Android Phone Updates Galore

I don’t know about you, but I really don’t like the ‘F’ word, that word being fragmentation of course.  How do we keep from saying such a bad word?  Updates of course, and T-Mobile has us covered on that front.  For those G2 users, your update for Wi-Fi calling and HotSpot should be done, and if not, it will be coming very soon.  An update for the myTouch 4G is also expected … [read full article]

Garminfone Now $129.99 After Rebate

While the timing of this price drop is likely coincidental considering the reports in recent days regarding the lackluster sales of the Garminfone T-Mobile has dropped the price to $129.99. The real question is will this do anything to boost sales of the Garminfone or is it to little to late? With the Samsung Vibrant on the horizon and with yesterdays rumored leak of the T-Mobile 2H 2010 roadmap the Garminfone … [read full article]

Asustek Says Garminfone Is Selling Perfectly Well Thank You Very Much

In the midst of today’s busy “TmoNews” day, Asustek has come out and refuted reports that the Garminfone isn’t selling well. While they declined to discuss exact numbers, Asustek claimed that the shipments of the phone were selling “as previously planned.” They also claim to have received positive feedback on the device from the marketplace. I guess we can just say, it’s a niche phone and I’m sure those who purchased it had … [read full article]

Garminfone Sales Sluggish?

I really would love to feign surprise here but let’s just be honest and say this was almost expected.  According to Morgan Keegan analyst Yair Reiner, only around 20,000 Garminfones have made it into the hands of customers.  Offering little more than a full-on navigation platform, the device itself runs an outdated Android version, at 1.6, combined with its custom tailored menu which definitely makes it a niche device.  That being said, these numbers … [read full article]

Comparison Chart, T-Mobile Vs iPhone 4

It’s not uncommon for carriers to release a bullet point comparison sheet when a competitor is about to drop a major device onto the scene. Considering it doesn’t get any bigger than iPhone 4, the fact that T-Mobile has a comparison chart available for its employees is hardly news. We think its well beyond safe to say that Sprint and Verizon have either posted their own or will do so in the coming days. What’s … [read full article]

Garminfone Gets Its Very Own Commercial

The Garminfone is likely going to fall under the niche category and may not have the mass appeal of say, the myTouch Slide. However, its still an incredibly unique device and worthy in its own right of a little thirty-second advertising spot. With full on board Garmin navigation system, this phone is perfect for the traveler, the out of town visitor and anyone who just manages to get lost. It’s been out for just … [read full article]
