T-Mobile: We do not offer the iPhone

As customer questions surrounding the proposed AT&T and T-Mobile merger mount, the latter has published a customer-facing frequently asked questions page in an effort to educate customers about what they can expect, and not expect, in the coming months. One of the specific queries T-Mobile addressed is the availability of Apple’s iPhone. In order to dispel any notions of a T-Mobile iPhone, the company issued the following statement:

T-Mobile USA remains an independent company. The acquisition is expected to be completed in approximately 12 months. We do not offer the iPhone. We offer cutting edge devices like the Samsung Galaxy S 4G and coming soon our new Sidekick 4G.

It seems as though enough antsy T-Mobile customers have posed the question — in the last 18 hours alone — that it needed to be officially addressed. The company has also started a thread in its official online forums for concerned parties to air out their frustrations, concerns, and questions. More →

2.3 to be next major Android release from Google?

2.3 to be next major Android release from Google?

If you thought you would have to wait until Android 3.0 to see the next major revision of Google’s mobile OS, think again. In an Android support thread, discussing an issue with Android 2.2 and WPA enterprise wireless networks, an anonymous Google employee let out a little bit of a bombshell. As the post reads:

Yes, Android 2.3 is a “major release”, and this patch will be available then.

The “patch” the Google employee is referring to is a fix to allow WPA EAP authentication that was, apparently, broken, committed to the Android repository, and pushed out with Android 2.2. Sounds good to us, but what do you think Android 2.3 is going to be called? Our vote: Pavlova.

Apple's website outs iLife '11, new Macbook Air, mystery product

Ahead of its “Back to the Mac” media event scheduled for this afternoon, Apple’s own discussion forums have outed several of the company’s new products set to be introduced later today. Categories for iPhoto ’11, Garageband ’11, and iMovie ’11 all but confirm the existence of the company’s next iLife suite. A category with the heading “MBA” would — presumably — confirm the Macbook Air refresh that has been oft-rumored this week. Lastly, a category heading “Reserved 10 20″ is being displayed on the site; perhaps that one more thing… thing? Hit the jump to check out the other images. More →

Apple removing links to Consumer Reports study from forums

Apple removing links to Consumer Reports study from forums

Consumer Reports logo

The Unofficial Apple Weblog is reporting that moderators of Apple’s support forums are deleting discussions and links to the Consumer Reports study released yesterday. The report stated that CR could not recommend the iPhone 4 due to an antenna glitch that the company feels Apple needs to fix. Users are reporting that more than one thread (TUAW reports six) have been deleted from Apple’s forums thus far; you can check out the cached version of one such discussion here. The iPhone 4 antenna situation is a PR nightmare for sure, and, for whatever reason, Apple seems hell-bent on making it worse. More →
