Apparently the device is making the rounds at Sprint’s research and development department. Sources also say that talk of a 4G variant of the iPhone for Sprint is coming along, but the first generation Sprint iPhone that is currently in testing does not feature support for 4G bands.
It’s good to know what’s going on in your credit card account. It’s even better to know what’s happening in real-time. That’s why Visa is testing a real-time notification system for mobile phones. Users are able to choose the alert level (whether for all or only the expensive items) and even choose if they prefer SMS or Email alerts.
Currently VISA employees are testing the system to work out all the kinks. things out. Since we are dealing with VISA, we are guessing that the service won’t be free once it goes public, but that remains to be seen.
Comcast giving something away for free? They’re thinking about it, performing Wi-Fi hot spot trials near NJ Transit rail stations to grant subscribers access to the Internet on their mobile devices. This, according to a DSLReports post. The service in the Wi-Fi Hot Zones requires that subscribers sign in using their Comcast.net usernames and passwords.
Comcast confirmed the trials, and says it is gauging user interest. They may offer it as an added-value service to high-speed Internet customers. No word on when or if Comcast will launch the hot-spot service, but the trial is reportedly running until December. Judging by the length of the trial, some think Comcast is gearing up for a much larger hot-spot service.
The rumor reads like a scene from the gaming X-Files. Supposedly, a small group of PS3 owners were taken to a secret location in California where they got their chance to test a new Sony item. Not something made from alien technology, but a PS3 remote that mimics the Nintendo Wiimote.
Participants apparently enjoyed minigames like tennis, fencing and paintball. One source says one of the gamers spotted a “PS3 Fit” and was immediately mind wiped and carted away. Ok, I made that last bit up, but the rest is true. We think. The players also got to see some Quake on a laptop while using the device. Apparently, Sony has a long way to go before all the bugs are worked out
