AT&T Announces New 4G LTE Markets, Rollout to Complete This Summer

This morning, residents in certain parts of this beautiful country of ours will now have access to AT&T’s 4G LTE network. In total, five markets are listed in the new wave, which brings AT&T’s total market count to right on the heel of Verizon’s. The markets include small parts of Alaska, Hawaii, Ohio, and more.

With today’s light ups, AT&T’s LTE network covers 280 million Americans, with complete LTE rollout set to be finalized this summer season.

A list of the new markets is below.  (more…)

Amazon Inks Multi-year Deal With HBO, Bringing HBO GO Programming to Fire TV and Prime Members

Since its release only a couple of weeks ago, the one thing Fire TV from Amazon has really been missing out on, is HBO GO. Both companies, Amazon and HBO, have announced a new multi-year deal, in which Amazon Prime members and owners of the Fire TV will have access to HBO GO’s programming, such as exclusive TV shows, movies, and more.  (more…)

Wednesday Poll: Do You Want to Buy the OnePlus One?

You’ll notice the very specific wording in that title, because no one knows when or how exactly they will be able to buy the newly announced OnePlus One. We know it’s official. We know the full specs. We know it will cost just $299 for the 16GB version and $349 for the 64GB version, but only 100 of them will be available on April 25 through a smash-your-current-phone promo.

After that, OnePlus is using an invite system from those first 100 orders, so hopefully you know someone. Because it could be until May before they go on sale in the announced 16 countries outside of the invite system. May is probably a rough estimate at best, because country availability and stock levels will likely vary greatly. So again, who knows if and when you’ll ever have a chance to buy the OnePlus One.

But that doesn’t mean the total package here doesn’t sound incredibly appealing (even if the phone is quite large). We are talking specs that are in many ways better than that of the Galaxy S5 and One (M8) yet at half the price. This is a pretty insane move from a newcomer – hopefully they can get the sales side of things figured out.

Who wants one?

OnePlus One Specs

The OnePlus One is now official with its jaw-dropping price and insanely limited (plus confusing) availability. Once you can potentially purchase one, though, I’d imagine it will be well worth the $300 and $350 price tags.

After all, OnePlus managed to include the most premium specs of the moment in a phone that is half the price of the Samsung Galaxy S5 at full retail. We are talking the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM, a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 13MP rear Sony camera, 5MP front camera, 16 or 64GB of storage, and a 3100mAh battery, all in a body that is only 8.9mm thick.

The phone should also work quite well on AT&T’s LTE network here in the U.S. It technically supports T-Mobile’s band 4 as well, but the GSM compatibility might not be there, at least according to the official spec sheet below.  (more…)

Humble Mobile Bundle 5 Gets Three More Games

In case the great cause and game selection of the Humble Mobile Bundle 5 did not quite win you over when it went live, you will now have three more games to play, as long as you pay more than the average price (currently sitting at $5.21). Paper Monsters, R-TYPE, and Enviro-Bear 2010 will be joining other great titles such as The Room Two, Carcassonne, and R-TYPE 2, so if you have not bought into the bundle yet, now would be a good time to do so.
