AT&T is aggressively expanding the coverage of its LTE network, and also expanding the lineup of phones that take advantage of that network. The LG Nitro HD is the third LTE Android phone released for AT&T thus far and while it shares many features with the previous two phones it is also able to differentiate itself from the pack. The focal point of the LG Nitro HD is the amazing 4.5 inch 720p screen, which is the first 720p screen on any AT&T phone. Looking down the spec sheet of the Nitro it can go toe-to-toe with any other phone on the market, and we wanted to know if it was able to live up to expectations.
I have the pleasure of reviewing an LG Nitro HD, but before I have to get it out of the dang box. Here is a quick video of the unboxing, and first impressions. The LG Nitro HD is the third LTE phone on AT&T's ever-growing LTE network. The timing is nearly perfect seeing as the San Francisco area is one of the newest markets to get the LTE goodness. The Nitro is dubbed "HD" for good reason, it has a beautiful 4.5inch 720p screen.
AT&T announced today that they will be doing a minor facelift to their smartphone data plans. AT&T will be increasing prices across the board, and be providing a slight bump to the amount of data provided for each plan. Basically each data plan currently offered today will increase in cost by $5 and also come with an increase in data allowed. AT&T is saying they are making the change because they want to help prevent customers from data overage charges.
Name: LG DoublePlay
Price: $49.99 with two year contract from T-Mobile
- Second screen
- Slide out keyboard
- Bad battery life
The LG DoublePlay is the world’s first phone to feature two touch screens and a slide out QWERTY keyboard. The second screen is nestled between the split keyboard and offers users a chance to use both screens for different tasks.
AT&T made it's LTE service official last week in 11 new markets, two of which are in the San Francisco area. I just got my hands on a AT&T LTE powered tablet to do some network speed tests, and to be honest, I'm in love. I will continue to do more testing, but the speed is frankly amazing, and over twice as fast as my speedtest.net results using my home AT&T DSL.
Nokia CEO Stephen Elop came out on stage to announce their newest WP7 phone, even before it's Lumia 800 has hit the U.S market. The Lumia 900 is the first Nokia phone with an LTE antenna, and it will be an AT&T exclusive device. The Lumia 900 is almost exactly the same as the Lumia 800, but with a few important changes.
AT&T announced a ton of new LTE devices today at it's pre-CES keynote presentation. The party got started with Android phones:
Sony Experia Ion: Sony's first LTE phone, Android powered, and features a 12 Megapixel camera. Pictured above.
This rumor couldn't come at a better time in my life. Just as I am getting depressed about not buying a Galaxy Nexus today Pocketnow is reporting that the Samsung Galaxy Note my be coming to AT&T's LTE network. The Galaxy Note might be one of the most polarizing cell phones to be released in a long time, people either love or hate the idea of this phone.
For all you AT&T 4G fanatics in the Bay Area your time has come. Engadget is reporting that last night AT&T flipped the switch on it's 4G LTE network in the area. This is most likely just to test out the system, and not official or stable at this point. It seems that both SF and NYC are going to be next on the list for LTE service.
