Xtex's My Tablet gets you 7-inches of tasty ICS for just 150 bones

Tablets are are great and all, but they sure can be expensive — especially if you want one running a newer version of Android. Step in Xtex’s $150 My Tablet, a 7-inch device loaded with Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3, a 16GB HDD (expandable to 48 GB via its TF card slot) and a 1.5Ghz CPU complimented by 1GB of RAM. That’s not all, though, as the device also packs a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, an HDMI output and mini and standard USB ports. That low price does mean you’ll be making due with a screen resolution of 800 x 480 and only WiFi connectivity, but you’ll get to choose from its very neapolitan-esque black, white and pink colorways. Considering the My Tablet is nearly half the price of an Andy Pad Pro, it sure does looks appetizing on paper — as long as you keep your expectations reasonable, that is. Satisfy your sweet tooth with more images in the gallery below and the press release after the break.

Verizon to offer free mobile hotspot on new iPad, AT&T is looking into it

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

Along with 4G LTE support, Apple’s new iPad will include a new personal hotspot feature that will vary from carrier to carrier. AT&T and Verizon Wireless are the exclusive carriers of the iPad in the U.S. and both carriers offer a mobile hotspot feature on their smartphones, however it was unknown if the feature would be offered on the new iPad as well. Verizon Wireless on Thursday  supplied GottaBeMobile with confirmation that the feature will be included — for no additional charge — with each data plan. “The tablet data plans include the mobile hotspot just as they do today,” a Verizon spokeswoman said. “Data plans begin at 2GB for $30 and go to 10 GB for $80 and includes the mobile hot spot. The iPads have one additional option of 1GB for $20.” AT&T will not offer the feature at launch, but may enable it in the future. “We are working with Apple to enable this feature in the future, but we currently do not offer it,” an AT&T spokesman told 9To5Mac.

T-Mobile to throttle speeds of heavy data users

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

Recently, T-Mobile released a statement detailing how it would handle customers who utilize more than 5 GB of data per month on their mobile devices. The statement reads:

Beginning on October 16, T-Mobile will begin to reduce data speeds when a customer reaches 5GB of usage in a billing cycle, in accordance with T-Mobile terms and conditions. This change should only affect extreme data users (less than 1 percent) and is being made to ensure that all subscribers receive the best Web performance available by limiting the number of extreme data users on our network.

The majority of T-Mobile customers should not be affected by this change. The new 5 GB threshold limit, which is equivalent to approximately 125,000 yahoo.com page visits, is enough bandwidth to satisfy most customers’ Web and data needs.
If a customer happens to reach the 5GB limit, they will receive a free text message informing them their data speed will be reduced. Customers will continue to have Web browsing capabilities but at slower speeds, which will be determined by their device type. Once their new billing cycle begins, data speeds will no longer be restricted.

Customers can track their data usage through My T-Mobile, MyAccount, or the SIVR.

Any T-Mobile users out there eclipse 5 GB of data per month on a regular basis?

BlackBerry Storm 3 image leaks?

Monday, September 20th, 2010

BerryReview has been sent in an image of what their tipster is claiming to be the BlackBerry Storm 3. The device is reported to have a 3.7-inch display and 8 GB of internal memory; no processor, touchscreen, or other specifications were given. If the image is in fact real, we’re unclear as to why RIM would put an optical trackpad on a full-touchscreen device… your guess is as good as ours. Take a look at the above image and let us know what you think.
