Verizon Planning Shift To Voice Over LTE And CDMA-Less Devices

Smartphones are pretty expensive these days, and Verizon is looking to make the subsidies on its network cheaper. How is it going to do that? By cutting CDMA out completely.

Verizon Readying Updates For HTC Rezound And DROID Incredible 2

It looks like Verizon is once again updating aging phones, except this isn’t like the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Thunderbolt. This is no large update, no change in Android version. The Rezound update is only 6.9MB and contains what they say is “HTC device enhancement.” We have no clue what that could mean, but we’ll see. An update of that size… Read more
