Ep. 88: A trio of T-Mobile phones Video
If you don't mind its bulky appearance, the Samsung Comeback is one of the most feature-packed messaging phones T-Mobile has to offer.
T-Mobile is rounding out its feature phone portfolio with Samsung Gravity Q, a QWERTY slider with a 3-inch touch screen.
Our little Dialed In family is back together once again. After enduring some technical difficulties and travel nightmares, Kent and I are back from Barcelona to join Nicole in the studio where we reflect on all the news from Mobile World Congress 2010. If there's one takeaway from the show, it's that software will play a primary role in this year's smartphones, while hardware will take a backseat. In other news, AT&T is finally getting its first Android phone and Sprint's WiMax devices are coming but not as early as some say. All this plus the latest cell phone reviews on this week's episode of Dialed In.
At CTIA Fall 2010, Kent German takes a look at one of the first phones to have HSPA+ with Android 2.2, the T-Mobile MyTouch.
The Samsung Gravity 2 is more than just a normal messaging phone. It has GPS, 3G, and a HTML browser all for about $30 from T-Mobile.
If you're in the market for a basic, no-hassle T-Mobile cell phone, the Samsung SGH-T209 is a solid choice. Kent German takes a first look for CNET.
It wouldn't be a week in cell phone land if the Dialed In crew didn't have a lot to talk about. And since it's been two weeks since our last show, you can bet that this episode is chock full of cell phone news and reviews. Leading off is the CNET review of the iPhone 3GS. We're still getting through the lab tests, but we've combed through the new features in depth. Meanwhile, Bonnie enthralls us with a long list of major smartphone news including Flash Player 10 beta and T-Mobile's second Google Android phone. And elsewhere in the podcast, Bonnie sighs, Kent sings, and Nicole laughs at them both.
The Samsung Highlight is an entry-level touchscreen phone for T-Mobile.
If you don't mind the small keyboard and can get past the cringe-inducing name, T-Mobile's Samsung Smiley is an easy-to-use messaging phone.
Bonnie finally reviews the Microsoft Kin phones and let's just say it isn't too positive. We also discuss the recently announced Android phones -- the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Slide and the LG Ally -- plus a few other cell phone news this week.
