T-Mobile prepares to bid farewell to half dozen Android handsets

T-Mobile prepares to bid farewell to half dozen Android handsets

T-Mobile has started clearing their shelves in an attempt to make room for new smartphones and tablets.  As you know it’s a new year and we’re expecting a host of products to be announced at Mobile World Congress and CTIA.  And when you have stuff like the HTC Ville on the horizon then you won’t want to hang on to last year’s models for very long.  So what’s getting cut?  According to information gathered by TmoNews, there are no less than six devices on the chopping block.

The list of phones nearing end of life includes the following Android handsets.

  • HTC myTouch 4G Slide
  • HTC Sensation 4G
  • HTC Amaze 4G
  • LG Doubleplay
  • LG myTouch
  • LG myTouch Q

 

As to exactly how long it takes before these models are completely gone will vary from device to device.  It’s possible that we could see some stick around for a while, especially given that T-Mobile is still advertising them.  Others like the LG devices never really got any love nor will they likely be missed.
