Dialed In 144: 4G at last! (podcast)

4G coverage is (finally) spotted in San Francisco, and there are rumors we'll hear more about RIM's iPad-competing tablet next week. All that and more on this week's Dialed In.

You may remember us lamenting the lack of 4G coverage here in San Francisco (and even inconsistent 3G coverage in some pockets), but all that changed when Nicole noticed the 4G WiMax indicator pop up on her Sprint Overdrive device. MetroPCS had its share of 4G news, too, this week, when it opened an LTE network in Las Vegas. This is a pretty bold move for the second-tier carrier.

In other news, the Droid X got Android 2.2 and Adobe's Flash Player; Nicole outlines a plan for better Android customer service; and we discuss rumors of the BlackBerry tablet--which may or may not be called the BlackPad. We also wish Jason a tearful goodbye as he roams on to other pastures, and welcome Benito as our new technical producer.
