Sioeye Iris4G LTE action camera adds T-Mobile support

Some cameras have sidestepped that limitation by offering mobile data connectivity, and the Iris4G LTE action camera is no exception. Sioeye, the company behind the camera, has announced new T-Mobile support, allowing camera owners to use their camera on T-Mobile's data network.

Verizon, Samsung 4G extender puts a mini cell tower in homes

Verizon, Samsung 4G extender puts a mini cell tower in homes

No matter how strong your 4G LTE connection is, there will come a time, or a place, where the signal degrades to near uselessness. Sometimes, those times and places are found inside our very own homes, where structures and materials hinder the spread of cellular signals throughout the building. Making sure its customers won't be bereft of that much needed Internet connection, Verizon has teamed up again with Samsung to launch a 4G LTE Network Extender that practically gives homes and offices a mini LTE tower of their own.

Turning your Chevy into a 4G hotspot just got much cheaper

Turning your Chevy into a 4G hotspot just got much cheaper

GM is cutting the cost of its OnStar 4G LTE data plans, halving the price of data for its WiFi hotspot and connected apps services. The automaker began installing LTE modems in almost every car it sells in the US in 2014, and it's been a well-received move: Chevrolet, for instance, has sold more than 2.1 million such vehicles in the past two years.

The Galaxy S7 Active’s one key feature (it’s not just rugged)

The Galaxy S7 Active’s one key feature (it’s not just rugged)

Today we're having a peek at the differences between the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active. Spoiler alert - there aren't many of them. The big differences lie in the look of the casing for the devices, the ruggedness therein, and the battery. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S7, the Active model has a battery that's so extremely large, it'd be difficult to use it all up in a single day. Really difficult. Tablet battery-sized difficult.

The company has begun speaking about latency trials as well - imperative for the next generation of connected devices, and vehicles.

Ericsson’s Apple suit ends in license deal

Ericsson’s Apple suit ends in license deal

Shares have risen significantly this morning after Ericsson announced that they'd signed a patent licensing deal with Apple. This comes after nearly a year of patent litigation that had Ericsson accusing patent infringement on Apple, originally threatening to file a collection of patent lawsuits and seek to block sales of Apple products in the United States. It does not appear that Ericsson's request for blocking sales in the US via the US International Trade Commission did not take hold - Apple's deal with the company ends mutual suits that'd been in play since January of this year.

This cop cam lets you watch in real-time

This cop cam lets you watch in real-time

Social media like Twitter has meant emergencies and security incidents now play out in real-time, but there's nothing like a first-person view for the full story. Wearable cameras are becoming more common on the uniforms of police and other first-responders, but Liquid Image's Ego LS 800 promises something new: the ability to remotely connect and see exactly what the cop sees.

T-Mobile Binge On’s gritty little fine print

T-Mobile is doing its Uncarrier thing again and this time it's unlimited streaming video that's on offer, but your eyes may not thank you.

Philips, Ericsson 4G smartpoles light up, connect LA streets

It's a project two years in the making. Probably even more if you consider R&D and preliminary contracts. February last year, Philips and Ericsson revealed that they were workting together on the streetlight of the future, combining two of the things most delectable to city folk need or love or both: bright night lights and pervasive Internet access. Now that idea will finally be put to the real world test. Philips has just revealed that Los Angeles will be the first every city in the world to deploy its SmartPole street lights with 4G LTE connectivity.

T-Mobile wants you to host an LTE tower for everyone in your area

T-Mobile wants you to host an LTE tower for everyone in your area

The folks at T-Mobile have announced a 4G LTE CellSpot, a device you'll put in your living room to amp up your LTE coverage. At first this might seem like a pretty radical idea - bringing a piece of equipment into your home to ramp up your 4G LTE coverage at no additional cost to you. Pretty neat, yes? But these "CellSpot" devices aren't just for you. They provide additional coverage to every T-Mobile user within range, as well.

EE Robin tablet aims at kids with robust parental controls

It can be a challenge handing a kid a normal tablet and letting them roam around the web. Adult content and other inappropriate material is as close away as a web search. Many parents seek out tablets that are specifically aimed at children and want parental controls to keep kids away from inappropriate items online. EE has launched a new kids tablet called the Robin that fits this bill nicely.

You don’t need LTE in a smartwatch

You don’t need LTE in a smartwatch

This week LG revealed the Watch Urbane 2, a smartwatch with the ability to connect to a 4G LTE data network. This part of the watch is a gimmick. If that's what it takes to get you to purchase a watch that is, by all means, one of the nicest smartwatches on the market, then so be it. But you don't actually need it. Using Android Wear as Google intends it, (read: without rooting and adding odd apps not approved by Google Play), there's no real reason for you to be using LTE-speed data.
