Samsung reveals new LTE-equipped Chromebook Plus V2

Earlier this year, Samsung revealed a refresh of its well-regarded 2017 Chromebook Plus. The new Chromebook Plus (V2) had an unadventurous name, but it had most of what made the original great, sadly sacrificing its incredible display for a faster Y-series Celeron (read: not one of the bad ones). Now Samsung has further revealed an LTE-equipped version of the V2. The extra connectivity comes at a $100 premium, though. The new model is $599, available November 2nd.

You can buy the Pocophone F1 in the US, but you probably shouldn't

Xiaomi is a huge smartphone maker in many parts of the world, but not in the US. When the company announced its Pocophone sub-brand, there was some hope it could come to American shores. That doesn't appear to be the case, at least not officially. You can already purchase the Pocophone F1 from several US eBay sellers, but there are a few things to know before you do.

Samsung announces LTE-enabled SmartThings Tracker

Keeping track of all your things can be a challenge. You could try just having fewer things, but that's no fun. Instead, why not get more things to keep track of the things you already have? Samsung has announced a device to accomplish precisely that. The SmartThings Tracker uses GPS and LTE to monitor the location of whatever you want, but you'll need to go through a carrier for the LTE service.

US Cellular's new unlimited plan pays you back if you stay under 3GB of data usage

We all know that the supposed "unlimited" plans offered by US carriers actually impose a large number of limits. So, you might as well get something for putting up with them.

The 5G Moto Mod will be an awkward but necessary first step into the era of 5G phones

The race to 5G is on with every carrier promising big rollouts of next-generation networks in the coming year, but what about the phones? The first wave of consumer 5G devices are likely to be Wi-Fi hotspots, but Motorola thinks it has a way to offer the world's first 5G phone with the recently announced 5G Moto Mod. It's a strange device that will require certain compromises, but it's still probably better than the way we transitioned to 4G. Remember the Thunderbolt? Yeah, that's a low bar, but still.

New Ookla and OpenSignal reports agree that T-Mobile has the fastest LTE with Verizon close behind

The big four US carriers (possibly soon to be the big three) are always arguing about who has the best network, but that's usually just marketing spin.

T-Mobile expands free roaming to 210 countries, adds $5 international LTE day passes

T-Mobile was the first US carrier to really push the idea of free international roaming, although the data speeds have always been terrible. Still, your T-Mobile phone works in other countries, which is more than you could say a few years ago. Now, Tmo has expanded free roaming to even more countries, and there's a cheaper option if you want LTE data while traveling the world.
