Though Motorola doesn’t claim their DEFY is “rugged” they do say it is scratch and water resistant and dust proof; thanks in part to its out-of-the-box bumper solution. Running Android 2.1, Defy has a 5-megapixel camera with flash, digital zoom and auto focus. more →
Before you get too excited about the prospects of getting a shiny new G2, you should know that the launch date for the Android phone is still scheduled to happen on October 6. The good news, though, is that you can place you pre-order at Best Buy’s store to guarantee one in your pocket on launch day.more →
It helps that the Galaxy S is available as the Samsung Vibrant (T-Mobile) and Samsung Captivate (AT&T), as well as the Samsung Epic 4G (Sprint) and the Samsung Fascinate (Verizon) soon. This greater choice makes it easier to push more units.more →
Earlier this week we were teased with the pending availability of the T-Mobile G2 smartphone, how it was going to boast the new HSPA+ network, and a sad excuse of a teaser pic. Now, we’re getting a live photo of what this upcoming Android device is actually going to look like.more →
Are you anxious to get your hands on the latest Google-fueled hotness? T-Mobile wants you to look its way, because a teaser site has been set up to promote the upcoming T-Mobile G2. They didn’t get terribly creative with the name, but it is meant to be the official successor to the T-Mobile G1.more →
Looking for a hot new Android phone to go with your T-Mobile service? It has now been confirmed that T-Mo will indeed be launching its new Samsung Vibrant smartphone this Thursday. You might already know it as the Samsung Galaxy S; this is just their variant on the hardware.
This beats AT&T to the punch by a few days, since the Captivate (AT&T’s take on the Galaxy S) won’t be hitting store shelves for a little while after that. It’s also bodes well for T-Mobile that there are shortages of the HTC EVO 4G (Sprint) and the HTC Droid Incredible (Verizon). I hope for T-Mobile’s sake that they have a good supply of these phones ready to go.more →
Taking aim at budget conscious consumers who are tantalized by all the touchscreen goodness they’ve seen fingering about with the HTC Incredible and iPhone 4, the LG Sentio will get your fingers tapping at a third of the price. Offered on the T-Mobile network, the Sentio’s low-price appeal has a little bit of high-end features. Starting off with a fairly large three-inch touchscreen display, complimented by three face buttons, 3G connectivity, GPS, and a 3MP camera.more →
This rumor just gets juicier and juicier by the moment. We’ve started to hear a few rumblings about a so-called “Project Emerald” and with T-Mobile soon to be equipped with quite the attractive new handset. Ever since Microsoft acquired Danger, we assumed that the Sidekick line at T-Mobile was dead. Apparently not. In fact, it seems that Project Emerald could be intimately intertwined with the old popular moniker.more →
As it turns out, AT&T isn’t the only one doing the smartphone thing with Garmin. T-Mobile USA is getting a piece of that navigation pie too with the announcement of the new Garminfone. It’s being offered exclusively through T-Mobile later this Spring. To avoid any confusion with the Garmin smartphone being sold through AT&T, T-Mobile has decided that its version will be called the Garminfone rather than the nuvifone. This also allows them to say that it is exclusive to their stable.more →
It’s quite clear that more people are buying the Apple iPhone than they are buying the Google Nexus One, but does that mean that the latter is not profitable for the search engine giant? Apparently not, because Google is very proud to say that the Nexus One is “a profitable business for us.”
This comes from Patrick Pichette, Google’s chief financial officer, during a company earning’s conference call. Clearly, the Nexus One is not the primary source of revenue for Google, but it’s not a loss leader either.more →
According to Vocal Laboratories, a research firm who conducts customer service quality information, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless are at the top of the list when it comes to customer service and satisfaction.
The study did not reflect network quality, but if customers aren’t happy with the network how could they be happy with the “customer service?” The study found that 66% of Verizon Wireless customers were “Very Satisfied”, T-Mobile met the 65% mark, 63% for AT&T and Sprint coming in at 59%.more →
Sprint today announced they will be a carrier of the Google Nexus One smartphone. T-Mobile was originally the only carrier to offer an “official” term plan for the Nexus phone, but after checking up on Google’s phone website T-Mobile’s offering is no longer available. A “Sorry, this item is temporarily out of stock.” on the $179 two year contract plan is nothing less than a coincidence. Sprint won’t be the new and only company to carry the Nexus One, yesterday’s announcement told us about Google’s plan to send the phone to AT&T and Rogers Wireless in Canada, but with sales slumping there’s not much of possibility for a shortage on supply.more →
Taiwan-based HTC Corporation brought the HD2 to the shores of North America just a few months after it was available in Europe and Hong Kong. An announcement of its unveiling was reported to us for March 16th, that date has come, and the successor to the HTC Touch HD is officially coming to T-Mobile March 24.
With the HTC HD2 being a pioneer of sorts. It was the first Windows Mobile phone with a touch interface and the second smart phone with the 1GHZ Snap Dragon processor, which makes it incredibly fastmore →
Google’s smart phone has arrived with a mixed bag of buzz and feedback. Now whether that’s a bad omen or a good one for the Search Engine giant remains to be seen.
This phone, with its snapdragon processor was designed to go head to head with the iPhone, Symbian and Pres in the market. Google like any proud mother won’t stop praising its phones merits and believes it’s more than a legitimate alternative to other smart phones. As Google’s Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette puts it, the Nexus one is a “Benchmark Setter.”more →
It may not be long before we see Google’s Android phone, dubbed the Nexus One, available on the Verizon Wireless network. If Google adds Verizon to the mix, you and I may get a competitive price – since T-Mobile will have to share their slice of the pie.
The rumor is that on March 23 the Nexus One will be availble to Verizon customers, making them the second U.S. wireless carrier to offer Google’s device. March 23 is coincidentally the first day of CTIA tradeshow in Las Vegas, coincidence, or not?more →
