It looks like T-Mobile is gearing up to launch a new LG handset with a slide-out physical keyboard. It’s called the Optimus F3Q, and as you can see from the image above, it has already been leaked ahead of its official unveiling.
HTC appears to be struggling to sell its flagship HTC One, despite rave reviews, an expensive marketing campaign, and plenty of praise from pundits and users.

Yesterday, AT&T announced new Mobile Share Value plans that were pitched as making subscriber’s monthly rates cheaper if you already own a smartphone.
It seemed like a pretty honest move. Most carriers bill you a set monthly that includes a fee designed to pay off your smartphone’s full prive over a two year period, which is common knowledge. What isn’t common knowledge is that on most carriers, even if you bring your own smartphone to your contract or fully pay off your device, the carrier will continue to bill you for that smartphone subsidy in perpetuity. It’s super sleazy, so AT&T’s move seemed like a refreshing dose of honesty.
That’s not how T-Mobile sees it, though.
AT&T’s new Mobile Share Value Plans are now official, and they’re not only going to save you cash on your data, but they’re going to make your monthly rates even cheaper if you already own a cellphone and you’re happy to hold onto it.
The plans are designed to help AT&T be more competitive against new offerings from T-Mobile and Verizon, and they’ll be available starting this Sunday.
