T-Mobile is finally starting to rollout their 3G network and there was much rejoicing to start off MobileTechRoundup show #132. We also kicked around the rumor that AT&T may subsidize the next 3G iPhone and last week they were offering WiFi access for iPhone owners. However, that pipe may have been closed now. I just purchased a Celio REDFLY and it actually just arrived yesterday so look for some more feedback on my blog. The HTC Advantage 7510 updated model is coming out soon and James is quite excited. We also talked about the Kindle and Kevin has actually been using James' for a bit and offers some thoughts. Kevin and James are also a part of the amazing HP 31 Days of the Dragon contest so make sure to enter as often as you can to win this sweet setup worth over US$5,000.
