Everyone hates a tease, but wait until…


We’re sure by this point your wondering what this is about. We’re going to answer by stating that by the end of this article, you will likely want to find out where we live, and throw something through our window. Yeah, this whole article is a tease, get over it. Tomorrow morning, between 9:00 AM and 10:00 AM (CST), keep your browsers pointed to TmoNews for some exciting information. We’re not revealing if it is good, bad, and anything in between. Nor are are we going to tell you what it is about. Use your imagination, sleep on it, and check back in the morning. If you are a larger blog, feel free to contact us and maybe we can work out an early release. Have a good 15 hours! Until next time….

  • illuminati

  • brian

    wow i wonder what it could be………….. lol

  • tech 10

    I wonder what the news will be now?…What did verizon get the new HTC DREAM?…lol….If anyone has an idea please share the info.

  • Jay

    I don’t think you guys will be promoting bad news so I’m guessing its definatley good awesome badass news. Maybe Android with full pics and specs???

    15 hours to go, I’ll be waiting…

  • Danny

    What? Kid Connect 2.0? All GPRS areas upgraded to EDGE? Customer service to re-open 24/7? LOL

  • lp894

    yea…..is that eastern? Pacific? Mountain? Canadian Time(lol)?

    (about the Canadian joke…i just said it because I’m American and Americans are supposed to have Canada jokes…hope no one takes offense to it)

  • cubs

    Way to go TMoNews.. now I won’t be able to get any sleep..
    The good thing though is that it’s probably Android related and I bet it’s nothing but good news. Maybe finally some official specs.

  • tech 10

    Guess i will have to wait till tomo night to find out…Would anyone care to text me to inform me?…..lol

  • ratchet

    this sucks. I wanna know sooooooooo bad!!

  • timmyjoe42

    Bring it!

  • Lancer

    Is this 9-10 am eastern time? Or pacific? What time zone are you goin off of

  • mingkee

    it’ll be JDPA result
    T-Mobile got 100
    VZW got 103
    Alltel got 102
    AT&T got 97
    where is Sprint? I can’t find it

  • Nik

    NO!!!!!!!!!!11 I HAVE SCHOOL TIL 4!!! Do you have any idea how bad tomorrow will be for me? I’m not gonna pay attention or anything and in turn, will fail my 3 tests tomorrow… You guys suck… Haha maybe if there was a text service where you texted your new blog posts to phones? Just an idea?

  • Nik

    Mingkee, sprint got 79… rofl
    And I doubt thats what it will be, engadget already posted it.

  • tech 10

    As stupid as this sounds…I really would love to know what the news is but my computer crashed the other night so i am using a friends so i am not sure when i can find out so being serious if anyone is willing to text me about the news send me a e mail at drive2delvr@aol.com and i will forward my number….thanks


    Like lp894 said, what timezone is it?

  • suhaib

    i hate you guys officially now -_-*

  • SteeleyBazzle

    In using what i have learnt in phylosophy 1001, this is a trick teaser. You are waiting untill tomorrow because you want us to “Dream” the possibilities. I have also determined by use of pythagorous theorem that TMONEWS ROXRZ to the second power. By sovling this worldwide mystery you bestowed on us, that i cleverly figured out to be the “dream”… i must ask…. did i win a phone?

  • justinhub2003

    oh snap!!!! no sleep for me tonight.and to every one asking about time zone, its says between nine and ten central time. so 10 and 11 for me on the EST


    Shawn just edited his post justin. :D I’ll have a good sleep then wake up at 1PM tomorrow and view it. :P

  • T1 Connect

    that hurts tmo news thats f-d up watch them say they’re releasing the android early

  • MobilePaddy

    Ok, I’m gona go with the announcement of the SE Xperia X1 coming to T-Mobile early october.

  • Shawn

    Just edited the post with the correct time zone. Sorry about that.

    AHHHHHHHHHHH not the Xperia! I promise it has nothing to do with that. I would love if it did…but it doesn’t.

    We’re not telling anyone at this point so stay tuned.

  • lewis

    WOW wonder what it’s? But I’m pretty sure It’s something good. I have to work tomorrow but I’ll keep an eye on this site from my BB :)

  • Jay

    @ Tech 10

    I’ve sent you an e-mail

  • tech 10

    Jay…ur the man…..ty again

  • J

    Hmm, I work for T-Mobile and have not heard anything that would warrant this kind of attention so it worries me a bit. Hopefully it is just a new handset. I rarely hear about those and there have been a few murmurs about possibilities. I have heard of some 3G news that could possibly be bad or good. Also heard the letters “LTE” mentioned (though only in short) for the first time by higher ups. I just hope this won’t ruin my Friday…like finding out we are buying Sprint or something. I may have to start calling back on some of those other job offers…heh.

  • mingkee

    tech 10
    tmonews blog has version for phone/pda
    I use it, and it’s handy

  • tech 10

    ty for the info mingkee

  • Joseph Singer

    Well, this is a big bit of nothing!

