When I signed up for T-Mobile one year ago, I didn't expect to sit around in envy halfway through my service agreement as other wireless vendors pump out one awesome smartphone after another. The G1 I snagged was supposed to be a precursor of things to come, only it hasn't quite worked out that way.
Maybe things are getting ready to change, or perhaps it's just wishful thinking, Either way, T-Mobile is now offering the Nokia E73 Mode smartphone built around the Symbian platform. It's the thinnest full QWERTY keyboard smartphone in T-Mobile's stable, and with the Switch Mode feature that let's users switch between customizable home screens, T-Mobile's billing this one as ideal for both work and play.
Some of the other features include a 5MP camera with flash and auto-focus, 3G support, Bluetooth, microSD memory card slot, built-in GPS receiver with Ovi Maps and Nokia's turn-by-turn navigation service, Microsoft Exchange support, a 2.4-inch QVGA (320 x 240 display), and of course Wi-Fi.
The phone costs $70 with a two-year service contract, or $300 by itself. As for me? I'm still holding out for a compelling Android phone to entice me to stay with T-Mobile 12 months from now.
What smartphone are you rocking, and are you planning to upgrade anytime soon?
