Verizon to pair iPhone with unlimited data plan – RealtyGo.co

Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ) plans to sell a CDMA-capable iPhone from Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) with unlimited data service, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal, helping Verizon distinguish the smartphone from AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T), which stands to lose its exclusive grip on the device.

Verizon to offer the iPhone with unlimited data plans...

The report, which cited an unnamed source familiar with Verizon’s plans, said the carrier will begin selling the iPhone around the end of the month. The Journal, along with other media outlets including Bloomberg and Reuters, reported that Verizon will unveil the iPhone at a media event in New York City Tuesday. Verizon sent out invitations to event, which starts at 11 a.m. EST and will be headlined by Lowell McAdam, president and chief operating officer of Verizon Communications and the former head of Verizon Wireless. The invitation asks recipients to “join us as we share the latest news,” but provided no details. FierceWireless will be onsite Tuesday covering the event.

AT&T has been the exclusive provider for the iPhone since 2007 and last year introduced tiered, usage-based data plans. Verizon has long offer an unlimited data plan for smartphones at $30 per month, but late last year added an option of 150 MB per month for $15.

Verizon has been insisting for months that its network is capable of handling increased traffic from an iPhone. The company’s network has been tested by an influx of millions of subscribers using devices that run on Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android platform. AT&T has admitted it was unprepared for the deluge of traffic the iPhone caused, but has since spent billions upgrading its network to support faster data speeds and increased traffic.

While the announcement by Verizon is not yet official, analysts are already trying to predict how the competitive landscape will be altered if Verizon does launch the iPhone. Sales estimates by many analysts vary, but a consensus has emerged that Verizon might sell 9 million to 12 million iPhones in 2011. Others, however, are more cautious.

“PRTM believes that analyst predictions of as many as 13 million Verizon iPhone sales in 2011 are unlikely to be fulfilled,” PRTM analyst Dan Hays said. “More likely, we will see 2011 Verizon iPhone sales in the range of 5-7 million, slowed by the high cost of subscribers breaking existing contracts, limitations of Verizon’s CDMA technology for multi-tasking and global roaming, and an attractive portfolio of competing 3G and 4G devices in Verizon’s arsenal.”

The iPhone’s arrival from Verizon could also help blunt the growth of Android and stall BlackBerry maker Research In Motion (NASDAQ:RIMM). According separate reports from research firms Canalys and the NPD Group, Android captured around 44 percent of the U.S. smartphone market in the third quarter, besting both Apple and RIM.

AT&T accelerates LTE deployment, will launch 20 4G devices this year – RealtyGo

LTE……..AT&T and LTE

AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T) will accelerate the deployment of its LTE network, launching LTE markets by mid-year with the entire deployment competed by 2013. In addition, the company will debut 20 4G devices this year. Those devices will use a variety of operating systems including Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android, Microsoft’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows Phone 7 and Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS, implying that a 4G version of the iPhone is in the works.

AT&T described both HSPA+ and LTE network technologies and said it will be releasing devices that run on both technologies. Recently T-Mobile USA has blurred the lines calling its HSPA+ network and devices “4G.” When T-Mobile did so this past spring, AT&T said that calling HSPA+ “4G” was misleading.

Speaking at the company’s AT&T developer event held here today, AT&T Mobility CEO and President Ralph de la Vega said that recent tax incentives have made it possible to accelerate the company’s LTE deployment as well as expand its backhaul capabilities. Specifically, de la Vega said that the company is equipping its backhaul network with Ethernet and fiber, which will provide network speeds of up to 6 Mbps–what AT&T calls “4G speeds.” He expects that two-thirds of the company’s network traffic will be on the expanded backhaul by year-end.

In October, AT&T Operations CEO John Stankey said at an investor conference that the company would launch commercial LTE service by mid-2011, and will cover between 70 million and 75 million POPs by year-end.

De la Vega also said that AT&T plans to introduce 20 4G devices this year, with HSPA+ devices coming in the first half of the year and LTE devices in the second half of the year. Those LTE devices will include smartphones, USB modems and hot spots and will use a variety of platforms including Android, Windows Phone and iOS. AT&T will launch HSPA+ smartphones that include the Motorola (NYSE:MOT) ATRIX 4G, the HTC Inspire 4G and the Samsung Infuse 4G.

