As the old year winds down a sense of hope arises that the hints and inklings of new products and services that have been leaking out over the past months may actually materialise in the New Year. Some of them are products that vendors have solidly promised and assigned release dates to, some are part of vaguely marked road maps and some are simply pipedreams fuelled by persistent rumours. Others are services or intriguing situations that could arise. Regardless, here are some of the ones that have caught our eye and that we hope turn out to be as eye catching in reality.
T-Mobile vs AT&T
Wireless carrier T-Mobile is targeting AT&T customers, hoping to lure them away with the promise of better coverage and the ability to bring their current iPhone with them. T-Mobile’s Value Plan that charges just for services and not for subsidising phones, makes the scheme even more attractive. T-Mobile will still sell phones, just bill for them separately from cellular services. The company’s feisty slogan: You love your iPhone, you hate AT&T.
