According to bignews.biz, the Motorola Milestone, also known as the Motorola Droid in the United States, is on its way to T-Mobile in the UK. Available only to contract subscribers, the Milestone will be available on a range of price plans, some of which will offer the phone itself for free.
The Milestone is virtually identical to the Droid, offering the latest version of Google’s Android OS, along with an excellent processor, 5MP camera and 3.7’’ touch-screen. The Milestone comes with Motorola’s own GPS navigation software to replace Google’s turn-by-turn equivalent, and also supports multi-touch in the web-browser.
“This new launch means that there are now more than [...]
Images and specs leaked to DroidDeveloper begin to unravel the mystery surrounding the rumored MyTouch Slide, a QWERTY-packing side slider headed to T-Mobile. The MyTouch Slide appears to be standard slider with an ARM11 CPU (rumored to be the same 528MHz Qualcomm processor seen in the Magic), a 320 x 480 display, an optical trackpad, a camera of unknown resolution with LED flash, an easily accessible microSD card slot, and a 1,300mAh battery. The MyTouch Slide is expected to debut with T-Mobile on May 17th. Hit the jump for the full size images.
Rumored to be announced at next month’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Spain, the phone to the right is going by the codename of “Zeppelin”. This makes little sense as this phone has also been going by that name and has been made very official as of late (although since ditching the Zeppelin title). For now, we will call it the Motorola mystery until it’s formal announcement arrives. Specifications are said to include MOTOBLUR running on 2.0 or 2.1, a 5 Megapixel camera, a 3.2-inch HVGA display, GPS, and touch sensitive buttons below the screen.
The most interesting part of this picture is the Zune-like trackpad situated smack dab in the middle [...]

Google came out today and confirmed that it is working on a software patch to address the 3G connectivity problems that some Nexus One users are experiencing. Google is currently testing the patch and will roll it out as an OTA update to handsets in the next few weeks. Google deftly points out that not all 3G issues will be improved by the fix and that some of the problem stems from T-Mobile’s weak 3G footprint which leaves many users right on the verge of 3G coverage or without 3G coverage. Google can not force T-Mobile to expand it’s 3G network to appease Nexus One customers but it can release a handset with AT&T friendly 3G bands (Hint, Hint). Getting the Nexus One [...]
Todd Haselton over at our sister site MobileBurn.com, got a hold of the new Fender Edition of the T-Mobile myTouch 3G and shot a quick video unboxing of the phone and also demonstrated some of the music apps, like the drum kit app and the guitar app.
Something fishy is going on at HTC that leds some of us to believe that bad information is being leaked on purpose. Perhaps HTC is getting tired of all their phones being leaked well in advance of their official announcements. Two cases have recently popped up showing inaccurate information that has been reported widely by most technology and mobile blogs, including us.
We reported on the HTC Supersonic last week being rumored to possess 4G capabilities. This screen, allegedly of the HTC Supersonic was sent to BGR from a “new tipster”, but there are some odd features. T-Mobile is the carrier listed, they run a GSM network, Sprint was said to be carrying the [...]
Early 2010 may be an exciting time for Android fans on T-Mobile. According to TmoNews, the MyTouch 3G is getting a small refresh with the addition of a 3.5mm headphone jack and will be launched on February 10th in black and white. The MyTouch Slide, an HTC Magic with a QWERTY keyboard, will be hitting the shelves on May 17th in black, red and white. Last but not least is an unknown Motorola handset dubbed the Zeppelin, powered by Android, and expected to launch March 10th.
In a speculative short and sweet piece, it would appear as though the G1 is scheduled for an update to Android 2.0 by the end of January and that the G2 will update to 2.0 by the end of March. This news comes via Twitter where a screen-grab has been circulated showing an ‘official internal t-mobile forum’ post by a moderator.
The post itself is not in English and it is possible that these ‘updates’ are only available for the country where this T-Mobile post originated, which is The Netherlands. The moderator who made the post does add ‘dit alles onder voorbehoud’ which means ‘all this with reservation, of course’ but promptly adds a winky smiley face to give the impression he [...]
Back in early October 2009 we covered an interesting story regarding a Fender branded myTouch 3G. Things have now come to fruition with this device and we can expect to see it land on January 20th. A trip to Fender’s website reveals that Eric Clapton is endorsing the phone, and we should find a copy of a number of well known hits such as “Wonderful Tonight,” “Layla,” “My Father’s Eyes” and “Rock ‘n’ Roll Heart” already preloaded onto the device.
The device also comes packed with a number of other songs by artists including Avril Lavigne and Wyclef Jean but for those that like a customized looking device, there [...]
