If you were still having second thoughts about which Smartphone to get this holiday Season, T-Mobile just decided to make it so much easier for you. They've just dropped the price of the white version of their Samsung Galaxy S II to just $99 after the typical two-year contract. The deal involves a $50 mail-in rebate, so don't think you won't need anything other than the $99. If you have any doubts over going for a white smartphone as your next device, think of all the finger print smudges you won't see any more after you switch. This deal is only valid through Sunday, so act once you ...

Earlier this week, we learned about plans to finally deliver an update that enabled, among other things, placing voice calls over a WiFi connection for the HTC Amaze 4G on T-Mobile. The history of that update, which a leak had previously identified as planned for arrival in mid-November, was closely tied to that of the Galaxy S II. In fact, when we finally heard an update on the rumor that claimed the new software would show up this month, it specifically referenced the GS2 instead of the Amaze. Despite that, we saw the Amaze make the upgrade on Monday, with the Galaxy S II seemingly left ...

We've heard about a white version of the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II since the end of November but we've also heard that the carrier is planning a December 14 event together with Nokia, possibly for the Lumia 710 Windows Phone. It appears that on the same day, December 14, Magenta will make available the white variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II. Expect the pale version to be exactly the same specs-wise as the regular variant. As far as pricing is concerned, it should be available for the same amount as the black one (which, by the way, is now available for $229.99 online at the carrier). ...

As part of their "Find the Elf Twitter Contest" T-Mobile USA is giving away a Samsung Galaxy S II to the second customer at each of its stores this morning. From what we can put together, entrants must still enter the contest according to the official rules, which requires sending a public tweet in the presence of the Elf. The tweet must contain the following information: "@TMobile I found the Elf #FindtheElf Official rules here: http://goo.gl/wukf1" If any of you have further information (or win a Galaxy S II today) please let us know in the comments!

It was only a few hours ago that we first learned of plans to bring the BlackBerry Bold 9900's alternate white color option to T-Mobile, thanks to a helpful leak. Maybe T-Mobile's already got thoughts of winter snow on its mind, as we see it continue with this theme of white smartphone as we learn of plans to bring the Samsung Galaxy S II in white to the carrier. The white Galaxy S II isn't anything new on its own, already available at carriers around the globe, but just as the US was late to the Galaxy S II party in the first place, availability of the smartphone in white is similarly on ...

WiFi calling is a great feature for the T-Mobile phones that support it; it can let you make calls from deep within buildings where cellular signals struggle to penetrate, and if you've got the right plan option these voice calls won't even count against your minutes. Of course, this feature is only useful if your smartphone supports it. A new leak shows that T-Mobile is at work on bringing WiFi calling to a couple more Androids, and that it hopes to release the needed updates shortly. A leak last month claimed that WiFi calling would be enabled for the Samsung Galaxy S II and HTC Amaze 4G ...

The Samsung Galaxy S II and the iPhone 4S have a lot going for them: dual-core CPUs, fantastic cameras, slender form factors, and great hardware. In this video we compare both devices with multiple tests: web browsing, gaming, video quality, digital personal assistants, and a whole lot more. Check out the video below for the full video. In terms of specs, the Galaxy S II is better-equipped than the iPhone 4S. It has a faster CPU, and more RAM. While the display of the Galaxy S II is 0.8" larger than that of the iPhone 4S, it's got a much lower pixel density at 216ppi vs 326ppi.

T-Mobile's variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II is available online since last week and it appears that the Qualcomm chip inside it does a really great job even compared to the models shipping with the manufacturer's own Exynos SoC. On the software side, going to the Samsung Open Source Release Center and searching for the string SGH-T989 will return a ROM. The manufacturer posted the system for anyone who wants to take a look under the hood. Some developers will start doing their usual tear-down of the software and we can see some nice improvements to custom ROMs. If you're curious, hit up ...

If you've been waiting for either one of these two phones, you should be happy to find out that both the Samsung Galaxy S II and the HTC Amaze 4G are now available on T-Mobile's website. The T-Mobile Galaxy S II packs a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, HSPA+ capability, but won't be powered by Samsung's own Exynos processor but will use a Qualcomm chip APQ8060 clocking at 1.5GHz. It goes for $229.99 with a two-year contract. The HTC Amaze 4G packs a similar 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, has NFC support, and a 4.3-inch qHD display which packs more pixels than the Galaxy S II. Both the ...

Sprint's set to be getting its Galaxy S2 first amongst US carriers, but who will be second? T-Mobile just made its own announcement regarding the smartphone, but doesn't narrow the release date range down to more than "this fall". Like the Sprint Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch, T-Mobile's Galaxy S2 will also have a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED+ screen, a slight upgrade over the presently available international model. All the US carriers are advertising their GS2s as 4G, and as this is T-Mobile, that means HSPA+. Samsung has put out a blanket press release announcing the phone on all three carriers, ...
