Hot on the trail of Verizon and Sprint, AT&T has fired up their own BlackBerry Q10 page as well. While you can’t pre-order a device just yet, you can register for email updates to stay in the loop as we get closer to launch. If all goes as planned, AT&T users should be able to pick up a new Q10 in just a few weeks.
We assume that just like BlackBerry Z10, the Q10 will arrive on all of the major US carriers right around the same time. As of now all we know is that it will be in “early June” and, while that’s not very definitive, only gives prospective Q10 owners a few more weeks to hold out.

Aio Wireless, a prepaid subsidiary of AT&T, is launching with a nationwide “unlimited” voice and data service. (As is so often the case, that buzzword comes in quotes because speeds will be throttled once you meet your plan’s data cap.
The three plans range from $35 to $70 per month, and 4G downloads will reportedly top off at 4 Mbps. Customers can either choose from Aio’s modest selection of handsets — including the iPhone 5 and the Lumia 620 – or bring a compatible, unlocked device of their own. The service will kick off in Houston, Orlando and Tampa, with additional markets launching later this year. Head past the break for the full press info.
Aio Wireless™ Announces New Nationwide Voice and Data Service
No-annual-contract wireless provider kicks off new service with launch in first three markets
Alpharetta, GA – May 9, 2013 – Today Aio Wireless announced the launch of a new nationwide wireless service for consumers interested in a first-class wireless experience at a value price, without an annual contract. Aio provides new choices, seamless customer experience, and simplified service and offerings to value-conscious customers interested in an unlimited talk/text/data plan with no annual contract. Aio expects the service to roll out in multiple markets across the U.S. over the next year, with an initial launch today in select stores in Houston, Orlando and Tampa, and with additional stores in these three markets opening in the coming weeks. Store locations and information are available at http://www.aiowireless.com. Aio (pronounced “A-O”) is a brand name that encapsulates Aio’s brand promise: simply, delightfully, more.
“We talked with no-annual-contract customers and created our service around what they want. They want simple, easy plan choices with unlimited offers; first-class service at affordable prices; great devices; nationwide voice and data coverage; and no annual contracts. Today’s wireless customers don’t want to compromise,” said Jennifer Van Buskirk, president of Aio Wireless. “We are set up to win over value-conscious customers who are increasingly moving towards smartphones and mobile broadband.”
Aio makes prepaid wireless easy for customers with a friendly in-store and on-line experience, three simple rate plans to choose from, and an attractive portfolio of devices that include smartphones, tablets, and feature phones from a variety of manufacturers, including Samsung, Nokia, ZTE and others. Aio’s unlimited talk, text, and data rate plans range from $35 to $70 per month, with pricing varying by market, and will offer 4G download speeds of up to 4Mbs per second. Customers will also have the opportunity to bring a compatible, unlocked device for activation on the Aio network. Aio will delight customers with an attitude of gratitude, easy pre-payment options, and an involvement in the local communities in which we serve.
Aio Wireless is a subsidiary of AT&T Inc. AT&T does not expect this announcement to change AT&T’s January 2013 financial guidance.

We’ve already seen this one leaked and detailed – and reviewed the non-AT&T variant ourselves — but the carrier’s now finally gotten official with its latest high-end smartphone: the LG Optimus G Pro.
If this is the first you’re seeing of it, though, you’re looking at a phone with a 5.5-inch, 1920 x 1080 IPS display (which translates to 400ppi), along with a 13-megapixel camera (2.1 megapixel front-facing), LTE connectivity, a 3,140 mAh battery, 32GB of storage and Android 4.1.2 with some of LG’s customizations. As we noted in our review, that puts it up squarely against the Samsung Galaxy Note II, although LG’s decided to forego the stylus here. Look for this one to be available (exclusively on AT&T, incidentally) starting May 10th for $199.99 on the usual two-year contract. Continue reading
