T-Mobile myTouch HD – Dual Core, Android 2.2, Video Chat on “Largest” 4G Network

TMoNews scooped a marketing flyer from T-Mobile extolling the virtues of the upcoming “myTouch HD“, a phone so spec’ed out on paper that we want to either marry it, or be seriously concerned about it’s battery life.

Unpredictable 3G Coverage from T-Mobile on Nexus One

Update #5: Slashdot poster jtownatjunk.net made an interesting point in this comment, stating that cell phones are designed to constantly search for and lock into the strongest signal, not the fastest signal. Which was sensible logic up until about 2005 when high speed data networks started getting rolled out en-mass. Would be interesting if that […]
