Motorola W450 coming to T-mobile

Don’t everyone get excited about this phone at once! Wait a second…does anyone even care? Well we just bring you the news, and todays news (Besides that 3G thing nobody cares about) is that the Motorola W450 (AKA Salina) is headed to T-mobile. Scheduled to come out near the beginning of August, the W450 really doesn’t offer anything groundbreaking, earth-shattering, or new.

T-mobile and Sony Ericsson kick it off right

After their long “break,” which they spent seeing other wireless providers, T-mobile and Sony Ericsson have finally rekindled their oh-so-hot relationship. Anyone know what this means? No, not quite romantic candles in all of T-mobile’s corporate stores. But we have the second best thing. The Sony Ericsson Bella will launch on T-mobile’s network on July 12th. Woah, a Saturday? The Curve was launched on a Saturday, but if you remember correctly, that was a fairly messy launch. … [read full article]

FlexPay Update and more!
