Breaking news: Microsoft buys Sidekick-creator Danger, Starbucks drops T-Mobile for AT&TNoah Kravitz - Member
Microsoft announced that they have acquired Danger, Inc., provider of software and services powering many a mobile device including T-Mobile's popular Sidekick family of handsets. One can only imagine that a Windows Mobile Sidekick will soon be in the offing, and maybe WinMob will be getting the "cool teen" treatment as well.
Meantime, Starbucks dropped something of a mini-bombshell in announcing that they're ditching T-Mobile Hot Spots in favor of AT&T Wi-Fi service at some 7,000+ retail outlets across the U.S. The new deal will offer free Wi-Fi access at Starbucks for "qualifying AT&T customers and any Starbucks Card holder" as well as two pay-per-play plans: $3.99 for two hours of access and $19.99/mo for a membership that includes access to all 70,000 or so of AT&T's hot spots across the globe.
