Our Canadian neighbors have already been given a taste of Rogers' extremely data-friendly LTE, but now the carrier is officially rolling out its LTE-Advanced network across 12 different cities. In fact, it's the first North Amercian carrier to launch an LTE-A network, period. So? Well, that means denizens of the poutine-filled country can stream much more video than you can, faster than you can. And since Rogers' new tech is a combination of AWS and its 700MHz spectrum (which is the same frequency some US AT&T clientele are also accustomed to), customers will see a big improvement on their data service while indoors, in a basement or other fringe areas. Head below for the full list of cities getting upgraded.

It's no secret that the US wireless market is saturated, and that most people who want a mobile device have already purchased one by now. Naturally, this means that the national players in the industry are looking for other points of revenue to aid future growth. AT&T is proving that it's one of the most successful in this venture by announcing today that it's activated a heap of connected devices last quarter -- to the tune of 1.3 million. That's a healthy number, especially since the company accumulated only a tenth of that in the previous quarter. This genre refers to a wide range of gadgets that come with an AT&T SIM card inside, but the most interesting part of this announcement is that over 500,000 of those activated devices come from connected cars.

Wireless price wars are good for consumers but not-so-great for carriers' bottom lines. AT&T on Wednesday reported earnings of $0.63 per share on revenues of $32.96 billion, which slightly missed the consensus estimate of $0.64 per share on revenues of $33.22 billion. But while AT&T's earnings only just missed expectations, Bloomberg reports that the company also cut its estimates for revenue growth on the year amid fierce competition with smaller rivals T-Mobile and Sprint.
Motorola has been going through quite the change over the past few years, transitioning from producing high-end handsets to taking a more modest approach. 2013’s Moto X was the beginning of something new for Motorola Mobility; finding a balance between a high price point and functionality. While the 2013 Moto X didn’t quite strike that…
For one reason or another, Samsung and AT&T haven’t found time (or whatever) to launch the KitKat update for the Galaxy Note 8.0. That’s changing now with users getting their goodies as we speak. The new firmware, version JZO54K.I467UCANI2, comes with all the latest bells and whistles included in Android 4.4 (security and usability improvements…
AT&T, the nation’s second-largest carrier, on Friday morning started accepting pre-orders for Apple’s iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3, both of which were announced at a media event yesterday. This comes as a bit of surprise as Apple’s own webstore, which went offline more than three hours ago, has come online with pre-orders for the new tablets after AT&T.

After years of rumors that Apple would introduce its own type of SIM card, it appears to have snuck the tech into today's new iPad announcement (there's a history here, the original iPad introduced the Micro SIM). The Apple website says LTE-equipped models of its new tablets (sold in the US and UK) have a built-in Apple SIM that lets owners switch between short term plans across a variety of participating carriers, right on the tablet itself (you can see a picture of the new option under settings after the break). That list includes AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint in the US, and EE in the UK, ut notably not Verizon.

AT&T is no longer in the business of selling Beats Music subscriptions, reports MacRumors. The site spoke with an employee for the carrier who said he’s been instructed to stop offering the service to customers as a monthly plan add-on.
Additionally, AT&T has pulled all references to Beats Music from its website, and no longer offers the option to sign up for the service when selecting a new phone plan. Beats Music has also removed “Subcribe with AT&T” from its website.... Read the rest of this post here

AT&T, Asus and Intel announced the PadFone X mini smartphone/tablet combo. The device will start selling on October 24th for $199.99 requiring no contract signing activities. Inside, the mini packs Intel’s dual-core Atom Z2560 CPU, a single gig of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage, 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras. The phone part has a 4.5-inch…
If you liked ASUS' PadFone X but weren't willing to pay that much for the combination of an Android smartphone with a tablet shell, AT&T might soon have what you're looking for. The carrier is bringing the PadFone X mini to the US on October 24th, when it will sell for $200 to GoPhone's prepaid customers. There's a lot of hardware here for the money, although it won't surprise you to hear that ASUS makes sacrifices to give you two devices for the price of one. The smartphone half is a bit better than the regular PadFone mini thanks to its larger 4.5-inch screen, but you're still looking at a dual-core Atom processor, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front shooter. You're also docking into a 7-inch tablet which houses little more than a front camera and an extra battery, so don't expect a night-and-day difference when you use the bigger screen. With that said, the PadFone X mini beats getting a budget smartphone by itself -- give it a look if you'd rather not buy a separate tablet.
