HTC gives Sensation a WiMAX makeover for HTC EVO 4G+

HTC gives Sensation a WiMAX makeover for HTC EVO 4G+

HTC has outed its latest 4G smartphone, and though the dual-core HTC EVO 4G+ WiMAX handset is initially intended for South Korea's WiBro networks, we'd be very surprised if it didn't make it over to North American shores. Packing both WiMAX and HSPA connectivity, the EVO 4G+ basically takes the guts of the HTC Sensation - including the 1.2GHz dual-core CPU and 4.3-inch qHD resolution display - and gives it a squared off chassis.

SG Comics Presents: AT&T’s 4G Marketing

SG Comics Presents: AT&T’s 4G Marketing

Last week, we had the launch of two more '4G' devices on the AT&T network, the HP Veer 4G and the Samsung Infuse 4G, which sparked new complaints about the carrier's marketing strategy. Back at CES earlier this year, AT&T had already downgraded the term 4G to their "evolved" 3G network, but this past week, they further downgraded 4G to mean the combination of 3G and a fast backhaul. So, what happens when they actually complete their promised 4G LTE network?

Clearwire has confirmed that it is shuttering its Rover pre-pay brand, replacing it with its own no-contract plans. The company told FierceWireless that Rover was only ever "offered on a limited retail basis in a couple markets" and was seen as a way "to test some new pay-as-you-go pricing options." There's no word on whether the Rover Puck mobile hotspot will be made available as a CLEAR Spot.

4G: What does this really mean?

4G: What does this really mean?

Texas resident, Keith Geissler, contacted the Better Business Bureau when he found that his ATRIX 4G was only pushing around 300kbps up the tube instead of the expected 5.5mbps.

The ATRIX is a HSUPA-capable device, and we currently are performing the testing and preparations necessary to ensure that, when we turn this feature on, you will continue to have a world class experience.

AT&T hasn't quite gotten their act together as quick as they had hoped with this one. Sometimes the real answer is that these systems are technically the bleeding edge, and it's not some conspiracy to keep you from achieving your top speeds on the wireless internet. Here's a little help discerning the technical specs from behind the marketing malarkey surrounding the wireless broadband available on the market.

Sprint CEO: “Not faux-G, 4G” on our network

With the AT&T/T-Mobile USA acquisition still hanging in the air, and a keynote this morning attended by Sprint, Verizon and AT&T execs but punctuated with no small number of barbs, it comes as little surprise that Sprint CEO Dan Hesse took a pot-shot at rival 4G networks during the Sprint CTIA 2011 keynote today. In among announcing the HTC EVO View 4G, Hesse pointedly highlighted that the WiMAX-enabled Flyer delivers "not faux-G, 4G" on his network.
