T-Mobile still doesn't have an iPhone, in case you didn't know. (A fact we're perfectly OK with.) But it does have yet another news release explaining why. Apparently Apple won't make one that will work on T-Mobile's 3G and 4G networks. (Never mind that AT&T's apparently trying to call its HSPA+ iPhone 4S a 4G device.)
Anyhoo, TMo's Andrew Sherrard, senior vice president of marketing, just wants to remind y'all that they do have other devices with faster speeds, bigger screens, "compelling service pricing," more choice, and how about a "more advanced camera on the HTC Amaze 4G." And how about that 4.52-inch Super AMOLED display on the Samsung Galaxy S II?
It's yet another bizarre news release from the carrier whining about not having the iPhone (What? That's what it is.) while trumpeting Android. While we're perfect happy about the latter, we could do without seeing Android lumped in with the former, ya know?
Check out the full missive after the break.
T-Mobile thinks the iPhone is a good device and we’ve expressed our interest to Apple to offer it to our customers. Ultimately, it is Apple’s decision. The issue remains that Apple has not developed a version of the iPhone with technology that works on our fast 3G and 4G networks. We believe a capable version of the iPhone for our 3G and 4G networks would offer an additional compelling option for our customers on a fast 4G network. However, the iPhone is not the only option to experience the benefit that smartphones offer.
T-Mobile’s 4G smartphones stack up against competitive smartphones in terms of functionality, speed, features offered and overall experience – including the iPhone 4S. Reports continue of iPhones not operating well on some carrier networks, while our latest 4G smartphones offer many advantages vs. the iPhone 4S:
- Capable of faster speeds
- Bigger screens
- Compelling service pricing
- More advanced camera on the HTC Amaze 4G
- More choice
We firmly believe that T-Mobile’s portfolio will give any iPhone a run for its money. We offer the increased processing power and faster 4G speeds achieved by our fastest smartphones, the most advanced camera of any smartphone on the HTC Amaze 4G, and our industry-leading 4.52” super AMOLED display offered on the Samsung Galaxy S II.
With our portfolio of Android, Windows, and BlackBerry smartphones, fast 4G network, and competitively priced worry-free unlimited talk, text, and data plans, we believe it’s a great time to be a T-Mobile customer.
