US based telecom service provider, AT&T has said that it is planning to acquire a 25 per cent stake in Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd that is controlled by Mukesh Ambani.
AT&T had revealed in a November 8 announcement that it would soon be extending Facetime over cellular to LTE-capable iPhones; but it appears that the carrier has adopted a more generous policy and has opened Facetime over cellular to more iPhone users than it had earlier suggested.
On Tuesday, 27-year-old New York man Andrew Auernheimer was convicted by a federal jury in Newark, New Jersey, in iPad data breach case, involving the hacking of AT&T servers and the pilfering of the personal data of over 120,000 iPad users.
According to the information shared by US Attorney Paul Fishman, Auernheimer was convicted of conspiracy as well as possession and transfer of the personal information of iPad users. Fishman also said that Auernheimer faces a maximum of ten-year prison sentence for both the counts.
In an indication that Apple's LTE-enabled iPad Mini and its fourth-generation iPad have hit some carrier stores, AT&T and Sprint said in a Friday announcement that they are now carrying both the devices.
Though Verizon has still to announce the availability of the two new Apple devices, it was being speculated that the carrier - as well as Apple Stores - will also start carrying both the tablets in its stores on Friday. The Verizon website already shows the devices available for immediate shipping.
In what apparently underscores a big moment for Microsoft, handsets running the company’s latest mobile Windows OS version – Windows Phone 8 – hit the retail channel on Friday; with AT&T having started selling Windows 8 smartphones in its stores, and Verizon having opened the pre-orders for Windows 8 handsets.

Bigwig US wireless carriers Verizon and AT&T revealed on Sunday that over 95 percent of their East Coast networks damaged due to Hurricane Sandy had become operational again.
Devastating storms like Hurricane Sandy can wreck havoc to cellphone networks, as is evident from the fact that, on Friday - four days of the hurricane -, leading US wireless carriers were still prolifically reconstructing their networks in the worst-hit areas.
In an attempt to provide some post-Hurricane Sandy assistance to the victims, bigwig US wireless carriers, AT&T and Verizon, have revealed in a recent announcement that they are deploying stations to help provide power and connectivity to people scrambling to Starbucks or banks for charging their devices or for accessing Wi-Fi signals.

In a recent statement, AT&T has disclosed that its spectrum compromise with Sirius XM Radio, for resolving the issues that arise because of the proximity of a few of their respective spectrum assets, has been approved unanimously by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
The AT&T-Sirius compromise plan was first put forth by the two companies in June this year; and essentially enables AT&T to use spectrum in the so-called Wireless Communication Services (WCS) band for furthering its LTE deployment.
In a Wednesday announcement, the Isis consortium - comprising three US wireless carriers, namely, AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and T-Mobile - said that the Isis mobile wallet network will be launched on Monday, October 22, in Salt Lake City and Austin, Texas.
The date of the launch of Isis mobile wallet network was confirmed by Jaymee Johnson - the marketing head of Isis - in an emailed statement. Johnson also revealed in the statement that the Isis network advantage will be exploited by 20 Isis-ready mobile handsets which will hit the markets by the end of the year.

In a move evidently aimed at grabbing a bigger portion of the $14 billion market for cloud services, computer services provider IBM and leading US wireless carrier AT&T have joined forces to offer a service, which will give the customers the accessibility to IBM's back-end infrastructure over AT&T's secure private lines.
In a recent official announcement, bigwig US wireless carrier AT&T revealed that it would be selling the LG Optimus G --- the first handset featuring the speedy new quad-core 1.5-GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor from Qualcomm.
Even though AT&T refrained from disclosing the exact date of availability of the LG's flagship superphone Optimus G, or its expected price, the announcement nonetheless makes AT&T the first US carrier to offer LG's new LTE-capable handset.
With the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) already having limits in place, since long, for the extent of airwaves a single company can control, small and medium-size telecom firms are now pushing the government to consider new limits in airwaves.
In the wake of the competition that the small telecom companies face from bigwigs like AT&T and Verizon, the government is apparently planning to set new regulations which will govern the amount of airwaves - or spectrum - which can be held by one carrier.
In what was yet another indication of AT&T's relentless and extensive efforts to raise public awareness on the problem of `texting while driving,' the top-notch carrier's CEO Randall Stephenson spoke out on the issue on Wednesday morning, at a New York conference which was attended by hundreds of leading investors, including Fortune 500 executives.
On Monday, AT&T unveiled an attractive `budget contender' among the currently-available array of 4G handsets --- the LG Escape, which will clearly be more appealing than the other 4G phones around because of the fact that it comes with a rather fetching price-tag of $50, with a two-year contract.
In a duel of sorts over network speeds in Connecticut, two leading cellular communications providers - AT&T and Verizon - are reportedly going all out to highlight the value of their high-speed 4G LTE networks and the importance of network speeds for the smartphone users in the state.
That the two bigwig cell carriers were fighting over their network speeds was evident in their last-week announcements, in which AT&T - taking the first shot - said on Thursday that it intends bringing 4G LTE to the Hartford-New Haven market by the end of 2012.
