When the Motorola Photon 4G debuts through Sprint later this month it will be Motorola’s first WiMAX smartphone and Sprint’s first international 4G smartphone that is capable of working on GSM networks around the world. Powered by a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor with each core running at 1GHz, 1GB of RAM and with 16GB of built-in memory the device will come with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) pre-installed.
The recent 3D
home entertainment revolution – and I use the term loosely – may be centered on big screen TVs
but 3D is also increasingly finding its way into mobile devices. Nintendo will be first out of the gates this week when its much-anticipated 3DS
is released, while the world's first 3D smartphone, the LG Optimus 3D
, is rumored to be getting a June release. Now HTC is getting in on the 3D action with Sprint
announcing the upcoming release of the 4G
-capable HTC EVO 3D smartphone, which will be appearing alongside the equally 4G-capable HTC EVO View 4G tablet.
Google has announced that its Nexus S Android smartphone will shortly be available on Sprint's WiMAX/4G network. The curvaceous device benefits from a Super AMOLED display that's said to offer an HD-like multimedia experience, Samsung's application processor, a couple of cameras and a decent helping of onboard memory. The Sprint deal comes with the added sweetener of Google Voice support, which holds the promise of using one number for numerous phones.
After a gradual build-up throughout 2009 the roll-out of Android mobile phone handsets is really starting to snowball - and that means more choice for consumers. If the iDEN Motorola i1
and the WiMAX HTC EVO 4G
aren't your thing (or your network), you might want to take a look at the multimedia-savvy Samsung Galaxy S
, the Dell Aero
and the budget-friendly Kyocera Zio
. If the waiting game isn't your thing, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10
and the HTC Desire
are just about to drop in the UK and will arrive shortly in the US.
It's one thing to build a 4G network, but it's another thing entirely to offer a drool-worthy 4G handset that can make the most of it - and Sprint has delivered a real doozy
with the HTC EVO 4G.
Anyone familiar with a loss of internet connection will attest to the absolute standstill of productivity it can cause, and in an office environment it can near spell disaster if not dealt with swiftly. With a view to counteracting this issue and possibly gearing up towards the shift to increasingly cellular technologies, Netgear has unveiled the Wireless-N 300 router with DSL Modem Mobile Broadband Edition – or rather, the DGN 2200M. The router combines 802.11n wireless with an integrated ADSL+2 modem as well as optional cellular connectivity through an external 3G/4G/WiMAX modem.
One of the new releases attracting a lot of attention at CTIA is the Samsung SWD-M100 Mondi, a mobile WiMAX enabled handheld device that is designed for use with the Clear mobile WiMAX service from Clearwire. The touch screen Mondi includes a slide out lower lip QWERTY keypad and, according to Samsung, ‘many of the powerful features and uses of a laptop computer or netbook,’ in a unit that fits in your pocket.
November 16, 2005 - Samsung has demonstrated the WiBro (Wireless Broadband; Korean brand name of Mobile WiMAX) mobile phones and systems at the "2005 APEC IT Exhibition" during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) in Busan, South Korea. Various applications such as broadcasting, home networking, video telephony, VOD, and navigations were presented at the exhibition with Samsung's latest WiBro (Mobile WiMAX) handsets. As WiBro gets prepared to be fully implemented and utilised in the market next year, Samsung also put on display both the mobile phone-typed H1000 and the PDA-typed M8000.
July 25, 2005 ADAPTIX has been demonstrating mobile WiMAX capabilities in an automobile to clients in recent weeks, where it simultaneously receives mobile Voice over IP calls, streaming video content such as feature-length movies and the transfer of large files, at throughput of up to 2.5 Mbps while travelling at vehicular speeds through the coverage area. The technology is based on the forthcoming 802.16e wireless standard, expected to be ratified by the WiMAX Forum and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) later this year.
