Open Comment Friday


Well thank goodness its Friday because its that time again, the time we open up the comment section for our dear readers to discuss anything and everything they want. Now this week has seen some pretty big happenings, starting with our 3 part T-mobile Inventory Expose which gave us plenty of goodies but most notable was the MyTouch name for the hugely anticipated next Android device. Speaking of Android, perhaps the biggest news this week was the official word from T-mobile regarding Cupcake officially pushing to G1’s beginning next week. Hallelujah! Of course, we can’t forget our little Samsung leak which broke from our forums showing off a bevy of new 3G handsets expected to hit latter this year. These won’t excite the smartphone fans but those looking for a little 3G love without the bells and whistles should be pleased with these additions. Lets not forget another leak this week which showcased the upcoming addition of a very useful feature for users, visual voicemail which is expected to drop in July. Heaven knows I love to be able to pick and choose which voicemail I listen to! 

These stories weren’t the only news this week so make sure you are checking the blog every day to stay updated in the T-mobile world! OK, open comment time is a go!

    I am the first
    SK 09 will come next week, and I even saw the demo unit at corp store
    but I want CS5 and Touch Pro II

  • i was initially really excited about the mytouch aka sapphire aka magic from htc but i’m going to have to hold out for a samsung android device.

    the mytouch feels like an “it’s awesome but…” type of product which is sad because i wanted it to be all that and a bag of chips.

    CUPCAKE CUPCAKE CUPCAKE….. I’ve been waiting on this since Jan. My only hope is that t_mo wont let me down again.if anybody has a manual way to upload the upgrade please post…

  • Instant_classic

    I am waiting for cupcake, i wonder what Google has in store for us in the brownies update (android 2.0). Also I am seriously wish one of these companies makes a sexy looking android device soon. ( Please HTC, at lease something like the touch pro 2)

  • mingkee

    cupcake (aka Android 1.5) will be official in US next week as well
    wireless headphones support is good enough

  • efjay

    So can anyone elaborate, what is it about android that is so good? I personally havent seen anything on the G1 or Magic that makes this platform compelling, is it solely because its from google or that its NOT from Microsoft?

  • Touch Pro2 can’t come soon enough. They need to accelerate the launch ASAP. July 22nd is too far away.

  • Tony

    Here we go again…

  • Mago

    Anyone know what the pricing will be on the 3g Dash? Some online retailers have it listed for $699.I Wonder what the contract price will be.

  • Coco

    Anybody see the new picture just posted on engadget of the G1v2 from the walmart roadmap today? If it is true that thing looks really nice! I may hold out for that come October.

  • randi

    i am getting tired of open comment fridays. how about real tmo news?

  • Coco

    Oops. Those pictures are on BGR not engadget

  • My prediction for the 3G Dash will be $329 with a 2-year contract.

    @thedavekim: why do you say the mytouch looks like an “it’s awesome but…” device? I agree that the Samsung looks slicker, but aside from the 3.5mm headphone jack, it seems like more style than substance. I want to get away from big-bro VZ, and my plan is to jump to TMO when the MyMagicSapphireTouch comes out in the US (hopefully before the July Wal-Mart date). I don’t know if I can wait for the i7500, but I’m always curious about what other people are thinking about the phones.

  • G1 Lover (99%)

    I have been waiting for android “cupcake” update for a while now, and I can’t wait that it’s finally coming out…

    Of course, it’s coming out right about the time that I finally get used to the touchscreen keyboard on CHOMPSMS and STEEL browser (both are apps, but now that there are touchscreen keyboards on both then I’m gonna have to learn those two.)

    I hope it turns out as well as it can be. I love my G1, and it’s a little *tear* bittersweet that all the anticipation of this update is finally coming to an end.

    Can’t wait, though!

  • @C: i say the mytouch looks like an “it’s awesome but…” device because as much as i like it, i feel it’s lacking. from what i’ve seen of it, it’s a g1 without the qwerty and a better camera. to me, the i7500 is everything the mytouch should’ve and could’ve been.
