OMG OMG, the New Samsung Galaxy S III Phone is Here, Almost – Release Date is June 21 on the T-Mobile

Monday, June 4th, 2012

The highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III is a coming on June 21, 2012, at (achtung, baby!) T-Mobile, (aka Deutsche Telekom AG) anyway – that’s the news.

Oh, it turns out that that big AT&T / T Mobile merger isn’t going to happen, so TMO soldiers on as America’s #4 (and Germany’s #1) cell phone carrier, not that that really affects me. What affects me is that the T-Mobile doesn’t work so hot in the Lower Haight / Between the Haights (BTH) areas, I’ve noticed, lately, for whatever reason. Otherwise TMO is AOK.

This new device is wide. My man-hands will be able to handle it (in about a half-year or so when my re-up time comes), but what about your hands? I don’t know.

Deets from this AM’s release are below.

Well That’s It, the Big AT&T / T-Mobile Cell Phone Co. Merger has been Cancelled – How Will T-Mobile Make It On Its Own?

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

We’ll see.

But I’ll tell you, I’m paying T-Mobile $118 a month (and that includes a whole bunch of tax) for two Samsung Galaxy smartphones, which have  bigger screens, which are lighter, which are better overall than the average Apple iPhone you’ll see about town. And that’s all working out just fine.

AFAIK, I never have network problems. (I have I-need-to-use-WiFi-at-home and I-can’t-get-coverage-in-the-basement-of-the-State-Building issues but I don’t know if that’s T-Mobile’s fault at all, really.)

AT&T is Buying T-Mobile for $39 Billion? Khaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!

Sunday, March 20th, 2011

Now, didn’t I just go out of my way to avoid the American Telegraph & Telephone?

Yes I did.

And aren’t those AT&T offices the private-sector version of a DMV where it’s, for some reason, take a number and have a seat next to the security guard?

Yes it is:

Khaan!
