AT&T and T-Mobile Merge Databases of Stolen iPhones

Reports state that about 38-40% of all NY and Washington, D.C. robberies included handsets in 2011. There is a new way to prevent iPhone thefts and protect iOS consumers, and it has been introduced by the two biggest U.S. carriers AT&T and T-Mobile. These companies will merge their databases of stolen handsets. I have already wrote you about AT&T and T-Mobil roaming after affects of the frankenstorm.

Similar plans were first announced in spring by all big mobile operators. They wanted to do this through the Federal Communications Comission, however AT&T and T-Mobile blocked iPhone database will be first to actually start working.

How can it work? You will get the answer inside this article.

iPhone Thefts

Combined Database and IMEI Number Bans

There is a report on CNET that shares details about T-Mobil and AT&T blocked iPhone databases merging. It is already working, at least it is alive by now. Both mobile operators can block gadgets from being used on their networks. You might have guessed that they simply ban iOS IMEI number which is unique for every Apple smartphone.

IMEI number identifies the iDevices and it carries important information about iPhone owner and the network he or she is using. Once the IMEI number is blocked, its device’s holder will not be able to make phone calls on domestic networks.

Fewer Thefts from Now On?

Even if your iPhone is stolen but its IMEI number is banned the thief won’t be able to make calls because no SIM cards will work on this device.

Nowadays only two carriers, AT&T and T-Mobile, will use this base and stop iDevices from being used by non-owners. Other mobile operators [Verizon and Sprint] will support this initiative and merge their databases by fall 2013.

Do you believe that this plan can really help iPhone customers? Personally I think it is a great idea however it will not help to find your handset in case it has really been stolen. It will save your phone bills which is cool and maybe “dry up the aftermarket for stolen devices,” according to Steve Largent from CTIA.

AT&T and T-Mobile Share Free Roaming in NJ and New York

Americans and visitors of New York City and New Jersey can now enjoy free roaming between 2 biggest U.S. GSM mobile operators, AT&T and T-Mobile. The two companies made a deal and now let all people affected by horrifying Hurricane Sandy keep in touch via both carriers’ networks.

There is no need to tell you about how horrible frankenstorm was – Hurricane Sandy brought Shark in New Jersey, that’s amazing!

According to the deal, AT&T and T-Mobile roaming free during hurricane Sandy will not charge customers when those make phone calls over their networks. They will charge each other. There is a press release posted by the two mobile operators that explains the deal to people from New York and New Jersey.

AT&T and T-Mobile Free Roaming

The two carriers have enabled free roaming on their networks meaning their clients can call each other just as they always have had but each phone call will be supported by the network which better operates in their location. This helps Americans and guests of the severely impacted areas to stay in touch. Frankenstorm swept along the Northeast coast and left much destruction. The whole country is now helping those who lost their homes and relatives. You can use hurricane Sandy apps to track it via iPhone and iPad.

Actually, AT&T and T-Mobile consumers will not get anything for free during roaming. Their data plans will remain the same but they will not pay for the roaming service if they call via T-Mobile while their device is attached to AT&T [and opposite] which is nice.

Are There Any Additional Charges?

As we have mentioned above, these are the two major U.S. carriers. Their networks are based on two standards: UMTS and GSM. Thus it is possible for users to share data and voice traffic between the 2 companies. The phones simply change networks when customers’s current subscribed service’s coverage disappears.

The roaming deal between T-Mobil and AT&T is affected by Hurricane Sandy. It is temporary and we have no idea how long this partnership can last since the latest reports say that about one fourth of the Northeast cell towers are still down.

Dear readers, stay safe!

Apparently, Apple can not cope with the high demand and delayed iPad mini shipping . It’s especially hard for tablets with LTE support for cellular networks. Registration of orders for new gadgets in the Apple online store began on Friday in US. Just in a few minutes shipping for the white version of the device with Wi-Fi was extended to two weeks. This means that users in the U.S. have bought the entire first batch of white mini-tablets. Black iPad Mini was ended on Sunday in US as well.

