Sony Xperia Z smartphone soon. We've seen countless leaks, support documents on T-Mobile's site, and then last week they started teasing us with a device under water in a little teaser video. Today however, the official sign-up page has finally gone live.
UNcarrier approach went into effect back towards the end of March and it is now looking like the carrier also has a phase 2 and phase 3 in the works. All of the specifics have yet to be revealed for phase 2 and 3, however it looks like phase 2 may be coming in mid-July.
T-Mobile was the last carrier to enable 4G LTE wireless data into service, but it looks like as of today, it's not just limited to a few cities in a few states. According to Twitter and emails sent to many tech sites, there have been numerous sightings of LTE in Dallas, Denver, and Wichita. With this news, it looks like 4G LTE for T-Mobile is spreading fast.
T-Mobile has recently announced some price drops. The devices are all from Samsung and include the GALAXY S 4 as well as the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II. Basically, it looks like T-Mobile has dropped the price of entry by lowering the downpayment. The one catch, these sale prices will only be available for a limited amount of time. Specifically, they will be available from June 12th through July 13th.
T-Mobile has recently posted a short video on YouTube. The video measures in at just 23 seconds in length and shows little more than someone diving into a pool and then swimming a short distance underwater. That may sound a little strange by itself, but then we look back to the earlier rumors which have been leading up to an announcement for the Sony Xperia Z -- which just so happens to be a waterproof handset.
HTC has had several trade-up offers available for the One smartphone in recent months and it looks like they have since launched another. Except unlike the previous trade-up offers, this one is limited to a specific carrier. That carrier is T-Mobile but it should be made clear that this is only available for a very limited amount of time.
GALAXY S 4 smartphone might be the popular choice at the moment, but not everyone needs the best of the best or is willing to pay top dollar for a smartphone. Samsung's king of all smartphones last year, the Galaxy S III, is back on T-Mobile shelves but upgraded to support their new 4G LTE network. The device is available today and comes in at a great price too.
T-Mobile has yet to officially announce the Sony Xperia Z, however it looks like another piece of evidence has surfaced. Basically, it is looking like a release date is getting closer. This latest bit of evidence has arrived directly from the T-Mobile website, specifically on the support pages. The carrier has recently added quite a few how-to pages dealing with the Xperia Z.
4G LTE data speeds we get on our smartphones have come a long way in the short two years since LTE first hit the streets. I remember loving how fast that HTC Thunderbolt was, even though I was still in T-Mobile land. Now that most have 4G LTE including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and more, we want to see how fast yours is.
T-Mobile and MetroPCS merger has been completed, we are beginning to see the mixing of the two networks. While we have yet to see any announcement from MetroPCS, leaked details are suggesting the carrier will launch the BYOP (Bring Your Own Phone) program on June 12th. This will include GSM handsets and that means those users will be on the T-Mobile network.
