TmoNews Video Hands On With the T-Mobile G2X

The T-Mobile G2X was easily the most impressive T-Mobile device I had an opportunity to spend time with during CTIA 2011. The combination of stock Android and the dual-core processor really impressed me and this may be the first Android phone I purchase. Although physical hardware didn’t wow me, the performance of the phone sure did and this is definitely going to be a winner for T-Mobile. Throw in the combination of possible AT&T … [read full article]

HD7 ‘NoDo’ Update Coming Soon?

As some of you may be aware, Microsoft has been promising this so called “NoDo” update for some time, and it still hasn’t been released to the masses.  It’s becoming a problem, much like that of Samsung’s Android update problems (I won’t even go there).  So find me a little bit irritated to not have this update on my phone and then catch wind of the update process, which doesn’t match what I was expecting. … [read full article]

LG Optimus 3D Coming to Magenta?

T-mobile is not letting this whole AT&T thing stop them.  Their announcements at CTIA have been rather exciting, I would say, but this may top them all.  Following the LG G2x and the LG G Slate, T-Mobile may be adding the LG Optimus 3D.  It may be just a rumor, but an AWS version of the LG Optimus 3D is real and was passed by the FCC.  Of note, AT&T … [read full article]

First Look At T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot By ZTE

Not to be forgotten in the smorgasbord of T-Mobile announcements early this morning was the introduction of T-Mobile’s first 4G Mobile Hotspot (Mifi) device.
