4G in Colombia

  • The government expects full coverage for June 2014
  • Is expected to exceed licensing revenue of $ 250 million
  • Companies provide extra benefits for the country

The process of granting licenses for the new generation of mobile communications in Colombia continues. The Colombian government has reported that it has received a total of six formal bids from companies interested in offering 4G services in Colombia and are already in the process of consideration of these bids to determine which companies will go to auction spectrum.

This spectrum auction will be held on June 26. The companies will bid in this final phase gain spectrum needed to offer 4G services in Colombia prior payment of the amount delivered at auction. The government expects to collect an amount in excess of $ 250 million to help stabilize the country's economy.

Companies are interested in offering 4G services in Colombia are:

  • Sure, a subsidiary of America Movil
  • A consortium of Bogotá Telecommunications Enterprise (ETB) and Tigo Millicom
  • Colombia Telecom, owned by Telefonica of Spain
  • Avantel
  • DirecTV
  • A Mexican consortium called Azteca 4G, led by Grupo Salinas

Mobile licenses are a very lucrative source of income for the various national governments. In this case, the companies to be awarded licenses to offer 4G in Colombia not only have to pay a significant amount of money. The winners agree to provide other benefits to the country as the donation of 500,000 tablets for the education sector and modernize the army communications to 4G technology.

The government forecasts pass provide 4G coverage to all cities and towns of the country by June next year, something too optimistic in my point of view but not impossible if the companies to be awarded licenses work as is due. If the expectations are met in 2014 Colombia will join the select group of countries that already have generation networks such as Paraguay , Chile and recently Spain .

  • It leaves us with the intrigue of the presentation of May 14 and the successor to the Lumia 920.
  • It is a minor Lumia 920 with flash, microphone and speaker.
  • It has come along with Instagram, as pointed rumors.

Nokia does not go through the best of times, and one of his saves would be the low end . But that's not saying to neglect high end, that's why in a few minutes the Nokia Lumia 928 is official, a timing surprise.

With an event within four days is strange to see how they present that becomes the successor of the Lumia 920 in a day with nothing special, apparently, although the device had already signaled clearly evident, with a teaser posted on its website, now is when Nokia reveals all specifications and availability among operators, among whom is currently only Verizon in the U.S., where it will arrive on May 16 to USD $ 99 with contract.

That's why, then, we suspect that although the Nokia Lumia 928 is official as of today, not the twist that need the Nokia Lumia 920, but we expect something bigger in the event of May 14, more than a Lumia 920 revamped with a speaker in a worse position and two additions, such as the improved microphone and Xenon flash.

Full features of the terminal are:

  • 4.5 inch display 1280x768 with ClearBlack and Gorilla Glass 2.
  • 2000mAh battery.
  • Processor Qualcomm dual core 1.5Ghz.
  • 8.7 megapixel rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics yf/2.0 with image stabilization and Xenon flash.
  • 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory.

Besides today is when the Nokia Lumia 928 is official, the possibility that come with this terminal Instagram is rather poor, but seeing how the true renewal of the Nokia Lumia 920 will come from the hand of another terminal on May 14 we might expect it to be with this new model that we do not know with whom comes the long awaited application.

Eventually the rumors were true and YouTube just launched a pilot test where some channels premiered a monthly subscription, which will have to pay to access the content. At the moment they are in test mode and the channels that are committed to this model are large enough media channels but it is an idea where is the future of payment for content.


Today YouTube finishes with "all free" on the internet and takes a step in a direction that it was quite expected by many. Gone are those who said that YouTube would not be profitable and to pay for web content video would not be possible. Today debuts this model that currently has few channels and where most of them are large companies. But the future of many "youtubers" can happen not only for the YouTube partner in charge of advertising where users see, but for this option you will be these same people who pay to see the content.

Of time the selection is limited and varies depending on the area. In Spain, for example, not all channels are available and prices range from € 1.49 per month for Comedy.TV to € 4.99 from UFC Select . Some also offer the option of an annual payment, a free trial for 14 days and assure us that we will have exclusive content. This gives us the option to see programs that until now could only be achieved through torrent and now we have a platform to view this content. Will we end up watching episodes of series on YouTube for a monthly fee?

Who knows but does not surprise me that the future happen around here. A point to consider is the price. If channel is not paid a lot of money but in terms of pay monthly disbursement few ups and more, so that in the future would be very grateful to have a flat fee. It is possible that as users increase, prices fall.

This model seems very successful and we take user-friendly platform with the fact that many have already set the credit card to buy Android apps. It is something that has many numbers to do well and would have to provide that anyone who believes the content is put online to be enjoyed smoothly and without delays.

Since the e-commerce giant Amazon decided to go for developing their own hardware are numerous rumors that the development of a proper smartphone . Today we find an important news about the future plans of the company and that they would be developing a 3D smartphone from Amazon.

Amazon This 3D smartphone would have nothing to do with anything previously rumored . It should have a screen with 3D technology without glasses that allow displaying images in three dimensions that would create the effect of floating above the device's screen a hologram style. Amazon 3D smartphone would also comprise eye-tracking technology that would allow some control of the device by following the movements of our eyes, in the style of Samsung Galaxy S4 .

In the past we have received different reports on a Amazon smartphone 4.7 inch would be ready in the second half of this year. These reports are not contradictory since Amazon would be developing both models with new devices at its research center in Cupertino. In this research center would be investigating, plus Amazon smartphones, other gadgets as an audio device, iPod style, but from the cloud.

Amazon's commitment to develop hardware in several different fields reinforces the feeling that this will be his future strategy for the coming years. It will be interesting to see the evolution of the development of products like Amazon 3D smartphone due to its particular philosophy of selling the hardware with little profit margin to compensate with increased sales at different stores music, books and apps. Its traditional devastating price together with a fairly comprehensive ecosystem built and makes it one of the most dangerous opponents for large sector.

In the field of telephony company surprised us late last year with the approval of the patent office of the United States of a curious airbag that will protect our mobile devices accidental drops.

Basically, the system would use a number of sensors such as gyroscopes, cameras, infrared or radar capable of detecting the movement, direction and distance of the object relative to another, to determine the fraction of a second, if the device is at risk of impact and automatically activate the airbag.

Undoubtedly, this type of patents shows that Amazon is thinking a lot about all kinds of mobile devices, not just Kindle Fire, but also smartphones or music players connected to the cloud for the near future.
