T-Mobile Shares More Details About First HSPA+ Phone
Let me see if I get this straight...
2) T-Mobile is releasing a phone without added bloatware (see HTC Evo and Droid X/Incredible/2)
3) T-mobile isn't crippling the phone? (See HTC Aria and Samsung Galaxy S series.)
Every Android handset sold on the market right now is a pile of garbage now that the original Droid (which I did not like) and N1 (which I did) are gone. I wonder how well the processor will perform (hopefully well).
I would never have t mobile as their data is weak and their plans are complicated and expensive.
The data is solid, but depends on your location. If you're in an HSPA+ city that this phone can take advantage of, you're going to fly. Even the 3G and EDGE have improved, even in the last few months from my experience as a user. The plans really aren't all that complicated or expensive anymore. $30 for Android data, and it's still unlimited. None of this tiered data business. U.limited talk text and web with a subsidized phone is $99.99/mo, unsibsidized it's $79.99. At a savings of $240 on a 2 year contract, depending on the taxes in your area, you might actually be better off signing an agreem...

According to Phonescoop, engadget, C-Net and many many other sites T-Mobile has the fastest network in the US, (including Sprints "4G") and thats only their HSPA! This phone will take advantage of HSPA+ which it TWICE as fast!
and their plans are complicated and expensive
😳 are you kidding? they have a total of seven plans, 3 for individuals and 4 for families. And they are the LEAST expensive carrier you will find in the U.S. (for most people, there are a few people who benefit from a couple of Sprint plans)
This+30 data only plan (and configure it to be VOIP with google voice, makes it really tempting.
First real phone to tempt me from the Droid.
Even More Plus 500 with unl text and web for $59.99 - unsubsidized price of the phone being $499.99.
Thanks for the retail clarification.. Not sure I can justify spending $500 on it.. we'll see.
I think all carriers should have at least one stock Android smartphone
I have exclusively been a windows mobile user for about a decade now.
Sorry to hear that 🤣
"The Snapdragon Processor is like having a 1000 lane highway that you can send One car down each lane every second. The Scorpion processor only has 800 lanes, but you can send 6 cars down each lane every second.
which highway is better?"
Also a slower processor is more battery efficient. This is why my Motorola Droid phone is better at processing high end graphics and the like (clocked at 550mhz) than an HTC incredible with a snapdragon. Speed isn't everything.
I'm not on tmobile, I'm not what you would call a Tmobile fanboy and I am SO excited about this phone it's not even funny...
The G2 looks like it's hopefully taking the same approach as Apple has with the A4 of focusing on a more efficient processor that's able to scale better.
simple math would tell you that t-mobile plans are less than any other carrier. sprint has a few that are lower ( i work for sprint escalations) so stop hatting
No, I'm on AT&T and have a decent enough corp discount that it makes little sense to go to TMO. But, if it wasn't the case, TMO and Sprint would be real viable alternatives.
Same for me; my discount with Verizon gives me the incentive to stick with 'em.
