No iPhone? Have an iPod touch and MiFi

http://www.mirror.co.uk

3 is to sell its MiFi Wi-Fi mobile hotspot gizmo bundled with an iPod touch, to let you Skype your mates wherever you are. Is this the cheapest “iPhone” ever?

A bunch of new iPhone vendors have popped out into the open recently, including Orange, Vodafone, and even Tesco, so Three’s obviously keen to get in on the action. It’s not selling the iPhone, but the next best thing: an iPod touch bundled with MiFi mobile Wi-Fi so you can get online with it wherever there’s 3G and dial your friends over Skype.

Naturally there are some downsides to this mashup: the MiFi needs to be charged, you get no GPS, and it’s only the 8GB iPod touch, not the 64GB. But hey, if you’re planning on getting MiFi anyway (and you should be), think of it as a free iPod touch instead.

Update: AT&T 'pleased' with iPhone MMS rollout three days in

http://www.computerworld.com

Nearly three days after activating its multimedia messaging service (MMS) to iPhone 3G and 3GS, AT&T Inc. said today it was "pleased with the rollout" despite continuing user complaints on its own Facebook page.

Many iPhone users complained late into the weekend and early today about the service not working or taking too long to send a photo. The service was activated mid-day Friday nationwide, after AT&T took heat from customers in June about not having it available when the iPhone 3GS launched. The complaints began rolling in later Friday but there were also some praise for the rollout mixed in.

"We are pleased with the rollout of MMS" to iPhone, said spokesman Mark Siegel in an e-mail sent about 9 a.m, reiterating comments he made when the service launched Friday. This morning, Eric Mooneyham endorsed that view with his Facebook comment, "Everything went fine for me. Just sent a video to someone on Verizon, and it went through just like that! Thx AT&T."

AT&T improves 3G coverage in metro New York, New Jersey

http://www.appleinsider.com

AT&T, the exclusive provider of the iPhone in the U.S., announced this week that it has strengthened its 3G signal in the populous Tri-State Region, and that further nationwide network improvements are also planned.

The wireless carrier said that it has deployed spectrum in the 850MHz across "large portions" of New York City, Long Island and New Jersey, and customers in that area will have better reception and speed, as well as better coverage indoors. The company noted that the 850MHz spectrum used is considered "high quality," and has been enabled for 3G use at more than 1,600 cell sites in the New York metropolitan area.

"AT&T's ongoing investment to build broadband networks helps to create jobs, fuel economic growth and enable our customers to quickly access the content that matters most to them," said Jay Summerson, vice president New York, AT&T external affairs. "Our customers have embraced smartphones and upgrades like the additional 3G spectrum deployment allow them to enjoy the benefits of these devices and mobile broadband for years to come."

Southwest to offer wi-fi on all flights by 2010

http://www.gadling.com

To add to its cheap fares, no-extra-fees policy, and wise-cracking flight attendants, Southwest Airlines is giving us one more reason to love the low-cost carrier. Southwest says that, by the first quarter of 2010, wi-fi internet will be available on all flights.

Southwest and Row 44 have been testing the service on four planes since February of 2009. In a press release, Southwest Airlines' Senior VP of Marketing and Revenue Management says Southwest is "very happy with both the technical performance of the system and the response of the Customers who have used it."

Southwest is also testing various price points, so there's no word yet on how much the service will cost.

Southwest Airlines to offer Wi-Fi on all flights next year

http://dailycontributor.com

There’s one more reason to fly Southwest. The Dallas-based airline says that, by the first quarter of 2010, Wi-Fi internet will be available on all of its aircraft.

“We have concluded our testing for in-flight Wi-Fi and we are very happy with both the technical performance of the system and the response of customers who have used it,” wrote Dave Ridley at the company’s blog. “We are pleased to be continuing with our plans to offer satellite-enabled broadband access through California-based Row 44.”

During testing, passengers used their laptops and smartphones to check e-mail, stream video and browse the web. However, Southwest will limit the use of VoIP and video chatting as a courtesy to other customers.

American Airlines and Delta already offer onboard Wi-Fi service on some of its flights, while US Airways says it will begin offering the service next year.

Agito brings VoIP over Wi-Fi to BlackBerry

http://www.v3.co.uk

Agito Networks has expanded its mobile unified communications (UC) offering to bring VoIP over Wi-Fi to the most popular BlackBerry devices. The development expands Agito's RoamAnywhere Mobility Router, and aims to help integrate UC into organisations' mobile devices, including Research in Motion (RIM) smartphones.RIM dominates the enterprise smartphone market, and is proving increasingly popular in the consumer market, and Agito has been keen to get its UC technology onto the platform. Agito acknowledged that this has not been an easy process, but said that it has released a tightly integrated application for the BlackBerry Bold 9000, and the Curve 8900, 8800 and 8300 models. A lack of Wi-Fi means that the Storm range has not been included in Agito's list. BlackBerry users could previously access only UC and PBX functionality over the cellular network, which negated some features as well as the coverage and cost-saving benefits delivered by combining Wi-Fi.
