iOS 8 lets your iPhone make WiFi calls on T-Mobile

T-Mobile Holds Announcement Event In New York

Apple covered a lot of ground during its iOS 8 launch, but it glossed over a big, big deal for some iPhone owners: WiFi calling support. When the upgrade is available in the fall, subscribers on T-Mobile and other supporting networks can use WiFi hotspots for phone conversations instead of worrying about cellular reception or roaming fees. The feature is arguably overdue when Android and Windows Phone have supported it for a while, but it’s a welcome addition for iOS fans who’d rather not switch platforms (or rely solely on voice over IP apps like Skype) just to get a better calling experience.

Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is coming to Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile

Samsung Galaxy S5

Long gone are the days of prepaid carriers being stuck with low-end smartphones. Need proof? That’s easy: Sprint has announced that both Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile will carry Samsung’s Galaxy S5 in the second quarter of the year, or sometime around the worldwide launch in April. Neither wireless brand is giving out prices at this stage, although it’s safe to presume that the brand new, Spark-compatible flagship will carry a premium. Even so, its presence should be welcome to Boost and Virgin customers who’ve had to go without high-end Galaxies.

Chrome DevTools now lets you see how websites behave on mobile devices (video)

Google Chrome DevTools

Developing a mobile-friendly website can be daunting. How do you account for the many, many devices that will see your page? If you grab Google’s new Chrome 32 beta, that kind of testing should be trivial. The desktop browser’s DevTools for Mobile can now emulate the behavior of mobile gadgets down to their display resolutions, sensors and touch input. Those who need to test on real hardware will have an easier time, too — Chrome 32′s new USB support lets you screencast an Android device’s browser to see how code runs without leaving the developer environment. Many of us normal web denizens won’t see the benefits of the updated DevTools, but site builders eager to save time will want to visit the source links.

Ultra Mobile unveils Ultra Zero for free international calls to select countries

Over at the Prepaid Press Expo in Las Vegas, mobile provider Ultra Mobile announced an addition to its no-contract plans. Ultra Zero is a new feature that allows subscribers to make calls to Canada, the UK, China, Mexico, and Singapore at almost no cost.

ultra-mobile-logo

Ultra Mobile is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) that provides prepaid mobile services to customers across the US, catering especially to individuals with families or friends living outside the country. The new Ultra Zero feature offers international calls to selected countries at 0 cents per minute for the first 1,000 minutes. Afterwards, calls to the mentioned countries will cost 1 cent per minute.

Ultra Mobile is also introducing new features to its tiered offerings, which start at $19 per month. All plans now include 4G data, unlimited international SMS, international calling, and international calling credit. It has also reduced its rates for international calls to other countries not covered by Ultra Zero.

Ultra Mobile wants to differentiate itself from other mobile operators by bundling international services to its monthly data plans, removing the need for calling cards and global messaging addons. Ultra Mobile SIMs work on any unlocked mobile phone and provides nationwide coverage.

Sony announces the Xperia SP M35t, its first TD-LTE device for China Mobile

Sony Xperia SP M35t with TDLTE radio announced for China Mobile

Announced alongside the Xperia C just now is the TD-LTE version of the Xperia SP (M35t), and naturally, it’s headed to China Mobile who pretty much owns the technology right now. Like before, the device comes with a 4.6-inch 720p plus a touchscreen that works fine with gloves. Additionally, NFC and the iconic illuminating transparent element are still present. Not much was said about the detailed specs, though, so we’re not sure if it’s the same chipset inside. Again, stay tuned for further announcements.

Verizon FiOS Mobile arrives on Android, lets you watch live TV and video on demand

Verizon FiOS Mobile arrives on Android, lets you watch live TV and video on demand

The iOS crowd has been able to enjoy Verizon’s FiOS Mobile service for some time now, but now it’s the Android faithful’s turn to finally experience what they’ve been missing. The application, which is said to be compatible with “many of your favorite Android enabled devices,” gives FiOS subscribers the ability to live stream (some) channels and have access to on-demand video content right from their smartphone or tablet. Not surprisingly, a TV subscription is a must, meaning that folks who are on an internet-only plan won’t be able to enjoy what the app has to offer. Verizon FiOS Mobile is now up for grabs via Google Play, so hit that source link below and let us know in the comments if it was worth the wait.

