AT&T Galaxy Note II Receiving Minor OTA Update To Version MA4, Likely Fixes Exynos Exploit

AT&T's version of the Galaxy Note II is receiving a minor software update this afternoon, presumably patching the Exynos chipset exploit discovered back in December.

The new software version is I317UCAMA4, and the update is 8.45MB in size. AT&T refers to the changes as a "chipset security enhancement," so it's pretty clear that the Exynos exploit fix is probably the major feature of this patch. We've not noticed any other changes as part of the update, and the Android version remains at 4.1.2.

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

Want An HTC One VX for V-Day, for practically nothing? Then head to AT&T's website or Amazon, depending upon which color you prefer. 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.

AT&T MiFi Liberate Hotspot Review: It Has LTE, A Touchscreen, And Amazing Battery Life - Any More Questions?

Mobile data hotspots aren't the world's most exciting products, though if you travel consistently, they can be an absolute lifesaver. But let's be brutally honest: the average mobile data consumer really doesn't care about the hotspot itself - as long as it works. They care about the network, and the monthly pricing. That's really it.

The hotspot is basically just a tiny little Wi-Fi router with a cellular modem and a lithium-ion battery inside.

Verizon Sells Lower 700MHz B Block To AT&T For $1.9 Billion (And Some AWS Spectrum) - Here's What That Means

For most people, wireless spectrum is a topic best discussed right before bed with a warm glass of milk. It is boring. But it's important. While landline internet is, as we know, a series of tubes, wireless internet is more like a giant fleet of invisible flying trucks... or something.

To put it plainly, long-range, high-bandwidth spectrum usable with cell phones is a finite resource. Now, the scarcity of that resource in reality is very debatable - vast swaths of basically unused (or severely underutilized) wireless spectrum are in this range, much of it belonging to the military, public safety, television, and various executive agencies.

AT&T Is Going Shopping For A European Carrier To Buy Or Merge With, Says WSJ

AT&T has a problem on its hands. It's big, but is it big enough? If you're a CEO of a major corporation the answer to that question is always "no." However, the carrier has difficulty expanding on the home front. An overwhelming majority of U.S. citizens have phones with one carrier or another, so there's very little wiggle room to grab new customers. And gaining in market share when you (and all  your competitors!) are dead set on locking people into two-year contracts is very difficult.

AT&T Nexus 7 In Play Store Now Comes With A $100 Bill Credit If You Sign A 2-Year Contract

Samsung's Galaxy Rugby Pro On AT&T Getting The Bump To Android 4.1

Back in September, Samsung announced a new ruggedized mid-ranger for AT&T: the Galaxy Rugby Pro. Now, that phone you probably don't remember is getting Jelly Bean. It's pretty weird.

The update, which bumps this rough-and-tumble handset up to Android 4.1, brings many good things for the device, like Google Now and Project Butter, but it also includes some other enhancements and fixes:

  • Camera enhancements: New live camera and camcorder filters offer a range of camera effects, pause and resume while recording a video
  • Pop Up Play update: Easily resize or pause the Pop Up Play picture-in-picture video window.
