AT&T Launches International 4G LTE Roaming In Over A Dozen Additional Countries

AT&T is currently the only carrier to offer 4G LTE roaming in other countries, a change it rolled out back in December. At the time, only Canada was supported, followed by the UK. Now the carrier is rolling out the service in around a dozen additional countries. These range from locales as small as Hong Kong and Singapore to places as expansive as Australia and Russia.

AT&T now also supports 4G LTE roaming in:

  • Antigua & Barbuda
  • Australia
  • France
  • Guam
  • Hong Kong
  • Japan
  • Malaysia
  • Singapore
  • South Korea
  • Spain
  • Switzerland
  • Russia 

Since carriers in different countries use various wireless frequencies, a device that works in one country may not work in another.

[Update: Winners] Win One Of Two NVIDIA SHIELDs From NVIDIA And Android Police

So, you may or may not have noticed that a pretty special thing happened recently: we surpassed 500,000 followers on Google+. Five hundred thousand. Half-a-million people now get their AP fix directly from Google+, which we think is pretty great.

As a huge thanks to all of our G+ followers (and everyone else who reads AP, of course), we teamed up with NVIDIA to offer a giveaway that's just as special as the occasion it represents: we're giving away two SHIELDs.

[MWC 2014] Sony's SmartEyeglass Concept May Just Be A Google Glass Competitor To Keep Your Eyes On

Sony is showing off its own take on Google Glass at Mobile World Congress, and while the current name, the SmartEyeglass concept, doesn't flow as well as Google's, it already looks less weird. The company has managed to cram an accelerometer, compass, brightness sensor, embedded camera, microphone, and other bits of hardware inside a bulkier but otherwise normal-looking frame.


The company first unveiled the product at CES, and details remain scarce.

[MWC 2014] ZTE Shows Off The Grand Memo II LTE: Bigger, Thinner, With A Side Of KitKat

The phablet market is exploding, and just about every manufacturer wants a piece of the oversized pie. Here at Mobile World Congress ZTE has just announced the Grand Memo II LTE, the successor to last year's Grand Memo. It ups the screen size to a full 6 inches of IPS goodness. Well, maybe goodness  - they aren't saying what the resolution is just yet, just "HD," which I'll assume means 720p.

[MWC 2014] Triple X: Nokia Unveils The X, X+, And XL Smartphones - All Based On AOSP, Zero Google To Be Found

Nokia unveiled its long-awaited Android-powered phone today, but in something of a twist, it turned out to be not just one device, but three! As expected, the Nokia X, X+, and XL all run software based on the Android Open Source Project, but that software looks very little like Android in most respects. Like Amazon's Fire OS, Nokia's "X" Android fork eschews all of Google's various products and services in favor of a heavily modified user experience and custom app ecosystem.