  • tech 10

    Chances are they are going to say that it will be available for per sale in the next week or two if what i am hearing correct?

  • tech 10

    tmobile employess most of the time get one weeks notice before something arrives for sale.

  • J

    I can see the headline now:

    “Germans name David Hasselhoff CEO. Quickly release K.I.T.T. smartphone.”

  • tech 10

    lol j says

  • tech 10

    got to admit…that was funny

  • tech 10

    got a good laugh from that one

  • Lancer

    I’m thinking it has to do with the javelin for some reason but I’m dreamin that it is specs/picture/video of android

  • Lancer

    I’m thinking it has to do with the javelin for some reason but I’m dreamin that it is official specs/picture/video of android

  • just me

    sorry but want am i missing here?…Everyone keeps talking about pics/specs with the android…Are you saying the phone itself might not come with that?….I am lost…inform me

  • Phil

    Heres a question for all. Whatever it is, why didn’t/aren’t they posting it now?

    -If its a really big thing, other blogs would know about it, and shawn would have posted it already to get attention to tmonews
    -If its something they learned from an insider (and it’s no where else either), could it even be accurate?

  • David


    1) Why is it not possible for us to know about something first?
    2) Why can’t Shawn wait and build a little excitement?
    3) Our “insiders” have been pretty accurate so far, if we were constantly wrong I don’t think you or I would be here reading this site right now

  • Paul

    I feel like I’ve been KITT – Kicked in the T#sticles

  • Phil

    Hi David,

    First and foremost, I’m not gonna waste my time and say, I HOPE I’M WRONG, and I hope this is Android related :)

    1) Oh it is. But if it’s something like, pre-sale is official, or Dream specs, I would think there would be something else, but hey, a leak has to start somewhere, right?
    2) Let’s do it!
    3) True, let’s hope

    Bring it on Shawn!

  • Shader

    I seem to recall some specs for the touch pro were supposed to be released tomorrow by the fcc….

  • David

    I’m all for us announcing that T-mobile has been sold to David Hasselhoff and that the T-mobile commercials will now include the baywatch theme song. Sadly, thats not it…but it would be cool as shit if it was!

  • rommel

    n-95 8gig?,doubt it.att is getting in november.

  • Mr.gadget

    I can’t wait that damn long.

  • ratchet

    who said anything about the N95 8GB ? and I find it very hard to believe at&t is gonna pick that up

  • OldPro

    I think we’re going to be told that T-Mobile users are going to be able to get iPhones ….

    … because AT&T is going to buy T-Mobile :D

  • drivethruboy168

    Okay… I’m just gonna assume it’s bad news like, we are not getting the bold 9000, or it is true that the android I’d delayed till next year! Soo… I’ll be at Disneyland tomorrow and I’ll keep checkin on my curve. And what ever news these guys get that run the site, is really accurate. Almost think they work for the company deep inside, to get this info. But hey if yea! ROCK ON! This is the stuff T-Mobile needs to release toi reassure there customers that they are getting A LOT better and they have stuff up there sleaves to really compete with it’s competitors. Soo… I guess we’ll see tomorrow, but bad news is bad news, stuff gets delayed all the time. Soo… I’ll be sad for now and when I come across this news tomorrow hopefully it will top my day off at Disneyland!

  • Eric in Cupertino

    Shadow II with janky 240Mhz CPU and UMA.

  • mingkee

    never, ever let this happen
    if this happen, entire USA will be doomed!

  • remnique

    i can wait til tomorrow, i know everyone is dreaming of that, me ley it be the omnia

  • Some Dude

    @ #49/51
    I honestly believe the FCC would draw the line at that one. I believe Verizon/Alltel is the last big merger/aquisition we’ll see in the US. I can’t imagine a US Wireless industry where there is one mega-behemoth GSM carrier, one behemoth CDMA carrier, and one half-irrelevant CDMA Carrier on the national scene.

  • Kaptin

    whatever happens…happens….
    its not like we can control it..
    all i know is google worked hard to produce a product and I want (:

  • Jake

    mingkee we wouldn’t just be doomed but we would become canada!!!!

  • Jimbo831

    I love how Phil doubts that this site can get any info before it is elsewhere and then doubts any information on the site. In the past tmonews has been first on several big announcements I recall and has been very accurate ever since I started reading a couple months ago.

  • The one in the know

    Well, its not anything bad. No person(s) with common sense would hype up a release of information that would be negative. So, if its good news, its either; The remaining city dates for 3G or its details about the Dream. I’m guessing exclusive photos and detailed specs of the Dream. I called it…..

  • Paul

    this has something to do with 3G , speed faster than everyone else, or major switch being turned on with many markets having it sooner than we expect!!! One of these two, bet the house on it!!!!

  • mingkee

    there’ll be 3-5 next 14 days
    Sept will have massive activation, till 20 something are active by October

  • T1 Connect

    damn this has to be a handset release it too dam exciting for something else the supense is like acid reflux just burnin up my insides shawn whatever it is. hit us off now i gotta get up early

  • RockinRocky

    Well, it’s probably that RIM has decided to give T-Mo the Bold, (oops, sorry, it’s gonna be called the ‘London’ on T-Mo, only AT&T get to call it the Bold!), exclusive instead of AT&T, ’cause of the ‘brow-beating’ e-mail I sent ’em about that!

