Nokia is reportedly planning an exclusive 4G deal with UK carrier Everything Everywhere for the Lumia 920,  a potential distraction from its second mea culpa over the faked camera sample goof.

AT&T shared data skewered by T-Mobile claims

With AT&T and Verizon releasing shared data plans this summer, AT&T's plans appearing just earlier today, T-Mobile has released a statement skewering their competitors' methods and data plans.
