T-Mobile Making Preparations To Bring Carly Back Into The Marketing Mix?

Whoa, could it be, might it be, will it happen? A new six-second vine short from everyone’s favorite T-Mobile marketing bombshell teases a return into the Magenta mix. That’s clearly the motorcycle outfit playing in the very last frames of the vine and a “stay tuned” from Carly herself. There’s even a #tmobile hashtag in the tweet which all but solidifies something is going to happen. It was back in March … [read full article]

The day has finally arrived, well not the release date itself but the day we can tell you the release dates for the upcoming Xperia Z and Lumia 925.

Apple Introduces A Completely Redesigned iOS 7 At Developer Conference

Any complaints about iOS being stale and in desparate need of a revamp got their wish today and in some ways, it’s truly Apple and something else entirely. First and foremost is the completley revamped design and I do mean everything…from the fonts, to the color schemes, to the icons themselves, it’s all very different. There’s no question this is a brand new iOS, for better or worse the moment you load this up on … [read full article]

HTC One, BlackBerry Q10 Launching Nationwide On Wednesday, June 5th

A bit of good news this morning as word just arrived that T-Mobile is planning to release the HTC One nationwide on June 5th. That’s very welcome news considering the original retail/branded launch took place in just 300 stores as HTC was sorely lacking global inventory. As HTC kicks up production it seems to already be filtering down as T-Mobile will bring the device to all of their retail and branded … [read full article]

Why Now Is A Great Time to Be a T-Mobile Customer

A few years ago, T-Mobile was borderline sick. The spectrum crunch was felt in full force by T-Mobile customers around the country. 1,500 milliseconds pings and dropped calls galore peeked their heads at every opportunity. T-Mobile’s smaller customer base accompanied by its use of non-standard frequencies for network operation made it nearly impossible for T-Mobile to garner flagship handsets, further compounding the  “greener pastures” appeal of competitors’ networks. To add insult to injury, T-Mobile had no roadmap … [read full article]

Galaxy S4 with Stock Android: Is This The Next Great Tech Superphone?

We had caught wind of a possible Nexus-like Galaxy S4 previously, but we were naturally a little skeptical because good old Sammy wants to capitalize on its products and craft the signature Samsung experience with its own customized skins and software implementations. I personally wished upon a star for it to be true, but had trouble believing it. Until, of course, Google made this dream device a reality yesterday at Google I/O. The Galaxy S4 with … [read full article]

T-Mobile To Be Exclusive US Carrier For Nokia Lumia 925 Windows Phone 8 Smartphone

I guess there was a good reason after all for T-Mobile to remove their current Windows Phone 8 lineup. At an early morning media event in London, Nokia announced the Lumia 925, a Lumia 920 successor of sorts with a “sleek, metal-finished design, new AMOLED display to make it possible to view content from more angles, and new features and advances in our PureView imaging technology for capturing clearer, … [read full article]
