We have some good news and we have some bad news. The good news is the iPhone 5 is officially supported on T-Mobile and Apple will create a new modified version of the iPhone 5 to support the 1700 AWS band that T-Mobile uses. This band is what T-Mobile uses for their HSPA+ 42.
So if you already have an officially unlocked iPhone model A1428 or the AT&T version, you will be able to access the 1900 band in certain areas where T-Mobile is refarming. This band only uses HSPA+ 21, so your speeds will be a bit slower. However the old model and the new revised model will both support the same band for LTE.
To recap, if you have the old version of the iPhone 5 you will not be able to take advantage of the highest speeds on the HSPA+ network, but you will still be able to use LTE which is even faster when T-Mobile flips the switch in your town.

Today, T-Mobile held a press conference called the “Uncarrier” event in New York City and announced that they will offer the iPhone on their network now. You can purchase the iPhone 5 directly from T-Mobile starting April 12th. It will cost just $99 and then you pay $20 monthly for 24 months. You also have the option to purchase it outright at full price. T-Mobile is the only carrier to offer the iPhone with no contract, unlimited data, and a low upfront price. If you compare this to AT&T you will save $1000.
T-Mobile has supported unlocked iPhone’s on their network from the beginning, but has made major improvements to it’s network to offer all of the features. Previously you were limited to 2G data speeds and now you are able to receive 3G/4G data speeds in lots of areas. Not only has T-Mobile been refarming their network to support the iPhone but they have also been expanding it to support 4G LTE.
T-Mobile announced that they are moving very rapidly toward LTE. It will be in 90% of top 25 markets covering 200 million people covered by the end of the year with 100 million covered by midyear. Today, T-Mobile launched its state-of-the-art 4G LTE network in seven major metropolitan areas, including Baltimore; Houston; Kansas City; Las Vegas; Phoenix; San Jose, Calif.; and Washington, D.C.
Another neat feature that T-Mobile offers for the iPhone 5 is that they will be the only carrier with HD Voice on the iPhone 5 and if you are looking to save even more money, T-Mobile will offer the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S as well.
T-Mobile is the last of the major carriers to get the rights to the iPhone and finally the wait is over. Now we just need them to continue to improve their network!

Sparking Apps has created a ton of great apps that we have already reviewed. Today we got to check out their newest app called Talking Goggles – a camera with speech. The technology in this app just blows my mind. Just snap a picture and this app will tell you exactly what it is and get you as much information on it as possible.
Talking Goggles is good with recognizing logos, books and (famous) faces. It can also recognize and translate foreign texts, but that is a lot more tricky. When it recognizes a product, you will get a price comparison for that product when you click on the description.
When you first launch the app you will notice a very familiar setup. Just press the camera button to take a picture, the video button for video, the flag for languages, and the lightning bolt for flash. Snap a picture and Talking Goggles will instantly tell you what it is or it with display the message: “No close image matches found.”
When you switch to video mode you can constantly record a video and when it recognizes something within the video it will give you information right on the screen.
Not only will Talking Goggles help you identify information just by a picture or video, but it can be a handy app to carry around while shopping. Just take a picture and let Talking Goggles find the cheapest price for you.
Talking Goggles – a camera with speech is a steal at just $0.99 on the Apple App Store. This app could easily sell for $2.99 or even $4.99. I am just amazed that software can analyze a picture or video within a matter of seconds and get it correct. Go Check it out! You will not be disappointed.

I was lucky enough to get a pre-production model of the NuCharge iPhone 5 case, and I can tell you this is the best case I have ever seen and used for the iPhone that has a built-in battery. Most of the battery cases for the iPhone that have a built-in battery you have to leave the bulk on even when you do not need the extra power. NuCharge features an interchangeable battery pack that can quickly be snapped out at anytime.
If you are on your iPhone all day long and do not have access to a charger, the NuCharge is perfect for you. You can purchase additional battery packs and instantly swap them out, or you can just use the included battery and charge it at your convenience.
Like other iPhone battery cases the NuCharge also has LED indicators on the side showing you how much extra battery you have available. However unlike other iPhone battery cases, NuCharge allows you to remove the battery and replace it with a ton of different covers.
The NuCharge comes with a clear or tinted base case, white or black battery pack, a micro USB charger, & Pantone-colored case covers in either aluminum or leather finishes. You get one included in the package but you can purchase extra aluminum or leather covers to quickly change up the style. Also in the final product they will include a microfiber cloth, however, it was not included in the pre-production model that I reviewed.
NuCharge does not obstruct access to the microphone or speaker. It will also not hinder the camera flash like some cases will. The Lightning port is also unobstructed and the rechargeable battery has a very sturdy Lightning cable attached that is actually one of the first to be Authorized by Apple!
There were just a few issues that I had with the NuCharge, but talking to the developers it seems like most of the concerns have been fixed for the final production. For example, the Kickstand is plastic on the pre-production model, but they have decided to upgrade that to a super strong aluminum kickstand. I also had an issues with the Ghost Armor clear protection that I was using. The case fit was super tight to save space and keep it slim but that cause my protective shield to peel on the sides. It is not a big deal because the NuCharge protects your sides from scratches.
Overall NuCharge is an excellent buy for anyone needing some extra battery power. It is slim, lightweight, and is designed to fit easily into pockets. The Kickstarter campaign ends in 12 days, so if you are interested in getting one of the first models and save some money on the same time, head over to their Kickstarter page and purchase one. They are expected to ship in early April.
