It is the free time again from AT&T. Before the holiday season, the company offers a big discount for all tablets. It is $100 discount but with 2-year data plan contract. This offer also includes iPad. If you want to grab this offer, AT&T starts on November 9th. It should be best for those who didn’t own a tablet yet.
Usually we see this offer for smartphone subscribers only but this time it goes to tablets. It should turn the new way of people who prefer to use the bigger screen devices especially for businessperson.
Come on guy, now we have official information from Apple regarding to iPad Mini which is the newest device of the company to fill the market before holiday season. The new iPad Mini has a smaller screen than the long-seen iPad of 7.9-inch. It is absolutely the killer of other tablet with similar screen thank to the price tag and specifications. As what we have seen with the Google Nexus 7 with 7-inch display as well as other Galaxy Tab 7 Plus.
Recently Best Buy allows pre-order for Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X for $149.99 and $99.99 respectively. Both come with two-year contract with free shipping offer and AT&T will be the carrier. Basically for Lumia 920, you can choose different colors of red, blue, yellow, black and white.
These two are the first Windows Phone 8 to hit the market before the end of 2012 but Best Buy didn’t state the exact shipping date. Hopefully it doesn’t be too long to wait.

Back to the previous story when iPhone 5 went on pre-order page at 12:01AM PST on Friday, I am pretty sure that you might already made your pre-order if you want this device since no one want to sit on the long row queuing for your turn. But now Verizon has confirmed that iPhone 5 can use data to browse internet while taking and Sprint has so has this problem since Apple offers Verizon and Sprint with the same iPhone model. Note that it only happens with LTE network.
But it turns the question to what AT&T has done with their iPhone that allows user to use data while talking. In fact, AT&T uses GSM instead of CDMA.

AT&T has a great welcome for the new iPhone 5 which was announced by Apple recently. With press release, it is officially announced that customers can enjoy unlimited data plan for the LTE iPhone 5 even they upgrade with subsidized price.
This is the special deal by the company if you compare with other. Verizon allows customers to get the unlimited data plan but they have to purchase iPhone 5 in full price not subsidize.
This is the word of AT&T Mobility president and CEO Ralph de la Vega:
“We offer customers the flexibility to keep the iPhone data plans they already have or choose any of our individual or new Mobile Share plans. We’re proud that more customers choose AT&T for iPhone than any other U.S. carrier and look forward to making iPhone 5 the newest addition to our lineup.”
It is just a matter of time for Samsung to push the Galaxy Note 2 to U.S. market but now seem like it is almost the right time. According the screenshots, this large display smartphone is already in testing stage of AT&T. We should be able to see this handset on Verizon as well. The variant is powered by the quad-core Exynos processor just as expected. There is not specific release date but it is in Coming Soon label.

With the criticism by Public Knowledge group, the FaceTime may violate FCC rule. In respond to this manner, the carrier, AT&T, has written to the group regarding to the company stand over this matter. Of course FaceTime is a pre-installed app which can be disable by the carrier itself. However the carrier can’t pre-instal app but the users can download other similar app to enjoy video call from the Google Play. You can read the statement from AT&T below:
The FCC’s net neutrality rules do not regulate the availability to customers of applications that are preloaded on phones. Indeed, the rules do not require that providers make available any preloaded apps. Rather, they address whether customers are able to download apps that compete with our voice or video telephony services. AT&T does not restrict customers from downloading any such lawful applications, and there are several video chat apps available in the various app stores serving particular operating systems. (I won’t name any of them for fear that I will be accused by these same groups of discriminating in favor of those apps. But just go to your app store on your device and type “video chat.”) Therefore, there is no net neutrality violation.
