Ah, the press invitation: the event that sends the wild gadget blogger into a frothing rampage of speculation and anticipation. Our latest guess-fest is provided courtesy of T-Mobile, which sent out press invitations to a July 10th New York City event this afternoon. There's no information on what might be revealed therein, and T-Mobile's typical pink marketing language isn't saying much. The only clue we've got is that it will, in the carrier's own words, include T-Mobile's "boldest moves yet."


Disclaimer: we at Android Police have absolutely no idea what's coming in this little get-together. The only upcoming star-studded phone release that's been confirmed for T-Mobile is the Sony Xperia Z -  when it launches on Magenta, it will be the only US carrier to offer Sony's slinky water-resistant flagship as part of its in-house phone lineup. The plural teaser would seem to indicate that they've got something more than just a single piece of hardware waiting in the wings. In any case, T-Mo is historically less likely than its fellow carriers to hold a major event for one phone that they've already confirmed (albeit with no date). Other sites speculate that the "bold moves" alluded to in the invite refer to an expanded "Uncarrier" model, building on the semi-contract-free restructuring the company went through this spring.

Or it could be a brand new Blackberry Bold. That would certainly be a bold move, though you could use other adjectives for it. We'll find out in a couple of weeks.

    "Bionic" said on the Droid-Life article that T-Mo is gonna pay off your ETF from Verizon to come over to their service. Whether that is true or not, it is a bold move. I don't believe it, but hell, that would be something.

    • Nick Schiwy

      That would require having T-Mo coverage where you live!

    • Freak4Dell

      That would definitely be a bold move, but I doubt they would have an event for that.

      Bionic is a troll (most of the time) fyi

    • ltredbeard

      They did this for me when I switched this year

    • yankeesusa

      I would definitely be up for that. If tmobile offered to pay me etf I would switch within the month.

      I'm pretty tired of paying for AT&T and we have good T-Mobile coverage here, so hopefully it's not just for Verizon.

  • Ryan O’Neill

    The time on the invitation says 2:30 pm.... They're bringing back Gingerbread!!! WOOHOO!!1!

  • TheWhiteLotus

    I would hope it's a new Blackberrhahahahahahahaha, I'm sorry I couldn't contain myself.

    Could be Nokia 925..

    T-mobile launching worldwide 5G network!

    • mechapathy

      Aren't we on to 7G by now?

      • Wyatt Neal

        Yea, but when it goes to 11G, then I'll start paying attention.

        • mechapathy

          Spinal T-Mobile already goes to 11G.

    Google and T-Mobile partnership for Google glass, launch date, pre-order and financing. I can dream right... I would definitely add a line if it happened though.

  • Paul_Werner

    Though I seriously doubt this would ever happen and it's not a huge deal if it didn't... it'd be nice if they get Google to allow 4G again on the N4 (I know, I know... it never officially was but it was disabled to the point of having to keep old software if you wanted to use it unofficially).

    To me that'd be more bold than announcements about possible contracts. Just my opinion though

  • Steven Green

    It's about Ubuntu Touch support. Case closed.

  • Swift

    I work for T Mo and you all are wrong...lol but from what I went through for training..its nuts!!!

    • swift

      If someone from here that writes for this wants to know you can email me...lol djswiftflz@gmail.com

      • Iggies

        saying "lol" always inspires confidence.

      • yankeesusa

        Can you stop already, no one believes you or cares. And no one wants to get on a spam list either.

  • Richard Yarrell

    Tmobile definitely rocks and is the place to be period.

  • Swift

    I work for T Mo and if who writes for here wants to know you can email me djswiftflz@gmail.com

    • yankeesusa

      Yeah okay. Even if you do work for them your just a minion that has to worry about selling up some plans.

      • Swift

        LOL A. Not a sales rep so no I am not a minion so thanks. I am a regional director. So no I dont have to sell anything. B. It has to do with our prepaid service.

        • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

          I'm a huge sucker for your $30 a month plan, so I hope they're only getting better.

  • Bob G

    Unless they are giving phones away for free with dirt cheap monthly no-contract unlimited plans, this is still yawn.

  • Cuvis

    I've been using T-Mo for years. I'm definitely intrigued by this.

  • mgamerz

    Blackberry Bold 22 amirite?

  • yankeesusa

    This is great news. With sprint finally finishing the softbank deal and clearwire finally theirs and now this, it is looking good for the more affordable companies. I hope they do well so they can put some pressure on the dictatorship style att and verizon.

  • yankeesusa

    I hope it has something to do with some new lte advanced phones and them saying that their lte network will be up by mid next year with end of this year seeing 50% completion. If its anything like that sprint better watch out. I'm already on the tip of switching even if I have to pay my etf.

    "Our boldest move yet."

    Am I the only one disappointed by not seeing any alphabets in bold?