  • Steve

    I think it will be the G3 PC Card. G3 not much use with out it.

  • edwin

    The Diamond will be the Shadow II

    hey, it doesnt cost anything to dream!

  • You mean the 3G PC card? Why bother? Someone will have a release-day app for the Android phone they are announcing in the morning to use the “Dream” as a WiFi hotspot running 3G, and the days of tethering are over for TMo (:

  • Paul

    It will the anouncement of fastest high speed network over cell in USA and cheapest pricing! I’m 95% sure of this!

  • drivethruboy168

    2nd post for me now… Looks like I can’t fall asleep, with me actually working for T-Mobile and always kept in the loop about new and upcoming devices and services, it’s eating me not knowing what this teaser is. I bet it’s nothing! If it’s nothing, I’ll laugh sooo hard! Because everyone is going crazy about this. That would be tite if the Touch Diamond ended up in our line up! We don’t know the specs from the FCC so anything is possible! And if the Bold is going to be called the “London” I could deal with that. I’m in a running to win a new blackberry whenever it comes out soo… We’ll see!

  • Spike B

    Well lets see. HTC dream rumors are rampant, sure full specs would be nice, but the current rumors paint a pretty complete picture on timing, price, and the most important specs (Keyboard, large screen, 3g). Although one would think Google would release the new android+sdk before the handsets ship. So I predict a dramatically updated SDK+Android. Many more features, gmail integration, unified contact management, better gmail support, etc.

  • ratchet

    here’s the news people… Verizon Wireless will be purchasing t-mobile then convert all their subscirbers to CDMA users DUH! kidding lol. I hope the news is a t-mobile roadmap or the specs of the dream… just please let it be G R E A T news!

  • T1 Connect

    congratulations shawn for tonight you have a piece of the mobile world in your hands. got a brother gettin up so early.

  • lewis

    Damn it. Can’t go to sleep now!!!! i have to be here on the look out lol. Shawn do you take Paypal? Lol

  • Ashraf

    no, i think its that Verizon got 1st place, Alltel in 2nd and T-Mobile in 3rd place for customer service…


  • phoneking13

    Ok. Its 5:18am and I’m watching the news. There was a segment that TMo will be the first with the android phone, to be made by HTC. They really didn’t say a release date but I’m sure they’ll repeat it. I’ll keep you posted.

  • Fbarkon

    it has to be about the release of a handset. I’m hoping the android. I’m fantasizing that I will be preordering mine right after I read the blog. Or maybe it’s the actual photo… like i care I’m getting it if it is literally a brick that happens to make phone calls and surf the net. It’s not about the opening of new 3g markets. Many have opened without this fanfare. Btw I loved the top secret FCC doc on the android coming soon blog. C’mon T mobile I believe in you “Let my android go!”

  • edwin

    dude i just woke up!
    I HAD A DREAM!!!
    now i cant go back to sleep!

  • Fbarkon

    Please please tell me it isn’t the release of the Blackberry Bold. I want my Dream phone.

  • (The New York Times is reporting that T-Mobile will be the first carrier to offer Android). I just saw it on Engadget

    Sorry for doing this…but you should told us before anybody else do.

    Epic fail

  • edwin

    go check Engadget and Gizmodo…they gave credit ti TmoNews for the articles

  • Sunny

    I just woke up.. I had a dream that t-mobile had Nation wide 3G,3G roaming agreements with At&T, and better 3G phones that At&t.

  • Iam talking about a new article which is just posted at

    Aug 15th 2008 at 5:02AM

    New York Times: T-Mobile to sell HTC Android phone as early as October


  • GoCubs

    1 hour and 5 mins to go… damn it.. this is killing me!!!

  • pauliewallnuts

    i switched to the iphone (sorry, i know…it sucks) and i was so fed up with it i called Tmo customer support and asked if i could come back…the answer was obviously yes and then proceeded to charm the girl and ask too many questions about android. she basically confirmed everything everyone read on the site…she especially confirmed that “i would highly recommend coming back as soon as possible if you are this much interested in the android phone”

    that being said. i still haven’t returned the iphone because i am not buying a smart phone (which i need) from TMO right before the dream (G1) comes out…so i’m holding on to this till an announcement is made (hopefully i won’t have this phone by saturday (wink)

  • Ricki Verizon got the JD power as #1 then Alltell #2 and then T-mobil as #3.

    Today, 7:46 AM by Eric M. Zeman

    According to informed sources cited by the New York Times, T-Mobile USA will be the first network operator to launch a phone running the Android platform. The Times’ sources said the phone would be manufactured by HTC, and could be available as early as October. It will feature a touch screen and a sideways slide-out keyboard, which is a design used by HTC on its other smartphones. Google, the company behind Android, and T-Mobile did not comment on the details.
