More T-Mobile Handset Price Changes

With a plethora of new 4G devices launching this year, it looks like T-Mobile is trying to get rid of the old ones, and the best way to do that is lower prices! Just a few days ago, T-Mobile had reduced the 2-year contract pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Tab and now they’ve decided to lower the retail price as well. Beginning February 1st, the Samsung Galaxy Tab non-contract price will decrease from $499.99 to $449.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate.

Also on February 1st, T-Mobile will be reducing the pricing on the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and more recent, Bold 9780 from $199.99 with a 2-year agreement to $99.99 with a 2-year agreement after a $100 mail-in-rebate.

Lastly, the Nokia E73 will also receive a price reduction February 1st. It will be available for the best price of all, FREE (with a 2-year agreement)!

Anyone going to take advantage of these price changes? Let us know in the comments!

    phone ought to be free with contract

    • TMOFOSHO

      any why should it be free?

      • TMOFOSHO

        just like this commercial says

    • Blabla

      he’s probably more than likely one of those guys that call into customer care all the time and says he’s a “loyal customer” so he should get phones free or for a super cheap price. Maybe when they start offering 4 year contracts then you can get the phone for free. I’m sure you’ll love keeping the phone for that long.

    Who cares. What is going on with the LG Optimus 2x? What new phones does T Mobile have coming in Feb to match the Atrix on AT&T?

    I think I have to wait a few days later to get Galaxy Tab (no contract).
    $150 off compared to original price, not bad.

    The Tab will be free on contract within 3 months. And even then who will want it.

      Although Samsung sold 1 millions Tabs last year, not bad for just a few months, I suspect that was because there were few tablet offerings on the market, at least on the high-end quality units.

      But sales will tank this year because all the offerings by other manufacturers will hit the market.

      Moreover, I simply don’t see a huge market for what I call an “in-between” device. People have netbooks, notebooks, and smartphones. The tablet really does not fit in to one’s computer needs.

      Maybe tablets will diminish the netbook market and netbooks will become the less common device.

      For sure, a tablet with a keyboard dock is probably more desirable than even a netbook, at least in terms of portability when one wants it and then functionality, such as word processing, when the term paper is due, so to speak.

      Personally, my next “netbook” will be the Augen Doppio. It has excellent specs (HDMI out, USB port, microSD slot, etc.) and you can connect it to what I call a “netbook dock.” The netbook dock has a 160GB hard disk, network port, USB ports, audio and mic jacks, etc.

      Best of all, it’s $569 retail but will be about $450 street price and not require a data plan since it is not a carrier-supported device.

      It uses WiFi or can connect with the network port. IMHO that’s far better than paying for a mandatory data plan where the only benefit it getting 3G or 4G a few times a month.

      Check em out here. IMHO this is what has Samsung and Apple concerned. Make sure to pause the video when the camera pans on to the spec cards.

      The “Dolce” tablet will go for about $300 street price. Why anyone would pay $1800 (Tab and required data plan) instead of $300 for a better spec machine is beyond me.

      Oh, and it also didn’t, and won’t, help the Tab when Google went public with the comment that Android 2.2 is not a good OS for tablets.

      • Anonymous

        That’s about the only control over Android Google has taken when they said its not made for tablets. Im glad they said it otherwise there may be more not worth buying tablets out by now. Come on Honeycomb!

    Another video of the Augen Doppio, that IMHO may become the standard.

  • android fan

    Free doesn’t make me want the tab. If you design a solid responsive tablet, then maybe it would be worth bringing home. If I wanted a android tablet, I would just go to Kmart and buy a wifi only model for a lot cheaper than the tab.

      Yes, you are correct.

  • JM

    These are all devices that aren’t selling as well as they might have hoped.

  • HeLLkAt31

    no… I will not take part on any of these devices the prices are still to high, plus the devices are old skool now…

    • http://twitter.com/mlococo Michael Lococo

      If $200 is too high than I would say that you shouldn’t be worrying about old school.

      why do you care? do you work for tmobile? And even if you did…why the hell do you still care? More than likely the people that take these photos probably work in retail since it’s a lot more difficult to do it in the call center unless the coach totally does not care that you’re whipping out your phone during stread time and taking shots.

    with a plethora of new low end mediocre devices launching this year, it looks like T-Mobile is trying to get rid of the old ones, and the best way to do that is lower prices!

    Is the E73 even available for purchase anymore?
    I received one in a multiple-phone exchange for my 9700 and I had horrible coverage problems so it was returned.
