LG G Flex 2 to bring tri-band carrier aggregation to CES 2015

LG might be showcasing a ton of new electronics, particularly Smart TVs, next week at CES 2015, but at its mobile booth, the attention grabber will most likely be the odd G Flex 2, the successor to 2013's odd curved G Flex. But more than just the odd curved display that still has to prove its purpose in the market, the LG G Flex 2 is now rumored to bring yet another first to the table: the first 64-bit phone with tri-band carrier aggregation.

Verizon Ellipsis Jetpack mobile hotspot now available

Keeping your devices connected to the internet on the go can be hard to do if you aren't in an area with WiFi connectivity. If your devices lack onboard LTE, your only option is a smartphone that can share a data plan or a hotspot device that can give access by creating its own WiFi network. Verizon has rolled out a new hotspot that will do the job called the Ellipsis Jetpack MHS800L.

BLU Products unleashes new line with 4G LTE support

BLU has time and again outed several unlocked smartphones over the years, some even with enticing features and definitely enticing prices. But most of them sadly do not boast of 4G connectivity. Well, not anymore. These three new BLU smartphones do come with the LTE support you need for consuming lots of online data. And as an added bonus, these smartphones are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, instead of BLU's usual preference for the more affordable MediaTek line of mobile processors.

Verizon starts replacing 3G with 4G LTE

LTE is the direction we’re headed for mobile technology, which is great for high speed data transfer. It’s also where we are headed for voice, with VoLTE now rolling out via approved handsets. Verizon, a leader in 4G LTE, has begun testing the high speed signal over their 3G spectrum. The move also means the old CDMA standard is starting to disappear, which is a good sign the days carrier-locked handsets could go with it. So far, New York is the only market where this is known to be happening.

AT&T backs out of in-flight wireless game

AT&T backs out of in-flight wireless game

Challenging GoGo in-flight wireless was going to be no small feat, but AT&T was poised to offer LTE service while we coasted above the clouds. A new report suggests AT&T is no longer interested in air travel and LTE service, and will be re-focussing tier efforts on the terrestrial front. Their recent purchase of Mexican carrier lusacell is evidence of that, according to a statement provided by AT&T. Seems the promise of AT&T flying the friendly skies is no more.

Verizon Ellipsis 8 takes another shot at budget tablet market

Verizon Ellipsis 8 takes another shot at budget tablet market

Continuing a tradition it set last year, Verizon is outing the next iteration of its self-branded tablet, appropriately named the Ellipsis 8. Aside from the increment in number and, therefore, in size, the tablet represents a rather minor upgrade from last year's Ellipsis 7 model. Of course, hardware specs alone aren't the main focus of this mid-range tablet. The Ellipsis 8, in particular, is meant to showcase Verizon's doubly fast XLTE network. The videos you'll be able to stream or download because of that is the cherry on top.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet LTE Review

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet LTE Review

Welcome back to what I consider the world’s most versatile tablet. When I reviewed the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet just a few weeks ago in its Wi-Fi edition, it became immediately clear what NVIDIA was aiming for - a tablet that’s made for gamers, but rolls with the punches for anyone else that might want to take a stab at it. With the LTE version of this slate, I honestly can’t think of a tablet better suited to be my one companion for travel, at-home entertainment, and gaming.
