AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 appears as first LTE edition in USA

The mid-sized machine known as Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.0 has made its way to the USA before this week, but never with wireless data abilities beyond Wi-fi. Today AT&T has jumped onboard with the machine, bringing their own 4G LTE network to the 8-inch display-toting tablet with S-Pen technology. Though AT&T hasn't officially stated when they'll be releasing this machine specifically, they have noted that it'll be coming to the network "in the coming weeks."

Nokia EOS 41MP Windows Phone hardware leaks [UPDATE: Lens up close]

While earlier this week it was reported that AT&T was all but a lock as the first US carrier of the upcoming Nokia EOS device, the device itself hadn't yet been seen in physical form. Today several images have appeared showing how this machine will be a combination of forms. While the front and sides of this Nokia smartphone appear very much to be right along the lines of the Nokia Lumia 920, the back and its hump show its powers inherent: here lies the power of the original Nokia 808 Pureview.

Samsung SM-C101 mystery smartphone hits FCC: may be Galaxy Camera reboot

With quad-band GSM and the ability to connect with AT&T's HSPA+, it presents a bit of an oddity: that means no 4G LTE.

AT&T’s new monthly stealth fee has some crying foul

AT&T has imposed a new "stealth fee" that, starting with this month, will tack an extra 61 cents on their monthly bills. While the amount is small, the principle behind it has many - both customers and non-customers alike - crying foul.

AT&T video chat goes unlimited for all by 2014

AT&T video chat goes unlimited for all by 2014

This past week we noticed a bit of an oddity in how AT&T handled the video chat element in Google's new "Google+ Hangouts" app on cellular data: in effect, it didn't work. Asking AT&T about the situation, it was discovered that they had a policy in place for pre-loaded apps working with video chat, making it clear that it's the OS makers (Google and Apple) and the device makers (Samsung, BlackBerry, LG, HTC, Apple), that were responsible for enabling pre-loaded apps to be able to work with cellular data for video chat. Today, AT&T makes it clear that Apple, Samsung, and BlackBerry will be making a big change by June for all their pre-loaded apps.
