Last Friday was busier than normal for Apple-related news, and that trend continued right into the weekend, which saw the arrival of iPhone 5-compatible nano-SIMs at T-Mobile retailers, yet another free iCloud storage bump for former MobileMe subscribers and AT&T slashing its return window in half -- which is likely to just send more iPhone buyers to Apple, where a 30-day return window still exists.
After Federal regulators stomped out any hope of AT&T snapping up fourth-placed U.S. carrier T-Mobile, the scrappy magenta network has been making some bold moves in the hope of a comeback -- and those plans now include merging with MetroPCS.
There's always plenty of news we miss throughout the work day, which is where our overnight recap comes in, mopping up the smaller stories and tidbits and putting them on display for all to enjoy. On this fine Tuesday morning, let's kick back and enjoy a handful of these stories before the craziness of Apple's media event tomorrow!
A new report examines how Google was able to ape the iPhone so quickly, but why its Android tablet efforts have lagged so far behind the iPad -- and like many stories out of Cupertino, it all goes back to Steve Jobs.
All signs are pointing to T-Mobile USA again being left out in the cold when the sixth-generation iPhone is presumably revealed next week, but that doesn't mean the carrier won't have a strategy in place to combat the problem.
September is shaping up to be a very interesting month for the mobile industry, even if a certain Cupertino company named after a fruit doesn't release a new iPhone. Case in point: T-Mobile is returning to "truly unlimited" data plans beginning September 5.
The U.K. mobile market may soon see some disruption, courtesy of Orange and T-Mobile, who are rumored to join forces and rebrand as Everything Everywhere in October, and an 4G LTE iPhone could be the club they use to beat back competitors.
It's gotta hurt being the only major U.S. carrier without the iPhone, and the proof of this dilemma is certainly being shown in T-Mobile USA's second-quarter, during which time more than half a million subscribers jumped ship for greener pastures.
All Googled out from the company's two-hour keynote extravaganza this morning? We can't blame you -- after all, we've never seen any Apple executives skydiving over Moscone West to show off future products! However, today's recap is guaranteed to be 80 percent Google-free -- and the 20 percent we do chat about might make App Store lovers a little green with envy. So let's skydive right into the news for this Wednesday, June 27, 2012.
