Xinhua, China's official condition news agency confirms today that the iphone 5S/5C will be launched on China Mobile. China's biggest cellphone carrier.
It's December 18. That's when China Mobile will begin delivering 4G LTE services in the united states. The very first three metropolitan areas to obtain 4G are Beijing, Guangzhou, and Chongqing, with Shanghai because of follow later on. December 18 can also be when China Mobile will begin selling the apple iphone 5S and apple iphone 5C, ending many years of speculation regarding when Apple's wares will ultimately achieve the world's greatest company (China Mobile has over 700 million clients).
This launch is going to be huge for Apple. To date China Mobile has gathered around 42 million apple iphones on its network, but individuals are gray market imports - and products that can't make use of the carrier's own flavor of 3rd generation (or 4G).
The apple iphone 5S and apple iphone 5C will clearly support both TD-LTE and TD-SCDMA (China Mobile's 3rd generation), meaning the very first time the carrier's clients who love Apple products can get to make use of high-speed data on such mobile phone models. This, combined using the Chinese Year around the corner, implies that apple iphone sales in China should skyrocket.
In the other end of the spectrum, China Mobile needs to possess 1,000 yuan ($162) 4G LTE-capable phones available within the other half of the coming year, making certain that everybody in China can usually benefit from our prime-speed revolution.
LG Mobile recently released a teaser announcement that features a white gift box with a pink ribbon that is suggestive of the letter "L", which is a popular range of LG mobile products. While it does not actually mention the actual release of a particular gadget, one will naturally assume that it's going to be a new L-series smartphone. Around the same time last year, these series were introduced in the market at the Mobile World Congress.
The L-series are quite popular with LG patrons and within a year since the first handset of this range was released; already there are 6 handsets under this assortment.
In January, there was quite a buzz about new "tier-one handsets" that will be released for 2013. LG has always been underrated in mobile tech development and people are sure that there is some big announcement coming from them on the next Mobile World Congress.

Mobile phone technology has come a long way since the first mobile phone call was made 40 years ago today, changing life forever- but there is a lot more innovation to look forward to, according to one expert.
It was back on April 3 1973 that Motorola employee Martin Cooper made a call in New York on a Motorola DynaTAC - widely regarded globally as the first public cellphone call.
Something of a brick - you would be probably better off mugging someone with it than for it - the first mobile phone was used by Cooper to phone a rival at AT&T's Bell Labs on 3 April 1973.
We can imagine the response that got, but expect that the call was rather short anyway, particularly as the phone had terrible battery life, weighed 2lb and Cooper was probably sick of holding it up to his head. Mobile phones hit the UK in the mid 1980s, but were expensive and still rather large.
Samsung, who owns half the smartphone market on the planet, claims 2013 will be the year when it separates itself from bitter rival Apple. The Korean technology giant is the world's largest maker of mobile phones and aims to ship a record 510 million handsets in 2013.
That would be around a 20% increase from the estimated 420 million devices this year, according to Korean Times, it shipped around 288 million handsets through the first nine months of the year and is expecting a global Christmas bump.
Aside of its Galaxy smartphones and tablets, which have emerged as the main competitors to Apple's iPhones and iPads, Samsung is planning to release a lineup of devices powered by Microsoft's Windows 8 mobile operating system. It will also push products that support TIZEN software, which Samsung jointly developed with semiconductor rival Intel.
The plan contrasts a previous outlook by leading market researcher Gartner, that predicted the Korean firm to sell between 250 million and 300 million smartphones next year. In 2011, Samsung sold 97.4 million smartphones, up from 23.9 million and 0.6 million in 2010 and 2009, respectively.
Analysis from HIS iSuppli, another research firm, noted that Samsung is set to seize the global mobile handset market's top ranking this year, ending the 14-year reign of Nokia. The report projects Samsung will account for 29 percent of worldwide mobile shipments, up from 24 percent in 2011, while Nokia's share will drop to 24 percent, down from 30 percent last year.
We want to congratulate Samsung for its continued success in the mobile devices market.
Samsung has announced the winners to the mobile application boot camp took place last year, more than 120 high school students vied to develop the next big thing in mobile applications and compete for the $20,000 Grand Prize scholarship.
The first winner to walk away with a $20,000 scholarship is Joseph Romano, a tenth grader with his app called Better4All. Next to win the $10,000 scholarship is Sophia Li, an eleventh grader for her SoundUP app and finally the $5,000 winner is Ofri Harlev for his app Karma Trader.
Congratulations to all the winners.
-Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), the No. 1 mobile phone provider in the United States and the No. 1 smartphone provider worldwide1, recognized the top five students and their mobile application concepts developed during the 2012 Mobile Application Boot Camps.
Grand prize winner Joseph Romano, a tenth grader at Arlington High School in Arlington, MA, received a $20,000 scholarship for his Better4All volunteer application. Romano's Better4All mobile application is a crowd-sourced service which allows users within a specific region to report and respond to volunteer opportunities within three main categories: road hazards, off-road issues and volunteer positions. This call-to-action application encourages users to identify areas in their community that need emergency and philanthropic assistance.

