Google & Sprint Announce Nexus S 4G, Google Voice Integration

 
Google has launched a 4G variant of its Nexus S smartphone on Sprint’s network, the company announced Monday in a blog post.
The Nexus S features a 4-inch touchscreen display, 1 GHz Hummingbird CPU, 16 GB of storage memory, two cameras and near-field communication capabilities. Of course, its most interesting feature is its WiMAX chip, which enables fast data transfer on the move (theoretically, up to 40 Mbit/s).
The device will be available this spring online and in Sprint retail stores, as well as Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores in the U.S. for $199.99.
Google also announced it has partnered with Sprint to enable seamless integration of Google Voice with users’ mobile phones. That means customers will be able to use their existing Sprint number as their Google Voice number, as well as replace their Sprint number with their Google Voice number when calling or texting from their Sprint phone.
Furthermore, international calls made from Google Voice-enabled Sprint phones will be connected at Google Voice’s low rates. Google Voice will also replace Sprint voicemail, which means users will be able to get transcribed voicemail messages online, via email and text message.
For an overview of the service, which is coming “soon,” check out the video below.

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.