The carrier also said it plans to launch two tablets, including its first LTE tablet, by mid summer. Additional LTE tablets are planned for the second half of the year. The first tablet, running HSPA+, is made by Motorola, has a 10.1-inch screen, runs on Nvidia’s 1 GHz Tegra 2 processor and supports the “Honeycomb” version of Android.

By contrast, Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ) has already launched 39 LTE markets, covering 110 million POPs. The carrier currently offers two laptop dongles, and charges $50 per month for 5 GB of LTE data and $80 for 10 GB of data. Verizon is expected to unveil a range of Android smartphones and at least one tablet here for its LTE network.

The faster LTE the faster all your Mobile Real Estate listings will populate with our QR Code mobile software. RealtyGo

Combine WiFi with local powerline systems?? Is it possible!

 

Powerlines and Wifi with RealtyGo.co

Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) agreed to purchase WiFi chipmaker Atheros for $3.1 billion, or $45 per share.

 

San Jose-based Atheros is known for its innovations with WiFi chipsets. Earlier this year the company teamed with Wilocity to make WiGig-WiFi chips, and it also has been exploring ways to combine WiFi with powerline systems.

The deal is the largest ever for Qualcomm, and is expected to close sometime in the first half of the year. The New York Times first reported on the tie-up late Tuesday.

The acquisition would provide Qualcomm, the world’s largest maker of cell phone chipsets, with a way to diversify beyond its core market into new growth areas such as tablets and smartphones, which require more processing power and must be able to connect via many different technologies besides cellular, such as WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. The deal could also allow Qualcomm to compete more heavily with longtime rival Broadcom.

This isn’t the first time Qualcomm has tried to get into the WiFi game. In 2006, the company purchased a WiFi chipmaker Airgo Networks.

Qualcomm is fresh off another big deal. In late December, the firm sold its 700 MHz spectrum that is uses for its soon-to-be-decommissioned FLO TV service to AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T) for $1.925 billion.

Baby boomers are the fastest growing demographic for mobile text messaging…

The fastest growing demographic for Mobile Text Messaging or simply (people who use text messaging to communicate) is 45-64. More evidence that baby boomers are rapidly adopting new technologies.  Backed up by a recent article in the New York Times, on the front page, briefly explained how baby boomers are taking time for them selves and spending money, even buying 2nd and 3rd homes and vacationing on a regular basis. Google Search New York Times and Baby Boomers for more information.

“Text messaging is no longer just a young person’s activity. The average age of a texter is 38 years old – up from 19 years old in 2003. The fastest growing demo is 45-64,” says Jeff Hasen, CMO at HipCricket.  “ Part of the reason is that kids and grandkids don’t often use phones for talking – if you want to communicate with little Billy or Janie, you need to let your fingers do the talking (texting). In 2008, for the first time, the number of text SMS/MMS messages sent in the U.S. exceeded the number of calls.”

Short Message Service (SMS) is the text communication service component of phone, web or mobile communication systems, using standardizedcommunications protocols that allow the exchange of short text messages between fixed line or mobile phone devices.

Multimedia Messaging Service, or MMS, is a standard way to send messages that include multimedia content to and from mobile phones. It extends the core SMS (Short Message Service) capability that allowed exchange of text messages only up to 160 characters in length.

The most popular use is to send photographs from camera-equipped handsets, although it is also popular as a method of delivering news and entertainment content including videos, pictures, text pages and ringtones.

Women are active text users.  Here are the stats for women 45-54 (comScore, 12/08)

  • 51% sent a text in last month
  • 23% sent a text almost daily
  • 39% took a photo
  • 5.7% accessed weather info
  • 4.7% accessed news
  • 11.8% received info on their phone about a product, service or brand

Hope this information is helpful, Now when your respected elder tells you, i feel out of touch with new technology, you can reassure them that they may be in the prime demographic… So embrace change and pick up a new Smartphone today.
