Called the Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi 510L and made by Novatel, this gadget ships January 31 for $19.99 and continues the carrier’s line of portable 4G sharing products. The hockey puck shaped 510L can spread its 4G LTE data connection to up to 10 mobile devices such as smartphone, tablets, and laptops via wireless Wi-Fi connection.
ZTE is continuing its long line of budget phones with a new entrant called the ZTE Blade C. The device, cheap enough to entice anyone looking for any ordinary smartphone, will come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the first in the series to launch with the modern version of Android. It looks like the Blade C already exists in some form over in China, as the ZTE V889S is said to be nearly identical. That particular device costs just over $100 so we wouldn’t expect the Blade C to be much more than that.
The package you’re getting features a 4 inch WVGA display, MediaTek’s 1GHz dual-core MTK6577 processor, 512MB of RAM, a 3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth 4.0, 4GB of internal storage, a 1,600mAh battery and more. ZTE wasn’t shy in letting us know that this device is totally aimed at the entry-level range of the market, and it hopes the phone will sell like hotcakes to those not interested in spending multiple hundreds to have a capable smartphone.
For a budget phone the Blade C doesn’t look all that bad in form, but it will be the function that should determine its fate. We’ll have to see if a subpar MediaTek chipset and just 512MB of RAM is enough to keep Jelly Bean going smoothly, though we imagine Project Butter helps it out a ton. As you might expect we’re not exactly sure where this device is headed, but a European release of some sort is expected and it would be a miracle if we were to see it anywhere near North America.

Nokia’s music-streaming service on its Lumia handsets is getting a bit of a boost, putting it directly in the sights of competing services like Pandora One and Spotify.
According to a blog post from Nokia’s Ian Delaney today, the company is officially unveiling a new “Nokia Music+” service that basically serves as an add-on to the smartphones’ existing radio music capabilities.
For those unaware, Nokia’s Mix Radio service delivers a ton of playlists – put together by an actual team at Nokia – that Lumia smartphone owners can browse through and jam at their convenience. Users can skip songs and, better yet, download a limited number of songs to their devices for offline playback.
The new Nokia Music+ service unlocks unlimited song skips and downloads for those that pony up a $3.99 monthly subscription fee.
This handsome, portable Bluetooth Speaker system is a versatile pleasure package. A three inch cube, it is a powerhouse of surprisingly high quality sound for such a small device.
The dynamic sound is attributed to the 2×2 Watt build in speaker allowing stereo sound to be output through a dual channel speaker system with two Watts per channel. The compact enclosure contains as large as possible speakers that significantly enhance low-end bass frequencies.
Forget the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers — Research In Motion is hoping the BlackBerry 10 will be the main attraction at next month’s Super Bowl.
The company today confirmed that its new mobile operating system will be featured in a Super Bowl XLVII commercial — a first for the Canada-based company.
RIM kept mum about details of the 30-second ad, saying only that it will air in the U.S. and Canada.
“A Super Bowl commercial is a great opportunity to show the re-designed, re-engineered and re-invented BlackBerry to tens of millions of consumers on the largest advertising stage of the year,” RIM’s chief marketing officer, Frank Boulben, said in a statement.
Samsung has begun distributing the Android 4.1.2 update OTA across the globe for a little while now. But if you haven’t received your update and are getting a little impatient, you can install it right now using the Flash program “Odin,” which is not at all difficult to use.
To snag Android 4.1.2 on your Galaxy S2, first you’ll need to install Odin and Samsung’s stock ROM. Sammobile offers both as downloads, but because it can be painfully slow to download them from their site, we’re offering them to you on our servers as well. Here (http://files.androidpit.info/content/I9100XWLS8_I9100FOPLS3_FOP.zip) you can download Samsung’s stock ROM, and here (http://files.androidpit.info/content/Odin3-v1.85.zip) you can download Odin. Obligatory warning: AndroidPIT cannot be held responsible if you follow our instructions incorrectly and end up damaging your phone.
We tried to find an awesome Google Glass image (like the one above) to make you all feel better, but the bottom line is Google’s not letting their new toy out into the real world just yet. According to multiple sources the Project Glass developer event will be held to extremely tight NDA agreements. The media and developers attending will not be able to disclose or share anything of the fun things they do and learn while using the augmented reality eyewear.
Basically attendees won’t be able to take tons of pictures and video, and anything exciting or new we learn will not be allowed to be shared to the general public. According to ReadWriteWeb developers will get their own developer Gmail accounts and images will be automatically uploaded to Google+ taken with the glasses, but we aren’t sure if they’ll be public or private.
What it all boils down to is this project is no where near being ready yet. Google’s still working out the details, the wireless radios haven’t cleared the FCC, and they are keeping everything tightly concealed until further notice. The end of the details do confirm developers may get their own set, and are advised not to drive while using Google Glass. They’re instructed to use caution walking the streets and such. Which means they might be out in the wild as soon as next week and possibly we’ll learn more details that way. I’m still throwing my money at Google. I want some now!
