Qualcomm, the chip company that recently unveiled its Snapdragon 820 microprocessor, which can learn about and evolve with its user, is also at work putting Long-Term Evolution modems in Internet-connected cars. The company touts its LTE technology as a "good neighbor" to Wi-Fi, which could be a positive for T-Mobile phones loaded with Qualcomm chips that are moving toward using LTE over unlicensed Wi-Fi, Jared Newman writes.
Sony has introduced the successor to its PlayStation Portable -- the PlayStation Vita, which is expected to go on sale in the U.S. in time for the holiday season. The device will cost $249 for a Wi-Fi version and $299 for the 3G mobile model, according to the company's Kazuo Hirai, who added that AT&T would be the exclusive carrier.
Reports indicate that T-Mobile's Hot Spot @Home dual-mode phone service will launch nationwide Wednesday. The unlicensed mobile-access service will allow users to connect via Wi-Fi or cellular networks.
