Zer01 Communications doesn’t like data caps; prefers all-you-can-eat for $70

A new cellular carrier based out of Las Vegas has started up their new service featuring an unlimited calling and unlimited data plan. Zer01 Communications is giving customers the chance, starting in June, to utilize their data and cellular services as much as they want for $70 a month. $69.95 will buy you uncapped data and unlimited calling, meaning you can surf the internet all you want on an available WinMo device, or a bring-your-own unlocked GSM BlackBerry or Android phone. I'm assuming you'll be able to tether those devices and use the data with your laptop too.

Other specs include a web browser, media playback, a 528MHz processor, 256MB ROM and a microSD card slot that supports up to 8GB-sized cards. You can get the Samsung Propel Pro on AT&T now for $149.99 with a two-year contract.

HTC Touch Diamond goes to Verizon

HTC Touch Diamond goes to Verizon

Well, the HTC Touch Diamond just became available on yet another carrier. This time around, it's Verizon and though it's essentially the same, there are a few differences with the phone on this carrier than on others.

For instance, the TouchFLO interface is customized a bit for Verizon and also features Visual Voice Mail. Also included is the VZ Navigator service, which features GPS mapping built-in. But other than these few carrier-specific modifications, the phone remains pretty much the same.

In case you need reminding, the HTC Touch Diamond features 3G, Wi-Fi, a 640 x 480 touchscreen and Windows Mobile 6.1. What's surprising on Verizon, however, is the price tag, which is a high $300. This includes a two-year contract and a $70 rebate! You'll be able to order this phone from Verizon starting tomorrow.

FCC gets LG GM630 flip; shows TV tuner for US

FCC gets LG GM630 flip; shows TV tuner for US

The FCC got their hands on the LG GM630 flip today and it seems this handset might just be making its way to the U.S. with a TV tuner at the ready. That would certainly make for an interesting mobile phone, wouldn't you say?

We don't know any of the official specs as of yet, but what we do know is that it will be very similar to the LG HB620T, which is available currently in Europe. We can assume it will have a 240 x 320 rez screen with a 2-megapixel camera. Other features will possibly be an FM radio tuner and Bluetooth.

But with a TV tuner thrown into the mix, it's hard to say how this one will work.The big question on everyone's minds right now is how the TV signals will get to the phone in the first place. MediaFLO seems like a likely option, but nothing is official at the moment.
