ATT Logo 500x288 AT&T Betting on Mobile Content and Over the Top Video Services AT&T is pushing forward into the mobile services future investing in Over-The-Top (OTT) video services with a company called the Chernin Group.  This will allow them to create video content for their customers and offer one more service. What kind of video? That's not sure, but we can bet that considering AT&T has deals with companies to offset the data that their members consume, their OTT video service will let users watch more video without eating up all their data. Check out the full press release with more information below:


THE CHERNIN GROUP AND AT&T CREATE NEW VENTURE TO ACQUIRE, INVEST IN AND LAUNCH ONLINE VIDEO BUSINESSES

 

DALLAS and LOS ANGELES, April 22, 2014AT&T* and The Chernin Group, which manages and invests in media businesses around the world, today announced the formation of a venture to acquire, invest in and launch over-the-top (OTT) video services. The Chernin Group and AT&T have committed over $500 million in funding to the venture. Further financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.

This alliance positions AT&T and The Chernin Group to take advantage of the rapid growth of online video and OTT video services, with each party bringing significant and complementary strengths. The strategic goal of this initiative will be to invest in advertising and subscription VOD channels as well as streaming services. 

”AT&T and The Chernin Group are combining our skill sets to address the growing consumer demand for accessing content how and when they want it,” said John Stankey, Chief Strategy Officer at AT&T. “Combining our expertise in network infrastructure, mobile, broadband and video with The Chernin Group’s management and expertise in content, distribution, and monetization models in online video creates the opportunity for us to develop a compelling offering in the OTT space.”

The Chernin Group brings assets as well as expertise to the venture, including contribution of its majority stake in Crunchyroll, a leading subscription video on demand service.  

“A critical part of The Chernin Group’s strategy has been our significant focus on the online video industry, and joining forces with AT&T only further underscores our strategic commitment in this area as operators, investors and programmers,” said Peter Chernin, Chairman and CEO, The Chernin Group. “Consumers are increasingly viewing video content on their phones, tablets, computers, game consoles and connected TVs on mobile and broadband networks. AT&T's massive reach on those platforms across mobile and broadband and their commitment to the online video space make them the perfect fit for this venture with us."

AT&T’s network resources bring enhanced opportunities for this new content alliance to create compelling offerings for consumers. AT&T has invested more than $119 billion in the United States over the last six years in part to stay ahead of the exploding consumer demand for wireless and wireline broadband data consumption, with more than 50% of global Internet traffic driven by video.

powerful iPhone Powerful ad takes a subtle shot at Samsung and shows Apples advantage is in apps

Apple's advertisements tend to focus on what a phone does and how it affects someone's life rather than the raw specs. The latest advertisement that began airing this week highlights that by showcasing several apps available in the iOS App Store and how they can make users do things they probably didn't imagine.

There's even a veiled shot at Samsung at the 1:05 mark. While Samsung has been promoting the ability of the Galaxy S5 to take someone's pulse with the built-in sensor on the back, Apple shows how an app already uses the rear flash to do that. At the end, you can see there are plenty of use cases for iPhones without having to argue about screen size and cores. Is it a good strategy? Take a look and decide for yourself.

oneplus one 356x375 OnePlus One and Cyanogen take on every Android flagship at half the price

What would it take for you to give up your beloved Samsung, HTC, LG, or Google smartphone? What if a company you've probably never heard of promised to deliver the same things those other phones offer, loaded CyanogenMod onto it, and upgraded the design materials to create a phone capable of competing with those devices. If that interests you, pay attention to the OnePlus One, a new smartphone that costs half as much as the flagships of other companies.

The OnePlus One is missing a couple of next generation things like Quick Charge and USB 3.0, as well as the trusty old micro SD, but it otherwise has everything else you might need. The phone runs a customized version of CyanogenMod called CM11S that's based on Android 4.4 and has always-on wake commands and voice search, themes, and deep privacy settings.

