Samsung Vibrant Releasing July 15th, One Week Early?

UPDATE: And we’ve got picture evidence! Hold the phone here!! Word has just come to me, via multiple sources, that the Samsung Vibrant is releasing July 15th, NOT the 21st as previously discussed. We are unsure as the reason for the pushup but perhaps T-Mobile is looking to move their hottest phone out to combat the Droid X, Evo and iPhone onslaught. We’ll update with more details as soon as hear more but … [read full article]

Is This A Real Leaked T-Mobile Roadmap?

The guys over at Androidspin claim to have been sent, via one of their sources, a leaked T-Mobile roadmap showing off 16 devices coming the Magenta way. Let me just say right now, I don’t know if this is real, it most certainly doesn’t look like the roadmaps I have seen in the past…that’s not to say it’s fake, just saying I’m suspicious of its validity. Which means, for those of you who will inevitably … [read full article]

FCC Approves Motorola MB710, Next Stop T-Mobile

Remember that Motorola handset that passed FCC with AWS goodness in January? Yesterday, the folks over at the FCC updated the FCC entry with new pictures and a user manual in which there are mentions of T-Mobile USA services, specifically, MyFaves (now discontinued). Almost identical to the Motorola MOTOROI, the Motorola MB710 user manual also shows the handset will include MOTOBLUR, a 3.5mm headset jack, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and microSD … [read full article]

Motorola Charm Officially Announced

Well, it hasn’t been long since the Motorola Charm rumors first started to pick up speed.  Since then, it seems like we have learned more and more every day.  Now, the entry level Android phone has been officially announced by Motorola.  It packs everything that we told you about before (you know, the 2.8 inch screen, backtrack navigation, Android 2.1 with MOTOBLUR and so on) but it also has a few other tricks … [read full article]

HTC Explains Reasoning For Slow Updates

I think its safe to say that the delayed Android updates from Motorola have upset more than just a few of you, right?  The lack of updates combined with the lack of information regarding them has certainly soured many T-Mobile customers and Motorola customers on purchasing from the company in the future. Much like Samsung went through with the Behold II, it seems as though Android users are at the mercy of … [read full article]

Right On Cue, T-Mobile Unveils 3000 Minute Family Plan

Right on cue, T-Mobile has unveiled its newest rate plan addition in the form of a 3000 minute Family Plan for both Even More and Even More Plus customers.  As previously mentioned, some of you may ask why T-Mobile unveiled a rate plan at a price point that’s already offering unlimited minutes?  Of course, not everyone needs unlimited minutes but 1500 just isn’t enough.  On top of that, currently both Even More and Even … [read full article]

Is The Lack Of A Front Facing Camera On The Vibrant A Deal-Breaker?

Like it or not, the Samsung Vibrant is the T-Mobile phone of the moment.  It’s handily one of the most powerful phones in the T-Mobile lineup and yet one feature has a great deal of you up in arms, the lack of a front-facing camera.  Video chat via cell phone is nothing new as those in Japan, Europe and numerous other parts of the world have been using the service for years.  However, the … [read full article]

Motorola Charm In The Wild, Material Arriving In Stores?

Well, look what we have here.  It’s the very first image of the Motorola Basil/Charm in the wild!  Sent via pony express, our source was able to get a small hands-on last week with the device and came away with one interesting worthy note, the inclusion of a similar touchpad-like feature on the back of the device ala the Backflip on AT&T.  Not much else was gained from this hands-on, specifically the version of … [read full article]

Garminfone Sales Sluggish?

I really would love to feign surprise here but let’s just be honest and say this was almost expected.  According to Morgan Keegan analyst Yair Reiner, only around 20,000 Garminfones have made it into the hands of customers.  Offering little more than a full-on navigation platform, the device itself runs an outdated Android version, at 1.6, combined with its custom tailored menu which definitely makes it a niche device.  That being said, these numbers … [read full article]
