T-Mobile to offer Motorola Charm for free with family plansAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Motorola's Charm, headed for T-Mobile, has been featured in a T-Mobile poster in the past, and now we're seeing it pop up again. Engadget has received a tip that the Motorola Charm, which still doesn't have a release date, will be free when purchased with a T-Mobile family plan. Surrounded by several new dumbphones, the Moto Charm seems to be the most capable device of the bunch featured. It may not be the highest-specced Android device on the market, but for the low, low price of free, it's hard to argue against the Charm. So, T-Mobile, considering we know just about everything else about the phone, how about giving up the Charm's release date?
Considering that the Charm is the first portrait QWERTY Android phone (besides the original prototype device shown off at Android's unveiling), I'm sure that it will gain some considerable interest no matter the price or specs. When it's free on contract, there are going to be more than a few customers looking for a first smartphone that will snag the Charm, especially since it does have a physical QWERTY. Now T-Mobile needs to offer the Charm for free on any contract and it'll be sure to charm a ton of users.
