Today, Sprint has announced that in the coming months, they will launch an additional 100 4G LTE markets. What perfect timing for everyone.

The huge list of cities below are the areas that Sprint is currently working on. Still no Portland, OR. (more…)

According to TechCrunch, Verizon has blocked employees from taking vacations between September 21 and September 30 because the next iPhone will launch during that time. Their source didn’t specifically mention that the iPhone was indeed launching on the 21st, but since everyone is expecting Apple to announce the phone on September 12, a launch of a week later matches up to previous releases.

If you don’t mind some extreme shaky-hands syndrome camera work and a guy being overly dramatic about what is to take place, then watch this video immediately. What takes place is the world’s first official drag race scratch test between the iPhone 4S and the Samsung Galaxy SIII.

According to the latest report from comScore, during a three month period ending in April, buyers moving from feature phones to smartphones, instead of feature phone to feature phone, increased almost 10%.
