SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: November 30 2010

SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: November 30 2010

You sassafrass you, NOOKcolor! Last night we spoke about how NOOKcolor had been rooted and presented to you the final chapter in our "A Week With" reviews of that device, but what's this?! I snuck another one in on ya! A Week with NOOKcolor: The Missing Link – Viewing Manually Loaded Books and What a Root Means for the Future. Then there's news about how NOOKcolor saved B&N's butt financially this year, and the iPad responds with a magazine - it's got TRON on it! Maybe not a direct response, and I know it's released by Richard Branson, but, you know, but I don't think iPad is worried about the B&N competition. Then we've got some Farmville news and some NASA news about what might be aliens - this expressing the range of information we present here at the R3 Media Network. ALL THIS AND MORE on the SlashGear Morning Wrap-up!

Sprint Q3 2010 finances out: subscribers up but still $911m net loss

Sprint Q3 2010 finances out: subscribers up but still $911m net loss

Sprint is the latest US carrier to report its Q3 2010 financial results, and while they still lag behind Verizon and AT&T in terms of sheer numbers, it's a solid quarter for the CDMA network.  That's solid in terms of previous years, of course; Sprint still managed a net loss of $911m on net operating revenues of almost $8.2 billion, but at least they added 644,000 subscribers (the biggest number since 2006).

Sprint 4G spreads: 48 areas now with WiMAX

Sprint 4G spreads: 48 areas now with WiMAX

We already know that Sprint are looking to 4G to salve their fortunes, and so news that the WiMAX network is spreading can only be a good thing for investors and for data-hungry users.  Fresh to feel the warm touch of 4G on their skin are Modesto and Stockton, California; Jacksonville, Florida, Wilmington, Delaware; and Grand Rapids, Michigan.

That now makes forty-eight metropolitan areas with WiMAX coverage - the full list is in the press release below - and Sprint reckon subscribers will see up to ten-times the performance of a regular 3G connection.

T-Mobile USA HSPA+ network overtakes rivals with 4G speed reach

T-Mobile USA HSPA+ network overtakes rivals with 4G speed reach

"You snooze, you lose" may not be the most eloquent way of putting it, but Sprint CEO Dan Hesse knows that the longer it takes to get customers onto shiny devices like the EVO 4G, the more chance his carrier rivals have to overtake him in high-speed mobile networks.  T-Mobile USA has just announced that their HSPA+ network is now the most pervasive in the country, currently covering more than 85m people and on track, the carrier promises, to offer HSPA+ to over 185m people by the end of 2010.

Sprint 4G spreads: WiMAX in 43 areas, New York by end of 2010

Sprint 4G spreads: WiMAX in 43 areas, New York by end of 2010

The flagship device to use it may be rarer than hens' teeth but that hasn't stopped Sprint from pushing 4G market growth, with seven new metropolitan areas getting access to the WiMAX goodness.  Rochester, N.Y., Syracuse, N.Y., Merced, Calif., Visalia, Calif., Eugene, Ore., Tri-Cities, Wash., and Yakima, Wash. take Sprint's coverage to 43 markets, though there's still a significant absence in high-profile areas like NYC.  According to Sprint's Dan Hesse, New York should see WiMAX arrive by the end of 2010.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 10 2010

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 10 2010

Hello geeks and geekettes and welcome to the latest SlashGear Week in Review! Early this week we saw the iTable. I reckon that the iTable is sort of like an iPad, with legs, that can hold your beer and pizza while you play Farmville. If Professor X lived in the world of Bioshock, this steampunk power wheel chair would be his ride. The thing even dispenses your adult beverages after piping the booze through an ice chiller.

Enough Already with the Subsidized Netbooks!

Enough Already with the Subsidized Netbooks!

With the holidays fast approaching cell phone carriers are stocking up on inventory and amongst the new Motorola DROIDs, HTC Heroes, and Palm Pixies are a slightly larger, yet unfamiliar crop of devices – netbooks. AT&T is all giddy about its exclusive availability of the Nokia Booklet 3G and Sprint announced just yesterday that it will be selling the Dell Inspiron Mini 10V. Verizon already has three netbooks in its arsenal, including HP’s new powerful Mini 311. Clearly, lining up the selection isn’t a problem, but what the carriers haven’t figured out yet is that selling netbooks requires a totally different approach than selling phones. The deals and the subsidized model, in my mind, make as much sense for netbooks as building and then plowing a virtual Farmville farm!

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 30 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 30 2009

Well another week has come and gone as time steadily marches on and like every other week here on SlashGear, it has been a busy one. Poor old Toshiba took the old adage "if you can’t beat them, join them" seriously on Monday and announced that it would be launching its own Blu-ray player by the end of 2009. That had to be hard to swallow for the execs who bet it all on HD DVD only to be defeated by Blu-ray. Also on Monday the slick HP Mini 5101 netbooks tipped up starting from $399. I'm not convinced we need another netbook on the market right now personally.
