T-Mobile Offers To Pay For Your Verzion iPhone, Google Pixel Device

T-Mobile has upped the ante regarding Verizon Wireless customers. The company announced that it will cover the payments left on your Apple iPhone or Google Pixel if you bring it over from Verizon. Since they work equally well on both networks, the hope is that customers will just keep their phones when using T-Mobile service. The offer is a limited promotion that starts on May 31. It’s the latest push by T-Mobile to extend its lead over rivals by getting you to make the jump. The competition...

Apple And Nokia Resolve Patent Dispute, Sees Future Collaboration

Apple has resolved a patent fight with Finnish telecom equipment maker Nokia and agreed to purchase more of its network products and services. The deal means Nokia will get bigger royalties from Apple for using its mobile phone patents, helping offset the impact of waning demand for its mobile network hardware. Such legal battles are common in the industry but can drag on for years and analysts had not been expecting such a quick resolution to the dispute that started in December. Under the deal...

iPhone 8 Likely To Cap Memory At 3GB

Apple may reduce the capacity of DRAM in its upcoming anniversary iPhones with the rising prices of storage and memory components hitting its profit margins. Apple acknowledged the rising DRAM and NAND prices during its second-quarter earnings call earlier this week. The company expects the pricing pressure to continue in the near term. Those prices, in turn, could impact the memory capacity of the next iPhone. Trendforce, which tracks SSD and DRAM pricing, predicted the iPhone 8 will be capped...

Microsoft’s Enterprise Phone Market Appears To Be Dead

Microsoft last week  confirmed that a year-old plan to focus smartphone sales on the enterprise market died a quiet death. “We had no material Phone revenue this quarter,” said Amy Hood, the company’s CFO, during an earnings call with Wall Street on Thursday. In fact, phone revenue amounted to just $5 million for the three-month stretch, representing a massive decline of 99% from the same period of the prior year. Assuming each Windows smartphone brought $500 to Microsoft, that...

BlackBerry Announces Delay Of KEYone Smartphone

May 1, 2017 by   | Category: Mobile

Enterprise customers anxious to acquire the new BlackBerry KEYone, with its old-fashioned hardware keyboard, will have to wait another month until its May 31 release. The delay isn’t expected to hurt sales much, analysts said, partly because there are 275 million BlackBerry customers worldwide — many of whom may want a newer phone with physical keys. Hardware keyboards have been a hit for years in countries like India and Indonesia, which are mainstays of the BlackBerry and BlackBerry Messenger. The...

BlackBerry’s KeyOne Android Phone To Launch In May

The BlackBerry KeyOne, an Android-based smartphone with an integrated physical keyboard, will be available in the U.S. and Canada from May 31, the phone’s maker said Thursday. TCL Communications, the Chinese company that acquired rights to produce BlackBerry-brand handsets, originally had said the phone would go on sale in April, so the delay may disappoint potential users. This could be a bad time to test the patience of potential buyers, as Samsung and LG are both heavily promoting their...

Is Apple Having Problem With The Forthcoming iPhone 8?

According to Cowen and Company analyst Timothy Arcuri Apple company is struggling with low production yields on the revolutionary edge-to-edge display rumoured for the Apple iPhone 8. He thinks that this will mean that the outfit will have to dump the embedded the Touch ID fingerprint scanner technology, which until now has been housed within the physical button, beneath the glass display. Arcuri believes Apple is looking at dropping the ambitious new technology for another less-exciting design...

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 Expected To Do Robust Enterprise Business

Enterprise customers are expected to purchase the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ in large numbers, given the phones’ strong focus on worker productivity as well as security. IDC analyst Bryan Bassett predicted that “millions” of enterprise customers will buy one of the devices, some of them partly out of the pent-up demand created when the enterprise-focused Note7 was recalled globally after some units overheated and caught fire. “Samsung won’t have any trouble selling these...

Was Apple Really Selling Bricked Phones?

Was Apple Really Selling Bricked Phones?

Australian users have a bit of a DIY mentality – like New Zealanders they can’t see the point of paying a fortune for something that they can get a mate to fix cheaper.  Normally they would only take it in to Apple if the problem cannot be fixed with masking tape and number eight fencing wire.  Apple has a huge problem with this. It makes a fortune charging fees to have its spotty blue shirts repairing things that most uses could fix with a screwdriver and WD40. According to the Australian...

Samsung Pleased As Galaxy S8 Pre-orders Surpass S7 Launch

Pre-orders for Samsung Electronics Co Ltd’s flagship Galaxy S8 smartphone have surpassed those of its predecessor S7, the firm’s mobile chief said on Thursday, which suggests many consumers are undeterred by last year’s Galaxy Note 7 fires. Strong initial demand for the S8 will be encouraging for a firm recovering from one of the worst product safety failures in tech history, which ended in the Note 7’s swift withdrawal. The new smartphone has received favorable reviews...

Are Smartphones On The Way Out?

This is not an extremely late April 1st, and we admit that it is a little early given that its replacement has not shown up yet, but we predict that it will go the way of the dodo, the Norwegian Blue, the bleeper and the Crackberry. OK it is probably a few years off, but the technology is so persuasive that its death will be longer than the exit of a hero in a South American soap opera. For a while now smartphone sales have slowed. Basically the structure developed by Nokia and stolen by Apple...

FCC Won’t Support Move To All In-flight Mobile Calls

The chairman of the Federal Communications Commission has announced that he is proposing to pull the plug on a 2013 regulatory proceeding that had sought to lift the ban on mobile phones on U.S. airlines. The FCC said in 2013 that it would consider allowing air travelers to make mobile phone calls but never finalized it. “I stand with airline pilots, flight attendants, and America’s flying public against the FCC’s ill-conceived 2013 plan to allow people to make cellphone calls on planes. I...
