Will UMA Ever Come To Android? Ever?

Almost exactly a month to the day  I wrote a short editorial about why I think UMA still matters, especially on Android. I don’t think I read one dissenter in the comments who stated that UMA on Android wouldn’t be a welcomed addition. Then yesterday came a report from GigaOM namesake Om Malik who spoke to an unnamed T-Mobile representative and was told that T-Mobile would “continue to support UMA on the current … [read full article]

T-Mobile Looking To Step Up Android Push?

I have to admit I’m not sure if this page is new and I just happened to stumble onto it last night or if it’s old and I just happened to stumble onto it last night anyway. Either way, it looks as though T-Mobile is going on an Android offensive looking to showcase its Android diversity and strength, not to mention place as the original Android carrier in the US.  Head on over to [read full article]

T-Mobile Prepping for Motorola Charm Launch

It’s almost August 25th, meaning the Motorola Charm launch is practically upon us. As you can see from the photos, Charm handsets have been arriving at T-Mobile stores as the staff preps displays for the big day. As we previously reported, look for this handset to go on sale for $74.99 on contract and $269.99 off-contract. I for one will definitely be purchasing one.  Reminds me of my old Blackberry days. Oh, and … [read full article]

Oh Hai Motorola, Wherefore Art My Updates?

I think the question I get asked the most lately is when is “insert Android device name here” getting updated to “insert latest Android software here”. When I say I get asked this the most, I mean it’s usually a more common question than when the next best phone is coming out for T-Mobile.  I really want to make this a scolding Motorola post because I think it’s incredibly disheartening and bad form that they … [read full article]

The T-Mobile G1 should hold a special place in the hearts of Android fans everywhere as we say goodbye to the phone that started it all.

Hey T-Mobile Users! Rooting & Jailbreaking No Longer Gives You Prison Fears

Here’s a bit of good news for those of you that love jailbreaking and unlocking your iPhones and for those that can’t live without rooting your Android handsets. Today, the United States government has announced that jailbreaking and unlocking iPhones, and rooting of Android phones is completely legal as long as they are not violating copyright laws.

Getting Social with T-Mobile

T-Mobile has made it very clear that their strategy is to promote friends and families.  What better way is there to stay connected with these friends and families than by using those crazy social networks that the kids seem to love these days.  Oh, right…I guess we could make some phone calls, but who wants to do that (it’s the 21st century people, I mean really).  Anyways, T-Mobile is getting into the social network game … [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]
