The Google Nexus One sold in Europe is UMTS 900/AWS/2100 and GSM 850/900/1800/1900. It'll work fine on T-Mobile USA.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Your Google Nexus One is T-Mobile compatible for high speed data access, so check out the Monthly4G offering.
They offer unlimited talk, text, and web for $50/mo, and a plan with 100 minutes of talk, unlimited text and web for $30/mo with additional minutes for $0.10/min.
Also, if you are willing to spend a little money to get a more advanced phone later on, I'd recommend picking up either a Samsung Galaxy Nexus ($349) or the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G ($300). Both options do not require a contract and are compatible with T-Mobile's HSPA+ network.
I'm including Magic in that. Card games have existed for hundreds of years, but in the last fifty years, they've lost significant popularity.
Perhaps these other games should be respected as well. They offer more complex rules and require far more difficult strategic thinking than classic games like Chess and Checkers.
Personally, I love the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG battle system. It's very complex and offers a wide range of valid strategies to actually win a match. Pokémon offers a similarly complex system, too. In a way, these games have invigorated the flagging card game genre.
While I have no proof to back this up, I suspect that games like these that were popular in the 1990s and early 2000s are the reason why casual puzzle and strategy games are far more popular on computer platforms.
Of course, none of these games get any respect. Most "adults" denigrate these games and believe they are worthless and/or childish. Many of these games are great for mental development in a multitude of areas.
For example, you may have not really thought of the Pokémon TCG as a way for children to develop a good understanding of economics, but it does.
Netflix on Android and iOS use raw video streams. No DRM or other funny business.
Actually, that won't work either. The C++ compiler included with VS Express for Metro apps will have enforced limitations to not allow anything except WinRT C++/CX applications. It simply won't link standard Win32/Win64 link libraries.
Windows 8 WDK won't include one. Neither will the Windows 8 SDK.
Everybody gets this confused. All standardized tests for scholastic purposes measure achievement or potential achievement, not how "smart" someone is. That being said, everyone says that these tests measure how smart you are, which isn't true.
Nature has balance. What is worrying is what will be the consequences of this week-long stint of a heat wave. Likely, we'll see a week-long cold wave sometime in April.
Four parties need to support this for it to work: the caller's handset, the caller's mobile network operator, the recipient's mobile network operator, and the recipient's handset. If all four support the Full HD Voice codec for IMS-Voice (aka VoLTE), then it'll be used. Otherwise, it'll fall back to AMR-WB or AMR-NB.
An LTE iPhone will probably become available this summer.
There's a website you can go to for requesting coverage improvements. http://www.t-mobile-takeaction.com/
You can get high-speed buckets of 200MB, 2GB, 5GB, and 10GB. If you need more, you can get more. That being said, all data plans (except the 200MB one) are unlimited usage, with the exception of how much full-speed data you can use. After that, your speed is cut.
The Nokia N9 works on T-Mobile's HSPA+ network as it is, and as it will be (the Nokia N9 has a pentaband HSPA+ radio). The iPhone will only work on T-Mobile's 2G network for now, though.
Oops, I'm stupid. Sinterklaas is a person, St. Nick to be precise. But part of Santa Claus comes from a Nordic legend about a gift-giving elf.
