BLACKBERRY

-It runs BlackBerry 10, the newest version of the BlackBerry OS.

-It is $199 with a two-year contract. It's already available from AT&T and will be available at T-Mobile and Verizon later this week.

-The BlackBerry Z10 is the company's first full-touch BlackBerry 10 device.

-It has a 4.2" touchscreen with a 1,280 x 768 display and features LTE.

T-MOBILE

-T-Mobile sits in fourth place behind AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint and is looking to pick up new subscribers by completely eliminating of wireless contracts. You know, those, "you're locked in for x amount of time" deals that you often sign when looking to upgrade your old and busted phone on the cheap.

-If you want to buy a new phone, you still kind of sort of get a discount. Typically, phones are cheap because the cell phone carriers know they'll make up the lost money on the hardware over the two year contract.

-Instead of requiring a contract to pick up a discounted phone, T-Mobile adds a surcharge to your monthly bill for a set amount of time depending on the price of the phone selected.

-Avoiding this fee is easy: just pay for the phone in full when you buy it.

-T-Mobile's base plan for unlimited talking and texting now starts at $50 per month - and includes 500MB of "speedy" data. Technically, it appears as if all of T-Mobile's plans include unlimited data, with the catch being that T-Mobile throttles the data rate down to measly 2G speeds once one exceeds one's paid-for allotment of "high-speed data."

T-Mobile's other plans add two gigabytes of data for every $10 one throws into the monthly pot, including a 2GB high-speed plan for $60 monthly all the way up to T-Mobile's 12GB plan for a mere $110 per month.