Japan-bound Sony Xperia UL leaks out with 5-inch screen, reportedly packs Snapdragon 600

Japanbound Sony Xperia UL leaks out, reportedly packs Snapdragon 600 and 5inch screen

It was only a couple of weeks ago that we got an early peek of T-Mobile’s Xperia Z thanks to the FCC, but we’ve now already gotten word of another unannounced Sony handset. While the published FCC report doesn’t offer much more than a label, Blog of Mobile has turned up some images of what’s purported to be the Xperia UL (codenamed “Gaga”), giving us an early look at the 5-inch device clearly inspired by other members of the family design-wise. What’s more, the UL is allegedly sporting Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 chip, along with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage, a 2,300mAh battery and waterproof / dustproof attributes (these being common Japanese standards). Word on the internet is the Xperia UL will be launching as a KDDI exclusive, though we’ll have to wait for something more concrete to see if that’s indeed the case. Until then, you can peruse the gallery after the break to get a slight idea of what to expect.

Samsung Introduces Side Sync: ‘PC In Mobile, Mobile In PC’ With A Fatal Flaw

image

Samsung has just announced details of a new syncing/file management tool called Side Sync, which it mentioned last month alongside new ATIV PC branding.

The basic idea behind the app is easy, painless file and information transfer from PC to mobile and vice versa. This is accomplished using a dock that plugs into your PC’s USB port. Once hooked up, you can share your mouse and keyboard with your Samsung phone, dragging and dropping files, and copying and pasting information as you please. Users can also set the service to automatically sync photos. Here’s Samsung’s introductory video for the product:

IconImage_20130508003015447_NEW_WEB_SHOT2_HALF IconImage_20130508003015447_NEW_WEB_SHOT3_HALF IconImage_20130508003015447_NEW_WEB_SHOT4_HALF

As great as the service looks, the tagline “PC in Mobile, Mobile in PC” is at least a little misleading – Side Sync doesn’t just work with just any PC – it’s only compatible Samsung PCs.

Can Samsung and Mozilla Revolutionize the Mobile Browser?

Anyone who has owned a BlackBerry smartphone knows the pain of mobile browser evolution. Before 2007 we merely accepted it as reality. There were no good mobile browsers, so users didn’t think much of it. But then came the iPhone with Safari, and with it a much smoother and easier mobile browsing experience. We can credit Apple with showing us what mobile browsers can do.

Safari for iOS has taken several steps forward since then. Google has its own answer, not with the default Android browser but with a mobile version of Chrome. There are some decent third-party browsers such as Skyfire, which allows Flash on iOS, and Opera Mini, but they’re mostly for niche audiences. The masses will get along just fine with Safari and Chrome.

(I suppose it’s not shocking that more people use the Android browser than Chrome, but it’s still a head scratcher. Chrome is a far better browser, and it’s free.)

In the above link you’ll see market share information for mobile browsers. What you might not notice is the absence of a very familiar browser: Firefox. There is indeed a Firefox for Android, but it doesn’t get much traction. On the iOS side, Firefox doesn’t have any interest under current conditions. That leaves Firefox developer Mozilla in a tight spot. Mobile browser usage is increasing, and all it can boast now is a fledging mobile OS.

It comes as little surprise, then, that Mozilla has had a mobile browser project in the works. What might surprise a bit is that they’ve teamed with Samsung to develop it. In a blog post today they describe the browser, Servo, which is built with the Rust programming language. Mozilla hits the major points in the second paragraph:

Servo is an attempt to rebuild the Web browser from the ground up on modern hardware, rethinking old assumptions along the way. This means addressing the causes of security vulnerabilities while designing a platform that can fully utilize the performance of tomorrow’s massively parallel hardware to enable new and richer experiences on the Web. To those ends, Servo is written in Rust, a new, safe systems language developed by Mozilla along with a growing community of enthusiasts.

The idea is certainly noble. Mobile has change the way we interact with the internet, and so current browsers might not best fit our needs. Selling a new browser can be tough, but it appears that Mozilla and Samsung have a novel idea.

Security appears to be the main focus of the browser. That’s certainly going to play well with consumers who are concerned about the recent rash of hackings. Mobile is a uniquely personal platform and people are rightly concerned about security vulnerabilities. Explicitly addressing them with a new solution could win Servo major points with consumers.

It will be a while before we see the fruits of this project. In most cases it would be easy to dismiss yet another mobile browser. But in the case of Servo there’s too much going in its favor to ignore.

You Will Soon Be Able To Use Your Old Sprint Devices On Boost Mobile Or Virgin Mobile

Sprint

Some great news out of Sprint today as the carrier has just announced a new program called, “Bring Your Own Sprint Device” . This is how Sprint plans to reduce waste associated with unused or thrown away devices. Sprint is going to allow devices to be re-activated on a their approved MVNO’s (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) list, which basically means, the carriers who piggyback off Sprint’s network may allow Sprint devices. Some of the carriers that may be on this list include, most notably, Boost Mobile and Virgin. So far Sprint has only said that it will allow unused and  deactivated devices to be brought on, but the specific requirements for this has not been announced. Most likely blacklisted devices, like devices that have been reported stolen, will not qualify. After this program goes into full effect this could turn out be a great opportunity for Virgin and Boost Mobile. This would allow them to offer service on premium Sprint devices, like the Note II, while keeping the non-contract, low monthly payment allure many find appealing.

