With the holidays creeping closer each day, T-Mobile is making it easier for families to stay connected with a number of affordable smartphones and low cost data service plans. The T-Mobile Comet is one of the newest smartphones created specifically for T-Mobile with a price of just $9.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate and two-year service agreement. While it won't be the speediest on the market it does feature most of what you'll find in most Android phones. The Comet includes Android 2.2, a 3.2-megapixel camera, FM radio, portable WiFi hotspot, USB tethering, and a 2.8 inch touch screen display (additional features below). One new data plan will make it more affordable to keep connected, light users will be able to get a 200MB plan for $10 a month with a 2 year contract ($15.00 no contract) and the $30.00 unlimited data plan will continue to be available for heavy users. From our experience, most people checking email and web browsing will be fine with just the 200MB plan. Look for the T-Mobile Comet along with the new data plans in store and online starting November 3rd, 2010.
