clock January 11, 2011 14:10 by author Blog@BMT

After months, even years of anticipation Verizon announced Tuesday that they will offer the iPhone 4 for its customers on February 10th.  Not only does this mark the beginning of Verizon offering the iPhone, but it also marks the end of AT&T's exclusivity over the device since it first debuted in 2007.  This event absolutely opens the floodgates to all sorts of discussions about the future of these two carriers, Apple, and the iPhone itself, not to mention the rest of the cell phone industry.  Below Andy and Chris will conduct a point/counterpoint discussing the following subjects:  What the release of the iPhone to Verizon means for AT&T, What it means for Verizon, What it means for Apple, and What it means for CDMA vs GSM iPhone. See our discussion after the jump.

AT&T, T Mobile, and Verizon Announce Isis Network

clock November 16, 2010 07:53 by author Andy Hellmuth

First Facebook is trying to take over email, and now AT&T, T Mobile, and Verizon have announced that in the near future they will be introducing the Isis national mobile commerce network, or Isis for short. So what is Isis? To make a long story short; AT&T, T Mobile, and Verizon basically want you to say goodbye to your credit cards and use your cell phones to make payments, use coupons, and track your purchases at different retail stores. The technology will use near-field communication, or NFC, technology which is much like the technology used in credit cards to be able to simply tap the card to make at payment at certain stores. It's a unique concept, and some would argue it's a logical step in the evolution of the cell phone, but there's clearly going to be questions about security. This will definitely be a technology that we'll be keeping our eyes on as it continues to be developed. For more information, check out the press release after the jump.
