Verizon's LTE network launching November 15 with two data cards and over 30 markets? {Engadget}

Jul 20th 2010 6:07PM I heard San Diego is one of the test markets

Verizon's LTE network launching November 15 with two data cards and over 30 markets? {Engadget}

Jul 20th 2010 6:06PM @PeDe It will be an overlay, so existing 3G phones and devices will continue to work on the current 3G network, and only the new devices will be able to use the new LTE service. Expect a hybrid phone in the future and when the footprint covers enough of an area, an LTE only phone.

How-to: stay connected while traveling internationally {Engadget}

Jun 11th 2010 8:40PM @firehazard This is correct, and also applies to T-Mobile if things have not changed. AT&T and T-Mobile have never charged you for receiving text messages while roaming internationally.

Now on the other hand, Sprint charges you $0.20 per received International SMS while in the US, which I find outrageous.

Jun 11th 2010 8:38PM @yeahman Is this something new? As far as I knew gmail SMS was US only, same thing for Google Voice SMS.

Jun 11th 2010 8:34PM @sygyzy Sprint also offers a plan like this. I have used it while roaming in Mexico using my Hero and I was charged $0 for the data I used. They also pro-rate the charges so you can add it before you leave and remove it when you return (AT&T makes you keep it for at least 3 or 6 months I forget). I did also use AT&T's plan with my Blackberry Bold when I was with them. $0 charges after roaming in Mexico and Guatemala and using all kinds of data on the phone.

Sprint's plan also works anywhere in the world if you have a world phone. They don't unfortunately offer you the option of getting a SIM card you could use in any other phone with this plan.

T-Mobile also has an unlimited International Blackberry plan. It is supposed to be for Blackberry data only. When I was with T-Mobile I had it on my plan even though I didn't have a blackberry. I was never charged for data usage in Mexico, but I think that was a bug that might be fixed now.

RIM buys QNX, talks in-car infotainment, 'intelligent peripherals' {Engadget}

Apr 9th 2010 7:11PM I also wonder why the OS experience of QNX was not mentioned. They have a very strong real-time UNIX based system that has been used in embedded systems for a while. Maybe this will be the shot in the arm that the Blackberry OS is in desperate need of.

Autoblog Long-Term Garage Introduction: 2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5GT {Autoblog}

Mar 31st 2010 7:37PM I own a 2008 Spec. B and enjoy it every day. I'll definitely be interested to see how the 2010 model does after AB spends a year with it. I agree with Boxerfanatic when it comes to looks, I prefer the previous model's exterior and interior, but I've always hated the fake wood trim in cars :)

Motorola i1 video tour {Engadget}

Mar 23rd 2010 8:47PM Being a non-commercial PTT user, and knowing a lot of them, I think this will be a very popular phone in other countries that also use iDEN. Data speeds are not fast, but most countries that have an iDEN network will offer cheap unlimited data when the other 3G providers charge a lot for it. People will put up with it, and having WiFi will be great for being at home.

Mercedes Gullwings old and new return to Mexico for Carrera Panamericana revival {Autoblog}

Mar 23rd 2010 8:44PM The Carrera Panamericana was resurrected in 1988 and it has continued since then. It's not exactly as it was in the 50s, the roads are closed along the way, but it is still done over public highways. I watched it many years in a row while living in Chiapas, which is where it started in Tuxtla Gutierrez, and ended in Nuevo Laredo. The last two years the starting point was moved, and I don't know about the finish line. The cars always had to be at least maybe 30 to 40 years old, but could me modified in any way.

Sprint announces seven new WiMAX markets, says 'Let AT&T and Verizon yak about maps and 3G coverage' {Engadget}

Mar 23rd 2010 12:47PM @TheAngryIntern Yeah it seems like lately we haven't been getting much attention. I thought that back in the day Sprint did a lot of testing in San Diego. Since Qualcomm was not very WiMax friendly in the past, maybe Sprint is staying out of their turf for a while.
