Rover Previewed, Loved

After a bunch of speculation, and well, confirmation, we can assume that T-Mobile will be seeing the Nokia N900 sometime in the future.  Some lucky people, however, have had time to extensively preview this monster of an internet tablet, and luckily they documented everything.  The staff over at Mobile Review took the time to preview the Rover and give first impressions, giving some more clues on what to expect come launch time, including a … [read full article]

T-Mobile Pulse Passes The FCC

T-Mobile Pulse

The original thought was that T-Mobile was going to get the Huawei 8230.  Then uncertainty arose when the WiFi documents of the 8220 came around.  At long last, though, we have found the heartbeat, courtesy of the FCC, to the T-Mobile Pulse and it is alive (and I couldn’t be happier).  The T-Mobile Pulse is listed as a HSPA/UMTS/GPRS/GSM/EDGE Mobile Phone with Bluetooth, which seems about right.  Also, Huawei has asked that the … [read full article]

Click For The Holidays

I don’t know about you, but when I hear HTC I think about high end, most likely Windows Mobile, phones.  Well, as we have heard before, HTC is planning to attack the midrange handset audience this year with the HTC Click.  HTC is really hoping (warning, financial mumbo jumbo to follow) to increase its revenues 11% and its shipments 19% in the latter half of this year (late Q3 or Q4) by releasing the low … [read full article]

G1 Stuck Eating Cupcakes

While the G1 has been snacking on Cupcake, or Android 1.5, for quite some time now, it seems as though it will be too full to eat any more desserts.  While the first Android phone graced us with its presence, its hardware is lacking and is forcing it to be left out to get stale.  Dave Sparks, an Android software engineer, has said that devs “won’t be able to fit the latest [Android] release on … [read full article]

Huawei Android Actually 8220?

It has been a while since we have heard anything about the Huawei Android phone, but there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t dream about it.  In June we thought we were getting the 8230 in the third quarter of this year (how I wish that would happen) but there is some speculation that T-Mobile USA will be getting the 8220 (just like our European counter part).  Little … [read full article]

MotoDev Summit, Morrison To Attend

It hasn’t been much of a secret that Motorola is hoping to reclaim its former status (remember the RAZR?) with a handful of successful Android phones.  Motorola, however, is going about manufacturing their android phone in a different manner by focusing on recruiting developers.  On October 6th, Motorola will hold an event, MOTODEV Summit, to showcase the resources available to developers and provide a first look at the company’s upcoming [read full article]

T-Mobile and Customer Care Just Go Together

It seems like once again T-Mobile stands alone tied for the highest ranking among those tested in the J.D. Power and Associates 2009 Wireless Customer Care Performance Study.  This honor has been received by T-mobile nine, with only two ties, out of the last 10 customer care studies.  The study showed that: T-Mobile ranked highest in a tie among all wireless providers in Overall Customer Care Performance and was significantly ahead of the … [read full article]

Samsung Gravity 2 User Manual Leaked

I received a document, via email, today, and boy is it a real page turner.  I seriously *yawn* can’t put this thing down.  Well, while we are patiently waiting for the launch of this midrange text centered qwerty slider you can read up on how to use it.  I won’t bore you with the details of Making a Call and Switching the Phone On or Off (both real sections in the user manual) but you can … [read full article]

Samsung T659 (Scarlet) Sliding In September 2nd

The Samsung T659 (another phone you may remember from June), codenamed Scarlet, is another low end phone coming to T-Mobile in September.  The Scarlet is a 3G enabled slider with stereo bluetooth, a 2 megapixel camera with video capture, and is capable of E-mail, messaging (text, picture AND video) and instant messaging.  They are calling this a premium slider, so get them while they are hot.  Two more pictures after the break. … [read full article]

MyTouch 3G Rooted, Reportedly Sprouting

There was a report a long while back saying that the MyTouch 3G is impossible to hack, but in the words of Adidas “Impossible is nothing.”  Some crazy hackers (the well known Haykuro and dream_kill) set their eyes on the prize and have officially rooted the MyTouch.  Now, this isn’t an easy task, and the 20 step, or so, process makes it seem overly simple (alas, it is not).  Why root, … [read full article]
