    T-Mobile says the keys to the “wireless data revolution” are affordable phones and tablets. NO ITS NOT TABLETS!!!

    • hi!

      exactly, tabs are a fad plan and simple. If it wasn’t for the iPad none of these would be coming out. Now companies have to keep trying to one up each other over nothing and people are caught up in the numbers game. There are no uses for tablets. Please concentrate on the future (which is obviously phones)

        i have no interest in tablets, i already have a desktop and a laptop. tmo need to step their game up. hell, even at&t came out blazing with their big guns.

        • hi!

          exactly, you nailed it. You, nor anyone has a use for a tablet. It’s a rich man’s toy. I wish TMobile would concentrate their efforts, time, money on the future (phones)

        • Anonymous

          instead tmo too busy trying to bash the iphone and at&t, by showing commercials of a flat chested, no ass, skinny slut. hell, even at&t step their game up this year, so far they showed 3 high end phone from htc, samsung, and moto. it’ll be a miracle if tmo announce top notch phones at mwc.

        OK. So researched it and I thought I knew what it was.

        Meego is the OS Intel and Nokia are working on for smartphones. Intel was working on Moblin and Nokia on Maemo. They decided to partnerup and came up with Meego.

    Any word on expansion of the 4G footprint into outlying areas? I’m in Maine and we barely have 3G.

    And that’s it…… 2 tablets…

    • whosaidwhat

      I am very disappointed since I waited for this week before renewing my contract.

      • Anonymous

        I hate to tell you but it may be worth the wait until MWC Feb 14th. You’d be pissed if you upgraded this month come to find out somethin bad@$$ drops in Feb.

        • whosaidwhat

          Problem is, I’ve been waiting for a very long time…banking on rumors that “this is coming”, “that is right around the corner”. I would have felt much better if they actually made some announcements. I recently upgraded my wife’s g1 because she was having all kinds of problem with it but I was waiting to see what they announced today before upgrading mine.

          Seeing how ATT (a company with crappy Android phones) came out of no where and announced arguably 3 of the best phones to hit the market, I thought T-Mobile would announced something too but all we got were two tablets.

          Oh well.

  • Steve

    Wow, no phones debuted. That’s a big fail for TMO at CES. The Nexus S is an Android Phone with no SD card that debuted AFTER Android was tweaked to allow apps to go onto SD card to save space. Now, we have to deal with the tablet wars, and still have sub-par Android phones. Way to drop the ball there, magenta.

  • Draken_i78

    So disappointed , nothing good happen here …………….. im speechless about this

    • hi!

      sweet mother of god….I couldn’t agree more…..awful awful awful. Verizon getting the Bionic, ATT announces their new MONSTER 4.5″ Android Mega-super phone.

      The writing USED to be on the walls….now they’ve come out with it SCREAMING…

      That message is, “we’re for families, idiots, poor people, etc. If you want cool devices, innovation, the future, go elsewhere. It couldn’t be more clear people, they said it themselves in black and white :(

  • Anonymous

    This was very anti climactic. AT&T really brought it with the devices they showed especially the Motorola Atrix, I was at least expecting T-mobile to announce the LG Optimus 2X so we could brag about something but…

    • whosaidwhat

      I’m afraid the Optimus 2X will turn into the motoroi (if I have the spelling right). They needed to announce something to keep the fans happy.

      • Anonymous

        I am at a loss for words as to why they chose to go this route and not bring out the big guns (if they even have any big guns)

        • hi!

          They obviously don’t have any big guns

    once again, another disappointment by tmo. the only phone they could muster was the fucking cliq2. if mwc in february turn out the same way im definitely leaving. cant wait for my contract to be over in august.

  • Droid

    Just “wow”. I can’t believe it. Nothing for T Mo but tablets and that POS Cliq 2. Amazing, While others will get Monster phones, we get the Cliq 2. Lol. Thank god I got the Nexus S. This will be enough til a Meego device comes out.

  • LurkR

    Guys calm down they still have another 23 devices to announce sheeze the event bearly started…….

  • SMH at TMO

    All I want/need to know is if TMO will have a phone that features

    *4+inch
    *Dualcore
    *Android 2.3
    *FFC

    Whithin the next 2 months, I don’t want to wait until march just for them to ANNOUNCE a that smartphone that we all want……..I know its been said plenty by know, but lable me one of many disappointed tmo customers

    Oh and verizon is lookin mighty tempting right about now, I’m in month 23 of my contract, I give TMO until MWC to impress me

    • hi!

      I can answer that for you easy. If you look deep into yourself, I’m sure you already have the answer as well….no

      They will not have that in the next 2 months. That’s a no brainer. I’m debating where I’ll head. What are you thinking? Verizon?

      • SMH at TMO

        Yep verizon would be my fallback option without question…..and the great thing about verizon is that there is multiple options to choose from

  • Crimeanarchy

    Meego Meego Meego!!!!!

  • Cdcolo

    I would like to see Tmo get the iPhone. I’m currently using an unlocked version and carry 5 other phones on my Tmo account. I’m waiting until Jan 11, ’11 to see if Tmo or Apple have any late Christmas News for me. If they don’t, I’ll be switching because I’ve waited too long for this. The question I don’t know is, will I switch to the EVO or will I switch to an iPhone carrier. The only thing I’m sure about is, I’m GONNA HAVE either an iPhone or an EVO and I guess my decision will be mainly made by Apple.
