T-Mobile pegs June 5th for launch of HTC One and BlackBerry Q10

T-Mobile pegs June 5th for launch of HTC One and BlackBerry Q10
Earlier on Tuesday, we told you that the BlackBerry Q10 would be launched via T-Mobile on June 5th. The device will require a down payment of $99.99 and 24 monthly installments of $20. That works out to a total cost of $579.99 for the QWERTY-equipped device. As we pointed out before, T-Mobile originally was not planning on offering this phone, but something made the carrier do a 180 degree change.

Meanwhile, the nation's fourth largest carrier will be offering the HTC One nationally on June 5th. Currently, HTC's flagship Android model is available in just 300 stores, which was ok considering that the Taiwan based manufacturer was having production problems. But now that the company is ramping up production and has sold over 5 million units, it is time for the carrier to go coat to coast with these puppies.

If you are a T-Mobile customer, or are heading in that direction, you have two more phones to consider next Wednesday. You have the sleek and sexy aluminum unibody of the HTC One and its 468ppi pixel density or the QWERTY equipped BlackBerry Q10 with the square 3.1 inch 720 x 720 display. Which way are you leaning?

How long? How about never?! They will continue to bleed customers and their new plan isn't saving them. Nor is the iPhone.

The only reason Sprint is still #3 is because they give discounts to businesses and im pretty sure that every government phone runs on Sprints network.

Oh my God. Sprint sucks so bad. I have a HTC One on Sprint and a Note 2 on T-Mobile. I live in Seattle and I often have to create a hotspot with my T-Mobile phone just so I can download anything on my Sprint phone. Even when I get an unofficial LTE connection file downloads are unreliable. Sprint is pathetic.

Damn I'm loving T-Mobile with my $30 5gb data plan on my HTC One which destroys the GS4 and iPhone5 in every category except daylight camera performance.

I dont care how cheap your plan is. Tmobile is by far the worst carrier for coverage and service and let alone the false advertising for 4G and people buy into it.

@apiskula I have to agree with you. I have had Tmobile for the past seven months, and can't wait to change carrier. T-mobile has to be to most unreliable, spotty network in the country; in one square block, you can go from 4G to 2G, to no connection. Everyday I have to reboot the phone to lock to the signal, and don't get me started about indoor service. Moreover, their crappy service shouldn't cost more than $45/month.
