AT&T recently revealed that they are planning to shut down their 2G wireless network by 2017. The majority of carriers including AT&T have been pushing their customers to make the switch to a 3G or 4G phone. AT&T stated that they did not expect any problems having customers transition to 3G or 4G, but with the switch comes the requirement of using a smartphone.
For some this may not be a problem, they will finally be able to experience the glory that comes with owning a smartphone. But for others, using a smartphone presents a problem. I know my grandmom still uses an old flip phone and could care less to about buying a smartphone. She said to learn how to use a smartphone, she needs to attend a special university. Is there no work around for this group of people? Only time will tell.
Just when you thought the unlocked Samsung Galaxy Nexus could go no lower, Google has defined all odds. Google has posted the unlocked Galaxy Nexus for $399 in the new section “Devices” in the Google Play Store. The 16GB contract free Galaxy Nexus only works on GSM networks (T-Mobile, AT&T).
Google is also throwing in a $10 credit for Google Wallet, the company’s mobile payment service. This deal is literally out of this world and we can imagine that many fans will be running to the Google Play Store to buy their unlocked Ice Cream Sandwich Galaxy Nexus.
