We know a lot of you are very eager to learn more about AT&T’s third 4G phone, the Samsung Infuse 4G, and we’ve got some good news for you: it’s almost here. That pic you see above? That’s Walmart advertising the Infuse 4G for a very solid $178.88 on two-year contract with data plan alongside a nice little sticker saying it’s coming May 2011 (click on pic to enlarge). Clicking on the pic of the Infuse 4G on Walmart’s site (it’s on page 9 in the ad) brings up a pop-up– shown below– listing the already familiar specs of the Infuse 4G (8 megapixel camera, 4.5 inch Super AMOLED screen and 1.2 GHZ processor) and a note that it’s available in most stores. Well, we called up a couple of local Walmarts and while they told us they don’t currently have the Infuse 4G in stock, they said they should have them in by the end of this week.
And just to add a little more fuel to the fire here, AT&T and Samsung have sent out invites today for an event this Thursday, May 5th in New York City (though what exactly will be announced at this event is still unknown). Unfortunately we won’t be able to make it out to this event in person, but don’t worry, we’ll have whatever is announced covered for you right here.
So hang tight Infuse 4G fans, it’s almost here.
So Verizon users– you’ve got an upgrade coming up sometime over the next couple of months and while you like some of the phones already out there, you really wanna know what Verizon’s got planned during the next few weeks or months so you don’t go out and buy something only to really regret it a week later. We’re here to help. While not all of these are confirmed to be coming to Verizon (some are just our best guesses based on rumors we’ve been hearing), here are 5 phones that are said to be on their way to Verizon that if you have an upgrade should be really excited for.
We all know T-Mobile’s got some pretty powerful 4G phones coming out this summer (*cough* HTC Sensation 4G *cough*) but what if you’re looking for a powerful, fast all touchscreen 4G phone right now? For that, we’d like to turn your attention to the Samsung Galaxy S 4G, a phone that’s stylish but quite the powerful beast too. Is it worthy of being your next phone though? For all that info and much, much more read on in our full teen review below.
Remember the Samsung Android 4G LTE Phone Verizon and Samsung announced back in January when Verizon announced their upcoming group of 4 new 4G LTE phones? Well, today it’s finally gotten a real name, release date and price: the Samsung Droid Charge coming to a Verizon store near you on April 28th (a week from today) for $299.99 with a new 2 year contract a $29.99 unlimited data plan.
So what will that $299.99 get you? A pretty powerful 4G phone with specs like: an awesome 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, 8 megapixel back camera and 1.3 megapixel front camera for higher quality video chat, Android 2.2 with Swype keyboard and Mobile Hotspot (so you can share your 4G with up to 10 devices. And Verizon is offering this free for a “limited time”), and a 1 GHZ processor (so everything on your phone can keep with that fast 4G awesomeness). No word on the battery life here (Verizon’s first 4G phone– the HTC ThunderBolt– has been said to have pretty bad battery life when on 4G, like only lasting a couple of hours and not even getting close to a full day bad), but I guess we’ll find that out soon enough.
So Verizon users– are you gonna go with this first 4G Droid as your next phone or are you gonna save the $100 and go with something like a ThunderBolt from Amazon (which offers it for a much more affordable $200 with contract) or 3G-only iPhone 4 instead?
So you’re on AT&T, you’ve got an upgrade coming up sometime over the next couple of months and while you like some of the phones already out there, you really wanna know what AT&T’s got coming out during the next few weeks or months so you don’t go out and buy something only to really regret it a week later. While not all of these are confirmed to be coming to AT&T (some are just our best guesses based on rumors we’ve been hearing), here are 5 phones that are said to be on their way to AT&T and that any AT&T user with an upgrade should be really excited for.
T-Mobile Gives LG G2X and Samsung Sidekick 4G Official Pricing and Release Dates– Get Ready For April 20th
Remember those rumored pricing and release dates for two of T-Mobile’s hottest upcoming phones, the LG G2X and Samsung Sidekick 4G? Well, we just heard from T-Mobile and guess what, it’s now official. Starting in twelve days, April 20th, both of these sick new phones will be available at your local T-Mobile store for $99.99 on a new 2 year contract and $30 a month unlimited data plan for the Sidekick 4G (or $149.99 with new 2 year contract and T-Mobile’s much more affordable $10 250 MB plan. This plan is great for light email, updating your Facebook or some quick browsing of the web but not a lot of video watching over 4G. If you do plan on watching a lot of video, web browsing or constantly checking Facebook over 4G we’d recommend the unlimited plan) or $199.99 with a new 2 year contract and unlimited data plan for the LG G2X.
We checked out both of these beasts down at CTIA last month and we were very impressed with both. We found both to be extremely fast and we really loved the large screen on the G2X and the awesome keyboard on the Sidekick 4G. For all the details and our full first impressions on these bad boys see our first looks here (G2X, Sidekick 4G).
So T-Mobile users, if you’re looking for a new phone what’s it gonna be: Sidekick 4G, G2X or some other powerful 4G phone like the Galaxy S 4G or myTouch 4G?
CTIA’s been a pretty big week for T-Mobile, with their LG G-Slate and G2X and of course the Samsung Sidekick 4G. Today at CTIA we were able to get our hands on Samsung’s new take on the hit Sidekick line, the Sidekick 4G. So, what do we think? Read on for the full teen first take!
Samsung has been pretty quiet when it came to new info on its Galaxy Tab line of tablets while everyone else has been announcing or releasing their own. Today that all ended as Samsung announced two new editions of its Galaxy Tab line, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1– and both look to give the iPad 2 and all other tablets a strong run for your money.
T-Mobile Brings The Heat At CTIA- Announces 4G Packing LG G2X and Adds More Details on Sidekick 4G and LG G-Slate
While they may soon become AT&T, until that finally happens T-Mobile is still going strong, today taking the wraps off a new impressive 4G phone for its already loaded 4G lineup, the LG G2X, and finally sharing some more info on two of their very anticipated new devices: the Sidekick 4G and LG G-Slate tablet. Let’s get to it! More >
AT&T isnt the only one making news in this day before CTIA. Sprint– who plans to have a crazy CTIA of their own– has today officially announced that before Spring is out they will be bringing the Samsung Nexus S to their 4G network with the appropriately named Nexus S 4G.
Beyond packing that Sprint 4G goodness this is pretty much the same Nexus S that was announced last year, though it’s still a pretty solid phone nonetheless with specs like a 4 inch high-res “Contour Display” with anti-fingerprint coating (in other words– a really nice, sharp screen that will make every thing on it look nice and clear. Oh, and the screen itself is curved — yes, curved– so that the phone will feel more natural in your hand particularly when your using it as a phone), 1 GHZ Samsung Hummingbird processor (for keeping things running fast and smooth), 5 megapixel rear camera with flash and second front camera for video chat (like the Epic 4G), 16 GB of built-in storage, WiFi (with support for the latest N networks), GPS and of course the latest and greatest version of Android for phones: Android 2.3 “Gingerbread.”
The Nexus S 4G will be available “this Spring” (so most likely very soon considering its almost April) for $200 with a new year contract and data plan.
