T-mobile Wins At Customer Service Again

While T-mobile may be fluttering in fourth place in the wireless market, they aren’t sitting on their laurels when it comes to customer service.

Alltel (721) and Verizon Wireless (714) follow T-Mobile in the rankings.” … [read full article]

First Cliq Review

Nokia N97

While we wait for the pre-order date and availability date, how about some impressions from lucky people (or just rewatch all those videos).  This specific review, however, is actually for the DEXT, but they are essentially the same phone (is anyone complaining?).  Katherine, over at T3, was lucky enough to get some time with the Cliq sibling and she seems rather impressed by it, even calling it a “new dawn” for … [read full article]

Nokia 5130 Playing September 16th


Here is a friendly reminder about T-Mobile’s next media centered phone.  The Nokia 5130, which we told you about last month, is destined for shelves tomorrow and will replace the Nokia 5310 (that still seems backwards to me).  It is a pretty simple, affordable, music playing phone with a 2 megapixel camera, external music controls, a 3.5 mm headphone jack (YAY!) and it will have a couple of color options.  Full specs and a picture after … [read full article]


Obvious Simpson’s reference aside, here is some news for those current (or upcoming) Android users.  Google has released the SDK for Android 1.6 or Donut (which really gives the power to developers to fine tune the update).  However, what interests the consumer is that Donut will officially be served to the masses “as early as October” (HEY! that is in like two weeks!).    This Donut will be stuffed with a tasty cream filling … [read full article]

T-mobile To Discuss Post 3G Plans

A lot has been said in the wireless world about what life will be like in a post 3G environment. Fourth generation technology offers significant speed improvements and hopefully significantly improved technology capable of enhancing reception in areas that have been all too often problematic, say inside a building?! Sprint, AT&T and Verizon have all committed themselves publicly to fourth generation networks with Sprint leading the pack promising a Wimax rollout before the competition. However, our beloved … [read full article]

David Does Talk Radio

Looking for some talk radio discussing all things Android, Cliq and everything else?  Look no further.  Our very own David (you know him, right?) is appearing as a guest on Android Guys Podcast tonight (September 14th, 2009) to discuss Android, and more specifically the Cliq.  Listen in and maybe you will hear some delightful news (I can’t promise this, but it is sure possible).  Head on over and give them a listen, it should … [read full article]

Sense in Tattoo


Motorola Cliq or Huawei Luna not your style, then maybe some HTC Tattoo fits your needs.  While we have known that the Tattoo has android, we can now see that it will also run the Sense UI, which ultimately means it will not be a “With Google” phone.  It seems odd to me that HTC would run the sense UI on a 2.8 inch resistive touch screen, but I’m not entirely complaining.  Head … [read full article]

No Charge For Paper Billing Now?

Well, today is just full of flip flopping companies.  First, with Nokia deciding that Carriers can customize Maemo on the N900 (and future handsets) and now T-Mobile has a surprise for all of us.  A while back we told you that T-Mobile was going to start charging for paper billing, all in an effort to conserve paper and save the planet (a gallant effort nonetheless).  Then Kyle (a moderator over at the T-Mobile forums) announced this: … [read full article]

Here Comes The Cliq Pre-Order

Oh how this is sure to please the masses, as you can see above a pre-order date for the Cliq is in full effect. Price and official release date is still TBD but is there really a price to put on social networking love? This is surely going to get the rumor mill churning on all things Cliq knowing that we are less than 45 days away from the pre-order and in typical T-mobile fashion, a pre-order … [read full article]