Sprint Galaxy Note II

This is something that I think all carriers should try to implement as it gives its subscribers the ability to get a great device and still be able to use it if they leave for a pre-paid plan on the carriers network. In my opinion, this really shows how much Sprint values its environmental side of the company and how hard it works to keep that side alive. I may end up trying this myself once the program takes full effect as I have one line that’s at the end of its contract, so I will let you know how well it works out. If you have Sprint what do you think about this program and will you take advantage of it?, let me know in the comments below.

[New App] Opera Browser Beta, With Ground-Up Redesign And Webkit Rendering Engine, Is Live In The Play Store

unnamedGet those fingers ready, Opera fans: the biggest thing to happen to your favorite mobile browser in years has arrived. Opera Software announced a new and retooled version of their browser in February, and demonstrated it during Mobile World Congress. The Opera browser beta (no Mini or Mobile here, it’s the “full” version a la Chrome) is live in the Play Store. It’s a free download for just about any Android device, so get to it.

Screenshot_2013-03-04-21-33-29 Screenshot_2013-03-04-21-31-04

The biggest draw in this new release is the WebKit rendering engine, the same one used by both Chrome and the AOSP Android browser.

The After Math: Cinder block-chucking robots, Barcelona’s mobile bonanza and brain doctors

Welcome to The After Math, where we attempt to summarize this week’s tech news through numbers, decimal places and percentages.

The After Math Barcelona's mobile bonanza, Big Dog and brain doctors

Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress may have formed the backbone for this week’s news but there was also notable news elsewhere — like the fact that Boston Dynamics’ upgraded quadruped robot can now throw cinder blocks. We’ll be sticking closer to the (safer) events in Spain, however, so take a look for yourself after the break.

Back to BlackBerry: international travels

Back to BlackBerry week 3

Dropping a smartphone is an absolutely horrifying experience. And on my first day in Barcelona for Mobile World Congress, it happened to me with my BlackBerry Z10.

As much as I hate to admit, it was a dumb move on my part. Unfortunately, tragedy can strike with as simple an act as brushing one’s elbow across the table, and that’s all it took for me to knock my smartphone right onto a hard surface — facedown in a perfectly horizontal position. If you’ve ever been through such an accident, you know the few seconds it takes to pick up the phone and survey the damage can be incredibly nerve-wracking and one of the most suspenseful moments of your life.

I’m happy to say that this particular story has a positive ending, as I turned the phone over to see if I would need to call BlackBerry HQ in a panic. To my shock, it was completely fine. There wasn’t a single scratch or ding, and the touchscreen was just as responsive as ever. It would’ve been a different story had it fallen onto a concrete floor, but this still significantly increased my opinion of the Z10′s durability.

Had my Z10 come face to face with concrete, I would’ve been in a nasty predicament. Not only would I have had to pause or put the kibosh my 30-day trial run with the BlackBerry Z10, but I’m also on the other side of the world in a foreign country. While getting a new phone isn’t impossible, it’s expensive, time-consuming and frustrating. Yep, this was how my 10-day international adventure began, but how well has it gone for me since?

T-Mobile Q4 2012 revenue drops 5.2 percent to $4.9 billion, customers and income also fall

TMobile revenue drops 10 percent to $41 billion, customers and income down, too

Is it a good thing that T-Mobile’s in the crosshairs of a MetroPCS merger? We’ll, see, but meanwhile the operator again shed revenue, customers and profit in Q4 2012. Total revenue dropped during the quarter to $4.9 billion from $5.2 billion last year, while income was down a whopping 25.1 percent to $1.05 billion year-over-year. Meanwhile the company lost 515,000 branded contract customers compared to 492,000 last quarter, representing a ‘churn’ rate of 2.5 percent in that category, a slight improvement over last year. All that culminated in a rather miserable year for the carrier, which earned $424 million less than in 2011 ($4.9 billion), while showing a total loss of $6.4 billion thanks to depreciation and impairment charges. Meanwhile, parent Deutsche Telecom said recently that MetroPCS would merge with T-Mobile as early as April — which sounds like it can’t come soon enough.

 We're liveblogging Nokia's MWC event tomorrow at 2am ET!

