Viettel launches 4G service for Apple iPhones Chi Thinh By Chi Thinh - The Saigon Times Daily HCMC - Users of Apple iPhones and iPads can now subscribe to the 4G LTE service of military-run telecom firm Viettel in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province. Viettel said last week that it had become the first mobile carrier in Vietnam to be allowed by Apple to provide 4G service for iPhone 5 smartphones, iPad 4 tablets and other products of Apple. Earlier, 4G LTE could not be used for Apple products in the trial period of the service in the southern province but be available for devices running on the Android operating system. Viettel explained its 4G service in Vietnam was not supported by Apple at that time and this was why it had to implement a pilot plan for the new service over a period. Viettel said it would offer free SIM cards for customers who want to get hands-on experience in the high-speed mobile Internet service in Ba Ria-Vung Tau, the first province in Vietnam where Viettel's 4G … [Read more...] about Viettel launches 4G service for Apple iPhones
Update iphone 4 to ios 9
Android phones typically offer either dull specs and an affordable price, or high-performance components and a price tag suitable only for oil barons. With the Nexus 4, Google and LG have smashed that tradition to pieces. It packs in a ferocious quad-core processor, a whopping 2GB of RAM, a glorious 4.7-inch display and the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean software, which boasts some really cool new features. With a starting price of only £239, it's just half the price of its technical rivals. £239 will snag you the 8GB model, while the 16GB model will cost you £279. Both are currently out of stock however, and have been nearly the entire time they've been on sale. There's no word from Google or LG on when we can expect more stock, but with rumours of its sequel already milling about, it's possible that LG aren't rushing to churn out devices.

The iPhone 5 is the iPhone we've wanted since 2010, adding long-overdue upgrades like a larger screen and faster 4G LTE in a razor-sharp new design. The good: The iPhone 5 adds everything we wanted in the iPhone 4S: 4G LTE, a longer, larger screen, free turn-by-turn navigation, and a faster A6 processor. Plus, its top-to-bottom redesign is sharp, slim, and feather-light. The bad: Apple Maps feels unfinished and buggy; Sprint and Verizon models can't use voice and data simultaneously. The smaller connector renders current accessories unusable without an adapter. There's no NFC, and the screen size pales in comparison to jumbo Android models. The bottom line: The iPhone 5 completely rebuilds the iPhone on a framework of new features and design, addressing its major previous shortcomings. It's absolutely the best iPhone to date, and it easily secures its place in the top tier of the smartphone universe. I've had the chance to use the iPhone 5 for nearly a week, and have been using … [Read more...] about iPhone 5 full review: Finally, the iPhone we’ve always wanted
