Today, T-Mobile announces that Metro PCS will now be called “Metro by T-Mobile”. Along with this re-branding, Metro is updating its rate plans by replacing its tiered data plans with two main unlimited plans starting at $50 ($60 for the higher-tiered one). Presumably,...

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL show up in both black and white in 'really official' renders

When it rains, it pours. The old saying applies to both high-end smartphone announcements scheduled for next month and high-quality images of said devices leaked today by WinFuture’s always reliable Roland Quandt.Of course, unlike those fresh Huawei Mate 20 Pro renders, which helped answer a number of outstanding questions, clearing some confusion and revealing three nifty color options, the latest batch of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL pictures largely falls into the “more of the same” category.But both Google-made handsets are shown from every possible angle in what Quandt describes as “really official press pics”, which is definitely a...