The last two events put on by Nokia at Mobile World Congress have been pretty solid affairs — the PureView 808 last year, preceded by the earth-shattering partnership with Microsoft the year before that — but we must admit, we’re not quite certain as to what we should expect this go-round. Will there be another mystery product that we weren’t expecting, such as a tablet or PureView Lumia of some kind? Hard to say, but what is certain is that we’ll be there covering it for you. And as an extra bonus, if you want to follow along with us, Nokia is planning to have a live video feed available here as well.

LG Optimus G shipping to Europe this month with Jelly Bean (video)

LG Optimus G shipping to Europe with Jelly Bean video

LG is about to kick its currently slow, worldwide Optimus G deployment into high gear. Right in time for Mobile World Congress, the company has confirmed that its late 2012 flagship is about to reach Europe. Sweden gets first crack at the Optimus G before February is over, while at least France, Germany and Italy are next in line. Every European version will ship with the Jelly Bean update LG promised for new launches back in late January. It adds more than just obvious Android 4.1 features like Google Now and rich notifications: there’s a wider variety of QSlide-friendly apps, better status bar controls and small perks like Privacy Keeper for calls and Safety Care live support. We’re still waiting for Jelly Bean to hit the US, but Europeans (and envious Americans) can see what they’ll get by watching the video after the break.

T-Mobile Announces New GoSmart Mobile Brand: Contract-Free, Low-Cost, "DUM" Slogan

gsLittle T-Mobile already has a reputation for being the carrier for budget-conscious consumers, but it’s taking things even further with the new GoSmart service. The plans are cheap, and there are no annual contracts to worry about. Service starts at $30 per month and customers get access to the full T-Mobile network. It sounds like a solid deal if you can get past the contrived marketing lingo that would insult the intelligence of a third-grader.

gosmart

Like other pre-paid brands, you can plug in a compatible phone that you already own, or buy one from GoSmart. There is a $49 Alcatel dumbphone, and a $99 ZTE device running an ancient version of Android.

T-Mobile Sonic 2.0 LTE hotspot reportedly poses for a press image

TMobile's Sonic 20 LTE hotspot poses for a press image

We’ve previously had just a smattering of text to hint that T-Mobile might kick off its formal LTE launch with a Sonic 2.0 Mobile Hotspot. Things just got more tangible this weekend through an apparent TmoNews leak. The really-truly-4G pocket router has surfaced in a supposed press render that’s fairly plain looking, but suggests a little sophistication through a color screen. We’re still missing the rather important details of the Sonic 2.0′s performance and price; if prior tips are on the mark, though, we’ll have our answers (and more devices) in about six weeks.

LG promo confirms 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro for Korea

LG promo confirms 55inch Optimus G Pro for Korea

If you were worried that you might have to wait until Mobile World Congress to learn whether or not a 5.5-inch version of the Optimus G Pro was real, your mind can rest at ease. While hoping to drum up buzz for a launch beyond Japan, the company has ever-so-casually mentioned that at least the South Korean edition of the G Pro has a 5.5-inch, full HD screen — half an inch larger than the Japanese model, and just as large as the panel on the Galaxy Note II. Want to know more? That’s part of the promo. Borrowing a page from Sony, LG promises to reveal more of the phone the more Facebook Likes it receives. While previous tips suggest that the 5.5-inch edition will mostly be a larger take on an already supersized device, it’s still very tempting to click that Like button — just don’t expect one of the mentioned prizes if you live beyond LG’s native borders.

LG teases ‘new series’ of mobile phones with ‘unexpected distinction,’ remains indistinct

LG teases 'new series' of mobile phones, not much else

Offering up its Facebook fans a loving wrapped teaser image, LG Mobile reckons it’s got something up its sleeve. On the social network entry, it notes that the new series will have an “unexpected distinction”, which is hopefully more than just a baffling screen ratio. Will it be ready for MWC in a few weeks? Or will the company go the way of other smartphone makers and just launch whatever it has at its very own event? Who knows? LG does, that’s who.

Lumia 710 for TMobile won't be updated to Windows Phone 78

For reasons that aren’t quite clear, T-Mobile has just confirmed to TmoNews that the Nokia Lumia 710 won’t receive a bump to Windows Phone 7.8. While the update has taken its share of criticisms as a purely cosmetic revision, we’ve a feeling that more than a few folks were looking forward to the world of resizable live tiles — seems like a reasonable expectation, right? Fortunately, even in spite of T-Mobile’s mind-boggling decision, Lumia 710 owners can take the situation into their own hands and manually install the Windows Phone 7.8 upgrade. We’ll keep you posted if we learn anything more, but in the meantime, you can find the carrier’s painful doublespeak after the break.
