(Updated) LG Optimus T Demo Arrives In Stores

The LG Optimus T doesn’t have the same word of mouth buzz as the myTouch HD/4G “whatever” does right now but or a middle of the road Android smartphone, it fits the bill perfectly. Expected to launch the first few weeks of November the first demo phones have started to arrive in stores, presumably without the Wi-Fi calling option we are all so eagerly anticipating. However, given that it’s almost a week and … [read full article]

myTouch HD Benchmarked on Video

It was bound to happen sooner or later, right?  Everyone’s favorite addition to the myTouch family has finally made a live appearance on video, showing off benchmark scores.  Now, I can’t make out the exact score, but I think the Quadrant score is somewhere around 1903.  Either way, that’s faster than a stock Nexus One on 2.2+.  In fact, the only higher scores that I have seen come from an overclocked G2, or really … [read full article]

Preview The myTouch HD/myTouch 4G Whatever It Will Be Called Colors, Pick Your Favorite

So while we’re busy playing the name game with the myTouch HD/myTouch4G we wanted to let you know you can have the phone in any color you want, so long as it’s white, black, red or plum. Personally, I dig the white, as I just love the clean lines that come from a white device. Of course, if you think I’m totally weird for liking a white phone than you can take … [read full article]

“myTouch HD” Hotspot Instructions Leak Out, Accessories Arrive With “myTouch HD” Name

Well well what have we here…this looks like instructions on how to use the built in Hotspot function of the myTouch HD (notice the name there, NOT myTouch4G). Let’s hold off on the Hotspot feature here for a moment and say that we’ve received word that due to what I am guessing and let me emphasize this is simply my own personal theory that T-Mobile has opted away from the myTouch4G name … [read full article]

First Look At T-Mobile TV

(Updated, Not For US, Sad Face) Samsung Promises Froyo For Galaxy S Series Before “End Of November”

Update: As it turns out, this was indeed meant for the UK only, as it stands Engadget and I both read it as possible for a global rollout. I apologize for any misunderstanding but calling people (mainly me) in the comments for misunderstanding the post just isn’t right. Samsung has come clean regarding the Android 2.2 update, which will grace “all operator versions” before the end of November. I know the update promises Samsung … [read full article]

T-Mobile Data Plans Revamping November 3rd

To be honest, I’m still trying to make sense of these images we received but as expected, T-Mobile is preparing a revamp of their data plans beginning November 3rd.

That’s in there as well as a little bit of data plan overage talk which leads back to the whole, “what happens after 5GB of transferred data” question? T-Mobile handsets will … [read full article]
