As mentioned in an earlier post I picked up the Blackberry curve and stuck with Tmobile. Now, September 23rd looks to be their launch date for a stellar 3G phone, running on Google’s cellular operating system Android. What is a tech-nerd to do? I am locked into a 2 year agreement and am no where near contract extension discount time. Moreover, Sacramento is scheduled to get 3G in October. To be honest though my BB Curve is going the distance and making my life much easier: public transit routes, maps for biking, restaurant look ups, AIM, messaging, e-mail, etc. etc. The operating system though leaves much to be desired as does screen size. Android’s interface and the HTC Dream’s design and functions could make this a real “iphone” killer. I’m not too interested in the latter part, but if it is a solid phone I might have to get my hands on one within a year. Additionally, I have had great experiences and reception with Tmobile. Whereas AT&T has been nothing but a fiasco as of late, even leading to lawsuits.
In the end I did get the BB curve for free and made $50 back. The Dream may run $199 w/2year agreement or extension. Since I’m not in that ballpark it may run over $300-$400. With the 3G roll out, partnership with Google and HTC, Tmobile looks to get into the cellular game with great ferocity. By the time my extension time is near awesome tech. will be had!
