during its IFA press conference in Berlin, Deutsche Telekom presented a new
already heard about - the T-Mobile Pulse. This smartphone, equipped with the
Android operating system, supports the MyCommunity and Media Center services as
well as fast, convenient Internet access. It also includes direct links to
popular Internet services such as Google, Google Mail and Google Maps. In
addition, users can personalize it by downloading any of the thousands of
programs and games available from Android Market.
The HSPA technology used by the T-Mobile Pulse supports Internet connections
of up to 7.2 Mbps downstream and 2 Mbps upstream. The phone's 320 x 480 pixel
display shows over 16 million colors and quickly switches from horizontal to
vertical display format in keeping with the way the phone is held. Its 3.2-MP
autofocus camera takes brilliant photos and videos, and of course the phone can
transmit such media files directly via the Internet. With its integrated GPS
receiver, the T-Mobile Pulse also functions as a compact navigation device.
Headsets and music players can easily be connected via a 3.5 mm TRS connector or
Bluetooth. The phone comes with a black cover, a white cover and a 2 GB microSD
The T-Mobile Pulse is the third Android-based smartphone in T-Mobile's
mobile-device portfolio. With it, Deutsche Telekom again sets itself apart as a
leading provider of smartphones with the Android open-source operating system.
In addition, the T-Mobile Pulse is the first Android-based smartphone that
supports both the MyCommunity and Media Center services. Via MyCommunity, users
can keep constant track of their contacts and get in touch with any of them by
phone call, text message or their online community. Via the Media Center, they
can select personal media content for viewing on their smartphone, computer or
TV set via Entertain and for sharing with other people. On its large touchscreen
display, the T-Mobile Pulse offers a total of six personalizable starting pages
for such applications and for apps simplifying Internet access. With these
helpful tools, mobile users can quickly access whatever they need to access:
their contacts, photos, videos, favorite games, favorite Web sites and favorite
The T-Mobile Pulse will be available from October 2009 and T-Mobile will
begin offering the new phone on an exclusive basis. T-Mobile Germany will offer
it from 4.95 Euro in conjunction with the Combi Flat S plan.
