New T-Mobile Sidekick

Earlier last week, T-Mobile confirmed that they will relaunch their Iconic Sidekick gadget but this time running on the Android operation system.  The device will also be running on T-Mobile’s 4G network which will hopefully be available in more places when it’s released.

Not much else is known about the phone yet, all we know is that it will be released sometime early this year.

New Google Nexus S is here!

Earlier today, the new Google phone, the Nexus S,  was launched.  It seems as though many people were surprised that it was announced in only a simple blog post. Many, including me, thought the phone would be announced on December 7th when Google releases its first operating system, ChromeOS. Never the less, the phone is here and will be available for purchase at your local BestBuy store for $529 or $199 with a new T-Mobile two-year contract.

The phone itself will have a 4 inch Super AMOLED touch screen.  With a 800×400 screen resolution. This itself is a difference as that many of today’s smartphones have only a 3.5 inch screen.  But anyways, the phone will also include a 5 megapixel camera with an LED flash. There will also be a 3.5mm headphone jack for all of your music listening needs.

As for inside the phone, the Nexus S will run on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) on a 1GHz processor making this the first phone to have/run on Android 2.3.   Besides this, the Nexus S will come with 16GB of flash memory and will come installed with Adobe Flash.  The phone, like other smartphones, will have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS on it as well as all of the apps your heart could possibly desire.

Overall the Nexus S looks to be a good phone.  I think that people were expecting a lot more but none the less, it looks pretty good.

New affordable smartphone for only $30?!?!

Word out on the street now is that T-Mobile will be announcing a new smartphone to their lineup.  The phone is called the LG Optimus T and will only cost $30!

The phone itself has an incredibly slick design considering the cheap price. What makes it awesome is that it runs on Android 2.2, has a 3 megapixel camera and also has a 3.2 inch touch screen. Besides all of this, the phone also includes the newest texting method called swype. Not bad for $30!

The phone goes on sale Wednesday, November 3rd for $29.99 with your choice of color (black or burgundy).  Of course to get this price you will need to sign up for a two year contract and there will be a $50 mail in rebate.

This phone looks pretty sick considering the cheap price.  Besides the slick design, it also runs on the latest Android software and has a 3.2 inch touch screen.  If you have a low budget and need a new phone, I would definitely recommend this one.

T-Mobile G2 unveiled, more surprises coming our way

Earlier today, T-Mobile announced their newest phone, the G2, which will be available for purchase later this month. Many reviewers have given this phone high reviews which can be a very good sign for the brand new HSPA+ high speed network the G2 runs on (this is the first phone to ever use HSPA+).  No price has been announced yet but rumors say that it will be around $200 with a two year contract, and $500 without one.

The phone is considered to be a direct competition to the iPhone(s) itself.  The G2 will come with Android 2.2 making it completely up to date.  The phone will also have a 5 megapixel camera with a very bright LED flash and autofocus.  The large memory on the G2 also allows the user to record videos in 720p HD.  Also, the G2 comes with 4GB of internal storage as well as an 8GB memory card, giving the user the option of upgrading it to 32GB.  The processor on the phone is an 800MHz Snapdragon giving you quick speeds while navigating through the phone.

I am looking forward to this phone a lot.  The G1 provided a great competition to the iPhone as well as making it the first Android device but now with upgrades, more apps, and a better phone all around, it will be very interesting to see what this new G2 is going to be like.

What do you think of the T-Mobile G2?  Are you for Android or iPhone?
