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.

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.

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.

All you skater-texters rejoice, because this phone is made for you. We don’t have too many details other then it will be Tony Hawk branded, but we’re guessing the housing will be pretty durable to … [read full article]
