Unfortunately, we’re not quite sure exactly where those locations are, but … [read full article]

Mysterious Samsung Actually the Galaxy S?

I’m just going to get this out of the way.  This is a rumor.  Now, I’m not one to follow what analysts say, but this one might be right (shocker!).  According to analyst Mark McKechnie, the Samsung Galaxy S could be seen on all major U.S. carriers this year.  Interestingly, he says that AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint will have it by June, with Verizon to follow later in the year.  It isn’t often that a powerful phone … [read full article]

Dell Mini 5 Coming to T-Mobile?

This is the year of the tablets, or at least the start of what may become the norm in personal computing (just go back and watch all those old sci-fi moviesor Avatar, and you’ll understand).  Dell is beefing up their tablet offering by adding as many carriers as possible to their tablet line.  Their Dell Mini 5, with Android, just passed the FCC with WCDMA Band IV, or AWS (just look at that arrow up there). … [read full article]

Let me tell you, the most frustrating thing in the world is trying to find the right charger when you need one.  Well, T-Mobile is planning on making it a little easier as phones begin to change.  In case you didn’t know, the CTIA wireless association decided that phone chargers should be standardized, probably because they were sick of finding the right charger too (plus standardization is awesome).  Starting today, April 19th, 522 T-Mobile stores will be … [read full article]

BlackBerry Devices Getting BlackBerry Messenger

In a case of better late that never, some of T-Mobile’s older BlackBerry devices will be receiving an update to install BlackBerry Messenger to their phones.  This update is for those running the 4.5 software and have either the Blackberry Pearl 8120, Curve 8320, Curve 8520 or Curve 8900.  Of course, if you already have BlackBerry Messenger, this doesn’t concern.  Keep a lookout and leave your thoughts in the comments!

New Samsung Android Phone Coming

Samsung-T959-T-Mobile-Galaxy-S

Well, well, what do we have here?  It looks like a new Samsung phone has received approval by the Bluetooth SIG.  See that “T” with three numbers after it, yeah, that means it is T-Mobile bound.  Now, the sheet is a bit misleading, stating that it is the T959 and then later the T939.  Either way, it should be an interesting Samsung phone.  Speculation has it that this is the Galaxy S, but since that passed the … [read full article]
