T-Mobile’s myTouch line has proven very popular over the years, especially due to the devices’ features, but also thanks to the quality to price ratio they delivered. Started way back in 2009, with the myTouch 3G that ran Android 1.5 Cupcake (!), the series has had its latest revamp in the fall of 2011, in the form of the myTouch Q, running Gingerbread.
Although more and more tech users are looking towards high-end devices these days, especially in the US, it seems that T-Mo will continue to push in the entry-level niche. Not one, but two myTouch phones will be released this summer, and at least one of them seems to be ready for a launch by the end of May.
While many Samsung Android-based smartphones and tablets are still (un)fashionably late to the Ice Cream Sandwich party, HTC is doing its best to keep its customers happy and updated. Less than a week after the Sensation 4G has received an Android 4.0 official OTA upgrade, the Amaze 4G is currently enjoying the same refreshing treatment.
T-Mobile’s exclusive device is getting the ICS update right on schedule, as it has been announced for a while, which is yet another reason for HTC and T-Mo customers to be happy with their manufacturer and carrier of choice.

It looks like T-Mobile USA is getting proactive in their attempts to mitigate the quarterly loss of postpaid subscribers. The number four mobile carrier in the nation has announced a new pricing structure for their prepaid mobile broadband service that should give customers a better bang for their buck.
T-Mobile lost 510,000 contract customers last quarter, so finding other ways to stay competitive has become a priority for the company. They gained almost 250,000 prepaid customers and 262,000 mobile-to-mobile customers during the quarter. While promising, it seems they are banking on the new pricing structure to further jumpstart the growth of prepaid customers.Plan [...]
As owners of the HTC Sensation 4G are gleefully receiving their OTA update of Ice Cream Sandwich, which has been available since May 16, we expect to hear the same collective sigh of relief from HTC Amaze 4G owners pretty soon. It seems we’re not that far off the mark when we said that ICS upgrade for the phone would come not too long after it lands on HTC Sensation 4G.
As can be seen from the updated support page for HTC Amaze 4G on T-Mobile’s website, the carrier is ready to roll out ICS for HTC Amaze 4G starting May 21. Since it’s an OTA update, all you have to do is check your phone for an update notification on the due [...]
If you’re familiar with Carly Foulkes, T-Mobile’s spokeswoman that has appeared in the carrier’s ads since 2010, but you haven’t watched the news lately, you might be in for a real shocker today.
“The cute girl in the pink dress” is now Bad Girl Carly and two recent ads promoting T-Mobile’s HTC One S are set to raise your blood pressure significantly in a matter of seconds. While the One S should have been the star of the new TV commercials, T-Mobile has risked a bit, attracting all male eyes on Carly, who is rocking a leather suit on an even sexier Ducati motorcycle.
We have a smoking hot young woman in a leather suit, a fantastic black-and-pink Ducati, and [...]
Aside from launching a controversial but exciting advertising campaign for the HTC One S, T-Mobile is reportedly making efforts to strengthen its smartphone line-up, in an attempt to get back in contention with the “big guys”.
T-Mo hasn’t done a very good job at picking up “hero” devices lately, the Galaxy S2 being pretty much the most noteworthy exception to that rule. A freshly leaked User Agent Profile hints at a new device coming to T-Mobile in the near future, and, while it might not be a “super phone”, it could actually turn things around a bit for the carrier.
Codenamed SGH-T699, the future Samsung handheld is shrouded in mystery, with the only technical [...]
“We are in close communication with T-Mobile to ensure that eligible devices are upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the coming months and will provide updates as we have additional details to share.” That was the only message Samsung had to offer T-Mobile customers last month, when it announced a list of US devices to be upgraded to ICS.
Needless to say, the message was received with reluctance and downright anger by most users, which started to believe that their Samsung gadgets will be completely ignored in the jump to Android’s latest OS version. Fear not, tech enthusiasts, because the list of devices in store for an ICS update has been updated and now [...]
T-Mobile USA has updated its support page for the HTC Sensation 4G, finally bringing some news on the Android 4.0.3 ICS upgrade that owners of the phone have been longing for. After promising early in the month that the update to Ice Cream Sandwich would be here “very soon”, the carrier is now ready to open its dessert bar on May 16.
As stated on T-Mobile’s website, the OTA update for the HTC Sensation 4G will roll out starting May 16. Aside from all of the features of ICS that one can expect, such as Face Unlock and re-sizeable widgets, you will also get HTC Sense 3.6 as part of the package. T-Mobile promises improved battery life performance as well.
It looks like T-Mobile has decided to take a swipe at AT&T and the iPhone 4S in their latest ad campaign, which isn’t really an original concept.
The ad begins with a fairly dim witted looking guy cruising slowly on a motorbike, meant to represent the iPhone on AT&T’s network. Along comes a motorbike at breakneck speed (yes, that’s the 4G one), with a hot lady at the helm, and she rips by in the blink of an eye. All the while, T-Mobile asks the viewer to contemplate the answer to the question: “If this is the speed of the iPhone 4S on AT&T, what does 4G speed on T-Mobile look like?”
If pictures are worth a thousand words and videos are [...]
Huawei might have changed its marketing strategy here and there and started to realize that it has to make a push in the high-end smartphone segment. But old habits die hard, which is why the Chinese are still churning low-end Android handsets. The latest entry level gadget to come from the makers of the world’s thinnest and the world’s most powerful smartphones is called the Prism and will be marketed as a T-Mobile exclusive device.
The T-Mobile Huawei Prism was unveiled yesterday without much fuss and will start selling off-contract in just a couple of days and on-contract in three weeks. The phone’s pricing is affordable by any standards and you will be able to get [...]
