Verizon Wireless will get its own Lumia 2520 tablet -- a day earlier than AT&T.

The official Microsoft Web page taking preorders for Nokia's Lumia 1520 phone went live Wednesday and then suddenly disappeared.
The page -- which now says "this product is currently unavailable" -- had listed the 1520 at $199 with the usual two-year agreement, or $549 without a contract. Carried by AT&T, the phone would be available in black, white, yellow, or red.
Microsoft also had listed a release date of November 15.
Why did Microsoft put up the preorder page, only to take it down? A Microsoft spokesperson explained the snafu in the following statement sent … Read more
AT&T is once again said to be vying for the world's second-largest mobile carrier, Vodafone.
AT&T's executives are currently "laying the groundwork" for a takeover of the carrier, which could expand both companies' reach to more than 500 million wireless subscribers, according to Bloomberg.
Verizon and AT&T were originally said to be involved in plans to snap up Vodafone back in April, though Verizon denied the report. Separately, last month Verizon agreed to spend $130 billion to buy out Vodafone's stake of its own wireless business (which had been … Read more

AT&T subscribers who own the HTC One should keep an eye out for Android 4.3.
On Tuesday, AT&T confirmed that it has officially started pushing the latest flavor of Jelly Bean to HTC's flagship phone. HTC One owners should see a notification that the update is available for download. Users can also manually check for the update by tapping the setting for AT&T Software Update and then choosing the option to Tap Check for Updates. After the update has installed, the phone will automatically restart.
AT&T posted and quickly removed a tweet meant to commemorate the Sept. 11 attacks, but ultimately ended up offending many.
The tweet on Wednesday included the simple words, "Never Forget," and an image which many found in poor taste. The image was the typical New York skyline at night, with two beams of light emerging from Ground Zero, an image commonly used in tribute pictures. But AT&T added an image of a smartphone on top of the scene, striking some as a lame attempt at marketing.
The tweet elicited several negative responses, many of … Read more