It is encouraging to see the creativity these students have and the desire to empower change through technology."
Sophia Li, an eleventh grader at Lowell High School in San Francisco, received second place and a $10,000 scholarship for her SoundUP app. By allowing users to "piggyback" on multiple phone speakers, SoundUP delivers a synchronized, extended speaker system. SoundUP not only brings people together through the power of music, but also delivers on convenience, personalization and versatility.
The third place prize of a $5,000 scholarship was awarded to Ofri Harlev, an eleventh grader at Lowell High School in San Francisco. Harlev created the Karma Trader application to bring communities together by identifying and promoting citizens' unique skill sets, such as carpentry or health care.

It's been a couple of year since the Galaxy Tab 7 and Galaxy Tab 10 were released, even with a few intensive fights with Apple over the patents lawsuits, Samsung will likely to announced a their third generator of the Galaxy Tab devices.
Rumor has it that the newest Galaxy Tab 3 tablets aka "Santos" will be unveiled, and just like their predecessors, they will come in a 7- and 10.1-inch form factor. We have no idea what the resolution will be, however. The processor of choice is also shrouded by mystery at this time.
On the other hand, AndroidCentral claims that both Galaxy Tab 3 models sport a 5-megapixel main camera. There will also be 3G and Wi-Fi-only variants of the two devices. As far as model names are concerned, they are said to be GT-P3200, GT-P3210, GT-P5200 and GT-P5210. Both the 7- and 10-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 should be on the market within the first half of 2013.
Something to look forward at the Mobile World Congress, and we will keep you updated.
The latest round of reports have Samsung's Galaxy S4 coming to market this April, following an unveiling at a March "Unpacked" event in the United States. According to some Korean newspaper this is about the Galaxy S IV. The Mobile unpacked date would be March 22.
The source also adds some new info about the Galaxy S IV. Developed under the codename "Altius(J)," it would sell in both black and white models, and feature wireless charging capabilities. Samsung will sell a wireless charging kit, to juice up the device's 2,600mAh battery.

This year, The Korean electronics giant will be holding off on any major announcements at Mobile World Congress later this month, according to a person familiar with its launch plans. As with last year, Samsung will likely hold its own separate event to launch the latest iteration of its flagship Galaxy S franchise.
Furthermore, some very fresh rumors and leaks suggest that Samsung is already planning to attack Apple right on its home turf, by announcing the Galaxy S4 in the U.S. in March. A few weeks later, the handset should be launched in various markets, with early-to-mid April being a potential release window for the Galaxy S4.

