In the (seemingly) never-ending race to offer LTE, U.S. Cellular has just announced a fairly major expansion to its 4G LTE network that will take place over the course of 2013. By the time the end of the year rolls around, the company expects to offer LTE to 87 percent of its customers, which is a 26 percent increase over its current network.

At the current time, the company is being a little vague about exactly which cities are going to get LTE coverage, citing only that "select cities in California, Kansas and Nebraska" will gain the ultra-fast connection, with specific mention of "Lincoln, Neb., Omaha, Neb., Manhattan, Kan., Eureka, Calif.

Qualcomm Reveals Quick Charge 1.0 - Charges Your Phone 40% Faster, And You May Already Have It

Smartphones that charge slowly suck. And in a world where battery capacities are getting larger by the month, long charge times could become a legitimate gripe. But Qualcomm has apparently been on the case for quite a while now, quietly implementing a technology it calls Quick Charge 1.0 into some of its Snapdragon chipsets.

Quick Charge is actually a physical circuit built into the chipset that interfaces with the USB connector, so this isn't some kind of firmware voodoo.

Quick Tip: Long Press Google Search Suggestions To Pop Them Into The Search Bar

Remember that little diagonal arrow that used to appear next to suggestions in the Google Search box as you typed? The arrows could be used to insert suggestions into the search bar, while you kept typing away. For a while now, though, the arrows have been missing from Google Search.

WhatsApp Messenger Beta APK Released With Snazzy Holo Interface

Popular cross-platform messenger service WhatsApp is a little behind the times. It's part of the depressingly huge collection of Android apps that ape their iOS counterparts, never aspiring to anything higher. That appears to be close to an end, as the latest beta release of the Android client has a new user interface, and it conforms to the Holo guidelines that the rest of your phone (hopefully) uses.

[Deal Alert] HTC One VX In Red And White Is $.01 From AT&T And Amazon Wireless, Respectively

Both have the device on sale for $.01 with a new or extended contract, but AT&T has the red version, while Amazon has the white. The regular subsidized price from both retailers for the phone is $49.99. I'd go with the white ( it looks a little more snazzy) but there's no accounting for taste.

Popular cloud syncing and sharing app SugarSync, which promises to give you "all of your data at your fingertips," got a major update today – its first since July 20th, 2012.

Probably the most obvious change is to the app's interface.