The One costs $299 (269 euros) for a 16GB model and $349 (299 euros) for the 64GB model. You'll have to jump through hoops to find a way to purchase one, sadly. Take a look at the specs below and see if it's worth it.

lg g3 settings macro1 500x333 LG G3 user interface leaks show LG is following the flat icon trend

The LG G3 is apparently in the hands of some people very eager to share details about the changes that LG is introducing into the next version of its flagship Android smartphone. We've already seen leaked screenshots confirming that the G3 will have a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution and hints of the interface embracing a flat look. A new set of images add more strength to those claims.

Take a look at some of the images below from DigitalTrends. They show more of the home screen previously spotted with flat icons that remove the old style of layered, cartoonish graphics. LG is following the lead of Samsung, Apple, and Microsoft by making it's icons flat, but they still have some depth to them. It's more pleasing to look at compared to the old design.

LG is expected to launch the G3 in a few months, so it's clearly time for more of these leaks to start appearing online. Let's hope LG delivers when the device finally goes on sale and it's more than just a new coat of paint for the icons.

amazon phone 500x265 Amazon phone will use tilting gestures to navigate phone

Gestures will be a major part of the Amazon smartphone set to be released this spring. No, not something as simple as flicking a wrist to launch an app like the Moto X does. The Amazon phone debuting soon will have the unique ability to incorporate gestures within apps and reveal information without having to tap within the app.

BGR, the website the first leaked the photos of Amazon's upcoming device, has returned to its source and learned that the phone will use tilt gestures to shown additional content in some apps. So if someone searches for a restaurant within the maps application, tilting the phone in one direction will reveal Yelp ratings along the map. A similar tilt could reveal IMDb ratings when browsing for movies, open photos to share within a message app, or an extended weather forecast. These are all things you could easily access with a tap, but the aim is to make them suitable to use with one hand.

While I have to admit this is a very gimmicky thing to introduce, it could be really helpful for people who need to operate big phones with one hand. Amazon's phone will probably follow the trend of having a big screen, so if this is a way to provide an optional method for making life easier, I'm all for it.

130328130603 microsoft mobile phone 620xa 500x295 Goodbye Nokia, Hello Microsoft Mobile

Eight months ago, Microsoft announced it was buying the once mobile giant Nokia and has been clearing regulatory hurdles ever since. Now it seems that Microsoft's $7.2 billion buyout will finally come to fruition. Microsoft has announced that by this Friday, the 25th of April, the transaction will be complete and will become know as Microsoft Mobile.


According to Brad Smith, General Counsel & Executive Vice President, Legal & Corporate Affairs, at Microsoft.

Today we are excited to share that we have completed the steps necessary to finalize Microsoft’s acquisition of the Nokia Devices and Services business. The transaction will be completed this Friday, April 25, when we’ll officially welcome the Nokia Devices and Services business as part of the Microsoft family.
The completion of this acquisition follows several months of planning and will mark a key step on the journey towards integration. This acquisition will help Microsoft accelerate innovation and market adoption for Windows Phones. In addition, we look forward to introducing the next billion customers to Microsoft services via Nokia mobile phones.

Up until this point it was unclear if Microsoft was still going to use the Nokia name on their new devices to harness the worldwide name recognition. In the end, Microsoft opted not to, which may be a mistake. We'll seen soon enough.

sense 6 HTC details Sense 6.0 update status for HTC One

The HTC One update page in recent months have provided us an exhaustive look at the way that HTC gets new firmware to its existing phones and showing the status of Android 4.4 KitKat to its phones promised to be updated. That includes the HTC One, One mini, and One Max, which have all been updated on most carriers. Now that same update page is pointing out when you'll be able to see the great new features of Sense 6.0.

As seen on the recently released HTC One M8, Sense UI 6.0 includes some important refinements to the appearance and capabilities of HTC's software. It also includes a spin-out of marquee apps like Blinkfeed and Zoe into Google Play, which will make it easier for updates in the future. HTC must first deliver Sense 6.0 to smartphones before it can make that happen, so the company has provided details on that process.

