    I've been reading on this website (phandroid.com) how the HTC Incredible is going to verizon, the HTC Supersonic is going Sprint... The Nexus One is going Verizon & AT&T.

    my question is this, How come everybody else is getting all the hottest phones and t-mobile keep a SAD collection of android phone for their customers? I visit the t-mo website and all you see is the G1 (already outdated), bunches of mytouch 3G, and Samsung Behold II. And then there is the Nexus One which is available thru google.

    my complaint is, okay so there will not be any special phones for T-mo? To me it seems like all the other providers are getting the latest and greatest while t-mo keeps watever phones... i STILL have my sidekick gekko and i seriously want something to replace it! However there is nothing to do so with!

    does any other T-mo customer feel this way?

    I know how you feel, I have felt that way for awhile, like Tmobile never gets good phones, they just always keep the same old simple phones and sometimes they'll get some cool ones. I have no idea why they do this. Maybe they can't support them on their next work cause their 3G isn't up and running everywhere, or they just can't get contracts with anyone because they saw how the Nexus One sales went when it was only with Tmobile and don't want to get with them. I'm not sure, but I don't like it. I wish they'd give some kind of indicator about what phones will be coming in the future.

    I agree, but take a sigh of relief.

    Most carriers just have 3.2 inch 500mhz android phones at the moment except for the Droid on Verizon. The "incredible" is all stuff that is coming in the future.

    T-mo will probably have these phone:

    Motoroi - Its supposed to be announced on march 29th, and it's the Droid without the keyboard. (available in South Korea)

    Sony Xperia X10 - hope the f_k T-mobile goes this one! 4"

    Dell Mini 5 - 5" phone.

    There should be a lot more, it seems from the past t-mobile doesn't announce it until like 2 weeks before.

    so another Motorola, a Sony Phone and a Dell? its kinda disappointing since i was hoping T-mo would get a HTC phone soon...

    i guess you can't get the best of both worlds, awesome phone with cheap plans and good high speed coverage... i really hope something comes up before my contract expires!!

    don't worry is all i can say, i have been saying that about sprint for MONTHS, and now within the past week it's 180'd like mad. i think t-mo has a very broad range of phones compared to most carriers who have select few but you'll get the good soon. you still have N1

    I saw HD2 this weekend. It's great, a real superphone, nice 4.3 inch screen, and its slim. I won't get it because I want an Android phone and it runs WinMobile, but it uses HTC Sense so it's pretty cool. I wouldn't know how difficult the Android OS Rom would be, but I'm sure there would be many problems (camera..ect)

    Nexus 1 is another t-mobile choice, you won't find it in stores, but it's powerful, and runs the newest Android release. I've never even seen this phone.

    i'm sure in colaboration with what is out there when the SS is released they will be able to mix and match files from that and the desire or some other current droid to make a working rom for it

    I really hope you're right Covert. Because if the Evo 4G turns out to be more than 250, I'll be staying with T-Mo and get the HD2 for 199. And hopefully change the OS to Android 2.1 as the WM market is not comparable to Android's.

    The HTC HD2 cannot run Android. So it may be a decent phone, but why would anyone want it on Tmobile if its just Windows Mobile, and its not even 7, its going to be stuck in 6.5 forever, literally, it will never get WM7.

    Are you sure about that? Doesn't it have the same 1GB snapdragon processor as well as other components as the Evo?

    [PROJ] Linux on HTC LEO / HD2 - xda-developers

    I figured if anyone would do it, it would be XDA. Saying the HD2 "cannot" run android is just a false statement. Also, just because it won't have an official win7 rom, doesn't mean you won't be able to flash a cooked rom, which you'll probably find in XDA as well (only a matter of time). If you are the type of person who won't root or use custom roms, you're right, but who keeps stock roms these days?

    ;)

    Let's just pray that Tmobile gets the Galaxy S with all of its 4 inches of SUPER AMOLED goodness.

    I know that there are roms for WM7, I have seen those, just google search HTC HD2 WM7, or something of the like, and there are lots of articles about WM7 roms for the HTC HD2, but as far as I know there won't be an official release of it from Windows.

    As far as Android is concerned, I would love for someone to show documenation of some kind for this, I checked a few days ago over at XDA and there was nothing about it. Nothing on Google, nothing on the best website for it. Things change quick, but who knows, I just haven't found anything on it.

    I guess I'm just sad that such a device with such specs sells itself short with its premier of WM 6.5 and a possibly bland future.

    I just hate Apple, love Android, and am sympathetic for Windows.

    I want to know why T-Mobile UK has so many awesome phones and Tmo US is getting the shaft?

    Here are the newly released smartphones, and you can take a look around and see that even beyond these 4 there are quite a few I'd be willing to import.

    First post!

    My contract isn't up until November so I am holding out hope there will be a device available by then that will keep me with T-Mobile. Coverage in Atl has been great so I don't see a need to pay a lot more on another network. Right now the lineup is weak and I definitely wouldn't stay if this is what will be on deck. Any insight into the Bravo/Desire? I keep reading about it coming to T-Mo and then AT&T. November is a long way away. By then we could have a 1.5 Ghz superphone out there! One can dream...

    Looks like that might have been an April Fools joke because the page is no longer available and the post is not listed on the site. Thank goodness. We don't need the iPhone to spread and have T-Mobile pull back on new phone introductions b/c they think the iPhone will gain them so much traction.

    Yeah I think you're right. That was a pretty intricate post though, and I had previously heard rumors of the iPhone going to TMobile.

    I think...

    AT&T uses 1900 for UMTS
    Most european/asian UMTS networks are 2100.

    T-mobile USA uses 1700/2100, so the 3G portion of phone would work in Europe, but most phones released there didn't come with the 1700 until now.

    What I meant by the iPhone being a fad is that there is a small percentage of people who actually purchase the iPhone for its features, display, cpu power, etc... They buy the phone because it's an "iPhone" and they thought the touch screen was neat because their friend/brother/coworker/dog had one. There are people out there who think all mp3 players are iPods for crying out loud.

    The iPhone is a fad and people who purchase it are guilty of poor consumerism.

    Haha, as much as I think my phone kills iPhone, and I'm a little angry that apple sued HTC, I do think iPhone is a great game-changing product . :) Its user friendly.. connected, Look at all the Apps, and songs you can download.

    But I hope that T-mobile doesn't get iPhone, they've filled that 'void', with innovation - great Android products, and hot phones like HD2.

    Well TMo needs to get something b/c I hate my cliq and I think that this phone blows. One of the biggest regrets I have is giving my Iphone to the wife who wont give it back.

    Unfortunatley there isn't another phone that tmo has that I would want b/c I felt that the other android smart phones were inferior for what I wanted. I'm soooo pissed that the n1 isn't in store b/c I couldn't imagine spending that much money on a phone that I can't test out

    I came to tmobile b/c at the time, verizon was behind(and expensive) when it came to phone production. Now tmobile has fallen well behind everybody

    Sorry for the rant but I just really hate this phone
