It's not quite a tablet, but it's not quite a phone either. With two 3.5-inch displays working side-by-side, this unique device by Sprint looks to be something unlike anything else, and it'll be revealed at an event later tonight.
When it comes to the tablet market, it seems like there's a new innovation every few months. And this is potentially the biggest innovation yet, as LG and T-Mobile become the first to offer a glasses-free 3D tablet.
Samsung's Galaxy S brand will take its next step in a matter of weeks, as a 4G version of its Vibrant phone for T-Mobile has just been announced for release later this month.
LTE-equipped phones may soon be heading into the next generation, as ARM has announced it will introduce new chips to the 4G technology. LTE is currently being used in Verizon's 4G network.
The "Sidekick" brand that defined a generation of early smartphones back in the day is set to make a comeback, as T-Mobile works to make its 4G product offering as recognizable as possible.
Attention all Sprint customers. If you currently own a smartphone and are locked into a data plan, you will be subject to a $10 increase in your monthly service charges beginning next month.
T-Mobile customers who bought Samsung's Vibrant phone last year have been patiently waiting to receive a firmware upgrade to Android 2.2, which was first made available several months ago.
Now that the Verizon iPhone is official, the mobile rumor mill is turning its attention to other things. Other things, that is, like the Samsung Vibrant 4G, which is rumored to be the single fastest phone to ever run on T-Mobile.
All these newfangled smartphones can really do a lot of powerful stuff. But could they really replace you computer? Motorola seems to think so.
While Research in Motion's upcoming tablet isn't gaining a whole lot of buzz, the news at CES that Sprint will release a 4G version of it in several months is starting to turn some heads.
We all knew it was coming. Motorola has created the most prolific Android phones yet and it was only a matter of time before the company made official its new Android tablet product. It doesn't carry the instantly recognizable "Droid" name, but perhaps it won't need to.
It brought the very first Android phone to the world and was the first manufacturer to build a 4G phone in North America, and now HTC is bringing its legendary "first" status to AT&T's 4G party as well.
Sprint is just running laps around everyone else when it comes to the 4G competition. With two phones already running on its next-generation network, it's already announcing a third - and it's coming out soon.
It's looking more and more like Verizon will focus on its 4G offerings at next month's CES festivities, and may leave any sort of iPhone announcement for a later date.
Sprint launched its 4G network early this year to a lot of fanfare. T-Mobile launched its one kind of under the radar. AT&T won't be ready until later into 2011. So when it comes to 4G at CES, Verizon will be the one that shines.
When it comes to garnering interest for CES, some companies are more creative than others. Some simply send out mass e-mails with their latest press releases and a blanket invitation for meetings. Then there are companies like HTC.
Is it possible we could see a "Droid 4G"?
It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, but Verizon has confirmed the widely assumed this week, as we now know for sure the company will be showing off 4G products at next month's CES.
That's thanks to a cutely-worded Tweet on Verizon's official Twitter account, which reads:
T-Mobile wants its customers to know that even if they're not eligible to upgrade to 4G yet, or may not have enough money to buy its 4G phones, it still cares about them.
When it comes to 4G, there are lots of claims floating around. Sprint claims to have the most powerful, T-Mobile says it has the biggest, and Verizon promises to have the fastest. But some of these claims need to come with footnotes.
