Sony exec: 'We will never ever sell or exit' from mobile biz

AT&T knocks down T-Mobile's arguments against its 700 MHz deal with Appalachian Wireless

Samsung expects Q2 profit to fall, possibly due to misjudging Galaxy S6 Edge demand

Samsung Electronics said it expects operating profit to drop in the second quarter, which would represent the seventh consecutive quarter of year-over-year declines in profit. The world's largest smartphone maker by volume likely underestimated how strong demand would be for its Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone, analysts said. Although Samsung has taken steps to shore up supply of the phone, it appears to have been too late to improve the company's second-quarter figures.

T-Mobile US is not giving up on its quest to get the FCC to expand the amount of spectrum set aside for smaller carriers to bid on in next year's incentive auction of 600 MHz broadcast TV spectrum. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has indicated he will vote to reject T-Mobile's petition on the matter, but the carrier continues to lobby the agency ahead of its July 16 vote on the auction rules.
