Verizon is ready to keep you well-connected at the Coachella festival. Meanwhile, HTC, Samsung and Google are ready to bring you their latest products.
Verizon keeping you connected at Coachella with 3 COLTs
The Coachella Music and Arts Festival has taken off, and we all know there will be an onslaught of photos, videos and status updates coming from mobile smartphones all over the valley. As it goes with these large festivals, though, you can be sure services will slow down. I mean, hundreds of thousands of attendees are expected, and they would all be packed within a specific area.
Verizon is not letting you struggle to post that Instagram image, though. Not only are they constantly improving their towers at Coachella, but they are boosting their network in the area for these couple weekends by bringing three COLTs. This stands for Cells On Light Trucks.
These trucks are equipped with everything Verizon needs to bring the company’s XLTE technology, as well as doubling the capacity of their current LTE network. Big Red claims they will be able to double last year’s capacity, which could support 65 million connections.
Opinion: I really wanted to go to Coachella this year. At least those of you who do go will be able to stay connected and brag about being there! Unless you don’t have Verizon.
HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6 launch in the USA!
You probably don’t need a reminder, but we wanted to nake sure you kept in mind that today is the day when some of the best devices of 2015 launch. Of course, we are talking about the Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and HTC One M9.
These are available from every major carrier, so make sure to check them out if you are in need of an upgrade. You can also check out our reviews on the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6. Who is signing up?
Opinion: The HTC One M9 is still my favorite, but Samsung did something amazing with its latest flagship smartphones. Sammy really hit the ball out of the park here.
The new Chromebook Pixel is an awesome laptop. It may be priced a bit too high and limited by its software, but there is really no better Chromebook around. The sad part is that it wasn’t initially launched everywhere, something that is to change very soon.
This high-end Chrome OS laptop will become available in the UK starting April 21st from electronics retailer Dixons. The price? £799 for the i5 version and £999 for the i7 iteration.
Opinion: Are any of you signing up for this one? I have used the Pixel and can say it’s an awesome computer, but at that price you can get a Windows or Mac OS X laptop that will have much more support and functionality.
