Ting, the small and very cheap prepaid carrier, is now opening up its GSM network for beta testing. Ting announced last year that they would be launching a GSM network and now it is coming to fruition. Previously, the GSM network testing was invite-only, so it’s nice to see the beta opening up.

We’ve...

The Verizon Ellipsis 7 tablet has been receiving minor updates over the course of the months, but the carrier took everybody by surprise when it rolled out the Android 4.4 KitKat update to this budget tablet a couple of weeks ago. While it was a very good gesture from Verizon to roll out the update for its budget tablet, user reports suggest that it wasn’t without its own issues. Most users are reportedly seeing boot loops with the Ellipsis 7 after the update was installed by the users. This can be particularly annoying for the...

Sprint has now joined the action by posting a teaser of its own which is pretty much the same as the teasers from the other two carriers, but with a yellow hue showing on the display instead of the magenta on T-Mobile and blue on the AT&T teaser.
