AT&T Unite 4G LTE mobile hotspot keeps the touchscreen flame strong

It's time once again to bust out with Sierra Wireless as they manufacture another mobile hotspot with a touchscreen, again this time for AT&T's 4G LTE data network. This machine works with a 2.4-inch touchscreen display and, like the Mifi Liberate we just reviewed, it can connect to up to 10 wi-fi-loving devices at once. This machine works with an on-screen meter so you can see how much data you're using at a given time and makes the whole process as user-friendly as possible.

Motorola DROID RAZR M HD leaked with details

A few details have been leaked by an anonymous tipster as to what the next-generation DROID RAZR M will be, building on the greatness of the already fabulous palm-sized beast. We had our first look at the original DROID RAZR M earlier this year in NYC, the reveal event also playing host to one of the first public showings of a newly minted Google-owned Motorola, complete with Google-minded software choices for Android - like on-screen buttons, for example. Here we're seeing the logical next step for the DROID RAZR M with an "HD" name addition, but the specifications we're seeing aren't quite as solid as we'd hope - not logically, that is.

Samsung ATIV Smart PC Review

Samsung ATIV Smart PC Review

When a mobile carrier like AT&T picks up a device for sale that's as massive as the Samsung ATIV Smart PC with Windows 8, you've got to wonder who would be heading out to the same location they picked up their smartphone to pick up a PC. In this case it's more of a cross-over situation in which AT&T already carries tablets, and is here easing the public into the idea that they're going to be holding larger PC machines with a half-and-half beast like the Samsung ATIV Smart PC, itself a convertible tablet that can also be a notebook when you pick up the right docking accessory. At the moment we're limited to the tablet bit as the two are sold separately and the lower piece isn't up at AT&T quite yet.

ZTE Grand Era LTE revealed with dual-mode LTE

This week the ZTE Grand Era LTE has been revealed in Hong Kong with no less than the ability to connect to two different kinds of 4G LTE mobile data. This machine works with China Mobile Hong Kong's first commercial converged TD-LTE / LTE FDD network - but there's a hitch to this dual-connecting beast. Before we get to that though, it's all about the specifications: a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM under a 4.5-inch 1280 x 720 pixel resolution display with Gorilla Glass up front for hardcore scratch resistance.
