Nokia CEO Says The T-Mobile Lumia 710 Is “Exceeding Expectations”

Let’s just be frank and say we honestly have no idea how Nokia’s CEO is quantifying “exceeding expectations” since we don’t have any idea what the expectations were for the Lumia 710. However, speaking at Mobile World Congress, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop was reportedly enthusiastic about the Lumia 710 and it current sales numbers. Unfortunately, he wouldn’t give up any specific market numbers, but it seems Nokia has a small hit on … [read full article]

Editorial: I Still Think Throttling Data Sucks, There I said It

I’ve long thought T-Mobile’s loose definition of “unlimited data” has needed to change and now, with AT&T at the center of a throttling data news cycle, “unlimited” is once again called into question. In fact, one AT&T user successfully sued AT&T in small claims court winning $850 after the judge agreed AT&T had sold the customer an unlimited plan and then purposely slowed him down. AT&T has justified throttling by claiming it … [read full article]

(Updated)T-Mobile Confirms LTE Rollout Top On Agenda Over HSPA+ 84, IMS Is The Future

  Update: There appears to be some confusion about the language in this article regarding the 1900MHz refarming.

LTE is going to be deployed on the 1700 band for T-Mobile.  In a confirmation of intel we received late last week, T-Mobile … [read full article]
