True, CDMA isn't dead yet, but it's dying and will most likely be put out to pasture the year 2020, which isn't that far off. With Sprint carrying it later this summer, and their already being a GSM unlocked version, anyone looking to get a KEYone that's on any of the four U.S. major carriers will be covered. posted on 13 Jun 2017, 13:03 0 2. oakparkplastics (Posts: 17; Member since: 04 Jun 2012) What kind of bizarre product launch is this?

If you've been a longtime reader, you may have noticed that I am a stickler for language specificity. I’ve talked before about how eventually the word “ smartphone ” should probably be phased out, because at some point all phones will be “smart”, making the distinction unnecessary. I’ve talked about the metonymy of Apple’s mobile brand names , and how the fact that people idly using the words “iPhone” or ‘iPad” to stand in for “smartphone” or “tablet” isn’t really that big a deal. And, multiple times , I have argued that the word “fragmentation” is wholly inaccurate: it exaggerates the issues of the Android ecosystem, hides the real offenders, and impedes progress towards potential solutions. This time of year has brought up my bile, because it highlights one of the most most annoying examples of muddled language that you will find in the the tech world. I am speaking of the … [Read more...] about Dear tech blogs, Can we agree on the meaning of “launch”?

But, we have to give credit where it is due, because Deloitte has released its TMT (technology, media, & telecommunications) Predictions for 2013, and these are some of the most well thought out predictions we've seen in a while. The Deloitte analysts do predict some relatively easy stuff, like that there will be 1 billion smartphone shipments in 2013, but they also go into amazing depth on a number of topics, and have a very interesting explanation on why the PC isn't dead yet...

IAMBLCKJ3ZUS (Posts: 371; Member since: 29 Sep 2015) Interesting enough I bought the HTC 10 because of all the great reviews and It just doesn't hold up. Audio, Camera, Display all are S7 and G5. The only thing I felt better about was if I dropped it.
