T-Mobile on Tuesday announced the addition of two new unlimited plans to its portfolio. Dubbed “Even More” and “Even More Plus,” both plans afford subscribers with unlimited nationwide voice calling, unlimited messaging and unlimited data. Both plans also include 2GB soft caps, so customers who go over 2GB in a single billing period will have their data speeds reduced, or throttled, until the next billing period begins. T-Mobile says its 4G smartphone users average about 1GB of data each month. “Consumers today are looking for even more value and flexibility from their wireless plans,” said T-mobile SVP of Marketing, John Clelland, in a statement. “While data plans for many of our competitors continue to be very expensive, T-Mobile is lowering the price of our unlimited plans and offering more options, making it easier than ever for customers to step up to a richer mobile data experience on our 4G network.” The $79.99 Even More plan is available to contract customers while the $59.99 Even More Plus plan is available to customers on a month-to-month basis. Both plans become available for a limited time beginning Wednesday, April 13th. Hit the break for the full press release.
T-Mobile USA, Inc. today announced that new, single-line unlimited plans are available starting tomorrow for just $79.99 per month, with an Even More™ plan and a two-year contract, or $59.99 per month, with an Even More Plus™plan with no annual contract required. Available for a limited time, the new plans offer great value for new and existing customers with unlimited nationwide calling, texting and data on America’s Largest 4G Network™.
“Consumers today are looking for even more value and flexibility from their wireless plans,” said John Clelland, senior vice president, marketing, T-Mobile USA. “While data plans for many of our competitors continue to be very expensive, T-Mobile is lowering the price of our unlimited plans and offering more options, making it easier than ever for customers to step up to a richer mobile data experience on our 4G network.”
Combined with an extensive lineup of affordable smartphones, T-Mobile’s new Even More unlimited plan allows customers to save more than $350 per year on an unlimited smartphone plan, compared to similar plans from AT&T, Verizon and Sprint1. Customers have the flexibility to purchase any phone in T-Mobile’s lineup and sign up for an unlimited rate plan — with or without a contract term commitment.
In contrast to some competing offerings, T-Mobile’s new Even More unlimited and Even More Plus unlimited plans enable customers to use mobile data on their smartphones without incurring any overage charges. Consumers exceeding 2GB of usage in a billing month will still have access to unlimited data at reduced speeds until their new billing cycle starts. On average, T-Mobile 4G smartphone customers consume about 1 GB of data per billing month.
In addition to its unlimited plans, T-Mobile continues to offer one of the industry’s most affordable entry-level data plans, starting at just $10 for 200 MB per billing month. The company also strives to help customers on these data plans avoid surprise bills with SMS alerts when they are reaching their data limit.
The new $79.99 Even More unlimited and $59.99 Even More Plus unlimited plans are available starting tomorrow for qualifying customers. To find the T-Mobile plan that best fits their needs, customers can visit http://www.t-mobile.com.
Since we first heard about the HTC Pyramid smartphone, a 4G dual-core processor phone, rumored to be coming to T-Mobile, we’ve been getting quite excited. This sounds like a great phone but one of the things we’d heard that was rather baffling to us was that it would be running on Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
This sounded rather unlikely to us and we felt it was more likely to have Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense, as Honeycomb was an operating system specifically designed for tablets. We recently supplied you with more specs and then some pictures of this handset and also speculated about how much you’d be willing to pay for the Pyramid. Now we’ve heard a little more news about the operating system.
According to Adam Mills over on GottaBeMobile, sourced from TMO, the HTC Pyramid will be running on Android 2.4. Hang on though, that OS is not actually out yet. We previously heard the likely release date for the HTC Pyramid was May although GottaBeMobile are saying it could be June and by that time of course, Android 2.4 could be available. (We were expecting to see Android 2.4 announced at Google I/O on May 10 & 11. It’s possible then, that the HTC Pyramid could be the first to feature Android 2.4, which we previously speculated could be dubbed Ice Cream.
Apparently the HTC Pyramid is sleeker and lighter than the Thunderbolt on Verizon. We’ve already heard about the 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera so the fact that it looks as though it will have Android 2.4 as well makes it one that will be at the top of many people’s lists. The fact that TMO states the information comes from a “solid source” sounds promising so for now we’re prepared to hope it could be accurate.
GSM Arena also reports on the HTC Pyramid running on Android 2.4 and although of course this could be merely a minor update to 2.3 Gingerbread it could be a completely updated operating system. It could even be a mixture of Gingerbread and Honeycomb as previously hinted. You may also be interested in our look at the Motorola Droid Bionic vs. the HTC Pyramid. What are your thoughts on the HTC Pyramid and the likelihood of it being shipped running on Android 2.4? Let us know with your comments
For the Android faithful over in Germany, and especially the Sony Ericsson faithful, you just might like to know that the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo smartphone in red is now up for pre-order on Amazon although without an availability date in tow.
According to an article over on Ubergizmo and by way of GSMareana, the German version of Amazon is taking pre-orders for the Android 2.3 Gingerbread Sony Ericsson handset with an asking price of 345.81 Euros, roughly $480.
Spec wise the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo offers a 3.7-inch capacitive LED backlit touch screen, Sony Mobile Bravia engine, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 8 megapixel suto-focus camera with LED flash and 720p video, WiFi, AGPS, Bluetooth, 320MB internal memory, microSD expansion up to 32Gband 3.5mm jack.
There’s still no real confirmation as to when the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo may see release; however the word is that Sony Ericsson has mentioned previously that the Android device could possibly launch in March or Q2.
So any of our readers hoping to snap up the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo when it hits or are you waiting for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play?
