Nexus 6 will have AT&T apps – sort of

The AT&T release of the Nexus 6 will have AT&T apps - but not right out of the box. Instead, according to an AT&T representative, the Nexus 6 as carried by AT&T will download AT&T apps the first time you connect to the Google Play app store. Every single one of these apps will be able to be un-installed if you wish. This is a new feature with Android 5.0 Lollipop - the ability to push carrier downloads to your device through the Google Play app store.

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.

AT&T will purchase Mexican carrier lusacell for $2.5bil

AT&T will purchase Mexican carrier lusacell for $2.5bil

AT&T has announced they will acquire Mexican carrier lusacell, which covers 70% of Mexico and uses the same GSM technology AT&T takes advantage of. Though precise terms of the deal were not disclosed, we do know the purchase price was $2.5 billion. AT&T still has a few hurdles to leap before things are finalized. Grupo Salinas — who AT&T made the deal with — currently has a 50% stake in lusacell, and needs to buy out their partners ahead of the AT&T buyout, according to Reuters.

AT&T readies FiLIP 2 for kids, TIMEX IRONMAN ONE GPS+ for adults

There's a wearable for everyone these days. Smartwatches maybe mostly a geek's fantasy come true (conversely perhaps a horologist's worst nightmare), but all people of all ages and interests have one that's desinged for them. Starting this Friday, AT&T will be making available two smartwatches for different members of the family. The latest generation FiLIP 2 is just as much for parents as they are for the kids they were designed for, while the new TIMEX IRONMAN ONE GPS+ is a smartwatch for those who want to leave their smartphones at home when running about.

T-Mobile, AT&T announce Moto 360 availability

You want a smartwatch, and by many accounts, the Moto 360 is the best you can get right now. Classic style and bleeding edge technology come together to form one pretty great device. You might also want to snap the Android Wear trendsetter via your carrier, but who’s going to have it? When will they carry it? The device is unavailable via Google Play right now, and unless you can get one via a store like Best Buy or via Amazon, your carrier may be the best option.

Verizon and AT&T team on VoLTE (and up 4G data to T-Mo CEO’s amusement)

Verizon and AT&T team on VoLTE (and up 4G data to T-Mo CEO’s amusement)

Verizon and AT&T plan to switch on cross-network VoLTE calls in 2015, the two carriers have confirmed today, opening the door to first voice over LTE calls and then one day video calling and messaging. VoLTE launched on Verizon's network in September, allowing handsets like the iPhone 6 to use the data network for VoIP rather than traditional methods, with the addition of HD-quality audio too. However, for the moment, VoLTE only supports calls between subscribers on the same network, something Verizon and AT&T are planning to change.

AT&T releases Kyocera DuraForce: rugged beyond compare

AT&T releases Kyocera DuraForce: rugged beyond compare

There's a new hardcore phone out this week with AT&T, the Kyocera DuraForce. This device runs with the hardest of crews, made to withstand hard impact, water, and dust - and it's not a half bad phone even without the ruggedness taken into account. While most rugged phones that've been released over the past several years have been less-than-pleasing to the eye or less-than-fantastic in the feature department, this Kyocera DuraForce might just break the curse. It's got a big red button, after all.

Samsung’s futuristic Galaxy Note Edge on show in US November 7th

Samsung’s futuristic Galaxy Note Edge on show in US November 7th

Samsung's curved OLED variant of the Galaxy Note 4, the Galaxy Note Edge, worried us a little with chatter of a "limited edition" device with minimal availability. Now, though AT&T has confirmed that curious US buyers will be able to snap up the wrapped-screen smartphone from November 7th, bringing the key specifications of the Note 4 but tweaking them by bending the AMOLED display around one side of the handset to use as an alert ticker or status display. However, as you might expect when you're dealing with new screen technologies, it doesn't come cheap.
