Sony Ericsson TM506 hitting T-mobile on Sep. 3rd

sebella

A picture is worth a 1000 words. Unless it completely fails to mention HSDPA or aGPS. The Sony Ericsson TM506 will have 1700/2100 MHz UMTS & HSDPA, yet following T-mobile’s current policy of not telling customers about the best features on their phones, T-mobile fails to mention any 3G features on this new Orange and Black beauty (it will come in Green and Black too). No worries, that is why we are here! … [read full article]

I’m so thrilled with the MS Paint work above, I just had to use that for the graphic today, I had better options but I think that one is just so bad, its so awesome. So don’t make fun of it!

bb8220-2

The time has come for those T-mobile Blackberry users that have gotten tired of Curves or Pearls. Our friends at BlackberryNews have presented us with the roadmap of T-Mobile’s 2008 Blackberry plans. Number 1: The Blackberry Kickstart (Pictured above). As the first ever flip-Blackberry, the Kickstart will have to prove itself in the Blackberry community, but with Hotspot@Home (UMA), OS 4.6, and seemingly all the same features as the Pearl 8120, … [read full article]

lasvegassign

As you have read, T-mobile will have 3G in the top 27 markets in the US by October 1st. But why not give a few lucky cities an early present, and flip the switch on 3G as early as…say, August 5th and 6th. That is right you lucky people living in the Las Vegas or Austin markets, as both of these markets will have live 3G in the next 48 hours. With … [read full article]

Sidekick helping to change the mobile web?

T-mobile Sidekick

Evidently, the T-Mobile Sidekick is a really popular mobile device to browse the web with.  At least according to the people over at Warner Music Group, who for the past few years have been watching the analytics (those stats that show who’s visiting what) of the group Paramore’s website.  What would be the one device that really stands out in those statistics?  That’s right, T-Mobile’s very … [read full article]

big3g-copy

Earlier this month we posted an article about some information that had come to us regarding an October 1 launch date for nationwide 3G. We wrote it with a grain of salt but we definitely had high hopes for this to be true. This poster, taped (poorly we might add) on the wall outside a meeting is our glass slipper, our unwavering proof of a date that will live in T-mobile infamy. … [read full article]

On August 6th, T-mobile will be introducing two new additions to their current competitive lineup of services. The first is the new parent-friendly Family Allowance, which we talked about yesterday (Yes, it was delayed due to some technical issues). The second new service should bring a lot of excitement to customers that hate 1 or 2 year contracts (or 3 like they have in Canada). Starting August 6th, T-mobile … [read full article]

Thanks to BreatheT-mobile, we (again) have pictures of an awesome-looking unreleased phone. The T-mobile Sidekick 2008, slated to be released on July 30th (AKA Tomorrow) comes in a small box, which helps to emphasize the small size of this new Sidekick. Not only is the size going to be small, Sidekick users will be able to customize their new Sidekick. Users can buy any of these skins for $14.99 each, however if … [read full article]
