T-Mobile iPhone “speculation is heightening” according to Merrill Lynch

This week the folks at Merrill Lynch - specifically analyst Scott Craig - have suggested that the iPhone may finally be on its way to official carrier support from T-Mobile. This suggestion comes in the form of a note written by Craig that said "speculation is heightening" that Deutsche Telecom (owners of T-Mobile) will announce a deal at next week's analyst's day - that being 12/6 and 12/7 of 2012. Now we must sit back, wait, and dig our fingernails into our kneecaps in anticipation of a brand new HSPA+ iPhone 5.

Nexus 4 T-Mobile Review

Nexus 4 T-Mobile Review

The difference between the Google Play Nexus 4 and the T-Mobile Nexus 4 is neither in the hardware nor in the software, but in the cost and agreement you'll be making with T-Mobile - but that doesn't mean we can't give some more time to Google's own smartphone hero for Android 4.2 Jelly Bean - for science! First be sure to take a peek at our original full Nexus 4 review as done by our own Vincent Nguyen, then have another dive in with the slight differences between it and the T-Mobile edition - must be something for the massive difference in price, right?

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: November 23, 2012

Some of us are still recovering from our food comas, but luckily the weekend is here so most of us can use that time for recouping (or chowing down on leftovers). Let's recap the news from the day, shall we? Of course, today is Black Friday, with Apple kicking off a Black Friday sale of its own and the NPD saying that sales today could be what pushes tablet shipments above notebook shipments. We also heard from various companies that people were reaching for their phones and tablets on Thanksgiving to net some great deals, apparently not willing to wait until the Black Friday "festivities" kicked off.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: November 14, 2012

Welcome to Wednesday evening everyone. Today Samsung rejected rumors that it's been charging Apple a 20% premium on processors for iDevices, saying that since the prices are determined and agreed upon at the beginning of the year, it would be pretty difficult to change them.

T-Mobile HTC Windows Phone 8X Review

T-Mobile HTC Windows Phone 8X Review

The HTC Windows Phone 8X is without a doubt the finest Windows Phone machine HTC has ever produced, and certainly one of the most beautiful devices they've ever created regardless of operating system. Because we've already done a full HTC Windows Phone 8X review as the device exists on AT&T, the following look a the T-Mobile version will be shorter than your average SlashGear review - especially here since the differences between the devices are so incredibly few. Just as Samsung got wise with the Galaxy S III and having the same hardware and software build, for the most part, for carriers across the earth, so too has HTC kept the fighting "one design for all" spirit here with the 8X, a strong device from all angles.

LG Optimus L9 Review (T-Mobile)

LG Optimus L9 Review (T-Mobile)

Most of us know that when it comes to smartphones, it’s a constant struggle to find the right balance between power, looks, and affordability, with affordability normally losing out in the end. The problem most of the time is that the affordable phones don’t always look the best and typically don’t have the best hardware under the hood. If you want a phone that looks sleek and performs great, you’re going to have to shell out the big bucks, right? LG is attempting to challenge that idea with the Optimus L9, a new handset at T-Mobile that comes with the very manageable price tag of $79.99. The question is: can this phone deliver the goods at a budget price, or do the savings mean that the phone ultimately disappoints in other areas?
