Clearwire CEO Opposes AT&T And T-Mobile Deal

Chalk up another wireless CEO upset at the prospect of AT&T and T-Mobile coming together in holy matrimony. Clearwire’s interim CEO John Stanton (a former CEO of T-Mobile USA) expresses a high level of concern with the possible deal.

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]

AT&T Says T-Mobile Deal Necessary For Spectrum Needs

The AT&T T-Mobile deal stories just keep on coming with this report from CNN stating that AT&T needed T-Mobile for spectrum needs or face their own growth problems. Speaking in Orlando AT&T Mobility CEO Ralph de la Vega stated that AT&T would face significant challenges “in the short term,” without purchasing T-Mobile. No time frame was given as to when AT&T might face a crisis of spectrum shortage but acknowledged that AT&T had to make a … [read full article]

Sprint To Oppose AT&T And T-Mobile Merger

It was a sight to see with Sprint and AT&T sitting at the CEO roundtable discussion early yesterday morning at CTIA 2011. Can anyone guess what some of the conversation was about? Well, perhaps the good news (depending on how you view the deal with AT&T) for some T-Mobile faithful is that Sprint seems prepared to fight the proposed merger with the belief it will hurt the consumer through increased pricing and … [read full article]

TmoNews Goes Hands On With The T-Mobile G2X

With the official T-Mobile G2X announcement out of the way, we’re free to get some hands on play time with the device and our first impressions are very impressive. Regular readers here will know I’m not easily impressed with Android phones but the T-Mobile G2X is a serious piece of hardware. While the plastic on the outside doesn’t conjure up thoughts of a device durable enough to fall 10 feet and … [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 just … [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. We had an opportunity to take a quick look at the hardware tonight and calling it small isn’t quite doing it justice. This thing is pocket friendly in a big way. If you need connectivity on the go, throw this thing in a shirt or jeans pocket … [read full article]

AT&T Says T-Mobile Can Keep It’s Current Pricing Structure

One of the more pressing questions for current T-Mobile users facing a takeover from AT&T is what will happen with their existing pricing plans. Well thanks to the guys at IntoMobile who managed to get an answer out of Ralph de la Vega at CTIA 2011 T-Mobile will keep it’s existing pricing structure. While we could interpret plenty from that as the IntoMobile folks did, does that mean T-Mobile will operate as … [read full article]

Early Hands On With The Sidekick 4G

We’re coming to you CTIA 2011 in Orlando and we just had an opportunity to go hands on with the Sidekick 4G. First impressions of the phone are pretty positive especially in terms of the hardware which just feels awesome. There is a definite Sidekick feel to the device and that’s a great thing. To be totally honest, the Sidekick 4G by Samsung feels a little sturdier or well constructed than the … [read full article]

Is The T-Mobile G2X Quad-Band 4G? Future Proofed?

I can absolutely see how this is interpreted in two ways but it appears that on the product page for the T-Mobile G2X there are quad-band 4G services. As you can see in my awesome screenshot job above the available bands are 850/900/1800/1900 for 2G services. Right after that shows AWS Bands IV / 2100 which are the current T-Mobile 4G HSPA+ frequencies. Moving right past that onto the second line … [read full article]

First Sidekick 4G Hands On Video Surfaces, Pricing Announced

We thought we’d have to wait until today to get a first look at the Sidekick 4G but the lucky folks at Laptop Mag have managed to get the very first hands on. Unfortunately without an available data connection they weren’t able to see just how well the phone holds up on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 21 network but it’s always nice to get a look at the phone that isn’t a marketing video. While no release … [read full article]
