T-Mobile US, Inc. (NYSE:TMUS) today expanded its fast-growing device line-up with new options from Samsung. Beginning today, T-Mobile is now taking online pre-orders for Samsung’s stunning Galaxy Note® 10.1 - 2014 Edition. And – thanks to the Un-carrier’s Tablet Freedom program – customers can add their new tablet to their voice plan completely free of charge and get nearly 1.2 GB of free 4G LTE data every month through the end of 2014 – and 200 MB of free data for life every month after that.
“In todays connected world, there is just no good reason people should feel stuck with a Wi-Fi-only tablet,” said Jason Young, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing for T-Mobile. “Our Tablet Freedom effort is a full-on assault against those restrictions that keep tablet owners from experiencing life beyond the Wi-Fi zone – with a beautiful, unleashed tablet like the Galaxy Note 10.1.”
The Galaxy Note 10.1 helps round out T-Mobile’s rapidly expanding selection of powerful, sleek tablets. With its vivid 10.1” HD screen, fast quad core processor it is sure to amaze. At just $99.99 down (and 24 monthly payments of $23 on T-Mobile’s Equipment Installment Plan), it provides customers who love entertainment on-the-go and want to use multiple applications at the same time (with the ease of a stylus), a sleek new option.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 will be available for immediate purchase online and in participating retail stores nationwide beginning June 4th. For those stuck in a contract with an old carrier, the Un-carrier will pay every penny of your early termination fee (ETF) when you make the switch and upgrade to a new tablet. Simply bring in your tablet to get an instant credit based on its value – which you can apply to your purchase of any tablet, smartphone or accessories. When you get the ETF bill from your old carrier, bring or mail it in and T-Mobile will pay the balance in full.
T-Mobile is also now offering $10 off its most popular mobile internet data plans through the end of the year. For voice customers, this means you can get nearly 1.2GB of free 4G LTE data every month through the end of the year. After 2014, you can continue enjoying life beyond the Wi-Fi zone with data plans starting at just $10 a month with voice service.
Limited Edition Gold Galaxy S®5
In addition, T-Mobile announced that Galaxy fans and the fashion-forward crowd can now get the Samsung Galaxy S 5 in shimmering metallic gold – just in time for summer. Beginning May 30th, the Samsung Gold Galaxy S 5 will be available for a limited time in select T-Mobile retail stores and online at T-Mobile.com.
“We know customers want fashion-forward options, and the new Gold Galaxy S 5 gives them a fun way to show off their rebel style and get the best of Samsung Galaxy technology,” said Young. “Plus, T-Mobile is the only place to get this new device on our popular Simple Choice plan, with no annual service contract, no overages, no upgrade wait, and the world as your network.”

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.

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...

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 ...

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.

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"...

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps.

Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders?
