at all. What happened to the Sprint deal we’ve been hearing about for years? Will the FCC and anti-trust regulators even let this happen? Who was phone?

A reporter asked if “the CDMA iPhone exclusive to Verizon” in which Apple’s Tim Cook replied “It’s a multi-year, non exclusive deal.” Two things struck me as interesting with this, the first being that the reporter specifically stated CDMA iPhone and that Tim Cook replied that it was a non-exclusive deal, obviously pertaining to that CDMA iPhone. Does that mean we should expect a Sprint iPhone soon? Continue reading “Does this mean Sprint is getting the iPhone?”
