US Cellular back in May of 2011 announced that it would be rolling out 4G LTE to about a quarter of its customer base "before the holiday season." While that deadline may have come and gone without a word from the regional carrier, it just announced that the rollout is officially set to begin "next month" in select cities:

  • Milwaukee, Madison and Racine, WI
  • Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and Davenport, IA
  • Portland and Bangor, ME
  • Greenville, NC

The company also announced the first two devices that will run on its LTE network: the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy S Aviator.

If you use Mint to manage your finances, there's a good chance that the smartphone counterpart app is one of your most launched (if you manage your finances the way I do, anyway). While using Mint on your smartphone is an ideal way to get a quick look at your finances, the entire experience left something to be desired if you fired the app up on a tablet. Until now.

The new and improved tablet-friendly version of Mint is pretty spectacular, actually.

PR-ASUS-Eee-Pad-Transformer-Prime-front-Amethyst-Gray_thumb1

Despite its former problems, when the ICS update started rolling out to the Transformer Prime earlier this month, users were elated. However, some users were immediately hit with a problem while trying to update: serial number not found. This error, as simple as it sounds, completely prevents the Prime from being able to perform any sort of update, be it manual or OTA.

ASUS is aware of the issue an working on a fix, but in the meantime, our beloved dev community has been cooking up something of their own, and it looks like it's ready to go.

HTC-Ville-2

We've been hearing about the HTC Ville, which should be set for an announcement at Mobile World Congress next month, since November of last year. The guys at HTC Hub recently spent some hands-on time with this upcoming mid-ranger and shot some video showing what it's all about. Prepare to be underwhelmed.

The original video (found at HTC Hub) has been made private, so we found an alternative.

Considering the low video quality, it's hard to say exactly what has been changed in Sense 4 compared to previous versions, aside from the pretty animations.

Over the weekend, we found out about Moto's upcoming dev-friendly version of the RAZR, its first device with an unlockable bootloader. What we didn't have, however, were any details about how the unlock process would work, how it would affect the warranty, and so on. Moto has now posted the details answering many of those exactly questions, and there's one thing for sure - it doesn't look like it's going to be as good as it sounds.

T-Mobile UK just announced the plan to kill all plans for our brothers and sisters across the pond. It's called The Full Monty and it's everything that you could possibly want in a mobile plan - unlimited calls, texts, data, and tethering all for one price.

The plan has four different variants, each of which is mostly differentiated by applicable devices. Here's a quick overview of what it looks like:

If you notice, the most affordable plan is also the one available on the widest variety of devices, but it also has one hindrance compared to the other choices: it only offers 2,000 talk-time minutes to networks other than T-Mo.

So, there's this thing called Formspring. Apparently it's really big, yet many people have never heard of it. Here's the gist: you ask people questions, they answer you. In turn, people ask you questions and you answer them. Sounds exhilarating, no? You can get questions from users you know, users you may not know, or anonymous questions (that's where it gets... fun).

Now this Formspring thing is native on Android.

While it seems like the entire world has been looking at ASUS regarding the Transformer Prime's GPS issues, there has been another device plagued with GPS problems that seemed to somehow remain under-the-radar (bad GPS pun, I know): the Epic 4G Touch. A quick search of the internet will reveal dozens of threads across various forums where users are discussing (read: really pissed off about) the E4GT's lack of usable GPS.

If you need more storage space on your device but are waiting for the perfect deal to show up before buying a microSD card, here's the one you've been waiting on. Newegg has a Patriot class 10 16GB card going for a mere ten bones right now after a ten dollar mail-in-rebate. So, technically, you're spending $20 to start off, but you're getting $10 of it back later - probably when you have already forgotten about it.

Update: According to the Vopium blog, the app has been updated with a fix for this issue.  We'll crack it open in just a bit to ensure everything has indeed been addressed.

Users of the popular VoIP app Vopium (here's the older version with many more installs) may want to put all usage of the app on indefinite hiatus, at least for the time being. It was recently discovered that the app sends basically all of the sensitive information, including username, password, device IMEI, geolocation, and contact list in plaintext.
