In terms of external hardware, there isn’t a whole lot a tablet needs to be a success. The iPad restarted the whole tablet market and brought along for the ride only a headphone jack, microphone, volume rocker and connector port. That sparse packaging—still pretty much the formula for all tablets—has led to a svelte form factor standard almost across the board.
If you haven't heard, digital security is a big deal, and the security of information on mobile devices is of utmost concern. The bad guys are getting smarter, their attacks more complex and the sensitive data they’re after increasingly resides on that miniature computer you have in your pocket.
Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg made quite a splash in late August when he announced the launch of a remarkably ambitious project, called Internet.org, aimed at bringing high-speed Internet access to the two thirds of the world’s population that are not yet connected.
A mature economy and growing economy has emerged from out of the now burgeoning app stores. But like any musical artist will tell you, the competition out there is brutal and regardless of how good you are, it’s sometimes hard to be seen. App developers find themselves in the same situation...
As the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), Congress, the Department of Defense (DoD), and other agencies move to meet the mandate to free up more spectrum for commercial broadband services...
Brands are finally shifting real dollars to mobile.

According to the FCC, fully 25 percent of the cell sites in the affected area were out of operation because of the super storm that hit the East Coast.

Tablets are yet again set to be big items this holiday season, and shoppers will have the best selection they’ve ever seen. But this year, those cellular equipped models won’t be shipping in just 3G; LTE is the flavor of choice for those seeking anytime, anywhere connectivity
Today’s public safety wireless networks reflect much of what is wrong with historic airwave allocations. Different user groups are served in fragmentation by numerous incompatible systems. This feudal system using relatively old technologies makes for inefficient use of prime spectrum resources. It is all overdue for a major overhaul.
For better or worse, a natural disaster has once again demonstrated just how vulnerable today’s wireless networks are to the effects of natural and man-made disasters, particularly widespread and long-lasting power outages. One way or another—social pressure, government regulation, or simple competition—operators may be forced to deal with the problem.
