T-Mobile CEO John Legere Taunts The Competition With LTE Speed Tests

The Twitter account of T-Mobile CEO John Legere (@john_legere) is handily one of the most entertaining I have ever seen in the technology industry, especially from a CEO.

Strangest Commercial Ever Offers T-Mobile Customers $100 Credit To Switch To Virgin Mobile

Hello again Virgin Mobile and thank you very much for the creepiest commercials ever. Seriously, Virgin’s second commercial in two years aimed directly at stealing T-Mobile customers is perhaps the oddest commercial I’ve seen in recent wireless industry history. A brain jumping on a chair is somehow appealing and makes me want to switch carriers, riiiiiight. I’m usually pretty critical of T-Mobile’s marketing but at least I don’t cringe when I … [read full article]

T-Mobile’s Android Marketshare At 16% Says Survey

T-Mobile maintains its claim to fame as being the first to introduce an Android device with the announcement of the T-Mobile G1 on October 22, 2008. Back then Android was an untested, unproven operating system that more of a Google pet project than a viable contender against the likes of the iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Phone.

Sprint Says Competition Is “American,” AT&T Says Whatever, We Rule
