Nexus 4 sales with T-Mobile in recent history. The carrier has dropped the handset to $200 and even $50 on a two-year agreement, however for this weekend -- the price has dropped even further. Simply put, T-Mobile currently has the Nexus 4 available for free. The catch is that the handset is free on a two-year agreement and after a mail-in rebate.
Nexus 4 smartphone or Nexus 7 tablet. The key here though, while this new tool will make things a bit easier, it doesn't offer the most important part. More on that in a second though. Google has added Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 locator pages and as the page reads, it will help you "find a Nexus 4 near you."
Nexus 4 direct from the Google Play Store and avoiding the contract, however we realize that cost is often an issue and that being the case -- it is hard to argue with a $50 purchase price. Granted, that is $50 along with a two-year commitment, however that somehow seems much nicer as compared to the regular T-Mobile purchase price of $200. Basically, for a limited time, T-Mobile has the Nexus 4 selling at a deep discount.
T-Mobile have been working diligently to get their own 4G LTE network up and running to compete with AT&T and Verizon. While their current 42 HSPA+ network is quick, it still isn't quite 4G LTE. We know T-Mobile is planning to push their upgrade hard in the early parts of 2013, and a new leak shows the Galaxy S III might be first to the plate come March 27th.
Samsung announce the Galaxy S III Mini, which came back in October of 2012. We also later learned that Apple was dropping that particular handset from the lawsuit with Samsung provided they did not offer it for sale in the US market. Of course, that does not necessarily mean that Samsung cannot offer a variant of that handset with another name.
T-Mobile has detailed the latest software updates for the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy S II smartphones. Neither of the updates are what we would consider major, but that said, it is still nice to see them both getting some attention from the carrier. The Galaxy S III update is pretty straight forward, however those with a T-Mobile Galaxy S II may not necessarily have an update ready just yet.
T-Mobile is up to the challenge faced with thousands of football fans tweeting, sharing, and plusing, boosting its 4G network in New Orleans before kickoff.
T-Mobile is dangerously close to launching its 4G LTE network, and today, some users in Kansas City are reporting that the company has at least partially flipped the switch. One T-Mobile user is claiming on the XDA Developers Forum that he now has access to the company's 4G LTE network, putting it through Speed Test and showing the outcome to the world. The results will probably be underwhelming to those who are used to blazing fast 4G LTE, but there's a pretty good reason for that.
Samsung Galaxy S II that graces the T-Mobile network is receiving a quick software update today. Details have confirmed T-Mobile is pushing an update out over-the-air as we speak for the handset, although it's still running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We have all the details on this small bug fixer after the break.
