HTC-One-S-Final

If you're waiting for the One S to hit T-Mobile, a new piece of information just hit the scene that may be of interest to you. This particular piece of information clearly shows the release date for the device: April 22.

You know the drill with this sort of thing, though: this is just a rumor and it could change at a moments notice. With that said, this leak appears to be pretty official, so it looks like T-Mo is pretty dang close to getting its first HTC device with ICS (if the Amaze or Sensation updates don't roll out first, that is).

Good news for T-Mo customers with either the HTC Sensation 4G or the Amaze 4G: ICS is coming your way... sometime in the future. T-Mobile just updated its support documents for each device stating that they will be getting Ice Cream Sandwich, but it's just not sure when that's going to happen.

There are no other details available at this time, either - but it's still nice to know that Magenta loves you enough to go ahead and put the info out there that you will be getting ICS.

Google Wallet is a great idea - in theory. In practice? The service has been plagued with problems; slow adoption, a lack of NFC devices, the existence of ISIS generally, and a public image crisis after security concerns. The biggest problem, though, has been the decided unwillingness of carriers (except Sprint) to support it.

That's because everyone but Sprint is banking on Isis, which has over $100 million in financial backing from the likes of Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile.

Bobsled users can now connect with friends from their Android-powered tablets, thanks to Vivox and T-Mobile. For the uninitiate, Bobsled is a service developed by T-Mobile (in collaboration with Vivox) which aims to let users connect to their friends via internet calling or messaging for free.

Bobsled's app allows users to log into Facebook and connect with anyone from their friends list at the touch of a button, allowing for chat, voice messaging, and calls to land lines or mobile phones in the US, Canada, or Puerto Rico.

Looks like a handful of undisclosed T-Mobile stores will be getting their hands on the recently announced Samsung S Galaxy Blaze 4G on March 21 - a full week ahead of the nationwide release of the device (March 28th). The Blaze is one of the fastest smartphones to hit T-Mo's HSPA+ network, rocking some pretty decent specs (sorry, no word on RAM or storage capacity at the moment):

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread (will likely be updated to Android 4.0)
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 Dual-Core Processor clocked at 1.5GHz
  • 3.97" Super AMOLED display
  • 5MP rear shooter with 720p video capabilities
  • 1.3MP front-facing camera
  • Expandable storage via microSD slot

If the Blaze sounds like the smartphone for you, you'll be able to pick one up for $149 after a $50 mail-in-rebate and two-year agreement.

Mobile payment providers. Yeah, I'm already getting a little sleepy thinking about them, too. Let's face it, they're not the most exciting topic in the world, but whenever we talk about how people spend their money, you know there are lots of companies out there eagerly eying the potential of various new payment technologies with great interest. Among such companies are cell phone carriers, and the reason why should be obvious: smartphones with NFC are ideal platforms for next-generation payment systems.

Last week, the CyanogenMod team launched the first CM9 nightly builds for the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, and Motorola XOOM. As of today, the following devices also have CM9 nightly builds available:

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi and I/O Edition (download: p4wifi) - yay for the latter, as it seems Samsung completely abandoned it - I believe mine is still running 3.1 with no updates in sight.

HTC has just unveiled its new 2012 One flagship series of phones, at least one of which T-Mobile USA is going to introduce in the United States this spring - the HTC One S. Of the three variants announced today, the One S is the thinnest - it's only 7.95mm thick. In fact, it's so thin that T-Mobile has never carried another phone that could beat it in that department, which it was quite happy to highlight this afternoon.

Wow, what a year 2011 was for T-Mobile. We watched as AT&T tried to purchase T-Mobile USA to no avail, while Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T all launched the iPhone 4S and made progress towards their own respective LTE networks.

In fact, the latter two items hurt Magenta so much that its revenue dropped 3.3 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011. Ouch. Don't underestimate the underdog, though; T-Mo has a plan.

Remember back in December when Verizon announced its plans to buy a truckload of spectrum licenses from several cable companies? T-Mobile does, and they're not happy about it.  The fourth-largest US carrier told the FCC that the deal would allow Verizon to "accumulate even more spectrum on top of an already dominant position."

Verizon fired back with the time-honored legal defense of "Well, why not? Nobody else is using it!" In a response to the filing, Verizon claimed that the deal would make use of spectrum that is currently going unutilized by the cable companies.
