Rumor: T-Mobile Project Black Isn't a Phone — It's a Rescue Plan

Illustration for article titled Rumor: T-Mobile Project Black Isnt a Phone — Its a Rescue Plan

This unconfirmed memo from Nexus404 says what Project Black isn't: A phone. It also claims Black is a turnaround plan with "blazing speeds" "3x" the competition and phones from hot makers ("Nokia #1 and Samsung #2"). WTF.

All the employees who received the information were required to sign confidentiality agreements. Each sector has received it at different times, the bulk of them actually received it the 13th, after most of the information was already leaked (Although it's not entirely accurate…)

That said, the Project Dark is not any ONE thing..its a term for a company TURNAROUND; Last to First is what some like to say. It's an all inclusive "package" that includes blazing speeds, 3 times faster than anyone will have on the market for years. Phones people actually WANT, using top of the line models from the top 2 cellphone manufacturers in the world (Nokia #1, and Samsung #2). Hot software like Android. And European priced packages.

And all of this will make Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint's head spin when its released faster than anyone can have time to finishing reading any official press releases.

330 Million in new networks Verizon? Try nearly 10 billion.

First of all, assuming this email is real, I don't want—and I am guessing you don't want—any Nokia or Samsung handset. Second of all, I doubt that TMO of all companies, mr late to the game, can deliver speeds that fast, either. But suppose it's true. Then what's that "10 billion" number at the end for? Femtocells everywhere? Who knows! It's a rumor! You're not supposed to know yet!


But if anyone has any more information on TMO's project black, please drop me a line. We'd love to help you tell the world. [Nexus404]

Can't comment on Project Black. But I will say that I'm seriously considering TMo for an Android phone. It's a technology I'd like to support, and I also like their pricing. Yeah, their network has the least coverage. But I'm willing to support them so they can build upon it.
