Flash Coming to Android First Half Of 2010

Not much of new news here since we already knew Flash for Android handsets was coming in early 2010. If you didn’t already know, enabling Flash on a mobile handset would make it possible to play streaming video inside the browser. Online video streaming websites (YouTube and Hulu) rely on Flash player. This is something that has been absent in many handsets, but that should change come early 2010. Adobe claims that Flash content is present … [read full article]

Nokia 5230 T-Mobile Bound?

With the inclusion of AWS (T-Mobile 3G) on the N900, it was clear to see that Nokia and T-Mobile were starting to warm up to one another.  In fact, it is starting to look like we may be graced by another T-Mobile 3G ready Nokia soon. What makes us think this, you might ask?  Well, the good ol’ FCC filings show an indication for support of our AWS bands.  While it has been a while since T-Mobile has … [read full article]

T-mobile Releases Tap

Not a whole lot of fanfare surrounding the release of the T-Mobile Tap, but as a “smart” dumbphone it fits nicely between the traditional phone and the Android lead T-Mobile smartphone lineup. Coming in at $79.99 it’s a perfect little stocking stuffer this holiday season. Touchscreen, 3G and a 2.0 megapixel camera — what more could you ask for in a phone that won’t break the bank?

Walmat Offering $100 Gift Card With Blackberry Purchases?

This comes courtesy of the boys at Gizmodo who report Walmart as giving away a $100 gift card with the purchase of a shiny new Blackberry purchase.

Well somehow this skipped our radar yesterday but apparently T-Mobile laid out “aggressive” plans to deploy 7.2 Mbps HSPA through all 3G spectrum by year’s end.  Even more noteworthy is T-Mobile’s continued discussion regarding an HSPA+ rollout in 2010 that would be a “fairly broad scale” rollout. T-Mobile continued to emphasize 3G coverage will expand to 200 million pops before the end of 2009 with 240 cities currently covered. This contrasts to the AT&T and … [read full article]

T-Mobile Pricing Guide, No Surprises

The above picture was emailed to me about two days ago and unfortunately, shows no surprises in either price of as-of-yet unannounced handsets.

Based on the price guide, the Behold 2 and Blackberry 9700 both price $449.99 at full retail pricing. Breaking that down leads to a Even More Plus monthly … [read full article]

The Samsung Behold 2 has gotten plenty of prime time love on the blog lately and deservingly so. Samsung’s first outing on T-Mobile will hopefully be met with lots of fanfare and glowing reviews.  While we still await “official” specs, ninja sources have assured me there is very little lag in the interface and we can expect more hands on time later this week. Either way, there is a large gallery after the jump … [read full article]

T-Mobile Says Goodbye to MyFaves

After T-Mobile introduced its new Even More plans, everyone was wondering why in the world T-Mobile had decided to get rid of their MyFaves plans which many, including myself, loved. If you aren’t already familiar with the MyFaves feature, it simply was unlimited calling to any 5 people (landline or mobile) who were labeled as your “Faves”. T-Mobile, in reply to FierceWireless, claimed that it’s “simply time to replace the feature”. T-Mobile states that they are … [read full article]