As looking at iPad Mini prices you can find $329 for WiFi version and $459 for WiFi + 4G LTE. Even with this big price iPad Mini remains the best mini tablet in the world. You can be sure that you will get device which is more powerful than others.

Compare 4th Generation iPad from Apple with New Nexus 10 from Google

On Monday internet corporation Google has released Nexus 10, 4th gen iPad competitor and in turn, Apple announced a compact tablet iPad mini to compete with Google Nexus 7. As you can see, the rivalry between Apple and Google has expanded beyond operating systems and smartphones.

Today I offer you to compare iPad 4 vs Nexus 10 on a number of parameters: the screen, corpus, operating system, performance, price, and other objective data. So, lets start with the screen. But you can first read about iPad 4 features and specs and only then compare these both gadgets.ipad 4 vs nexus 10

 

Display

Nexus 10 screen resolution is higher than that of the 4th generation iPad: 2560 × 1600 pixels with a pixel density of 299 per inch against 2048×1536 with the density of 264 pixels per inch. But when it comes to the quality of the matrix then it is hard to pick a winner, because the difference comes down to personal preference: some like a Retina iPad, while others will prefer the PLS matrix in Nexus 10. in this case both have advantages and disadvantages.

As to the ratio of the display 4th iPad has 4:3 which is more suited for web browsing and reading books, while the Nexus 10 is 16:10 easy to read.

Operating system

Nexus 10 runs on the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The main advantage of the tablet is Google support which means that it will be one of the first to receive the latest updates. Also this OS is well-known for its flexibility and good multimedia capabilities, such as playing a variety of audio and video formats.

The stability and smooth operation in iPad 4 running iOS 6 is out of competition. In addition, users have access to the App Store with more than 250 thousand high-quality apps, adapted to 10-inch screen device.

As you are interested you can compare iOS security vs Android and make your conclusions.

Speed

In the hardware comparison you can see that these tablets are completely different. Nexus 10 equipped with 2-core 1.7 GHz Exynos processor from Samsung, 2 GB of RAM and Mali T604 graphics core. This allows the tablet to run smoothly and quickly. iPad 4 is more powerful in this aspect thanks to 2-core A6X with 4-core graphics. There is only 1GB RAM in iPad 4 but it is enough for such iOS.

You can get Nexus 10 no higher than 32 GB of memory without the possibility of expansion. iPad 4 with its maximum 64 GB is the winner.

The Battery Life

Nexus 10 can not be compared to the battery life with the iPad 4. Apple tablet benefits from the higher battery capacity – 11,666 mAh vs 9000 mAh at Nexus 10.

Corpus

iPad 4 has a great corpus with a proprietary iPad design from Apple, which is not only pleasant to hold in their hands.

According to observers, Nexus 10, probably the only 10-inch tablet of all Android tablets which is easy to hold with one hand, thanks to Matt plastic, rounded edges and a balanced body. In this case, it is thinner than iPad 4 to 0.5 mm and lighter by 50 grams.

The Price

Nexus 10 is available only in two versions: 16GB for $ 399 and 32GB for $ 499. iPad 4 will be much more expensive: the minimum price for the most simple version with Wi-Fi starts at $ 499 and goes up to $ 830 for the most expensive. And that’s just in the U.S.

In addition to Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS, the Nexus 10 features a NFC chip, a microUSB port and microHDMI. The iPad 4 features only its proprietary Lightning connector which has not gained popularity yet. A GPS is only in models with 3G/LTE.

Conclusion

Nexus 10 looks a worthy contender for the iPad 4. His trump card in high resolution display, the presence of additional interfaces and, of course, more attractive price. You can see that iPad 4 vs Nexus 10 wins in this comparison, however, the other arguments, such as the matrix screen, corpus, personal preference – it is a matter of taste.
