In the headline and second paragraph, first sentence the registered trademark on the Galaxy S 5 should be Galaxy S® 5 (instead of Galaxy® S 5). Also, insert in the fifth paragraph, first sentence: when the device launches in T-Mobile stores on April 11th.
The corrected release reads:
T-MOBILE DELIVERS SAMSUNG GALAXY S® 5 FOR $0 DOWN AND $1,200 FAMILY SAVINGS OVER THE LIFE OF THE OTHER GUYS’ CONTRACTS
T-Mobile to Begin Online and In-store Pre-orders of Samsung’s Galaxy S 5 March 24th
Un-carrier Will Free You and Your Family from Current Contracts by Paying Off Your ETFs
The Next Big Thing – as they say – is here. And T-Mobile US Inc. (NYSE:TMUS) is serving up Samsung’s latest flagship superphone as it was designed to be used and as only the Un-carrier can – unlimited and un-leashed on their nationwide 4G LTE network.
The company today announced that, starting March 24th, T-Mobile will be the only place to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S® 5 online and in-store for zero down (and 24 monthly payments) and with zero annual service contract, zero overages, zero hidden device costs, zero upgrade wait – and with the world as your network at zero extra cost. And, of course, only T-Mobile customers can experience the blazing-fast Galaxy S 5 on America’s fastest nationwide 4G LTE network.
Also, because owners of Samsung Galaxy devices are among T-Mobile’s heaviest wireless data users, the longer term savings with T-Mobile can be huge. Families with four lines could see an average of over $1,200 in savings over a two-year period compared to families with AT&T and Verizon on a two year contract. And, as always, T-Mobile will pay the early termination fees for that entire family when they trade-in their devices to make the Simple Choice and come over to a better wireless experience.
“This thing is so hot we’ve already seen over a half a million pre-registrations for the Galaxy S 5,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “That’s a lot of very smart people grabbing this opportunity to pay nothing down, save more than a grand over the life of the other guys’ contracts, and have T-Mobile pay off every penny of their family’s early termination fees. It’s a brilliant move.”
The company today also announced that customers who pre-order by March 31st can receive a special, introductory price and be among the first to get the Galaxy S 5 without waiting in line when the device launches in T-Mobile stores on April 11th – guaranteed. Also available until March 31st and in celebration of the launch, T-Mobile is offering $120 off Samsung’s Galaxy Tab® 3 with a Mobile Internet plan and 200MB free data for the life of the tablet.
Introductory pre-order price is $0 down + $27.50/mo x 24; total $660. If you cancel wireless service, remaining balance on phone becomes due. 0% APR O.A.C for well-qualified buyers.
$1,200 claim based on financed Galaxy S 5 on Simple Choice (20 GB data) vs. 2-year contract plans with Verizon and AT&T (4 lines/20GB data) plus anticipated device down payment. Taxes and fees not included. Plan features and limitations vary.
Tab 3 offer avail. while supplies last. Fastest LTE network based on download speeds. Qualifying service & device purchase with port-in on up to 5 lines required for ETF payment. 200 MB free data avail. every 30 days for as long as you own and use registered device with T-Mobile. No roaming. Monthly plan req’d for device financing. See T-Mobile.com for specific offer and service details.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
