Samsung to Blaze 5G Wireless Trail by 2020

"This is mainly Samsung capturing the imagination," said telecommunications analyst Jeff Kagan. "While 5G will come next, it's still years away. We still have pockets of 2G, and 3G is everywhere. Now 4G is being installed to replace 3G, but we are still in the early years of this transformation."

May is National Stroke Awareness month. I like to follow the technology advancements for stroke prevention and treatment -- and the companies making them -- because I have been a stroke survivor for nine years. We don't realize it on a daily basis, but things advance as quickly in the medical and health industries as in wireless and communications. If I had my stroke today rather than nine years ago, there would be much more help at my fingertips...

Forgetting Today’s Users May Be BlackBerry’s Folly

BlackBerry, formerly Research In Motion, is under a lot of scrutiny as it pursues its comeback strategy. An interesting question recently came up having to do with that effort: Is BlackBerry so busy focusing on growth and the future that it has forgotten about taking care of customer needs in the present?

Wireless: Fertile Ground for Wheeling and Dealing

Thanks to countless conversations with reporters, I have developed a crystal clear idea of why Dish Network and SoftBank want to acquire Sprint Nextel. It has less to do with wireless carrier ambitions, and much more to do with the future -- being leaders in a new space that's still largely under the radar. ...

BlackBerry Z10: All Sizzle, No Steak

When the BlackBerry Z10 was first in my hands, I was prepared to write a glowing review of the new device and operating system. I like BlackBerry. I thought I was going to be able to write how it was a real competitor to the Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy. I was hoping to be able to say BlackBerry was back. Unfortunately, I can't -- not yet.
