Currently, T-Mobile is telling support staff to not transfer customers to HTC regarding complaints about the 3G problems the Nexus One is having. It seems to be switching between HSDPA and UMTS whenever it feels like it. Hopefully there will be a fix rolled out soon and my hopes is that it is something T-Mobile can do server side to ease the pain. As with any phone pulling the battery for 10 – 30 seconds usually fixes the problem.
agoetz5201 has been busy baking up some ROM goodness in the Shadow forums. Specifically for the ‘07 Shadow which is our long time favorite phone. There are several versions to be found including spanish but this is my favorite so far. A simple installation app has been created and as long as you follow the instructions (FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS!) you should be on your merry way to sporting Windows Mobile 6.5 on your ‘07 T-Mobile Shadow. Who said good things don’t come in small packages? So head over to the forums and take a look at your new Shadow.
Pink is sending around a little email inviting all their best friends to a private party. I’m thinking it’s one of, or both, items of interest to us. Engadget thinks it’s the Magic +/or Cupcake, which I’m leaning towards. It could also be the unveiling of the Wing 2 as predicted (which would be a pleasant surprise). Chances are it’s more likely going to be Cupcake accompanied by a glowing Magic all dressed in white.
In case you were wondering about when the next magical device is coming to T-Mobile many rumors are saying Dash 2 for July 1st and July 22nd for the Wing 2. Both phones are Windows Mobile with the Dash2 being Standard (non-touchscreen) and the Wing 2 having a touchscreen.
The Dash 2 will be extremely similar to the Snap pictured above with some branding changes.
According to the documents on the FCC website, there’s a highly speculative release date of April 24th for the HTC Rhodium (Touch Pro2, Wing 2). For many loyal T-Mobile customers and Touch screen fans this is great news knowing that T-Mobile is finally updating their Windows Mobile Professional offering. Rumors suggest that it will probably be released with Windows Mobile 6.1 with an upgrade to 6.5 available.
The G2, aka HTC Magic, is making it’s rounds now sporting the T-Mobile USA logo. This is HTC’s newest answer to Nature’s call for more convergence. According to CPS and the white papers it is the first to sport both T-Mobile’s 3G and UMA. So we can have the best of both worlds! Of course it doesn’t have a physical keyboard which means it will have an on-screen keyboard. The on-screen keyboard is supposed to be a part of Cupcake (Android 2.0). The FCC docs have a confidentiality release date of June 15th, 2009 on the in-depth documents which may hint at it’s release date.
