WIND’s smartphone lineup allegedly leaked

wind-logo

The upcoming Canadian wireless entrant WIND has been pretty secretive about its plans other than the fact it wants to shake things up, but thanks to a tipster within the company, we might have just found out the handsets it will be launching its 3G network with. The first is the BlackBerry Bold 9700, the second is the HTC Snap, the third is the Huawei U8220, and the fourth is an unknown QWERTY slider from Samsung. Other than that, it’s alleged that WIND will start off with three n0-contract price plans, have no SAF, not charge clients for features like caller ID and voicemail as well as not bill for intra-Provincial long distance and all dealerships will be outfitted with Microsoft’s Surface. Sounds nice to us, but what do you think, Canada?

Thanks, Fil!

T-Mobile to hold events for the HTC Dash 3G and Touch Pro2 starting July 14th

T-Mobile to hold events for the HTC Dash 3G and Touch Pro2 starting July 14th

One of our T-Mobile ninjas gave us a heads up about some business events that T-Mobile will be holding in July. T-Mobile reps will apparently be on hand in seven cities to show off the HTC Dash 3G and Touch Pro2, two devices T-Mobile is hoping will strike a chord with both business users and prosumers alike. The best part? Everyone who attends the events will receive a free Dash 3G which just so happens to drop on July 15th. The Touch Pro2 is rumored to become available on the 22nd. We’ve got the complete list of dates below and they all still have room for people to sign up — or at least they did at the time this post was written.

July 14 – San Francisco, CA
July 15 – Chicago, IL
July 16 – Los Angeles, CA
July 21 – Arlington, VA
July 22 – Houston, TX
July 23 – Atlanta, GA
July 28 – Fort Lauderdale, FL

In other T-Mobile news, we’ve also been told that a new plan for businesses is coming soon and that it will include unlimited voice and data for $59.99 a month. Yes, please.

Thanks, FrankenBerry!

T-Mobile announces Dash 3G to kick off host of new devices for summer

A few days ago we told you that the upcoming T-Mobile Dash 3G that is scheduled to launch this July and now it has been officially announced by T-Mobile. The Dash 3G, which is also made by HTC, is set to kick off the launch of a few 3G devices for T-Mobile this summer as it continues to expand its high-speed network. So far, it looks like the specs we gave you guys are spot-on: HSDPA, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, GPS, Microsoft Outlook sync and it all runs on the Windows Mobile 6.1 platform. We’re still sticking with our July 15th launch date, but as of yet there is no word on pricing. We’ll be sure to keep you guys updated as soon as word hits BGR headquarters. Hit the jump for the full press release.

T-Mobile Dash 3G launching July 15th

T-Mobile Dash 3G launching July 15th

We just got our hands on this T-Mobile product sheet which, unfortunately has no handset photo, nevertheless clearly indicates that T-Mobile’s Dash 3G device (most likely an HTC Snap) will be launching in all channels on July 15th. Sadly there’s no price on here, but we’d wager that with a new 2-year agreement it won’t break the bank. Here’s a spec recap for those that are interested:

  • Windows Mobile 6.1
  • T-Mobile AWS 3G
  • 2 megapixel camera
  • GPS
  • 528MHz processor
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • microSD slot
  • Stereo Bluetooth

Any questions?

T-Mobile's HTC Dash 3G and Touch Pro2 training kicks off on June 16th

T-Mobile's HTC Dash 3G and Touch Pro2 training kicks off on June 16th

T-Mobile fans, we’ve got good news and bad news. The good news — internal training on HTC’s Dash 3G (Snap) and Touch Pro2 is set to kick off June 16th on the east coast. In other words, we’re likely very close to seeing both handsets get official. The bad news — training doesn’t wrap up until July 2nd in Baltimore/DC so the rumored July 1st release date for the Dash 3G is pretty much not going to happen. The rumored July 22nd launch for the Pro2 could be on the late side of things however, so it’s not all bad. Our ninja only has access to the east coast training schedule but assuming the rest of the country wraps up around the same time, we could see one or both of these handsets by mid to late June — because June isn’t already jam-packed with sweet handsets launching left and right. Woo!

Thanks, Dominic!

HTC Snap, Touch Pro 2 and more to hit T-Mobile this summer

HTC Snap, Touch Pro 2 and more to hit T-Mobile this summer

A simple post about the launch of T-Mobile’s upcoming Visual Voicemail service has revealed a proverbial goldmine of information about the Summer launch of several hot handsets for T-Mobile. In chronological order, we have the following phones and their respective launch dates:

  • Sony Ericsson CS8: 6/24/2009
  • T-Mobile Dash 3G (HTC Snap): 7/1/2009
  • Sony Ericsson CS5: 7/8/2009
  • Samsung t469 “Smiley”: 7/15/2009
  • Samsung t549 “XO”: 7/15/2009
  • HTC Rhodium (Touch Pro 2): 7/22/2009

Oh yeah, and there’s also a Visual Voicemail service launching on July 16th. Sadly missing from the list is the HTC Magic, aka the MyTouch 3G, whose marked absence from the list may possibly be explained by a pre-Summer launch date. No need to include the Magic if it will already be available before the end of June!
