Sprint to Launch 17 New 4G LTE Markets on October 28, Including Denver

Sprint went ahead tonight and quietly announced 17 new 4G LTE markets that they plan to fully light up by October 28.

We can only assume that the change means they plan to make these markets live on that day.

The new markets cover areas in all corners of the US, from Colorado to Wisconsin to California to Kentucky to New York. The biggest of the new markets is Denver, followed by Sacramento. The rest can be found below.  (more…)

The Droid Life Show: Episode 71

On today’s episode of the Droid Life Show, we plan to recap the craziness of the last week. Shortly after Tim and I got together for a special DL Show last Wednesday, Google opened up pre-orders for the Nexus 9 and Player, but also pushed out a brand new Android 5.0 preview build. As you now know, we spent the last several days talking about all that is new and awesome about Android 5.0. We also went wild over pre-orders for the new Nexus devices, their accessories, and impending launch dates.

Outside of Nexus and Lollipop news, we also have news on the DROID Turbo front, reviews in for the Galaxy Alpha and Xperia Z3 Compact, a new email app from Google, and more. This should be a packed show, as always. Join us!

Rovio Launches RETRY, a Game That has Nothing to do With Birds

Brace yourself, you might be in for a shocker. Rovio, the company who beats you over the head with countless renditions of its one hit wonder Angry Birds, released a new game this week that has absolutely nothing to do with birds or pigs. Say what?!
