AT&T Galaxy View 2 confirmed in promo video ahead of launch

The first Galaxy View probably found a niche yet profitable market of Samsung and AT&T are at it again with a sequel. Confirming what was initially just rumored, the carrier released a video extolling the qualities of the gigantic tablet. Unfortunately, that's all that it does as AT&T hasn't yet announced any other detail, how much this "unique experience" will cost.

These 7 cities just got AT&T 5G

These 7 cities just got AT&T 5G

AT&T continues to roll out its 5G network, announcing today that it has launched service in seven different cities around the US. AT&T's 5G network got its start in 12 different cities at the tail end of last year, so after this latest expansion, the number of cities with 5G service from the carrier is now up to 19. There's a long way to go before AT&T 5G covers the nation, but this is certainly a good start.

AT&T 5G break through 1 Gigabit barrier

AT&T 5G break through 1 Gigabit barrier

AT&T has recently taken a lot of flak for the misleading 5G "Evolution" it has put on smartphones but that doesn't mean it isn't actually making headway in well, the evolution of 5G networks. There might still be some marketing involved here but when it announced that its 5G network is the first to surpass the 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) threshold, it is very, very serious. If anything, it lays the foundation of a 5G network that will deliver those sweet promises later this year.

Magic Leap One heads to AT&T with Game of Thrones promos in tow

Early adopters have been able to purchase the Magic Leap One headset for a few months now, but beginning next week, you'll have another option when it comes to acquiring one. AT&T has announced that it will begin carrying the Magic Leap One next week, and it'll have various Game of Thrones tie-ins to go along with it, just in time for the start of the final season. Unfortunately, Magic Leap One isn't going to be available at all AT&T stores right away - not even close to all of them, in fact.

AT&T and Comcast form first ever anti-robocall tag team

AT&T and Comcast form first ever anti-robocall tag team

Fraudulent robocallers, your days are numbered. Or at least that's what AT&T and Comcast are telling the sources of these calls designed to con people. In what is being touted as the nation's first, the two providers are joining forces to combat such kinds of robocalls by authenticating not just calls happen within their respective networks but also those that cross the lines between the two.

AT&T’s fake 5G icon is now the subject of a Sprint lawsuit

AT&T’s fake 5G icon is now the subject of a Sprint lawsuit

Back in December, AT&T started rolling out "5G E" branding to some of the phones on its network. 5G E, as AT&T claims, stands for "5G Evolution," or the precursor to the nationwide 5G networks carriers are beginning to build out. There's just one problem: AT&T doesn't offer phones that support 5G yet, and what it brands as "5G E" is actually just 4G LTE Advanced.

iPhone isn’t immune from misleading AT&T 5GE logo

iPhone isn’t immune from misleading AT&T 5GE logo

Today the folks at AT&T revealed a new update for iPhones in the form of the latest update to iOS. This device update came to those users that opted to allow the download - if they were part of the Beta program, that is to say. The iOS 12.2 beta was released to iPhones inside the United States earlier this afternoon.

AT&T’s price increases the result of billion-dollar merger debt

AT&T’s price increases the result of billion-dollar merger debt

In the last several years, AT&T has made two huge acquisitions: DirecTV in 2015, and Time Warner in 2018. With these mergers — which were clearly anti-consumer — AT&T thought it turn itself from a telecom giant into a cable TV giant, with a near monopoly on the US's media industry. But instead of just buying itself an undeniable advantage, the company has given customers more reason to leave by attempting to cover its immense debt with price increases.

AT&T SVP defends “5G E” label with non-answers

AT&T SVP defends “5G E” label with non-answers

5G is the buzzword of 2019, especially among carriers, who can be pretty aggressive when it comes to marketing. Case in point is AT&T, which is getting a lot of flak for its “5G E” label on certain smartphones. Other carriers have, unsurprisingly, called foul over AT&T’s misleading marketing (which may actually have to do with the fact that it had blindsided them). But, of course, AT&T is sticking to its guns (unless forced by some regulatory body) and is defending its move as something that makes absolutely perfect sense, even when it might not.

T-Mobile, Verizon take shots at AT&T’s bogus 5G logo

T-Mobile, Verizon take shots at AT&T’s bogus 5G logo

Yesterday, AT&T began rolling out an update to some Android phones that replaced the "LTE" icon users typically see with a new icon that shows "5G E." The problem, of course, is that customers aren't really tapping into AT&T's 5G network - instead, they're simply getting a 4G LTE connection that has been bolstered by things like 4x4 MIMO, three-way carrier aggregation, and 256 QAM.

Those ridiculous AT&T ‘5G E’ icons are arriving on phones

Those ridiculous AT&T ‘5G E’ icons are arriving on phones

AT&T's 5G network may have gone live in a handful of locations, but don't be fooled if you see a 5G icon on your Samsung or LG smartphone: you don't actually have true 5G. The carrier has begun updating a handful of Android smartphones with its fairly misleading "5G E" symbol, which AT&T insists is a perfectly reasonable indicator that you're in "5G Evolution" coverage.

AT&T Power Drum iPhone, Apple Watch wireless power bank hits FCC

AT&T Power Drum iPhone, Apple Watch wireless power bank hits FCC

Perhaps 2019 will be the year of the Airpower but until Apple finally launches its long-promised wireless charger, others will try to make their own version of it. And some will do a terrible job at it, depending on your aesthetic tastes. Take, for example, this AT&T “Power Drum” that just came out of the blue. Fortunately, it’s not really a big drum but its odd canister shape is designed to not only wirelessly charge an iPhone on top but also an Apple Watch wrapped around it.
