What is T-Mobile’s Project Dark?

It is easy to overlook some huge stories when you go out of town for a week. PhoneArena was the first to break the story on T-Mobile’s upcoming “Project Dark” (also being called “Project Black”). There is very little known about this special project other than it will be “something so enormous in reach that it is expected to lift T-Mobile out of 4th place among the nation’s wireless operators.”

Some of the speculation for Project Dark include:

  • Rapid expansion of T-Mobile’s new HSPA+ network
  • $50 unlimited everything plan
  • Launch of Samsung Behold II, Motorola Cliq, and Blackberry 9700
  • New uniforms for T-Mobile employees

I have yet to hear anything official on this, but I do have some friends who work at T-Mobile stores and I will check in with them. We attended CTIA last week and I heard absolutely nothing about this from any of the T-Mobile representatives I spoke with.

The mysterious Project Dark is rumored to be unveiled Sunday October 25, 2009.

We have been reporting for quite some time that T-Mobile will launch their HSPA 7.2 service later this year, but all the big sites have been looking over that story. It would be awesome if T-Mobile started rolling out HSPA+ early, but all the current Android phones only support speeds of 7.2 Mbps. Maybe the Samsung Behold II has something special in store we don’t know about.

What do you guys think T-Mobile has up their sleeves? Know something we don’t? Tip us on news.
