My boss tossed this my way. It's utterly and completely incredible: a working mobile broadband solution that could well transform the way we think of cellular service. It's called pCell, and I have to admit, IF it functions full-scale, it WILL change the world.

The development of this sort of technology I considered eventually inevitable. Glad to see it will be around sooner than I expected.

Psyched, psyched, PSYCHED! The current HTC One is one of my favorite Android phones, an elegant (if aging) concoction of aluminum and glass that's probably the nicest-looking piece of tech this side of Apple.

I've had my issues with LG phones, but I've always loved their knock-on feature, and can't get enough of it whenever I'm testing one of their products. Knock Code was a logical evolution, and I must say, I'm looking forward to learning a heck of a lot more.

Hmmm. It might be time for me to switch back to Chrome. I love Firefox's development feature set, but this new policy needles at me.
Mozilla is working on its own OS and hardware abroad, but it's also trying to make its existing software more relevant for users... and a little more profitable. Today, the organization announced a...

The review is up! What were my final thoughts about the LG G Flex? Well, if you follow me you sort of already know, but now it's all official!

Glad you ended up loving your new phone, bud! Yeah, if the display isn't an issue, there's a lot to love about the phone. And come on -- that curve IS pretty awesome. =)

Seeing reports that the iPhone 6 will have an ƒ/1.8 aperture. Holy moly, that's wide. I have to admit, for an 8MP camera without optical image stabilization, the iPhone rocks photography.

Okay, review copy of the Nokia Lumia Icon is IN! I'll be putting this baby through its paces, but if there's anything specific you want me to check or test, just shout!

I want to know how many apps you can get on there and how much data stored before it starts to lag.

Honest question: Anyone out there spend the dough on a mobile hotspot, rather than just use their smartphones if they ever need tethering? If so, how have your experiences been?

 I used Virgin for a while since it is cheaper than adding an expensive data plan to my phone. It worked great and in motion. However, it  "logged out" some how and I could not figure out how to get it to work again and Virgin provided zero help. Ended up being about $100 failure since I cannot figure out how to get it to work again.

I'm pretty sure Verizon secretly upped their Mobile Broadband data plan prices during the "More Everything" update unveiled today.

I'm in the middle of completely refreshing our Mobile Broadband site (http://mobile-broadband-services-review.toptenreviews.com/, but be warned, it's out of date!), with fresh data and reviews. I tracked down Verizon's data options a few days ago. For data-only plans, the prices were $20 lower at every tier than they are today.

Did I miss something? Am I checking the wrong sources? Or do ALL plans use the "More Everything" prices now, regardless of whether you have a smartphone on the plan?
We rank the best mobile broadband services with side-by-side comparisons. Read in-depth service reviews and mobile broadband services articles. Compare features, prices and browse hundreds of screenshots to help you make the most informed decision as to which mobile broadband is right for you.

Story
Tagline
I took the road less travelled by, and plagiarized Robert Frost.
Introduction
The resident smartphone and carrier guru at TopTenREVIEWS, I keep tabs on everything mobile -- the latest Verizon and T-Mobile plans, the newest phones, and the craziest tech advancements. If there's a new Apple announcement, I'm watching it; if Samsung releases the next iteration of its Galaxy Note line, I'm all ears.
Bragging rights
I once fell from a 20-foot cliff and crushed three of my vertebrae together. I grew up in Hong Kong! Coincidentally, that's where I had that fall. Well played, Hong Kong.
