It’s clunky, it’s slow and you would not want to use it in real life but the fact that the talented folks at XDA-Developers have an Ice Cream Sandwich port up and running on a three year old T-Mobile G1 shows a lot of promise. It’s performance is powered by an archaically sounding 528MHz single-core processor, however this shows that other old-school Android smartphones might also get a taste of Ice Cream … [read full article]

HTC Radar 4G, A TmoNews Review

It’s review time again, and this time I got my hands on some new hardware.  Now, it doesn’t have Android (OH NO!) so it may not be on many of your lists, but it really should be considered.  T-Mobile made the mistake of sending me a Radar 4G to play with and I may, just may, keep it (I’m totally kidding T-Mobile, seriously).  Read on and see how it stacks up! Software I’ve … [read full article]

T-Mobile’s Product Managers Show Off The White Samsung Galaxy S II

T-Mobile just announced the white Samsung Galaxy S II coming to store shelves sometime during the holiday season and they’ve already got a hands-on courtesy of Desmond, T-Mobile’s famous product manager. I’m totally enamored by the “snow white” finish, mostly because black is so standardized for smartphones and it always shows fingerprints. It’s a brief but good look at the white model so check it out. YouTube

T-Mobile Says Wi-Fi Calling On Galaxy S II, HTC Amaze 4G Still Priority, Coming Soon

While the hope of a November 13th release for Wi-Fi calling capability on the Galaxy S II and HTC Amaze 4G has come and gone, T-Mobile is still working to push the update out. Unfortunately, the November 13th update was “incorrectly communicated” and now T-Mobile says the update is a “top priority and should be available in the near future.” Sounds good, but we all know that the “near future” … [read full article]

T-Mobile Offers Promotion On New myTouch by LG Smartphones For Existing Customers

T-Mobile’s newest promotion is a kinda, sorta response to the iPhone but more importantly, it’s available for their existing customers. Too often T-Mobile’s promotions are only available to new customers so we’re happy (actually we’re thrilled) to see something that takes care of the T-Mobile faithful. The myTouch by LG models won’t satisfy the urges of the Galaxy S II crowd but they are still very good mid-range Android devices and … [read full article]

T-Mobile Springboard Tablets Begin To Arrive In T-Mobile Stores Ahead Of Launch

By now I feel like we know the T-Mobile Springboard inside and out, having seen some hands-on video, read a meta-review and a few dozen pictures of it in action. We do love posting images of the retail shipping box in all of its glory however, so we’re back with another “look” at the T-Mobile Springboard. We aren’t learning much here, actually we aren’t learning anything other than taking another … [read full article]

Some T-Mobile Galaxy S II Models Suffering From Poor Screen Calibration?

The T-Mobile version of the Galaxy S II has already solidified itself as one of the best smartphones ever to grace the Magenta network and our review of it was glowing. Unfortunately, there seems to be, at least for some users on XDA Developer Forums a bit of an issue with the Super AMOLED Plus display. The XDA thread takes an in-depth look at the panels on both the T-Mobile and … [read full article]
