And It’s Official, Blackberry 9300 Curve 3G Coming September 8th

Well, chalk up another Blackberry on T-Mobile and while we can’t say we didn’t call this one, it’s always nice when T-Mobile officially announces the date.  The Blackberry 9300 doesn’t have any of the “wow” factors of, say, your typical Android phone but for Blackberry lovers (and there are Blackberry lovers still out there), the BB OS works just fine.  Though we have to say again we don’t understand why Blackberry is releasing … [read full article]

T-Mobile Looking To Step Up Android Push?

I have to admit I’m not sure if this page is new and I just happened to stumble onto it last night or if it’s old and I just happened to stumble onto it last night anyway. Either way, it looks as though T-Mobile is going on an Android offensive looking to showcase its Android diversity and strength, not to mention place as the original Android carrier in the US.  Head on over to [read full article]

More Goodies Found In Leaked T-Mobile G2 Build

Motorola Charm Video Reviews

Courtesy of Mobileburn This isn’t the first video review we’ve seen for the Motorola Charm and the general consensus is that T-Mobile and Motorola put together a sharp little phone with an average screen.  I think this safe to say that the introduction of this phone won’t detract from the attention the G2 will receive, but it might be a nice little introduction to the Android platform for T-Mobile customers. We’ll update this … [read full article]

October Will See The End Of The Touchpro2, Cliq, Cliq XT and myTouch 1.2

I’m sitting here trying to my best to write this up without wanting to just take Motorola to the ringer (again).  We just got word that on October 4th the TouchPro2, Cliq, Cliq XT and myTouch 1.2 will all be going end of life.  For those of you unfamiliar with the retail verbiage, end of life simply stated means they won’t be sold by T-Mobile after that point.  What’s incredibly … [read full article]
