Yesterday the FCC approved the merger between TMO and Metro PCS. The new $1.5 billion deal will see T-Mobile take over Metro’s 9 million subscribers, which will boost TMO’s subscribers also. TMO tried acquiring Metro back in October but it was’nt made official until yesterday. The merger might have helped TMO acquire the iPhone something they have lacked over the year since all the other major carriers currently have the iPhone in their line up. TMO carried the iPhone in an unofficial capacity, were users would have 2g service. Currently the carrier is also working on switching to LTE which could also help them get more subscribers. After the break check out their press release about the merger.
We hit the first bump in the road with Samsung’s Galaxy SIV. Now the word is The US will not get the eye tracking technology and will not have a 8 core processor. According to Bloomberg “the Galaxy S IV will not include the feature at launch, although it may appear in “future versions of the phone.” Samsung will instead use a simpler head-tracking technology that will have the ability to pause videos when a user turns away from the screen” Does this mean the GS IV will be a disappointment in the US, probably since all the details have’nt been released and Samsung could have more tricks up their sleeve.

More bad news is coming Apples way, the Samsung GS IV is the mobile device Apple is probably afraid of. Now its seems Android Tablets are going to outsell iPads in 2013. According to the IDC projects that Android will take a 48.8% share of the tablet market in 2013, a big jump from last year. The jump in sales according to IDC for Android Tablets, PRICE. I guess people dont want to shell out big bucks for Tablets. Devices like the Galaxy Note 8.0, the Nexus 7 and the Kindle Fire HD have helped Google push the Android OS. Does Apple have to change things fast?“One in every two tablets shipped this quarter was below 8 inches in screen size,” says IDC analyst Jitesh Ubrani. “Vendors are moving quickly to compete in this space as consumers realize that these small devices are often more ideal than large tablets for their daily consumption habits.”
