AT&T MiFi Liberate mobile hotspot Review

AT&T MiFi Liberate mobile hotspot Review

With the AT&T MiFi Liberate you've got what's straight up the most advanced mobile hotspot on the planet, complete with a full-color touchscreen, microSD card storage, and DLNA connectivity. This machine is unique in its abilities as well as its physical state, it sitting upright like a tiny folded-over book of notes with AT&T's 4G LTE network under the hood. The hardware here was created by Novatel Wireless and the network is all AT&T, and as this is just one of two AT&T hotspots on the market at the moment, you'll find that the few features it hold above the head of its brethren do indeed make it worth the extra few bucks you'll be paying right out the gate.

Google Maps vs Apple Maps hands-on to the airport

When faced with the idea that either Apple's Maps solution or Google's Maps solution might be better at everyday situations here on the first day when both are available for use on the iPhone, we decided to put them up to the test. The test in this case was getting from here (at a hotel in Saint Paul) to the Minneapolis International Airport, deciding as we do so what constitutes a more effective set of controls.

DROID RAZR M Review

DROID RAZR M Review

The DROID RAZR M was revealed at the event where Googler and relatively new CEO of Motorola Dennis Woodside spoke about the "new plan" for the company - a plan that's starting right here. We got a brief DROID RAZR M hands-on experience at the event and found that it was a surprisingly powerful-feeling device for its status under the DROID RAZR HD devices sitting nearby. With its near-edge-to-edge 4.3-inch display, it's tried-and-true fabulously powerful dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor under the hood, and a collection of protective elements throughout this device's chassis that make it, again, an ideal phone for today's mobile landscape - just as the original DROID RAZR should have been (and still is, for many happy users, to be fair).

Verizon Wireless Jetpack 890L 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot Review

Verizon Wireless Jetpack 890L 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot Review

Compared to the Jetpack MiFi 4620L mobile hotspot we just reviewed at the beginning of May, this 890L 4G LTE model isn't all that unique. It connects to Verizon's 4G LTE network just as well as the 4620, has a similar lovely little display for you to monitor how many people are connected, your connection strength, and software updates - and you're working with the same data plan costs as well. The 4620L is made by Novatel Wireless while the 890L is made by ZTE - beyond that, what differences are there?

Have a peek at dive in!
