T-Mobile Sprint merger may be saved with last minute compromise

Earlier this week, sources claimed SoftBank's board had decided to call off the Sprint-T-mobile merger, the reason being an inability to work out ownership terms with T-Mobile's Deutsche Telekom. Now sources are back saying that T-Mobile is scrambling to save the deal, and that it has sent revised terms to Sprint in hopes that something can be worked out. However, it is possible the deal will fail to go through regardless.

The tracker market may be growing, but startup Fynd thinks it can out-perform Tile, TrackR and others with its new 4G LTE tracker. Tracking dongles, which promise to help you find your keys, dog, or kids, are increasingly popular, but most rely on Bluetooth and that has some big issues. While it's low-power, Bluetooth doesn't have the service coverage that cellular radios offer.

Virgin Mobile will continue selling Android phones until fall 2018

Virgin Mobile announced this summer that it would become an iPhone-only carrier, something underscored by its recent $1 promotion.

The Pure White Essential Phone is finally on sale

Essential's newest version of its Android smartphone has been released, with the hotly-anticipated Pure White Essential Phone finally arriving in stores.

The T-Mobile and Sprint merger terms are reportedly almost set

T-Mobile and Sprint's on-again, off-again merger is near to terms being agreed, sources claim, though there's still some way to go before the four major carriers become three. The two networks have been potential suitors for several years now, though so far have failed to reach a conclusive deal that would see them merge.

Here's something you probably weren't expecting: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint have announced that they're all joining forces. No, they aren't coming together to summon some kind of 4G LTE demon that will end the world as we know it, but rather to work on a new mobile authentication solution. The new group they've formed is called the Mobile Authentication Taskforce, and while that name may be a bit silly, the group serves an important purpose.