With the exception of the T-Mobile HTC One (2013 edition), all phones are in the Integration stage, the second step in a 4-step process. Integration means HTC is changing the code of Android 4.4 and Sense to support the new version. Once that is complete, it will be sent to carriers for testing and certification before it is delivered to users. We're still several weeks, if not months, from seeing Sense 6 deployed, but you can check back at later times to see how far along the process has reached.

blackberry classic 500x291 BlackBerry Classic (Q20) launches in November, says CEO

BlackBerry loyalists will have a long wait until the next time they are able to upgrade to a new smartphone. CEO John Chen revealed in an interview with Maria Bartiromo of USA Today that a new BlackBerry smartphone with a portrait QWERTY keyboard will go on sale in November. That's a mighty long wait for a phone that's supposed to resurrect BlackBerry.

Chen has previously spoken about BlackBerry following its core strength and releasing a smartphone with a physical keyboard. The company announced the BlackBerry Q20 at Mobile World Congress in February but didn't reveal any details about its release plans. This now confirms the phone will be released nine months after it was first announced.

The BlackBerry Q20 will be called the BlackBerry Classic when it is released in November. The Classic will have a portrait QWERTY keyboard with Menu, Back, Send, and End buttons, as well as a trackpad. A 3.5-inch display and large battery are other features of the device.

01 500x320 Noreve iPad Air Tradition leather case review

Noreve manufactures premium handmade leather cases for smartphones, tablets, laptops and other devices. Their products are made to very high standards and the iPad Air Tradition leather case is no exception.

 

02 410x375 Noreve iPad Air Tradition leather case review

Noreve supplies this case in a wide variety of colors, textures and finishes. Our sample came in the “Ambition” black finish, which in our opinion looks really nice, both stylish and classy.

The leather case comes in a beautiful red-and-black gift box, which also includes a nice red draw-string carrying bag as an offer.

 03 500x325 Noreve iPad Air Tradition leather case review

Examining the case, you can see that it is superbly built, with a high-end luxury look and lots of fine finishing details. The leather itself is very soft and pleasant to the touch. This case is padded and reinforced, to keep your iPad Air safe in case of accidental impacts.

 04 500x277 Noreve iPad Air Tradition leather case review

The case comes with inserts for business or credit cards in the front cover and also a large insert for holding documents or other papers. The case is kept firmly closed with a leather flap that comes with a kind of magnetic lock commonly seen on some leather purses.

 05 500x375 Noreve iPad Air Tradition leather case review

Fitting the iPad Air inside the case is easy and the frame holds the iPad very firmly. Getting the iPad out of the case is not as easy, requiring a little bit of force, but that’s actually reassuring, as it means that the grip is tight and secure.

 The case gives good access to all iPad’s buttons and functions, including openings in the back for the camera and microphone. All cutouts are well aligned, but if you want to be nit-picking, the camera and microphone holes in the back are very slightly off-centered. This doesn’t impact functionality at all, as they both have complete clearance, so it’s only a very slight aesthetical detail, which isn’t even that obvious when not looking for it.

 06 500x375 Noreve iPad Air Tradition leather case review

On the back of the case, there’s a folding leather stand to hold the iPad in the landscape position. To close the stand, there’s a button that keeps it firmly in place. When closed, the stand fits in an insert, so that the back cover is kept flat.

 07 500x325 Noreve iPad Air Tradition leather case review

You can also hold the iPad in portrait mode, by keeping the case upright and not fully opened, but it’s not very practical or secure to use it like this, so it’s better to just stick with landscape mode, using the built-in stand. Also featured is a magnetic cover that awakes and puts the iPad in standby upon opening and closing, respectively.

 We’ve used this case intensively and without any special care, for some time now and it still looks and feels like new. The leather and finishing looks to be very durable and is easy to keep it clean and looking good.

On the “not-so-good” side, the price of having such a sturdy case is that it is a bit weighty, which makes your iPad not-so “Air-light”. But that’s a small price to pay for such protection, really.

 Also worth mentioning, the leather flap that is used to keep the case closed has a metal lock with a small round “pin”. We think this can be a bit dangerous, as one can accidentally press it against the iPad’s screen and eventually scratch it. To avoid this when using the iPad, we always lock the flap on the backside of the cover, as pictured below:

Also, it’s probably better to have some kind of screen protector, just in case.

However, this issue could have been avoided by just using a magnetic lock, with the metal or magnet inside the leather flap, without any metal parts exposed. Alternatively, the lock mechanism could have been reversed, locking in the back of the case, so to keep the flap and metal lock away from the screen.