It is quite obvious to say that mobile phones have become an integral part of our modern lifestyle. Many of us cannot imagine living without a mobile phone. At some extent, it may drive them crazy. The industry of mobile never seems to show any sign of slowing down considering that the need for more sophisticated and more convenient ways of communication keeps on increasing. Furthermore, we have found that a mobile phone have been more functional than ever before.
Lately, the idea of unblocking your mobile phones has become a new trend in many countries. More and more mobile phone users are very interested in this issue and wonder if they can do that process on their own device.
When you purchase a new mobile phone, it is very likely that it is locked to a certain network. It would be almost impossible for you to change or use some other networks because the original network provider locks your mobile phone so that it can only work with their SIM cards. Most of the time, we have to buy a new cell phone if we like to change the network. Many mobile phone users are just too afraid to try to unlock this traditional system as they believe that it may harm their device. To tell you the truth, this is nothing more than a false misconception. There would be no harm done to your mobile phone to have it unlocked. All you need to do is entering the unlock code using the keypad that is all. There is no reason for you to worry about your mobile phone. It will stay safe and fully functional after this simple process. You can buy the codes local shops, online from providers like SafeUnlockCode or from your network if they provide this service.
Unlocking a mobile phone has become the latest craze in the mobile phone industry. Before you actually unlock your own mobile device, it would be much better if you discover 10 reasons why you should unlock your mobile phone in the following paragraphs.
The process of mobile phone unlocking is pretty easy yet the benefits that you will gain are staggering.
Here are some reasons why you should do that to your own mobile phone;
1. Most mobile phones come with unlocked system
The mobile phones available in the stores are mostly locked, it is almost impossible to find the ones that are not locked. This system does not allow you to change your networks and it is closely associated with the marketing strategy of the mobile phone service providers. Unlocking your mobile phone will give you the freedom to use any kind of network service providers that you like.
2. It gives you the opportunity to get more affordable rates
The industry of mobile phone networks has to be one of the most thriving businesses. Many service providers are competing in getting more customers by offering good quality services with lower rates. This will lead us to the need to change our networks pretty frequently. It will be possible only when we unblock the mobile device.
3. Unblocking mobile phones for more flexibility
Switching from a mobile phone network to another has become a necessity this day and an unblocked cell phone will give you the flexibility that you require.
4. Keeps you from purchasing new mobile phone
Just because you need to switch your mobile phone network, it does not mean that you have to buy a new gadget. It would cost you plenty of money. Most of the time this new habit is encouraged by the cheaper rates offered by other mobile service providers
5. Save more money from switching networks or changing your SIM cards
The tariff war in the market today is just outrages. It is very easy for the mobile phone users to have a change of heart in a matter of a few days. It is very reasonable since we can save our money by doing so.
6. Making more money from selling your unblocked mobile phone
For some reason, we decide to buy a new mobile phone. It should be very helpful if we can get more money from selling our old one. In order to increase the resale value of your old phone, it would be best of you unlock it in the first place. This option also allows you to sell your old phone much faster as you can easily offer your old phone to more people rather than to a group of people from a certain network.
7. Allows you use more than a single SIM card on your phone
After you unblock your mobile phone, you can use it with any SIM card that you want. This gives you the chance to use different phone numbers.
8. The unlocking process will not cause any damage at all to your phone
9. Increasing the value of your purchase and make it more useful to yourself

New Facebook feature which was spotted with a couple of users showing them when their online buddies were on web or mobile versions of Facebook. I was relayed through Facebook it's an evaluation. Now, Facebook states it's getting folded out globally.
As we mentioned yesterday, we think that Facebook is working on enhancing its messaging services as a way to keep the service evolving, and catching the attention of those who may not be using it as much as they could be to communicate.
This is also about Facebook shifting around where it gives you information: it already provides some of this detail but in a different way: today if a user is sending a message from a mobile device, the recipient can see that detail on the message itself. Add "mobile" or "desktop" into the status window preempts that.
Better plan choices are coming for AT&T customers who feel like the usual 20GB data limit is a bit short for them. Newer pooled plans to be offered allow more internet usage as well as calls and text messages.
Customers can now choose 20-50 GB plans for all their mobile data requirements and these naturally come in various budgets as well. For example, the 30 GB plan is around $300/month, which is quite expensive for a family who needs more data than the typical option. An increment of $100 for every 10 GB additional is implemented on the plan prices.
AT&T also sets limits as to the number of users who can share in a particular plan. Aside from the additional fee to be paid for each smartphone that will join in an account, only a total of 10 devices will only be allowed to be associated with the account. Businesses are allowed more number of devices, so it is a more attractive option if you are a company. Naturally, usage in excess of the plan allotted will be charged $15/GB. Another option is a data-only plan for a monthly fee of $335 that will allow you to use up to 50 GB data. No unlimited plan exists as of moment.
Google makes it's Search mobile app better by adding a tip calculator to its laundry list of features.
The tip calculator can be initiated by either a voice command or typing for example "What's the tip for X dollars" and a special interface will pop up prompting you to fill in the facts of the order. To ensure that Google to come back you the exact tip amount, you'll have to input the total bill, adjust the end percentage and split the check among the people you're by helping cover their.
This will output two numbers - the first one is the tip each person has to give, and also the other will be the bill (plus tip) divided through the number of people.
This tool definitely comes handy when you are out of your friends and trying to bring up a 3rd party app to calculate tips while you can use the search app much easiler from your finger tips.
