World’s smallest HSPA+ platform for Android voice and data unveiled

I really don’t want my smartphone to be smaller. I like the screen to be big enough for comfortable use and reading. I would go for a thinner smartphone though and one that has better battery life. These things can all be granted when the hardware inside the phone gets smaller and more efficient.
Icera has announced a new platform for Android devices that might just facilitate some of these thinner devices that I would like to see. Icera calls the new platform Espresso 450 and it is claimed to be the world’s smallest HSPA+ voice and data platform for Android devices.
The tiny platform measures 700mm2 and is scalable to include 2G, 3G, and 4G tech inside. The official debut will be made at MWC next month for the Espresso 450 platform Icera expects products using the platform to land in late 2011.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device.
