T-Mobile is gaining more publicity but new customers are getting attracted by Verizon. If we go through the report from Verizon then it is mentioned that there are more than 1.6 million users get attracted by their wireless products and plans that they introduced in 4th quarter of last year.

Verizon Wireless

If we compare this achievement from Verizon with T-Mobile then it matches with T-Mobiles results in the same period of time. Verizon is extending their LTE network and according to them, they have covered about 97 % of US population. So this is one of the reasons for the figure that we get for Verizon. Customer satisfaction is main motive for Verizon which makes them to stand on this level. Recently they released Moto G handset for $100 off-contract and a new $20 “Share Everything” tier. It is not covered in this report. We get to see its effect on their next report. This figure clearly shows that Verizon has better future in 2014.

Here are some more findings about Verizon:

  • $1.76 in earnings per share (EPS)
  • 66 cents in adjusted EPS (non-GAAP)
  • 1.7 million retail net additions
  • 8.0 percent year-over-year increase in service revenues in 4Q 2013

There’s some guaranteeing news, assuming that you’ve been holding up for the leader Sony Xperia Z1 to land on T-Mobile USA, as leaked picture claims to show a T-Mobile US form. This infers that a discharge on the bearer may not be too far away. The Sony Xperia Z1 is a great Android cell phone, and only a couple of days back it got accessible on provincial bearer Cincinnati Bell, soon after any of the real US bearers.

The new leaked pictures absolutely indicate T-Mobile offers the Xperia Z1 within a brief period of time, in spite of the fact that there are a few parts of them that are a small amount of bewildering. The front and back of the Xperia Z1 marked with the T-Mobile logo is demonstrated, with a 4G symbol seen on the front plus the Android 4.2 Sony-modified client interface. On the other hand, there are a few varieties from the Xperia Z1 that we recently know.

Sony Xperia Z1 Black

Firstly the front-confronting Camera is on an alternate side of the Sony logo to the ordinary variant and besides the sound jack has changed position. And also MIC opening seems, by all accounts, to be demonstrated on the back. This may lead some to think this could be the quite supposed Xperia Z1s rather, however the Camera and jack positions don’t tie in with the released pictures of phone that have become visible as such. While this could well be the Xperia Z1 for T-Mobile US, we’ll hold over on our judgement at the minute and hold up to see what further confirm develops. You could make certain that we’ll give you more data as we hear it. Have you trusted that the Sony Xperia Z1 will come to T-Mobile US? Expecting the news is correct, we’re for the most part left pondering when the Z1 may achieve T-Mobile, and the extent to which it’ll cost. Gave us a chance to have your remarks on.
