T-Mobile to launch Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 on October 26th and rollout 6 devices on November 2nd
Actually. the fun and games start on October 19th with the launch of the Huawei T-Mobile Sonic 4G mobile Hot Spot. No pricing details have been released. That will be followed exactly one week later with the launch of the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 tablet. The T-Mobile version of Samsung's flagship tablet will have 4G connectivity through the carrier's HSPA+ network. Here again, pricing is unknown.
On November 2nd, the leaked calendar shows 6 devices are expected to be launched on that day. For those who love long shots, remember that we told you that November 3rd is the rumored launch date for Verizon's version of the Google Nexus Prime. We could say that the heavily awaited first Ice Cream Sandwich device might also be launching on other carriers around that date, except that Big Red is said to be getting an exclusive on the device for an undisclosed period of time. That would eliminate that model as being one of the 6 getting released that day. Guessing which 6 devices will be launched on November 2nd could be a fun game for the whole family to play on that next long car ride!
Finally, Tmo News obtained a screenshot that seems to show that T-Mobile will be offering a Pay-by-the-Day rate plan. Heading to the web site via the link below the PBTD heading revealed nothing. On the other hand, another image obtained by the site shows that someone at the carrier has been working on the idea and there appears to be $1, $2 and $3 a day options with the cheapest plan offering unlimited text, the $2 plan offering unlimited text and talk and the $3 plan allowing for unlimited text, talk and web. The plan seems incomplete as far as how much talk time will be allowed with the $1 and $2 plans.
If these images are all legitimate, T-Mobile employees and customers appear to have their hands full for the next few weeks.

Galaxy S II for T-Mobile launches October 12th, with a presale on the 10th so its not one of those six devices.

oh this'll be fun! i'm thinking...GSII, Amaze 4G, LG myTouch and that LG slider with the dual touch screens. HOPEFULLY there'll be a new high end Motorola to join in as well. AT&T, Sprint & Verizon is getting all the Moto Love in the forms of the Atrix, Photon & Bionic, all very respected phones on their respective networks.

the hercules comes out next week, so thats a no go... and if im not mistaken, the amaze is coming right about the same time.
Im just hoping they drop the Prime ASAP. With the crap snapdragon in the hercules, its on my pass list. Im thinking the prime will be my last phone for quite a while if its as nice as we all think its going to be... especially with the new rumors that it might be the new 1.5ghz 2nd gen Exynos chip. Geek nirvana? maybe.

but more than likely we will see some refreshes to the grandma-phone line up, since there hasnt been much change there except the gravity 4 aka gravity TXT.

Samsung releases 1.5GHz Exynos dual-core processor and 16MP camera CMOS for mobiles.

the new exynos 4212 chip. 25% more power, battery life, ect per clock setting. Clocked at 1.5ghz at the same time. Rumors have it possibly making its debut in the nexus prime. Other than my geeky desires, that would make more sense to me than an OMAP, as the nexus's have always had the best processor availible or introduced us to a new processor like the original nexus did with snapdragon. Nothing wrong with the OMAP, but it would definatly break the nexus tradition of being the top tier phone, first to new techs, ect.

There's something mentally wrong with iphone users. They do things just to make headlines. For example camping out in front of a store weeks ahead of launch. Now this author claims they're calling tmo to bitch. Now this gives me incentive not to ever buy one. Why? Afraid of becoming mental. Anyway feels good to eat mango and be sane. By the way, not everyone on tmo upset about iphone. Its wp7 too.

I'm sure some (most) of those people are hired by apple corporate in order to get free publicity, and it works every time. Most studies show that ~70% of the people in line for apple products are those buying for Asian black markets. Few "normal" people can takes days off from their lives to camp out in line. And if they are actual customers then that shows you that those people are not what studies show apple users to be--instead they are broke unemployed dweebs. Kind of what the UK study showed about iPhone users lol. . . generally their bank accounts are in the red.

its the same thing every year.. the whole "customers migrating to X carrier to get iphones".. which while there are those that do that, they are in the minority. I hear it every year from customers thinking of switching to att/vzw whatever for an iphone. But then when they do the cost comparison between their curretn plans, the plans required for the iphone, and the feature differences between iOS and android.. few ever switch.
