People have been talking about Isis Mobile Wallet for quite some time. After many release dates that have come and gone, it has been announced that Isis will go live in a testing market on October 22nd. The markets include Austin, TX and Salt Lake City, UT. The only phone slated to receive it is the Droid Incredible 4G, but other devices will receive compatibility as time goes.
After showing a great interest for MetroPCS , Sprint reportedly will hold off making any counterbid offer until more details of the T-Mobile agreement surface. Seeing that the proxy filing made by T-Mobile would be out in a month or two, Sprint may want to use such information to its advantage before approaching MetroPCS.
We have known for a while now that T-Mobile is getting the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, even if they had yet to officially confirm the news. It is now official, though we still know very little about when it is coming or how it will be priced.
Last week Android Authority caught wind of some new information from @evleaks that suggested T-Mobile was preparing to release the LG Optimus L9. Today we have official word that T-Mobile is bring the budget handset to its network this fall.
We all know that Samsung has scheduled a U.S. media event on the October 24 to announce the second coming of the Galaxy Note in the region. Moreover, the Android manufacturer has already confirmed that no less than five American carriers will launch the Galaxy Note 2 by mid-November, although we don’t have release dates for any of them.
Despite being seen as part of the US carriers “Big Four” by everyone, T-Mobile hasn’t exactly had the most prodigious and quiet year. First, there’s been talk about a merger with AT&T, which should have resulted in one wireless service giant almost impossible to compete against.
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.
