Nokia Lumia 521 Review

If you thought the Nokia Lumia 520 was good, boy are you going to have a great time with the Nokia Lumia 521. Essentially the same device as you'll be getting internationally, this T-Mobile iteration of the entry-level Windows Phone 8 device brings the same package (with slightly different radio connections and a few extra apps) to the USA, here with the same bright white back cover as we saw across the sea (one of three, as it were).

Huawei PRISM II coming to T-Mobile: all naming conventions coincidental

The Huawei PRISM II is coming to T-Mobile, this a smartphone that succeeds a relatively unknown original with the same carrier from months past. This device is not aiming to break the bank, nor is it headed to the top of the "must have" lists of any top-tier hero phone collects lists.

While earlier this year it was apparent that T-Mobile wasn't going to take their fourth place standing in the USA-based mobile carriers race as long as they could help it, it would appear that it didn't just end with the iPhone 5. Here T-Mobile has made the case for the Samsung GALAXY S 4 as well.

While the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit may look to be a brand new smartphone - complete with fancy blue accents - coming to T-Mobile this week, it's actually an ever-so-slightly modified version of the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini.

Three major carriers join “It Can Wait” campaign against texting while driving
