Boost Infinite is finally here, and it offers unlimited data for just $25 per month

Boost Infinite – a new service from Dish Wireless – has been promising to shake up the US mobile network scene for a while, and it has now launched in beta form, so you can decide whether you want to sign up and see if it's the right plan for you.

Costing just $25 a month (plus variable fees and taxes), Boost Infinite offers unlimited talk, text, and data; and not only is that a low price, but Dish Wireless promises that it will stay at $25 forever if you sign up now at Boost Infinite's site.

The caveat to that is you need to maintain your Boost Infinite account and keep it in good standing. And that $25 price is only being offered for sign-ups through to the end of December – it’s not clear what the price will then change to for new customers.

This is also described as a “limited early access beta”, and in a tweet the network has specifically said “space is limited“, which suggests there are limits to how many people are able to sign up currently.

Still, for those who can get it this sounds like a bargain, and it’s open to customers who have their own device, those who purchase a new device, and those who finance one through Boost Infinite.

There is some small print – most notably that while this is a 5G plan, you’re only promised 5G speeds for the first 30GB of data used each month. After that, speeds may be throttled.

Still, 5G coverage should at least be good, as Boost Infinite users have access to not just Dish’s own 5G network, but also to those of T-Mobile and AT&T.

Boost Infinite is expected to exit beta in early 2023, and after that there will be no limit to the number of people who can access it. But whether the pricing will remain as attractive is unclear, so it might be worth signing up now if the plan appeals.

Analysis: how good value is Boost Infinite?

On paper, Boost Infinite looks to be extremely good value at $25 per month. Head to T-Mobile, for example, and you’ll be paying at least $60 per month for unlimited data – though you’ll get a heftier 50GB at 5G speeds for that money.

On Verizon you’re looking at $70, albeit with no data throttling, and on AT&T you’ll pay at least $65 for unlimited data – with the vague claim that speeds may drop when the network is busy.

However, these networks have some advantages over Boost Infinite too. Those prices are for customers taking one line, but if you take multiple lines there are typically discounts, which is something Boost Infinite doesn’t offer.

There are also multiple unlimited plans with different restrictions and extras – with Boost Infinite you just get the one option, which keeps things simple but won’t be the ideal fit for everyone. Still, if nothing else perhaps it will make the big networks take a look at their pricing.

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu

Google Announces Support for Account Passkeys

Google today announced that it is introducing support for passkeys, providing an easier and more secure login method for Google accounts. Apple integrated passkeys into iOS with the launch of iOS 16 , and it is also available in iPadOS 16.1 and later as well as macOS Ventura . Passkeys are an industry standard developed by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium, so Google's passkey integration will work on Apple devices as well as on other devices that support the feature. As Google notes: Last year — alongside FIDO Alliance, Apple and Microsoft — we announced we would begin work to support passkeys on our platform as an easier and more secure alternative to passwords. And today, ahead of World Password Day, we've begun rolling out support for passkeys across Google Accounts on all major platforms. They'll be an additional option that people can use to sign in, alongside passwords, 2-Step Verification (2SV), etc. Passkeys are both easier to use and more
