Mapping 4G: AT&T Adds Markets Ahead of iPhone 5
Ma Bell said Friday that it has launched 4G LTE in Philadelphia and in Wilmington, Del. This follows the launch of Albany and Rochester networks in New York on Wednesday.LTE is a fourth-generation (4G) wireless technology that allows users to upload and download audio, video and more at speeds of several Mbit/s or more over-the-air. In fact, AT&T markets its LTE as being 10 times faster than 3G. (See What We Mean When We Say '4G'.)Why this mattersThe launches -- Philadelphia in particular -- help AT&T fill in some coverage holes in the busy northeastern area of the United States.

The iPhone 5: A Fashion Disaster?
Consider this: The launch of the original iPhone and its revolutionary touch screen in 2007 slowly but surely made it acceptable to wear fingerless gloves again. Now, there's a whole cottage industry ready to provide you "fun and fancy" fingerless hand warmers so you can still surf the Web on the move.Now Apple has launched an iPhone with a bigger four-inch screen. This follows the super-sized screens of the best-selling Samsung Corp. Galaxy S III and Note, which was an unabashed smartphone-cum-tablet, or "Phablet" if you prefer.Naturally, this trend toward bigger screens has me worried. Will the extra pocket space required for our slim-yet-massive phones inevitably lead to the reintroduction of the parachute pant into polite society?In other words, is this video safely in the past or actually a nightmarish vision of our future?
OS Watch: HP Wants Back in Smartphone Game
Whitman tells Fox Business News that HP is working on a smartphone but knows it has to get it right this time. Her mantra is "better right than faster than we should be there.""We have to ultimately offer a smartphone because in many countries of the world that would be your first computing device," Whitman said.Last month, HP revamped its webOS brand under the moniker Gram, which it plans to run as a wholly owned subsidiary focused on building devices to feature the OS. (See OS Watch: HP Unit Resurrects WebOS.)In other mobile OS news:Apple's map gap: Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL)'s latest OS, iOS 6, will go live on Sept. 19, two days before the iPhone 5 launches. The company showed off some improvements to the OS at its iPhone 5 unveiling, including its new, proprietary mapping app,, which will replace Google Maps in the new OS. TechCrunch has spent some time with the app and says it's not up to snuff yet, which makes sense given Google (Nasdaq: GOOG)'s head start and its experience with maps on the Web as well. (See Battle of the 3-D Mobile Maps and Apple iOS 6 Shakes Up Mobile Communications.)Moto snapped with Apple's rubber band: Courtroom drama is far from over for the mobile handset makers. Google's Motorola Mobility is being ordered to recall all the Android tablets and smartphones it has shipped in Germany that infringe on Apple's "rubber band" scrolling patent that releases documents back to the center of the phone's screen after a user drags them away. The patent was one of the key ones in question in Apple's trial against Samsung Corp. in the U.S. as well. Moto is expected to appeal the ruling.

Google said this week that Android has passed the 500 million devices activated globally landmark at a rate of 1.3 million added every single day, Google's Hugo Barra announced via Google+. At this growth rate, the company is on track to hit 1 billion by the end of the 2013.Samsung hits a high note: Samsung's latest smartphone-cum-tablet, the Android-based Galaxy Note II, could double the sales of its predecessor. The South Korean company's mobile chief JK Shin told reporters on Friday that sales could top 20 million. The original device, which reached 10 million in sales, just recently went on sale in the U.S. with T-Mobile USA . But Shin said the follow-up version will launch sometime in October.