Looking at Noreve’s website, we can see they already implemented the lock without the exposed metal part on the iPad Mini case:

This feels to be a safer option, so maybe Noreve will also implement this in the future for the iPad Air’s case. All in all, this is far from a deal-breaker and it’s only a matter of being careful.

 The Noreve iPad Air Tradition leather case can be bought directly on the Noreve Site for a starting price of €70.75 which can vary in accordance to the finishing that you choose.

In summary:

The good:

  • Durable, premium quality leather and finish
  • Elegant, slim and sophisticated look

  • Comfortable texture and grip

  • Very practical leather stand (for landscape use), with lock button to keep it closed when not in use

  • Can hold iPad in portrait position (not as usable as with landscape stand)

  • Good fit

  • Good access to all buttons and connections

  • Good clearance of camera, microphone and speakers

  • iPad is held very tight and secure to the case’s frame

 

  • Padded and reinforced case protects against impact

  • Standby/awake iPad upon closing/opening

  • Leather flap with magnetic lock keeps the case firmly closed

  • Inserts for business or credit cards and a flap for securing documents inside the cover are nice business-class additions

The not-so-good:

  • Reinforced case means it’s a bit heavy

  • Camera and back microphone holes very slightly off-centered (purely aesthetical, but could be better, for the price)

  • Leather flap has a metal lock that requires some care to avoid scratching the iPad’s screen if one is not careful enough – Noreve’s iPad Mini equivalent case has already solved this issue

10 500x323 Noreve iPad Air Tradition leather case review

In conclusion, there are already many alternative leather cases out there for your iPad Air, but if you’re looking for a premium quality product, with that extra “touch of class”, luxury finish and refinement, you should definitely consider the Noreve iPad Air Tradition leather case.

nexus 5 logo 500x266 Rumor: $100 Nexus Phone Coming

Google has been putting out some great Nexus devices for hundreds less than they should have been based on the specs, screen size, and other hardware. However, those phones and tablets are are still more expensive than some Chinese offerings and the low end offerings from Nokia and other manufacturers in other parts of the world. Rumor has it that price difference is will be changing in the near future.


The rumor states that Google will be offering a mid range device for around $100. This wouldn't be a higher-end device like the previous Nexus offerings, so it would be more of a midrange device. Google would keep costs down by using "cheaper" components, the center of this being a MediaTek SoC chipset. The hardware partner is unknown, but using a Mediatek processor, common among low-cost phones, would drive the price down.

No matter who Google gets to make this device, if this rumor is true it would sell like crazy and give Google yet another place to grow in the mobile phone arena.

lg g2 phones LG G2 updates to Android 4.4 KitKat on Verizon

The LG G2 Android 4.4 KitKat update has arrived for customers on Verizon Wireless. Verizon - like AT&t, which launched the KitKat update yesterday - took a little longer than most users would have preferred, but the important thing is that it's available now. Users can access the latest version of Android by charging the phone to 75 percent and going to Settings > About phone to check for an update. It's rolling out in stages now and might not be available right away, but once you gain access, here's what's new

  • Android 4.4.2 software so there should be improvements in battery life and power management
  • Performance boost shaves milliseconds off everything, so apps launch faster, images load quicker, and son on
  • Accessibility improvements for color adjustments, captions on video, and relabeled settings
  • Notification bar now has white labels
  • Location is more accurate
  • NFC Host Card Emulation makes it possible to setup payments without needing to access secure Element

Dual Flash 500x245 HTC wants to own the selfie, so it needs to put a front facing flash on the next phone

The HTC One M8 has a fantastic front-facing camera. It produces 5-megapixel images, nearly twice as large as other models, and takes HDR photos. It does nearly everything that someone might want in a front camera except have a flash. HTC says that it wants "own the selfie market," and if that's the case, the most sensible way to make that happen is to put a flash on the front of the smartphone.

