Apple iPhone 6 Plus – First impressions [Pics and size comparison]

Apple’s new iPhones are “Bigger than Bigger”, whatever that means, and while it might not apply so much to the 4.7-inch model, it definitely applies to the iPhone 6 Plus. I’ve had it in my possession for approximately 6 hours (at time of writing) and I have to say, I’m so glad I didn’t go for the smaller model. And just so we deal with the elephant in the room first. It’s Big … [read full article]

Perfect T-Mobile partner needs to have spectrum and customers, makes Iliad buyout unlikely

There’s no two ways about it: T-Mobile is an attractive company right now. It’s disrupting the wireless industry, expanding its network and taking customers from its competitors at a rate of 3:1*, and of all 4 major carriers, it has the best public image and appeal. What’s more, Deutsche Telekom wants to get rid. Not because T-Mobile is unsuccessful, but because it needs to focus its efforts on competing in Europe. But what … [read full article]

New Moto X now available to pre-order from Motorola

  Just beating Apple by a whisker, Motorola has just made its Moto X available for pre-order, and it’s available in T-Mobile flavor right from the off.
