T-Mobile is not the only party interested in getting into a merger with super-regional carrier MetroPCS. Another major player, Sprint, is eyeing to make a bid for the smaller telco.
UK’s first 4G LTE network is ready to roll, but before anything, EE has to build a strong line-up of high-end phones to go with the new speeds. That doesn’t seem to be a problem anymore for the T-Mobile/Orange joint venture, which has officially announced the release of the Galaxy Note 2 on October 15.
There’s a Twitter account that you should all be following known as @evleaks. We don’t know who this person is, but they often share photos of devices that have yet to be launched. Their latest leak is the LG Optimus L9 for T-Mobile.
After a very short time talking, Deutsche Telekom and MetroPCS have made a deal. Deutsche Telekom will pay MetroPCS $1.5 billion dollars and the 6th biggest cell carrier will merge with T-Mobile. For now, the companies plan to remain separate entities and manage their different user bases under their current names. The deal is expected to be finalized in early 2013.
While 4G LTE networks tend to be the standard in the United States, Europe is still only making baby steps in replacing 3G with the next generation of download and upload speeds. Things are starting to get a move on in the UK however, where EE (formerly known as Everything Everywhere) is planning to launch 4G LTE in time for the holidays.
Although it might not be the most famous or well-established name in the online retailing business, Wirefly has made a name for itself these past few months with a bunch of exclusive deals and price cuts for Android phones.
Reports have it that Deutsche Telekom is planning to acquire super-regional carrier MetroPCS. While Deutsche Telekom’s planned sell-off of its T-Mobile subsidiary to AT&T last year did not push through, will the company succeed in merging T-Mobile with MetroPCS?
We talked quite a lot about the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G before its launch on September 19, but ever since then we didn’t hear much about the 4-inch slider. Despite equipping it with a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Krait CPU, Sammy didn’t manage to draw many tech users towards the mid-ranger, with the $150 on-contract price tag being slightly prohibitive.
It’s been a long and agonizing wait for Galaxy S Blaze 4G owners, but it now seems that the 4-inch mid-ranger is finally ready to get that much awaited software bump. And while the ICS leap means that the Blaze is still one step behind the times, I’m sure that most of you owning the phone ever since March 2012 will receive the news with unrestrained joy.
Everybody’s waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to hit the States, which is why we’re happy to let you know that the US release looks on schedule. No, we still haven’t heard anything official from Samsung or any one of the five carriers confirmed to sell the “beast”, but we have spotted three different versions of the device getting FCC approval.
