The Daily Slash: November 15 2010

Very first of all, let me point you toward our big time huge post: Holiday Gift Guide 2010! It’s full of EVERYTHING you could ever want (this year.) Then we’ve got reviews of both the Verizon AND the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Tab (both!), a review of a bigtime thin Full HD panel display, and an expanded look at all the stuff Mark Zuckerberg said about the future of communication today at the Facebook announcement event. And BONUS: Google CEO Eric Schmidt reveals not only a working Nexus S, but Android 2.3 Gingerbread as well! All this and MORE on The Daily Slash!

Today, Boeing has received first signals back from LightSquared’s SkyTerra 1 satellite after its launch at 12:29 p.m. Eastern time on November 14th on an International Launch Services Proton vehicle from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. What will this big momma do, you ask? It’ll bring us 4G connective capabilities, that’s what! When operating fully, the satellite will use and combine ground-based beam-forming equipment and ground stations to create LightSquared’s Space-Based Network, the company’s first. LightSquared plans on combining with a network of more than 40,000 base stations to offer both ground and satellite coverage for the entirety of the USA, offering a wholesale 4G LTE wireless network in “the first four markets” by Q3, 2011. Off blast!
