Way back in October when the Even More and Even More Plus plans saw their unveiling, quite a few readers wondered where the data only plans had gone?  It’s important to recognize that a small but important minority of users have no need for voice services and just require a data package.  Typically, the Sidekick was the phone of choice for these individuals who saw the Qwerty keyboard device as a one-stop shop for communication.  … [read full article]

Dell Mini 10 Pricing

Update: Apparently there is a little confusion over the 3G connection and the Dell Mini 10. The webconnect services are built in, just the same as a Verizon or AT&T netbook comes with the service pre-configured. The same goes for T-Mobile here. The netbook is, by all accounts, a road warrior’s dream.  Lightweight with a lengthy battery and mostly capable hardware, the netbook has the computer industry in a frenzy.  Thus far, T-Mobile has remained idle … [read full article]

Boise, Idaho Now Experiencing 3G Goodness!

Residents of Boise, Idaho are rejoicing!  Thanks to T-Mobile, they are now experiencing 3G goodness!
