T-Mobile 3G, Android plans

T-Mobile has planned a number of changes to its service towards the end of 2008, according to unconfirmed reports. Among these is a second indication that the company will launch its 3G broadband network on October 1st, finally introducing competition for AT&T's HSPA network. It is rumored that on the same date T-Mobile will introduce its first Android phone, a 3G-ready HTC Dream. Android is an open-source platform that will be shared across phones from a number of companies.

By the end of the year the carrier is also expected to introduce "MyFaves 2.0," a revision of its unlimited calling plan; though there may be more changes, the major one is said to be a doubling of list size from five callers to 10. The company may also be planning to upgrade its FlexPay system, though any changes have not been revealed.
