T-Mobile cameo Reviewed: Great Frame with a few network glitches

The T-Mobile cameo might have featured big in the carrier's holiday announcement yesterday, but it's actually been a long time coming.  Originally announced as the Parrot DF7700 back in October 2007, the 7-inch, 720 x 480 digital photo frame allows you to load images not only via a memory card but from MMS and email messages thanks to its integrated cellular modem.  Yahoo! Tech have been putting the $100 frame through its paces.

T-Mobile USA Q3 2008 financial figures released

T-Mobile USA's Q3 2008 financial results are out, and if you're anything like me the first thing you'll be scanning through for is sales performance for the recently-launched T-Mobile G1 Android phone.  You'll be disappointed, though; the HTC-made Android device is mentioned only briefly, and with no specific finances attached.  Instead, we'll have to make do with the news that T-Mobile USA ended the quarter with 32.1-million total customers, having added 670,000 in that three-month period; that's up from the previous quarter, but fewer additions than Q3 2007.

T-Mobile USA 3G coverage broken down by city

T-Mobile USA have announced further expansion of their 3G network, with less than a week until their flagship internet cellphone, the Android-powered G1, is released on October 22nd.  The numbers certainly seem to have shot up since the last count, but a lot of that is down to a different way of expressing coverage areas.  Having received many calls asking for city-by-city breakdowns of 3G availability, the carrier told SlashGear, they're now shifting to referring to coverage by cities.

Andy Rubin writes goodbye letter to Android partners

Andy Rubin leaving the Android team was definitely the most shocking news of the day. He was the person who started the entire movement, from mentioning it to Google back in 2004, to releasing the first Android smartphone, the T-Mobile G1, in October 2008. Now Android is the most widely-used mobile operating system today, with over 1.35 million activations a day, and a total of 750 million Android devices being activated altogether.

Android turns 5 today

It may be hard to believe, but Google's mobile operating system, Android, turned just five years old today. It feels like it's been around forever, but it was only five years ago when the Open Handset Alliance, consisting of a handful of technology companies (including the owner of Android, Google), unveiled a beta of the Android mobile operating system with the goal to develop open standards for mobile devices.

LG rejected Android pole position insider reveals

LG, not HTC, was to be Google's original partner on the first commercial Android smartphone, according to the latest industry rumors, with Android chief Andy Rubin being forced to turn to the then-little-known Taiwanese firm after LG backed out of the deal. Although negotiations had begun in early 2007 for hardware partners, a source tells the WSJ, first-choice LG opted out midway through the year leaving HTC to pick up the reins. It's a decision which hindsight suggests did LG no favors, given HTC subsequently rode Android to its current prominence.
