Samsung Illusion

Although the Samsung Illusion name has been tossed around before on some road maps there was never an official announcement made for the device. Now, thanks to a little slip up from Samsung on Flickr, we’re getting a good look at a 3G-only device, but not much else. Specs seem to still be missing for the information but those will come eventually. What we do know though, is that the device is  [Read More…]

AT&T vs. Verizon 4G LTE battle begins this Sunday

AT&T has been advertising “4G” since 2010, but the HSPA+ speeds available on AT&T’s phones were well short of what most would consider to be next generation. Beginning Sunday, September 18, AT&T will introduce a proper 4G network when it powers on LTE in five select markets.

droidapps

V Cast Apps may have been one of the worst attempts at an app store we’ve seen, but Verizon is not giving up. Verizon’s first attempt resulted in an app store that was very difficult to work with (slow and buggy) and had a lack-luster app selection.
