T-Mobile officially announced today via press release, that they are introducing Name ID, the first caller ID service for a U.S. carrier. T-Mobile customers, on selected smartphones like T-Mobile Exhibit and soon myTouch 4G Slide, will have the option of true caller ID functionality with the Name ID service, powered by Cequint. The service begins as a 10-day free trial, but then requires a monthly of fee of $3.99 for ongoing use of Name ID.
T-Mobile is very well known to release a press news at midnight and this time to announce 2 new Android phones. The Exhibit 4G (the first one) comes with a 1GHz CPU, Android 2.3, a 21Mbps 4G radio, all wrapped up in either violet or black. It also has Samsung’s Media Hub, Doodle Jump, Bejeweled 2, and Scrabble preinstalled to keep you occupied between phone calls and messages. The Exhibit 4G checks in at $79.99 after a new agreement and a $50 rebate.
The second phone, Gravity Smart features a four-row slide out QWERTY keyboard, running Android 2.2, T-Mobile’s Group Text service, and a 3MP camera. The Berry Red and Sapphire Blue models check in at $69.99, the Lunar Gray model is a mere $29.99 — both after the usual agreement and $50 rebate.
We did it again, same as we were the first ones of obtaining the official pictures of the Samsung Vibrant, now we give you the first official pictures of the T-Mobile G2. As you know the T-Mobile G2 is going to be the first HSPA+ phone running speeds up to 11mbps. We believe the G2 will only come in one color.. silver, a completely different way when T-MO launched the Slide 3G or G1.
UPDATE: According with HTC, Walmart web site shows HTC Sense as a feature for the T-Mobile G2
The T-Mobile G2 will feature:
- Android OS w/ HTC Sense
- 3.7″ Active Matrix OLED display
