Christmas Coming Early For Blackberry Lovers?

If you aren’t looking for the next best thing in the Android world, Blackberry still sits on the throne as king of the Smartphone world. Sorry Apple, RIM still has some juice. Easily one of the most anticipated Blackberry developments in the T-mobile world would be a device sporting 3G goodness. We’ve been graced with an early look before with the always sought after T-mobile USA markings. Enough of the back-story though, when is it coming … [read full article]

Motorola And Magenta Marrying On September 10th?

Sascha Segan over at PC Mag (via Gearlog) has posted up an interesting theory on why he feels the Motorola event will be a T-mobile based launch. Through the simple process of elimination, Sascha explains one of the standout reasons. One of the keynote speakers is our dear overlord, T-mobile CTO Cole Brodman. Other factors such as details that Verizon and Sprint are either stating to be missing the event altogether, and with AT&T playing coy, all … [read full article]

Sony Ericsson Equinox

Specs: 3.2 Megapixel camera, Stereo Bluetooth, Pulsating colors coordinated with caller ID …currently we don’t know much else other than the standard set of features.

Blackberry 8520 Dressed In White

Perhaps I just have an affinity for white phones as I feel white just looks sleeker and more streamlined. I know others will believe black offers the very same effect but hey, I’m writing this! While the retail release date seems to be missing, the Black 8520 dropped on the same day as Walmart so we’ll just hope for the same luck this time around. Of course, Walmart was also offering this introductory Blackberry at $48.88, a … [read full article]

Motorola Morrison Passes FCC

While we check off the number of days until the big Motorola announcement September 10th, we can’t resist an opportunity to speculate. Of course, speculation wouldn’t be as fun without the FCC helping our minds and hopes go wild. Today they bring us what is believed to be the Motorola Morrison aka Model number T56KV1. Ok so obviously that’s a codename for something, hopefully “Morrison.” Then again, Morrison could be a codename for something … [read full article]

Palm Springs Goes 3G

Well it didn’t take very long to get another 3G city on the map for T-mobile with the announcement that Palm Springs, California has gone live. Once called home by Frank Sinatra Palm Springs is a city that one might envision lifestyles of the rich and famous and now with 3G services, even the most pampered celebrity can enjoy voice and data at the same time! This year is blowing by and while I know a … [read full article]

Wherefore art thou CS8?

Sony Ericsson is hands down my favorite cell phone manufacturer of all time. I have always been in love with their quick but feature rich phone icon based interface. I love the simplicity of it, the ability to hack the hell out of it and theme that baby to your heart’s content. Of course, the personalization is no more so than any Nokia would allow, but SE gets my love and adoration. Therefore, I pose the question … [read full article]

N900 Photo Samples Appear

While the N900 is official, and the specs have been basically determined, there is still a lot that needs to be known about the mysterious Nokia.  Lets be honest though, Nokia tends to be camera happy, and with a 5 megapixel shooter and Carl Zeiss optics, the N900 is bound to be a competitor.  In a somewhat usual manner, picture samples shot with the N900 have been leaked to the internet.  It is important … [read full article]

Reminder: Overage Charges Increasing

rising-rates

About a month ago David reported that overage charges were going to increase come September 1st, and well…that is tomorrow.  Treat this as a friendly reminder to save yourself a bunch of trouble, and charges, by changing your plan if you think (can you really plan this?) you will be using more than your allotted minutes.  Chances are, you will be fine, but if you have gone over on your minutes a number of times before, … [read full article]

Three Phones T-Mobile Bound

Noka-3710a T-Mobile

As some of you may know, I happen to love when the FCC unveils information about upcoming phones.  Well, this wonderful government body (which has all the fun with new phones) has granted access to three new phones for T-Mobile.  To begin with, we have the Nokia RM-509 (pictured above and known as the 3710 elsewhere), which is a mid range flip phone with a QVGA internal display, S40 UI, GPS, 3.2MP camera, Bluetooth and … [read full article]

The New and Improved Tmonews

Dearest Readers, Tmonews has seen some definite hardships in the last two weeks. Server troubles have plagued the day-to-day life of the website and caused my hair to turn gray. Really, it’s all gray now. In an effort to stem the anger and frustration I have experienced and the readers have endured we have decided to accelerate some of our plans for the unveiling of the “new” Tmonews. Dust will be prevalent for the coming days as … [read full article]
