T-Mobile to switch to CDMA and get Push-To-Talk? We don’t think so

By: Shawn April 9th, 2009

(Updated) According to a list obtained by TmoNews, there are a number of HTC and Kyocera devices listed under T-Mobile’s name. As soon as you see the list, the excitement builds, seeing a number of exciting HTC Devices such as:

 

  • HTC Dream
  • HTC Cleo 
  • HTC Excalibur
  • HTC Mapel
  • HTC Opal
  • HTC Rhodium
And the list continues…
Woah, lets rewind for a second. Kyocera? Ever heard of them? They make some nice, rough and tough phones, but we have never seen one on T-Mobile’s lineup. Yes, we admit when we first saw the list we got pretty excited at the number of HTC devices, but then it got a bit weird when we double checked the information, like any good blogger should do. The Kyocera Aktiv K480 was released and discontinued on Western Wireless (CellularOne). It sports CDMA 850 and CDMA 1900. Oh, and lets not forget the Kyocera 3250 CDMA device with Push-To-Talk. 
Sarcasm aside, we admit that we too go caught up in the excitement of the HTC devices listed on this screenshot, but then again, it is a screenshot of a 3rd party computer program showing a number of different devices under T-Mobile’s name. Reasons we don’t believe it:
  • Because we love making lists with bullet points
  • Because two CDMA phones show up
  • Because a number of the phones (Cleo…I believe is the codename for the Shadow) are discontinued
  • Because the scroll bar is tiny, meaning there is a massive list of phones to select from, more then T-Mobile has for sale right now. 
  • Because we don’t know what “Labeltone” is
  • Because the whole thing seems shady. 
T-Mobile and TmoNews, we’d love if you prove us wrong. Those are some great devices that we would like to see released on T-Mobile’s 3G network! This is of course just our analysis of the screenshot. Sound off in the comments and let us know what you think! 
UPDATE: A user from DroidDeveloper told us that:
Ok so this is a screen shot from a system we use to send ringtones back to customers after they have already purchased them the reason there is a drop down for carrier is that if you all remember we recently took over suncom…… secondly the model list is not proprietary to t-mobile it shows phones that we have never had and never will have so that the ringtone that is resent will be compatible with the phone your resending it to
There ya have it. Settled!
