It is the Motorola fans' turn to get excited. Motorola has finally announced the preorder details for its Moto X smartphone, the company's flagship device that is meant to contend with Apple's iPhone 6 and Samsung's Galaxy S5.
Having already initiated its Voice over LTE (VoLTE) roll-out, AT&T is now planning to offer Wi-Fi calling by 2015.
The carrier has always had embraced Wi-Fi and other closely related technologies. As a matter of fact, AT&T has managed to partner with other business entities over the years in order to provide public Wi-Fi areas for its customers.
AT&T recently announced that their LTE network is now covering more than 300 million people in the United States. That figure is about 95% of the whole population of the country.
AT&T did not state for certain whether they are stopping their 4G rollout. But by hitting 300 million, the carrier has no doubt accomplished something significant -- AT&T has covered more people than Verizon did when it initiated its LTE rollout. Back in June of 2013, it was reported that Verizon had reached 298 million people when it completed its 4G network rollout.
More than a year ago, Samsung introduced a prototype of a smartphone that featured a curved screen which wraps around the right-handed area. Called Youm, that prototype eventually would give way to another curved-screen Samsung handset -- the Galaxy Note Edge, which is expected to be released this fall.
In January of this year, AT&T ran a promo that gives customers a $100.00 bill credit for every new line of service that they activated through AT&T Next. The special offer ran until the end of March this year.
A top AT&T executive recently revealed that the mobile telecom operator is planning to deploy LTE Broadcast technology (aka LTE Multicast) starting next year. Based on Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (eMBMS), LTE Multicast is a technology that allows a certain type of content to be sent simultaneously to a subscriber group. It is generally considered a more efficient way of broadcasting compared to having the same content delivered to each individual user upon request.
The highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S5 was just unveiled at another one of Samsung's famous Unpacking Events in Barcelona Spain at Mobile World Congress 2014. Some of the things we learned about this new flagship smartphone from Samsung are that it has some new hardware and will be running some new software, but we also learned that most of the new GS5 has come from its predecessor the Galaxy S4.
