I recently had a conversation with John Dwyer, the AT&T President who leads the AT&T Prepaid Portfolio that includes Cricket Wireless and AT&T PREPAID. He said Cricket just crossed the 10 million subscriber mark. That level of growth shows not only how solid AT&T is in the pre-pai

January 29, 2019


Motorola is at it again. This time they’re trying to revive the Razr phone. Razr was successful for a few short years (a decade ago), but it rose, then fell, then disappeared entirely as the Apple iPhone, Google Android and Samsung Galaxy rose. Now, since the larger smartphone marketplace is sl

Import from computerworld.com
January 14, 2019


It was no surprise that many of the exhibits at CES 2019 were centered around wireless and 5G. Perhaps because I’m a wireless analyst and columnist, I view the world through this wireless lens anyway. But it should be obvious to everyone at this point that 5G is becoming very real...and that is

Import from computerworld.com
January 07, 2019


Why, if Microsoft is such a successful company, has it failed in wireless and smartphones over the last decade? Sure, it still leads in operating system wars with its Windows OS and its software like Office, but that may have as much to do with lack of real competition than the more important cus

CES 2019 should change name to CES 5G 2019
Import from computerworld.com
January 02, 2019


CES 2019 is coming to Las Vegas next week and from the pre-briefings I am taking, what I am learning is that it may be time for a name change. Instead of calling the show CES 2019, I think it should be called CES 5G 2019. The reason is simple. So much of the innovation and enhancements to the pro

Google has been busy entering all three segments of the wireless industry with their Android OS, Pixel smartphones and Project Fi services. Three months ago, I wrote a column discussing Google's activity in the wireless space. Some of their effort is very successful. Others, not so much. So, let

November 26, 2018


In the race to mobile 5G, it seems AT&T and Verizon are in it to be first. While I understand there is an honor that goes to the winner, in the scheme of things does it really make much of a difference to users? After all both Apple iPhone and Google Android compete and Apple is always later
