CeBIT Brings T-Mobile Plans for Upcoming Year
Germany's own T-Mobile made a splash at CeBIT on its home turf this week. T-Mobile announced lots of new phones and features for the coming year. Of course, this is all coming from Europe's T-Mobile, not to North America. First up, a slew of new web'n'walk models (T-Mobile's cute term for data peripherals) will offer downlink speeds upgradeable to 7.2Mbps and uplink up to 1.4Mbps (thanks to HSUPA) in PC Card, ExpressCard, and desktop box form factors.
With regards to new phones, T-Mobile's committed to offering a three very intriguing models with the Nokia E90 and N95 both in the cards along with the HTC-sourced Ameo. Music lovers will love the Sony Ericsson W880i. Other highlights included the promised mid-2007 introduction of "Super SMS," a chat-centric text app that'll allow users to create a buddy list and other features typically associated with traditional instant messaging -- and best of all, it'll be compatible with a number of existing handsets. WE can only hope that these phones and features will soon be available for American T-Mobile customers.
T-Mobile's press releases and strategy for 2007 are now available on their international site here: http://www.t-mobile-international.com/CDA/07-03-14_tmo_de_cebit_07,20,,newsid-5457,en.html
