For now, it would appear that the AT&T variant of the HTC One sports a completely unlockable bootloader. By using HTC’s own HTCdev site and generating the proper key, your device can be free to exploitation, as long as AT&T and HTC don’t go fixing the problem.
Over the weekend, an internal document from Staples hinted at which dates we can expect to see the Galaxy S4 become available on three out of the four major U.S. carriers. According to the sheet, AT&T will first receive Samsung’s next flagship starting April 26, followed by T-Mobile on May 1 and Verizon a whole month later on May 30.
Curious about LG’s next flagship and when we can expect it to arrive on our shores? According to those close to the matter, the Optimus G Pro is set to make its way to the U.S. via AT&T, with a rumored launch date of some time in May, but we are also hearing June. The Optimus G Pro launched in Japan with a 5″ HD display, but apparently the American variant is set to come with a 5.5″ display instead, just like last year’s Galaxy Note 2.
Today, AT&T is launching a few more 4G LTE markets to go along with the well-sized list that went live earlier this month. Starting now, grape growers down in California can access 4G LTE on their compatible AT&T devices, as well as folks in Jackson, TN and even Kalamazoo, Mich.
On a funny note, every time I hear “Kalamazoo,” I sing the little T-Mobile 4G jingle. “One, two, Kalamazoo.”
In some type of twisted dark humor, AT&T announced today their plans to bring a 1Gbps Internet service to the city of Austin, TX. If you have been following the news of Google Fiber, they too made their expansion into the city of 820K residents official yesterday morning. So, for anyone not living in Austin, TX this must just seem like the worst thing ever.
This morning, Boingo, the “WiFi industry’s leading services provider,” announced a global WiFi roaming agreement with AT&T. AT&T customers subscribed to the carrier’s 300MB or 800M Data Global Add-On packages traveling in most International airports can now gain access to Boingo’s hotspots and enjoy up to 1GB of free data. On the reverse side, Boingo customers can connect to AT&T’s public network of WiFi hotspots throughout the country.
