Today, the crew over at TMoNews scored some shots and a few details of a new Samsung device, unofficially dubbed the "Exhibit 4G". As to not waste any time, let's get straight into the specs (keep in mind this is all unconfirmed):
- 3.7-inch AMOLED display
- 1.4GHz ARM11 processor
- 5MP Camera with 720p video capture
- VGA front camera
- Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread)
That's pretty much all of the details that we have for now, but here are a few shots of the device:
Like I said, this is about as unconfirmed as it gets, so take it for what it's worth. Read More
On May 22, T-Mobile will be lifting the figurative data gate on its web70 and web50 plans, offering users unlimited data to go along with the unlimited talk and text that is already a part of the deal. As it stands right now, the web70 plan has a 2GB data cap, while the web50 plan only allows for a measly 100MB of data usage. While the latter will get the benefit of unlimited data, there will still be one restriction: the speed will be throttled after 100MB. Fortunately for web70 users, that plan will not suffer the same effect, so you'll be able to surf and download at 3G/4G speeds to your heart's content. Read More
A couple of weeks ago we told you how to get the G2x for $50 from CellHub (it jumped up to $100 shortly after we posted the article). If you still want to score a G2x for less than $100, but don't want to order from a vendor that you've never heard of, then you're in luck. Today only, RadioShack.com is offering the G2x for $99 with any qualifying contract. That's right, it doesn't have to be a new contract like most deals - The Shack wants to give this hook up to anyone that is eligible for upgrade.
Considering that this deal lasts for today only, and the G2x should see a Gingerbread update soon, you better grab it while it's hot. Read More
What's this that I have stumbled across this morning? It's none other than some pictures and video footage from This Is My Next of the T-Mobile LG G2x running Gingerbread! No, not a rooted, AOSP version of Gingerbread - it looks to be an official build.
Shortly after the launch of the G2x, T-Mobile said that it would be getting Gingerbread "soon". Of course, we all took that with a grain of salt because, let's be honest here, carriers aren't really the most reliable when it comes to updating their phones. If this video is indeed legit, and I'd like to believe that it is, then it's proof that T-Mo may be a cut above the rest. Read More
It's no secret that the acquisition of T-Mobile by AT&T is largely unpopular in the Android community. T-Mobile was the first carrier to offer an Android phone and has been very supportive of the development community as of late. It would be a real shame to let an Android-friendly carrier fall under the control of a company that has the absolute worst track record in regards to Android devices, and mobile service in general.
Well, why don't you get off your duff (not actually, you can stay seated) and do something about it? The FCC is considering the matter currently, and has just opened up to the public, asking for opinions. Read More
I'm a sucker for a good rumor, and I just can't pass up sharing this one with all of you. According to TmoNews, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II might be landing on T-Mobile. How this information came about, however, does make me a little skeptical (I said I'm a sucker for a good rumor, not that I believe every one that comes along).
The above image was taken from Adobe's website, and it appears to show a Galaxy S II on the T-Mo website. This has to be the real deal, too, because no one ever makes Photoshop errors, right? Read More
Remember the T-Mobile G2x that came out just two days ago? Well, it looks like the folks over at CellHub are offering an unbelievable deal on this brand new Tegra2 powered device: with a new two-year agreement, you can score this beauty for just $50.
If you have never heard of CellHub, don't stress, because we hadn't either. We decided to do some digging and, come to find out, these guys are most definitely legit, rocking an almost 5-star score on ResellerRatings.
Update: Up to $100 now. Congratulations to those who snagged a $50 G2x. Even at $100, this is still a great deal. Read More
Motorola DEFY owners, you are second-class citizens no more, as T-Mobile's latest OTA software update will infuse your devices with a fresh Froyo taste. Unfortunately, the 112MB upgrade won't free you from the shackles of MOTOBLUR, but it will bring some staple 2.2 features - including Adobe Flash compatibility, WiFi hotspot capabilities, and faster performance - as well as some Motorola additions, such as a task manager and LinkedIn integration.
As the topping on the cake, it appears that all DEFY owners are now able to get the update, not just those lucky enough to have been included in the first "stage" of the roll-out. Read More
Excited for the HTC Sensation? So are we - and while we can't make its release date come any sooner, we can tell you when the phone might well end up being launched.
According to a Google AdWords ad put up by HTC itself, the dual-core beast of a smartphone will be released on June 8th. Of course, HTC removed the ad promptly after it made the news, but screenshots like the one below live on.
The 6/8 theory is corroborated by a product shot of the Sensation which contains a weather widget citing the date as "Wed, Jun 8." Coincidence? Read More
The G2x isn't the only exciting high-end device making its Magenta-colored debut today; LG's 8.9-inch G-Slate is having its coming-out party on this fine Wednesday as well.
Now, T-Mobile would happily lure you into a two-year contract with an attractive starting price of $529.99, but a wise tablet buyer would immediately note that taking such a route would cost a total of $1250 over the next 24 months - not to mention the toll of being unable to upgrade to the latest and greatest in the rapidly changing world of tablets.
Off-contract, the G-Slate costs $749.99 at Magenta's online store - not bad, considering that Motorola's similarly-specced XOOM will run you $799.99 under nearly identical conditions. Read More
