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]

Samsung “Exhibit 4G” Hitting T-Mobile Soon?

What’s this I see before us? The Samsung T759 running Android 2.3.3 on T-Mobile? I believe this phone will hit T-Mobile shelves as the Samsung “Exhibit.” We don’t know much about the phone but our ninja said he expected the Exhibit to sport a 3.7″, 480 x 800 AMOLED display and is running Gingerbread 2.3.3 as the image shows. Rumored but unconfirmed specs include a 1.4GHz ARM11 processor, 5 megapixel camera with 720p … [read full article]

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. This black model has a completely blacked out body (did I mention it’s black) hence the Black moniker. 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]

From Yesterday: Google Starting To Send Out Android 2.3.4 To Nexus S Devices, Brings Video Chat

Not to be forgotten in our news cycle is the release of Android 2.3.4 which will start shipping to Nexus S devices in the coming weeks. By hooking up through your Gmail and Google Talk friends list, Android 2.3.4 is launching video chat whether they are on a compatible Android tablet or phone or over the computer. Video chat will (thankfully) take place over 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi connections. In your Google … [read full article]

T-Mobile To Carry Samsung Galaxy S 2?

If we were to take a straw poll as to what already announced Android phone T-Mobile customers want to see on the Magenta network, the Galaxy S 2 would undoubtedly be at the top of the list. With that in mind we might have some good news. First comes the above picture which comes courtesy of Adobe.com and while it’s a little tough to make out, a little zooming in magic shows … [read full article]

HTC DoubleShot Coming In Three Colors, HTC Flyer Arriving Early July?

Coming off of yesterdays HTC DoubleShot report is a tipster stepping in and telling us the device will come in not one, not two but three colors and is likely a myTouch Slide 4G successor. Given the name doubleshot and the likelihood with which T-Mobile gives the myTouch line coffee based codenames we’re inclined to believe this is a very real possibility. Of course this is a strict rumor … [read full article]

(Updated) HTC DoubleShot Confirmed As Qwerty Slider?

Update: Nick from HTCSource just made an interesting observation whereas the original myTouch Slide has a 600MHz processor and the “Double”Shot is alleged to have a 1.2 GHz processor. That would be “double.” Coincidence? For those of you who like to follow device releases by codename, the DoubleShot may be next great QWERTY slider for T-Mobile. When we first broke the news of the DoubleShot codename we were admittedly … [read full article]
