ZOMG!!! Netflix Is Beginning To Rollout To Android Devices

It isn’t often that I write about Android specific apps here on TmoNews but Netflix has a special place in my heart for being one of the awesomest services available. That’s right I said awesomest.

T-Mobile To Only Sell Motorola Defy “Black” From Now On

Prepare yourself for some earth shattering news as T-Mobile will only sell the Motorola Defy in “Black” from now on. The above image indicates Motorola Defy sales will be of the all “Black” variant as opposed to the “Black Linen” which has the ivory tone backside. As of this writing both models are still available on T-Mobile.com so I’ll assume that will be the case until the remaining inventory of the Black … [read full article]

T-Mobile Partners With Google, Android Updates For 18 Months

T-Mobile has partnered with Google in order to work toward a world where Android devices will receive platform updates for 18 months after a device launches. The only “catch” is that the hardware has to allow the update. I hope this doesn’t mean a phone can receive a 12 months update since it falls within that 18 month windows. This sounds great, but we’ll have to see a breakdown of the rules … [read full article]

T-Mobile And HTC Tease G2 Gingerbread

There has been plenty of talk about the T-Mobile G2 receiving Gingerbread, most of it unofficial. Early April saw a report courtesy of ComputerWorld that the G2 would definitely receive Gingerbread sometime over the “Summer.” Well we just received a ninja shot of a flyer being sent out to T-Mobile employees indicating that the G2 is absolutely positively receiving Gingerbread and this will certainly put to rest any argument saying otherwise. … [read full article]

What’s this I see before us? The Samsung T759 running Android 2.3.3 on T-Mobile?

T-Mobile Releases “Black” Motorola Defy

Coming in under our radar was the launch of the Motorola Defy in Black, not to be confused with the current Defy model which has a White shell.

Right now the Motorola Defy in Black is on sale via a web-only special on T-Mobile.com for just $49.99. The price is good through September 1st … [read full article]

Early Look At T-Mobile G2x Running Gingerbread

I must admit to a little jealousy of Chris Ziegler of Thisismynext.com (formerly of Engadgetmobile) as he scored himself a preview of Gingerbread for the T-Mobile G2x. While T-Mobile promised it wouldn’t be a long wait for early G2x adopters, with no solid date given we’re going to eat up any previews of what to expect on the G2x when in fact the update does arrive. You can check out the video above or read … [read full article]
