T-mobile to release 16 new phones by August?

Well this is one that you may have to take with a grain of salt, but lets hope for the best! Between June 16th, and August 1st, T-mobile has 16 phones slated for release, or should we say 16 device launches. The document from which we snatched this data is indeed internal T-mobile, however usually it is more of a good guess of what will happen, rather than an set-in-stone depiction of upcoming launches. That said, 16 … [read full article]

Nokias Delayed, Motorola Z6w trashed

We hate to be the bearer of bad news so we apologize. Please don’t shoot the messenger. Unfortunately, T-mobile has delayed the launches of the Nokia 5310 and 5610. Oh, and the Motorola Z6w? Looks like that one got some failing grades in early testing and was scrapped. Fortunately, the 5310 will launch in three colors, red, orange, and purple. We don’t know when exactly, but expect the Nokia 5310 in early June, … [read full article]

Nokia 7376 headed our way

With T-mobile’s release of 3G, a lot of concern has surfaced regarding the lack of handsets that support T-mobile’s AWS 3G bands. Well add the 7376 to that short list of 3G enabled handsets. Sporting 1700/2100 IV, this baby should easily be able to pick up T-mobile’s UMTS, and in the future, HSDPA. Sightings of the 7376 have popped up on a few different site, such as page six of [read full article]

UMTS? Psh, that's nothing!

After years of delays and assorted issues, T-mobile USA finally has rolled out 3G in New York City. We were told it would come out months ago. It didn’t. We were told it would be voice only. It wasn’t. We were told it will be UMTS data. It wont be. Wait, what?! Yep folks, T-mobile’s phase I of their 3G launch involves only UMTS data. However, it looks like plans are to do a little upgrading on … [read full article]

One more thing…

I suppose it would be helpful if we mentioned what phones are currently available and able to take advantage of the FULL Family 4-pack add-on features mentioned earlier? Of course, any myfaves phone will do for 3 of the 4, but if you want the unlimited minutes at home using the router, you’ll need one of their special UMA-enabled phones for each family member that wants those minutes. Currently available phones are: Nokia 6086 Samsung t409 … [read full article]

Flip Blackberry heading for T-mobile??

Our friends over at BoyGenius have gotten their hands on this little gem, the Blackberry KickStart. Blackberry really has caught up with the times and we can see the anticipation building for this superstar. Sporting a 2 MP camera, Video capture, and customizable skin (Sounds an awful like the Gekko we posted earlier), this one should be a winner. Of course on the “flip” side we have to remember what happened the last time blackberry … [read full article]

Sidekick Gekko details and more!

We are getting a lot of people asking if the Sidekick Gekko will be a Limited Edition SK, or a be a completely new device. We’ve also been getting questions as to why T-mobile is releasing a Sidekick so soon after the LX came out. Well, we have answers to both these questions and more.

Motorola W450 coming to T-mobile

Don’t everyone get excited about this phone at once! Wait a second…does anyone even care? Well we just bring you the news, and todays news (Besides that 3G thing nobody cares about) is that the Motorola W450 (AKA Salina) is headed to T-mobile.
