Today HTC announced that the new HTC Merge smartphone will be made available through multiple North American carriers beginning in spring 2011. The HTC Merge will come with Android 2.2, a 3.8 inch screen, 5mp camera, and 720p video recording capabilities. This will be HTC’s first Android based CDMA world phone. Now HTC is saying multiple North American carriers will carry the device, there are only a couple CDMA carriers in North America. So you can almost guarantee that Sprint will be one of those carriers to get the device. We haven’t had an HTC world phone since the Touch Pro 2, so we are definitely due for one. Keep on the look out for more news to come on this.

How do you stay on top of the 4G wars being waged by cellphone providers these days? You make the service more reliable and increase it’s coverage. That is exactly what Sprint seems to be planning by the looks of a possible deal with LightSquared.
“Sprint said in December it would spend $4 billion to $5 billion on the three-to five-year project to combine the carrier’s disparate bands of spectrum onto a single type of base station. It has contracts with Alcatel-Lucent SA, Ericsson AB and Samsung Electronics Co. for the project.

A newly published JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) study shows that brain activity increases in the regions of the brain near the cellphone. This tells of the brain’s sensitivity to electromagnetic frequencies. Still unknown however, is whether this is a good thing or a bad thing. So yeah, now we know that the brain is excited but don’t know if this will cause disease or worse yet, cancer. Hopefully, this excitement makes us smarter as more of our brain is used.
People have wondered many things concerning this phenomenon for a few years now and we still do not have a definite answer for the question – will using my cellphone give me cancer? So, as an FYI, you may want to check out the study – be warned that you’ll need to be a subscriber OR you can click the link below for some additional info on this.

In a world where long distance communication is no longer confined to the mail or wired telephones, the government now seeks to find ways to wiretap the internet’s ability to link people through programs like Skype or Yahoo! Messenger.
“Federal law already requires tech companies to cooperate with court-ordered surveillance. The problem, says FBI general counsel Valerie Caproni, is that the companies offering services like Web-based e-mail or social networking sometimes can’t cooperate.
‘What we’re finding — and it’s not universally the case, across the board — but what we’re seeing is they do not have intercept solutions available for all of the types of services that they’re offering for people to use to communicate,’ she says.”