In an interview with Vodafone, HTC camera expert Symon Whitehorn says HTC wants to make its front camera the best in the business, which explains the peculiar way that the M8 front camera is 5-megapixels while the main back camera is only 4-megapixels. It's not so peculiar when you realize that, as Whitehorn says, 90 percent of photos taken in some countries are solo or group photos taken by a person in the photo. The popularity of self-taken photos is why HTC will invest even more into the "Selfie" cam it introduced in the One M8. The best way to make that investment pay off in the next flagship HTC device is to make those great cameras look better in the dark.

htc one selfie 500x281 HTC wants to own the selfie, so it needs to put a front facing flash on the next phone

When I reviewed the HTC One M8, I loved the two-tone flash on the back of the device and the advantages of having a wide angle lens with the front camera. Sadly, I never got to merge those two experiences. The front camera did well when I took photos with friends, but only when we were in well-lit areas. It was a letdown to use the selfie cam in a nightclub only to look at the photos later and realize that because it was so dark, you couldn't really see much. It would have been a killer feature if I had the option to take that same photo with a front-facing flash.

It's not unheard of to put a flash on the front of a smartphone. Lumigon put an LED flash on the front of its T2 HD smartphone, and Manfrotto sells an iPhone case with a large LED light that can be used for selfies. These products show that there's clearly a desire to take better photos with the front camera rather than always relying on the rear camera and its flash. If HTC truly wants to standout ahead of competitors, figuring out a way to better illuminate photos on both sides of the camera is the best way to ensure its lead in this area.

honor box 500x269 The Beast Comes Home:  Huawei Honor X1 First Impressions

At Mobile World Congress, Huawei announced a few new devices but none grabbed my attention more than the 7-inch -- that's right, I said 7-inch -- Honor X1 smartphone. While I still don't know if it's a large phone or simply a tablet that makes phone call,s I do know that it's now mine. (Thanks eBay!)  I have used it as my daily driver for a few days, not long enough for a full review, but long enough to have few thoughts...

First this device is very large for a phone, largest screen phone on the market, but small for tablet. It's an odd thing to try to compare sizes for since there has never been anything like it before on the market...So I will just show you the specs you can compare to other devices. 

  • - 1.6 GHz Quad Core Processor
  • - 2GB RAM
  • - 7 Inch FHD Touchscreen Display
  • - 13 MP Rear Camera
  • - 5 MP Front Camera
  • - SIM Support
  • - WiFi 802.11b/G/N
  • - GPS
  • - 5000 MAh Battery
  • -239 grams
  • -Android 4.2

Avoiding the "wow this phone is huge" comment, the first thing you notice about the Honor X1 is the aluminum back and edges with just a hint of plastic on the top and bottom. Think HTC One combined with a Samsung Galaxy 7 inch tab with very thin bezels. This device feels sturdy in the hand while staying as light and thin as it can for being such a beast of a device. If you compare it to it's tablet brethren it's actually a small device.

honor back The Beast Comes Home:  Huawei Honor X1 First Impressions

So far the quad core processor and 2GB of RAM have been more than enough to make this device snappy without any lag, it runs the custom Huawei Emotion UI without a glitch. The UI itself will take a little getting use to for most Android users.

While the Emotion UI is simple enough to use the fact that there is no "app drawer" is annoying to put it mildly. This means that EVERY APP on your device needs to go onto your home screen somewhere. I sidestepped this by foldering up this apps on my second home screen and simply called it app drawer.  Other than that one annoyance, the UI is great, the widgets are useful and the interface is about as clean as an Android UI can get.

One of my least favorite things about Android in general is the constant push notifications from every app you installed on the device.  Now I know you can go into settings than click on each app individually and turn this off but that's a huge pain and I dread doing it. That doesn't have to be done with this device the first time any app sends you a push notification the device will ask you if you would like to allow that app to send you push notifications and you can stop it than and there if you want. While it's not a feature that would make me buy a device just for it it's a nice touch by Huawei.

The other huge thing about this device is the battery at 5000mah it's kind of a game changer. I have had this device four days now...I have only charged it once and I am still sitting at 70 percent. This is with heavy usage, including set up, downloading of apps and the constant show off of the device to everyone with the "is that a phone" question.

I will be using this device as my daily driver for a little bit longer before I will give my full review. If you have any questions about it or if there is something you would like covered leave it in comments and I will do my best to include it in the full review.
