T-Mobile Launches WiFi-Cellular Service

Looks like T-Mobile quietly launched its dual WiFi/cellular phone service called “T-Mobile Hotspot @ Home” yesterday in Seattle. Potential customers can sign up for the service at www.theonlyphoneyouneed.com. The T-Mobile service is based on Unlicensed Mobile Access, UMA, which is a big boost for the standard, and will work over the two launch handsets the Nokia 6136 and Samsung T709. We previously wrote about T-Mobile’s UMA plans, and had been expecting the service last month.
