In January, Verizon also introduced MiFi capability for a new handset, the Palm Pixi Plus. The smartphone sells for $99 after a $100 rebate and two-year contract. Verizon allows subscribers to add MiFi capability for $40 a month. Verizon's MiFi products are gaining some traction, but they are not widely popular. And based on Palm's recent quarterly earnings, none of the Palm handsets are selling well, including the Palm Pixi Plus with its MiFi capabilities. Roger Entner, a senior vice president at Nielsen Company, said there could be several reasons why consumers haven't flocked to these products. One reason, could be that many consumers don't even know about them. MiFi is still relatively new to the market and the products have not been marketed heavily. Another reason crowds of customers aren't signing up could be cost. For consumers already subscribing to $30 a month data plans for their smartphones, tacking on another $40 to $60 a month is significant.

I stumbled upon the free AirBattery app in the Play Store a couple of days ago. After installing the app, open the lid on your AirPods' charging case and a popup -- similar to the one you get on iPhone -- will show up on your Android device. Battery stats for the case and each AirPod will be displayed. Tap on the Settings cog (gear icon) to make a donation and unlock the Pro version, which removes ads and lets you customize the refresh frequency and amount of time between refreshes. There are a couple caveats as to how battery life is reported -- primarily that an AirPod will need to be in the charging case in order for the case's battery life to be displayed.
