TRIAL: Vodafone Germany launches Cat 6 LTE-A Test Network in Dresden
Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:09 CET under 01 - General News

While Telefónica O2 Germany announced the fastest German LTE-A cell yesterday, Vodafone Germany went a step further by also announcing its LTE-Advanced trial in Dresden. However, unlike O2 Germany, which is only covering its own office building in Munich, Vodafone Germany said it's covering the whole area around the Technische Universität Dresden (University of Technology), where Vodafone operates a professorship for mobile communication. Like O2 in Munich and EE in London, Vodafone is partnering in Dresden with Huawei which delivered the technology and like the other two carriers, Vodafone is using carrier aggregation on the LTE 800 MHz and LTE 2600 MHz bands which are bundled to archive 225 Mbps.

BREAKTHROUGH: Telefónica O2 Germany launches the fastest LTE Radio Cell in Germany as well as VoLTE
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:26 CET under 01 - General News

While EE just launched a whole Cat 6 LTE network with 300 Mbps in London, Telefónica O2 Germany announced the launch of - well - Germany's fastest LTE radio cell at the Telefónica building in Munich. Speeds up to a data transmission rate of 225 Mbps are achieved. As Telefónica said in its press release, it achieved this enormous transmission rates because the base stations in question provide up to 150 Mbps in the 2.6-GHz band and up to 75 Mbps at 800 MHz. By combining these data streams, download speeds of up to 225 Mbps were reached. While the used new category 6 (Cat 6) LTE devices are yet not commercially available, Telefónica used prototypes from Huawei.

EXPLANATION: Samsung explains the Regional-Lock for its Lineup of Galaxy Android Smartphones
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:36 CET under 04 - Android News

Samsung's recently introduced "regional lock" for its latest range of Galaxy smartphones wasn't the electronic giant's brightest idea and it's clear why Samsung introduced it: To stop grey market imports and trading. As a matter of fact there are areas in the world, where you can get an imported Samsung smartphone cheaper then buying it from a local authorized dealer. Now, Samsung Germany (or better its attorneys - if you read the German original text) sent All About Samsung a statement in which it tried to explain why the regional lock was introduced (for sure Samsung only had the customer's experience in mind) and how to get rid of it - or not. In any case, Samsung made clear that the regional lock is here to stay.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:01 CET under 05 - Other Mobile OS News

As Jolla unveiled during today's Slush 13 conference in Helsinki, the company's first Sailfish OS-based smartphone (which has still no official name, as far as I know) will be first sold in DNA pop-up stores in Finland, starting November 27. Roughly one year ago, DNA and Jolla announced the first carrier partnership which included that DNA Store and other DNA sales channels will sell and market Jolla smartphones in Finland as soon as they enter the market. The upcoming Jolla smartphones use an open Sailfish operating system which is based on the well-known MeeGo operating system. DNA is a Finnish telecommunications company which proves a 3G network which reaches five million Finns and has more than 3 million mobile communications and fixed network customer contracts.

REGULATION: European EASA allows the use of Personal Electronic Devices on Board of Aircrafts
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:41 CET under 01 - General News

That was fast! Following North American's FAA decision to allow the gate to gate use of personal electronic devices, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) announced today that it will publish by the end of November 2013 guidance which will extend to all phases of flight the possibility to use personal electronic devices (PED) such as tablets, smartphones, e-readers and MP3 players as long as the devices are in "Flight Mode" or "Airplane Mode". Current EASA guidance allows the use of PED on aircraft, except during taxiing, take-off and landing. Bulky PED such as laptop computers will need to be stowed during taxiing, take-off and landing. The changes above will be applicable to aircraft operated by European airlines.
