Galaxy S5 Plus revealed, but why?

Galaxy S5 Plus revealed, but why?

Just as Samsung revealed a late-season upgrade to their Galaxy S4 with the "LTE-A" model last year, this year’s Galaxy S5 Plus has arrived. Here in 2014, this means an upgrade past the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 to a higher-grade Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 with 2.5GHz clock speed, Krait 450 CPUs, and Adreno 420 GPUs. What’s all that mean to the lay person? It means it can process better, harder, faster, stronger. This device also works with LTE Cat. 6 instead of Cat. 4, meaning you can go faster once again - supposing you've got LTE Cat. 6 in your area, that is to say.

Will.i.am Puls smartwatch unveiled, will arrive at AT&T

Will.i.am's smartwatch has been officially unveiled right on time, and it's called the Puls ("pulse"). We've heard bits and pieces about the smartwatch over this past year, and it was originally expected the device would be available this summer. That didn't pan out, but is of little matter now, with the smartwatch finally be rolled out and (some of) the pertinent details with it. Among other things, the smartwatch can be used independent of a smartphone, and will be available to those in the United States via AT&T.

Nexus 6: big for carriers, OnePlus, and Motorola

Nexus 6 might be the phone you’re looking for this Fall and Winter, with it’s big screen and top-end spec sheet. Even if you’re a fan of Nexus (I am) and are in the market for a new phone, there’s one important aspect of the newest Nexus that will make you think twice about swarming the Play Store October 29 to snap one up. At $649, the Nexus 6 is the most expensive starting price for a Nexus phone ever.

AT&T scores PadFone X mini exclusive, available Oct 24

AT&T scores PadFone X mini exclusive, available Oct 24

Fulfilling a promise it made, ASUS is bringing yet another of its PadFone smartphone/tablet hybrids to the US market. And just like with its namesake, the PadFone X, it is again arriving exclusively to AT&T. The PadFone X mini offers that same flexibility of a 2-in-1 device, this time in a smaller and more handy size, without losing the advantages of AT&T's 4G LTE network. Of course, it is considerably less equipped than its older and bigger sibling, but the rather low no contract price does make up for it.

AT&T expands gigabit Internet service to four regions

Back in April, AT&T revealed that it was looking at a bunch of locations to which it might expand its gigabit Internet service. Though no timeline or definite we're-going-to-do-it promise was given, the service provider has indeed moved ahead with its plans. Four of the previously revealed locations will soon be getting AT&T's GigaPower service: Chicago, the Atlanta area, Newnan, and Decatur. Construction is set to start some time this year, but when the service will be available isn't yet known.

Nexus 6 from AT&T accidentally revealed

Nexus 6 from AT&T accidentally revealed

Before your heart starts to skip a beat, know that this might have just been an innocent error. Either someone pressed the "Publish" button too soon or actually messed up in typing in details. Either way, those errors are leading to some hope that AT&T might have some space reserved for the Nexus 6, possibly immediately after its official launch even. If true, this would make the Nexus 6 the first ever Nexus smartphone that will be sold directly by the carrier.

Is AT&T’s Passport roaming really the best Ma Bell can do?

Is AT&T’s Passport roaming really the best Ma Bell can do?

Death, taxes, and sky-high international roaming fees that make you wish you'd stayed in Nantucket: there are some things you can count on. Still, US carriers are making some small waves in paring back the cost of using a cellphone abroad, and latest up is AT&T with a set of three Passport plans that, from $30, include unlimited messaging and WiFi at select hotspots, along with a chunk of data and some subsidized - but still, it has to be said, not inexpensive - voice call rates.

AT&T settles with FTC on $105 million fine

AT&T settles with FTC on $105 million fine

AT&T and the FTC have settled an ongoing spat about customer billing. The dust-up surrounds add-ons customers may have found on their bill for custom ringtones and the like. Though those goods were purchased from third-parties, and added on the bill to streamline payments, many customers took issue with the practice, and felt the charges were either egregious or just plain wrong. Now that AT&T — like T-Mobile and Apple before them — has settled with the FTC, it cleans up an unfortunate mess.

Samsung Rugby 4 flip phone to launch at AT&T

Samsung Rugby 4 flip phone to launch at AT&T

The world is full of smartphones, and while durable options exist, many find the good ol' flip phone to be a better option. Not all flip phones are durable, of course, but the Samsung Rugby 4 is, at least according to AT&T, which will be launching the phone soon and in preparation posted a slapdash "stress test" video. The push-to-talk phone will launch this coming Friday, October 10, bringing with it a construction that meets military standards, as well as things like an integrated compass and WiFi.

Nexus 6 details and a DROID for Verizon

Nexus 6 details and a DROID for Verizon

This morning we dug into the FCC documents for Motorola’s next big release. Really big, as it were - a full 6-inches of display to take on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the iPhone 6 Plus. We’ve heard rumors that Google would pick up Motorola’s next big release as a "Nexus 6", working with 6-inches of display. We’ve also heard that Verizon would be getting the device on their carrier. What we hadn’t heard so far - but what we can basically (nearly) confirm without Motorola saying so is that Verizon’s model will be the same, but with DROID branding.
