Karma will add Sprint LTE to service, expanding coverage to 230 cities

Pay-as-you-go mobile Wi-Fi hotspot provider Karma is adding 4G LTE connectivity to its service. Using the Sprint 4G LTE network, customers will be able to use the shareable hotspot in more than 230 US cities once it is launched in the first half of 2014, expanding from its existing WiMAX-based coverage of 80 cities. Though the current hotspot will not be compatible with LTE network, Karma will be offering "steep discounts" on the replacement LTE device when it ships.

United Airlines allows device use at takeoff, landing

United Airlines has revealed itself to be the latest to adhere to the FAA's new recommendations for using electronic devices at takeoff and landing, following JetBlue, Delta, and American Airlines. Though the airline will only be allowing passengers on mainline flights to use smartphones and tablets throughout the flight, it is working with regional partners to extend the change to all United Express flights by the end of this year.
