There's just nothing like good old fashioned competition
, but it always gets interesting when the challenger rolls in with pretty much the exact same product
. Interestingly enough, this seems to be the case with T-Mobile's latest attempt to yank some 3G market share from Vodafone
, which released its own oval-shaped HSDPA modem
not too long ago. T-Mobile's rendition may look the part, but the pricing is where it differentiates itself, as the firm will reportedly be offering the unit up for just £29.99 ($61) with a one-year contract, or free if you sign your name to an 18- or 24- month deal. Moreover, the monthly data charge for "unlimited" usage is the same as the one-year purchase price, which looks mighty tasty compared to Vodafone's seemingly outrageous £53 ($106) monthly fee for the same privledge. The modem looks to be available on T-Mobile's UK site right now, so if you were moments away from pulling Vodafone's trigger
, you can thank your lucky stars.
