T-Mobile is stepping up to the plate and competing with the big boys. Kinda.
The new myTouch 3G, which is manufactured by HTC and made exclusively for T-Mobile, will officially launch today (and Dr. Cell Phone repairs it). The Android software produced by Google is also featured on the phone.
This is big for T-Mobile. No, this is HUGE for T-Mobile. This is their iPhone 3G. This is their Blackberry Storm. This is their Palm Pre. If T-Mobile doesnâ€™t see results, their role as player for touch screen superiority will dramatically decrease. The major carriers all have their IT phone. And now, itâ€™s T-Mobileâ€™s turn.
Iâ€™ve always thought of T-Mobile as Cinderella. And not the one with Hilary Duff (A Cinderella Story). Or even Drew Barrymore (Ever After). Bare with me on this metaphorâ€¦
T-Mobile used to be called Voicestream. When Deutsche Telekom bought out T-Mobile, Voicestream died (and was eventually renamed T-Mobile). Voicestream is like Cinderellaâ€™s dad. Once he died, things were never the same.
T-Mobile had to start living (competing) with her cruel stepsisters (AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint). Her stepsisters treat her like dirt. Sheâ€™s an afterthought. They laugh at her and donâ€™t respect her one bit.
But now things are changing. And the myTouch 3G could be the glass slipper T-Mobile has been looking for all alongâ€¦
